The Marvel film world  is also about to get a lot more diverse. For the first time an African American hero will headline a film with Black Panther which hits theaters November 3, 2017.

Feige says there should be an announcement soon about who will direct Captain Marvel. There are firmer plans in place for Black Panther. Chadwick Boseman, who played Jackie Robinson in 42, will play the superhero and today he appeared onstage with Robert Downey Jr., who plays Iron Man, and Chris Evan, who plays Captain America. Feige said fans should definitely read into that and understand that Black Panther will be a big part of the upcoming third Captain America film which will be called Civil War. He may also appear in the upcoming Avengers 2 which hits theaters May 2015. Feige said that fans should look for “Easter egg” in the Age of Ultron trailer.

True indeed Princesa. Seeing Cap's shield in fragments made me think of Earth's Mightiest Heroes when they journeyed to Wakanda to get it repaired; that and seeing Klaw in the Age of Ultron teaser did in fact whet my appetite for the live action version of the Black Panther. Now let us be satiated by a very well done film.

You got that right Booshman. Time to tell Rutog that the Black Panther is reclaiming the title of HEF's  most talked about Afrakan (so called black) superhero/heroine.

Neither Ruckus98 nor Storm mean anything to me, and have just become increasingly irrelevant to my world. If Hudlin has any part in this movie, it'll make an already good day A PHENOMENAL ONE!

So in fact, T'Challa will make his movie debut in Captain America 3: Civil War

Quote
...In fact, that wasn't even close to all: Feige was joking about the subtitle for the "Captain America" movie, and confirmed that "Captain America 3" is actually "Captain America: Civil War."



Chadwick Boseman was confirmed as playing the Black Panther, and came onstage alongside Robert Downey Jr. and Chris Evans.

"I'm blessed to be a part of this Marvel Universe, to work with you both and to make magic together," Boseman said.

"Black Panther" is made official for Nov. 3, 2017 -- "T'Challa himself, and all of Wakanda" -- is coming to theaters on . "We have already started seeding things in the films leading up to this moment," Feige said, calling Black Panther one of the most exciting and integral Marvel characters. The film will be about the "isolationist nation" of Wakanda meeting the rest of the world, which may go well and may not.

Real talk! I would wish you could be available for the BP flick, Ture. You are the BP! Of course, I would add several others from the HEF. The true campaigners. You know who you are. Big-ups! Myself included.

I halted W.W.O. because it was way too ahead of the game & I didn’t want to sh*t-on these muthaf*ckaz! I tried to downplay my own story, just to give others a shot & not step on any toes. I did it out of respect.

I trusted the HW to pull it together. "Honorary Wakandan Status" is part of the reason why I joined. (I joined for BP/Ororo & the legacy RH brought to the characters) The Honoraries need to stand up. Yeh, I said it! Do I have to p.m. everybody? Cuz, I will!

Is there another place where honoraries exist? If this  film goes off without you, what would that say about you, Honorary Wakandans? Too much? I know! The truth only hurts the guilty.

I knew this was going to happen for T'challa. Glad I was right and even happier it didn't come up as some kind of spin-off of some Avengers movie where movie goers would have to be introduced to the character on one of those movie first. Iron Man, Captain America and Thor got to have their solo movies first, why couldn't T'challa? Great news. :)

This is DOOOOOPE.

Isn't the concept art a take off on Hudlin's Thrice Blessed Armor? It is waaayyyy doper than the plain black unadorned Panther habit, which I never liked that much. I loved Priest's midnight blue joint, but I always thought the go to look for BP would be a BLACK Priest era uniform with GOLD highlights.

But this Thrice Blessed joint is even better than that!

Excuse for me suddenly having to talk loud. That maniacal sobbing screeching in unmitigated, nonstop hate and agony? That's dem X-Offal hatas. HAHAHAHA

Btw. The arrival of TChalla's movie makes it almost 100% certain that Hickman will not only remove TChalla from Suckaville but bring him back BANGIN HARD like I said he would. S. to the I. with the dead on point prediction. Applause and kowtows, please. Gold coin and vibranium acceptable. Thank you.

If they let R to the H direct, then we know that BP's solo [ tirlogy? ] will be a monster hit. Half a billion plus. But. That's asking too much of God.

Those joints are cool but they're too close to Wolverine's claws for my taste...why not Energy Claws forged from the same stuff he makes his Energy Daggers from?

Respect to Panther0123 and Kimoyo for being the first to break the news of the upcoming Black Panther movie here at the HEF. When I was informed by my cousin of the Black Panther's movie, I just confirmed and starting posting.

How Many Movies Has Chadwick Boseman Signed On For With Marvel?

Quote
Marvel Studios shocked everyone today when they revealed that Chadwick Boseman will bring the Black Panther to the big screen first in Captain America: Civil War and then his own solo movie. The 42 star had been mentioned as being in the running by Latino-Review, but like Ezra Miller being cast as The Flash, the official announcement came pretty much out of nowhere! Deadline have now weiged in on the casting and already have the exclusive on Boseman's role in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. "I hear he’s signed a lucrative five-film deal that begins with 2016’s Captain America: Civil War continues through Marvel’s just-unveiled Phase 3 line-up." A five picture deal obviously means we'll be seeing a lot of the Black Panther in the Marvel Cinematic Universe then, and it would be very surprising if he doesn't make an appearance in a future Avengers movie and obviously a sequel to his own 2017 solo outing. That's not all they have details on though.

When Kevin Feige was asked whether Marvel will be targeting an African American director for Black Panther and a female helmer for Captain Marvel, he replied: "We’re looking for the best directors possible," but did acknowledge that producer/director Reginald Hudlin is one filmmaker with Marvel ties (he wrote Black Panther for a time, retelling his origin and marrying him off to Storm). "Reggie I’ve known for many years and is a great guy – I think I’m meeting him again shortly." Who do you guys think is the right choice to helm these movies?

I'm friends with a radio DJ who has a lil pull with one of the local theaters in my town. For the past three years for every superhero, Sci-fi movie that's come ot, we've got the opportunity usually at midnight on Thursday nights (or Early Friday morning) to catch all the biggest blockbusters within our circle of geeks. Usually around 20 peeps that all know each other; so having to worry about other rude viewers is nill.

I'm already expecting to see this movie.... Oh. Three times easily.

I was thinking that maybe Nicole Beharie could play Shuri. It'd be a reunion of sorts because she played alongside Chadwick in 42 as his wife/love interest.

Chadwick was my FIRST choice. For one I wanted a young actor. He is handsome suave and I was very impressed with him as Jackie Robinson were he was outstanding and he was very good as James Brown (whom I don't particularly care for). I love the trajectory of his career. Lupita would be a perfect Shuri. I hope Shuri is still around.

Lupita certainly doesn't seem physical enough to be Shuri. I would think that she definitely would need lotsa training to muscle up and have the physical presence of Shuri, much less Shuri's amazing physical skill, speed, agility, and her luscious curves.

If she can work it out like that? Yeah, Lupita would be perfect.

She'd also be a dope Catwoman. If she did the above work expected of Shuri

BETWEEN THE PANELS: THIS IS THE EDGE BLACK PANTHER WILL GIVE MARVEL'S MOVIES

BY JESSE SCHEDEEN

This month has been an embarrassment of riches for fans of Marvel Studios' films, what with the debut of the Avengers: Age of Ultron trailer and the announcement of the entire Phase 3 lineup. It seems there will soon be a Marvel movie for all types, including people who want a superhero film not starring a handsome, funny white guy.

Personally, I'm most intrigued by the focus on Black Panther at Marvel's conference. Not only are we getting a solo Black Panther movie in 2017, the character will also play a prominent role in Captain America: Civil War the year before. And we even learned that Chadwick Boseman will be playing the King of Wakanda. Part of this stems from my personal attachment to the character. But it's also interesting to see how much Black Panther's prominence hints at the scope and direction of Phase 3. More than Captain Marvel or Doctor Strange or the Inhumans, Black Panther should be at the core of Marvel's Hollywood storytelling over the next few years.

(http://oyster.ignimgs.com/wordpress/stg.ign.com/2014/10/Black-Panther-720x288.jpg)

The appeal of Black Panther is pretty simple. As much as some people like to reductively describe T'Challa as "Marvel's Batman," it's really not that far off. Sure, they share the same silhouette, but T'Challa is also the resident bad-ass among the Avengers. He's less about overt super-powers and more about fancy gadgets and insane levels of strategic planning. Panther also has an arrogant intelligence that always makes his interactions with fellow super-genius Topny Stark fun to read. I'm very eager to see how Boseman and Robert Downey, Jr. play off one another in these upcoming films.

Panther also has a knack for defeating villains who, by all rights, should be way above his pay grade. Case in point:

(http://oyster.ignimgs.com/wordpress/stg.ign.com/2014/10/thcipblackpanther.jpg)

Why, yes, that is Mephisto, Prince of Lies and Lord of Evil.

People seem to like Batman alright, so there's no harm in Marvel adding someone of that dark, mysterious, uber-cool archetype to their movies. Hey, if you can't get Wolverine, get the guy who was Wolverine-ing before Wolverine existed.

If that were all Black Panther had going for him, his movie would still probably do pretty well. However, there's a deeper importance to the character and what he can bring to Marvel's films. Part of that is simply that Marvel is finally hinging a solo superhero film on a black character. Certainly, characters like War Machine and The Falcon have risen to prominence in the last few years, but they've always been supporting players in another hero's movie. With the Blade franchise dormant and WB's Cyborg movie still years away, the superhero genre needs all the diversity it can get if these movies are to appeal to the broadest audience possible.

(http://oyster.ignimgs.com/wordpress/stg.ign.com/2014/10/black-panther-art-720x1107.jpg)

Panther's importance goes even deeper than that. The fact is that Black Panther isn't really a superhero at all. He may look the part, and he's contributed his fair share when it comes to defending the world from villains. But at the end of the day, he's not a hero. He's a king. T'Challa is the ruler of the world's most technologically advanced nation and the figurehead of a religious faith. He's charged with safeguarding a kingdom that has always remained staunchly isolationist as it safeguards a large supply of the world's rarest and most valuable metal known an vibranium.

This opens up an entirely new set of challenges and conflicts. He has responsibilities that go far beyond simply protecting his family or maintaining a secret identity. Millions of lives rest on his every decision. Of the Avengers introduced in these films so far, only Thor has any real inkling of the pressures a man like Black Panther faces.

There's a distinctly political element that comes into play with any Black Panther-centric story. As a king, he's basically a visiting foreign dignitary any time he steps foot on American soil. Any Avengers team-up risks sparking a massive international incident. That creates an internal tension you don't see with the other Avengers. Black Panther may see evil in the world - violence, racial disparity, corporate greed - but he can't just slap on his costume and go pummel that evil into submission. He has to take a smarter and more pragmatic approach to doing good. Meanwhile, he's constantly defending his country from opportunistic rivals who would like nothing better to exploit Wakanda's natural resources. Vibranium is the new oil.

(http://oyster.ignimgs.com/wordpress/stg.ign.com/2014/10/serkis-what-you-might-have-missed-in-the-new-avengers-trailer-is-potentially-huge-the-age-of-ultron-trailer-breakdown-hints-and-clues-are.jpeg)

This plays into the general story direction Marvel seems to be heading with Phase 3. It's very telling that Panther is making his cinematic debut in 2016's Captain America: Civil War rather than his own movie the following year. The Marvel movies are headed in a more political direction already. Captain America: The Winter Soldier dealt very directly with the notion of "freedom vs. tyranny." Whom does a hero like Captain America really serve? What should the role of a peacekeeping agency like S.H.I.E.L.D. be in world affairs? Meanwhile, the fallout of Avengers: Age of Ultron will bring up its own issues. What sort of accountability do superhumans have? Should the public trust the Avengers when they're basically walking weapons of mass destruction, one of whom is capable of creating indestructible robots who plot humanity's extinction? Maybe some government oversight is needed?

All of that will fuel into the Civil War movie. Marvel has already been very clear that this take on the Civil War storyline is less about secret identities and more about accountability and oversight. Iron Man will fall on one side of the conflict as he struggles to atone for his mistakes in Age of Ultron, while Captain America campaigns for liberty and personal freedoms. And then you add Black Panther into the mix. It's hard to say exactly where the character will fit into this dynamic, but his mere presence elevates the Civil War conflict from an American issue to an international one. If T'Challa steps in to support Captain America's faction, how does that affect Wakanda's relationship with the rest of the world? Does it give his secretive kingdom the sort of unwanted attention it's always avoided?

(http://oyster.ignimgs.com/wordpress/stg.ign.com/2014/10/tumblr_ndguzbBO411tf70vho2_1280-720x760.jpg)
Black Panther Civil War

Black Panther is an essential part of making these films more political and focused on a global scale rather than an American one. And that's a good thing. Superhero comics often have a problem with focusing on the bigger picture. They become so focused on the soap opera quality of the heroes' lives and the endless stream of crossovers and villains that they lose sight of what these heroes are fighting for in the first place. That's where the X-Men franchise went sour during the '90s. It's a problem many of Marvel and DC's big crossover comics face today. These stories have to be about more than one group of costumed super-people fighting another group.

Many have voiced the concern that the superhero movie genre will overextend itself and the bubble will burst. With Marvel Studios and WB both planning three films annually in the years ahead (to say nothing of competing efforts from Fox, Sony, etc.), the flow is definitely only going to increase. What's important is for Marvel and other companies to be as versatile as possible with these projects. Just this year, we've seen the political thriller superhero film, the quirky space fantasy superhero film, and the time-travel sci-fi superhero film. The superhero genre doesn't really have to be a genre at all. And by introducing Black Panther and making him a centerpiece of their Phase 3 plans, Marvel can really show viewers what their superhero universe can offer.  IGN Logo

I won't be surprised that T'chaka will make an appearance in A: AOU and possibly die which will lead to T'challa making his appearance in CA:CW. Hell he just may join Steve side because he is pissed that it is Tony fault regarding the Ultrons destroying parts of Wakanda.

My pick for T'Chaka:

([url]http://ionegiantmag.files.wordpress.com/2009/03/eamonn-walker3.jpg[/url])



Real talk? There are only 2 real contenders for T'Chaka, although I'm sure both of them will not be given the nod.

Those real contenders are:

MICHAEL JAI WHITE

(http://www.schlockmania.com/wp-content/uploads/2010/06/BB-03.jpg)

and WESLEY SNIPES

(http://d1oi7t5trwfj5d.cloudfront.net/76/c1/b678d07c4a83a71e9ba58b00787f/wesley-snipes-expendables-3.jpg)


But they won't get the nod.

Especially since Michael Jai White was almost God-created to play Luke Cage...whose name I'm surprised I haven't heard more of than I've heard of TChalla visavis movies are concerned.

(http://2.bp.blogspot.com/-J6bph2fyYAY/T-iyPFnLOyI/AAAAAAAAFJk/Zv-GHL-iI50/s1600/Michael+Jai+white+Luke+Cage.jpg)


And Wesley still is...

(http://cinemacomrapadura.com.br/imagens/2014/09/20140901-blade.jpg)



So Hollywood will prolly get someone like TAYE DIGGS, who people forget carried action in EQUILIBRIUM quite well...


(http://filmy.onlinetelka.webnoviny.sk/wp-content/uploads/2013/07/Christian-Bale-and-Taye-Diggs-in-Miramaxs-Equilibrium-2002-1.jpg)


and the much overlooked MORRIS CHESTNUT, who is a major heart throb to our WOC...

(http://31.media.tumblr.com/23b0ca3047004b1c63a6e63ec512cd23/tumblr_mvhnk59O6b1qe8nc8o1_1280.jpg)


Morris would probably be the front runner for LUKE CAGE [ even though he really shouldn't be; he should be a definite second to Michael Jai ] if Marvel brought him out soon, but they're not gonna do that so by the time they make that decision? Morris will be too old for the role.

You know who else would be a dark horse longshot but whose proven he can handle physical martial arts choreography well?

Yall remember this here movie?

Even though Namor has had overall the best lines in the NA series imo, Namor fans DO have LEGIT beef with how he's been portrayed. Atlantis gets tomped by Shuri then TChalla not only tricks him and keeps him away but then has Namor helpless and ready to be killed. The Illuminati had to save him.

But on the other hand? Remember all those:"...teaching Wakandas to wim..." and slick little Namor-bangs-Storm jokes after an druing AoA? Yeah the Big Guns here let me know about it, and I predicted that they would eat their words.

Um....what? How did T'challa trick Namor? If anything, Namor tricked T'challa because he covertly sent Thanos' army there, because Atlantis got stomped by a justice seeking Wakanda. Justice over something that Namor did on his own volition.

Which btw, is the truth, as even Brevoort came out and said that Namor was in control of his own actions. As the Phoenix (that was broken up in five pieces) just amplified already existing desires and feelings. Brevoort, who is the higher authority than any writer and who contradicted all the pathetic head-canons of Namor apologists that were calling it "mind-control".

And "yes", the second paragraph was a strawman, but it was just something that needed to be said. As I'm tired of seeing the same false talking points.

He didn't trick him though. He even told Namor before he went to meet with Shuri that she probably wouldn't listen to him. But Namor, being his usual dumb and smug self, didn't take T'challa to heart and ended up being salty afterwards.

Namor wasn't held captive there. Nor was T'challa complicit in Atlantis' destruction. Namor's own predictable hubris and lack of foresight in telling Atlantis to bolster their defenses during negotiation, is what lead to Atlantis' fall.

And for future use, if you need it. The Brevoort quote is here.

Quote
"The fires of the Phoenix have transformed them into the purest and most unrestrained versions of themselves. Their true, quintessential natures tend to come out as the Phoenix just burns away the need for civility or circumspection. Namor is just being himself with the dial turned up to 11. The same goes for Emma. On another day, in another situation, where she wasn't harboring the Phoenix, maybe she would have come clean to the other Phoenix Five and said, "Yeah -- I had a hand in this."

You all have been fooled by Namor. Namor is suppose to be a black dude. The great Atlantis & or Atlanteans is an ancient African mystic theology.

The story pre-dates Egyptian civilizations. Plato called Atlantis an Egyptian story.

The inhabitants aka MOORS, settled in various land masses such as North-East & South-West Africa (Amexem), North, South & Central America & also Mexico.

Noble Drew Ali (of The Moorish Science Temple) wrote about it in the early 1900s.

The Nam-Moors conquered Spain in 711 a.d. & were also called the ancient “mariners.” The Moors were the foremost builders of large oceanic ships & so on... Moors were synonymous with the ocean & Atlantis.

Point is- they us gave a Black Captain America, but Namoor is some white-dude?

yeah, yeah , I know he's one of the original comicbook characters... bruh, I'm sayin' tho'!

Buddha had wooly-hair (check the statues) & was baptized by the ancient Naga Tribe ( Naga for all you niggaz).

Andromeda was black. The King of Troy during the Trojan War ( in Greek mythology) had a brother that was the King of Ethiopia. If my brotha is black?

Even Adam ( & Eve) have been portrayed as white. The word Adam means “red-man.” Red, black & brown people have always existed in tropical regions, desserts & around the equator. Maybe, Adam was red like the image of Satan. Dayum!

Geez, images mean so much & Namoor/ Atlanteans/ Atlantis should reflect historical reference.

Yeezy was Black. Hands down. You're 100% right.

The question isn't who IS Black in the Bible...especially in the old Testament...the question is, who ISN'T Black in the Bible. Practically everyone was Black. And Black people predated the Bible by more nearly 150k years. That makes for some really laughable moments, like when various foolish mortals try to state that the Black race are the cursed descendants of Ham...when we predated the Book itself. Lol.

Buddha was Black. Prince Guatama was his name. Part of the ancient Hindu royalty. Dravidian Empires and whatnot. And Vedics, who themselves look like Aboriginal Australians. In other words? All dem heads were Black.

The entire continent of what we now miscall India was Black...probably from Prakrit speaking people. I still have a lot to learn in that area, my studies aren't complete, so I can't be rigorously certain about the "Prakrit speaking" part. But it's probably true, based on my current research.

http://tamilandvedas.com/2013/12/26/dravidians-are-invaders/ (http://tamilandvedas.com/2013/12/26/dravidians-are-invaders/)

In fact, the original kingdoms predated the Dravidians. There is some argument that the Dravidians are invaders [ I haven't completed my research here, so I don't have a fully formed opinion on this matter ] but it seems that even if they were? They were Black invaders scrappin with Black people. Despite later intense racist revisionism by racist revisionists, the Vedics are emphatically Black. All Vedic gods are Black, and I'm pretty certain that Sanskrit has its origins in so-called "Ethiopia".

Oh. Oftentimes, it is said in the subcontinent of "India" that the Vedic civilization is its oldest civilization. Therefore, their racial identity as being both Black and African is important, given the viciously intense racism and classism stratifying Hindustan most especially, but also reigning in Pakistan and Bangladesh.

Even now the Modern Dravidians...after more than a thousand years of race mixing...look like:

And the final dagger is the fact that Africans are Africans, whether we're in the Diaspora or not. We must take note and respect various historic and cultural differences, but our blood link and common plight supercedes all other concerns.

Although they try soooo hard to deny the existence of Black Asians; especially Black Asians from Africa who not only predate Orientals and Whites in Asia by millenia, but are the source of the most ancient great legendary civilizations of these areas which Orientals Whites and others by and large fall over themselves trying to lay claim to and remove from us.

I bet some White folks in the future will say they invented rap, hipop and jazz too. It's not preposterous, because every day I have to deal with White people who absolutely, passionately insist that they created Capoeira. I'm serious. They're so passionate about it, that they're repulsed and repelled that I--after showing such erudition in other matters--have the nerve to say that Kaapwera/Kipura/Mbundu ngolo Kipura/etc [ not "Capoeira", which is a Portuguese word ] clearly originated in "Africa" long before Brasil existed, and in fact? The "African War Dance of Death" was even recorded by the Romans as being used by Kandake [ Pharaoh Queen ] Amanirenas to defeat them in battle. More than 2000 years ago.

You all have been fooled by Namor. Namor is suppose to be a black dude. The great Atlantis & or Atlanteans is an ancient African mystic theology.

The story pre-dates Egyptian civilizations. Plato called Atlantis an Egyptian story.

The inhabitants aka MOORS, settled in various land masses such as North-East & South-West Africa (Amexem), North, South & Central America & also Mexico.

Noble Drew Ali (of The Moorish Science Temple) wrote about it in the early 1900s.

The Nam-Moors conquered Spain in 711 a.d. & were also called the ancient “mariners.” The Moors were the foremost builders of large oceanic ships & so on... Moors were synonymous with the ocean & Atlantis.

Point is- they us gave a Black Captain America, but Namoor is some white-dude?

yeah, yeah , I know he's one of the original comicbook characters... bruh, I'm sayin' tho'!


Well...they DID make Namor black in one of the alternate worlds. In Exiles #2. Where he was married to Sue Storm.

Sue Storm? Suspicious? Proves they know better.
Okay, so, would they be foes if Namor were black? Namor & Atlantis should be black -ALLIES? Too late? Of Course, we get Miles Morales & Caption America & an alternate version Black Namor.  Wouldn’t that make for an interesting dynamic for the up-coming flick?  Wouldn’t it be okay to claim more black characters & representation? It’s bigger than comics. They are monopolizing the image of black people, history & culture. We should be able to request literary integrity...

The BP movie... skeptical



Having a BP movie is the equivalent of The Obama Election in 2008. It's something that realistically none of us ever thought would happen, if RH didn't somehow make it happen. We want it to happen, but we knew better than to HOPE it would happen once RH was removed from scripting duties.

However right you are about the heroes of color..and you're right...there is no way that we will see a set of Black superheroes in the BP movie. Or anywhere else. Not if we don't control the process. That ain't happening. I would be stunned to see BP, Falcon and Nick Fury together onscreen acting like real G's. Without needing a single White hero to be in sight. And of course the superduper crack dream would be BP and Storm in the same movie together, bringing real heat.

TChalla. Storm. Blade. Luke Cage [ Michael Jai White ]. Falcon. TChaka. [ Chiwetel Ejiafor ]

Ramonda is Vivica Fox. Everybody remembers her fight scene in Kill Bill

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kgRlzeYc1nk (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kgRlzeYc1nk)

RH was the first to broach the idea of a Black Avengers. Realistically, it can and should be done. Maybe call them the 99%...representing in color range, scope, gender, sexuality, religion, philosophy, thought and deed the other 99% of us who are not in the top 1% that runs everything.

That's pretty dope. The 99%.

It wouldn't surprise me if they go for a more diverse casting.  I wouldn't be surprised if half the movie is in Wakanda and half is in Dallas or Toyko, like the Thor movies are half in Asgard and half on earth.

For this movie to be called a success and for them to make more it has to sell very well in Japan,  China and France.  So you know they are going to make it with that in mind.

That's just a provisional theory.

Counterfeit entertainment runs rampant in China regardless of movie location and Japan seems to enjoy American movies to not be concerned with location(s).  ...and France?  Let's just say that France and U.S.A. have a revolving appreciation/discontent relationship that hinges on what mood the citizens happen to be in at the time...   
...and timing is everything.
It would not be wise to lose the integrity of a Black Panther movie by shooting in those locations in order to theoretically generate more revenue from countries overseas.     

The Black Panther movie should be able to tell the very best story that it can and be judged on its own merit without any of the frills.

I wasn't saying France as a specific but just to round out the world.   My point is the international market is important.   It is so important that in the Red Dawn remake they digitally turned China into North Korea so they don't risk offending the Chinese market.  And I don't mean something in BP will offend the Chinese, I mean they want to make a lot of money of the Chinese.  (And Marvel won't get any money from pirated material so that market doesn't interest them. )

And that is my point. .. They want to sell this to the widest audience possible.   If they think a diverse cast will help that or showing up in Dallas will mean more money,  then that is what they will do.

I know exactly what you are saying, however, there are many, many, many, many other factors that can determine the success or failure of American movies that carry more weight. Like, seasons and release dates... for example. There's also the possibility of an unfortunate event that could hinder the movie's development, as well. 

It's speculative at this point to make such a arbitrary decision this early in the process when there hasn't been a single piece of footage shot in principal photography yet other than that fan-made test-reel posted here at HEF few months ago...   ...and I pray to God/Allah/Shiva/Buddah whomever would hear me that the Black Panther movie doesn't use that syle of cinematography.

If I was Jill? I still wouldn't know Jack about location. So. I'm staying out of it.

Wherever it is? I trust that Marvel cares enough aobut making money off of ALL of its products that they will give BP a max go and do what they think will make them max money. We are likely not to be even 90% pleased with what they decide overall, so I'm hoping to be practical and "settle" for 80%.

The big test is BP's first appearance in Civil War. That's the big test. How does he do when he's faced off with Captain America, Thor, Widow, Hulk, Iron Man, Hawkeye, Falcon, Fury? Civil War SHOULD include Spider Man, F4, and the [ new ] Daredevil too, if at all possible. Would like to see Elektra as well...we need women...and the X-Men too. But all that is a crack dream that not even crack heads would have, in all likelihood. For all kinds of legal reasons, I'm pretty sure--and I'm sure the various illustrious members of HEF are better informed than I am regarding this subject matter--that the X-Men won't be in the same story as The Avengers are. Yet.

But AvX in the box office? Monster hit. Monster. Wouldn't be surprised if it gets within distant sight of Cameron's Titanic in sales. Say...top twelve all time?

On a tangent now. Hope AVATAR 2 is even better than AVATAR 1...

Back to our costumed heroes.

I actually do think they'll mix locales for Wakanda. Africa, Australia, Canada...wherever they can film amazing lush wildscapes for cheap...they'll do that. Like LORD OF THE RINGS. Mix it with specfx like AVATAR. Idk what their vision of Wakanda is, but if the ygo the ubertech route...which they shold...expect maybe a blend of AVATAR and TRON futuristic tech and wonders of nature cheek by jowl, maybe? It's very exciting to contemplate.

I would love to be a small part of this production, but I know better to HOPE so. I am definitely going to support it in the movies. And I really hope my friend Lateef gets stuntwork in BP. I mean..."Capoeira" is tailor made for BP.

Two worth reading articles about the upcoming Black Panther Movie.

Marvel's 'Black Panther' Isn't Just Another Black Superhero

November 16, 2014 5:44 AM ET
CHARLES PULLIAM-MOORE
NPR

Last month Marvel Studios announced the roster for some upcoming features. In addition to Ant-Man and a female-led Captain Marvel film, Marvel's Kevin Feige confirmed that on November 3, 2017, the studio planned to release one of its longest-rumored projects: The Black Panther. We in the nerdier parts of the Internet promptly lost our minds.

In issue #52 of the Fantastic Four, Reed Richards receives a cryptic message from the Black Panther. The message is an invitation, offering the team a chance to visit Wakanda, his secluded home country hidden away in the jungles of east Africa. After the Foursome proves their worthiness in a fight, the Panther counts them amongst his allies and asks for their assistance in defeating the nefarious Ulysses Klaw. In time, the Black Panther would come to join the Fantastic Four and other American heroes like the Avengers and the X-Men on a number of their adventures.

Created by Jack Kirby and Stan Lee in 1966, the Black Panther was a first for mainstream American comics. Unlike the few black comic book characters that preceded him, T'Challa (the Black Panther) was a bona fide superhero with powers, plot lines, and an origin story that permanently expanded and altered Marvel's comic book universe.

It'd be easy to chalk up Marvel nerds' excitement about the movie to the fact that the Black Panther, as his name suggests, is black. That's only part of it, though. In fact the Black Panther is the latest in a long line of black superheroes Marvel has brought to the big screen.

Wesley Snipes portrayed Blade in 1998 and later in the film's two sequels. Halle Berry has reprised her role as Storm in every X-Men film since 2000. Depending on which of the Iron Man films you're watching, either Terrence Howard or Don Cheadle is moonlighting as War Machine. Most recently, Anthony Mackie played sidekick to Captain America as the Falcon.

The thing that makes the Black Panther exciting isn't really his race, it's where he's from – the great nation of Wakanda.A secretive and isolationist country, Wakanda possesses the world's largest deposit of vibranium, a vibration-absorbing metal that is exceedingly valuable for its technological applications. (It's also the substance that composes Captain America's shield.)

Wary of conflict and foreign exploitation, Wakanda shut out the rest of the world, choosing instead to become a largely self-sustaining society. Through Wakanda, Marvel toyed with and subverted stereotypical depictions of Africa as "wild" or "exotic." Instead, Wakanda was a futuristic African nation that had never been conquered or touched by colonialism.

Depictions of Wakanda have varied over the years, but the country is consistently described as a technological mecca built on a foundation of magic and metal. Disease and poverty are eclipsed by scientific innovation and economic prosperity. Put simply, Wakanda is the perfect example of Afrofuturistic science fiction.

In his 1994 essay "Black To The Future," Mark Dery first coined the term "Afrofuturism." As a style, the term refers to art that explores the experiences of black people through science fiction. Dery describes it as a way of remixing reality. An Afrofuturist reading of the transatlantic slave trade becomes an epic tragedy about alien abductees. Truth: Red, White, and Black reimagines the Tuskegee Experiments as tests for the same supersoldier serum that created Captain America.

Artists like Octavia Butler, Sun-Ra, and George Clinton all incorporated Afrofuturist themes into their writing and music. Their stories of alien peoples and interstellar travel paved the way for contemporary artists like Outkast and Janelle Monae. Almost every one of Monae's songs tells the story of Cindi Mayweather, a time-traveling android on a mission to liberate her people. The cyborgs in her music videos not only have black faces, but also a recognizably black relationship to a society that views them as soulless automatons.

As a subgenre of science fiction, Afrofuturism has never enjoyed the same kind of widespread popularity as steam- or cyberpunk. In 1976, Richard Pryor famously riffed on Logan's Run, a dystopian vision of the future, that was conspicuously devoid of black faces. That absence in mainstream sci-fi, according to comic book historian Adilifu Nama, is due mainly to the cultural implications of seeing black faces in fantasy worlds.

"Afrofuturism creates a space in which blackness is equated with futurism, cybernetics and super-science," he explained. "All of these ideas undermine the trope of the urban, or the subservient, or the criminal."

Science fiction often envisions worlds where race and ethnicity have given way to one dystopian threat or another. Seeing black people in space, fighting robots and saving the world can break that fantasy for audiences.

"Blackness in sci-fi is political," Nama continued. "Rather than challenge the audience it's just easier to not depict."

And that same challenge to the audience is what makes a Black Panther film something worth getting excited about.

Unlike the fantasyscapes seen in Guardians of the Galaxy, Wakanda is grounded within a familiar, if slightly fictionalized, world. Africa (being, you know, an actual continent) fits neatly into Marvel's ever-expanding universe, and that's a big deal. We're still three years out from it, but the promise of seeing Chadwick Boseman as the sworn protector of Wakanda is cause for cautious anticipation.

Not only could Black Panther stay true to its sci-fi narrative roots, but with the full power of the Marvel hype machine, it could easily become the first truly mainstream Afrofuturist film.


Chadwick Boseman Talks About Upcoming Role as Black Panther
November 16, 2014 | Shay Mathews

Marvel announced plans for future movie releases, among them a confirmation that the studio would produce a Black Panther solo film—and a reveal: they have already found the actor who will portray the formidable superhero in Chadwick Boseman.

During an interview with ABC News, Marvel exec Tom Brevoort emphasized the importance of the Marvel character. He said, "The Black Panther, he was the first superhero of color in 1966. At the time, it was still considered daring. He is the latest in a long line of Black Panthers. His father was a Black Panther before him and his father before him, and so forth."

As the leader of the fictional African nation of Wakanda, which is "more technologically advanced and wealthier than any other nation on Earth," the Panther has a great deal of responsibility, and he handles it well. "[He is] a learned man, a scientist, a world traveler, a man of culture, a man of great dignity and respect," added Brevoort.

Boseman portrayed legendary baseball player Jackie Robinson in 42 and the "Godfather of Soul" (James Brown) in Get On Up, proving he is more than capable of taking on iconic roles. But he recently admitted to CBR News that he was surprised by the fan response to Marvel's announcement. "The reaction on stage at the El Capitan Theater was, like, amazing," Boseman said. "Just to be there—the way that Marvel set it up and wanted to surprise people with it—it was one of the best surprises that I've ever been a part of. I've heard from a lot of my friends, and a lot of people I didn't know have congratulated me. I tried to get away from everything just to ground myself. But it's been amazing. I'm so excited! I'm ready to start right now, and they're telling me: 'Slow down a little bit!'"

Boseman is keenly aware of the magnitude of the opportunity. "It's never been done. It's been done before in different ways, but it's never been done exactly like this," he said. "Wesley Snipes also had his own franchise–you have to acknowledge that. You have to acknowledge what [Anthony] Mackie's doing [with the Falcon]. But this is a little different in the way that Marvel is presenting it, so it's amazing."

The studio plans to keep the actor around for awhile. Deadline reports that Boseman has signed a five-film deal that kicks off with 2016's Captain America: Civil War—before the Black Panther stand-alone film debuts in 2017.

For this movie to be called a success and for them to make more it has to sell very well in Japan,  China and France.  So you know they are going to make it with that in mind.




That's just a provisional theory.

Counterfeit entertainment runs rampant in China regardless of movie location and Japan seems to enjoy American movies to not be concerned with location(s).  ...and France?  Let's just say that France and U.S.A. have a revolving appreciation/discontent relationship that hinges on what mood the citizens happen to be in at the time...   
...and timing is everything.
It would not be wise to lose the integrity of a Black Panther movie by shooting in those locations in order to theoretically generate more revenue from countries overseas.     

The Black Panther movie should be able to tell the very best story that it can and be judged on its own merit without any of the frills.



depends on your definition of "frills"... yeh, story should be the very best...

still not feelin' the suit! should have more abilities than iron man- doubt it. anyway, BP is royalty. the panther suit should reflect...

I agree that the Panther suit should reflect royalty, but I think the suits he rocked under Priest and some of Hudlin's suits were just fine. I don't particularly care for the old skool not quite matte black Panther habit. I would like a space black Panther habit with Priest era gold highlights, Light Armor, Thrice Blessed, etc.

I think really that TChalla should rock a techno-ka-psi-magic habit, like he does in my fanfics. That way, he's covered to a very significant degree no matter what goes down

Interesting take on the panther suit, Supreme Illuminati. Any examples or references? What you’re describing reminds me of  “Cutler”-- (a character) from the Disney XD animated series Tron: Uprising

As far as costume design for the Black Panther is concerned, I think Marvel is going in the right direction with this.

(https://fbcdn-sphotos-b-a.akamaihd.net/hphotos-ak-xpf1/t31.0-8/1039561_10153234345913496_7781504250154244497_o.jpg?dl=1)

It's texture and patterning gives it a nuance that lends itself to a kind of vibranium effect I would like to see in a live action film. This would be the very definition of vibranium micro weave. Super powered punches, bullets, any kind of blunt force, explosions, falls from great heights can be seen as being absorbed by the suit. Throw in a sophisticated cloaking device and morphing ability and the Black Panther's habit becomes clearly distinguishable from any other super hero's costume, especially Batman's.

No ropes or cables, he can simply run up buildings. The Black Panther can set the precedence since a particular wall crawler is yet to reside in the MCU. He can even walk or run on the surface of water. Sans the utility belt. No hand held communicator. The vibranium necklace, forearm and waist attachments provide the high tech power and means for communication, control of equipment, vehicles and adaptability to multiple environs. Yes, the Black Panther's uniform provides for extended stays under water, frozen wastelands and other hostile environments.

Will Film's Black Superheroes Ever Get to Save the World?
In movies, whites protect all of humanity; blacks usually protect their neighborhoods.

DANIEL D. SNYDER NOV 24 2014, 10:17 AM ET

(http://cdn.theatlantic.com/static/newsroom/img/mt/2014/11/Black_Panther/lead.jpg?nfjxmw)

This month, an elderly Steve Rogers relinquished his role as Captain America, a position he held in one capacity or another for some 73 years. Taking up the mantle in his stead is the young black hero Sam Wilson, formerly known as Falcon. In a recent interview with Vox, Captain America comic-book writer Rick Remeder spoke about the significance of transitioning from Steve to Sam in a Marvel universe that’s becoming more and more diverse.

"Sam's wearing the American flag," Remeder said. "That means he represents all of America. And not just that, but the spirit of the character is that he tries to represent all of the world."

Remeder's remarks came after news of Marvel Studios' plan to produce a movie based on Black Panther, the first major black superhero to show up in Marvel's pages, back in 1966. Currently scheduled for 2017, it will be the first superhero film to feature a black lead since Wesley Snipes hung up his vampire-skewering samurai sword and sunglasses in Blade.

What remains to be seen, however, is whether Remeder's philosophy regarding a black superhero's role as a universal representative will carry over into film. Traditionally, movies have done a curious thing with black heroes: Charge them not with saving the world, but rather with protecting their immediate, ethno-specific domains, or, in many cases, to put it bluntly, the ghetto.

The 1977 blaxploitation film Abar, the Black Superman, may be of questionable filmmaking merit, but is essential in defining the tone of black-superhero movies to come. In it, an affluent black doctor and his family move into a white neighborhood, prompting anger, protests, and even threats of violence. A local black leader, Abar, steps into help protect the Kincaids and is able to do so until extreme circumstances force him to take a serum of Dr. Kincaid's creation, granting him invincibility and psychic powers. Abar then goes on a quest to vanquish racism and the machinery of oppression. It’s an (amusing, absurd) empowerment fantasy, but it’s also a limited one—about the men and women next door, not mankind itself.

Black superheroes remained absent from the screen until The Meteor Man and Blankman appeared in 1993 and 1994, respectively. They picked up where Abar left off: "He's come to save the world… one neighborhood at a time," says the trailer for Meteor Man. The 1993 superhero spoof stars Robert Townsend as Jefferson Reed, a Washington, D.C. school teacher who, after receiving some vaguely Superman-esque powers from a falling meteor, resolves to save his neighborhood from a marauding street gang called The Golden Lords. Reed makes short work of the rascally Lords, then sets about shutting down drug dealers, stopping robberies, and brokering a peace treaty between the police, the Crips, and the Bloods (played by Cyprus Hill and Naughty by Nature, respectively). When Reed begins to lose his powers and the Lords return, it's the neighborhood's own residents, now imbued with Reed's courage, who end up saving the day.

Blankman, written by and starring Damon Wayans, is not all that dissimilar. Wayans plays Darryl, an eccentric and nerdy inventor with an undying love of Batman. He uses his skills to turn himself into the movie's incompetent titular hero. Armored in bulletproof long johns and dishwashing gloves, Darryl ventures out to fight crime and save his deteriorating community.

While there is certainly value and meaning behind Meteor Man and Blankman, they are, at their core, spoofs that derived a good deal of their humor from the implied absurdity of a black man in a cape and cowl in a world where white heroes have are the dominant figure of authority. Like Abar, both of these are defined by place and territory, specifically black territory.

The trope returned a few years later, when NBA star Shaq starred in the critically and commercially repellent comic-book adaptation Steel. Directly inspired by the black folk-hero John Henry, Steel begins life as John Henry Irons, a weapons engineer who must protect his home and family after his own deadly creations end up on the streets of his community.

There is obviously nothing wrong with the messages behind these films—that real heroes come from and protect specific places. But taken together, over time, they contribute to the stagnant idea of what a black hero can be to the world. Even when moving outside of the neighborhood-watch paradigm, black heroes still aren't granted the mantle of universal protector bestowed on their counterparts. Spawn (1997) and Catwoman (2004), the latter widely regarded as one of the worst movies ever made, both feature black leads (at least before Spawn's Al Simmons gets turned into cooked burger meat) but their narratives are tied to tales of personal revenge, where any worldly do-gooding is merely incidental.

Even Blade, perhaps the pinnacle of black superhero movies in terms of sheer quality, is characterized by a distinctly urban quality. While his contemporaries soar into cosmic vistas, Snipes's Blade is confined to streets, alleyways, and subway tunnels. The film plays like a strange vampiric tribute to the blaxploitation films of the ‘70s, with vampirism as the poison of the streets. While later movies would make vampirism into an enviable condition of inherent beauty, Blade treats it as a condition akin to a disease or drug addiction. Blade's mother is bitten when he is in the womb, killing her (so he believes) and cursing him with his own addiction as if he’s a vampiric crack baby. His story, like his predecessors, becomes one of personal vengeance against the purveyors of the disease that ruined him.

The most interesting take on black superheroes may actually be 2008's Hancock with Will Smith. In it, Smith plays the titular Hancock, a drunken wreck blessed with super strength, invulnerability, and flight. Though he often attempts to use his powers for good, he remains under constant scrutiny from the public for the collateral damage he causes. The movie spent years in development limbo, undergoing numerous re-writes, and it shows, particularly in its second half when the plot goes incoherent. But the premise, a black hero undergoing an image rehabilitation campaign, remains a clever skewering of the media and the public's relationship with black figures of power. "Life here can be difficult for me," he says during an apologetic press conference. "After all, I'm the only one of my kind. You deserve better from me. I will be better." When was Superman made to apologize for excessive property damage? Or had his origins so publicly scrutinized?

Can Black Panther be a revolutionary step forward for black heroes, or will it succumb to the same narrative tropes as its cinematic predecessors? Stan Lee and Jack Kirby wrote the character as the protector of an ethno-specific domain, the fictional isolated African nation of Wakanda, a nation of high culture and technology but a history of conflict with the outside world, specifically white colonialists looking to exploit its resources. The Black Panther of the print universe had decades to move beyond this narrative, eventually being named official protector of Hell's Kitchen in New York. But if Marvel is intent on starting with his origin story, as it seem inclined to be, his status as a protector of what is essentially an auto-segregated enclave will feature prominently. By contrast, other heroes like Batman or Aquaman have had their characters defined by places like Gotham City or the undersea kingdom of Atlantis, but these definitions are not based in race. Gotham mostly exists as a self-contained universe, of which Batman is an all-encompassing protector.

If Black Panther doesn’t break the pattern, Warner Brothers’ Cyborg movie, currently slated for 2020, might. Created in 1980 by Marv Wolfman and George Pérez, Cyborg (alias: Victor Stone), the son of two scientists who used him for experiments, was never so defined by a locality or ethnicity. Under DC's New 52 continuity reboot, Cyborg will share global responsibility with the likes of Batman, Wonder Woman, and Superman—protectors of all Earth. How novel

These are good points bruh but...didn't BLADE save the world 3 times?

once vs The Blood God

The second vs The Reavers who would massacre every single human as they also sought to devour The Reavers

And once vs Drake/Dracula, who was going to turn the rest of the vampires into Daywalkers by granting them some of the powers of his blood

However.

The Black Panther Villains we CRAVE!

Cinematically speaking I see three major villains for the Black Panther. First Klaw who without a doubt should be a primary villain for the Black Panther solo film. He starts off human as possibly seen in Avengers Age of Ultron then gets transformed into a being of pure sonic energy. If Andy Serkis is in deed portraying Klaw, it would be a missed opportunity not to have him do a performance captured interpretation of a being made of pure sound.

In addition Klaw must be made into a global threat. The kind of threat that can destroy whole cities, the kind of threat that could send civilization back to the stone age. The kind of threat that warrants the attention of the Avengers. This way you get the Black Panther traveling the world (as some may think a Wakandan centered film too limiting) using unique vehicles, technologies and weapon that distinguish him in regards to both Marvel's and DC's respective cinematic universes. Klaw could be a fail safe or contingency plan of Ultron's or a part of some other groups machinations. 

The second cinematic villain for the Black Panther should in fact be Namor, the Sub Mariner. Again a global threat. For millenniums Wakanda and Atlantis have had a tense relationship as they represented diametrically opposed worldviews based on historical and ideological differences of land versus oceans rights.Circumstances come to a head that bring these two ancient civilizations  to the brink of war.

Marvel would go grand in scope depicting a kind of undersea Star Wars. Demonstrate the Black Panther's costume as having the built in capabilities for under water survival. Display Wakanda with the tech to shield whole cities from inundation. Showcase Namor with the tech to sink whole continents, present the awesome majesty and beauty, not to mention the power of these two great civilizations.

Around this time last year I compiled this list of the Black Panther's villains.

Black Panther's original Sinister Six

Salamander K'ruel
King Cadaver
Sombre
Malice
Baron Macabre
Lord Karnaj

The Supremacists

Barricade,
Captain Blaze,
Harrier,
Hungyr,
Voortrekker
White Avenger


The Femme Fatale Six

Malice
Tanzika
Madame Slay
Nakia
Nightshade
Princess Zanda

The Consortium

Kingpin
V'lad
Anton Pretorius (South African Magistrate of Communications)
John T. Gamelin (president of Roxxon Oil) 
Jonathon Cardinal (owner of Cardinal Technologies)
Hunter the White Wolf


The Revisionist

Killmonger
M"baku
Solomon Prey
Moses Magnum
Achebe
Apocalypse

The Destroyers

Doom
Red Skull
Namor
Mandarin
Klaw
Black Swan

The Conquerors

Thanos
Mephisto
Nightmare
Loki
Shadow King
Black Dragon

With all necessary modifications the Consortium and the Supremacists would be my third choice for Black Panther's cinematic villains. They were the hidden hand manipulating events such as the Super Hero Registration Act, the Ultron Imperative, the creation of Klaw and the war between Wakanda and Atlantis.

As Captain America the Winter Soldier demonstrated characters like Cap and the Black Panther work best within the context of complex, political intrigue. Who better than some hidden hand, an Illuminati like, new world order type of international organization that has their sites set on the Black Panther.

This cabal would be the one's responsible for the death of T'Chaka and the framing of the Atlantean king for the murder. They are the one's responsible for polluting the oceans with waste infused with an carcinogenic deadly to water breathers. Thus the cessation to the hostilities between Wakanda and Atlantis occur when Tchalla offers up the cure for this unique cancer.

There are ample opportunities to give speaking parts to N'Jadka the Killmonger and M'Baku high priest of the Jabari at council and war meetings as they represent their respective nomes. Cameos of Achebe and Hunter the White Wolf can also be made possible.

New ‘Avengers: Age of Ultron’ Promo Art Reveals The Vision

(http://cdn.screenrant.com/wp-content/uploads/Avengers-2-Age-of-Ultron-Promo-Art-570x854.jpg)

Quote
While fans may be still geekgasming over the big events announced for Marvel’s Phase Three lineup, we still have to close out Phase Two with one more new superhero origin (Ant-Man) and another big teamup event film in the form of The Avengers: Age of Ultron.

While the Avengers 2 trailer gave fans plenty of hints about what’s to come of Ultron’s (James Spader) attempt to bring peace to Earth by way of eradication, the sequel still seems to have plenty of secrets stashed under its cape and cowl – with additional villains (Andy Serkis as Ulysses Klaw?) and heroes still waiting to step into the spotlight. And none is more anticipated than a character who will be both hero and villain: The Vision.


Regarding the bolden... perhaps something related to the death of T'Chaka and a view of Tchalla  without the Black Panther costume.

Chadwick Boseman Talks About His Excitement For BLACK PANTHER

It's going to be 2 long years before we see Chadwick Boseman suit up as the Black Panther in Captain America: Civil War.. or will it? Boseman says a little something that might suggest he may show up in the MCU earlier than expected. Come check it out!

By KingPatel - 12/3/2014

(http://i.imgur.com/6JN0uQV.jpg)

As part of Variety's Actors on Actors feature, Logan Lerman (Percy Jackson) sat down with the future Black Panther, Chadwick Boseman, for a few minutes to discuss the role. Boseman is expected to make his debut in 2016's Captain America: Civil War, and will star in his own solo film in 2017. While plot details about his solo adventure are still scarce, Boseman does seem genuinely excited to be the one to bring T'Challa to life and describes the Black Panther as one of the most unique characters he's ever played.

He also lets it slip that "there's a director on the movies that he's introduced." We already know that the Russo brothers are returning to helm Civil War, but when he says "movies," could he be alluding to Joss Whedon and next year's Avengers: Age of Ultron as his first true introduction?

Check out the full video interview below and sound off with your thoughts in the usual spot!

http://youtu.be/n9Z61O3fU3Q (http://youtu.be/n9Z61O3fU3Q)

As part of his presentation of the full slate for Phase 3 of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige has announced that Chadwick Boseman will bring the Black Panther to life beginning with his role in Marvel’s “Captain America: Civil War,” in theaters May 6, 2016, before starring in his own solo film, Marvel's "Black Panther," on November 3, 2017.

If he could rock a cold African accent? You know what...? He could be TChalla.


Not that I'm mad at Chadwick Boseman, but...we could have gotten a real Afrikan to rock the role of BLACK PANTHER, ya know?

And that's not even saying anything about the staggering heroism of real life heroes living right this very second and fighting this very second in Afrika.

Good find with Gun Hill. I think I'll check it out this weekend. While Chadwick Boseman was not my first choice for Black Panther he does come off fresh and serious acting wise and appears to appreciates diverse characters choices; a quality I think all good actors should posses. I have and never will see Larenz Tate as Tchalla. He will remain Darius Lovehall. ;D

While I think I take your meaning supreme illuminati, unless you are suggesting that genetically he is not Afrakan i.e. he is bi-racial; notwithstanding Chadwick Boseman is a real Afrakan. We are no less authentic being born off the mother continent. Afrakan people were a global people at a time when no other people (so called racial types) existed.

The Kushau of ancient Keneset and Kemet (two of the Hapi valley civilizations in Afraka) traveled to the continent they named Amaruka and and maintained the same traditions o f civilization (communion with the Neteru/Neteretu, building of Meru and Tekenu etc.) as their people and families did in Afraka. The Xiu as they became known over the centuries still maintained contact with the Kushau, still considered themselves the same people. Were there some differences? Of course but nothing that signified a disconnect from their natal origin.

In more recent times due to the all out war on Afrakans through colonization, religious conversion, captivity and enslavement; defining oneself through nationality and citizenship has become very confusing. This is why using terms like American Afrakan, Jamaican Afrakan, British Afrakan, Canadian Afrakan, Nigerian Afrakan, Kenyan Afrakan, Sudanese Afrakan etc. may be useful in defining ethnic and regional distinctions without severing us from one another, our ideology or place of origin .

I actually agree with every syllable that you wrote above in this terrific response, Brother Ture, regarding the fact that AFrakan people are ONE people. To me, however, that is exactly why we should see more continental Afrakans reflecting roles starring and/or centered upon continental Afrakans. We simply don't see that enough, and given the preeminence of a character like TChalla? I think we should definitely see a continental Afrakan portraying him the same way we should see a Afrakan of American origin play BLADE. Embrace our unity and diversity at the same time. And correct he underrepresentation of continental Afrakans in Hollywood.

I see no problem in shuffling our "diversity." A continental or diasporac Afrakan can play Tchalla just as long as they are Afrakan, the same logic applies to the portrayal of Blade, Cage, Falcon, Vixen, Misty etc. Defining who is Afrakan would take in a whole 'nother direction. I avoided mentioning the weather goddess for just that reason, though personally I think it applies to her as well. Suffice it to say I think we understand one another.

Using their given terms for nationality you have Djimon Hounsou from Benin, Fana Mokoena of South Africa,  Peter Mensah of Ghana and Edi Gathegi hails from Kenyan. Combine them with Idrissa Akuna "Idris" Elba, Adewalle Akinnuoye-Agbaje and Chiwetelu Ejiofor all of whom are British. Throw in Americans Wesley Snipes, Gbenga Akinnagbe, Tishuan Scott, Michael Kenneth Williams, Don Cheadle and Jamie Hector and you have one indistinguishable mix of Wakandans. Curious to note that all these actors work in Hollywood.

For your Dora Milaje I present Americans Danai Gurira, Asia Hinds, Rutina Wesley, Adina Porter and Whoopi Goldberg who seamlessly meld with Ini Edo (Nigerian), Stephanie Okereke (Nigerian), Omotola Jalade (Nigerian), Yvonne Okoro (Ghana) and Jackline Appiah (Canadian). You see it all works.

Our continental Afrakans are making movies and have their own film industries; that's something us American Afrakans should take note of. There is Kenya Cinema, the ill named Nollywood and Ghallywood representing Nigeria and Ghana respectively to name a few of the top of my head. Thankfully there are some American Afrakans with their own studios, production and casting companies.

Our under representation in Hollywood is endemic of the fact that some would rather work for others rather than build for self. I know its difficult to do such when one doesn't have an adequate definition of self; however developing a global Afrakan film industry would be a excellent way to embrace our unity and diversity.

MARVEL STUDIOS AND SONY TO SHARE SPIDER-MAN IN NEW COLLABORATIVE DEAL
http://www.comicbookresources.com/?page=article&id=59174 (http://www.comicbookresources.com/?page=article&id=59174)

I don't know.... Spider-sense starting to tingle.

Marvel Announces New Release Dates For BLACK PANTHER, CAPTAIN MARVEL, More

Four future installments in the Marvel Cinematic Universe have received new release dates through 2019, including Thor’s next solo adventure as well as the first films for Black Panther, Captain Marvel and the Inhumans! Marvel’s “Thor: Ragnarok” will hit theaters November 3, 2017. The following year, Marvel’s “Black Panther” will make its way to theaters on July 6, 2018, and Marvel’s “Captain Marvel” on November 2, 2018. Finally, Marvel’s “Inhumans” will now debut in theaters July 12, 2019.
 
The previously announced dates for Marvel’s “Avengers: Infinity War Part 1” and “Avengers: Infinity War Part 2” on May 4, 2018 and May 3, 2019, respectively, remain unchanged. So, just how major are these changes? Well, the new Spider-Man movie obviously has Thor: Ragnarok's original release date, so the threequel has been moved to November 3rd, 2017 instead. That was when Black Panther was originally set to be released, and that movie has taken Captain Marvel's spot which in turn has taken the Inhumans' original slot. Confusing, eh? As a result, the latter has a totally new release date AFTER the second part of Avengers: Infinity War.

Marvel made 300 Million with Starlord, Rocket Racoon and Groot.

Sony somehow managed to lose money with Spider Man.

Marvel doesn't need Spidey to make money. They could have played hardball with Sony.

As it is, Andrew Garfield is going to probably lose the Spider Man role, thru no fault of his own.

He and Emma Stone, are the only things in the last set of films that work.

There is talk among some fans on some boards  thinking that Monica Lynne will be in the movie as a love interest.  I hope so and hope they re-invent her back to her activist and journalist days.  This makes sense and would help on various levels:

Monica would be a connection to America and American issues, especially african American issues...which she has always been outspoken about.  Peeps want T'Challa with a black woman?  Don't get much blacker than Monica

Storm is gone.  Done.  Finished.  A Dora Milaje or Wakandan woman wouldn't be as relatable to movie goers as an American black woman who can represent something they immediately understand and black American women would love to have a normal black woman they can relate to and represent them being loved by a king

Ala Don mcgregor, great drama can be placed into the movie with an American black woman fighting to be accepted by a xenophobic culture she is outside of, and Panther having tension with his subjects over courting such a woman.  There would be controversy over this in America as well...

