Not All DC Fans Are Crazy; One Group Is Raising Significant Donations For #THEBLACKPANTHERCHALLENGE
The #BlackPantherChallenge is a cause that calls for donations to send underprivileged innercity kids to the theater to see Black Panther. One DC fan group is especially rising to the challenge.
Thank You @screenrant for signal boosting our #BlackPantherChallenge! Truth is, most DC fans are very supportive of Black Panther and are actively donating! We appreciate this article & appreciate the shift to covering fans & not trolls— Sheraz Farooqi (@SherazFarooqi_) February 1, 2018

#TheBlackPantherChallenge was originally launched in Harlem and has since spread to other major U.S. cities and even a few countries. Most notably, actress Octavia Spencer joined the movement and is renting out an entire theater in Mississippi for Black Panther screenings.
Before it's all said and done, Black Panther might go down as the most highly-anticipated superhero film of 2018, a statement that's hard to fully comprehend in a year that also sees a third Avengers film released. Some analysts and pundits believe the film could have a Wonder Woman-like box office draw, suffering only minuscule box office drop-offs in the weeks after its release.
