It may have taken longer than some fans would have liked, but Marvel has finally made plans to introduce a minority superhero. Black Panther will hit our screens in 2017, and the African hero will be making history by being the first black superhero in a big budget movie. A lesser known hero than the likes of The Avengers or Iron Man; many do not know what to expect from a big screen adaptation.
The Black Panther’s name predates the October 1966 founding of the Black Panther Party, but is in no way affiliated with it. He is deemed the first black superhero in mainstream comic books.
