'Black Panther' takes blockbusters to Africa, and the future

Black Panther is just days away from its official release and the excitement among fans is at the brim.

Time debuted the cover this morning with a brief video, which begins with Black Panther slashing through a black background, before the cover alternates between Boseman in the hero's Vibranium suit, and the actor himself.

Jordan will grace the screens once again as he stars in his blockbuster hit, Black Panther, next Friday. Actress Letitia Wright who is playing the role of T'Challa's genius younger sister, Shuri, in the film, recently revealed in an interview that director Ryan Coogler had earlier made attempts to set up the introduction of a female Black Panther version in the sequels. However, T'Challa soon finds that he is challenged for the throne from factions within his own country. Industry experts are projecting that the Ryan Coogler helmed project could open at around $150 million or higher.

The film is the 18th film to be spawned from the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU), according to CNNMoney, and the highly anticipated movie has already broken Fandango's pre-sale ticket record for MCU films within its first 24 hours.

Black Panther now has a ComicBook.com User Anticipation Rating of 4.17 out of 5, making it the second most anticipated upcoming comic book movie among ComicBook.com Users.

But what else can we expect from good old Chad, who plays the titular character also known as King T'Challa of Wakanda? Finally, a Black Panther icon logo stamped insole, and debossed tribal details come together to make this collection fit for any Wakandan hero. Killmonger has issues about how Wakanda has been run and how it should be ruled.
