It is the 18th film in the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU).

Critics praised its direction, writing, acting (particularly that of Boseman, Jordan, and Wright), costume design, production values, and soundtrack, but some criticized the visual effects.

Black Panther was nominated for seven awards at the 91st Academy Awards, winning three, and received numerous other accolades. It was the first superhero film to receive a Best Picture nomination, and the first MCU film to win several categories. A sequel, Black Panther: Wakanda Forever, was released in 2022, while a television series set in Wakanda is in development for Disney+.


Jan (Age 12): ★★★★1/2

"Brilliant film! I really enjoyed watching it. T'challa and T'chaka were played perfectly. Most characters were great, but Klaue was weird. Killmonger was amazing, his personality was weird but it became clear in the end who he exactly was. Agent Ross was okay, Nakia was mid, Shuri was pretty good, and M'baku was kinda confusing, but he still was great.

I loved how wakanda was a hidden metropolis, how they hid themselves, and how reluctant they were to share all of their vibranium.

Overall, it was an amazing film, with few strange characters, and a brilliant superhero at the center of it all. Next I'm watching Avengers: infinity war."
