Black Panther Was Disappointing to Say the Least

Today we get a look as "Black Panther" Director Ryan Coogler Pens A Letter To The Fans.

Black Panther is a worldwide phenomenon and Ryan Coogler is eternally grateful!

Winston Duke, who plays M'Baku in the Marvel masterpiece, also shared his appreciation for Coogler on social media. Panther generated $462.3M through Tuesday, Deadline reports. I think we all-Black heterosexuals and LGBT- walked out of the theater feeling inspired and empowered by the film's storyline and portrayal of our people. Comic book Nakia is violently obsessed with Black Panther to the point where she tried to murder his one-time girlfriend.

Black Panther is in theaters now.


The film - which recently achieved a rare 100% rating on Rotten Tomatoes - stars Chadwick Boseman as King T'Challa, the beleagured leader of fictional kingdom Wakanda, alongside Luptia Nyong'o and Michael B Jordan.

Black Panther has dominated the box office since its recent release, breaking records and bringing in $242 million in its opening weekend.

Black Panther has been a critical and commercial success, with the film now holding a stellar 97% on Rotten Tomatoes and a 77% audience score.

The movie follows T'Challa following the events of Civil War as he returns to the isolated but unconquerable, technologically advanced African nation that he calls home.


This is way more than just a movie; this has become an influential movement. The film's music is also brilliant - it's an interesting mix between a score from Ludwig Göransson and original songs by Kendrick Lamar, which is dramatic when it needs to be, but also feels fresh and epic in the film's cooler moments.

Black Panther had great potential, but the weak script failed to take advantage of the talented cast.

In the letter, Coogler talks about how he felt "humbled" and "moved to tears" that people of "all backgrounds" came out to see and support the film. The revolution behind taking every marginalized identity in typical films and making them the center of Black Panther is what allows this film to annihilate its competition. Black Panther portrays the normalcy of men having and processing emotions.
