10 Things We Learned From Marvel’s ‘Black Panther’
Black Panther is an integral part of Marvel Comics and it was only a matter of time before he debuted in on the big screen. The character was first introduced in Captain America: Civil War, making an immediate impact and as a standout in the film. Now, close to two years later, the first Black Panther feature film has hit theaters, and the shining gem has become another rousing success for Marvel Studios.
Though Black Panther is, for the most part, a standalone film, it’s still part of a larger cinematic universe. That means things — both big and small — might have reverberations in future films and not just Black Panther sequels. T’Challa and his world have made an impact and are here to stay for the foreseeable future. Take this as your warning, if you haven’t seen the film yet then you might want to come back afterward as there will be massive spoilers ahead.