There love was once beautiful, dramatic, and encompassed all types of black politics.  Plus Monica has that "sista girl" vibe that brings some flavor to T'challa and his world as Panther is far more regal and upstanding.  Monica would bring the real.  Kinda how Lois Lane brings it to Superman.

Avengers: Age of Ultron': What you want to know – and what you DON'T from Entertainment Weekly. Here is the link. http://www.ew.com/article/2015/04/10/%E2%80%98avengers-age-ultron%E2%80%99-what-you-want-know-%E2%80%93-and-what-you-don%E2%80%99t (http://www.ew.com/article/2015/04/10/%E2%80%98avengers-age-ultron%E2%80%99-what-you-want-know-%E2%80%93-and-what-you-don%E2%80%99t)

But what you really want to know is this...

Quote
There is a Black Panther tease, but no Black Panther. Age of Ultron does reference Wakanda, the fictional African country of the Panther, who will be played by Chadwick Boseman in Captain America: Civil War next May as well as his own stand-alone movie in 2018. Wakanda is a technologically advance country because it is one of the few places on Earth to find Vibranium, the powerful metal used to make Captain America’s shield. As you can imagine, a mechanical monstrosity like Ultron would love a body made out of this substance. That leads him to cross paths with a character known as Black Panther’s most insidious foe, Ulysses Klaue (played by Andy Serkis), who in Age of Ultron is an arms smuggler who has his hands on some of that precious Vibranium. And about those hands …

Fans of the comics know Klaue (later Klaw) is an amputee who attaches a sonic emitter to one wrist as a prosthetic. This weapon allows him to craft objects out of mere sound. We don’t see that device in Age of Ultron, but it’s good to go in expecting a partial origin story for Klaue. Let’s just say he waves bye-bye to one hand with the only one he’s got left, but we won’t say how it happens.


...and maybe this.

Quote
Remember when the second trailer came out and there was a mysterious woman disrobing beside a pool of water inside a cave? Everyone was trying to guess who she might be – Maybe Shuri, Black Panther’s sister, or a member of his personal bodyguard corps, the Dora Milaje? Maybe Jacosta, the “female” mechanism Ultron created in the comics as his bride? I spun a whole theory that this woman could be one of the Eternals, who provide a mystical alternative to the problem of how to defeat an indestructible consciousness like Ultron.

Forget all that. Here’s the answer: She’s no one. That is, she’s not in the movie.

In fact, Thor’s whole journey to this cave is a bit of a headscratcher, which suggests a subplot that was seriously truncated. Maybe when the Blu-ray comes out, we’ll get our answer to: “Who is the mystery woman?”

maybe i missed it when t read the article, but who says "she's not in the movie?"  And how can they call it a headscratcher, and a seriously truncated subplot before we even see the movie?!?

Also, Joss has stated there are some surprise cameos or something like that in this movie, so I'm not completely discounting a BP appearance.  After all, they have to leave some surprises for the movie.

If there's still time to consider a director for the Black Panther movie as you've written,  the best candidate should obviously be Mr. Hudlin.

Who else knows the material better than him?

Despite the fact that the man very much has a highly respected career overall not everybody was a fan of his Panther run...plus it's possible that the material could use a fresh new set of eyes.  Also, I don't think anyone asked if people like Joss Whedon or the Russo Brothers knew the material or could connect with fans better...and look at the results they got.  Though I do think it would be good for Mr. Hudlin to be a consultant.

Ava Duvernay could be a great out of the box choice like the Russo Brothers were for Cap 2...plus she's connecting with a larger black and non black audience these days after Selma...an audience that might not go see the movie otherwise...meaning she could bring more viewers in.

Anyway, its not definite...rumors are they are courting her for either BP or Captain Marvel.

Joss Whedon is a well-established comicbook writer, movie & television director which I believe speak for itself regarding understanding the material and connecting with fans.

I dunno...the Russo bros were my main point...they never directed an action movie before and no one knows if they ever knew anything about the comics...yet they arguably made the best MCU movie yet.   And I'm not sure if anyone, including Mr. Hudlin, would be a "sure" thing.  Again, as with most things, not everyone was a fan of his run on Panther and not every movie he made was stellar, though some were gems.  (This obviously could be said of any director)

Even Joss Whedon failed with Avengers 2, which is getting critically panned and honestly deserves it.

Duvernay isn't a sure thing, but brings fresh new possibilities.  Plus she did do a pretty intense, political and spy type action episode of Scandal that showed some chops for action and drama.  From the controversies before with his Panther run some fans could get turned off from seeing it with Hudlin as director, though I'm sure many others still will go see it.

Like I said, nothing is a sure thing.

The momentum that Mr. Hudlin (and previous writers & artists) has maintained for the character should be enough to give moviegoers not overly familiar with Black Panther a solid point of reference. Unless you can provide some evidence (statistical or otherwise) regarding how some fans would react to Mr. Hudlin's name emblazoned on the movie's credits, the point isn't really that uncertain.   

If Ms. Duvernay's research team is skilled, she could possibly pull off a satisfactory Black Panther movie for fans who have been waiting in anticipation for decades,   I'd welcome it but wouldn't be my first choice for director.

In the movie industry game, utilizing the right elements will most certainly yield a sure thing.
How do you think the movie industry became what it is today? ;)

How do I think the movie industry became what it is today? The question nor answer has nothing to do with the point.  You're talking like the movie industry has never produced a bad or financially failed movie even with the supposed "right" elements in place.  I'm sure you know this isn't true.

And the point is neither my point or yours is certain or uncertain.  Like I said, nothing is a sure thing.  However, evidence isn't needed (nor is the point, but) since it was well documented on this board and others the dislike or hatred (unreasonable though some of it was) by some fans of Mr. Hudlin's Black Panther run.  This dislike could carry over to the same fans possibly not wanting to see it because of that.  I'd probably be less enthusiastic about seeing it myself as I wasn't a fan of it either, though I highly like some of his other works.  And though he's known, it's not like the man is known on the level of say a Joss Whedon, who had a huge name for himself in the mainstream even before Avengers.

Again, not a sure thing.  But again, nothing is.

And momentum that's been maintained for the character by Hudlin and other writers is highly debatable since that momentum has lead to Panther in the comics currently losing the sister Hudlin introduced, along with his kingdom and nation.  It actually seems like they're stripping the character down to re-introduce him in the comics and the MCU, not carry over already established momentum.  His introduction in the third Cap movie will most likely be the point of reference moviegoers not familiar with him will be given, seeing as he's playing a big role in that.  So I think that point is immaterial.

Plus, you seem to be assuming that Ms. Duvernay, by needing a research team and what not, isn't aware of or hasn't actually read comics or Black Panther.  We don't know that.  But I fully understand why she wouldn't be your first choice of director.  Heck, my first choice might be the Russo bros after Cap 2.  But unlike you, Hudlin wouldn't be my first choice, and I probably would want to see Ava's vision before his again.

Quite the contrary, A. Curry.  :)

Nothing is a sure thing, I agree, however, one thing is  certain...
--- something is certainly a sure thing.  :)

The Hollywood movie industry has always thrived on:

1. What's popular
2. Word & picture association
3. History
4. Social commentary

That's what makes Hollywood movies work.

Now that I think about, it would benefit Ms. Devernay's portfolio greatly as a filmmaker to have the success of 'Selma' , a movie about a real-life Black superhero who laid the foundation of how to lead & teach determined people how to protest peacefully for a very important cause and then follow-up with a movie about a fictional Black superhero that leads a determined people in Africa.

A Hard Choice in direct contrast with a movie about a former enslaved African exacting revenge on slavers who have abducted his wife.

So, yeah, you may have a point afterall with choosing Ms. Duvernay as a director for the Black Panther movie.


What's important to me as a fan of The Black Panther is that the material is treated with the utmost respect that the creator did when the character first appeared and that is why I nominated Mr. Hudlin because he has demonstrated exactly that.

I really like Avengers 2, brutha. And honestly...Hudlin is hands down theeee BEST choice Marvel could make to helm The Black Panther movie. Far and away thee best. That's exactly why he won't get the nod. Hudlin+Priest would smash all barriers with the illest script if they co-wrote it. They'd probably crush HANCOCK's GOAT box office record for Black superheroes, and definitely beat THE HULK's solo movie.  That's exactly why it won't happen.

Next best would be Fuqua. Because BP=BIG ACTION. Haven't seen Duvernay's grasp of action. Have seen Antoine's. Twon is ill with it. Hudlin with DJANGO [ yeah yeah I know about the whole Tarantino thing ] and Fuqua with almost everything has shown real skills with the big action.

Both Hudlin [ the #1 pick ] and Fuqua have proven that they can and do script potent dialogue, shoot character scenes well, and much more. BP would be firing on all cylinders with Fuqua directing. BP would be transcend dimensions with Hudlin directing. Either director would benefit the more with a talent like Priest scripting.

So. Of course it won't happen.

Until we Redjack our own studio. Hmmm...

Spot on post, Brother Ture! I think both your revelation information and the caution regarding getting excited regarding unverified info is dead on. Well done.

With the changes "AOU" presented to the BP mythos I could see Marvel introducing T'Challa by having someone take a shot at T'Chaka.  Might not make sense for it to be The Winter Soldier as we know from "CATWS" Bucky is piecing together the story of who he really is.  However, Crossbones is in need of some serious upgrades after  "CATWS" and I could see him being sent in to implicate Bucky setting up a clash, not only between T'Challa and WS but Cap and Falcon too?  I could also see a re-built Klaue going back for more Vibranium and re-establishing the BP origin?  The former might map better to "Civil War?"

I guess we'll see?

Peace,

Mont

Also, I don't think anyone asked if people like Joss Whedon or the Russo Brothers knew the material or could connect with fans better...and look at the results they got.




Joss Whedon is a well-established comicbook writer, movie & television director which I believe speak for itself regarding understanding the material and connecting with fans.

I don't know anything about the Russo Bros.

I'd rather choose a sure thing than take a risk with this kind of material.

I dunno...the Russo bros were my main point...they never directed an action movie before and no one knows if they ever knew anything about the comics...yet they arguably made the best MCU movie yet.   And I'm not sure if anyone, including Mr. Hudlin, would be a "sure" thing.  Again, as with most things, not everyone was a fan of his run on Panther and not every movie he made was stellar, though some were gems.  (This obviously could be said of any director)

Even Joss Whedon failed with Avengers 2, which is getting critically panned and honestly deserves it.

Duvernay isn't a sure thing, but brings fresh new possibilities.  Plus she did do a pretty intense, political and spy type action episode of Scandal that showed some chops for action and drama.  From the controversies before with his Panther run some fans could get turned off from seeing it with Hudlin as director, though I'm sure many others still will go see it.

Like I said, nothing is a sure thing.

I really like Avengers 2, brutha. And honestly...Hudlin is hands down theeee BEST choice Marvel could make to helm The Black Panther movie. Far and away thee best. That's exactly why he won't get the nod. Hudlin+Priest would smash all barriers with the illest script if they co-wrote it. They'd probably crush HANCOCK's GOAT box office record for Black superheroes, and definitely beat THE HULK's solo movie.  That's exactly why it won't happen.

Next best would be Fuqua. Because BP=BIG ACTION. Haven't seen Duvernay's grasp of action. Have seen Antoine's. Twon is ill with it. Hudlin with DJANGO [ yeah yeah I know about the whole Tarantino thing ] and Fuqua with almost everything has shown real skills with the big action.

Both Hudlin [ the #1 pick ] and Fuqua have proven that they can and do script potent dialogue, shoot character scenes well, and much more. BP would be firing on all cylinders with Fuqua directing. BP would be transcend dimensions with Hudlin directing. Either director would benefit the more with a talent like Priest scripting.

So. Of course it won't happen.

Until we Redjack our own studio. Hmmm...

We will SERIOUSLY have to disagree about Avengers 2.  It's even getting critically panned and Whedon's Ultron was a joke.  It could have been way better.

We will, as Battle and I did, have to disagree about Hudlin on Panther as well as I didn't really enjoy his take and writing of the character and mythos.  Also, what action shots or movies has Hudlin done outside of directing the cartoon?  I seriously may not know so educate me...Django was Tarantino.

Fuqua may be a good choice, absolutely.  So would F. Gary Gray. 

I still contend Ava Duvernay would be an interesting choice and actually would rather see her take than Mr. Hudlin's...though Priest assisting with script would be very cool as I thoroughly enjoyed his run.

Again, after the Magic the Russo brothers, who never did an action movie before, worked with Cap 2, I could see it happening.

I do hope we're not questioning Ms. Duvernay because she's a woman...

Yo...

M'man...

No one can win arguments by making assumptions.
Nowhere in the text exchange between you & I was there an agreement that Mr. Hudlin should not be assigned as director in The Black Panther movie ;  I merely understood  your point why you think Ms. Duvernay should take the assignment.


Let me be clear:

I strongly believe Mr. Hudlin is the primary person to handle director duties because he has demonstrated that he has a firm grasp of the material by treating the character with the dignity & respect that it deserves with the consistency that the creator did when the character made its first appearance.

I haven't seen AOU yet, but if TChalla is alive [ like he is /was in The Ultimates Universe ] then we have a very clear way to keep TChalla consistently in the orbit of The Avengers, grow him as a franchise character, and yet allow him to have solo movies, too. This also brings TChalla back to his original old skool title as PRINCE TChalla, as he was back in the 1960's [ for awhile ].

We also have a way to have Wesley Snipes in BP. As TChaka. He would smash and destroy that role.

 But. That would happen only if they plan to reboot Blade [ which I'm sure that they do ].

 And it's too much to hope for, but...Michael Jai White as TChaka would be insane, too.

Remember when I told you guys that a throwdown between TChaka and TChalla would be sweet, too? Some years ago? Welllll...

You misunderstood my response.  How I don't know...but I was saying supreme and I will have to disagree....AS YOU AND I DISAGREED ABOUT HUDLIN DIRECTING THE BP FILM, about Avengers 2.

No assumption made...I got your original message loud and clear. You just misunderstood my response.

I totally understand how and why you feel about his directing duties the way you do. ,I'm just saying supreme and I will have to disagree the way YOU AND I DISAGREED.

I agree that Mr. Hudlin should be assigned to direct The Black Panther movie.

You disagree.

I stated my reasons why this should be. You stated yours.

Oh, I know...but see an argument usually means someone is trying to "win" something...thus you yourself assuming I was trying to "win" this with your earlier assessment when responding to my post to supreme that you misunderstood.  You did use the word "win" when saying "No one can win arguments by making assumptions..."  A disagreement is less contentious than the word argument, and doesn't imply anyone is trying to "win" anything.  And for my part an assumption was not made nor was I trying to win anything.

But thanks for making me down with HEF.  Do I get a card for that?

An argument is 2 or more opposing points of view discussing that their position is  correct. Each side wanting to win their point over the other.  Try observing the 2016 presidential debates to understand what I'm getting at.
Look, I don't wanna get bogged down into semantics 'cause I already made my point.

You revoked my HF card??  You can do that? Lordy...what am I supposed to get my food stamps with now??  Lol...

Anyway, semantics it is, I just think you were coming from a position of trying to be correct when an argument like this can't be "correct" since it's not based on facts but actual opinion and honestly varying tastes.  Even the supposedly factual part about what supposedly makes a movie successful isn't factual since, again, nothing is a sure thing and even movie history has proven that. 

Also, I'm sure you're aware you're not the only one who may be politically astute and listens to NPR and such, so suggesting I need to watch a presidential debate to know what an argument is?  C'mon. 

No need to be insulting.

Closer to cinematic reality or cinematic dismissal? You decide.

First Look At Wakanda In Unused Avengers: Age Of Ultron Set Designs

Wakanda, the fictional African nation that Black Panther/T'Challa (Chadwick Boseman) will call home in the MCU, was supposed to appear in Avengers: Age of Ultron, but the scene was deleted.

In Avengers: Age of Ultron, the maniacal robot known as Ultron heads to Africa to score some Vibranium. Originally, Ultron was going to go Wakanda to get the super-strong, precious metal, but instead director Joss Whedon chose to have him purchase it from Ulysses Klaue (Andy Serkis) at South African shipyard.

I see what's happening here (although, I would've preferred for this imagery to be revealed in the final cut of The Black Panther movie).


Wakanda exists underground (or at the very least, the mining operation exists underground).

Very clever! :)

You may be right in your assessment.

Or.

I may see something that you and others missed. And appreciate what you missed. The same way that I was the first and only person to guess on HEF that Hickman was probably not writing a "whodunit" regarding The Incursions, but maybe some kind of "whodunit-horror story-morality play" mashup thing on a multidimensional scale.  And I was right.

So I could see the movie, see stuff you didn't, assess it properly whereas you both missed it and didn't assess it at all. Then I could have the sophistication and maturation of character to appreciate the stuff you missed, and be right about that,too. Again.

For example.

You referred to the high octane action within Avengers. But...do you know that action in and of itself can tell a very powerful story, reveal deep layers of character, of mindset, of spirit, that the written script cannot convey? And if you do know this, do you recognize and truly appreciate the nuances?  If HEF still has even a fourth of the martial artists on deck that we used to have, I am sure that my martial sisters and brothers will cosign this.

I have spent 39 years training in my family's unique Montu [ Afrakan fighting/spiritual/cultural/philosophical/intellectual etc disciplines ] and a plethora of Asian and Oriental fighting styles which all sport Afrakan roots. I see the sophisticated authenticity, character traits, motivations, character development, emotional content, and much more in the action scenes...these kinetic athletic expressions of the soul... immediately and am deeply appreciative of the efforts put forth by the action directors and actors when the story is told well.

Therefore. There could be and almost certainly are several layers of storytelling going on purely within the action that has utterly escaped the attention of your untrained eye.

Example: look at the action shown by Captain America in Captain America: First Avenger and the quantum leap shown in Captain America: Winter Soldier. Cap is literally better now than he was before. He has developed and grown as a character. In CA:FA he fought old skool style. In AVENGERS, his fighting evolved to a more modern style prior to the movie ripping out its action but he developed further as the movie went on. He fought better against the Chitauri en masse than he did when first fought Loki one on one. He had improved. He made tactical adjustments based upon information he didn't have previously in the movie. He also was more resolute in every regard wit hrespect otis fellow Avengers as time went on. As a result, he was more determined for and more confident in victory, and made better decisions in combat at every turn. He also made better assessments of the character quality and content of his fellow Avengers. He made superior mass attack decisions against the Chitauri in Avengers than he did in his first solo, CA:FA. He also adjusted tactically as the fights went on. He stopped with the shield throwing vs Loki. He made a number of style weapon to target and tactical adjustments to the Chitauri as they continued to press their attack. Do you have any idea why he would do such things, why and how these physical actions tie directly into dialogue and character development, pacing, etc in The Avengers?

 Such storytelling may not even be a factor in your mind when you're looking for stories. Or. Such storytelling may not be given the significant heft that it should occupy when storytelling and character moments, character development, is the issue.

In stories like The Last Samurai, The Matrix and V for Vendetta,Taken, The Book of Eli, The Bourne Series, Blade, etc. the discerning eye can pick out many emotional and character moments which tie into the story writing itself. Even THE AMAZING SPIDER MAN had several powerful scenes showing nuanced storytelling all via action sequences.

I look forward to enjoying the storytelling in AOU that you didn't even know was there.

In stories like The Last Samurai, The Matrix and V for Vendetta,Taken, The Book of Eli, The Bourne Series, Blade, etc. the discerning eye can pick out many emotional and character moments which tie into the story writing itself. Even THE AMAZING SPIDER MAN had several powerful scenes showing nuanced storytelling all via action sequences.

I look forward to enjoying the storytelling in AOU that you didn't even know was there.

Based on the long winded speculative nonsense your given to posting on this forum, you're more likely to draw stuff out of the movie that has no relevance to anything even remotely resembling logic whilst making excuses for a Joss Whedon who did his utmost to deflect criticism for his all white Avengers in the first movie by throwing a few token people of color into A0U who were of zero consequence to the actual movie.

You like empty spectacle so this movie will definitely be up your alley.

Laughing at this dude quoting all these movies at me and pontificating as if he has some higher understanding of story intricacies as if any of that has anything to do with the fact that Joss Whedon is part of a machine that never even considered the Black Panther as a viable option for the Avengers movies until Warner Brothers started talking about a live action Cyborg movie.

I haven't seen AOU yet, but if TChalla is alive [ like he is /was in The Ultimates Universe ] then we have a very clear way to keep TChalla consistently in the orbit of The Avengers, grow him as a franchise character, and yet allow him to have solo movies, too. This also brings TChalla back to his original old skool title as PRINCE TChalla, as he was back in the 1960's [ for awhile ].

We also have a way to have Wesley Snipes in BP. As TChaka. He would smash and destroy that role.

 But. That would happen only if they plan to reboot Blade [ which I'm sure that they do ].

 And it's too much to hope for, but...Michael Jai White as TChaka would be insane, too.

Remember when I told you guys that a throwdown between TChaka and TChalla would be sweet, too? Some years ago? Welllll...

AOU is the same as Avengers 2...unless we misunderstood each other, how can you say you really liked the movie when you haven't seen it?


Nah bruh we just got screwed by my laptop, is all. I meant that I would REALLY LIKE TO SEE the AOU Avengers movie. My bad.

 I've refrained from watching it online for free, saw some clips from my friends. From what I saw and the reviews that I read? I'm pretty sure that I'll like the movie.

Haven't seen it, though. Will see it soon.

I don't know...will have to agree with Salustrade that it's a lot of action but low on substance...along with some rather silly and hurried sub-plots and Ultron being wasted and made to joke and be too emotional, which he isn't.  The reviews I've read have been putting it down.  Whedon probably wanted to be done with the franchise and it showed. 

Not to mention he kind of robbed the panther mythos of an important occurrence in T'Challa's origin which you may realize once you see the film.

It made money though (though not as much as expected I think) but goes to show what I was saying from my earlier conversation that not even the supposed best planned movies with the supposed best choice for director and all are a sure thing, especially if you're judging it from more than just how much money it makes.  Artistic criticism, merit, and relevancy counts for something or Kanye West wouldn't be losing his damn mind all the time.

I also agree that Whedon threw in a lot of the supporting black characters from the seperate franchises all of a sudden for some reason...though the small doses of the Panther's story coming on was cool.

Got you on the mistake before, it seems that there was quite a bit of misunderstanding going on...lol.

When you finally see it, look forward to your assessment though I will be surprised if you actually like it.  However I must say I'm also surprised at your defenses of Hickman's handling of Panther and his New Avengers arc altogether...I gave up on it long ago and from what I've seen I haven't missed much of anything and think he really crippled T'Challa unnecessarily.

New CAPTAIN AMERICA: CIVIL WAR Details On 'Black Panther

JoBlo has posted another crop of details about Captain America: Civil War. This time it's less about the plot and more about the characters - or more specifically, what new costumes and gadgets they'll be utilizing in the movie. That said there is also some new story info, so if you don't want to be SPOILED on that front, best read no further.

We'll start with Black Panther. According to the site, T'Challa will actually side with Tony Stark initially, though his loyalties may shift as the story progresses. This obviously places him in direct conflict with Captain America, and the two ultimately come to blows. As expected, Panther's costume is "shrouded in Vibranium", and during his battle with Rogers we'll see him "scratching Cap's shield easily and his prowess will prove to be a viable threat." We can also expect to see a "sleek Panther jet of some type," which apparently looks very "Stark-like."

And finally the Falcon will be getting a few additions such as wrist lasers, grappling hooks, and... Redwing (a robotic drone ).

Of course, I do!  :)

As I've written before, I understand why Ms. Duvernay was considered. 

Many people believed Tim Story wasn't the right choice on 'Fantastic Four' but he proved the naysayers wrong. I was one of those naysayers.

Why?

Because of 'Barbershop', and to this day, I still would not watch that movie...
---even if you paid me!  :)

I can watch 'Taxi' over and over again 'cause it was brilliant and 'Fantastic Four' and 'Rise of the Silver Surfer'...? 
...was a dream come true. I can literally watch all three movies over and over again as I always see something different.

Let's hope Ms. Duvernay knock it out the park with 'the Black Panther'  (http://www.rubicondev.com/forum/images/smilies/36.gif)

Dude, are you really this petty or just joking?   Don't tell me you're still butt hurt over a simple disagreement (not argument) we had weeks ago.  No one was trying to "win" anything but you, I said that before.

And when did I ever argue or even say during that first disagreement that Ava was definitely directing?  That wasn't even the discussion!!   I simply stated my opinion why she would be a good choice and better to me than Hudlin.

Anyway, It's all over the Internet on various sites...heck Vanity Fair said it and several friends made me aware of it...how was anyone supposed to know it was a rumor?  Everyone online has been praising the decision and thinks it's definite.

It's pretty likely she's going to anyway since she's def been approached about it and the online hype over it shows a positive reaction.  Can't imagine she'd turn down an opportunity like this....

In any case, apologies if I misled anyone.

My friend and fellow HEFfer voodoochild said he isn't surprised that Ava turned Marvel down because Marvel has a very definite way of doing things...and Ava is a auteur. He says that Marvel might lean toward a TV director with a strong feel for action. Of the off top Hollywood names that he mentioned, he added The Hughes Brothers to the list of consideration in our discussion. I...to my shame...had forgotten about our august Brothers.

Black Panther May Have A Fascinating New Directing Candidate

([url]http://orig09.deviantart.net/26e6/f/2015/159/a/6/wakanda_by_junkyardawesomeness-d8wiqu6.jpg[/url])
                                          picture is not from Cinema Blend article

After Black Panther make his MCU debut next year in Captain America: Civil War, the leader of Wakanda will star in his own film in 2018. Despite the film being three years away, there’s been a lot of chatter lately about who will direct the solo film. Selma’s Ava DuVernay almost took the job, but ended up passing on it. Now there’s a new candidate who may be in the running for Black Panther: F. Gary Gray, director of this month’s N.W.A. biopic Straight Outta Compton.

During an interview with BlackTree TV about Gray’s new film, the outlet brought up how they heard that his name might be in the running to helm Black Panther. Gray responded:

"I would love to direct a superhero movie, man. We’ll see what happens. If it’s right, I’m there."

It’s unclear from that statement whether Gray is simply expressing interest in Black Panther or if he has actually had a conversation with Marvel, but either way, it sounds like he has at least thought about the project. This isn’t the first time Gray has been connected to a Marvel film. He was in the running to direct Captain America: The Winter Soldier back in 2012, but he dropped so he could direct Straight Outta Compton, and the Russo Brothers were hired instead. With Straight Outta Compton so far earning positive early reviews from critics, Marvel should at least consider meeting with Gray if they haven’t already.

Gray kicked off his directing career in 1992, helming the music video for Ice Cube’s "It Was a Good Day," and throughout the 1990s and 2000s directed music videos for artists and groups like Cypress Hill, Dr. Dre, OutKast, Whitney Houston, and Coolio. The first feature film he directed was 1995’s Friday, and his other notable credits include The Italian Job, Be Cool, A Man Apart, and Law Abiding Citizen.

As far as Black Panther goes, only star Chadwick Boseman is confirmed to appear. Little is known about the MCU’s T’Challa other than during the Civil War conflict he will function as that film’s third party rather than ally himself with Tony Stark or Steve Rogers. Martin Freeman’s mysterious Captain America: Civil War character will also reportedly play some part in Black Panther, and it’s possible we could see Andy Serkis reprise Ulysses Klaw (spelled Klaue in the MCU), Black Panther’s most notorious adversary from the comics, who was last seen in Avengers: Age of Ultron getting his arm sliced off by the eponymous villain.

Comic book fans and general moviegoers can look forward to Black Panther hitting theaters on July 6, 2018.

All these false flags are beginning to remind me of the Wesley Snipes era where he was trying to get a Black Panther movie made to no avail.

(http://screenrant.com/wp-content/uploads/Marvel-Studios-Black-Panther-Movie-Logo-Fan-Made.jpg)

Let's hope so.

Maybe some news will come forth at the D23 Expo held on August 14–16, 2015 at the Anaheim Convention Center in Anaheim, California. Marvel Studios will present footage from Captain America: Civil War. Man, if we get to see the Black Panther in action... but if we don't that would really be saying something about the importance of BP in the MCU.

This could set up very well for T'Challa/Black Panther if say he avenges his father who turns out to have been murdered by an "enhanced" super-powered Klaue rather UK with a hand-held sonic blaster that looks like a portable air-conditioner a la Stan and Jack.  That would nicely tie-up the ad libbed A2AOU Wakanda-Klaue history.

CAPTAIN AMERICA: CIVIL WAR Footage Description From D23 Reveals Major New Details

This is from an actual CBR poster that attended the event.

