It also has the best Rotten Tomatoes score (Certified Fresh at 97 percent) of any Marvel Cinematic Universe film or superhero movie in history, according to Marvel.

It was [almost the ending]. And it came back to that symmetry, and it came back to the most moving version of it. Although many hot takes will surely combust to explain away Black Panther's remarkable success, none will be able to diminish its crowning achievement: death to the conventional wisdom that black filmmakers and black leads don't add up to movies for absolutely everybody. What's special about the ending is that before we cut to the end titles, there is a attractive exchange of words between a young African American kid and T'Challa. So, I guess, the question is: "when can we have Black Panther 2?" In this extended video, Coogler explains almost everything that went into the casino scene from the film's second act, from the colors worn by the lead performers to some unexpectedly complicated fight choreography.

Directed by Ryan Coogler, Black Panther stars Chadwick Boseman, Michael B. Jordan, Lupita Nyong'o, Danai Gurira, Martin Freeman, Daniel Kaluuya, Angela Bassett, Letitia Wright, Winston Duke, Florence Kasumba, Sterling K. Brown, Andy Serkis and John Kan.

- We talk about a few parallels we see between T'Challah and Killmonger and a few famous historical (and fictional!) figures.

The King of Wakanda is still conquering the box office.

He went on to say "It still humbles me to think that people care enough to spend their money and time watching our film - But to see people of all backgrounds wearing clothing that celebrates their heritage, taking pictures next to our posters with their friends and family, and sometimes dancing in the lobbies of theaters - often moved me and my wife to tears".

It would've been wonderful to see that scene up on the big screen. The mid-range budget film has been dying a quiet death over the past decade, and with it have disappeared numerous romantic comedies and character-driven movies that let black people simply exist onscreen.

- We take a moment to discuss the wonderful women of Black Panther and sing their praises.
