The Black Panther himself isn’t the only reason I’m eagerly awaiting the the live action film when it hits theaters in 2018.
Although T’Challa in action is more than reason enough.
The opportunity to see the mythical land of Wakanda, and the fiercely “Adored Ones,” the Dora Milaje, on the big screen is also well worth the price of admission alone.
But as the Captain America, Iron Man and Thor films have illustrated, the supporting players, (Falcon, Bucky Barnes, War Machine, and Lady Sif) will also get an opportunity to take center stage.
This is why I’m hoping T’Challa’s younger sister and fellow Black Panther, Shuri has a featured role in the film.