Quote
It does look more like the concept art with the aid of cg now that the stunt costume has been seen      Smoov-E of CBR

Quote
Out of everyone they showed in shirt and jeans T'Chala wasn't one of them as it was Cap, Falcon, Widow( undercover ), Vision( in a business suit ), Lang, Wanda, Tony and Clint. The two major bits that had T'Chala had him fully suited up but what was cool was the first time we see him Cap has his shield up defensively and T'Chala just puts his hand on it and pushes it down in a "what are you doing? Stand down" manner and the biggest take away that got the whole crowd to stand up was a full shot of T'Challa with the pov below him in broad daylight and he is lit in a way that the sun shining on him gives him a majestic aura like what Idris Elba got in Pacific Rim after he took down that kaiju in the flashback.     Smoov-E of CBR

While We Await Chadwick's debut in Captain America Civil War...

Director and star D.A. Jackson and his film company Workhorse Pictures have produced Storms of Carnage: The Black Panther Unleashed part 2, the sequel to the thrilling short The Black Panther Unleashed: Storms of Carnage .

First the teasers.

Now the film.

https://youtu.be/Ual7kyHKJN8 (https://youtu.be/Ual7kyHKJN8)  (what's up? We can't post Youtube, only the link?)

Next the news coverage.

(http://i.ytimg.com/vi/MFxvVYL7-4E/hqdefault.jpg)
https://youtu.be/MFxvVYL7-4E (https://youtu.be/MFxvVYL7-4E)

Then the prequel.

(http://i.ytimg.com/vi/UVVBSYuAu5c/maxresdefault.jpg)
https://youtu.be/UVVBSYuAu5c (https://youtu.be/UVVBSYuAu5c)

And to cap it off they even have movie posters.

(http://filmfandojo.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/04/Storms2poster1-1-1-624x936.jpg)

D.A. Jackson and Workhorse Pictures have done an outstanding presentation of the Black Panther. They even proved that the film version of BP can stand on its own without Klaw. While the big screen has Chadwick, I suggest Jackson and Workhorse get to do there thing on Netflix. They're that good, now imagine them with a budget of millions.

The Black Panther Unleashed: Storms of Carnage

Filmmaker Honored for Black Panther Film

By Lawrence Laguna on September 7th, 2015

Producer D.A. Jackson has released his second independent short film based off Marvel Comics’ superhero Black Panther on his YouTube channel.

Jackson received much acclaim with his first installment of the series. The sequel, “The Black Panther Unleashed Part 2,” has also grabbed the attention of industry experts.

Within hours of the release, Jackson received a call from Demetrius Angelo, founder of Urban Action Showcase and Expo, a premier all-Action entertainment platform, sponsored by HBO, New York City.

On behalf of UASE, Angelo is honoring Jackson and his team from Workhorse Pictures by inviting them to be panelists at the Urban Action Expo in November on the Comic Book film panel, “From Strip to Screen.”

Jackson, a Gainesville native and University of Florida graduate, was excited to hear his work in the Black Panther series had been recognized by a premier film agency.

The series was a challenge to inspire others to create similarly interesting work, and that goal is being met, according to Jackson. He said the recognition the series is receiving affirms that there is an audience out there for their passion and work.

Jackson’s first film, “Black Panther Unleashed: Storms of Carnage”, cost his production team $50 to produce. He invested about $500 to create part two with the help of his team.

With immediate feedback from fans and film festivals alike, the installment paid off.

Angelo said he followed Jackson’s work with the Black Panther sequel and invited Workhouse Pictures to join three other independent production companies at the film expo.

“You want the best at your festival,” Angelo said. “You want the best at your event. You want the best to present at your audience. In my eyes he’s definitely one of the best when it comes to developing as it pertains to the action genre,” Angelo said of Jackson, “His content is definitely, to me, Hollywood or above Hollywood standard as an independent film maker.”

As a panelist, Jackson will be talking about how to bring a concept from a comic book to screen and how to make an independent film.

His two episodes revolving around the Black Panther character have been recognized by the UASE.

The first installment was the winner of the YouTube short film competition.

Jackson created his own script for his Black Panther film, as it was not a specific story from one of Marvel Comics’ issues.

In 2018, Marvel Studios will introduce the Black Panther character for the first time in the cinematic universe.

Jackson said he thinks it’s cool that his short film will be compared to the Marvel Studios’ version. His version of the Black Panther is a departure from the original, he said, which is why Jackson believes Marvel is allowing him and Workhorse Pictures the space to continue making them.

“The more people get the word out, the more people that see what we can do, that gives us the inspiration and passion to actually push the envelope and do more,” Jackson said. “With that little bit of a budget and a dedicated crew and everyone with focused minds, we’re able to achieve things that are at least comparable to mainstream entertainment.”

Jackson and his team will head to New York City for the expo on Nov. 6-7 at the AMC Empire 25 Theater in Times Square to represent the urban action film community.

Anthony Mackie Doesn't Care If 'Black Panther' Director Is Black: "They Didn’t Get a Horse to Direct 'Seabiscuit'"
OCTOBER 22, 2015 1:17pm PT by Graeme McMillan

(http://cdn4.thr.com/sites/default/files/imagecache/scale_crop_768_433/2014/09/anthony_mackie.jpg)

Quote
Unlike many fans, Anthony Mackie — AKA the Falcon in Marvel's Captain America and Avengers movies — isn't concerned whether or not the studio hires an African American director to take charge of its first black superhero movie, 2018's Black Panther.

"I don’t think it’s important at all," the actor told The Daily Beast during a promotional appearance for his current project, Our Brand is Crisis. "As a director your job is to tell a story," he continued. "You know, they didn’t get a horse to direct Seabiscuit!"

Mackie went on to say that he doesn't believe that the race of a director "has to do with their ability to tell a story," adding, "I think it’s all about the director’s ability to be able to relate to that story and do it justice. I think men can direct women, and two of my greatest work experiences were with female directors. So I think it all depends."

At one point, Selma director Ava DuVernay was in the mix to take on Black Panther, which features Chadwick Boseman in the title role, before dropping out because she didn't "see eye to eye" with Marvel over the direction of the project. The studio is in negotiations with Joe Robert Cole to write the movie. Relatedly, Marvel's publishing arm announced last month that MacArthur "Genius" grant winner Ta-Nehisi Coates will write its new Black Panther comic book, launching in January.

The comments, which have already drawn criticism on social media, put the actor into hot water for the second time this week. An interview with BET on Monday, in which he appeared to endorse Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump, required a hasty takeback on Twitter after fan complaints.

Study puts numbers to the lack of minority representation in film
by Vadim Rizov

A study released by USC’s Annenberg School For Communication & Journalism provides some stats to put these high-profile titles in perspective. Examining 500 top-grossing films released in the U.S. from 2007 to 2012, the study considers some 20,000 characters and finds diversity is sorely lacking. “Across 100 top-grossing films of 2012, only 10.8 percent of speaking characters are Black, 4.2 percent are Hispanic, 5 percent are Asian, and 3.6 percent are from other (or mixed race) ethnicities,” the paper notes at the outset. “Just over three-quarters of all speaking characters are White (76.3 percent). These trends are relatively stable, as little deviation is observed across the five-year sample.”

Those representation rates don’t correlate with who’s buying tickets. “As a point of comparison, a full 44 percent of movie tickets sold domestically were purchased in 2012 by non-Caucasians,” the study notes. “26 percent of tickets were sold to Hispanics, 11 percent to African Americans and 7 percent to people from other ethnicities. Using these MPAA percentages, Hispanics are the most underrepresented group on screen.”

Among the other conclusions reached: “Hispanic females are more likely to be depicted in sexy attire and partially naked than Black or White females. Asian females are far less likely to be sexualized.” While women got assigned the same kind of domestic status regardless of their race or ethnicity, “Hispanic males are more likely to be depicted as fathers and relational partners than males in all other racial/ethnic groups. Black males, on the other hand, are the least likely to be depicted in these roles.”

Behind the camera, diversity is even more lacking, with “a ratio of over 16 non-Black directors working to every 1 Black director,” and only two black women directors among the 500 films considered. That doesn’t surprise Ava DuVernay, the first black female director to win best director at Sundance last year for her feature Middle Of Nowhere. “I pretty much know us all personally,” she told The Los Angeles Times.

WHY CAN’T MARVEL FIND A DIRECTOR FOR ‘BLACK PANTHER?’

(https://nypdecider.files.wordpress.com/2015/11/black-panther-director-lead.png?w=720&h=480&crop=1)

Yesterday rumors started swirling that Creed and Fruitvale Station director Ryan Coogler had passed on helming Marvel’s Black Panther movie. If true, Coogler is the third major African-American director whom the studio has courted for the project — and the third who has turned it down.

Earlier this summer, Selma‘s Ava DuVernay publicly passed on Black Panther. It seemed that she foresaw having similar creative differences with Marvel Studios that Ant-Man‘s original director Edgar Wright did. She explained to the press that Black Panther wouldn’t “be an Ava DuVernay film.”

Then, it was rumored that Marvel sat down with Straight Outta Compton‘s director, F. Gary Gray. Those conversations halted when he chose to sign onto Furious 8. But what’s going on? Why is it so hard for Marvel to lock down a director for one of the most hotly anticipated superhero films in production? After all, whoever directs Black Panther will have the distinct honor of presenting the first major black superhero (in his own movie) to the masses. Shouldn’t that be bait enough?

Yes, and no. Marvel films aren’t successful because of the auteurs behind them; it’s because studio head Kevin Feige and his team have carefully constructed an overarching narrative that runs through all the films. To direct a Marvel film is to bend to the will of the producer. So, for up-and-coming writer-directors like DuVernay and Coogler, it’s not necessarily such a great gig. There might be the opportunity to make a lot of money, but at the cost of sacrificing one’s voice. Again, the Edgar Wright debacle is still fresh in a lot of insiders’ minds and Joss Whedon just about had a meltdown while promoting Avengers: Age of Ultron.

Then there’s the bigger problem: Black Panther is slated for 2018 and still doesn’t have a finished script. Why would a serious director sign on to a film when they have absolutely no blueprint for what Marvel wants it to be? It’s just not practical to sign on to the film this early in the game.

So, who could want to sign on? Despite the fact that Anthony “The Falcon” Mackie recently said that Black Panther doesn’t need a black director —as he put it, “You know, they didn’t get a horse to direct Seabiscuit!”— the buzz is Marvel wants to ensure there’s more racial diversity behind-the-scenes. The good news is that there are dozens upon dozens of talented black directors working in both film and television who could all add something unique to the project. With that in mind, here are five picks that we could see in the mix for Black Panther.

1 Antoine Fuqua
(https://nypdecider.files.wordpress.com/2015/11/antoine-fuqua-black-panther.png?w=720&h=480&crop=1)

For decades, Antoine Fuqua has distinguished himself as a director who understands the intersection of action and drama. He knows how to stage a fight scene and frame a hero shot. He’d be an almost-too-natural choice to take the reins of a Marvel big budget action flick. The one hiccup? He’s currently tied up working on his adaptation of The Magnificent Seven. Still, that film will be in theaters next year, which means he should be able to film and deliver an incredible Black Panther film by 2018.

2 Gina Prince-Bythewood
(https://nypdecider.files.wordpress.com/2015/11/gina-prince-bythewood-black-panther.png?w=720&h=480&crop=1)

Marvel has been criticized for a lack of diversity across the board when it comes to their directors. Patty Jenkins almost directed Thor: The Dark World (much like Ava DuVernay almost directed Black Panther), but they still haven’t found a female voice to shepherd one of their films. We would suggest they look at Gina Prince-Bythewood. Prince-Bythewood is responsible for one of our favorite films of 2014, Beyond the Lights, and has an expert eye for detail and character development. She could bring a different point of view to the Wakandan warrior.

3 Spike Lee
(https://nypdecider.files.wordpress.com/2015/11/spike-lee-black-panther-director.png?w=720&h=480&crop=1)

Okay, we know that it’s highly unlikely that such an esteemed auteur like Spike Lee would choose to direct Black Panther when he has the complete and total freedom to pursue his own pet projects. He has nothing to gain from the partnership. They aren’t going to give him a bump in notoriety and there’s next to no way they’d allow one of their flagship films to be labeled “a Spike Lee Joint.” We admit it’s nothing but wishful thinking, but can you just imagine how awesome a Spike Lee Marvel film would be? CAN YOU?!?!?

4 Justin Simien
(https://nypdecider.files.wordpress.com/2015/11/justin-simien-black-panther.png?w=720&h=480&crop=1)

If there’s one thing we can glean from Marvel’s first three choices for a Black Panther director, it’s that they’re interested in bright young talent. You know, the directors still finding their voice and riding high off of their first few hits. Dear White People writer/director Justin Simien certainly fits into this mold. The only question is: Would he be comfortable directing action? And, like a lot of his peers, would he be cool working within Marvel’s sometimes creatively-stifling system?

5 Paris Barclay
(https://nypdecider.files.wordpress.com/2015/11/paris-barclay-black-panther.png?w=720&h=480&crop=1)

Paris Barclay may not be a household name, but he’s an esteemed member of the Hollywood community. Barclay has won two Emmys (for directing episodes of NYPD Blue) and is the current President of the Directors Guild of America. Now, that post might make it difficult for him to devote energy to a big Marvel project, but he’s found time to work closely with Kurt Sutter on Sons of Anarchy and The Bastard Executioner and to direct episodes of Glee and Manhattan. Barclay is one of the rare directors who is known for being a master of fluidity. He’s done everything from direct music videos to dramedies to musicals to sci-fi fare like Lost. It’s his experience working alongside producers and show runners in television that might make him a great match for Marvel.

I wonder why people are passing on Black Panther? But I am glad Marvel is trying to get some diversity behind the camera. Other names that I came up with are the Hughes Brothers, Slyvain White, Kevin Hooks, Amma Asante, Charles Burnett, Carl Franklin, Tanya Hamilton, and Bill Duke.

Regarding the trailer, from the close ups I'm not real impressed with BP's actual suit. The concept art was better.

Absolutely right. Absolutely right. I have never seen a REGRESSION from concept art to actual movie suit application before.

People probably pass on BP movie for the same reason it has been so hard to get a Wonder Woman movie made. (It has taken them over 20 or 30 years to get to this point.) It is more important than just a movie, and everyone knows that.

Post by: Emperorjones on November 26, 2015, 05:26:39 am
Granted there will be a lot of pressure and expectation for a Black Panther film as for Wonder Woman and to some extent Captain Marvel too, in large part due to the ground breaking nature of each of those films. Though I have to say that there was also pressure or expectation issues-or lack thereof-for films like Ant-Man and maybe Guardians of the Galaxy, just different due to the nature and the casting, but still some pressures. I don't think it's quite that though that's keeping people from the director's chair. I just wonder if there's a straitjacket approach Marvel has toward their films that is keeping some people away. Maybe there isn't enough flexibility creatively for the director's to do their own thing, to put their stamp on it. In a previous piece the Selma director pretty much says so. It's a shame that Coogler passed on it. He does a great job in depicting black male characters-strengths, vulnerabilities, aspirations, all that. His take on Panther would've been interesting.

Though I have to say that there was also pressure or expectation issues-or lack thereof-for films like Ant-Man and maybe Guardians of the Galaxy, just different due to the nature and the casting, but still some pressures. I don't think it's quite that though that's keeping people from the director's chair. I just wonder if there's a straitjacket approach Marvel has toward their films that is keeping some people away. Maybe there isn't enough flexibility creatively for the director's to do their own thing, to put their stamp on it. In a previous piece the Selma director pretty much says so. It's a shame that Coogler passed on it. He does a great job in depicting black male characters-strengths, vulnerabilities, aspirations, all that. His take on Panther would've been interesting.



REading your comment was the first I heard about Coogler passing on BP. Turns out that none of the rumors had fact and/or heft behind them. The rumor that he was offered the BP chair is just that...a rumor. Nothing more. Ask the man himself:

http://screenrant.com/black-panther-marvel-movie-director-ryan-coogler/ (http://screenrant.com/black-panther-marvel-movie-director-ryan-coogler/)


We are on the site of the man who would by far bring the best BP. That's Reginald Hudlin. He'd write AND direct that film. We'd get the hardest hardcore BP there ever was, and we'd bust gasms watching it. It'd be a massive financial if not critical success, too. RH would set ANOTHER BP record [ he sold the most ever single issues of BP with BP#1, he sold the most ever consecutive issues of BP as a solo book, he propelled BP to acknowledged A-List status and inclusion in all MCU Events, he authored the MOTC, RH is basically several levels above being "da shiznit" ].

 Which is why they're running like gazelles from a cheetah away from him.

On a different note? This is the first time that I saw Will Smith going on record regarding why he didn't do Django Unchained. In fact, I didn't even know he was offered the role.

http://www.slashfilm.com/will-smith-in-django-unchained/ (http://www.slashfilm.com/will-smith-in-django-unchained/)

I read and respect Will's reasons for declining the role, but I disagree in key points. I do think that Django should have killed Calvin Candie AND Samuel L's sell out butt of a character [ SamYell did a GREAT job of depicting him ], but I could live with Django's White Doctor friend killing Candie. Plus? The what he said after killing Candie was hella funny.

But. For real. We needed some at least: " THIS IS SPARTA!!" level butt kickin, violence, etc along with the in-story explanation of understanding of and complete support for Django's action, and we mostly got it. Django needed to destroy Candie Land and all the key personnel in it--Calvin Candie's family and key staff members. Why? Because Candie's family would keep bringing misery to Black people and even some Whites if allowed to go unchecked.

Jamie Foxx KILT that role, though, so I'm glad Foxx got a chance to do Django.

I respect Will's views, not so much the pie in the sky love is the answer to his second point, but to the first about the lead. I get that. Dr. Schultz was a white savior kind of figure. Django had some agency, but not full agency. Fair enough this is an antebellum story about a black man so the idea of him not having full agency makes sense historically, but this was also a revenge fantasy story with historic trappings, more so than a documentary.

And perhaps its that reluctance to let a black man take vengeance against a white man, whereas it's okay for him to unload on another black man, that might have been at play here. While Stephen was perhaps the 'brains' of the operation, Candie could've pulled his card whenever he wanted. Stephen was manipulating him, but that could've changed quickly. And then where would Stephen have been, so the idea that Stephen was the main villain, I think is a bit tenuous.

I do like Smith's idea of a black love story. It's something we've never quite had in cinema-mainstream cinema at least, a great black historical romance drama kind of film. Not sure if Django is the right kind of film you want to make a love story out of, though there could've been more done with Django and Broomhilda's relationship within that film.

I wont be surprised it has something to do with the "direction" Marvel wants to do with him. 

It is wonder why Ava stated it won't be "her" film.

After watching Creed they should at least chat with him.

Agreed. They should at least "chat" with him. However. Whatever decision-making process won't even let them converse with RH about BP? It's very suspect. RH is THEE director for BP. It's a NO BRAINER. Really.

Its good to see a clear distinction between cinematic Black Panther and cinematic Batman.

Time to bring the X-Men back home to the MCU and reintroduce the Black Panther and Storm romance.

Black Panther: Meet Marvel's fearsome warrior from Captain America: Civil War
The history-making first black superhero arrives onscreen.
BY ANTHONY BREZNICAN • @BREZNICAN

(http://www.ew.com/sites/default/files/i/2015/12/02/chadwick-boseman-as-black-panther.jpg)

Posted December 2 2015 — 1:47 PM EST

Black Panther is no joke.

It’d be easy to snark about how Captain America and Iron Man were barely managing to hold their alliance together until a certain black cat crossed their path, but the truth is – they both want him on their side.

Black Panther commands respect. (And you definitely don’t want him against you.)

The historic first black comic book superhero will be getting his own stand-alone movie in February 2018, but we’ll first encounter Chadwick Boseman’s warrior-prince on May 6 in the clash between heroes in Captain America: Civil War.

Panther is a key figure in the conflict between Chris Evans’ Cap and Robert Downey Jr.’s Iron Man, and his allegiance is in flux — although he’s got serious issues with Sebastian Stan’s Bucky Barnes, a.k.a. the Winter Soldier, which steers him alongside the man in the iron mask.

While Tony Stark is known for flooding the zone with wisecracks, Black Panther isn’t fooling around.

“He’s definitely not the life of the party in this instance,” says Boseman, who won the role last October. “I think this is something true of the comic book character and the movie. You never quite know where he stands. There’s always a bit of concealing and mystery. So I think mysterious is more his boat. Not to say there’s not charm and he can’t be a ladies’ man and all that. It’s more like if there is humor, it’s more like James Bond.”

For the uninitiated, Black Panther, whose real name is T’Challa, is a prince from the fictional African nation of Wakanda, a technologically advanced nation that’s home to the world’s largest natural supply of vibranium — the same malleable-yet-indestructible metal that comprises Cap’s shield. Black Panther is not just a badass secret identity; in the comics it is a title passed down through the generations of rulers.

The character was first introduced in Fantastic Four #52 in July 1966, at a time when black characters in general were few and far between in comic books – and ones treated with the awe and admiration reserved for white heroes were even more rare.

Anthony Mackie’s Sam Wilson, a.k.a. Falcon, may have come first in the movie timeline, but Panther cleared the way for that character in print – along with other black superheroes like Luke Cage, Storm, Misty Knight, and more recently, Miles Morales, who took on the mantle of Spider-Man in Marvel’s “Ultimate Universe.”

Next spring, around the time the character makes his screen debut, Marvel Comics will publish a new Black Panther comics series written by Ta-Nehisi Coates, the journalist whose book, Between the World and Me, a missive to his own son about living as a black man in the United States, recently won the National Book Award for Nonfiction.

So, even in real life, Black Panther has a powerful legacy — and one that’s still growing. The movie has a lot to live up to.

In Civil War, T’Challa is drawn into the conflict between Cap and Iron Man that arises from the Sokovia Accords, which were enacted by world leaders after the events of Avengers: Age of Ultron as a way to mandate control over those with “enhanced abilities” who say they only want to do good for the world.

“There definitely is a sort of tradition that he’s torn between, in terms of how things were done in the past and how things need to happen now in this new world,” says Boseman, who’s best known for playing James Brown in Get On Up and Jackie Robinson in 42. “I think there’s perhaps a bit of a maverick there, and then there’s also a need to live up to traditions and his father’s legacy. And not even his father’s legacy, but the entire nation of Wakanda. I think those are the things you will see.”

Under different circumstances, Steve Rogers, another warrior whose very identity represents his country, might find common ground with Panther.

“I love our scenes together because I do think they feel a sense of responsibility. I think they’re both very selfless people,” Evans says. “They want the right thing, no one’s irrational, no one has an inflated ego.” (That’s got to be a dig at Iron Man, by the way.) “They’re family-first people,” Evans says. “I think outside of the suits we’d be friends, Steve and T’Challa.”

Kevin Feige, the president of Marvel Studios and creator of the interlocked series of movies (Civil War is No. 13, for those keeping track), says Panther was added to the story ahead of his solo-movie debut because Civil War needed someone who had his own agenda, who was a third party separate from the factions that aligned themselves behind Captain America and Iron Man.

“We kept talking about ‘somebody like Black Panther …’ After the third or fourth time that came up in a development meeting, someone said, ‘Can’t we just do the Black Panther?’ And we all looked at each other and said, ‘Yeah, I guess we could,’” Feige says. “We introduce him here, give him an arc, and make him a full character. We don’t just give him a cameo, to wave. He has his own conflict and his own people that he’s looking out for.”


Executive producer Nate Moore calls T’Challa “the undecided voter”: “He’s someone who hasn’t necessarily made up his mind about either side and whose agenda isn’t exactly what Cap’s agenda or what Tony’s agenda is.  And I think that brings him into conflict weirdly with both characters at different times in the film. He is the prince of an African nation that has so far stayed very much sort of in the shadows. And eventually the film will draw him and his father out of the shadows.”

The movie version is also not the same Black Panther fans now see in comics, almost 40 years after his creation. “In publishing, he is sort of this very wise and a sanguine figure who seems to know more than he lets on,” Moore says. “I think this is Black Panther in his younger years, where he maybe is a little bit more fiery than I think how they write him in the comics because he’s very much in the nascent stages of being a hero. So that means he is probably more fallible than the Black Panther that you read in comics, but for reasons that are completely logical.”

In the trailer for Civil War, we catch only a glimpse of Black Panther — delivering a spin-kick to the face of Winter Soldier — the brainwashed assassin and former best friend of Captain America’s, who is seeking redemption but has apparently been framed for a horrible crime. (No spoilers, but it’s not much of a leap to assume that T’Challa’s father may have been one of the victims of the blast targeting those world leaders, and was either killed or seriously hurt.)

But Boseman says no one’s loyalty is simple in this story. “Ultimately some sides are taken, but I think the trick of the movie is for no one to be blindly following,” he says. “Everybody is actually on their own side, in truth.”

Unlike Chris Hemsworth’s Thor, another prince from a far-off kingdom, who was introduced in the movies as a petulant prince unworthy of his powers and title, T’Challa doesn’t have those kinds of hang-ups. “The spoiled brat thing is never an option,” Boseman says. “He’s not in any way unaware of how important his role and his position is. I think he’s very much aware of the responsibility.”

So the responsibility thing is down. But what are his great powers?

“Panther is a cool character and he has a toughness, and a sort of intimidation factor with his costume,” says Anthony Russo, who directed Civil War with his brother, Joe. (The pair also made Captain America: The Winter Soldier together and are signed on to make the two-part Avengers: Infinity War movies in 2018 and 2019.) “We’re experimenting with how the light catches the costume.”

That’s because Black Panther’s outfit is not actually cloth. It’s metal. It’s vibranium. “It has a sheen because its a weave of the strongest metal in this fictional universe,” says Joe Russo.

“It’s like medieval chain mail, woven extremely thin,” Anthony adds. “It’s not comparable to any other costumes in the universe.”

Ask Boseman about the suit, and he lets out a low, rumbling laugh. “Are you talking about the mythology or the actual suit?” he says. The fiction is amazing, he says, but actually wearing the thing… not so much. The narrow, white-lensed eyes made it particularly hard for the actor to simply see where he was going.

“As far as the actual suit is concerned, I would say there’s a lot of comfort in the shoes, or the boots,” Boseman says. “That’s probably the only part I did enjoy! After you get them on you’re like, ‘Okay, that feels good.’ But other than that, I remember feeling extremely hot and claustrophobic, like, ‘How in the world am I gonna move and act and respond in this?’ But the shoes feel good. Everything else you get used to.”

But the imaginative parts? That was fun.

“As far as the storytelling is concerned, the vibranium is a metal that is dynamic. It can change how it’s used. It’s not a liquid, but it has the ability to change shape and change form and still have its strength. I think there a lot of things about that in the mythology that I think has a lot of potential in terms of the storytelling,” Boseman says.

Vibranium is not your typical armor. “It’s not just about being durable, it has the ability to absorb energy,” Boseman says. “It’s not just like you hit it and it doesn’t take it. It has the ability to absorb the attack of another person and repel or respond to that attack. That’s part of the power.”

As for fighting style, Black Panther has a unique amalgam of moves. “There are some animal forms, but not just cat. He could be a snake, or various different styles. Obviously there’s an opportunity to do some capoeira,” the Brazilian martial art that combines fighting with dance, Boseman says.

Part of Panther’s power is not just brute strength, but thinking ahead. “The key with T’Challa is to keep everybody on their toes. It’s to do the thing that is surprising, that you wouldn’t expect. So there’s a lot of agility and a lot of, like, ‘Why did he do that? Oh now I know why he did that. He was gonna come over here after he did that.’ I wouldn’t say he’s a ninja, but he does employ some of those aspects as well.”

Panther’s retractable claws are also made of vibranium — and since Cap’s shield is also forged from the substance: Who wins in a fight?

The Russo brothers have a simple answer for that: “We shall see,” Joe says.

But from Boseman’s point of view… ? There’s not even a question.

“If you’re talking to Mayweather about the Mayweather/Pacquiao fight, then Mayweather’s gonna say he’s gonna win,” Boseman says. “I have to back myself."

Thinking about Secret Wars again.

Y'know...God Doom saved the MULTIVERSE with his power. Which he stole from The Beyonders. I just don't see how even The Infinity Gauntlet and/or Thanos or all the powers of the rank and file combined superheroes can equal The Beyonders.

So I thin kthat hte heroes will fail to beat Doom in a direct powers vs powers battle. However. They may have the power to make the current civilization of Battleworld perish. And the ramifications of this could be far more profoundly personal for Doom than we may think.

