For media educator

Black Panther represents the more serious and grown-up end of Marvel’s Avengers franchise without being dark. The film intelligently deals with e.g. themes of colonialism and oppression of blacks. The difference between right and wrong also doesn’t appear as clear-cut or defined according to the values ​​of Western society and capitalism (which are even challenged at times) as in superhero movies in general.

Black Panther has received well-deserved praise for its treatment of African and black culture. In addition to the visuals that burst out beautifully with Africa, the film’s plot also centers on black culture and black destinies. Despite the seriousness of the themes, Black Panther’s age limit matches its contents. Many of the fights in the film are fought with bare fists, which can add to the sense of realism of the violence. (Source Media-avain.fi) The film has been awarded three Oscars: best music, best costume design and best production design.
