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".
The Marvel movie's European premiere takes place in London on Thursday (8 January) and ahead of the big night, Black Panther'sRotten Tomatoes rating sits at an impressive 99%.
After the events of Captain America: Civil War, King T'Challa returns home to the reclusive, technologically advanced African nation of Wakanda to serve as his country's new leader.
"Black Panther's" stars say they expect the film will change how Africa will be depicted in future films.
"Conducted first draw along on my Twitch stream, and the chat chose Black Panther as the subject", Lee wrote in the caption accompanying the image.
Business Insider said that "Black Panther" arrived at a flawless time. "In the process, the studio has ended up with one of the most enthralling entries in its entire universe". "I wanna sit with her a little bit more". "The extravagant display of talent in smaller roles also adds to the sense of class, featuring Sterling K. Brown ("This Is Us"), "Get Out's" Daniel Kaluuya, Forest Whitaker and Angela Bassett".
Backstory: T'Challa's nemesis, who, when exiled from Wakanda, became an American black-ops soldier whose mission is to overthrow the Wakandan king. Inspired by the hero's stunning Vibranium suit, the two offerings come clad in black with rugged leather and knit materials combined with silver accents, 3M laces and a Marvel lace keeper to finish off these commemorative looks.
