Black Panther: The Best Marvel Movie Of All Time


Deartis Mason, Sports Recorder

On February 16th another Marvel movie was released, Black Panther. Ever since this movie came out, everyone who’s seen it has been giving it nonstop praise and it’s been described as a “cultural phenomenon”. This film took almost $292 million in the North American box office and they made $22 million more than “The Avengers” made in its first week.  So far, this movie has made $228 million internationally  –  led by the UK with $31.9 million and making $520 million worldwide total. Black Panther will be released on March 9th for places like China and has the potential to become the highest grossing comic book film of all time. A lot of people thinks that Black Panther has out done The Avengers and social media says that it’s the highest grossing MCU film in its first week.

Produced by Marvel Studios and distributed by Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures, Disney has donated $1 million to the Boys and Girls Club of America in celebration of the film’s success.  They stated, “Black Panther is a masterpiece of movie-making and has become an instant cultural phenomenon, sparking discussion inspiring people young and old and breaking down age old industry myths.”

I most definitely encourage people to watch this movie. Honestly I have never heard of Black Panther until this movie came out, so I am kind of glad because I got to watch a Marvel movie with  strong black characters and I thought that was so cool.
