I felt that, definitely. I loved his armored look in the middle of the movie, with the horned mask. I think his fight scenes in the panther suit were great, but Marvel has really run the evil mirror image thing to the ground. 

I agree with Will, this had the best, most interesting, supporting cast of any comic book film. Can't wait to see where they go from here.

To call it Black Panther fighting evil Black Panther is reductive at best. That’s like saying Thor fighting Loki or Hela is Thor fighting evil Thor.

The entire Killmonger storyline is an honest reckoning of a utopia like Wakanda existing in the context of African/African American history, isolationism and the experience of kids of diaspora feel when they return to their “home” culture. (Tbh, I’m incredibly surprised Marvel let Coogler even make this movie)

Just got back from seeing this a second time. It holds up. The only things I’m not liking is a) us never getting a name/background for the woman who’s with Killmonger before he murders her, and b) the message of the movie wrt Killmonger boiling down to “children of the diaspora will never belong in their home culture (I would liked to have seen a rehabilitation attempt for him, especially given the acknowledging mistakes thing).

But man, that these are my only complaints for a movie are incredibly minor. The action is amazing, the entire cast (except maybe Forrest Whittaker) is a goddamn thirst trap, the design is amazing on every front, the soundtrack is good, and the plot holds up. 

On track to see this a third time, and I’m cool with that. Up there with The Winter Soldier for me.

 

Re: Eric's girlfriend. Apparently she was gonna be Tilda Johnson but then they cast someone as the same character for the next season of Luke Cage.

Just saw it so I'm still processing that beautiful piece of art, but I do have one question: was Stan Lee's cameo a meta slam against him? He flat out takes credit for another man's work, reaping a financial reward in the process, and never gives due credit. I audibly gasped so loud Shana turned to look at me.