Now...I may be wrong here, but...Doom usurped Reed's position as head of the Richards family, right? There are many issues from that act that play into his whole God Doom role.

And didn't Strnge say that Doom WAS VERY GOOD at being God Doom?

So. What if Doom loses because he realizes that when he is at his best...he still isn't as good and flawless etc as he thinks he should be? What if the way to "beat" Doom is the way that the 616 heroes used to "beat" Thanos? That is...get Thanos to beat himself?

What if that's the way? I mean I know and we know that the support of Molecule Man has to be withdrawn from Doom, but...how does THAT happen?

And what if Thanos...whose pretty smart [ actually a megagenius ]...figures out the Molecule Man angle and instead of fighting the heroes or Doom, he goes after Owen Reece? I think that this is plausible because I am convinced that Doom would kill the crap out of Thanos if they fought. And I think Thanos is smart enough to know this, and won't fight Doom [ unless his ego gets in the way ].

And another thing.

What if TChalla KEPT the Infinity Gauntlet? Could be purrty darn useful in The Ultimates. Wouldn't you think?

Doom doesn't need Thanos status. Which ibdobt think will be the case after reading sw8. There is ALOT if buolfnuo just for it to be wasted and us starting to come off as an underwhelming climax.

'Creed' Director Ryan Coogler in Talks to Direct Marvel's 'Black Panther'

Black Panther concept art (Disney/Marvel)

Ryan Coogler, the director who is coming off of the surprisingly strong opening of Creed, is in negotiations to direct Black Panther, Marvel Studios’ movie featuring the first black superhero.

The move puts the on-off dance the studio and the filmmaker have been minueting back in sympatico. Coogler had met with the studio earlier in the fall but talks cooled. Now, with the afterglow of Creed’s success, negotiations are back on.

Coogler’s latest film, starring Michael B. Jordan as Apollo Creed’s son Adonis, earned strong reviews and a big $29.6 million in its debut.

Coogler first made a name for himself with 2013’s Fruitvale Station, which stars Jordan as Oscar Grant, a Bay Area resident who, unarmed and handcuffed, was fatally shot by BART Police officer.

He’s quickly becoming one of Hollywood’s hottest young directors after catching everyone’s eye with Fruitvale and then pulling off Creed, a Rocky movie for whom many had low expectations.

Now it looks like he’s taking a bigger step with a studio superhero film.

Coogler is repped by WME.

Birthmoviesdeath.com first reported the news of Coogler being back in talks for Panther.

Thinking about Secret Wars again.

Y'know...God Doom saved the MULTIVERSE with his power. Which he stole from The Beyonders. I just don't see how even The Infinity Gauntlet and/or Thanos or all the powers of the rank and file combined superheroes can equal The Beyonders.

So I thin kthat hte heroes will fail to beat Doom in a direct powers vs powers battle. However. They may have the power to make the current civilization of Battleworld perish. And the ramifications of this could be far more profoundly personal for Doom than we may think.

Now...I may be wrong here, but...Doom usurped Reed's position as head of the Richards family, right? There are many issues from that act that play into his whole God Doom role.

And didn't Strnge say that Doom WAS VERY GOOD at being God Doom?

So. What if Doom loses because he realizes that when he is at his best...he still isn't as good and flawless etc as he thinks he should be? What if the way to "beat" Doom is the way that the 616 heroes used to "beat" Thanos? That is...get Thanos to beat himself?

What if that's the way? I mean I know and we know that the support of Molecule Man has to be withdrawn from Doom, but...how does THAT happen?

And what if Thanos...whose pretty smart [ actually a megagenius ]...figures out the Molecule Man angle and instead of fighting the heroes or Doom, he goes after Owen Reece? I think that this is plausible because I am convinced that Doom would kill the crap out of Thanos if they fought. And I think Thanos is smart enough to know this, and won't fight Doom [ unless his ego gets in the way ].

And another thing.

What if TChalla KEPT the Infinity Gauntlet? Could be purrty darn useful in The Ultimates. Wouldn't you think?

Doom doesn't need Thanos status. Which ibdobt think will be the case after reading sw8. There is ALOT if buolfnuo just for it to be wasted and us starting to come off as an underwhelming climax. With the end coming up in the next issue. Hopefully bp fans are not disappointed (which right now expectations are low) I need to get my hands on Ultimates though because what I have heard BP just got some baller feats added to his list

I agree with most of the above. I don't think Doom needs Thanos status...as my understanding is that Thanos' status as nigh unbeatable by all save himself is permanent. Whereas Doom's God Doom status will be gone in a month.

I mean that while God Doom IS God Doom, he is for the most part unbeatable by anyone who isn't Molecule Man or himself. There is no power or agency that the heroes can marshall in and of themselves...even with The Infinity Gauntlet...that can beat him. Therefore? The heroes must "go beyond themselves" [ quoting Hickman ] yet again to score the beyond impossible victory.

The series DOES feel rushed at the end. I still think that a writer like Hickman does best with a 12 issue maxiseries as a "miniseries" for him. SW should have been twelve issues.

Regarding The Ultimates? Man. You're gonna love it. I have both issues, and at the end of #2? Al Ewing basically says that whatever we think is big? Ultimates is gonna be bigger than that.  BP is killiin it...and I hope [ I NEED ] at some point [SOON ] to see Shuri. If not in The Ultimates, then in BP's solo.

Your a little late ont he party as i did get my hands on the Ultimate's and that is how you handle T'challa. Alot of cool things were mentioned Aneka (younger version) shout out to Wakandan design group, Shadow Physics, Possible separation of T'Challa from T'Chaka (Though i would of preferred them to mend the relationship Hickman so carelessly destroyed to forward his story) and having him move out of the long shadow cast. Kimoyo Updated (BADASS he needs to use this somehow in cosmic fights for knocking heads) and the best is outsmarting Galactus... All of this great stuff done in 2 issues. That is how you redeem T'Challa and make fans crave more of what you have in store for them as a writer.

The Black Panther movie has a screenwriter and may finally have a director. Now, onto the supporting cast (which may be the most difficult task since BP's supporting cast changes with each series).

Coogler I am hoping your talking about? I really am excited on who they will have as the supporting cast. They have already changed somethings on Klaw for instance so maybe they are gonna run with Hudlin's Retcon, which is good  because we might get Shuri atleast

Word I was checkin this out when it first came out. Wonder how this works out? If TChalla has the jump on Steve, there is no way that Steve can run him down. In a straight foot race, TChalla is faster than Steve anyway.In fact, I've seen instances wherein TChalla...on his own accord...went from standing perfectly still to accelerating beyond 60 mph with no help benefits etc., whereas Steve's TOP speed is 60 mph. TChalla moved so quickly that he seemed to vanish to the eyes of the Wakandan special forces trying to apprehend him.

(http://www.h2comics.com/images/black%20panther%201988%20set%20001.jpg)

But...this movie TChalla is not our current 616 established TChalla. He's still a PRINCE in Wakanda, and he isn't widely considered to be in the Top Three brains in MU...even though "officially" he's "only" the 8th smartest person in MU. And T'Chaka is still alive. T'Chaka and Wakanda [ where is SHURI? please let Shuri, S'Yan,  be there...revealed in his solo movies ] should have a major impact on TChalla ,the way that Odin and Asgard does on Thor.

Kevin Feige updates on the Marvel Phase Three films

The stage is set and the pieces are in place for the next collection of Marvel Studios movies within the Marvel Cinematic Universe and they’re prepared to hit the ground running with Captain America: Civil War this May, but after that come even more offerings with new corners of the world, and galaxy, set to be explored. Speaking with Empire (via CBM), Marvel Studios president and producer extraordinaire Kevin Feige opened up about the phase three films.

First up is Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 and the different versions of the team from the source material.

“There’ve been many different incarnations of the Guardians over the years in the comics and we’ll catch a glimpse of additions over the course of the movie.”

On Thanos and his presence, or lack thereof, in the “Guardians” sequel, Feige said.

“I wouldn’t look too hard in that movie for Thanos. The next time we see Thanos he will not be messing around. It will be, ‘Oh, that’s why they’ve been teasing this villain for five years!”

On the size of the upcoming Spider-Man movie, which has been teased as being “smaller” for some time.

“Smaller scale is all relative….It’s going to be as big and spectacular a Spider-Man film as has ever been made. But it’s a Peter Parker story and has more opportunity to be focused on the story of a 15-year-old kid going to high school.”

Regarding Thor: Ragnarok, Feige said that fans shouldn’t take that title to be a literal adaptation of the Norse apocalypse and that as fans have desired for so long, there will be very little Earth.

“I don’t think people will read into that title alone [regarding] what the movie’s going to be. It’s going to be, perhaps, as totally different from the two prior Thor movies as Winter Soldier was from the first Captain America. We want to take it to new places, we’ve got new characters that will show how big we’re swinging on this. And we have a Hulk… The film takes place within the cosmos primarily, which is to say, frankly, very little Earth.”

Finally, Feige spoke about Black Panther, which will star Chadwick Boseman in the title role and feature a “primarily African-American cast,” and have a connection to Avengers: Infinity War.

“This one is important,” Feige said. “It’s a big geo-political action adventure that focuses on the family and royal struggle of T’Challa in Wakanda, and what is means to be a king. T’Challa’s story is very important to us as it links to the next Avengers films, which is why we brought it forward.”

Marvel’s Phase Three currently includes Captain America: Civil War on May 6, 2016, Doctor Strange on November 4, 2016, Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 on May 5, 2017, their Untitled Spider-Man Film on July 28, 2017, Thor: Ragnarok on November 3, 2017, Black Panther on February 6, 2018, Avengers: Infinity War Part I on May 4, 2018, Ant-Man and The Wasp on July 6, 2018, Captain Marvel on March 8, 2019, Avengers: Infinity War Part II on May 3, 2019, and Inhumans on July 12, 2019, with three untitled Marvel Studios films set to premiere on May 1, 2020, July 10, 2020, and November 6, 2020.

The Black Panther looks great!

"T'Challa's story is very important to us," explains the Marvel Studios president.

Its release remains more than two years away, but fans of Marvel's Cinematic Universe already have reason to get excited about the studio's Black Panther movie, which will apparently prove pivotal for the larger mythology of the Avengers.

"This one is important," Feige told Empire Magazine in its 2016 preview issue. "Not only do you get an unbelievable lead character, but you also get all of [fictional African nation] Wakanda which is a whole new setting and culture to explore."

While the plot of Black Panther remains under wraps, Feige said that the movie will be "a big geopolitical action adventure that focuses on the family and royal struggle of T'Challa in Wakanda, and what it means to be a king." T'Challa, played by Chadwick Boseman, is the Black Panther's real name, with the "Black Panther" identity being a hereditary one passed from Wakandan ruler to Wakandan ruler.

More importantly for Marvel Cinematic Universe fans, however, is Feige's tease that "T'Challa's story is very important to us as it links to the next Avengers films, which is why we brought it forward."

Originally scheduled for November 2017, the movie has been rescheduled twice: initially to July 6, 2018, and then to Feb. 16, 2018. Avengers: Infinity War – Part 1 is scheduled to be released May 4, 2018.

How Black Panther will lead into Avengers is likely to remain a mystery until 2018, but it should be noted that a number of Infinity Stones remain undiscovered ahead of the announced "Infinity War." Could Black Panther's exploration of Wakanda include the discovery of one of the remaining stones? As all the best superhero stories would put it, to be continued ...

Very good point. I mean...TChalla ran down Sabertooth. Isn't Sabertooth possessed of SUPERHUMAN speed?

(http://static.comicvine.com/api/image/original/2571261-2179024_wolverine__052_011.jpg)

And here's that scan showing how TChalla flat out vanished on the Wakandan security forces and the Council, due to sheer speed. And this is WITHOUT the favor of TPG...in fact, with TPG operating AGAINST him.

(http://static.comicvine.com/api/image/original/2571275-1289776_panther03.jpg)


I mean...I showed this before, but...TChalla's reflexes are on par with or quicker than Spider-Man's. To be fair? Cap has clocked Spidey too, but not when Spidey is in full on Spidey Speed mode. Here is the difference:


Cap vs Spidey

(https://lowbrowcomics.files.wordpress.com/2015/05/captain-america-vs-spiderman-1.jpg)

In this fight during the first Civil War, Steve was handling S;pidey for real until Spidey came back and fought Steve "man...to Spider-Man".


T'Challa vs Spidey...in this conflict, Spidey definitely didn't get a chnce to vn the score up and unike with Spidey vs Cap...TChalla pretty much ended any hope of a competitive fight

Black Panther will feature majority black cast, is crucial to Avengers: Infinity War
The king of Wakanda has a big role to play.
(http://[url=https://cdn0.vox-cdn.com/thumbor/pDmEN1N2TmouyMER8PyFtZtASmg=/0x0:1280x720/960x540/filters:format(webp)/cdn0.vox-cdn.com/uploads/chorus_image/image/48472747/black-panther.0.0.jpg]https://cdn0.vox-cdn.com/thumbor/pDmEN1N2TmouyMER8PyFtZtASmg=/0x0:1280x720/960x540/filters:format(webp)/cdn0.vox-cdn.com/uploads/chorus_image/image/48472747/black-panther.0.0.jpg[/url])

Black Panther will be one of the last superheroes in the new wave of characters to get his own stand-alone film, but Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige says he's incredibly "important" to the future of the Cinematic Universe.

In an interview with Empire Magazine, Feige said that the main reason they decided to bring the story of Black Panther forward was because of how influential his character would be on the upcoming Avengers films, Infinity War — Part 1 and Infinity War — Part 2.

The executive also added that Black Panther would be the first Marvel film to feature a majority black cast. Feige touched upon bringing director Ryan Coogler (Creed) onboard and what that means for the film. He said that it was important they remained faithful to the comic and the character's origins.

"This one is important," Feige said. "Not only do you get an unbelievable lead character, but you also get all of Wakanda which is a whole new setting and culture to explore."

When it came to the character's placement in the Marvel Universe, Feige wouldn't offer any more information on just how Black Panther's storyline would affect the Avengers, but did provide a more in-depth look at what the character's solo movie will include.

"The movie is a big geopolitical action adventure that focuses on the family and royal struggle of T'Challa in Wakanda and what it means to be a king," Feige said.

Again, while Feige wouldn't say how Black Panther's storyline would be included in the Avengers films, having Wakanda as a new setting for the heroes to explore is interesting. Black Panther is the last film part of Marvel's Phase Three before Infinity War, which means that all of the Infinity Stones have to be found before the film is released.

Could the final Infinity Stone be found on the ancient planet where Black Panther reigns as king? It's definitely a possibility.

Black Panther's release date has been pushed back multiple times, and the film has suffered through casting changes and directors dropping out. Now, the film is scheduled to be released on Feb. 16, 2018, but it was originally supposed to be released in November 2017. The Avengers: Infinity War — Part 1 will hit theaters three months later on May 4, 2018.

Captain America: Civil War Directors Confirm Wakanda Scenes

(https://40.media.tumblr.com/b7d1bc47be8e6684ac6158042443f601/tumblr_o0nr2bLEvT1tgtdrfo1_1280.jpg)

During their panel at Wizard World New Orleans, Captain America: Civil War directors Joe and Anthony Russo were asked by a fan whether we would have scenes at Wakanda in the film. There was concern that Wakanda might not be introduced until Black Panther's February 16, 2018 solo film.  However, we received confirmation of Marvel Comics' fictitious country in the film in a very humorous way.

(https://40.media.tumblr.com/cf4dc28aae979d7cb9cadc27f65db61f/tumblr_o0nkqpc0vD1rlxcqoo1_1280.jpg)

Initially Anthony Russo told fans that they were not going to confirm any details about the film and that fans should rest assured that Black Panther has a big part to play in the film and has an "amazing arc".  However, in a bit of good-natured brotherly ribbing, Joe Russo jumped in to explain that Anthony's evasiveness typically means the answer is yes.  Joe explained, if the answer was no, then Anthony would've just said no. "If you're going to see Wakanda, we go, 'Listen, we can't tell you whether or not you're going to see Wakanda.'  [So]You're probably going to see Wakanda."

That suit looks better and better now that I see high-red pics of it. I kinda wish that they'd migrate a version of it into the comics now.

Here's an idea; since Marvel can't use Wolverine, they should shove a big middle finger (or claw) to Fox by giving this Panther suit those four Wolverine-like claws like Ultimate Panther had.

Here's an idea; since Marvel can't use Wolverine, they should shove a big middle finger (or claw) to Fox by giving this Panther suit those four Wolverine-like claws like Ultimate Panther had.

The problem with that is what I saw online when the pictures first shoes up:  BP was basically reduced to a Wolverine Clone.  For those who don't know the Comics and never will, it reduces BP to a clone.

OK, he auditioned for Captain America and now wants to play a Marvel villain but I think he'd make a pretty good Everett Ross:

John Krasinski i feel plays a more comedic role, not that he couldn't play a more serious role and maybe he does a great job at it (haven't seen 13 hours) but i feel he would be an excellent Everette Ross. Think about how he played the Character Jim Halpert on The Office, and i feel like he would make a good character like that rather then a villain

Dave Franco could work. I guess its also depends on how they want to portray Ross in the movie. Both either one of those guys would work. I really can't see John Krasinski playing a villain though, Doesn't have that look about him.

Some news from Collider. courtesy of CBR's Holt

This isn’t an origin story for Black Panther. He’s thrown into the middle of it.

– We meet T’Challa as a monarch/politician, not as a superhero.

– There is a Wakandan accent.

– On putting on the costume for the first time: “It’s hot. It’s blazing hot. Listen, it’s so hot. I’ve never been that hot before in my life, seriously.”

– Black Panther sees a fair share of action in the movie.

– Black Panther isn’t even a superhero in the mythology of Wakanda. “He’s a warrior, and it’s part of their tradition. It’s not like he’s like, “Who is that masked guy that’s doing this stuff?” Everybody knows it’s him, and they expect that it’s him, and they pray to God, or even praying to him in some cases, that he would do the things that he’s doing. Which is much different than most of the superheroes in which you don’t know their identity and you don’t know when they might show up. There’s an expectation that’s much different. So that’s the main difference.”

– Says Black Panther is “a tactician. He’s a strategist, so he appreciates that thought process. So it’s both sides.”

– Wakanda is known to the world.

– The character rules Wakanda, but since they’re not in Wakanda in this movie…

– They say that Boseman adds real gravitas to the role of Black Panther. He’s also “got a movement style that he brought because he has a background in martial arts and it’s fascinating. He moves like none of the other characters in the universe.”


And this from Realdealholy

– Black Widow has a tricky arc to track in this film, and Black Panther was tough too because he’s an outsider in the midst of a “family fight”.

– On balancing Black Panther’s role in this film with his upcoming solo film: “There’s still plenty of story that we still have great ideas for the standalone movie. But you get enough of it in this movie that I think you are going to be happy.”


– They had a lot of freedom with crafting Black Panther and didn’t have to worry about his upcoming solo film.

I'll be good when they confirm T'Challa bhas genius level intellect, something as simple as Stark making a comment to T'Challa about some of his tech and T'Challa schooling him on his understanding of Starks tech and showing own Wakandan tech he has created, knocking Starks ego down a few notches

Has Marvel ever released a list of who is the smartest, officially?  I mean, we've seen things say, Reed is number 1, Doom is number 2, I thought I read BP is number 4 (who is 3?), that kid who is the Hulk now is number 8 or 9.  But has there ever been an official list?


(Of course, you ever notice these lists don't include villains except for Doom.)


As far as BP schooling Tony in the movie; it would be fair turnabout, since the (Teen) Iron Man cartoon had Tony schooling BP in Vibranium.  (Tony was the one who figured out how to keep it from exploding, which is ridiculous.  I get fresh eyes can sometimes see something new, but that was so simple it was ridiculous.)  But it would surprise me to see Robert Downey Jr., willing to play that scene.

Very good observations, brother Kip. And I note that a lot of these lists leave out people like Professor Xavier [  correct me if I'm wrong but didn't X make Cerebro, among other things? ] and Peter Parker, too. I think Peter should be in the Top 20 big brains, for sure. Spider Trackers keyed to his Spidey Sense? That's sweet. Especially for a young teen.

Marvel would never make an official list of top brains. And yeah, such a list definitely should include the bad guys. Where does The High Evolutionary and The High Technician rank? Thanos? Galactus? The Supreme Intelligence? The Contemplator? The Celestial Madonna? The Watchers? Eternity? Odin? Zeus? Ra? Baast?

What about Loki? Pluto? Hades? The various Super Skrulls? The Shi'Ar super geniuses? The Mandarin, The Leader, Baron Zemo? Arnim Zola? Megatron? AIM's Supreme Scientist? Moondragon? Cypher? Warlock? Shuri? Shuri should be high up there. She's smart as hell.

You see where I'm going with this.


So nah...I don't see Marvel coming out with a hard and fast IQ thing. It's very. Very hard to make a straight comparison of intelligence anyway, because there are many forms of intelligence that aren't easily compared. How can you compare the megagenius of the Logical/Intellectual/Frontal Lobe Reed Richard with the Life harmonizing megagenius of Storm? Or the magic sync'd megagenius of Doctors Voodoo and Strange? Or the "I can do all the Intelligences at megagenius level" gifts of TChalla? Man of the Future Tony Starks may be fractionally less intelligent than Reed in the Logical/Intellectual area but he mobs all over Reed in the Interpersonal Intelligences.

And TChalla mobs all over both of them in every form of Intelligence that isn't Logical/Intellectual or Interpersonal...but he doesn't necessarily concede these two categories either. Imo TChalla is...going away...the most premier balanced megagenius of the MU.

And. For the love of Bast. Can we PLEASE stop underestimating Adam Brashear? Thanks.

It doesn't have to be this huge insult to RDJ. The scene could play out that Stark is talking to his team about Cap and he brings up some new tech he has created and its blowing over everyone's head as if he is speaking in a different language to them, T'Challa walks in, inspecting his work (maybe even Tony throws in he doesn't like people touching his stuff) then T'Challa replies to him complimenting on his work and then makes suggestions to how he can improve it or asks him how he is going to compensate for some type of error thats bound to come up when he uses said tech, Start stares at him for a moment, surprised that he knew what he was talking about and T'Challa tells him that he has already created a similar device before. Stark stares off for a couple seconds and then responds with a realizing "huh" seeing now what T'Challa is saying is true.

Simple, to the point and showcases T'Challa's genius level intellect without having to show him doing a lot.

Black Panther Civil Fights aka Captain America Civil War was an excellent example of how to use multiple characters without having to jobber anyone. The film was very good and what they did with T'Challa was excellent. What a live action debut for the Black Panther. Marvel and the Russo brothers nailed it but hands down it was Chadwick who was the star that shined the brightest with his breakout performance. Can't wait for everyone here at theHEF to see it so we can really talk.

I got to see this excellent movie a week earlier than you guys because I live in the UK and I'm really happy that you chaps are getting to see T'Challa in all his glory on the big screen.

Hopefully, Coates goes to see the movie as well so as to get a freaking clue as to how T'Challa and Wakanda should be properly presented.

Black Panther Civil Fights aka Captain America Civil War was an excellent example of how to use multiple characters without having to jobber anyone. The film was very good and what they did with T'Challa was excellent. What a live action debut for the Black Panther. Marvel and the Russo brothers nailed it but hands down it was Chadwick who was the star that shined the brightest with his breakout performance. Can't wait for everyone here at theHEF to see it so we can really talk.

That boi Holt

real talk

I got to see this excellent movie a week earlier than you guys because I live in the UK and I'm really happy that you chaps are getting to see T'Challa in all his glory on the big screen.

Hopefully, Coates goes to see the movie as well so as to get a freaking clue as to how T'Challa and Wakanda should be properly presented.

So I watched Civil war again with my wife and when T'Challa first showed up in his Microweave my wife leans over and asks "is that Black Panther?" I say yes then she smiles lol she may become a fan. Also when he unmasked himself after the Chase (rewatching that and noticed hebdidbt make a sound made it more badass especially in XD) people audibly gasp when they saw T'Challa. People gasped and whooted alittle when T'Challa would do cool stuff like his line to clint and him powering through widows stingers and people cheered at the mid credit scene one person throwing out thats badass...

Saw CIVIL WAR yesterday. It was very good, just like the hype says. I was worried because usually hype is the sweet palliative that gets you to accept garbage by overlooking the garbage.

But this was good. It was surprisingly good. Although it was too "spoiled" online, imo.

There is a issue I have with both the fighting style used as TChalla's dominant style and various things I saw with TChalla's fight with some of the main characters onscreen. However. There is no question that nobody beats TChalla either mentally or physically in this movie. And that was a real issue for me.

I thought that...no matter how good TChalla was depicted...some White dude was gonna KO him. That's how it usually goes in the movies. I was wrong and I give the Russo Brothers a lot more props as a result.

I also like TChalla's mentioning of Bast Sekhmet. Illness. It's historically correct, too.

Post by: Kimoyo on May 11, 2016, 07:35:45 pm
Yes, props to the Russos!  I love their attention to detail! 

S P O I L E R S!



For instance, when Bucky leapt down to the underpass to escape T'Challa he landed audibly, but when T'Challa landed there was no sound!

Also, before T'Challa captured Zemo, he was a good 3-4 feet away from him.  For the life of me I can't remember seeing him move, but he stopped Zemo from taking his own life even though he had gun in hand and was ready to pull.  They clearly committed to T'Challa's prowess!

Peace,

I'll be honest. Even though Ms Nyong'o is nice but it is almost as if she is the "go to" black actress, even though her resume is light in comparison to more established black women as actresses around her age range.

Each and every film she is "linked" too, always become some form of a minor supporting role where you barely would notice her.

I would rather have Nicole Beharie as Monica Lynne since she already has experience in playing next to Boseman. No to Nyong'o as Shuri. I just don't see her presence or range to be a character such as Shuri.

My review


1. The "Dora" was fine and I loved T'challa reaction

2. If you kill my parents even with "brainwashing", nah we ain't cool and Steve no bro just no.

3. If it wasn't for Spider-man and black panther, this movie would have been a borefest. We have to admit that the comedy was from Spiderman and the badassery was Black panther.

4. I need to get me that BP Lego set from Target.

5. Aunt May is hawt

6. Just hated how Crossbones died so soon and so easy.

Pretty much this up there^^^. Although I thought that Winter Soldier and Cap had plenty of badass moments. I like that Cap threw his shield to ricochet off of multiple soldiers etc more times in this movie than previously.

I originally thought of her as an ideal Shuri and still do but the thought of her being the love interest is very very intriguing and I would definitely appreciate that.  Danai Gurira could just as easily play Shuri.

I think T'Challa and his father had a serious argument over how Wakanda should have reacted to the Lagos Incident. T'Chaka went for diplomacy whereas T'Challa seemed to want 'shock and awe' but bowed to his father's wishes.

NEW LOOKS AT BLACK PANTHER, AND MORE IN CAPTAIN AMERICA: CIVIL WAR CONCEPT ART
May 24, 2016 Cooper Hood

It’s been over three weeks since Captain America: Civil War was released worldwide and based on how the box office has been, basically everyone has seen the movie at least once by now. With 12 super powered people appearing throughout, they all collided in the “splash page” airport fight. Ten of these people were characters we have met prior to Phase 3, but two of them were making their debuts in this film. Spider-Man and Black Panther have been fan favorites and scene stealers in the film, with a lot of us looking forward to seeing each of them again in their solo films.

The looks of both of these characters were nailed, and is a big reason why they were accepted so quickly. The Daily Superhero have published some photos from a recently released book, “Marvel’s Captain America: Civil War: The Art of of the Movie,” featuring the two new characters and some alternate designs for other characters as well. The concept art is in the gallery at the top of the article, and while some of it went unused, it is interesting to see the different directions Marvel was thinking about going in.

LONG time.

So I'm encouraged by the prospect of Lupita N'yongo as the love interest.

How 'Black Panther' Could Redefine Superhero Movies Forever

by Kit Simpson Browne,  June 13th, 2016

Now, Black Panther may not have had a whole lot of screen time with which to make his mark in this summer's Captain America: Civil War, but what time the Chadwick Boseman-played hero did have, he used to remarkably good effect. The young Wakandan royal — better known to his friends as T'Challa — has, it seems, gone from being a largely unknown cinematic wildcard to a veritable fan-favorite in the space of, well, about twenty minutes of screen time. That, however, may not be all the hero has planned in terms of defying expectation. Y'see, as it turns out... Black Panther's Solo Movie Might Just Be Set To Redefine Superhero Movies Forever For, as it turns out, three key reasons.

First up?

