Even before its commercial release, Black Panther is already making a big buzz within the cyberspace.
The first wave of reactions for Marvels latest superhero movie came flooding right in Twitterverse after its special U.S. premiere last January 29, 2018—and we must say, the film is proving to be a marvelous cinematic treat judging by the people’s initial reactions on social media. They were all praises for director Ryan Coogler, the showcase of powerful female leads, and the standout performances from Chadwick Boseman as T’Challa/Black Panther and Michael B. Jordan as villain Erik Killmonger.
Feeling hyped now? Check out these glowing tweets from the lucky few who got to see what they call “Marvel’s best movie yet” and sate your curiosity until Black Panther finally hit the local cinemas.
BLACK PANTHER, my goodness.

Black Panther is a new high for Marvel on so many levels: the richest exploration of identity and strength and privilege, the deepest bench of complex women, and I think the MCU’s most tragic villain. The atmosphere in the screening room was so charged.

Black Panther was STUNNING. The movie itself tackles a lot of different issues, including a complex villain and the moral struggles that come with being king.
And it truly showed the strength of black women THE ENTIRE TIME.#BlackPanther

BLACK PANTHER is incredible, kinetic, purposeful. A superhero movie about why representation & identity matters, and how tragic it is when those things are denied to people. The 1st MCU movie about something real; Michael B. Jordan’s Killmonger had me weeping and he’s the VILLAIN

I now understand that I need a throwing wig. The Dora Milaje taught me that.

Black Panther is the best MCU movie ever. I was blown away from start to finish and I’m not even being biased. This was by far the best marvel movie to date. Thank you, Ryan Coogler! #BlackPanther pic.twitter.com/8Qh0hlOYAb

Black Panther. So very good. I cheered and laughed and pumped my fist. I’ve never seen a super hero movie like it. Everybody involved with it deserves a medal and a high five.
