Black Panther

Saturday night when Sharon was in Chicago, I watched Black Panther. The film is a 2018 superhero film based on the Marvel Comics character of the same name. Produced by Marvel Studios and distributed by Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures, it is the eighteenth film in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. The only other films that I have seen in series are Iron Man and Iron Man 2.

The film stars Chadwick Boseman as T'Challa/Black Panther, alongside Michael B. Jordan [Creed], Lupita Wyong'o [12 Years A Slave], Danai Gurira, Martin Freeman, Daniel Kaluuya [Get Out], Letitia Wright, Winston Duke, Angela Bassett, Forest Whitaker, and Andy Serkis. T'cholla is crowned king of Wakanda following his father's death, but his sovereignty is challenged by an adversary who plans to abandon the country's isolationist policies and begin a global revolution.

I am not a Marvel Comics fanboy. I don't have a particular passion for all of these interrelated super hero movies. Nevertheless, I enjoyed the movie and recommend it.

The main reason that I watched the movie is that there is a lot of buzz about Black Panther being nominated for an Oscar. I am starting my quest to watch potential Oscar nominated films early this year. Other films on my list for the next couple of months are BlacKkKlansman, First Man, Widows and A Star is Born.
