That’s right—it doesn’t have 20 superheroes or threaten the end of the world, but it’s a cerebral and complex film that offers a breath of fresh air for the MCU.

Director Ryan Coogler, who made Fruitvale Station and Creed, has created the most unique movie within the Marvel canon. He, along with the cast and crew ofBlack Panther, truly elevated the superhero genre.

Black Panther follows T’Challa, played Chadwick Boseman, who after the death of his father (which takes place in Captain America: Civil War) must take his place as the new king of Wakanda. But, when a family secret emerges, the throne and Wakanda are put in jeopardy.
