Fans dressed up for ‘Black Panther’s opening night—and they looked incredible
More than two weeks after Hollywood wore “royal attire” to the Black Panther world premiere, fan finally got to see the movie Thursday night and celebrated with a mix of cosplay and African-inspired outfits of their own.
While Marvel always has strong showings at the movies, the launch of Black Panther—the first Marvel Cinematic Universe film centering around a black superhero—was an event. And fans who saw the movie—some who were finally seeing themselves reflected on-screen for the first time—marked the occasion in style.
