The Hulk doesn’t exactly have a way with words, but Ruffalo certainly does.
9. Kerry Washington
Deeply moving. Gorgeously executed. Joyously fun. #BlackPanther is everything

Olivia Pope vs. T’Challa. Now there’s a gladiator match the Grandmaster needs to set up.
8. Brie Larson
One of the best things you can do for yourself and/or the ones you love is purchase some #BlackPanther tix. I know it’s expensive to go to the theater, but its worth it for this one. You will exit forever impacted.

Captain Marvel summed up our thoughts exactly.
7. Barry Jenkins
BLACK PANTHER is PEAK double consciousness. It’s a Marvel movie, sure. And a blockbuster, absolutely, covers those bases and covers them well. But a film that features that vegetarian bit? Or Kilmonger’s last line? Ryan’s made two movies at once. And he crushed them both 🙌🏿

That’s really saying something, coming from the director of the Best Picture winning Moonlight.
6. Viola Davis

She might’ve been in DC’s Suicide Squad, but Amanda Waller herself can’t deny how awesome Black Panther is.
5. Chris Pratt
THE HYPE IS REAL!! Woke up thinking about #BlackPanther It’s like a Bond movie meets Shakespearean tragedy. Great action. Stunning visuals. Exceptional performances all around. Thought provoking AND Funny! @chadwickboseman @letitiawright @michaelb4jordan @DanaiGurira 👏🏻

4. Ava DuVernay
I’ve loved the Black Panther reaction videos, read the reviews/think pieces, swooned over folks lining theaters, tried to teach myself Panther flash mob dance moves, admired all the African threads. But this. This broke me. Our babies. Our young ones. Imagine the seeds planted… pic.twitter.com/rEbsjm5gld

The director of Selma and A Wrinkle in Time was clearly moved by the picture.
3. Ryan Reynolds

Even Deadpool is hailing this king.
2. Oprah Winfrey

And how can you possibly top an endorsement from Oprah?
1. Michelle Obama
Congrats to the entire #blackpanther team! Because of you, young people will finally see superheroes that look like them on the big screen. I loved this movie and I know it will inspire people of all backgrounds to dig deep and find the courage to be heroes of their own stories.
