  • Black Panther is now what can be very safely called an “instant classic,” and, additionally, “very great and quotable.” Hence, out of it arose the “M’Baku Challenge,” where fans recreate the scene from the film where M’Baku — the leader of a rival Wakandan tribe — challenges Black Panther in a fight for the position of King of Wakanda. It’s an excellent scene, where M’Baku mocks T’Challa for his father’s death before jumping into a battle scene. It’s incredible, and the Internet has rightfully responded to this incredibly young thespian with joy.

    I, for one, want to see this kid re-enact as much of Black Panther as he imaginably can. Like that scene where T’Challa confronts his father — that incredibly emotional scene that takes place in the afterlife and brings a tear to every eye? I mean like… what if a kid played it? I don’t know, but this video is great, right? What do you think though? Let us know in the comments or on Twitter at @WhatsTrending.
