Marvel has started promoting Black Panther, and while not my favorite character in the comics, I’m ready for this movie.
When I started reading comics in the 1970s, Black Panther was pretty much a character that just randomly showed up from time to time to help out another hero. He really didn’t have a mainline story to follow, so I just never got that into him. Never was that I disliked him, I just simply didn’t have enough exposure to him.
With him fully in the MCU now, and his solo movie clearly calling on a lot of his past, it may be time for me to rectify that oversight in my comic knowledge.
We finally see Ulysses Klaue (Andy Serkis) getting his sonic weapon, so that should be awesome. He has always been a big threat to Panther, so I’m interested to see where they take this. But, clearly, Killmonger (Michael B. Jordan) will be the big threat of the film.
The film looks awesome and I can’t wait to see where Marvel takes this.
Black Panther hits theaters on Feb. 16, 2018.
