Marvel's Black Panther May Hit $200 Million In Its Opening Weekend

Martin nearly landed a role in Star Wars

That makes it the highest-rated superhero film ever on the platform.

This Black History Month, "Black Panther" is giving communities more than just a few hours with a comic book movie. It also allows for the film to do away with the fish-out-of-water shit that plagues every new hero in the franchise.

"Black Panther" continues rolling out around the world this weekend and will be in close to 70% of the worldwide marketplace by Sunday. A sort of mishmash of traditional African cultures given an Afrofuturist bent, it's so far removed from the worlds we associate with superhero movies that it nearly singlehandedly makes everything that's rote and repetitive about the story Black Panther tells feel new again.

"You got to be careful of being racist against yourself".

Ruling Party Votes To Recall South African President Jacob Zuma
The ruling party wants Deputy President Cyril Ramaphosa to take over from Zuma, who has not responded to an ANC order to quit. The Guptas are accused of exploiting their ties to Zuma to influence Cabinet appointments and land state contracts.

Michael B Jordan was a mix of excitement and nerves as he took his seat alongside friends, family and cast-mates at the Los Angeles premiere of Marvel's new The Avengers' spin-off film, Black Panther. "If you have any good ideas, put it in the movie you're making".

"I think there's going to be a 5-year-old kid who walks into the theater and says, 'Wow, I can be T'Challa, I can be Shuri, I can be Okoye, I can be all these different wonderful characters that you see in this film, '" said Jamil Smith, who profiled director Ryan Coogler for a Time magazine cover story.

One of the most highly-anticipated Marvel films is hitting the big screen across the country.

Jordan has previously worked with Coogler on his other two cinematic outings - Fruitvale Station and Creed, both of which were brilliant - but he brings a twisted intensity to the role in Black Panther, playing a villain with enough shading and layers to make him very effective and properly memorable.
