And as you can imagine, “reactions” have already been posted!
According to Variety.com:
“Jen Yamato of the Los Angeles Times calls it “incredible, kinetic, purposeful. A superhero movie about why representation & identity matters, and how tragic it is when those things are denied to people. The [first] MCU movie about something real; Michael B. Jordan’s Killmonger had me weeping and he’s the VILLAIN.”
“If you don’t understand the power of representation, imagine growing up never seeing a superhero who looks like you. When American Girl dolls came out I always picked Addy who had to escape slavery. But now kids have #BlackPanther’s Nakia, Shuri and Okoye. Dope on many levels.” [Natasha Alford]
Singer Jill Scott tweeted:
“BLACK PANTHER SURPASSED STAR WARS. With gratitude, awe, respect and invigoration, sincerely,”
Many [as you can expect] are flooding all social platforms with GREAT reviews!
