Everyone is buzzing about the latest Marvel film and with good reason. Black Panther explores a culture rarely, if ever, touched upon in superhero movies and has been rightly admired for portraying a majority black cast to look up to. Boseman was brilliant, all the actors/characters were, but I was in love with Gurira aka Okeye. Powerful, beautiful and funny, she’s a kick-ass actress playing a kick ass character. Though Marvel have never shied away from strong female characters, it was refreshing to see the King of Wakanda surrounded by warrior women instead of men. The plot was a fairly typical storyline for a superhero movie but the backdrop freshened up the, of late, stale Marvel series. I’m excited for what comes next.
