The 41-year-old actor plays Black Panther in the Marvel movie series but isn't anxious that his role will see him pigeon-holed as an actor as he already has had a string of career-defining parts.

Speaking with Screen Rant, he said: "Without getting into specifics, what I'll say is something that I kind of, you know, what I struggled with at first is the difference between T'Challa in the comic books versus T'Challa in the MCU". Credible, fun and rewarding, Black Panther chapter 18 in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, is a must-see film.

This image released by Disney shows a scene from Marvel Studios' "Black Panther".

Arguably, the black superhero genre began and ended with the turn-of-the-millennium Blade franchise, an ultra-stylised genre hybrid bashing together science fiction and horror that starred Wesley Snipes as a half vampire "daywalker" with an aesthetic look that owed so much to The Matrix. Truly, truly stunning. Chadwick Boseman's Black Panther oozes a cool and charisma that any James Bond would be jealous of, all while teasing a vulnerability and empathy that makes him more appealing.

When middle schoolers at Ron Clark Academy in Atlanta found out they were going to see the "Black Panther" on Friday, they erupted into dancing to an instrumental from the "Black Panther" soundtrack in a now-viral video on Twitter. Daniel Kaluuya (Get Out, Sicario) is to the right of the costumed Wakandan superhero, and he plays W'Kabi, the head of the Border Tribe's security and T'Challa's best friend. The film might, arguably, be the most universally accepted movie among the Black community that, exhausted of white savior flicks, slave narratives, and stereotypical depictions, feels we're finally getting the representation we've been craving on the big screen. It features a short clip of the Black Panther in action! It's just going insane. He said, "So, I would work out two to three times a day". Those ideas are the movie's supple backbone, not just stuff that's been added to make the whole venture seem important.

Call of Duty: Black Ops IV Coming This Year, New Sources Confirm
Treyarch released Black Ops III in 2015, followed by Infinity Ward's Infinite Warfare in 2016 and Sledgehammer's WWII a year ago . This year's Call of Duty installment will be handled by Treyarch and not so surprisingly, this has led to rumors of Black Ops 4 .

They're indomitable, and so gorgeously, vividly drawn that Boseman sometimes feels like a supporting player in his own story.

After this film, I never want to hear about Professor X is MLK and Magneto is Malcolm X comparison ever again.

"Honestly, this entire experience was quite humbling". With a stellar, deep-benched cast including Lupita Nyong'o, Michael B. Jordan, Angela Bassett, Forest Whitaker, Letitia Wright, Danai Gurira with direction and script by Ryan Coogler of "Fruitvale Station" and "Creed" fame, everything was set up for success. I shamefully started crying during the Dora Milaje fight scenes because it felt so good to see black women, of all shapes, be warriors, and be loved.

"Black Panther" opens February 16 in the U.S. It's rated PG-13.

Aiding and abetting this risky ploy is Erik Killmonger (a beyond-charismatic Michael B. Jordan of Creed), an ex-US military agent who knows more than he is letting on about the mystical Wakandan way of life.
