A revolutionary hero

Like last year’s “Wonder Woman,” “Black Panther” (⋆⋆⋆, PG-13) takes a revolutionary stance on how we should recognize heroes. The protagonist (Chadwick Boseman) is the sort of regal futuristic leader that “Iron Man’s” Tony Stark might be if he’d attended a good finishing school. Pushing past many of the formulas of comic book blockbusters, director Ryan Coogler (“Creed”) makes the villain a scarred antihero, and the looming conflict an international race war rather than intergalactic strife.