3. Black Panther Is A Strikingly Different Sort Of Hero To What We're Used To
Now, of course, a big part of Black Panther seeming unusual in a superhero context is the fact that, unlike the vast majority of heroes we've ever seen take to the big screen, he's not white. Now, there's a whole article (or thirty) worth of things to talk about there, with the lack of representation in the film industry being just one of the problems, but that isn't actually what I mean when I say "strikingly different." After all, with Civil War featuring three distinct, stereotype-free African American leads, and Black Panther looking set to do better still, we'll hopefully soon have little cause to be surprised to see well-rounded black heroes (and villains) in superhero movies.

Black Panther,though, is strikingly different from the heroes we're used to. The reason? Y'see, while Tony Stark may be a successful CEO, Steve Rogers a decorated veteran, and Natasha Romanoff a skilled field leader, T'Challa is, y'know, an actual king. As such, you're unlikely to see much more in the way of anger-driven antics from the Wakandan monarch. Instead, as in the comic books, Black Panther is likely to be calm, calculating and constantly one step ahead of everyone around him — just like his comic book counterpart. Which, in a world of hot-headed billionaire goofballs and irrational fear-fueled Batmen, might just prove to be a genre-redefining play on his part.

Speaking of which...
2. Black Panther's Role In The MCU Is Unlike That Of Any Other Hero
Y'see, T'Challa being the king of Wakanda isn't, it seems, going to be a mere biographical detail for the hero — something we hear mentioned as he trots about the globe, fighting generic bad guys in exotic locations. Instead, it's his full-time job. If Black Panther fights crime, it's as the king of Wakanda. If he opts to help Bucky Barnes, it's as the king of Wakanda — and Wakanda will have to deal with any consequences alongside him.

In other words? Unlike every other hero in the MCU (and, quite possibly, superhero movies everywhere), it's entirely impossible to separate the man — T'Challa — from the hero — Black Panther. Where Tony Stark can choose to opt out of wearing the Iron Man armor, and Cap can leave his shield and costume behind if he so chooses, T'Challa has no such option.

His greatest responsibility comes not from his costume, but from his role as king. Putting on a cat-themed mask is simply an extension of that — something we can expect to be reflected in his actions within the MCU in future.

And, finally...

1. Black Panther's Approach To The World Is Likely To Be Very Different To That Of Other Heroes
Specifically, don't expect him to spend much of his time hanging around New York City, and then hopping off on occasional expeditions to faraway nations. Where the likes of Spider-Man and Marvel's Netflix heroes are (much like the DCEU's Batman) very much tied to their home city, and the internationalist likes of Iron Man, Captain America and Superman are largely defined by the global scope of their focus, Black Panther looks set to take a very different path: One that leads to Wakanda, above all else.

As was pointed out above, T'Challa is a king first, and a hero second, and while his comic book counterpart has spent much of his time in New York (for various reasons), that doesn't seem likely to be mirrored in the MCU anytime soon. In fact, his one-time comic book liaison in the US, Everett Ross, looks increasingly likely to be deployed to Wakanda in 2018's Black Panther — something that took a while to happen in the comics.

Black Panther, then, may well prove to be the MCU's first truly "foreign" superhero


— one more focused on protecting his own country than on acting as an international peacekeeper or watching over his self-selected slice of New York City.

The big question now, though?

What do you think?

According to Yahoo!Movies, casting directors are now casting lead roles in the new Black Panther movie. Casting directors are casting the following roles:


According to reports, casting directors are now casting lead roles in the movie. The producers of the blockbuster Black Panther are getting ready to shoot the latest movie in the series and they’re now casting lead roles, stand-ins and background extras to work on the upcoming movie.

N’GASSI – Adviser to T’Challa, acting regent when he goes away on missions.

OKOYE – One of the former Dora Milaje, a ceremonial betrothed/bodyguard of T’Challa. Okoye is of the J’Kuwali tribe and acted as a traditional, proper concomitant to the king, speaking only to the king and only in Hausa, an African dialect not widely spoken in Wakanda and thus affording the king and his wives a measure of privacy.

QUEEN DIVINE JUSTICE – The street-smart queen of the Jabari tribe of Wakanda raised in Chicago, and former Dora Milaje (ceremonial betrothed/bodyguard) of T’Challa. She originally went by the name Chanté Giovanni Brown.

W’KABI – T’Challa’s competent second-in-command, completely loyal to his liege.

ZURI – A grumpy and gigantic elderly warrior. A close friend of the late T’Chaka, and one of T’Challa’s most trusted advisers.

REVEREND ACHEBE – A poor farmer somewhere in South Africa, Achebe sold his soul to the demon Mephisto. He is portrayed as a grinning, unpredictable, lunatic, warrior-mystic, regularly talking to his hand-puppet Daki with delusions that it’s truly alive, and engineering complex plots of social unrest for profit or entertainment.

ERIK KILLMONGER – A powerful warrior and strategic genius in politics and economics.

MALICE – Wakandan Mutate with superhuman strength, speed, and agility. She is a former Dora Milaje (ceremonial betrothed/bodyguard) of T’Challa.

MAN-APE – Ruler of the Jabari Tribe a recognized micronation within Wakanda’s borders. M’Baku was Wakanda’s greatest warrior second only to the Black Panther. He plotted to usurp the throne with the help of the outlawed White Gorilla cult who were ancient rivals of the Black Panther cult, which basically made them heretics since Panther worship is the state religion. Founding member of the “Pan African Congress on the Treatment of Superhumans”.

WHITE WOLF – T’Challa’s adopted elder brother and the former leader of the Hatut Zeraze, the espionage elite police of Wakanda. Exiled by T’Challa, due to using torture and assassinations in his zeal to root out potential threats to national security.

According to IMDB, Sarah Finn is the official casting director for the upcoming feature film. Sarah Finn Casting is known for casting some of the biggest movies in Hollywood including Avengers: Infinity War, Thor: Ragnarok, Spider-Man: Homecoming and Captain America: Civil War.

2018's Superhero Movies Ranked From Least To Most Highly Anticipated

2. Black Panther


Following a massive 2017, 2018 looks set to be even bigger. While many of the CBM releases remain a mystery, we know enough about them to figure out which you should be most excited about.

(https://s32.postimg.org/d1zpbrdmd/Black_Panther_1.jpg)

Quote
Arguably the best part of Captain America: Civil War, there are a long list of reasons to be excited for Black Panther, and it honestly has all the makings of being Marvel's best movie yet (a bold statement, but one which doesn't seem unrealistic). For starters, Creed helmer Ryan Coogler is directing, and that alone gives this one a serious advantage over every other superhero movie being released in 2018.

When you then take into account an incredible cast which already includes names like Chadwick Boseman, Lupita Nyong'o, and Michael B. Jordan, Black Panther is shaping up to have an even better ensemble than Infinity War, while Sebastian Stan possibly returning as The Winter Soldier here also helps give it an edge. Black Panther will take us deep into Wakanda, and if you're not excited about that, what's wrong with you?!

there gonna have to use camera tricks to make MJB appear as imposing as Boseman dude to Boseman's height

wonder if Killmonger will dawn the armor in Hudlin's run?

Or maybe full on lady service and have them fight shirtless tribal stuff lol.

I hope they play the really really slow game with Nakia. I hope she "dies" or "sacrifices" herself to save T'challa near the end (explosionof some sort?) but T'challa and company can't find the body and presume her dead. But, her body is found by Achebe and she feels betrayed by her King and becomes Malice.

Think BP 1 should focus on Klaw (assuming hes gonna help) and Killmonger.

BLACK PANTHER Co-Star Reveals First Plot Synopsis
by Chris Arrant, EditorDate: 25 July 2016

(http://i.newsarama.com/images/i/000/175/539/i02/black-panther.jpg?1469469995)

Marvel Studios confirmed several key Black Panther cast-members and their roles at Comic-Con International: San Diego on Saturday, and one of those actors revealed even more - the movie's plot - in a backstage interview. Lupita N'yongo, who is confirmed to play a member of the Dora Milaje named Nakia, outlined the central thrust of the 2018 film in surprising detail.

"I can say more than I could about Star Wars," the actress said when asked about her role in the movie. "I play Nakia, who is part of the Dora Milake - whom I presume you know is a special forces group from Wakanda. The story of this Black Panther - what I am allowed to say - is that Black Panther's leadership has been threatened by two foes who come together, and so Black Panther gets the help of the C.I.A. and the Dora Milaje to try and defeat the enemy."

"That's more than I thought we'd learn," said the Marvel.com interviewer.

"I know. Someone's going to fire me shortly," she replied. "I have to shut up now."

Nyong'o didn't specify the identities of the "two foes," but Michael B. Jordan was confirmed Saturday as playing traditional Black Panther foe Erik Killmonger, who star Chadwick Boseman outright confirmed as one of the film's two villains earlier in the same video. 

The leading contender for a second villain would likeky be Andy Serkis' Ulysses Klaue, who appeared in Avengers: Age of Ultron with a stolen cache of vibranium from Wakanda and who like his comic book counterpart, lost his hand in that film. Klaw of course is considered the comic book arch-villain of Black Panther.

You can watch the interview as it appears in this Marvel.com video around the 1:56:19 mark.

Black Panther is scheduled to open in theaters February 16, 2018.

klaw makes 100% sense if there is gonna be a team ups. Killmonger + M'baku or Achebe doesn't make sense.

Zemo is a wild card but I 100% doubt that.

You don't hire serkis for 5 minutes in AoU


CIA is obviously going to be Ross. I bet 'use' is a more apt description than "help" honestly.

Chadwick Boseman Explains Why the Black Panther Is Not the Magical Negro of the Marvel Cinematic Universe

Evan Narcisse

(https://i.kinja-img.com/gawker-media/image/upload/s--dYWDucDW--/c_scale,fl_progressive,q_80,w_800/wjpruunrkkdp6qjhgris.gif)

Chadwick Boseman thought he already had a sense of how significant the Black Panther is to the fans who love him. But it wasn’t until Saturday afternoon, while he was on stage at the Marvel Studios panel at this year’s San Diego Comic-Con, that he got hit with the full weight of the love and enthusiasm surrounding T’Challa. Those same fans are trying to help Boseman embody the role in the best way possible.

Before I sat down across from Chadwick Boseman this past Sunday afternoon, the mandate was made clear that this was an opportunity to talk about Captain America: Civil War (which comes out on DVD and Blu-Ray September 13), not tease out details of the yet-to-film Black Panther movie. That was okay, though, because I really wanted to ask him about the character and his continuing approach to Marvel’s first black superhero. In the conversation that follows, Boseman talks about how T’Challa’s popularity across the decades has catalyzed an energetic crowdsourcing.

io9: When did it first hit you how much this character meant to the fans?

Chadwick Boseman: Yesterday! Obviously, I know how important it is, particularly for people of African descent. In terms of seeing everybody’s response to it, all types of people have responded to me since Civil War came out. I’ll go certain places and they’ll come up to me and talk about the movie. But this is the first place where I’ve seen them all together—black people, Asian people, Latino people, middle-aged people, young people, old people… It’s something to see all in one spot. So, I’d definitely say yesterday was the first time it just hit me.

One of the things that makes the Panther different from other superheroes is that he’s the political and spiritual leader of an advanced, isolationist nation. How’d you go about getting into that kind of mindset?

Boseman: There are a lot of different things to pull from. You can look to all these different civilizations that existed in Africa. The Egyptians. The Mali, who are believed to have been a satellite nation of ancient Kemet. The Zulu. You can go so many different places. It could be Ethiopia, which went a long time without being conquered as well. So, just pulling from all those things and finding an attachment and a pride to them and then being very specific and doing my own DNA test and finding where I come from, what my ancestry is. Once you have the role, people want to give you things. People will reach out and say “hey, I want to train you” or “hey, I want you to meet this babalao who wants to read you.” I’m being approached with all types of things that have been helpful to the process.

That’s beautiful to hear, that people are just feeding stuff to you. What’s your favorite aspect of T’Challa from the comics?

Boseman: The thing that I like the most is him being challenged, taking criticism and finding a way to keep his focus and intent intact despite those criticisms. That’s what world leaders have to do. If you waver too much, if you give things away… sometimes you do have to give things away. You might give away something that you intended to give away to make it seem like you’re being accommodating. I think it’s that strategy and strength that I like. It’s not necessarily his physical attributes or anything like that. It’s his mind and being able to maneuver as a leader.

 
He’s a king so he doesn’t necessarily have to take feedback at all so that’s a good observation. What do you think prevents T’Challa from being a Magical Negro in Civil War? Part of the formula is there: he’s an otherworldly character who could be fixing these white folks’ problems [Boseman laughs].

Boseman: Well, he’s there for his own purpose. He’s not there… usually what happens is “well, he did this in this scene and now he’s doing [something else contradictory] and that doesn’t even fit the character.” That’s the Magical Negro thing. But, I think we were very cognizant about making a character that had his own through-line, his own intent and he wasn’t going to waver for anybody else’s story. Anytime that I felt like that was about to happen, I’d be like ‘nah, this is what he wants. You can do whatever you wanna do but this is what I feel like he needs to be doing.’ I feel like that’s the key. Sometimes… I won’t say more than that. I could go into the Magical Negro and talk about that forever but…. [laughs loudly]

I’m not gonna stop you!

Boseman: Nah, I think the main thing is just keeping it very clear that he has his own arc and his own things that he wants and desires. He only changes that when something strikes a chord at his core. It strikes a chord at what I think is his lineage and heritage and what he’s been taught, at what he’s been groomed to be. He can’t make that shift at the end of the movie unless he’s been groomed to make that shift already. And even though we don’t see that grooming, that’s actually the first glimpse into Wakanda before you see that tag at the very end.

Okay, I have a weird ask and you can turn it down if you want. I have two favorite lines of dialogue from the comics…

Boseman: Noooo, I’m not going to say them in the accent! [laughs loudly] I promised myself I wouldn’t do that.

I have a follow-up, then! Do you have a favorite moment from any of the material that you’ve read so far?

Boseman: Hmmm, wow. Let me think, because there’s a lot of different stuff. One of the moments was when he traps into his ancestral realm and all of the ancestors are standing around and they’re panthers…

So I have to stop you because one of the lines I was going to have you read was from that same exact scene. [turns laptop to show screen]

Boseman: I love that moment, mainly because before I’d even read that series—I’d read the Reginald Hudlin versions and the Kirby series…

Damn, you read the Kirby? I’m a lifelong Black Panther fan but that is some hard reading in 2016.

Boseman: Well, you have to read it, right? There was a book that had all of them collected. But that specific image of those panther ancestors came to me before ever seeing it. So, when I saw it in the book, I was like “Oh, wow.” I didn’t have the role yet but that image already manifested in my head.

It taps into something primal, particularly for black folks. It’s ironic how the creation of two white dudes taps into a collective desire of what we want our ancestry and our present to look like.

Boseman: I think that’s the reason that people react so strongly to the character.

Agreed!  T'Challa would "use" the CIA rather than elicit their help. 

Achebe, Hunter and QDJ?  CJP's influence is indisputable!  Please Coogler, don't have a child save T'Challa from Killmonger!!!  We want a BP delivered beatdown!

Peace,

The Black Panther Director Knows Wakanda Needs to Be ...

(https://i.kinja-img.com/gawker-media/image/upload/s--rW32_u00--/c_scale,fl_progressive,q_80,w_800/gsl21rcaucrgikhxidry.jpg)

We know Marvel’s Black Panther movie has a great star. We know the filmmaker is capable and his supporting cast is, frankly, one of best Marvel movies’ finest. What we don’t really know, however, is what the film is going to look or feel like.

At San Diego Comic-Con, we spoke to Ryan Coogler, the director of Black Panther, to find out a bit about his vision for Wakanda. He admitted it was still something they’re working on.


“That’s a hard question to answer man because we’re still trying to figure that out,” Coogler told io9. “What I will say is obviously Wakanda has to be impressive and it has to be unique and that’s one of the things we’re looking at right now. That’s one of the things we’re working with my production designer, Hannah Beachler, to try to find. Trying to find out what Wakanda is, what Wakanda looks like and how that relates to the relationship with the other technologically advanced cities that we’ve seen before in film. We’ve seen a lot of those recently. So that’s one of the biggest challenges right there.”

yes, pleeeeaaaaaaaaaaaaaseee stay faaaaaaar away from the movie Mr. Coates, and I hope Coogler does not make Panther the movie that introduces homosexual characters to the MCU. I don't want to see those beautiful black actresses playing lesbians. Angela Bassett doing the gay thing in American Horror Story and Viola Davis in Get Away With Murder is enough. Hopefully Coogler has not gotten influenced by Hollyweird yet.

So I watched Civil war again with my wife and when T'Challa first showed up in his Microweave my wife leans over and asks "is that Black Panther?" I say yes then she smiles lol she may become a fan. Also when he unmasked himself after the Chase (rewatching that and noticed hebdidbt make a sound made it more badass especially in XD) people audibly gasp when they saw T'Challa. People gasped and whooted alittle when T'Challa would do cool stuff like his line to clint and him powering through widows stingers and people cheered at the mid credit scene one person throwing out thats badass...

Title: Re: The Black Panther Movie!!!
Post by: True Father 7 on August 03, 2016, 07:42:52 am
I'll be honest. Even though Ms Nyong'o is nice but it is almost as if she is the "go to" black actress, even though her resume is light in comparison to more established black women as actresses around her age range.

Each and every film she is "linked" too, always become some form of a minor supporting role where you barely would notice her.

I would rather have Nicole Beharie as Monica Lynne since she already has experience in playing next to Boseman. No to Nyong'o as Shuri. I just don't see her presence or range to be a character such as Shuri.

Nicole Beharie is the biz and I would love to see Monica Lynne in the movie but we know that's pretty much not going to happen

I'm pretty sure Kilmonger will be a friend of T'challa that commits treason allowing Klaw to get a one up on T'challa in which he will have no choice need outside help and Kilmonger learns the errors of his ways too late before being double crossed by Klaw as well.

BLACK PANTHER Co-Star Reveals First Plot Synopsis
by Chris Arrant, EditorDate: 25 July 2016

([url]http://i.newsarama.com/images/i/000/175/539/i02/black-panther.jpg?1469469995[/url])

Marvel Studios confirmed several key Black Panther cast-members and their roles at Comic-Con International: San Diego on Saturday, and one of those actors revealed even more - the movie's plot - in a backstage interview. Lupita N'yongo, who is confirmed to play a member of the Dora Milaje named Nakia, outlined the central thrust of the 2018 film in surprising detail.

"I can say more than I could about Star Wars," the actress said when asked about her role in the movie. "I play Nakia, who is part of the Dora Milake - whom I presume you know is a special forces group from Wakanda. The story of this Black Panther - what I am allowed to say - is that Black Panther's leadership has been threatened by two foes who come together, and so Black Panther gets the help of the C.I.A. and the Dora Milaje to try and defeat the enemy."

"That's more than I thought we'd learn," said the Marvel.com interviewer.

"I know. Someone's going to fire me shortly," she replied. "I have to shut up now."

Nyong'o didn't specify the identities of the "two foes," but Michael B. Jordan was confirmed Saturday as playing traditional Black Panther foe Erik Killmonger, who star Chadwick Boseman outright confirmed as one of the film's two villains earlier in the same video. 

The leading contender for a second villain would likeky be Andy Serkis' Ulysses Klaue, who appeared in Avengers: Age of Ultron with a stolen cache of vibranium from Wakanda and who like his comic book counterpart, lost his hand in that film. Klaw of course is considered the comic book arch-villain of Black Panther.

You can watch the interview as it appears in this Marvel.com video around the 1:56:19 mark.

Black Panther is scheduled to open in theaters February 16, 2018.

The CIA help is likely Everett Ross, He isn't really going to be much help, probably the equivalence of Priest's Ross. I wouldn't be too worried, given the interviews Coogler really want to get this right and show why Wakanda is such a badass place to be and why it can stand on its own

There is a reason Feige talked to the people he did. Ava, Gray, Coogler. None of them are gonna chump. Feige knows he can't do that, the backlash would be incredible.

Nothing surprises me, Blade "needed" Whistler, Django "needed" the dentist, Panther will probably "need" Ross.  As long as they get the Dora Milaje right and I can hold my head high taking my girls to see it I'm cool. All the history since Priest introduced the characters it would suck for them to take aspects of the characters from the last 4 months of Panther books. One question though, what happened to Florence Kasumba who with 4 words in Civil War practically stole the whole movie from every other actor?

Bucky is supposedly confirmed for infinity war

which means he has to be unfrozen eventually....

and in other could be relevant news

no infinity stone in GoG, meaning the last two have to show up in Strange (very likely), Ragnorak, BP, or IW....

new details on the script from Joe Robert Cole

“First, I think Chadwick did a phenomenal job in Civil War in setting the tone for him being a king, for the nobility,” Cole said. “At the end, I thought his turn was fantastic and how he rose above his own vengeance. I think that was a great introduction to him.

Our standalone movie will begin shortly after Civil War ends. So we’ll be able to see him mourning and him starting to take command as king of his own nation. Lots of things are going to occur within regards to that. The country will be under threat from inside and out so we’ll learn what Wakanda is, that nation, as the most technologically advanced nation on the planet. Also, as Wakanda’s rise to prominence happens, it will affect the MCU moving forward which is really exciting.”


So excited. From the inside and outside... gotta be killmonger and klaw right? Unless they use "generic CIA" as the threat from outside.

Incredible Marvel Video Shows How VFX Brought Black Panther To Life In Civil War

http://youtu.be/2vIZh8k8CnI (http://youtu.be/2vIZh8k8CnI)

The VFX focus for this new video is Black Panther, possibly because he was one of the elements of Captain America: Civil War that we had not seen previously. While we certainly knew that even Black Panther's (comparatively) simple costume benefited from CGI work, it's remarkable to see just how much of it really was. While there was a suit, that we see clearly here, it's missing much of the detail of the final version. All of that was added digitally.

The other intriguing thing to look at is how much of the environments were created via computer. It's so easy to assume that the skyline and horizon you're looking at must be real, because why in the world would they not be, and yet, we see here that quite often a sequence that appears to have been created outdoors was not.

Black Panther Motherland

The working title of Black Panther has officially been coined as ‘Motherland.’ Of course, the name clearly alludes to the story of Black Panther and its focus on Wakanda. The fictional country is often referred to as the hero’s motherland, so does this mean the film will similarly hone in on the African nation?

Well, yes - but we already knew that.


(http://media.comicbook.com/2016/07/blackpanthermovie-191922.png)

The cast and crew behind Black Panther have been open about the film’s focus in interviews. Chadwick Boseman (T’Challa/Black Panther) told Yahoo! Movies the film will depict the hero’s origins.

“You’re going to learn about Wakanda, its culture, its traditions, the past,” he said. “You can go through all the comic books and know that there’s more Panthers that have existed in the past - that’s origin.”

Director Ryan Coogler also talked about the film and said the standalone will start shortly after the end of Captain America: Civil War. He told /Film that fans will see T’Challa mourn the loss of his father and explore his new powers as Wakanda’s king.

"Our standalone movie will begin shortly after Civil War ends. So we’ll be able to see him mourning and him starting to take command as king of his own nation. Lots of things are going to occur within regards to that. The country will be under threat from inside and out so we’ll learn what Wakanda is, that nation, as the most technologically advanced nation on the planet.

Shuri makes more sense... i dont see how you put QDJ in a movie that is already going to be very busy due to her very complicated back story.

Her acting seems to be on point. Whatever the role is, she and several others had to audition for it, so she must have some skills.

I'm also not sure on how QDJ would fit this story, but if I had to guess what role she would play, it would be that first, then Shuri.

Indeed, I immediately thought QDJ at first.

The IG post from her agent isn't a 100% confirmation, but I seriously doubt he would use a post that has Shuri's picture randomly like that.

Unless he's trying to misdirect people...which is kinda silly, as he could've simply posted something that didn't have a specific character that wasn't casted yet.

New Look At Wakanda From Captain America: Civil War VFX Video
Jay Jayson- 11/13/2016

Imagine Engine, a Vancouver-based visual effects studio, was hired by Marvel Studios to create that stunning establishing shot of Wakanda. Their artists were given just five weeks to make a photorealistic Wakandan jungle, featuring mist and fog wafting through a vast canyon, "sheer cliffs, rock pinnacles, waterfalls, a thick jungle canopy and a monumental panther statue."

The panther statue was sculpted (computer-generated) to appear as though it was made of vibranium, the fictional and nearly-indestructible material used in Black Panther’s superhero-suit and Captain America’s shield.

“If you go too polished and too refined for a sculpture it diminishes its scale,” explained Image Engine visual effects supervisor Robin Hackl. “Our lead lookdev artist Adrien Flanquart was responsible for a huge component of this shot. He established the shading characteristics and the scale of the cracks and displacements of the panther, illustrating that this sculpture was in fact 500 feet tall, not just 40 feet tall.”


Check out Imagine Engine's VFX breakdown of Wakanda in the video below.

Black female production designer, dreaming up the sets and visuals for the upcoming Marvel flick Black Panther.

(http://s2.r29static.com//bin/entry/c8f/x,80/1682146/image.jpg)

Hannah Beachler grew up in Centerville, Ohio the daughter of an interior decorator mother, living in a house built from the ground up by her architect father. So she knew from a young age that she was destined for an aesthetically-driven career, eventually believing she would land in the world of fashion. But she had no idea that one day she'd end up as Hollywood's only high-level black female production designer, dreaming up the sets and visuals for movies like Creed, Beyoncé's Lemonade music video, and the upcoming Marvel flick Black Panther.

Back at work with her Fruitvale Station and Creed colleague Coogler, Beachler has been working day-and-night for months on the sets for the comic book-inspired Black Panther, which will hit theaters in 2018. "My son told me, 'Mom, you better not mess this one up!" Beachler says. "He’s like, ‘I’ll never speak to you again if you embarrass me in front of all of my friends!' No pressure at all."

Forest Whitaker Praises Marvel's Black Panther Director
Jay Jayson- 12/29/2016

Academy Award-winning actor Forest Whitaker (The Last King of Scotland) produced Fruitvale Station, the critically-acclaimed 2013 film that was written and directed by Ryan Coogler, so he was more than happy to join the cast of Coogler's upcoming Black Panther solo film and be directed by his former protégé.

“I’m excited to do it. I mean I think Ryan’s an amazing filmmaker,” Whitaker said during The Empire Film Podcast (via SR), while promoting Rogue One: A Star Wars Story. “I’ve got a chance to know him since college, so I’m excited to see what it’s like to be working with him on the other side, not as a producer but as an actor cause that’s how we started with Fruitvale Station.”

Whitaker will portray Zuri, an elder stateman in Wakanda.

Well the water explains why it was so darn misty in the Wakanda sneak peak. But...."Why's there so much water, period?"

I wish more writers would bring back/stick to the surrounding Techno-jungle. It was always such a cool concept.

Agreed. And give Wakanda some scale. Show it as having hundreds of miles in land coverage and with a population of tens of millions.

Incidentally, there are very FEW actual jungles in Africa. It's mostly plains and deserts. While there are a few lush ones, in places like DRC, foggy jungles like what was shown in Civil War and the concept art are more of an inland South American thing.

Well, it depends which version of Wakanda we are going for.  Some versions are that it's a hidden nation; hard to do that if you're huge.  Even the purely isolationist versions work better with a smaller land area nation since it is often depicted of being surrounded by other nations on all sides.

According to various sources, Black Panther will start production in Atlanta, GA on January 15, 2017 and will use Pinewood Atlanta Studios as its home base while filming in Georgia.

New Batch Of BLACK PANTHER Concept Art Provides Us With An Amazing Walkthrough Of Wakanda

At midnight, Marvel's Phase Three preview was officially released online, meaning we've just received a ton of new concept art for Ryan Coogler's upcoming solo Black Panther movie! Come take a look!

With Black Panther only kicking off production a few short weeks ago, it's not surprising that the art Marvel provides isn't all that revealing, but they still give us a pretty solid walkthrough of the Wakandan streets and possibly previews a few of the locations we may or may not see come next February.

Black Panther features:

Director: Ryan Coogler
Chadwick Boseman as T'Challa/Black Panther

Samuel L. Jackson Is Upset That He Won’t Be In Marvel’s ‘Black Panther’

(http://okp-cdn.okayplayer.com/wp-content/uploads/2016/07/beginners-guide-to-game-of-thrones-from-samuel-l-jackson.jpg)

Marvel’s upcoming Black Panther film has a great cast of black actors and actresses. But when the film hits theaters in 2018, Samuel L. Jackson won’t be there – and he’s not happy about it.

Jackson has been the most notable black actor in the Marvel Universe, portraying Nick Fury in films like Captain America and Avengers. He told We Got This that he was upset at not being involved in the film.

