“I’ve loved some of the recent Marvel movies – positively loved them – because they’ve amused and tickled and been gloriously bonkers, but this is something else. This is awe.”

“Over the years, we’ve been conditioned to believe superhero films are only about Caucasians saving the world and striving for higher ideals. But the Ryan Coogler-directed joyride is as much about launching an underrepresented race into the mainstream seamlessly and complexly as much as it’s about redefining the rules of entertainment.”

“The most notable element in the film is the rousing social commentary on the Black community – there are both subtle and unsubtle moments that emphasize the need for an oppressed community to rise against fascism regardless of what color the fascists belong to.”

“If the movies have been responsible for tarnishing the reputation of an entire culture, then the responsibility to rebuild it also must fall on them. It has taken a decade… for the Marvel Cinematic Universe to arrive at this point. The road hasn’t always been pretty, but we’re here now.”

“Coogler does for comic book films what Creed did for the boxing genre: not reinvent exactly, but reinvigorate.”

“What gives this story power is that the conflict is character-driven. It isn’t the generic battle between good and evil, which ends with cities blowing up and the hero saving the world. It’s a battle of ideologies in which both the protagonist and antagonist learn from each other… Black Panther speaks to the traumatic history of a continent but it also challenges every perception you might have about Africa and its people.”
