‘Black Panther’ Officially Releases Nationwide Tonight And Fans Can’t Wait

CHARLOTTE, NC — Marvel’s ‘Black Panther’ releases nationwide tonight, and fans say the much anticipated movie is bringing everyone together.

The last installment in the Marvel Cinematic Universe is expected to break box office records this weekend, and Fandango says the movie has already pre-sold more tickets than any other superhero movie to date.

‘Black Panther’ is the first global superhero movie to feature a mostly black cast and black director. The film is also accompanied by dolls, toys, and action figures with dark skin, which is something many African American fans say they never had growing up and is exciting to see now.

The City of Charlotte is even getting in on the hype by releasing a temporary logo inspired by the legendary hero from Wakanda.