“I asked them, ‘So you’re doing Black Panther and the only black character in the Marvel Universe is not showing up?’ And they’re like, ‘Nick Fury is not in Wakanda!’” Jackson said. Wakanda is the fictional African country that T’Challa rules and protects as the Black Panther patriarch.

“How can he not know the other black superhero on the planet?” Jackson continued. “How the hell does that work? But they just said, ‘No you’re not in that one.’”

I know that I can't be the first or only person to think that Letitia Wright is SHURI. I am pretty sure that I saw that speculation here awhile ago. As for Phylicia Rashad...hmmm. Who could she be? She has to be somebody's mother. I really have no idea. Perhaps an original character that Coogler created? What about the school matron of The Midnight Angels? The one overseeing Ayo and ole gurl during World of Wakanda?

Letitia Wright could also be Monica Lynne. I really don't want Monica to be in this story, but...it's almost a sure shot that she will be in there, somewhere.

Black Panther: Letitia Wright Confirmed as Shuri

By Cooper Hood

(http://screenrant0.imgix.net/wp-content/uploads/2016/10/Letitia-Wright-Black-Panther.jpg?auto=format&cs=tinysrgb&q=20&w=1000&h=500&fit=crop)

During Disney’s CinemaCon presentation last night, they highlighted every film on their current slate and gave brief updates/teases on each. With Black Panther in production, they put up a graphic showing their star-studded cast with their character names. Thanks to a photo of this from Ain’t It Cool’s Eric Vespe, it has been confirmed that Letitia Wright will be playing the role of Shuri, the younger sister to T’Challa.

Wright playing Shuri has been speculated for some time, but this is the first time Disney has confirmed this is the case. Wright is a newcomer to Hollywood, but she is poised to be a breakout star next year, thanks to Black Panther and a major role in Steven Spielberg’s Ready Player One. With a cast as big and as talented as this one, it is unclear at this stage just how big of a role Shuri will actually have in Black Panther. Even if she does not have a major role in the first Black Panther movie, she could become a more prominent character in subsequent installments.

I have looong thought the same. I just can't see ANYTHING that Christians In Action with their famed incompetence can hope ot bring to Wakanda...except comic relief that would speedily degrade into comprehensive repellent disgust. Followed even more swiftly by WAG high tech ass whoopery.

Given the heavy draw from Priest era I am guessing that it's going to be way less "help" from the CIA then what we think. Ross will likely be like he was in Priest run, to shed light on what people thinking of Africans as the stereotype then being completely blown away by how off their thoughts are.

(https://19818-presscdn-pagely.netdna-ssl.com/wp-content/uploads/2af/9e/9622b2785a80a010-e1489790589817.png)

“Black Panther” follows T’Challa who, after the events of “Captain America: Civil War,” returns home to the isolated, technologically advanced African nation of Wakanda to take his place as King. However, when an old enemy reappears on the radar, T’Challa’s mettle as King and Black Panther is tested when he is drawn into a conflict that puts the entire fate of Wakanda and the world at risk.
In case that wasn’t enough information for you, cast member Lupita Nyong’o gave Screenrant the most detailed plot synopsis we’ve gotten to date.

“The story of this Black Panther is—what am I allowed to say?—The story is that the Black Panther’s leadership is really threatened by two foes who come together, and so Black Panther gets the help of the C.I.A. and the Dora Milaje to try and defeat the enemy.”

WTF? Why does he need the CIA to handle a Wakandan problem? Here we go again. I'm getting a bad feelin' that the Black Panther is gonna have some kind of comic relief CIA buddy in this movie. Ross and T'Challa the new Lethal Weapon.

I have looong thought the same. I just can't see ANYTHING that Christians In Action with their famed incompetence can hope ot bring to Wakanda...except comic relief that would speedily degrade into comprehensive repellent disgust. Followed even more swiftly by WAG high tech ass whoopery.

Unless. T'Challa becomes the Coates T'Chumpa in this movie...

Given the heavy draw from Priest era I am guessing that it's going to be way less "help" from the CIA then what we think. Ross will likely be like he was in Priest run, to shed light on what people thinking of Africans as the stereotype then being completely blown away by how off their thoughts are.

The above was my first thoughts and first hope. Especially with the deleted scene in CW. This one, here:

And Coogler has way more cred with me thus far than Coates does. I still hold out hope for Coates and S2. I do. Call me a glutton for punishment combined with a perpetual optimist.

The movie can give BP fans wish-fulfillment as far as getting the kind of Panther that we currently do see in the comics. But if some one were to see the BP movie and saw the badassery of T'Challa, how would they feel if they  looked for BP comics and found Coates' unsatisfactory offering? I know I would be disappointed in finding a Black lead hero in a major movie reduced to a chump in his own book.

Farce Push and all.

Marvel surprisingly showed off some test footage of BP at an event.

Seems like it was mostly of the DM and people were psyched.

Also this paragraph has me stoked about the production value...

Spoiler (click to reveal)
Not all of what we saw of the Dora Milaje combat — we also got to see them presiding over a kaleidoscopic yet solemn ceremony to crown a new, untested king. That scene was a distinct diversion from the film's palette: a bold, contrast-heavy black & white world punctuated with dabs of reds and golds. All the gravity afforded a royal saga is in the designs, including tech and architecture — jagged but fleet flying machines and glittering, steely spires — and it all fits the mood of majestic mystery.

"The story's just gonna be very honest and grim," director Ryan Coolger says in the sizzle. Nyong'o adds: "The main thrust is tradition vs. progress, and the issue of secrets."

“I’m super excited about an African king who is also strong enough, fast enough, smart enough to do some of the things that T’Challa is going to do in this film,” director Ryan Coogler said in a sizzle reel for his third film, which follows on the critical and commercial success of Fruitvale Station and Creed.

Lupita...

Spoiler (click to reveal)
One of the first scenes we saw depicted Lupita Nyong’o doing what she told me she was most excited to do when I spoke with her at the Toronto International Film Festival: kicking some butt. Nyong’o plays Nakia, a fierce warrior and member of the Dora Milaje, Black Panther’s elite retinue of female bodyguards. Clad in a drab olive cloak, Nakia sneaks up on unsuspecting soldiers wielding assault rifles and beats them to a pulp quickly and quietly while their compatriots shoot at the darkness. The best part was actually an unscripted accident: when Nyong’o executed a combat roll to hide behind a jeep, part of her cloak got stuck on the car and she had to extricate it like nothing happened. She acquitted herself nicely and it made for a very useable take that may well wind up in the final film.


Ceremony..

Spoiler (click to reveal)
he film’s elaborate costumes were on display in a series of scenes depicting members of the Dora Milaje and other Wakandan officials trekking to Warrior Falls, the ceremonial site where the King of Wakanda is coronated. Performing traditional Wakandan dances on a boat–which is, in truth, the facade of a boat on a studio backlot surrounded by blue screens–the assembled actors were decked out in brightly colored robes, ceremonial armor, and vibrant tunics that look like they’re straight off the page.

his best look in the trailer was in his ceremonial garb as he approached Warrior Falls for his coronation as King of Wakanda. Bare-chested, T’Challa had panther-like markings on his pectoral muscles, shoulders, and back as he slowly approached a woman wearing pristine white robes. The woman was flanked by tiers of other Wakandan officials and VIPs imperiously staring down at T’Challa as he performed a brief ritual and bowed before the woman.


Ross/Klaw better description...

Spoiler (click to reveal)
The footage presentation ended with a particularly tense scene set in a casino. T’Challa and members of the Dora Milaje are spying on the villainous Ulysses Klaw (Andy Serkis) and his goons, who are meeting with Everett Ross, the Deputy Task Force Commander for the Joint Counter Terrorist Center. (You may remember him, as played by Martin Freeman, from Captain America: Civil War.)

“You’ve brought quite the entourage,” Ross remarks to Klaw. “You got a mixtape coming out?” Clearly these remarks don’t wind up going over super well with the smuggler because the next scene is a full-on firefight in the casino with T’Challa taking cover behind an overturned table. Something tells me that this is going to wind up being a bonkers set piece that sets some of the film’s major conflicts into motion. After all, where there’s Klaw, there’s shady dealings pertaining to vibranium afoot!


Interesting... does Ross...

THANK BAST FOR COOGLER!!!

People who are solely fans of Coates wack version of T'Challa are in for a treat...and UnFans are going to be all in their feelings.

I've long felt that Black Panther is going to shatter peoples expectations both in terms of who the character is and what he's capable of but also preconceived notions of Black People, especially those from the African Continent.

Also, the characters fight giant rhino-mechs, Lupita wears cannon blasters on her hands, and I’m pretty sure I caught Danai Gurira’s character flirting with another member of the Dora Milaje. If this is what the future of superhero movies looks like, deal me in.

Ramonda is rumored to be stunning visually.

All constumes were rumored to be stunning.

Coogler praises T'challa like he deserves.

IF IF IF the rumors are true about Coogler getting slightly more control than others (ie, being able to bring in his own "team" instead of using the Marvel house team for things), this could lead to other directors getting slightly more control as well and the "house" style being more fluid.

Of course, Coogler has to finish the movie and then the editing first hahaha

might be getting ahead of ourselves but all news about black Panther from the second he was announced to be in the movie have been 100% positive so... no reason to stop now!

Spider-Man: Homecoming is July 7th.

D23 is July 14th

SDCC Hall H panel is July 22 (birthday!)


It is one of those weekends for sure.

If I had to guess.. they leave Spidey alone, debut the trailer at D23 but behind closed doors only (its not released), and then release it at SDCC and online simultaneously.

I see it playing out this way too.

The D23 footage will likely be a sizzle reel similar to what the journalists got to see the other day. The footage at SDCC will likely be a teaser trailer, concept art, interviews, and maybe a scene from the film.

Hopefully when the real T'Challa shows back up in the comics he'll be rocking a beard.

Chadwick and Marreese look like they're in incredible shape. Look at their lean faces. Look at the expression in the eyes.

Marreese Crump is much better then the choreography he's been given to play with [ even when he's the choreographer ], and he's chilled with some real GOAT level fighters before. Anderson "The Spider" Silva comes to mind. Marreese also is the only person to completely physically outperform Tony Jaa on film, during their fight scenes. To those of us who are trained fighters? We could see crystal clear that Crump would serve Tony in a real throwdown.

Know who's missing here? Michael Jai White. Know who crafts better fight scenes than Crump? Michael Jai White. Know who'd MOLLYWHOP Crump in a scrap? Michael Jai White. Know who we need to see more of? Michael Jai White. Ijs

You’re Not Ready for Black Panther’s Stunning New Spin on Superhero Movies

By Kyle Buchanan

(http://www.slate.com/content/dam/slate/blogs/browbeat/2017/04/21/black_panther_will_look_refreshingly_unlike_any_other_superhero_movies/18chadwickblackpanther.w710.h473.jpg.CROP.promo-xlarge2.w710.h473.jpg)

Louis D’Esposito, the co-president of Marvel Studios, grinned as a group of journalists sat down in a Disney screening room Monday night. “The first thing you’ll be seeing,” he told us, “is Lupita taking out some bad guys.”

The executives at Marvel Studios are known for playing their cards close to the vest, but every so often, when you know you’re sitting on a winning hand, you can’t help but show off. That’s why the studio summoned reporters to the Disney lot in Burbank to tease several of the movies coming from Marvel’s wildly successful cinematic universe, including Thor: Ragnarok, Spider-Man: Homecoming, Ant-Man and the Wasp, and Captain Marvel. Aside from a full screening of Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, by far the biggest sneak peek the studio offered was an extensive look at Black Panther, which wraps filming in Atlanta tomorrow and is due out February 16, 2018.

As we watched dailies of Oscar winner Lupita Nyong’o ably somersaulting through a Black Panther action sequence, D’Esposito beamed. While the fight choreography was straight out of the Marvel playbook — you could imagine Scarlett Johansson’s Black Widow going through many of the same motions — as Nyong’o flung herself into the scene with steely commitment on her face and a vivid green shroud wrapped around her body, the footage carried with it an undeniable X factor. That’s exactly the sweet spot the studio hopes to hit with Black Panther: The film has to be familiar enough to fit into Marvel’s ever-expanding cinematic universe while also offering enough spark to jump-start its own singular franchise. A tricky task, but to judge from some of the stunning things that D’Esposito and his colleagues showed off last night, it looks like Marvel is on the right track.

Directed by Ryan Coogler (Creed, Fruitvale Station), Black Panther picks up the story of T’Challa (Chadwick Boseman) after his well-received introduction in Captain America: Civil War. As he comes to grips with the death of his father, the former king of their African nation Wakanda, T’Challa must return home and succeed him. Despite the presence of several strong allies in T’Challa’s corner — including Angela Bassett as his mother, Queen Ramonda, and an all-female group of elite bodyguards known as the Dora Milaje — he soon finds that it’s not easy to be a head of state and a superhero at the same time, especially when the nation is threatened by several villains including the dangerous Erik Killmonger (Michael B. Jordan).

Coogler was wooed for months by Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige before he accepted the Black Panther directing gig; in part, I’ve heard, because Coogler wanted to be sure he could put his own personal stamp on the film. Many of the Marvel movies are shot, composed, and edited by the same in-house people, but Coogler wanted to bring over several of his own trusted collaborators, including co-writer Joe Robert Cole, composer Ludwig Göransson, and cinematographer Rachel Morrison. (Indeed, with Black Panther, Morrison becomes the first woman to shoot a film in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.)

That unique sensibility appears to have paid off. Black Panther doesn’t look like any of the other Marvel movies, and it shouldn’t if it wants to pay proper tribute to the impact of the first black superhero in mainstream American comics. Let’s start with the costumes by Oscar nominee Ruth E. Carter, making her Marvel Studios debut. Whether T’Challa is spending his downtime in a dashiki or the Dora Milaje are marching in warrior suits of rich brown and gold, Carter has found a remarkable way to merge centuries of African culture with the particulars of superhero pop. I died and came back to life when I saw the first footage of Angela Bassett as Ramonda, the actress resplendent in a shimmering honey robe with an enormous headpiece that would send every Sunday church lady home to start over. Let’s be honest: If Angela Bassett is your mother, you’re beginning the superhero sweepstakes on third base, but T’Challa will still have his work cut out for him to earn any attention next to Bassett’s queen at her most fierce.

Then there’s the fictional setting of Wakanda, which trades the prosaic metropolitan cities of most Marvel movies for something exciting and new. T’Challa’s wealthy nation strikes a balance between high-tech futurism and verdant nature, suggesting an African grassland where technology can enhance what the earth gives us instead of plundering it. We saw dailies and concept art of an African tech castle with a driveway filled by sleek airships, a glowing Vibranium waterfall, a futuristic Wakanda Design Center where T’Challa goes to visit his sister Shuri, and a shot so striking — T’Challa, deep in the forest, regarding an old tree draped with a dozen panthers — that it’s been painted as a mural in one of the studio’s most highly trafficked hallways.

Still, the most exciting thing about the way Black Panther looks is who it presents as powerful. At a time where too many superhero movies are led by blandly handsome white men named Chris, Black Panther celebrates a cast made up almost exclusively of dark-skinned black actors, most of whom rarely get to headline a live-action movie of this size despite their more-than-evident talent. If the movie succeeds on the worldwide scale of most Marvel entries, it will refute the notion espoused by many Hollywood executives that black films “don’t travel”; more importantly, if it’s a creative breakthrough that launches a new mythology and coaxes underrepresented audiences to dream bigger, it could become a black Star Wars.

Also, the characters fight giant rhino-mechs, Lupita wears cannon blasters on her hands, and I’m pretty sure I caught Danai Gurira’s character flirting with another member of the Dora Milaje. If this is what the future of superhero movies looks like, deal me in.

http://www.vulture.com/2017/04/black-panther-marvel-kevin-feige.html?mid=twitter_vulture (http://www.vulture.com/2017/04/black-panther-marvel-kevin-feige.html?mid=twitter_vulture)

Let Kevin Feige Get You Even More Hyped for Black Panther

"It’s the highest-class cast we’ve had on a first movie."- Kevin Feige

So, you’re excited for Black Panther, and why wouldn’t you be? Marvel’s unusual new superhero movie comes out early next year and follows Captain America: Civil War scene-stealer T’Challa (played by Chadwick Boseman) as he returns to rule his home country of Wakanda. It helps that he has some formidable allies in his corner (including several fierce women played by Lupita Nyong’o, Danai Gurira, and Angela Bassett) as well as a super-suit to don when things get too dire, but he’ll need all that and more when going up against the villainous Killmonger (Michael B. Jordan) and a host of eye-popping adversaries, one of which is a giant rhino-mech.

There’s clearly a lot to look forward to here, and Marvel executives know it: When they opened the doors of their studio to press last week to tease Marvel’s upcoming slate of movies, the Ryan Coogler–directed Black Panther got by far the biggest push even though it only wrapped filming a few days ago and won’t be out until February 18, 2018.

“I’m not sure we’ve ever shown raw dailies before,” Marvel Studios head Kevin Feige told me a few days later. So what is it about this movie that has Marvel willing to jump the gun?


“I think it’s two things,” said Feige. “Black Panther is a huge part of the Marvel Comics mythology, and has been for 50-plus years. Other than his awesome, relatively brief appearance in Civil War, his history has been relatively untapped.” And with a cast comprised of Oscar winners like Nyong’o and Forest Whitaker, big TV stars including Gurira and Sterling K. Brown, and even Get Out breakout Daniel Kaluuya, Marvel has assembled a stacked group of performers ready to bring that world to life. “Every day, seeing that cast come together … it’s just amazing,” said Feige. “Across the board, it’s the highest-class cast we’ve had on a first movie.”

It’s also a validation of the investment Marvel made in Boseman almost three years ago, when the studio announced that a Black Panther movie was on its way and that the Get on Up actor would be starring in it. “You always like your instincts being validated, and Chadwick was the first choice for us,” said Feige. “He was the only person we ever talked to about the role, and one of the highlights of my career was calling him out of the blue on a speakerphone with [Civil War directors] Joe and Anthony Russo and our executive producer Nate Moore, who’s now executive producer of Panther. I said, ‘Have you ever heard of Panther? Would you want to play him?’”

All that said, the thing had Feige most excited about Black Panther was the opportunity to mix things up with Marvel’s 18th movie. “It’s really exciting that this part of the universe is so unbelievably diverse and looks unlike any of the other films that we’ve made,” he said. “The cast looks different than any of the other casts that we’ve had. Both in front of and behind the camera, it’s almost entirely people of color, which I think is a special, important thing, and one of the reasons the film will be unique and as great as I think it’s going to be.”

It also features Angela Bassett in a stunning gold headpiece that could give Cate Blanchett’s Hela antlers a run for their money. For some moviegoers, that may be reason enough to buy a ticket. “She’s awesome,” laughed Feige. “There’s no doubt about that.”

Cobb student with brain tumor gets visit from ‘Black Panther’ star
Ben Brasch  The Atlanta Journal-Constitution
12:42 p.m Monday, May 1, 2017


(http://www.ajc.com/rf/image_large/Pub/p8/AJC/2017/05/01/Images/20170425_134934_3884x2430.jpg)
Chadwick Boseman, star of the upcoming "Black Panther" Marvel movie franchise, made a surprise visit to a Cobb County student-fan. Left to right: teacher Alisha Smith, student Ian Hopgood, Boseman and paraprofessional Kendrick Love.

“The coolest day ever!”

That’s how nine-year-old Ian Hopgood described Friday after the surprise visit by his favorite actor Chadwick Boseman, according to Cobb schools.

Boseman is the star of the first solo “Black Panther” movie, which is being filmed in Atlanta, more than 50 years after the African superhero hit the pages of Marvel and become a member of The Avengers franchise.

“I just want to hug you for now,” Ian told Boseman upon seeing him at The HAVEN Academy at Sky View.

Then Ian moved onto more pressing matters: “Can you give me some plot details on the upcoming ‘Black Panther’ movie? I love you.” Ian was diagnosed in October with a brain tumor on the back of his head. The tumor has affected his vision, speech and mobility.

Boseman — who played James Brown during the “Get On Up” biopic and Jackie Robinson in the film “42” — signed several Black Panther gifts and action figures for Ian.

“I was left speechless,” Ian’s mother Kara Anderson told the school system. “There are no words to describe his generosity ... This is a lasting experience that Ian will use to get him through upcoming challenges.” The district said Ian and his mother will move to Seattle before the end of the school year where a grandmother and uncle will support them while going to a nearby children’s hospital. A GoFundMe campaign has been started to help with Ian’s care.

Ian’s teacher Alisha Smith and a paraprofessional, Kendrick Love, helped the Black Panther stalk his prey before striking. Boseman chilled with Ian along with students and staff for more than 90 minutes.
It makes sense that the Black Panther would be comfortable in a school, considering the character was a part-time school teacher at one point.

The movie’s director is Ryan Coogler and features a cast including “Creed” star Michael B. Jordan, Forest Whitaker, Lupita Nyong’o, “The Walking Dead” cast member Danai Gurira, Daniel Kaluuya, Winston Duke and Florence Kasumba. The film is due out in February 2018.

Avengers: Infinity War Casting Call Hints at Black Panther Connection
By Cooper Hood
(http://screenrant1.imgix.net/wp-content/uploads/2017/05/Black-Panther-Infinity-War.jpg?auto=format&cs=tinysrgb&q=20&w=1000&h=500&fit=crop)

Chadwick Boseman will lead his own solo franchise starting next year, but a connection to Black Panther and Wakanda appears to have been revealed for Avengers: Infinity War. Boseman previously debuted the current Wakandan king in Captain America: Civil War, and it will be his solo film that is the final MCU installment before the mega team-up. To this point, there has yet to be any indication that Black Panther will heavily set up Infinity War, but that does not mean that the timing isn’t perfect for the projects to connect in some way.

Backstage has revealed a casting call for stand-in roles on Infinity War. The listings are for a female with a dark complexion between the ages of 20-49 with a shaved head, as well as for multiple African-American males between the ages of 21-49. With Black Panther recently wrapping, this may be evidence of Wakanda and Black Panther on the Infinity War set.

The female description could be a match for Danai Gurira’s Okoye, but could also be for a variety of different actresses. The looks for Lupita Nyong’o’s Nakia or Letitia Wright’s Shuri have not yet been made public and the age description does not help narrow a search. In either instance, this casting call confirms that audiences will see much more of Wakanda shortly after Black Panther ends. As for who this stand-in will be for, it may only be future set photos or celebrity sightings that indicate the other cast members who will be joining Infinity War.

One of the male stand-in roles is surely for T’Challa, but with multiple roles being requested, it could point to other Black Panther cast members also appearing. Will Erik Killmonger turn good and allow Michael B. Jordan to reprise his role? Or, could this call be for Sterling K. Brown or Daniel Kaluuya? These are all options, but so is the possibility the other stand-in roles are just for background actors and extras. Again, it will be up to future reports to reveal who exactly will feature in these scenes.

With Black Panther’s world set to be integrated into Infinity War, it shows just how massive this film will be. Earth as a whole will already be at stake, and with Asgard, the rest of the cosmos, and now Wakanda at the Russo brothers’ disposal, there will be hardly any time to rest during the film’s runtime.

I heard the Black Order will be in IW movies so it's possible BD will fight BP, but let's face it, visually it will be BD vs the Hulk.
Blasphemous garbage! Hold your tongue! Seeing T'Challa dance around a giant killing machine would be badass so nit take that away with such talk

Just remember an early issue of RH's BP.  How does BP beat Apocalypse?  He gets Black Bolt to do it.  Or remember how does BP plan to beat Galactus according to McDuffie?  He uses the Hulk and the Wakandan air Force.  Being the shrewdest fighter means knowing when to fight by proxy!

New synopsis for Black Panther from Licensing Global:

"After the events of Marvel's Captain America: Civil War, King T'Challa returns home to the reclusive, technologically advanced African nation of Wakanda to serve as his country's new leader. However, T'Challa soon finds that he is challenged for the throne from factions within his own country. When two foes conspire to destroy Wakanda, the hero known as Black Panther must team up with C.I.A. agent Everett K. Ross and members of the Dora Milaje, Wakanadan special forces, to prevent Wakanda from being dragged into a world war."

World War Wakanda!

We gonna start taking bets on who bites the dust in this movie?

Is Nakia doomed... to return as Malice later?

(can we kill off Ayo just to prevent any future shennanigans?)

Killmonger falling down Warrior Falls to his apparent death no death?

Man Ape taking a dagger to the heart?

I would personally say Ayo because she isn't even a good character. As Okoye, and Nakia are 100x better characters and Ayo is a cliché.

I think they should keep kilmonger alive. Too many villains die off with little development and it would be nice to have another Loki like villain around, someone who gets depth and stays for a bit hell I'll take Klaw if he eventually turned into pure sound and became an avenger level threat

If Killmonger dies as he should Coogler's not going to mess it up. This film is going to be narratively superior to everything Marvel has done before. Man-Ape has a lot of potential. Duke's Dominic from Person Of Interest was an amazing villain.

I think Killmonger will be his Vegeta.

I think Nakia will be his Talia.

I don't think MBJ or Lupita are going away anytime soon.

It just wouldn't make proper business sense otherwise.

I could see Ayo or Okoye though.

They inherently have an awesome contrast ala Goku/Vegeta, but with T'Challa being the king and Killmonger ironically being the tall guy lol

It'd be great to see them having to begrudgingly team up to take on a greater threat in movie 2 or 3 and Erik being on some "Your life is my birthright to take T'Challa, I wouldn't allow some cretin filth from another planet to rob me of that glory!"

And T'Challa is on some "Um, thanks dude.  I think  ???"

By all rights, T'Challa should absolutely SMOKE Killmonger. I mean...SMOKE HIM. Killmonger should have never. Ever. Been remotely a threat to TChalla. My TChalla? Would pimp slap Killmonger off top. While beating Reed Richards in a game of Supreme Strategy. And Outmaneuvering Doom on the international and magical combat stage. And composing a "I love you but I ain't no sucka" poem for Ororo scripted with astral fire and Reality Spangles. And harpooning Namor. And stopping the freaking Secret Empire with a phone call. And collabing with Shuri as to whether or not to kill all the freakin Ghudazi who were responsible for creating Rape Camps in Wakanda [ as no born Wakandan would ever think of such a thing; and yeah, that's my way of explaining away Coates' repulsive repugnant Rape Camps while not altering one iota of continuity ]. And thanking Josiah X for standing in for him during various matters of import to Wakanda [ all of his poor showings under TNC ] while the REAL TChalla outmaneuvered everyone in Secret Empire, got his getback on Maximus of the Inhumans, prepped to defeat The First Reality, and allat stuff.

No One's Gonna Be Disappointed in 'Black Panther', Says Angela Bassett; Describes Cast as "Magnetic"
May 23, 2017Brooklyn Wallace

Coming in 2018, the Marvel Cinematic Universe will be spending a little bit of time on Earth, for the first stand-alone film featuring Black Panther. The movie has a cast to be envied by any production, with Chadwick Boseman, Michael B. Jordan, Danai Gurira, Lupita Nyong’o, Patricia Rashad, and Angela Bassett. With all of the excitement surrounding this cast fans could be getting nervous that the movie itself would be a letdown. Bassett, who plays the queen mother Ramonda, in a recent interview with TooFab, made an assurance that this is not going to be the case.

It seems like there’s a vast wide audience of people who are eagerly anticipating the arrival of Black Panther at the top of the new year. I had a fantastic time and no one’s gonna be disappointed.

Of course, no actor is going to come out and say that their upcoming film is anything less than spectacular, but it is always nice to see the people involved in a project to be excited. We haven’t seen anything from Black Panther, which has wrapped filming, yet, but the action in Wakanda is sure to set it apart from the rest of the MCU. In fact, Bassett assures us that she had a simple goal in mind, as she was filming. When asked on whether the queen mother would kick-ass along with the rest of the film’s warriors, she said:

You know, in some way. I don’t know if it’s the way you’d most expect but I certainly went into set every day with that on my mind: Kick plenty!

While Marvel has been criticized over the past year for the whitewashing of Asian characters and traditions, the studio has filled Black Panther with an amazing cast of people of color. While the African setting of Wakanda is expected to be amazingly beautiful, the cast will be, as well which Basset continued to tease:

It is just a beautiful sight. It’s a lot of strength and balance and beauty and I’m just thrilled by getting to work with Danai and Lupita and actresses and brand new faces across the diaspora, it was beautifully cast. It’s going to be quite a sight and I think it’s going to be magnetic.

