How Lupita Nyong'o Got In Shape for "Black Panther"

BBC Minute: on Black Panther

What do you think of these "fans" and their effort to try to bring down the Black Panther audience score on Rotten Tomatoes? Now, Spencer has stepped forward with an effort of her own to get kids to the Black Panther movie.

Marvel's Black Panther is definitely the superhero of the moment, with the new film expected to top $100M opening weekend. I put it on my social media, I was so excited.

The actor also hopes that people will watch this movie and see the hero in themselves, even if it is a white person. It follows T'Challa (Boseman) after the death of his father, the king of the fictional African nation of Wakanda, and his ascension to the throne.

In "Black Panther", Boseman stars alongside other big names such as Michael B. Jordan, Lupita Nyong'o, Daniel Kaluuya, Angela Bassett, Forest Whitaker and Sterling K. Brown.

"I never wanted this movie to end, and as soon as it did I wanted to go back", tweeted Mashable critic Angie Han.

Danai Gurira (The Walking Dead) spoke of her trepidation over having her head shaved to play Okoye, the head of Wakanda's Dora Milaje special forces. And now Kendrick Lamar - who is co-producing the Marvel film's soundtrack - has added fuel to the flame by dropping its tracklist.

"Black Panther" doesn't premiere until February 16, but the long-awaited Marvel comic film starring a black superhero, T'Challa, who becomes king of the African nation Wakanda following his father's death, has been getting rave reviews. It's not the worst Marvel movie.

The Marvel Studio film releases on February 16 in India and the US.
