Dilogy Black Panther is dedicated to the adventures of heroes who have superhuman powers. The debut film was presented in 2018, and the second is scheduled for release in 2022. This is a screen version of the comic book of the same name about a superhero named Black Panther and originally written by Jack Kirby and Stan Lee. The original movie was written by Joe Robert Cole and Ryan Kyle Coogler. Marvel Studios took over as publisher. The film company began main shooting in 2017, even though work had begun several years earlier. The idea for the project was proposed by actor Wesley Trent Snipes back in the 1990s.

Meaning and History

Black Panther Logo History
Evolution of the Black Panther Logo

The film crew paid attention to the plot components and the visual identity, which was supposed to advantageously present Black Panther and set it apart from other superhero films. The movie logo combines two striking elements. The first is the studio symbol, which owns the rights to the film and all the characters, including the main character.

This emblem looks traditional: on the left is the white word “MARVEL” inside a red rectangle, and on the right is the black “STUDIOS,” underlined above and below with thin lines. The brand name has been scaled down and moved to the very top so that all the attention is focused on the film’s title.

Most of the space is reserved for the blue “BLACK PANTHER” lettering. The designers put the word “BLACK” in the first line and made it compact. “PANTHER” is located in the lower half of the logo and is larger than the rest of the elements. The phrase is colored dark blue and has a gradient. Another decoration technique is light highlights, which create depth and resemble reflections on the water.

The title of the film looks monolithic and impressive because the letters have a wide golden border. This contour makes them appear three-dimensional, in contrast to the top lettering “MARVEL STUDIOS.” The non-standard “fairytale” logo design matches the fantasy genre. And acute-angled letters with protruding spikes and serifs personify another direction of the motion picture – the action movie.

Symbol Black Panther

The symbol of the superhero Black Panther and the film is an image of a mask with cat ears, a W-shaped nose, and large slits for the eyes. This icon is similar to the main character’s mask but has several differences. First of all, it is a simplified version because the elements are presented schematically. For example, the mouth has two short vertical lines that look like a pause in the media. The eyes are exaggeratedly enlarged and have an uneven elongated shape. The nose only vaguely resembles a cat’s – it looks more like a stylized letter “W.”

The facial expressions are reflected in wide white stripes that cross the black mask at different angles. They are located strictly symmetrically: what is on the right is always on the left. There are two horizontal lines on the forehead. This is not so much an attempt to imitate the color of a panther, but rather the joints of the plates on the superhero’s mask. The intricate curves above the eye sockets resemble menacingly drawn eyebrows. And two stripes on the cheeks can denote both sunken cheekbones and ritual drawings on the warrior’s face.

Font and Colors of the Emblem

The top of the Black Panther logo looks like a classic Marvel Studios wordmark. It uses two fonts: Benton Sans Compressed Black by Cyrus Highsmith and Kenyan Coffee Regular by Ray Larabie. The film’s title is written in a custom typeface with short serifs, wide stripes, and asymmetry. Based on this design, user Gene Buban came up with the Panthera font family.

Black Panther Symbol

Logo colors, like typography, are varied. The developers combined several shades of blue in a gradient, added white reflections, and outlined the letters with golden lines with a tone transition. All this made it possible to revive the words “BLACK PANTHER” and emphasize the fantastic direction of the action movie. The top of the logo is completely different. It combines three colors: red, white and black. The mask emblem is completely black with single white elements.
