It seems that superhero movies that take a progressive social and political stance tend to garner great success.
The VOXcast crew took the opportunity to share our predictions, theories and speculation for the biggest crossover event ever to hit the silver screen. Who dies? Who lives? Did we get everything right?
VOX ATL sent a group of lucky teens to see “Black Panther” at a private screening at the Fox Theater. Here are all of the stories they wrote, so far.
“Black Panther” intricately weaves together aspects of culture, politics, and principle through an Afrocentric lens. It questions the morality of politics and the political influences of what society considers to be right and wrong.
“Black Panther” truly made a statement with the way the hair was handled in the movie, and it is a message that every young black girl needs to hear.
Marvel’s two royal kings share many similar traits story-wise, despite being very different people.
With “Black Panther” finally upon us, “Avengers: Infinity War” in the near future and the Marvel Cinematic Universe an utter mess, it’s hard to figure out where and how certain things fit into the MCU.
There is no doubt this movie is dedicated to black people. The African-American community needs this movie in this day and age, in the wake of modern-day racism and the Trump era social climate of the US as a whole.
The women in “Black Panther” are important in more ways than one. Not only are they the foundation of the film itself, but they open the doors for more black female representation and will serve as an inspiration to young black girls everywhere.
If you are going to watch this movie without knowing anything about Marvel or its superhero movie franchise, you will have to keep in mind that this is still part of a greater collection of stories. But “Black Panther” can and does stand on its own.
