Is Ryan Coogler 30 years old yet? He had such an amazing launch with “Fruitvale Station” and then “Creed.” Now Coogler’s Marvel movie, “Black Panther,” premiered in Hollywood tonight to ecstatic reviews and raves. It should set records for February openings, comic book movies, Marvel films, etc.
“Black Panther” opens February 15th. Right now Disney is embargoing reviews, allowing only Twitter reactions. New York press doesn’t see the movie until February 6th. But it’s pretty clear that Coogler and his stars Chadwick Boseman and Michael B. Jordan are about to go through the roof. Can’t think of three guys who deserve it more!
We’ll check Twitter in the AM for a round up of comments!
