Black Panther!

Black Panther strikes. Chadwick Boseman is the star of the newest Marvel Comics franchise.

Marvel Studios will release the critically acclaimed movie Black Panther and it is Certified Fresh by Rotten Tomatoes, the user generated movie review site.

The ticket sales are on fire.

CNN reports huge turnout is expected.

The impressive pace of ticket sales is a measurement of enthusiasm for a highly-anticipated film that was years in the making. Whether "Black Panther" will break more records on opening day and in the weeks following remains to be seen. The movie opens on February 16.
The film has already amassed rave reviews from fans on social media following Monday's world premiere. Box office success would simply reinforce the superhero genre as one of the most bankable in Hollywood. When tickets went on sale earlier this month, "Black Panther" broke Fandango's presale ticket record for Marvel Cinematic Universe films in its first 24 hours, a record previously held by 2016's "Captain America: Civil War."
Of the top ten biggest opening weekends of all time, five are superhero films. At the top is 2012's "The Avengers" at $207 million, making it the fourth biggest opening of all time behind the last two "Star Wars" films and "Jurassic World."
Industry analysts are projecting that "Black Panther" could open at around $130 million or higher, but they caution that it's still too early to tell.

The film is being directed by Ryan Coogler and it stars Chadwick Boseman as T'Challa/Black Panther. It also features Michael B. Jordan, Lupita N'yongo, Danai Gurira, Martin Freeman, Daniel Kaluuya, Letitia Wright, Wintson Duke, Angela Bassett, Forest Whitaker, and Andy Serkis.

T'Challa returns to his kingdom of Wakanda and found himself usurped.

He is faced with an enemy who seeks to overthrow him and destroy his kingdom. Black Panther reluctantly teams up the American CIA to stop a global war being sparked by a secret operative organization.

Jordan will take the role of Erik Killmonger.

It is expected to sweep box office records.

It is also reported that the White extremists who label themselves as the alt right is trying to sabotage the film and bemoan about the cast.

We also want to report that Marvel Comics chairman and famed comic writer Stan Lee was taken to the hospital. Lee was reportedly feeling ill.

The 95 year old celebrity often makes an appearance in Marvel films.

He is giving his blessing to the movie and hopes to be there for the premiere.
