Right now, all eyes are fixed firmly on Black Panther, and understandably so.
Ryan Coogler’s spinoff is proving to be a smashing success, delighting critics and fans alike and cruising past one box office record after another. Many are hailing it as one of Marvel Studios’ finest efforts, something we’d have to agree with, but according to the man in charge, it might actually be the best movie they’ve ever made.
That’s right. Kevin Feige was speaking to ABC News in a recent interview and revealed that he thinks Black Panther is the MCU’s crowning achievement – at least, so far. “The film finished and I looked over at Ryan, I told him, ‘I think that’s the best movie we’ve ever made,’” said Feige. And while it remains to be seen whether the spinoff will indeed go down as the studio’s best work, it’s certainly well on its way to claiming that title.
There really is no stopping T’Challa at the moment, as he continues to claw his way into the hearts of moviegoers everywhere and right to the top of the box office charts. With tons of positive reviews in the tank, not to mention an A+ CinemaScore and a tremendous amount of positive buzz, all signs point to the Wakandan epic having long legs, too, meaning it’ll be the talk of the town for a while.
For now, we can all sit back and enjoy the tremendous success that’s coming Black Panther‘s way.
