After the social media embargo on Marvel’s Black Panther was lifted, a handful of critics took to Twitter to lavish praise upon the film, calling it “the best Marvel film ever made”.
The film, which is the Marvel Cinematic Universe’s first superhero flick to feature a predominantly black cast, sees Chadwick Boseman reprise his role as the titular avenger alongside Michael B Jordan, Lupita Nyong’o and Oscar nominee Daniel Kaluuya.
Black Panther looks, feels and sounds unlike any Marvel film to date. A visual feast. Wakanda is amazingly realized, the antagonist actually has an arc with emotional motivations. Marvels most political movie. So good. #BlackPanther
BLACK PANTHER is incredible, kinetic, purposeful. A superhero movie about why representation & identity matters, and how tragic it is when those things are denied to people. The 1st MCU movie about something real; Michael B. Jordan’s Killmonger had me weeping and he’s the VILLAIN
Something else I love about 'Black Panther' is Ryan Coogler found an organic way to talk about important real world issues without it feeling preachy or fake. That's hard to do in any movie but to make it work in a big #Marvel movie is even more impressive. #LongLiveThekingpic.twitter.com/lHHicc1Mxw
