The first social media reactions to Marvel’s Black Panther hit the web last night following the film’s red carpet premiere in Los Angeles.
The film was met with a flood of overwhelmingly positive reviews which praised the film’s diverse cast for what could be one of the best Marvel movies to date just before the studio released the first trailer for Ant-Man and the Wasp. While it’s most certainly a good day to be a Marvel fan, DC fans have taken to Twitter today to voice their dissatisfaction and frustration with the current state of Warner Bros. shared DC Films universe with some fans even taking to DC’s defense before the reactions even hit.
You can check out what DC fans had to say about the reactions to Black Panther below.
Before any Marvel fans try to attack or make fun of DC fans, we called Justice League TRASH execution and quality before anyone else did.
So take a seat.
We also said Black Panther would be great. https://t.co/wiNxslwpWs

I’m a DC salivating over throwing all my money at #BlackPanther . Heroes for everyone might slowly become a reality and Coogler is coming hard for a very white, formulaic, and staid industry. Fucking bring it on! #WakandaForever

Tbh I just done see how the DCEU can survive after 2018. The only people who will be lining up to watch those movies are DC fans just to analyze and critique how bad they are. Marvel is giving us Black Panther and the long awaited 10 year master piece Avengers Infinity War.

I think we all have to ask ourselves, between that fun as hell #AntManandtheWasp trailer, the upcoming #BlackPanther and #InfinityWar – should DC just even stop trying? I think the answer might be yes. Jesus, how hard to compete with.

With all these overwhelmingly positive tweet reviews about @theblackpanther coming out, it’s clear that Marvel paid reviewers. Amirite DC Fan boys?#BlackPantherSoLit#BlackPanther pic.twitter.com/GIeYxO9VA4

So if I wasn't excited enough to see Black Panther the #BlackPanther twitter explosion of the premiere lets me know we have a serious game changer here. In advance, I love DC as much as Marvel, but I want this film to make more than DC's top 3 movies combined to wake them up!

I can't wait for #BlackPanther
as a die hard DC Comic girl i want BP to break box office records and be amazing! why? because it goes to show that minority's can dominate in hollywood and that the black community can bring anything to the table! This can open doors for others!!!

Kinda sucks that the only Jack Kirby creation we've seen come to life in a movie on the DC side is a lame-ass version of Steppenwolf. #BlackPanther

So now that Marvel made #BlackPanther, does that mean that DC is going to step it up and finally make that Static Shock movie? That'd be great.

5 DC Films Warner Bros. Needs To Focus On After ‘Justice League’
Now that Justice League is past us, Warner Bros. is shaking things up. There is now a new head at the studio and with that comes changes. It seems that the studio is easing off the gas when it comes to announcing movies. As of right now there is only Aquaman, Shazam, Wonder Woman 2 and Flashpoint with any sort of true momentum behind them. The Batman, which has a director attached, and a sequel to Man of Steel are also expected, but there’s nothing concrete like release dates for those yet.
The hard part now is figuring out what films Warner Bros. should focus on. There have been numerous films unofficially announced by the studio, with three of them featuring Harley Quinn as a main character. This shows a lack of focus. Now going forward, there needs to be a clear focus as to what movies are coming out.
Here are some suggestions as to what DC films Warner Bros. needs to focus on after Justice League. Click Next to get started!
