Sure a few thousand lucky fans got to see “Black Panther” last night and during the exclusive industry previews but for the rest of the world the film opens TODAY in theaters everywhere and I couldn’t be more happy about it. Those watching the continuing and building adventures in the Marvel Cinematic Universe first saw the Black Panther in “Captain America: Civil War” and since those scenes they have been clamoring for his solo feature. Let’s remind of the casting and light premise after the Official Theatrical Poster below.
Premise: After the events of Captain America: Civil War, King T’Challa returns home to Wakanda but soon finds his sovereignty challenged by factions within his own country. When two enemies conspire to bring down the kingdom, T’Challa must team up, as the Black Panther, with C.I.A. agent Everett K. Ross and members of the Dora Milaje—Wakanda’s special forces—to prevent a world war. (thanks Wiki).

PiercingMetal Thoughts: I’m excited for sure about this one and while I’ve often gone on the opening day or in the days following the first weekend deluge, I will be exploring the American International Toy Fair along with another event and that’s going to find me looking at the week after next. Sigh. It happens because like the saying says, when it rains it pours. Will you be seeing this in the opening weekend or shortly after? How excited are you for this chapter and where it’s taking the MCU? You can let me know your thoughts down in the comments. If you see it just please type loved it or hated it with NO SPOILERS. Doing otherwise will find you banned from commenting here ever again and that will work against you when it comes to any of our giveaways. If my wanderings about the Toy Fair strike your fancy, you might want to follow our Social Networks which are all listed at the bottom of the website. I’d love to have you along for the ride as I tweet and Instagram as I explore. See you next time.
