Since the release of Captain America: Civil War, we've been experiencing Black Panther fever. The character, a Wakandan King who is a multi-billionaire (as a result of the hordes of valuable vibranium on his homeland) and also fights crime as the super badass Black Panther, stole the show in Civil War, and has a Ryan Coogler-directed (and co-written) film due out in February of 2018. Fans were already excited that Coogler would be bringing the creativity that he brought to both Fruitvale Station and Creed to this Marvel project, but two pieces of casting information hit this week that has people going nuts: both Lupita Nyong'o and Michael B. Jordan are reportedly set to star in the film alongside Boseman.
As per usual, Marvel's mum on any details regarding the project, but that didn't stop Twitter from having a field day using the hashtag #BlackPantherSOLIT, which not only highlights the excitement that people have for this project—one that's said to feature a cast that's 90 percent African or African-American—but also serves as a laundry list of things people need to be prepared for when Black Panther finally opens.
Basically, it looks like you should be rocking your Easter Sunday best. Here's a look at the best of #BlackPantherSOLIT:
We reached out to Ava DuVernay to see if Coogler actually saw this amazing hashtag; hopefully he's experienced the genuine excitement that his film has caused.
