Jordan said he and director Ryan Coogler set out to craft a look that could potentially be adapted by Panther fans. Excerpts from the note read - "I am struggling to find the words to express my gratitude at this moment, but I will try..." Which means that other than maybe a Star Wars movie or two, this is basically the biggest opening for any movie ever.

And like "Roots", which came into the public consciousness toward the end of Jim Crow and kicked off a needed national dialogue on race, "Black Panther" debuts at a time when we are grappling with identity politics evidenced by instructive racial flashpoints. Hopefully we'll be able to see it once Black Panther arrives on DVD and Blu-ray.

Last week, Variety reported that the film had become the most tweeted-about movie of the year so far, having amassed more than five million tweets on the social platform.

"Black Panther" does an incredible job of subtly imposing a message on the viewers without being preachy, and requires us to look inside ourselves, and the characters to find out what it is.

And that's just it. Black Panther feels more like a pent-up cultural movement than your average installment in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

ROBERTSON: Obviously Will Smith films and Eddie Murphy movies have been cracking the box office overseas for years.

Actress Brie Larson, star of forthcoming Marvel release Captain Marvel, is among many to champion the scheme.

The whole movie focuses on proving that neither Africa nor blackness is a monolith by including symbolism like this throughout the film. On Monday, a Marvel fan at the airport updated a sign at one of the gates to show that flight ATL1234 to Wakanda would be leaving at 7:30 p.m., then shared a photo of the sign on the airport's official Twitter account, writing, "The bags are packed #WakandaForever".

Prepare to see Wakanda like never before as writer Ta-Nehisi Coates and artist Daniel Acuña present a bold new direction for both the nation and T'Challa in BLACK PANTHER #1!

More than anything that actually happens in the story, I just liked spending time in Wakanda. "Ryan Coogler and us lot, we've been given support and we need the support back". Black Panther had helped the Fantastic Four on several other occasions fighting villains like Doctor Doom and Psycho-Man.

The film has many interesting ideas.

Black Panther is the record-breaking Marvel movie that has drawn in masses to the cinemas, showcasing the gorgeous world of Wakanda and perfectly combining classic comic book humour with respectful nods to African culture.
