I could've slept through his first two solo movies, and he was only a bit player in my mind when I watched the first two Avengers films, but with the arc they gave him from Ragnarok into IW they somehow managed to breathe such new life into him that he's suddenly jumped to the top of my list. The most successful superhero movie ever?
I will admit, that after watching Avengers: Infinity War - right before rewatching Black Panther on Blu-ray for review - I was starting to really feel the fatigue of the cinema of superheroes that has taken over multiplexes around the world. There's even a Dora Milaje spin-off that Ryan Coogler has expressed interest in. Their latest release Avengers: Infinity War has not only become the fastest film to go past the $1 billion mark at the worldwide box office, it has also become the highest grossing superhero film of all time. And I've said it before and I'll say it again, it's all thanks to you guys.

Although the weekly cumulative figures for Infinity War won't be officially confirmed until Thursday afternoon, the New Zealand Screen Association's box-office report from the past weekend estimated its reported official haul up until Sunday night as $8,900,503, edging just ahead of original Avengers movie's $8,818,551, recorded in 2012. Black Panther is a feast for the eyes, the ears, the heart and the mind, a film that has action, heart, substance, and soul.

"We knew pretty early on". We are hot for Chris Hemsworth, horny for Chris Patt, want children with Chadwick Boseman, an all-night sex orgy with either Vin Diesel, Bradley Cooper or Idris Elba or preferably altogether and as for that handsome young ass of Tom Holland... "I think it was probably a bigger shock honestly for Ryan Coogler, but here's the good news, I think we were able to deliver a film that stands on its own and that carves out a very special place in the Marvel universe".
