Black Panther Was Disappointing to Say the Least

Black Panther Was Disappointing to Say the Least

Ryan Coogler's film can now celebrate another achievement to add to an already burgeoning list as it has been revealed that Black Panther has claimed the highest ever grossing Tuesday at the United States box office for a film in Marvel's cinematic universe.

Black Panther has officially crushed it at the box office and with a movie so big you'd think that there couldn't possibly be anything missing. In fact, based on the films that Black Panther is now in the company of (its opening weekend is wedged between Avengers: Age of Ultron and The Avengers), if the numbers hold firm, it could make it to the coveted $1 billion benchmark. This hilarious nod to Wakanda from the Atlanta airport isn't unfounded either, especially when you consider that much of the movie was filmed on location in metro Atlanta. This is the first time that young black children will go to watch a superhero movie and see superheroes who look like them. And heaven forbid you publicly say anything negative about the film while being Black - you might as well be Clayton Bigsby draped in an All Lives Matter t-shirt.

Marvel has already come under fire after it failed to include a relationship between Okoye and fellow Dora Milaje warrior Ayo.

The Black Panther is directed by Ryan Coogler while Hannah Bleacher assumed the role of the production designer.

"Direct flights daily at 7:30 PM", the airport joked on its Facebook page, which has also shared a video of food blogger Darius Williams trying to book a flight from Hartsfield-Jackson to Wakanda. That is very, very good news as we head into the film's second weekend of release, where it looks like Black Panther is going to have a very strong hold on the box office throne.

Trump Has Been Tougher on Russians Than Obama, Sanders Argues

Like in Black Panther, if the Black gay community has any issue with the so-called "lack of representation" of our community -we're capable of saying so. And while the film is not a religious story, it seems church leaders want its members to see the movie for its positive theme on unity.
