Stormzy, John Boyega and Daniel Sturridge join stars at Black Panther premiere

"My character comes from a place called Wakanda".

"... It's a different muscle for me". But the depth of Killmonger's character and the strength of his convictions make labeling him as an outright villain somewhat complicated.

It seems like everyone is excited for Ryan Coogler's Black Panther - even Jim Lee, the veteran comic artist and co-publisher of Marvel's rival DC Comics.

The Creed actor will not only make history by being part of an all-black cast of superheroes, but will go in to continue to inspire us to be great.

Boseman lends a winning mix of dignity and swagger to T'Challa, who returns to his homeland of Wakanda for the first time since the death of his father T'Chaka (John Kani) to take the throne.

No MCU movie or DCEU film has ever achieved a rating that high from Tomatometer-certified critics, with Wonder Woman's 92% and Captain America: Civil War's 91% being the scores to beat, but Black Panther is in good stead to set a new record. Box office analysts are projecting a $150 million opening over President's Day weekend.

The premiere comes after star of the film Andy Serkis said that having a film with a predominantly black cast and a black director is long "overdue".

The movie's megawatt casting, with stars like Chadwick Boseman, Lupita Nyong'o, Angela Bassett and Michael B. Jordan, and jaw-dropping special effects, are sure to deliver an unforgettable experience for superhero fans.

Backstory: T'Challa's nemesis, who, when exiled from Wakanda, became an American black-ops soldier whose mission is to overthrow the Wakandan king.
