The Lexi welcomes King T'Challa of Wakanda!

Marvel lets rip in this subversive, uproarious African superhero adventure.  Picking up from Captain America:  Civil War, T'Challa (Chadwick Boseman) returns home to the African kingdom of Wakanda, regarded by the outside world as poor and primitive.  Within its impenetrable mountain borders, though, is a prosperous, sophisticated, technologically advanced society.  Its wonders - mono-rails, flying cars, et al - are powered by the secret energy source, the miraculous element vibranium, which also powers the bodysuit which transforms T'Challa into superhero Black Panther.  Back home T'Challa is supported by an awful lot of pretty awesome women - secret agent Lupita Nyong'o, inventor Letitia Wright, and (non-female!) Forest Whitaker as his Adviser.  You'd think that if T'Challa could just protect Wakanda from the outside world, it would be Paradise found, but no such prospect:  there is a pretender to T'Challa's throne, the CIA are about, and word of the valuable vibranium has leaked out...

This looks fabulous, and it's a joyous, adrenaline-driven ride!  (There are whispers from Lexi staff that they haven't had so much fun since Mad Max:  Fury Road.)  Dare we say it?  It's a marvel...
