The 54-year-old lawyer-writer took to Twitter to laud the Ryan Coogler-directed film, which is being touted as a grand welcome to Marvel's first black superhero in actor Chadwick Boseman.

"Congrats to the entire #blackpanther team! Because of you, young people will finally see superheroes that look like them on the big screen.

"I loved this movie and I know it will inspire people of all backgrounds to dig deep and find the courage to be heroes of their own stories," Obama tweeted.

Black Panther is the first Marvel film to be led by a person of colour and featuring a virtually all-black cast with Michael B Jordan, Lupita Nyong'o, Danai Gurira, Andy Serkis, Martin Freeman among others.

The movie is receiving rave reviews and is going strong at the box office.
