A tweet from Marvelous Realm has the dirt, unearthing a Facebook group that was trying to organize people to give Black Panther bad scores on Rotten Tomatoes.

She added, "I mean".

The 41-year-old American stars in the titular role in the 18th movie in the Marvel Cinematic Universe - the first black superhero to get his own standalone movie. "And a lot of black work and creativity went into its making".

Black Panther features a largely black cast including Chadwick Boseman, Michael B. Jordan and Lupita Nyong'o.

Black Panther now outpaces all superhero movies in presales, surpassing 2016's Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice.

T'Challa, after the death of his father, the King of Wakanda, returns home to the isolated, technologically advanced African nation to succeed to the throne and take his rightful place as king.

Han and Vulture editor Kyle Buchanan both singled out Letitia Wright for her character Shuri, T'Challa's inventor sister.

This isn't exactly breaking news, but there are fans out there who only like Marvel or DC movies and don't like the other.

There hasn't even been any full length reviews released yet but the latest Marvel film has been getting some encouraging attention across social media.

"Black Panther" doesn't premiere until February 16, but the long-awaited Marvel comic film starring a black superhero, T'Challa, who becomes king of the African nation Wakanda following his father's death, has been getting rave reviews. IndieWire critic David Ehrlich wrote that it's, "Like a Marvel movie but better". Black Panther set a Fandango record earlier this month for also being the top pre-selling MCU film in the first 24 hours.
