Boseman plays T'Challa, a prince of the fictitious African nation of Wakanda and a superhero known as Black Panther.

The 55-year-old actor starred as the titular half-human, half-vampire blood sucker hunter in the 1998, 2002 and 2004 action movies based on the Marvel Comics character - but the third film was left with an open ending.

"I think Black Panther spoke to me because he was noble, and he was the antithesis of the stereotypes presented and portrayed about Africans, African history and the great kingdoms of Africa", Snipes told the Hollywood Reporter. But even those movies treated our heros like a joke and Black Panther didn't play that.

Coogler's cast boasts a who's who of black actors-the first time that a Marvel superhero movie has featured a predominantly non-white cast.

With an wonderful cast and a great storyline, "Black Panther" is set to make history. "It's 100% African & it is dope". Acting, yes, with special props given to Michael B. Jordan.

Anti-Padmaavat protest: Schools to remain close
The opposition party also slammed the BJP government in Haryana over its "failure" to maintain law and order in the state. Meanwhile, stones were pelted at the PVS mall in Uttar Pradesh's Meerut allegedly in protest against the film.

While the huge positive first reactions are sure to boost the film's earning in the domestic and worldwide box office, Black Panther was already on the same road thanks to Marvel's unbelievable promotion via its trailers and promo production images.

The hard truth is that there have been 17 Marvel movies (including Spider-Man: Homecoming, Marvel's joint venture with Sony), and none of them have had a woman or person of color as the titular or central character.

Tre'vell Anderson of the Los Angeles Times called "Black Panther" a "love letter about blackness".

We're calling it now: Black Panther will be one of the year's most celebrated films.

"Black Panther" opens nationwide February 16 and stars Chadwick Boseman as T'Challa/Black Panther, alongside Michael B. Jordan, Lupita Nyong'o, Danai Gurira, Martin Freeman, Daniel Kaluuya, Letitia Wright, Winston Duke, Angela Bassett, Forest Whitaker and Andy Serkis. They said that it was by far the most political Marvel had ever been - Captain America: Winter Soldier and Thor: Ragnarok were also considered uncommonly political for Marvel - and they singled out Michael B Jordan's performance as Killmonger, the main villain. Fans will have to wait for Black Panther to hit theaters before learning what exactly the post-credits scenes contain.
