There's a lot of excitement building for Marvel's Black Panther, and Get Out actor Daniel Kaluuya, who is part of the impressive cast, is here to pump up the hype even more! While talking about the film in an interview with GQ, the actor excitedly compared the movie to HBO's Game of Thrones. He said:
“This is an African blockbuster, bruv. This is like Game of Thrones. This is crazy. And Ryan Coogler is just, man dem. He’s like us! He’s a normal dude, in a Golden State hat and a Tupac T-shirt directing the whole set. It’s the most beautiful thing to see.”
He doesn't go into any details about how Black Panther is like Game of Thrones, but I imagine it's in terms of tone, epic feel, plot elements, and maybe even some of the fantasy elements. It's safe to say that Black Panther isn't going to include insanely bloody violence and lots of nudity.
We've already seen some beautiful concept art from the film showing off its impressive and lush setting. I can't wait to see that art brought to life in the film.
Black Panther director Ryan Coogler is the guy who previously brought us Creed and Fruitvale Station, both of which were great and powerful movies. I imagine he'll bring that same power to the Black Panther story he set out to tell, only this time it will be in much more epic scale than anything he's made before.
Black Panther follows T’Challa who, after the events of “Captain America: Civil War,” returns home to the isolated, technologically advanced African nation of Wakanda to take his place as King. However, when an old enemy reappears on the radar, T’Challa’s mettle as King and Black Panther is tested when he is drawn into a conflict that puts the entire fate of Wakanda and the world at risk.
The movie stars Chadwick Boseman, Michael B. Jordan, Lupita Nyong’o, Danai Gurira, Martin Freeman, Daniel Kaluuya, Angela Bassett, Forest Whitaker, and Andy Serkis. Black Panther comes out on February 16th, 2018.
