The first reviews for Marvel's Black Panther have arrived online and they're overwhelmingly positive. In the end though, you just never know about these things. Credible, fun and rewarding, Black Panther chapter 18 in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, is a must-see film. And for Black Panther, we see that women are no longer sexualized or judged by their beauty. Coogler and the famously nicknamed "House of Ideas" Marvel Studios put together an all-star cast of the best and brightest of black actors and actresses both up and coming and long-established.

The actor got his break after a decade as an obscure television and indie film actor when Marvel came calling in 2014 with a lucrative five-picture deal to play Black Panther.

The strain is visible, especially in the performance of Chadwick Boseman as Prince T'Challa - the eponymous Black Panther.

"Black Panther is visually stunning, from the backdrop of Wakanda to the handsome, intricate costumes, with technology playing an important role throughout", said Jimmy Pitaro, Chairman, Disney Consumer Products and Interactive Media. And his affection for Nakia, one of Wakanda's spies-at-large who thinks it might be time for her nation to share its tremendous gifts with a world that needs them.

When Black Panther went on advance sale in the United States, last month, ticket sales were, in the first 24 hours, higher than that of 2016's Captain America: Civil War, which had an opening weekend of $179.1m (£129m) in the U.S. alone.

The film was a breakout hit in 1998 for Marvel; at the time the company had been bankrupt and for many decades struggling to bring their comic-book creations to screen. The action in Black Panther includes lots of hand-to-hand combat, much of it taking place in a sacred pool-the editing of these scenes could be cleaner, they give the movie a nice jolt of organic energy even so. "I sat with that, and I had to process", Coogler says. "I'm just going to hold it.' It just doesn't quite work out". So there you have it, Boseman didn't have to undergo auditions and test screenings like, say, Tom Holland, he was just the ideal man for the job. Each character is instantly unforgettable, the costumes drawing on a wide array of real-life African fashion.

T'Challa, king and protector of the technologically advanced fictional African nation of Wakanda, has been characterised as the first black superhero, which is partly true.

"I was so proud to have my daughter and my son there last night, because in their faces, in their spirit, they were feeling themselves". It was really cool to see somebody that look like me.

Black Panther is released in United Kingdom cinemas on February 13, 2018.

BLACK PANTHER stars Chadwick Boseman, Michael B. Jordan, Lupita Nyong'o, Danai Gurira, Martin Freeman, Daniel Kaluuya, Letitia Wright, Winston Duke, Angela Bassett, Forest Whitaker, and Andy Serkis and is directed by Ryan Coogler. If we start talking about sequels - if we do four of them, two of them, three of them - I just want them all to be special like this one.
