The early reviews for the film have been great. The trailers look awesome. The last few Marvel films have been awesome and seem to be getting better every time, so no reason this shouldn’t be a great film.

I just hope that the success of the film doesn't result in Chadwick Boseman only doing this kind of film now. He's such a fine serious actor.

Yup. The problem is: All that was also true of THE LAST JEDI, which I didn't like it all. So I'm still feeling kinda Disney-burned.

I'm sure I'll see BLACK PANTHER. Not sure I'll see it in the theater though. I may wait for the DVD.

Especially in the Asian market, which takes up a huge chunk of the international movie gross.

Regardless, I hope it does well enough to garner a sequel and move from a C-list character to an A-list character. Chadwick is a pretty good actor and I pray he plays the character well along with the supporting cast.
Is the film not being shown in on the continent of Africa? Would the Disney Company leave that money on the table?

And I'm glad that you get that, the happy guy.

Really? With all of the Black Panther's white friends such as Captain America and the other white Avengers? But sorry, but that's just an unfounded fear, which in my opinion, isn't even worth mentioning.

I agree. Both actors have an appeal to them. Especially, Chadwick Boseman.

Also, I recently found an article about Wesley Snipes wanting to do a Black Panther movie back in the 90s:

Wesley Snipes Reveals Plans For His Scrapped Black Panther Movie

and even though Snipes was cool back in the day, I personally think that part of the appeal of 2018's The Black Panther is its lead star, Chadwick Boseman.

Snipes got a reputation for being a pain to work with. Too much ego. It's why you don't see much of him anymore. No one wants to work with him.

I don’t know if it will break $1 billion internationally, but I would love to see it do very well.

I already have my tickets bought for opening weekend and I’m sooooo ready! I’ve been anticipating this movie since the rumors actually solidified into confirmed casting and production. I’ve only been all the more pleased with each new promo and trailer releases. The production and costuming alone is stunning. I know the actors will be great. I’m familiar with the comics and can’t wait to watch the story unfold on the big screen!
