Black Panther fans, our time has come.
The movie that all of us lovers of Marvel and superheroes of color have been waiting for, “Black Panther,” has a release date and a leading man, Chadwick Boseman. I’m new to the Black Panther waiting game. Ever since I marathoned the ‘banned in the USA’ cartoon version of the comic on YouTube, I have been metaphorically sitting outside of Marvel headquarters with a sign that read “GIVE US BLACK PANTHER OR GIVE US DEATH!”
In real life, I’ve just been whining to anyone who would listen about why this movie needs to happen. When I found out today that not only do we have a November 3, 2017 release date but Chadwick Boseman, of “42” and “Get On Up” fame, will be playing The Panther I almost did a praise lap.
We’ve gotten a few concept images to pore over as we count down the days, well years, until the movie we’ve all been waiting for since the 90’s hits theaters. Let us know what you think of Boseman playing the Prince of Wakanda.
