Former first lady of the US, Michelle Obama believes the film Black Panther will be an inspiration to individuals from all backgrounds.

She appreciated and hailed the team of Black Panther, which is among the first films from the house of Marvel Studios that has a predominantly black cast and also shows a number of women of substance who work as the allies of the protagonist T'Challa (Chadwick Boseman).

She posted a tweet yesterday praising the team of Black Panther.

Set shortly after Captain America: Civil War, Black Panther shows T'Challa returning home to the isolated, technologically-advanced African nation of Wakanda to become king. 

During a press conference held in Seoul, Korea, Boseman told media that "the idea that T'Challa is the leader of a nation that is most technologically advanced on the continent of Africa is an intriguing notion to a lot of people. Unlike a dictator or a president that you see now, he (T'Challa) puts on a suit to deal with the situation. When in reality, they would turn into their military or sorts. That itself is a revolutionary idea, and also within his country, he is dealing with the set traditions of people isolated from the rest of the world. The idea that he is breaking those wires of isolation is revolutionary."

Distributed by Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures, Black Panther is the 18th film in the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU). It also features Lupita Nyong'o, Michael B Jordan, Daniel Kaluuya, Letitia Wright, Winston Duke, Angela Bassett, Forest Whitaker and Andy Serkis.
