    Not a great Marvel film but not a bad one either which gives it a headstart on most films. Fairly predictable, slightly too long and a tad preachy in it’s black power message. The main issue is what I call the “Suoerman Conundrum”. When suited up T’Challa is practically invincible so the film had to, very unsubtly, create a weakness. His “kryptonite”, so to speak.  The film has created an interesting change in the technological level of the Marvel world…
