Black Panther has been nominated for a grand total of seven awards at the 2018 MTV Movie & TV Awards. Released earlier this year, Black Panther marked the first solo outing for T’Challa after his debut in Captain America: Civil War and saw the newly crowed King of Wakanda face a challenge to the throne from the ominously named Killmonger.
Black Panther made several vital contributions to the Marvel Cinematic Universe including the technologically advanced state of Wakanda, Danai Gurira’s fierce warrior Okoye and T’Challa’s genius younger sister, Shuri, all of which ended up playing key roles in Marvel’s huge team-up event, Avengers: Infinity War.
The release of Black Panther was already widely acclaimed prior to its release for bringing a black superhero to the forefront of their own solo movie and upon hitting theaters, became a huge critical and commercial success, even by Marvel Studios’ own high standards.
Black Panther passed Titanic on the way to becoming one of the top 10 highest grossing films worldwide and earned the highest Rotten Tomatoes score for a superhero movie.
