Black Panther is finally out in cinemas!
CREATED BY STAN Lee and writer-artist Jack Kirby, Marvel’s Black Panther made his debut in Fantastic Four #56 in July 1966 and is the first superhero of African descent to appear in mainstream American comics. As hardcore comicbook geeks, we couldn’t be more excited to see this iconic character get a fitting standalone debut as Black Panther releases in UAE cinemas today. Rated by The Guardian as ‘a rollicking good ride’, the film has drawn critical acclaim from most reviewers, with Oklahoma Daily’s Alison Weintraub saying, “The first thing you’ll notice in Black Panther isn’t the all-star cast or the incredible special effects — it’s the costumes. There is a brightness in Wakanda, the fictional African nation where most of the movie takes place, especially when compared to other Marvel movies.” We particular love the stills of Lupita Nyong’o looking fierce in her role as the warrior Nakia. Needless to say we can’t wait to head to the cinemas tomorrow! Rotten tomatoes gives it 97% tRivia: The name “Wakanda” comes from The Wakamba Tribe of kenya, also knoWn as The kamba.
