The Nose Goes To 'Black Panther'

Ryan Coogler's Black Panther is the eighteenth feature film entry in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. It is the sixth movie in Phase Three, and it's most directly a sequel to Captain America: Civil War, the first film of the phase.

If you didn't really follow any of that, don't worry: neither did I. And it doesn't really matter. What does matter is that Black Panther is "one of the most important cultural moments in American history" and "a defining moment for black America" and a "very important black film."

The Nose weighs in.

Other possible topics include:


  • Taneisha Duggan - Producing associate at TheaterWorks
  • Rich Hollant - Principal and design director at CO:LAB and a commissioner on cultural affairs for the city of Hartford
  • Kate Rushin - A poet who teaches writing and literature for Hartford Youth Scholars
