Black Panther featurette focusses on the Dora Milaje

Black Panther featurette focusses on the Dora Milaje

The heroic adventure opens on February 16, which is part of the four-day President's Day holiday weekend and adjacent to Valentine's Day which falls on a Wednesday this year, per Deadline.

Ryan Coogler's Black Panther is poised to strike theaters on February 16, and there's a razor-sharp interest in Marvel's first black superhero, and his debut solo shot on the silver screen.

Black Panther has a lot going for it at the moment. Fandango says the first 24 hours of advanced ticket sales beat the sales for "Captain America: Civil War", thus setting a new bar for Marvel.

The movie opened for advance ticket sales at the start of the week, and has already overtaken previous top-seller Captain America: Civil War (the movie which, of course, introduced Chadwick Boseman as T'Challa, the Black Panther, to the MCU in the first place).

Aside from Boseman, other members of the "Black Panther" cast are Michael B. Jordan, Angela Bassett, Andy Serkis and Forest Whitaker.

"Black Panther" broke Marvel presale records when it aired during the College Football Playoff National Championship game, according to Fandango managing editor, Erik Davis. Why wouldn't it? It's the latest from Marvel Studios, a comic-book movie house that even figured out how to make Thor sequels entertaining.

"Captain America: Civil War" opened in May of 2016, and is the 15th-highest worldwide grosser, with $1.15 billion. The film is set for release on February 12th in the United Kingdom and on February 16th in the States.
