Black Panther has already become an international sensation and we asked our writers and friends to send us Black Panther selfies and let us know what they thought of the movie. Here are some of our favorite reactions:
Before it released Black Panther was already changing the game:
#BlackPanther is so popular even my work is sending emails letting me know its out now

And then the adventure really began:
Good night Twitter friends. Go see #BlackPanther because you will meet #Shuri and #Nakia and #Okoye and lots of new Wakandan friends. Plus, let's hope we get a #Shuri and #PeterParker meet cute in #InfinityWar or at least a #Shuri tech takedown of #TonyStark pic.twitter.com/o5VeQdzPhq

Shuri was a fast favorite:
I wish I had seen #BlackPanther as a young girl. I can't imagine what seeing @letitiawright as #Shuri would have done for me as a kid. I loved science as a kid and as much as I love ladies kicking butt, seeing a teenager create tech in a lab would have sparked so much in me. pic.twitter.com/Rl7oLFbfr8

Intelligent, Witty, Independent, Beautiful, And Fierce!
And #Shuri is all of those too 😉
But we are talking about @letitiawright and her OUTSTANDING performance as the Wakandan head of tech (and the princess)

Coogler and the team knocked it out of the park
An overlooked thing in #BlackPanther? How smooth the dialogue was. Almost no one said a line that felt forced. The council deliberations, him and Shuri, Killmonger, not a word was wasted. Coogler does a REALLY good job at that

Ryan Coogler is going to be massive! Such a great talent and still so young! I hope he's already building shelves to hold his awards 🙂 https://t.co/Lyj397EE6p

There wasn’t a single bad performance in #BlackPanther but Gurira and Wright commanded so much presence that they left me breathless. Duke was a fantastic highlight. Hollywood, it has BEEN time, let them shine everywhere.

You could just feel the ways that #BlackPanther was an in universe MCU game changer. There were so many things to get fans excited for what lies ahead. It will be looked at as an important sort of passing of the torch that showed the post RDJ/Chris/Chris future was bright

With it smashing box-office records, there is no denying Black Panther is a game changer. Not just for Marvel but the whole movie industry. Its time.
After the breakout performances in #BlackPanther, if they don't come back with a second volume of World of Wakanda, Marvel’s fucking up.

And the tweet that most accurately summed up our initial reactions:
