On one hand I get that too (you don't want to trivialize someone's struggle), but no one complains that Captain America in WW2 diminishes the service of American soldiers--even during the war.  There have probably been a lot of real world events that comic book histories have subtly altered.  Actually, it happens a lot in fiction.
in order for tchalla to help his african brethern, he would have to conquer them to see his point of veiw in going against colonialism.


Captain America comics were produced during WW2 showing him fighting Nazis and no one felt that trivialized the servicemen who were actually dying fighting Nazis.  I mean, kids were reading about Cap fighting Nazis while their father, older brother died on those fields.  Never heard anyone saying that Cap's action trivialize their sacrifices.

There might be other reasons why Cap gets away with it (namely race for instance), but I think the reason why it works for him is because Cap was (and is) a propaganda character. He was a very product of that time and for that reason he could inspire those actually doing the work. Black Panther may have been inspired by the liberation of African countries (hence the anti-colonial theme) and a post Civil Rights era America, but he was never created for that kind of propaganda and for that reason, so those feelings aren't immediately attached to him by African people. If it was (perhaps if he was explicitly created to tap into those feelings) then these may work (especially if the actions of Wakanda focus on this time period). Slavery era is so far removed from Black Panther's time that I think it's a bit harder to bring up positive emotions about seeing them or members of the country secretly doing things like that. Honestly I could be wrong and I'm not picturing it right, but it might not land.

and I could see the "flash back ot T'chaka and jbobobobo" being the very first part of the movie to plant the seed on Killmonger and possibly gain him some sympanthy points

then cuts tot he dont freeze action set piece.

That sort of story telling is rather consistent with MCU movies (flashback/slow scene then jump immediately to the hero beating ass).
did you go to the private screening?you pretty much nail it

Still gets me every time

who you kiddin, i'm going to the test screening

green hornet all the way. 1 black beauty was no joke. 2 the hornet sting is an effective weapon against anyone holding a weapon. 3 kato acting as a bodyguard, valet, aide whatever you want to call it was just pure badass. gh didn't have to wory about sh*t. the fight scenes were good. 5. last but not least. the plots.. I like the fact that he always manipulating  his nemesis before he lowers the boom.

my point was that batman became pussywhipped to the point where he gave dick grayson his walking paper and made catwoman his partner. a street hero is not suppose to be whipped  to a point where you forget your principals
