Black Panther: The best-reviewed Marvel movie ever made

Rotten Tomatoes is actively banning reviewers who use hate speech

The lucrative Marvel Comics universe will expand exponentially in the next 12 months. The loose stitching that has framed an unprecedented 17-movie win streak is now the stuff of pop culture legend.

Rolling Stone's Peter Travers agreed, calling the movie "an epic that doesn't walk, talk or kick ass like any other Marvel movie - an exhilarating triumph on every level from writing, directing, acting, production design, costumes, music, special effects to you name it".

Black Panther star Chadwick Boseman revealed on Tuesday, January 31 that doubters had tried to convince him not to give the superhero an African accent - and how proud he was to prove them wrong.

Marvel's Black Panther opens in theaters on February 16, but you can win tickets to see a sneak preview days ahead of the rest of the public.

Black Panther will be the first Marvel Cinematic Universe film headlined by a black superhero and features a mostly black cast.

Helping chip away at the notion of superhero movies as white male terrain is acclaimed writer/director Ryan Coogler (Creed, Fruitvale Station), while the film boasts such an array of exciting acting talent it was evidently a struggle to get them all on the poster. In his struggles, he is flanked by his tech-wizard sister Shuri (Letitia Wright), right-hand warrior woman Okoye (Danai Gurira), proud mother Ramonda (Angela Bassett) and supportive ex-girlfriend Nakia (Lupita Nyong'o). It was really cool to see somebody that look like me. One that dares to do something different and something more meaningful. That is an incredible roster of top-notch talent.

Even more glowing is Rolling Stone's review of the film, which specifically points out the aesthetic beauty created by Ryan Coogler, as well as his ability to capture a very tough topic of racial injustice - and yet still work it into an exciting action movie. And though there's now no mention of the sequel's length, we imagine it'll be much, much longer than Black Panther when all is said and done. He knows what he wants to say with the film and knows what a big opportunity this is to say it, especially for a black filmmaker. I have never cared for a villain the way I care for Michael B. Jordan's Erik Killmonger. Isolated wholly from the world by design-the insanely technologically skilled nation has their whole territory shielded by a cloaking device-Wakanda has developed nearly perfectly into a country that simultaneously has found harmony with its rural roots and a progressive metropolitan center. The solution to the problem being: We don't have enough of this, so we're going to make more.

Pretending to be a primitive country turns out to be a brilliant cover for Wakanda, an incredibly advanced, nearly utopian society where the understanding, design and deployment of technology is light years ahead of the so-called "civilised" world. No two citizens seem to stand in the same place on this issue.

So get in the queue now, people.
