In about two weeks time, the cinema’s will be filled with enthusiastic fans who can’t wait to see the first ever live-action movie of the Black Panther. We’ve seen him before in Captain America: Civil War, but just like the other major characters in the MCU, he deserved his own movie. And it’s going to be a good one because Daniel Kaluuya even described the movie as “Marvel’s Game of Thrones (2011).”

12. Spread the frosting onto the cooled cookies.
