Black Panther has gotten its first bad review - and fans are furious

Black Panther has gotten its first bad review - and fans are furious

There's no shortage of compelling Marvel characters in Black Panther, but if director Ryan Coogler had his way, there would've been at least one more.

Following yesterday's first negative review for Marvel's Black Panther, now a second "Rotten" review has surfaced on Rotten Tomatoes.

Coogler recently told Yahoo! that he originally wanted to include Kraven the Hunter in the upcoming blockbuster, but he wasn't able to due to contractual issues.

A Change.org petition is calling on Marvel Studios and The Walt Disney Company to invest 25 percent of the profits for the hot new film "Black Panther" into the black community.




Of course, Walmart wants to remind you that it is "the destination for all things Black Panther".

"I've always loved Kraven the Hunter in nearly every iteration", Coogler explains to Yahoo UK. "There was a Christopher Priest run that was pretty heavy, there's a big scene where Panther's fighting Kraven, Kraven the Hunter". Marvel Studios has a licensing agreement with Sony that allows them to use certain, unspecified Spider-Man characters. In response, Rotten Tomatoes issued a statement assuring that "any users who engage in such activities will be blocked from our site and their comments removed as quickly as possible".

Boseman's co-stars Letitia Wright and Daniel Kaluuya made the very apt point that all they cared about was making sure that it got to the audience that it was intended for. But when a powerful old enemy reappears, T'Challa's mettle as king-and Black Panther-is tested when he is drawn into a formidable conflict that puts the fate of Wakanda and the entire world at risk. Now, the critically adored film has fulfilled that early promise with Black Panther: The Album (***1/2 out of four), out Friday, which Lamar curated and contributed to. Faced with treachery and danger, the young king must rally his allies and release the full power of Black Panther to defeat his foes and secure the safety of his people and their way of life.
