If you were to ask basically anyone who's excited about Black Panther why they think the film is important, you'd undoubtedly hear many an explanation about how it, unlike virtually every other superhero movie, features a cast and story that young, black kids can see themselves in.

As with many Marvel films, Thor: Ragnarok left audiences with more than a couple of unsolved mysteries and unresolved issues after its final end-credits scene. Here are 10 questions we have the answers to, courtesy of Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige and Ragnarok director Taika Waititi - and well as the five biggest questions the movie left unanswered.
Suggest to Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige that the Thor movies aren't as beloved as his other films and he points to the reviews. "I remind you that Thor 1 is Certified Fresh and Thor 2 is Fresh," he said. But if those films were as revered as the rest of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Taika Waititi wouldn't have made Thor: Ragnarok.
If you saw Spider-Man: Homecoming and want some more answers, you've come to the right place. Don't worry, this isn't one of Rob's FAQs, but we can still fill in some of the gaps, point out things you may have missed, and tell you everything else you need to know -- with help from Homecoming's director, star and producers -- about the Marvel Cinematic Universe's Friendly Neighbourhood hero.
Part of what makes Spider-Man Spider-Man is his ingenuity. His ability to make things on his own and be an independent superhero. Which is why some fans were concerned when trailers for Spider-Man Homecoming made it seem like Tony Stark did most of the work for him.
Video: Superman: The Movie is still one of the most iconic and influential superhero films of all time, its legacy being felt in the superhero movies made today. But it, and the man who swooped in to save it -- the legendary Richard Donner -- perhaps made their most important impact as inspirations for the careers of both Geoff Johns and Kevin Feige.
Five years ago, if you asked anyone if Spider-Man would ever appear in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, the answer would have been no. There was no way Sony was going to share Marvel's most popular superhero with Disney. But, miraculously, it happened. That leaves only a few major Marvel superheroes who aren't in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, most of which reside at 20th Century Fox. Of course, the X-Men are the biggest ones, including Wolverine, Deadpool and the rest, but there's also the Fantastic Four.
Kevin Feige just said that the title for the fourth Avengers movie is a spoiler, which is why it hasn't been announced yet. He also said that Infinity War and the mystery movie are very different films. So why does it seem like Zoe Saldana has revealed the title? Logically, she can't have.
For a long time, Marvel's next two Avengers movies were titled Infinity War: Part I and Part II. Then, last year, it was announced that the first movie had been retitled Avengers: Infinity War, while the second movie would get a new name in the future -- one we still haven't been told. Apparently that's on purpose.
