“Black Panther” First Reactions Are Great!
With the Black Panther premiere behind us, celebrities and fans who were present for the early screening took to Twitter to give their impressions.
Black Panther is the latest instalment in the Marvel Cinematic Universe‘s lineup of movies. The movie is directed by Ryan Coogler–director of Creed— and stars Chadwick Boseman, Lupita Nyong’o, Andy Serkis, Martin Freeman and other stellar actors. Black Panther follows T’Challa’s actions after the death of his father in Captain America: Civil War as he returns to Wakanda as the new king.
BLACK PANTHER is fantastic. Beautiful, soulful, thoughtful and of the moment. Ryan Coogler knows what he’s doing. Long live T’Challa!

Shuri, played by @letitiawright, is absolutely delightful. I love that Shuri is so at ease with her brilliance and genius. And her scenes with T’Challa are so funny! #BlackPanther pic.twitter.com/Rch7LfSlqM

#BlackPanther is a love letter about blackness, to a world that often ghettoizes it without realizing that it is on black backs that this planet revolves.

We edited our films across the hall from each other for 8 months. We talked in our edit bays, on walks around the lot. About our films, our dreams. Tonight, his comes true. On my way to the #BlackPanther premiere with a full heart for my fam, director extraordinaire #RyanCoogler! pic.twitter.com/lrxBNRsqeC

BLACK PANTHER is the most spiritual Marvel movie yet! Family and heritage is a big part of the story — there are moments in this movie that get real deep. Danai Gurira is a scene-stealer and the movie elevates whenever Michael B. Jordan shows up. #BlackPanther pic.twitter.com/KIxiAItnEY

#BlackPanther is simply awesome. Extremely bold and as touching as it is thrilling, it boasts GOT-style intrigue, crazy innovative action and a deep bench of memorable characters. Top 5 all-time Marvel movie, easy. More later. pic.twitter.com/mmz8Nuf1sy
