Thor Star Chris Hemsworth Blown Away By Black Panther

Talk of Marvel’s Black Panther has swept the nation – nay the world.

Leading up to February 16th, the Ryan Coogler-directed spinoff began to establish itself as the must-see movie of 2018 – second only to Avengers: Infinity War. Box office projections were quickly adjusted, and though Black Panther became shackled with a great deal of expectation, Marvel’s Afrocentric epic delivered the goods. And then some.

It’s arguably one of the most accomplished MCU movies to date (our review), with a nuanced and, crucially, believable villain set against the lush realm of Wakanda. And sure enough, the franchise’s stars are all digging it. Just the other day, we heard from Chris Pratt, with the actor sharing that he absolutely loved what Coogler and co. had put together.

Now, another Chris is speaking up, with Thor star Chris Hemsworth revealing via Instagram that he caught the film recently and was absolutely blown away. Taking to the social media platform, he posted the following:

Just saw @blackpanther last night, wow wow wow, blown away, get out and see it if you haven’t already!! Congrats to all involved, epic work

Unsurprisingly, Hemsworth’s reaction to the pic is pretty much on par with everyone else’s. Black Panther mania is sweeping the nation it seems, and at this point, the film really feels more like a pent-up cultural movement than your average installment in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

It also flies in the face of the outdated Hollywood logic that a movie featuring a predominantly black cast won’t sell. Because with its wonderfully diverse cast and crew, Black Panther has “obliterated expectations” and hopped straight into the Hollywood history books, where it’ll likely remain for a long, long time.
