"Black Panther" hopes for cultural shift

Others say it is a correction after years of neglecting the minority talent in Hollywood.

Basically, the black cast of superhero movie “Black Panther” hopes that its combination of African pride, beauty and adventure will also mark a cultural shift in the film industry and beyond.

Disney's film, opening all over the world this week, tells the story of T'Challa / Black Panther (Chadwick Boseman), the new king of the futuristic, wealthy African nation Wakanda, who is challenged by the faction in his own country.

"I hope it will change the general idea of ​​what being an African is. Too often times we see Africa as a place that is wanting, and here it’s a place that you want to go, " said Lupita Nyong‘o, who plays the Wakandan warrior spy, Nakia.

The film directed by Ryan Coogler, as well as Michael B. Jordan, Angela Bassett, Foster Whittaker and Daniel Kaluuya, arrives in star reviews after years of criticism about the inadequate representation of films, actors and filmmakers of color in Hollywood.

Analysts expect that in the first weekend box office at the North American will explode about $150 million, and the filmmakers hope that it will encourage studios to invest in more massive, racially diverse films.

“Black Panther” also offers a new type of villain through Jordan’s Killmonger, a sensitive former black military agent who wants to distribute the wealth of Wakanda to arm the black population of the world and help them to take power.

Wakanda is depicted as a green land with stunning waterfalls, where a spaceship, designed as tribal masks, hovers over a modern metropolis.
