Marvel’s Black Panther
I have been waiting for the Black Panther release for way too long after reading the Black Panther graphic novel and was so excited to see Chadwick Boseman turn up as the Black Panther in Captain America: Civil War in 2016.
I even recently photographed the cool dude himself, ‘Roots Manuva’, brandishing his copy of a ‘Black Panther’ graphic novel. Dressed all Dappa, wearing his Uptown Yardie’s shoes, we set up a location, which made Roots Manuva look as if he was still in the 1940’s / 1950’s. I have always been a Black Panther fan, and excited to just seeing the Afro-futurism on the big screen, or images that explore Africa being of a higher technological civilisation. It is so over due, and cannot wait to see the amazing cast; Michael B. Jordon, Lupita Nyongo, Forest Whitaker to name a few.
As a warm up, I would also recommend ‘Message From The King’, for fans to watch. This another film which Chadwick Boseman has starred in and executively produced, which shows him delivering a powerful performance.
Bring it on Marvel, looking forward to seeing how this all unfolds in the cinemas..!
