Black Panther – giddily enjoyable Afro-futurist saga



Black Panther, the latest Marvel offering, premiered in LA to rave reviews with a 98% from Rotten Tomatoes and 4/5 from Den of Geek. The Variety review called it: “a giddily enjoyable, convention-bucking 134-minute epic that somehow manages to simultaneously be a comic-book blockbuster, a pulsating espionage thriller and an Afro-futurist family saga.”

Production started by 21 January 2017 with a powerfully confident Jupiter opposition Uranus square Pluto which augured well; and it premiered with a Pluto Jupiter sextile, so the stars were aligned.

Ryan Coogler directed, 23 May 1986, whose previous movies have earned him several awards. He’s a multi-talented and serious Sun Mercury in Gemini opposition Saturn (Moon) in Sagittarius. He’s looking upbeat this month for the premiere with tr Uranus trine his Sun/Jupiter midpoint; certainly in year of tumultuous change. Though along with the ups there’ll be a few setbacks ahead as well.

Chadwick Boseman, the star, 29 November 1977, Anderson SC, was previously the lead in the movie ‘Marshall’ about the first Afro-American Supreme Court Judge and James Brown in ‘Get On Up’. He is a Sun Sagittarius in a dynamic trine to Mars in Leo, sextiling onto Pluto, and his Sun square a hard-working square to Saturn in Virgo. He’s also looking chipper with tr Pluto trine his Sun/Jupiter and tr Uranus trine his Jupiter/Pluto this month. With even better ahead in 2019/2020. Though oddly both he and Coogler have tr Neptune opposition their Mars/Pluto midpoint this month as well which might suggest something isn’t going quite to plan.
