If there were even the tiniest bit of doubt that Black Panther would live up to the hype, last night’s premiere has squashed it. 

It’s not like the excitement around this movie is a surprise. The character T’Challa/Black Panther first appeared in Captain America: Civil War, but this is his first solo movie, and the anticipation resulted in Marvel’s biggest pre-sale numbers to date. Even Lupita Nyong’o—who stars in the movie as Nakia—had trouble getting tickets.

Black Panther is the 18th movie in the Marvel Cinematic Universe and stars Chadwick Boseman as T’Challa a.k.a. Black Panther, the ruler of Wakanda, Michael B. Jordan as the movie’s villain, Killmonger, and Lupita Nyong’o, Danai Gurira, Letitia Wright, Martin Freeman, and more.

Last night’s global premiere had critics absolutely buzzing on social media. They hailed Black Panther as their favorite Marvel movie, and many said it wasn’t even a contest.

Many affirmed that the most obvious aspect of the movie—that it is Marvel’s blackest project to date—does more than just provide much needed diversity to Marvel’s catalogue. The film’s vested interest in telling a black story also serves as a lesson in representation and an inspiration for those who rarely see themselves on the big screen, especially in superhero movies. But it’s not just doing diversity for diversity’s sake: critics also highlighted how well directed, produced, and edited the movie is and how dynamic the actors are. As a result, and with other black-driven stories like Get Out and Girls Trip before it also becoming box office darlings, Black Panther is guaranteed to make a boatload of money.

Last night’s premiere saw the movie's stars and guests descend upon Wakanda’s royalty-ready purple carpet in their absolute finest. The excitement was palpable, but it was more than the usual excitement for another blockbuster Marvel movie. Guests really took the Wakanda theme seriously and showed up to represent the culture. Angela Basset, who stars as Ramonda, T'Challa's mother, said the most special thing about the movie was "just seeing all these beautiful, talented black people in one place. This black nation coming together, technologically advanced, uncolonized, with so many swag and brilliance." Daniel Kaluuya, who plays W'Kabi in the movie, said, "This is how it's supposed to be. We just have to tell honest stories that reflect the world from all perspectives, not just one."

And, finally, perhaps the most important reaction: Donald Glover liked the movie so much that he actually tweeted about it. It is literally the only tweet on his page (since joining in 2009, Glover has tweeted about 19 times total, but tends to delete his tweets.) The movie was that good. Can February 16 get here already?
