As we are about two weeks away from the official release of Marvel’s Black Panther in the states, we get reactions from two directorial veterans of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. First up, James Gunn, the man responsible for bringing my favorite MCU movie to the screen, Guardians of the Galaxy. You can check out Gunn’s post below.

Some big-time praise from Gunn, who knows a thing or two about bringing Marvel character to the big screen as evidenced by his two Guardians of the Galaxy films. Gunn’s Guardians of the Galaxy should cross paths with T’Challa/Black Panther in the upcoming Avengers: Infinity War.
Peyton Reed, the man who directed both 2015’s Ant-Man and the upcoming Ant-Man and the Wasp, also expressed his overwhelming approval for the latest entry into the MCU. You can see Reed’s post below.
BLACK PANTHER is fantastic. Beautiful, soulful, thoughtful and of the moment. Ryan Coogler knows what he’s doing. Long live T’Challa!

Both Gunn’s and Reed’s words bode well for us peasants who have to wait until the film is officially released. From the early reactions, it appears Marvel has another home run in Black Panther. 2018 will be a huge year for Marvel, who now has Deadpool back under their banner, and along with the Merc with the Mouth’s sequel and Black Panther, the culmination of 10 years of the MCU will arrive in early May, in the form of Avengers: Infinity War.
