Last weekend, I had the opportunity to check out the historical Marvel movie Black Panther. It was wayyyy better than the hype behind it I must say! Normally, if a lot of people are hyping something up online or through television media, I will shy away from it. But for this particular film, I decided to check it out for myself…..and it was well worth it! Black Panther featured an all back cast for starters so this was more than just a new movie premiere. This particular movie is historical for Black History month. Lets take a look at the cast below for a brief description on the film. WARNING: If you haven’t watched it yet don’t read this post yet!! I highly recommend you see the film first and then come back and read.
