'Black Panther' Preview: Meet Michael B. Jordan's character Killmonger

ENTERTAINMENT     Review 'Black Panther' is one spectacular superhero     
       Marvel flick hits theaters nationwide Feb. 16

But Jordan, normally cast as a good guy underdog for prior roles, has admitted that he did have to stretch-and dig deep-when it came to bringing the dark and conflicted character of Killmonger credibly to life for the film.

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 spirits tend to hang around, providing wisdom and advice to the current Panther.

Black Panther tells the story of T'challa, a newly crowned king of the fictional, technologically advanced African nation called Wakanda. He also uses Necropolis as a secret base of sorts, which eventually becomes a prison to the one and only Thanos.

Let us know how excited you are for Black Panther by giving the movie your own ComicBook.com User Anticipation Rating below.

A Change.org petition asks Marvel to invest 25 percent of the film's profit into the Black community.

Star Wars actor John Boyega and Stormzy arrived together, while Black Eyed Peas stars Taboo, Will.I.Am and Apl. De.

With massive word-of-mouth potential - coupled with critical love and a multimedia onslaught catering to key demographics - the sky's the limit for the film's actual pull, although experts are now capping expectations at around $150 million for the film's Presidents Day weekend debut.

With a black director, black protagonist, and almost all-black supporting cast, a film like Black Panther is needed more than ever.

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. "Black Panther has smashed records for advance ticket sales thanks to the hard work of local crew and vendors, and because the film reflects the breadth and diversity of our global communities".
