The global success of "Black Panther" has challenged the myth that films with predominantly black casts don't sell ― and it helps unravel "unwritten Hollywood rules", Jeff Bock, a senior analyst at entertainment research firm Exhibitor Relations, told The New York Times. Overseas, the Marvel title now ranks above almost all recent comic-book movie adaptations. Yet, Black Panther's proved to be more than just a good movie.

From Hollywood's perspective, the more significant threat may be China's increasing confidence in its own domestic releases; they will need to develop even more movies that can compete with it. But I also found problems with Black Panther.

Fundamentally, however, I am ecstatic that we are finally seeing glimpses of the representation we deserve onscreen. The brilliance of black film in this present moment is indisputable.
