African superheroes headlining a film production of “Marvel Cinematic Universe” is a first. And it does not go unnoticed. The story is set in Wakanda, an imaginary country of rich Africa (for once) that has never been colonized. A technologically advanced nation (wahouuu!). And who welcomes refugees from the poorest nations. It changes us some stereotypes about Africans …

Black Panther is the first film in the Marvel Cinematic Universe franchise with a cast of mostly black actors. African superheroes, then, are the headliners. The African-American director Ryan Coogler mixes in this film hailed by a lot of critics and whose African moviegoers have fallen in love, fantasy and political reflection. For the synopsis: T’Challa returns home to Wakanda to take his place on the throne. But when an old enemy re-emerges, T’Challa’s courage is put to the test, both as a ruler and as a Black Panther. He finds himself drawn into a conflict that threatens not only the fate of Wakanda, but that of the entire world …

Black Panther is directed by Ryan Coogler, with Chadwick Boseman (T’Challa / Black Panther), Lupita Nyong’o (Nakia), Danai Gurira (Okoye), Letitia Wright (Shuri), Angela Bassett (Ramonde), Forest Whitaker (Zuri ), Michael B. Jordan (Erik Killmonger), Andy Serkis (Ulysses Klaue) and Martin Freeman (Everett Ross).

The film is currently playing in the halls of Majestic Cinema in Abidjan.
