‘Black Panther’ Opens Worldwide

Disney superhero sci-fi blockbuster reveals new technology we may soon see

SEOUL, SOUTH KOREA – (L-R) Actor Michael B. Jordan, Chadwick Boseman, Lupita Nyong’o, and director Ryan Coogler hold placard (above) wishing the success of their KENYA-US-ARTS-CINEMAnew movie at a red carpet event for the Seoul premiere of ‘Black Panther’ in Seoul, South Korea.

The 2018 U.S. superhero film based on the Marvel Comics character, ‘Black Panther’ also opened this week in the Kenyan capital of Nairobi (left) on February 14th.

Throughout ‘Black Panther’, movie goers are subtly reminded that most people and characters believe the fictional country of Wakanda to be a poor, third-world nation. However, reality on screen portrays Wakunda as the most technologically advanced country on Earth, with all kinds of weaponry, science, and tech that far surpass what all other countries have.

The King of Wakunda and his entourage leverage the latest in technology, science, and weapon systems in very exciting roles throughout Disney’s new Marvel superhero blockbuster.  As shown throughout the movie, similar technology is coming very soon to the ‘real world’ for us: advanced medicine, flying cars, holographic images, protective coatings and armor for soldiers, vehicles, and spacecraft.

‘Black Panther’ is in theaters, now.
