"I'm really nervous now because the work is done and now we're just showing it and hoping people are into it".
Because it is about T'Challa, Black Panther is inherently a story about kings and kingdoms, which means it is also a story about fathers, bloodlines and generational strife.
Chadwick Boseman plays the titular character, as mentioned before. That's why Black Panther is such an important film. Now seen as panther claws over a black background, many have reposted the cover to the point it has gone viral. As played by Michael B. Jordan, Coogler's lucky charm, Erik is instantly likable, dangerously sexy, and capable of extraordinary violence. His playful bond with is younger sister Shuri (Letitia Wright), a tech wizard whose inventions kick Tony Stark's and James Bond's to a distant curb. Jordan is a frequent collaborator of Coogler, having led both Fruitvale Station and Creed. The image of Wakandans on stone cliffs above a great waterfall, watching T'Challa fend off challengers to his throne, has mythic resonance - helped, I'd argue (maybe perversely) by the obvious green-screen FX, which suggest a Natural History Museum diorama.
Aiding and abetting this unsafe ploy is Erik Killmonger (a beyond-charismatic Michael B. Jordan of Creed), an ex-US military agent who knows more than he is letting on about the mystical Wakandan way of life. Yet it's The Walking Dead's Gurira who steals the show as the ferocious Okoye, gloriously swinging her spear in a billowing red gown. Danai Gurira steals every scene she is in, Lupita Nyong'o is sumptuous and formidable, while Letita Wright is the most hilarious character of a film that uses its perfectly placed and pitched humor to enhance rather than impeach proceedings. "This film is more than an exercise in diversity for Hollywood, it's a lesson on how to recover and move forward from society's mistakes", she suggested.
Because it is also about Wakanda, Black Panther is inherently a story about Colonialism and a vision of Africa that was allowed to thrive without the imposition of white culture and violence. However, when an old enemy reappears on the radar, T'Challa's mettle as King and Black Panther is tested when he is drawn into a conflict that puts the entire fate of Wakanda and the world at risk.
When Black Panther went on advance sale in the United States, last month, ticket sales were, in the first 24 hours, higher than that of 2016's Captain America: Civil War, which had an opening weekend of $179.1m (£129m) in the USA alone. Ten minutes and one ceremonial duel with rival tribe-leader M'Baku (Winston Duke) later, he's king.
