My favourite thing about Black Panther is
Both the protagonist and the antagonist cry onscreen. Most moviemakers have this idea that the “male” shouldn’t cry; and the antagonist crying is completely out of question
But in this movie, that scene where Erik sees his father again after so long and they both have tears in their eyes or the one where T'challa finds out what his father did and he has so much pain in his eyes. His pain isn’t dismissed.
Like T'challa’s character itself is so warm and soft. Like yes he is the Black Panther but I am pretty sure T'challa’s patronus would be tiny cute kitten
Anyways I just really like that they showed that. Like let men cry and feel pain. Let them know its okay to feel. You don’t have to be Macho™ all the time
Like that scene in Thor 2 after their mom dies and when the guard tells Loki he just nods but in the next scene we see how completely distraught he is by her death.
Let men show emotion
Also I FUCKING LOVE BLACK PANTHER SO MUCH
