Intelligence Veteran Reviews – Marvel Studios’ Black Panther (2018)

Is there a main character in Black Panther who engages in terrorism?

The 2018 Marvel film Black Panther is a truly spectacular movie that features black actors and culture. And yet one of the main characters resorts to terrorism to right historical wrongs.

Why would the producers do this? Borealis President Phil Gurski reviews Black Panther from a practitioner’s perspective.

About the movie

After the events of Captain America: Civil War, Prince T’Challa returns home to the reclusive, technologically advanced African nation of Wakanda to serve as his country’s new king. However, T’Challa soon finds that he is challenged for the throne from factions within his own country.

When two foes conspire to destroy Wakanda, the hero known as Black Panther must team up with C.I.A. agent Everett K. Ross and members of the Dora Milaje, Wakandan special forces, to prevent Wakanda from being dragged into a world war.
