Expect many more firsts for "Black Panther" as records are broken.

Directed by Ryan Coogler from a script he wrote with Joe Robert Cole, Black Panther stars Chadwick Boseman as T'Challa, Michael B. Jordan as Erik Killmonger, Lupita Nyong'o as Nakia, Daniel Kaluuya as W'Kabi, Letitia Wright as Shuri, Danai Gurira as Okoye, Angela Bassett as Ramonda, Martin Freeman as Everett K. Ross, Andy Serkis as Ulysses Klaue, Winston Duke as M'Baku and Forest Whitaker as Zuri.

White House sees good chance of long-term budget deal
"I would be very surprised if more than a couple of the Freedom Caucus members would vote yes", Meadows said . He was chief of staff for House Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi and a 25-year veteran of Capitol Hill.

Coogler recently told Yahoo! that he originally wanted to include Kraven the Hunter in the upcoming blockbuster, but he wasn't able to due to contractual issues.

For those who don't know, Kraven the Hunter was first introduced back in The Amazing Spider-Man #15 from 1964.

US Military jets BOMB Pro Syrian Regime forces
Neither U.S. officials nor the U.S. -backed coalition have offered details on the identity of attacking forces. After the attack the coalition "conducted strikes against attacking forces to repel the act of aggression".

Of course, Walmart wants to remind you that it is "the destination for all things Black Panther". Black Panther certainly fits neatly into the category, while the jungle setting of Wakanda seems like the ideal habitat for Kraven to be sharpening his knives and reloading his shotgun. "There was a Christopher Priest run that was pretty heavy, there's a big scene where Panther's fighting Kraven".

"Black Panther" has already proven to be a smash hit, garnering an early 100 percent score on Rotten Tomatoes and gloriously celebrating African culture.

More Snow in Store for This Week, Winter Storm Watch Issued
A Winter Weather Advisory is scheduled to go into effect at six Tuesday night and remain in effect until six Wednesday morning. Snow will start later in the day Tuesday and continue through the night when 5- to 8 inches of wet, heavy snow is possible.

Gormley goes on to say that while it is a "symbolic victory" to see a major studio film with a majority black cast, black director and art direction helmed by black artists, this achievement doesn't gain anything for the black community. Likewise, Kraven, who's also a founding member of the Spidey foe collective, The Sinister Six (which Sony has long-eyed for a spinoff film), is also the center of one of Spider-Man's darkest and most tragic storylines, in 1987's "Kraven's Last Hunt" run, which saw the foe commit suicide after he was satisfied that he fulfilled his goal in finally defeating his web-spinning foe (of course, in true comic book fashion, he was later resurrected.).
