I could've slept through his first two solo movies, and he was only a bit player in my mind when I watched the first two Avengers films, but with the arc they gave him from Ragnarok into IW they somehow managed to breathe such new life into him that he's suddenly jumped to the top of my list. T'Challa, like many heroes and half of the universe, turned to dust at the end of the movie. First, there's T'Challa's technologically brilliant sister, Princess Shuri (Letitia Wright), who has donned the Black Panther persona during writer Reginald Hudlin's comic book run on the 2009 Marvel series. There has been speculation over the last several weeks that somebody else could possibly take on the role, possibly even Shuri, if she lived through the snap of Thanos.

My favorite extra, however, is a twenty minute roundtable discussion between Coogler and a group of Black Panther writers, producers, designers, and others in which they discuss not only the film, but the characters cultural importance from his introduction in the '60s through to today.

Speaking with Screen Rant, he said: "I think it's an opportunity for us to bid a fond farewell to characters that we've come to know for a while". I also think there's an appetite for it now, or there's a far greater range of possibilities of where he can go now, what he can do, just because we've kind of broke the mould a bit. However, revisiting Wakanda and the engaging characters therein and their vision of a future where peace is the main goal, even while maintaining a strong defense for all reinvigorated me and reminded me that there can still be good stories to tell in this overwhelming genre.

It won't be a tall ask for the film to come close to the Dollars 2 billion mark, which has been achieved by only three films so far - Avatar, Titanic and Star Wars: The Force Awakens.

Nate Moore only revealed a very few details about Marvel's plans. Post-Avengers 4, maybe the MCU will introduce newer characters and stories, making subsequent movies more accessible, but in the meantime...Avengers: Infinity War is in theatres now. "So I definitely feel a renewed sense of excitement and enthusiasm, and more so than ever, I think".
