Wakanda forever: The overt feminism of ‘Black Panther’

One of the false narratives that is perpetuated by Hollywood is that movies that star men — white men — are universal, and movies that star women and nonwhite people are niche.

One of the most glorious things about “Wonder Woman’s” success this past summer is its $821 million worldwide box office which proved emphatically that big action movies that star women can be successful on a global scale. It demolished the long-held conceit of the last 15 years, which put men at the center of all the superhero stories.

As “Black Panther” opens across the world, we see the long-held trope about the universality of stories of non-white characters decimated, hopefully forever.
