"This is.it's not just a movie. It's a movement. People are excited about the cultural aspect of it", said Chadwick Boseman, who plays the lead. The press were allowed to share their reactions on social media before official reviews go live, and they're overwhelming positive.
Our hearts can not stop racing after seeing these pictures of Chadwick Boseman looking like a proud Wakandan King. However, the spotlight is also being aimed at Michael B. Jordan. Can we just take a second to revel in the goodness that is Lupita Nyong'o for a moment? "We had Germany and the United Kingdom and Canada and Nigeria and Ghana and South Africa".
"You feel like you're doing something that's never been done before".
When it comes to superhero movie first reactions, Black Panther's included, they all tend to shout the same chorus: that it's the best superhero movie ever.
"[Black Panther] was lovely. we should keep celebrating. who's out there?" tweeted Glover, who'll also be seen as Lando Calrissian in Solo: A Star Wars Story and the voice of Simba in The Lion King. They discussed promoting the film in South Korea for the Winter Olympics, Boseman being honored as the Most Popular American Actor in China at the Chinese American Film Festival, and Boseman's secretive screening process. We're still recovering from seeing some of these looks for the first time!
Bassett summed up the excitement succinctly: "All the world has been waiting". "I've been waiting, as have all the fans, you know, all the comic book aficionados".
The hard part now is figuring out what films Warner Bros. should focus on.
