    Matt writes: In honor of last weekend's crowd-pleasing hit, "Black Panther," the eagerly anticipated Marvel blockbuster helmed by "Creed" director Ryan Coogler, we have gathered three articles about the picture that is sure to delight fans of all ages. First up are Nell Minow's in-depth interviews with Coogler as well as costume designer Ruth Carter. We also have a beautiful four-star review penned by our critic Odie Henderson, who writes, “The numerous battle sequences that are staples of the genre are present, but they float on the surface of a deep ocean of character development and attention to details both grandiose and minute.”
