This weekend sees the release of the 19th entry in the Marvel Cinematic Universe in Black Panther. The film, which boasts and incredible cast, outstanding crew, and strong assortment of characters, has so far experienced almost universal critical and audience acclaim that will surely add-up when the domestic and international box office numbers arrive after the weekend. There has also been no shortage of celebrity endorsement for what many are labelling ‘the most important Marvel film to date’, as everyone from athletes in the NBA, to some of the biggest music artists in the world, and even members from the superhero universe in Captain Marvel’s lead, Brie Larson, have contributed to the hype.
Larson, who is expected to make her Marvel Cinematic Universe debut either in Avengers: Infinity War (speculation) OR in next year’s Captain Marvel, took to twitter yesterday to spread the word on the ongoing praise that Black Panther is consistently getting. The tweet can be seen below:

The response below the Tweet is something to even take more inspiration from; Larson headlining a group of charitable fans willing to help each other to see the movie this weekend. While Brie Larson is not the first, and certainly not the last to praise the film, it is always comforting to see the stars from other franchise titles sharing their appreciation for each other’s accomplishments. It may be a little early to determine the overall reactions from the general audience, but early buzz from critics and those who have already viewed Thursday/Friday night screenings has fans of the King of Wakanda excited about the impact Black Panther may have in the long-run.
Black Panther is in theatres everwhere now, the Ryan Coogler directed film stars Chadwick Boseman, Michael B. Jordan, Lupita N’yongo, Martin Freeman, Andy Serkis, and Forest Whitaker. Captain Marvel will be directed by Anna Boden and Ryan Fleck and stars Brie Larson, Jude Law, Samuel L. Jackson, and Ben Mendelson, and will be released on March 8th, 2019.
