Marvel’s Black Panther is finally in theaters and if you haven’t had the opportunity to check this film out yet, you absolutely should. Whether you’re a hardcore MCU fanboy, a die-hard fan of the character in comics, an admirer of one of the dozen or so amazing performers featured in this incredible cast, or just someone who wants to relish in the chance to finally see an African American superhero headline his own film on a scale such as this, you should get everything you’re looking for and more in Black Panther.

The importance of what director Ryan Coogler and company did with this film cannot be overstated. Black Panther is a massive achievement for representation in the same way that Wonder Woman was last year, and most importantly, the film totally delivered, so much so that we have a whole list’s worth of exciting and cool moments to talk about. There are dozens of great little beats, jokes, or lines of dialogue that could fill a list of their own, but these are the bigger moments that either held an emotional weight or just some really kick-ass sequences. Sometimes both.

Before we begin, however, I’d like to point out that with this list comes a major SPOILER WARNING. If you have not yet seen Black Panther, come back after you’ve had the chance to check it out.

So, with no further ado, let’s jump into the Top 10 Greatest Moments in Black Panther
