Man Proposes To Girlfriend At ‘Black Panther’ Viewing

Black Panther TV Spot Super BowlAt a Thursday night screening of Black Panther, a man proposed to his girlfriend dressed as the title character.

According to witnesses, a man went into a Brooklyn Alamo Drafthouse theater dressed as Black Panther and proposed to his girlfriend. The man reportedly said that his future better half would be in the theater with her friends and surprised her with his visit. The theater erupted in applause when she said yes. The man then left the theater as he did not have a ticket to the film that night.

The story then exploded on twitter as people shared it on social media with the Black Panther hashtag.

It seems that the film will not only be a cultural milestone for the superhero genre but also a film that began at least one new family.

Directed by Ryan Coogler, the film stars Chadwick Boseman, Michael B. Jordan, Lupita Nyong’o, Danai Gurira, Martin Freeman, Daniel Kaluuya, Angela Bassett, Letitia Wright, Winston Duke,  Florence Kasumba, Sterling K. Brown, Andy Serkis and John Kani. Here is a synopses for the film:

“Black Panther” follows T’Challa who, after the events of “Captain America: Civil War,” returns home to the isolated, technologically advanced African nation of Wakanda to take his place as King. 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.
