Since their release of The Avengers in 2012, Marvel has been able to rake in millions of dollars through continuously have a following for each movie released. However, Black Panther is a Marvel movie that is bringing in a new type of phenomenon. With the first introduction of Black Panther in Captain America: Civil War, fans (this one included) were excited to see more of the interesting character; especially after getting a foreshadowing of his importance in a mid- credit scene.
Fans were elated to finally get news that this character was going to be getting his own movie. With each poster and character released, the excitement grew for what would be considered the first unapologetically black super hero movie. Then on Monday, January 29 came the “red” carpet premiere that put every other movie premiere to shame. Actors for the movie and various black entertainers walked the red carpet (which was purple for this movie premiere).
