    To Marriska Fernandes I agree. Sadly there is a troll who keeps bashing this movie in this site and have the nerves saying the director plagiarized the idea from others movies. This site needs to fix the system because we can tell is the same person over and over again posting the same things. Plus user makes fun of anyone who give a positive reviews to Black Panther. Marvel should check this out because user keeps saying the movie was stolen from others movies. I am disappointed with all the harassment to users in here from this troll and the site have not fix this problem yet.

    Shame on for allowing the Troll (same person) to lower the ratings on the Black Panther movie.
