Read The First Responses to Marvel's 'Black Panther'
Monday night was the world premiere of Marvel'sBlack Panther.Moments after the premiere ended, at 1:00am EST, the social media embargo for the film was lifted.
People who sawBlack Panther could start talking about the film.
Throughout the night, people who saw Black Panther started to tweet their thoughts. (Luckily, no one broke any spoiler rules.) There isn't an official Rotten Tomatoes barometer for tweets, but if there was the score would be 100 percent.

Here are some of the notable responses:
\u201cSo much love for Black Panther. The exploration of Wakanda is phenomenal, Erik Killmonger is unquestionably one of Marvel's best villains, and manages to be both fun and dramatic. Can't wait to see it again!\u201d— Eric Eisenberg (@Eric Eisenberg) 1517292033

The 1st MCU movie about something real; Michael B. Jordan\u2019s Killmonger had me weeping and he\u2019s the VILLAIN\u201d— jen yamato (@jen yamato) 1517292219
