I LOVE superhero movies. Well, to be precise, Marvel superhero movies. I think MOST DC movies lack the humor and flair of Marvel movies.
But I must admit a pre-existing bias in favor of Marvel. When I was a young kid, my mom provided daycare for the children of a comic book collector. He wasn't one of those collectors who wrapped his comics and didn't touch them. He brought me a packing box FULL of comic books each week.
I read them all and returned them. I still partially credit my love of reading to him.
They were Marvel comics. For Christmas, he gave me a year's subscription to Fantastic Four - still among my favorite superheroes (SpiderMan is my favorite).
I love the backstory of Black Panther and the trailers have been loaded with eye-popping action sequences. So I am not surprised that the movie had blockbuster opening day figures and is projected to take in nearly $200 million in its opening weekend.
The movie is also on the verge of being the best-reviewed superhero film on Rotten Tomatoes ever.
