With what's been a tremendous marketing campaign now winding down, and advanced ticket sales for the film promising big numbers at the box office, all signs point to another monster hit for Marvel, and we'll know soon enough if that's indeed the case.
The new Marvel movie, Black Panther is making news for plenty of reasons.
The Panther film is on track to become one of the biggest ever Marvel films, going by its ticket pre-sales, the media reports.
Another compelling revelation: the all-female Dora Milaje, the secret service that swears allegiance to the king (not that T'Challa can't handle most threats on his own) fights with a kind of collective consciousness.
"Black Panther" will see the return of Chadwick Boseman as the titular character. There's a palpable sense of excitement in the air swirling around Ryan Coogler's upcoming Black Panther, which will claw its way into theaters on February 16th. He debuted as T'Challa in "Captain America: Civil War", which opened to an impressive $179 million when it arrived in theaters in May 2016.
One of the stars of the movie is Lupita Nyong'o, she is an Oscar victor, but that doesn't necessarily mean she can get tickets to her own movie.
The film also stars Martin Freeman, Daniel Kaluuya, Letitia Wright, and Winston Duke, with Angela Bassett, Forest Whitaker, and Andy Serkis.
