Below is the synopsis of "Black Panther," per IMDB

T'Challa, after the death of his father, the King of Wakanda, returns home to the isolated, technologically advanced African nation to succeed to the throne and take his rightful place as king.

Mashable's collection of celebrity reactions argue moviegoers can definitely give in to the hype! The film is groundbreaking and a culturally significant phenomenon everyone can enjoy. 

According to the reactions, Gizmodo argues that Marvel may have a new king: 

With a few small exceptions, the reactions basically range from “This is amazing” to “This is the best Marvel movie ever.” Yes, some fans and critics are already ready to crown the film the best Marvel movie yet. Is it? Well, you’ll all be able to make your own decision on February 16. But for now, here are just a small sampling of the reactions.

Black moviegoers have waited so long for a groundbreaking epic that culturally centered and captured a black superhero. While some critics have pointed out that "Black Panther" isn't the first black superhero film, there hasn't been a superhero film centering a classic black superhero made on the same level as classic white superhero counterparts. 

All moviegoers interested have a right to be as hype as they want—especially black geeks who've been advocating for better mainstream representation.

But some of the hype has skeptics worried and losing interest. Is there such a thing as too much hype? We guess so.

And again—some moviegoers are acting like leading black superheroes in cinema haven't existed before "Black Panther." That's untrue, and we can't let the hype make us forget about the films that paved the way.