We can’t wait to see this amazing cast in action, but there is still a little more than nine months to go. Black Panther premieres February 16, 2018. Until Marvel gives us more to talk about, are you still hyped for this magnificent cast?

Well, Martin Freeman DOES have a history of playing "ordinary guys caught up in extraordinary events" (see: Bilbo Baggins, Arthur Dent, and arguably John Watson) , so I would assume a certain amount of humor, yeah.

He will likely be the, "lets introduce Wakanda to this character so we can tell the audience without boring exposition" character as well.

He works fine as comic relief. ANd he is really good at it.

Let's take it to the real side, yo.

I hope that Marreese Crump DID NOT do the fight choreography. He is not the choreographer you want IN CHARGE of the fights we need to see in BLACK PANTHER THE MOVIE.  He would be very good at teaching Chadwick fighting movements, fitness, etc. From what I've read? It SEEMS like the action is being held by way more experienced and qualified second unit directors than Crump  [ currently ] is, so that is a relief.

But I would like to see some Crump Funk when he's blossomed into a formidable second unit director himself.

Until then? Keep outshining Tony Jaa...https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=a16bmz2dfiw (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=a16bmz2dfiw)

For me, Its the plot i Care about more personally, I of course want a good fight scene but its the Plot and how everyone interacts with T'Challa that i want them to make sure of. Action of course is very important because its an action movie. But At this moment and time, i dont honestly have any worries about the movie. Just like Cap CW, before the trailers came out and after the trailers came out, i just had a good feeling T'Challa would look good.

I posed this question some months ago in CBR:

What happens when MCU Shuri is introduced as this youthful sassy energetic young girl that captures the hearts of audiences in the same way that Ms Marvel and revamped Batgirl had, as a complete contrast to this always so serious, "pragmatic" T'Challa clone in the comics? 

Wouldn't that be exciting?  :)

Coates has devalued Shuri just as much as he's rape camped T'Challa of everything that made his character and attendant mythos relevant.

Sadly, there are some who lap up Coates derivative pablum with much enthusiasm.

Anyone down with Coates take on the BP mythos is complicit with the devaluation of said mythos.

Black Panther Confirmed For Avengers: Infinity War Role With Set Video
Megan Peters- 06/07/2017

It’s official: Black Panther will make an appearance in Avengers: Infinity War. The massive Marvel blockbuster went into production earlier this year, and work has yet to slow down on the feature. Stars like Robert Downey Jr. and Tom Holland have been busy with the film, and it looks like yet another star is now caught up in its orbit. Chadwick Boseman is now on the set of Avengers: Infinity War, and he is ready to drag his claws out.

Taking to Twitter, Boseman posted a short video from the set of Avengers: Infinity War which confirms Black Panther’s role. “Here we go…” Boseman captioned the clip.In the video, fans are shown a brief shot of the Avengers: Infinity War set. A trio of chairs are shown which boast the names of Steve Rogers, Natasha Romanoff, and finally T’Challa. A hand drum can be seen sitting in front of Boseman’s seat, and fans are wondering if the set is part of a scene in Wakanda.

(https://pbs.twimg.com/ext_tw_video_thumb/872604712318648320/pu/img/DxuksVp6zu-Y2Uv4.jpg)

With the Black Panther on-board, the hero adds yet another body to the massive cast Avengers: Infinity War boasts. Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana, Dave Bautista, Pom Klementieff, Vin Diesel, and Karen Gillan have all spoken out about their role in the film. A stand-in model for Rocket was also seen on the film’s set. As the for the Avengers, the whole gang is expected to return for the film, and set videos of Scarlet Witch and Vision recently hit the Internet.

You can check out the first synopsis for Avengers: Infinity War below:

“As the Avengers and their allies have continued to protect the world from threats too large for any one hero to handle, a new danger has emerged from the cosmic shadows: Thanos. A despot of intergalactic infamy, his goal is to collect all six Infinity Stones, artifacts of unimaginable power, and use them to inflict his twisted will on all of reality. Everything the Avengers have fought for has led up to this moment - the fate of Earth and existence itself has never been more uncertain.”

Avengers Infinity War is described by Marvel Studios as the culmination of everything in the Marvel Cinematic Universe since Iron Man in 2008. The movie is filming now under directors Anthony and Joe Russo, from a screenplay by Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely.

The expansive confirmed cast includes Robert Downey, Jr., Chris Evans, Chris Hemsworth, Mark Ruffalo, Jeremy Renner, Scarlett Johansson, Tom Holland, Elizabeth Olsen, Paul Bethany, Sebastian Stan, Benedict Cumberbatch, Benedict Wong, Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana, Karen Gillan, Vin Diesel, Dave Bautista, Bradley Cooper, Pom Klementieff, and Josh Brolin as the villain Thanos. Avengers: Infinity War and its as-yet-untitled sequel are filming back-to-back for a May 4, 2018 and May 3, 2019 release, respectively.

As for the Weave, It looks less detailed then the first, But i like the addition of the spikes on the shins so im good :D


Worse, genetics  :-\ 

Best I can do is the Penny Hardaway chinny chin chins with some struggle sideburns if i don't "shave" for months.

All i ever wanted was the Denzel in training day goatee but 16 years later and i'm still waking up to smooth-faced depilated disappointment  :-\

DAMN YOU GENETICS!!

My bear grows fast enough that i have the facial hair but slow enough that i dont need to shave again 5 min after shaving :D

I'm still beaming that my 'T'Chadwick' dubbing stuck from way back.. but after this trailer, I can't help but think Creedmonger... or Handsome Erik lol

The chicks at screenjunkies openly admitted hormones were raging once MBJ popped on the screen, which made me realize people (dudes) either bring up Creed when it comes to him or people (girls) treat him like dudes treat Megan Fox.  Erik will forever now be a seventeen magazine heartthrob boxer

As for the shirtless scene, the warrior falls scene and the coronation scene will cover it.

As for Cap marvel, I think people would scream they are trying to sexualize Carol of they did that most likely

Stop the trailer around the 1:25 mark when Creedmonger is attacking T'Chadwick.  T'Chadwick looks big (pause) as fuk! 

Plus it looks like MBJ will be doin the unbuttoned chest out fabio outfit thing for half the movie at least.

Marvel, continuing their progressive trend of awkward for men/great for women gender role reversal sexualization in film!  We should applaud such... waitasecond  :o  Should we men feel outraged and sexually (pause) exploited?  ???

So, this is either a flashback with Tchalla vs Killmonger as "who is the greatest warrior and becomes black panther" thing or this is the end of the movie and this is the climax.

with all the tribal elders there... this is T'challa becoming BP or cementing himself as king and bp in a trial by combat

I hope its the latter... great way to get around the suite. "Fine, I don't need the suite, trial by combat at warrior falls MOFO"

hype factor further increased

and yeah. Tchadwick looks jacked. Where is Dboi at?

It would be cool if that was the finally climactic battle between the two of them. It would definitely be different from other super hero movies and it would establish that T'challa doesn't need the suit to be powerful. Man i am really hoping that this is the last fight now, because that would  just be epic

Contemplation. Reflection. Meditation. All were required before commitment to words. In my room I sat, quiet, alone with the aural reality of Run the Jewels embedded in the incessant repeat of something I thought I would only see etched on the canvas of my imagination. It was said to be one minute and fifty two seconds yet somehow minutes turned to hours, hours to days and all sense of time was abandoned. I don't know how long. I don't know how many times. I don't care. All I know is I'm back and the world has changed.

Did you hear that sound? The jewels runneth with the panther.

The BP movie needs to keep getting praise for the type of Panther that people want to see. We need to keep pushing that narrative, that MCU BP is light years better than MU BP.

We keep up that narrative and give Marvel something to think about when it comes to the next BP solo which hopefully should be coming soon. True BP fans don't want a mopey chump king like we're getting under Coates.

There's a humorous state of emergency thread on the DC Comics CBR forum asking what will be DC's answer to what might be an awesome Black Panther movie. with 300+ posts.

I had nothing to add to it, as i'm on a brief self imposed sabbatical from my usual long winded Geoff Johns slander about his attempted assassination and disenfranchisement of the honorable Johnathon Stewart.  Figure I'll wait for some officially casting news before I return back to midseason form.

Nevertheless, it was amusing the way they put Cyborg and Captain Marvel in the same category of having no chance to match Black Panther and Wonder Woman, respectively.  Amusing, bc Victor and Carol do pretty much have the same sh*tty solo sales, sh*tty villains, boring supporting cast (need superheroes from other franchises to be their bffs) and same disinterest from comic readers by n large, don't they?

The worst part of it is, they HAD a bankable minority superhero they could use as a headliner without looking like they were ripping off BP.

But thanks to some SERIOUS mishandling of the property, they don't own Static or the rest of the Milestone universe anymore...

I remember watching that show as a being around 12 and I enjoyed it alot. It was a show about someone who was African and I could relate to, I liked that he was a black kid that was trying to do the right thing and balance his home life with Super hero work. That was very poor on DC part to lose static, the show was Good too

Actually I'd say Carol is in MUCH better position than Cyborg. At least with Carol she has a really dedicated female fan base that really championed her getting a solo film. When that Cyborg film was announced nobody cared, black folks as a whole just shrugged.

DC needs to leave that quest for their "black" answer to Marvel alone and focus on Aquaman, Flash and really fleshing out JLA and the GL Corps. Worry about Cyborg and Vixen after you got Superman and Batman straight.

Ultimately I think that is the only but significant difference.  Carol has a vocal minority of supporters.  Cyborg has tumbleweeds.  Cyborg is only here because of circumstance tied to Green Lantern politics.

Really, the big thing is that, regardless of comic fandom, Carol can be made to look like a more mature Supergirl on a 100 milly budget to the general public.  The question is whether ppl will care.  I guess they will, bc the MCU has their track record that says ppl will.

Comparatively, what will Cyborg look like that will capture the disinterested imaginations of the general public?  It'll have to be one creative as hell story, or he would have to upset Aquaman as the breakout star in this Justice League movie, but i don't see that happening.

Nevertheless, it was amusing the way they put Cyborg and Captain Marvel in the same category of having no chance to match Black Panther and Wonder Woman, respectively.  Amusing, bc Victor and Carol do pretty much have the same sh*tty solo sales, sh*tty villains, boring supporting cast (need superheroes from other franchises to be their bffs) and same disinterest from comic readers by n large, don't they?

Actually I'd say Carol is in MUCH better position than Cyborg. At least with Carol she has a really dedicated female fan base that really championed her getting a solo film. When that Cyborg film was announced nobody cared, black folks as a whole just shrugged.

Ultimately I think that is the only but significant difference.  Carol has a vocal minority of supporters.  Cyborg has tumbleweeds.  Cyborg is only here because of circumstance tied to Green Lantern politics.

Really, the big thing is that, regardless of comic fandom, Carol can be made to look like a more mature Supergirl on a 100 milly budget to the general public.  The question is whether ppl will care.  I guess they will, bc the MCU has their track record that says ppl will.

Comparatively, what will Cyborg look like that will capture the disinterested imaginations of the general public?  It'll have to be one creative as hell story, or he would have to upset Aquaman as the breakout star in this Justice League movie, but i don't see that happening.

Cyborg is f*cked in Justice League. Just to be blunt about it.

Batman is Batman.

Wonder Woman is Wonder Woman.

Superman is Superman while going through an obvious ressurection-bad guy-turned by Lois-heroically kick Steppenwolfes ass type of arc.

Aquabro is the groups Drax in GOG1. Hilarious quips, Alpha, Kick Ass and love it persona. Basically turned Aquaman to Namor  and beat Marvel to it.

Flash is going to for sure have that one, FoXmen quicksilver moment that steals the show for a bit. On top of being "quirky funny guy"

so that leaves Cyborg to........

.....

teleport? stand in awe of batman? bad cgi? shoot some stuff?

Pretty much this.

as he stands right now, there is no role for him to fill other then the overly CGI guy, Even the trailer made him look underwhelming as he didn't stand out any or capture interest, he was just kinda "There" and that was it. I dont see this as doing anything for him other then confirming that Cyborg is boring. Hell he may even turn into the new Aquaman, you know, that one that everyone made fun off and thought was sh*tty

But will they do that? I mean basically he would have to have the same charisma that Beast boy and cyborg had in Teen Titans. Given DCU current dark and gritty mindset i don't have much faith cyborg will gain traction.

DC needs to leave that quest for their "black" answer to Marvel alone and focus on Aquaman, Flash and really fleshing out JLA and the GL Corps. Worry about Cyborg and Vixen after you got Superman and Batman straight.

DC has screwed over their Black characters.

Bronze Tiger
Amanda Waller
Vixen
John Stewart
Mr Terrific
Cyborg

All of them have exciting backstories and yet DC continually screws them over.

This further compounds why swapping out Martian Manhunter for Cyborg was a bad idea.  J'onn doesn't need a solo and could've just been their CGI background character used or (not used) to their heart's content.  But that would've meant John Stewart stepping up to the limelight to add a non-porcelain skinned member to the final team... and well... yea. 

As it is now, the movie appears to crowded.  Cyborg will be a great bus driver to teleport them places and will have some stellar emo lines when they first ask him to join.  But i'm not being a fancy emo bus driver will capture the hearts and minds of viewing audiences

Some months back the director made a comment that Cyborg is essential to the story or something.

I was like

"No duh, who else is going to chauffeur Batman to Apokolips and back?"

Unforunately Rhodey only exists to prop Stark.

Cyborg should be is own thing. He isn't a legacy character. And he could be cool with some changes design wise.

But then they stuck a 20 year old kid around a 40 year old grumpy bilionaire, a grown ass alien, and 1000 year old demigod, and a atlantean king. (and whatever they are doing with flash)

WTF is he going ot talk abotu with them? what does he bring to the table other than teleporting?


if only he was apart of a different team... of younger heroes... possibly teenagers..... hmmmm are any of those around?


And if only there was another minority hero who could take his place... someone who can stand next to aliens and gods and not be out of place... someone that has power levels to match... possibly someone that was in cartoons a bunch when the coveted market was in school....

Yea dude i saw that bullshiit too, I think they also threw in Hickman's TRO as well (not saying people shoudn't read it, but you don't put an event story ahead of the groundbreaking Series that the MCU Panther is based on, 98% of the cast is based from, and is what set the stage for this great BP we are getting. That And Hudlin's WiTBP was lower then it should of been too.

#1Client
#2 WitBP

( think people want to play being "woke" so they say sh*t like Coates story is the number 1 story to  read when his sh*t should be down buried deep with Mayberrys Garbage

I'd say it belongs beneath Mayberry's run.

At least in Maberry's run you could recognize T'Challa as being T'Challa. We all enjoyed parts of his story at times.

I don't know who the hell that is running around in Coates book....Maybe King Solomon's Frogs are back and they replaced our T'Challa with some sucka from an alt timeline where T'Challa listened to way too much Drake when studying abroad.

lol right, i don't know nor want to know what or where this list came from but how is The Client not the #1 must read on any BP must read list for the movie?

Who introduced the Doras to the mythos?
Who created Nakia, the prominent Dora in the movie?
Who created Okoye, the 2nd prominent Dora in the movie?
Who used T'challa as a king first, super hero second?
Who created the vibranium weave, one of the defining characteristics of the movie character?
Who created the claws?
Who updated the character away from the noble negro trope?
Who created Ross?
Who made Killmonger into a cunning, smart villain (updating from McGregor)?
Who separated the BP title from King?
Who made it so T'challa the king had to control and appease the various tribes of Wakanda that don't get along?
Who first showed us the weight of the crown?


But naw, Coates run gave us prominent Ayo and Aneka (3 and 4th on the Dora list in the movie who were thrown in as a afterthought) and...... shiny buildings (which is Stelfreeze anyway)?

Hell Hudlin gave us Shuri, gave us an unconquered line of kings with the title passing down for centuries (instead of a costume conveniently left by Tchonda lol), he changed Klaw to a more menacing, human character, aged up the Doras and made them less sex symbol, more elite fighting bodyguard... yet no one talks about his contributions.

But Coogler makes one comment about Coates when asked and fanboys jump all over it.

We are living in a Black Panther world...

(http://media.comicbook.com/2017/06/black-panther-comic-con-poster-1004495.jpg)

While there was plenty of Black Panther goodness in the debut trailer, a new Comic-Con poster actually provides the best look at the mask yet.

Fans are starting to see Black Panther posters pop up around the San Diego area in preparation for San Diego Comic-Con. The latest features a close-up on the character's upper frame, including an updated mask that features much more detail than the one seen in Captain America: Civil War.

There's a silver embellishment on the forehead, with several silver accent lines on the sides and around the eyes as well. The action moves quickly in the trailer, so these might be more subdued in the actual film. He could also get an upgrade at some point later on.

Of crouse, it could just be a special rendering for the poster, but either way, fans are likely to find out more at Comic-Con.

Boseman recently shared his first reactions to seeing the trailer to Jimmy Kimmel.

“It was so exciting,” Boseman said. “I literally, for like three minutes, was like, ‘oh my gosh.’ Just staring at the screen and then I cut my phone off because it was too much stimulation.”

Black Panther currently has a 4.03 out of 5 on ComicBook.com's anticipation rankings, and you can submit your vote here. The official description is listed below.

Marvel Studios’ “Black Panther” follows T’Challa who, after the death of his father, the King of Wakanda, returns home to the isolated, technologically advanced African nation to succeed to the throne and take his rightful place as king. But when a powerful old enemy reappears, T’Challa’s mettle as king—and Black Panther—is tested when he is drawn into a formidable conflict that puts the fate of Wakanda and the entire world at risk. Faced with treachery and danger, the young king must rally his allies and release the full power of Black Panther to defeat his foes and secure the safety of his people and their way of life.

Black Panther stars Chadwick Boseman (T'Challa/Black Panther), Lupita Nyong'o (Nakia), Michael B. Jordan (Erik Killmonger), Danai Gurira (Okoye), Martin Freeman (Everett K. Ross), Daniel Kaluuya (W'Kabi), Angela Bassett (Ramonda), Forest Whitaker (Zuri), Andy Serkis (Ulysses Klaw), Florence Kasumba (Ayo), John Kani (King T'Chaka), Winston Duke (M'Baku/Man-Ape), Sterling K. Brown (N'Jobu), and Letitia Wright (Shuri).

darkseid needs the motherboxes

and cyborg is a motherbox no?


he can be "integral" without being memorable. huge difference.


So what do you think? is he gonna be the Rhodey of the DCU? potential that gets squandered and ends up being just a joke of a character? Maybe he might Turn into a Sam wilson and be moderately capable on his own? im thinking the former


Unforunately Rhodey only exists to prop Stark.

Cyborg should be is own thing. He isn't a legacy character. And he could be cool with some changes design wise.

But then they stuck a 20 year old kid around a 40 year old grumpy bilionaire, a grown ass alien, and 1000 year old demigod, and a atlantean king. (and whatever they are doing with flash)

WTF is he going ot talk abotu with them? what does he bring to the table other than teleporting?


if only he was apart of a different team... of younger heroes... possibly teenagers..... hmmmm are any of those around?


And if only there was another minority hero who could take his place... someone who can stand next to aliens and gods and not be out of place... someone that has power levels to match... possibly someone that was in cartoons a bunch when the coveted market was in school....

Post by: 4sake on June 26, 2017, 11:48:05 am
I'm guessing fan made because of the watermark, Martin Freeman is name is b4 Danai Gurira, Florence Kasumba is on poster when her role/character less important than Letitia Wright, Sterling K. Brown & possibly Winston Duke. Also her name is b4 Daniel Kaluuya who character/role (going buy most cast listing ) is more important than her role (he's usually listed as 6 or 7 character on most sites)..

If the cast listing doesn't have these four 1st (BP, KM, Nakia, Okoye) this it probably fan made.
 

I'm thinking movie wise

 1st teir

BP
KM
Queen Nakia
Okoye


2nd teir

W'Kabi
Queen Mom
Shuri
Ross
Klaw
Zuri


3rd
Ayo
N'Jobu
WG
T'Chaka
PG/Phylicia Rashad
Unnamed DMs
Isaach de Bankolé character

Will Bucky Barnes Next Appearance In The MCU Be In 'Black Panther'

By Paul's Wall, writer at CREATORS.CO

After the events of Captain America: Civil War left Bucky Barnes cryogenically frozen yet again, most of us didn't get expect to see him again until Avengers: Infinity War. But could he have a role to play in next year's Black Panther movie?

To be clear, Sebastian Stan hasn't been confirmed for a role in Black Panther. And while he hasn't been added to the cast yet, Stan's comments in regard to where Bucky Barnes will show up next has me thinking an appearance in Black Panther is plausible. Here's what #SebastianStan had to say:

"I don't know, man. I mean, there's obviously a very clear answer but I'm not maybe say it, now (sic). Where did he end up at the end of the movie? That's the movie he should be in. I feel like that would be the natural... But I don't know."


(https://images.moviepilot.com/images/c_limit,q_auto:good,w_600/udak8ezvcveryybu7bvi/captain-america-civil-war-credit-marvel-studios.jpg)

There are only so many plausible scenarios for Bucky to become embroiled in the plot of Black Panther, but a few theories on how that could play out are believable and would work within the context of the #MCU.

1. Post-Credits Scene

Assuming the majority of Black Panther focuses on the in-fighting between the warring clans of Wakanda, there probably won't be enough time to depict a full character arc for Bucky to become involved in Black Panther's plot. So, the most believable way to address his presence in said film would be to tag a stinger onto the end-credits, where Bucky is awakened by Steve Rogers, #TChalla, or another member of the Secret Avengers.

2. T'Challa Wakes Bucky Up To Help With Kilmonger

Another potential scenario that could see #BuckyBarnes join Black Panther has to do with the different factions attempting to take control of Wakanda from T'Challa. Both Erik Kilmonger and M'Baku have aspirations to become king of Wakanda, so their war on T'Challa might force the new king to wake Bucky up to enlist his aid. T'Challa does have the Dora Milaje to back him up, but they still may not be enough. With there being so many characters trying to wrestle the crown from T'Challa, it seems appropriate for Bucky to come to his aid. Plus, Ulysses S. Klaue is expected to show up with his own villainous mission, making the prospect of T'Challa recruiting Bucky all the more believable, even if Bucky is still compromised by the brainwashing.

3. A Prematurely Releases Bucky Barnes To Send Him On An Assassination Mission

There's a good chance that one of the villains introduced in Black Panther will find out that the king has Bucky frozen in a Wakandan research facility. If so, they'd possibly release the #WinterSoldier to send him on another assassination mission. After all, it's reasonable to assume that if a villain found out about Bucky's presence in Wakanda, they'd also learn the reasons why he had to be placed in cryogenic storage. And don't forget, the Winter Soldier is a wanted man—with his being plastered all over the news in Civil War and blamed for the United Nations bombing that killed the former king, the citizens of Wakanda will be well aware of Bucky's capabilities.

4. A Cure To Bucky's Brainwashing Is Discovered By Black Panther's Scientists

After learning of Wakanda being home to well-accomplished scientists like Shuri, we shouldn't rule out the possibility of a cure to Bucky's brainwashing being crafted as well. Were they to dedicate enough time to studying Bucky, they'd probably figure out how to remove the programming installed in his brain.

Sounds like mostly wishful thinking on the writer's part.  I just can't see Coogler deciding what the movie really needs is T'Challa defrosting a white superhero to help him.

After-credits scene?  Plausible.  The rest?  Nah….

Yep. Spidey  will more likely than not catch that shield at some point...but that probably won't help him too much.

Cap's mastery of nerve strikes allows him to either completely mop Spidey with one attack or at least numb him and remove the use of important limbs for awhile with a single flow of attack which are essentially multiple attacks merged into one attack.

Here's a pic of him landing a nerve strike on Spidey. In the narrative, Spidey specifies that it's a nerve strike and his whole side goes numb.

Nerve pinches and/or strikes are something that T'Challa has long done and surpassed. In fact? In THE CLIENT, Priest had T'Challa utilize nerve strikes against Hunter.

He nerve shots Karnak, too. Even though it's not specified in the narrative, the LOCATION of the knee that T'Challa gives Karnak is to a well known nerve cluster at the tip of the nose that causes the eyes to close and water, shock to the respiratory system and wave shock to the central nervous system sufficient enough to temporarily cause unconsciousness and dropping to one's knees.

He also uses his knowledge of sinew, bone and nerves to help him sense and decipher when The Super Skrull is no longer using Luke Cage's steel hard skin to protect him, thus making him vulnerable to the horrific joint breaks and maiming damage that T'Challa employs.

Soooo. Yeah. Cap can and 8 out of 10 times WOULD beat Spidey in a throwdown. And T'Challa wins 10 out of 10 times. Or at least 9.5 of ten.

idk man, Spidey has the fighting skills of first movie rocky balboa

all heart, no skill
Spoiler (click to reveal)
Shocker gave him the business


Sneak attack!  Inadmissible evidence!

Plus Cap aint punchin school buses around like that lol

Spidey's damage intake is crazy yo.  Cap would have to get in close and perform some brazilian jujitsu to choke him out or something

Or some convenient environment where there's somethin he can drop atop of him like the air plane scene in civil war.  otherwise Spidey gon get rid of that shield sooner or later... or he gon web swing that shield and cap along with it

Yep. Spidey  will more likely than not catch that shield at some point...but that probably won't help him too much.

Cap's mastery of nerve strikes allows him to either completely mop Spidey with one attack or at least numb him and remove the use of important limbs for awhile with a single flow of attack which are essentially multiple attacks merged into one attack.

This is MCU tho... not comics.
 
Comic wise, Squirrel Girl will beat Dr Doom 9 out of 10 times using peak-rodent squirrels with a mastery of armor busting pressure point squirrel nibbling techniques.  This is documented.

Comic wise, Winter Soldier beat Miles (who beat Blackheart, go figure) but in MCU young Peter (comparable to Miles) snatches Bucky's metal punch like it's something cute to look at.

MCU is much more grounded in realism than the comics when it comes to weight classes.  Brooklyn is gettin webbed up by Queens!

I can't see it, but I remember with that T'Challa staggering the hulk, I think that's a cropped picture and it's some other hero (I forget his name cannon ball maybe.?) Actually punching hulk and Tchalla is in a weird position,
maybe it hard to say if he is causing the damage. That Said, T'Challa has still taken down symboids, who have the powers of venom and hit as hard as sentry, as well as beating back Black dwarf, getting that neck shot on terrax, and beating down Namor.. so still above Spideys weight class, plus on two different occasions he can caught Spidey, and one other time he has snuck past his spider sense.

But yeah, Cap would have to be blood lusted as hell to beat spidey... he'd have to cut his head off. otherwise spidey just gonna keep getting up with his super damage soak.

MCU tchalla would have more o fa chance since instea dof having a shield he is wearing it... but... soon he would be kicked 5 blocks down the road lol

You beat me to the punch MoS. There's our girl, there's our boi and the Black Panther will not be the same afterwards. Sans the helmet the new costume looks good. If this movie delivers an authentic T'Challa then the Coatesverse will be irrelevant and may continue on it's path to oblivion. Godspeed.

Honestly i think the Helmet should of made the eyes a little bit smaller (bigger then CW because T'Chadwick said he had a hard tie seeing in it) and there should be more silver linings on it, It looks a little better in the photo as it seems to have better rendering, but looking where the silver crosses over the nose, there should be Silver linings that come down the cheeks as shown in the picture

ive warmed up to the suit. There is a lot more to it that it looked in the trailer. I am liking the lines running through it.

is it better than the first? I dont think so but it looks a LOT better here that it did in the trailer. So i expect it will look even better in the movie.

Helmet im warming up to to, this is the best its looked.

Interesting stuff..

Further comfermation that MCU Naika & Zuri are combination of atleast 2 BP characters.

Naika is both Malaika/Melaika & Naika alot of Malaika/Melaika story is seems used for MCU Naika

Zuri is both Zuri & ( maybe Nameless?) Hard shape heart Shaman

Wonder if they will combine Ramonda & N'Yami aswell.

@ Ture Yea i will likely be satisfied with the final rendering, i think its just funny because before CW i hit i though the helmet looked too busy, but now seeing this helmet i think its not busy enough lol.. gotta find that happy medium. Which i think silver on the cheeks would help alot, and maybe even make the Black markings on the helmet and Habit itself pop some more so that way we can really see the beauty of it all.

So it seems Nakia isn't quite what we thought...

Spoiler (click to reveal)
One of them is Wakanda’s undercover operative Nakia, played by 12 Years a Slave Oscar-winner Lupita Nyong’o. She may actually be the closest thing to 007 in this movie, and she’s a former lover of T’Challa’s.

“She is a departure from what she was in the comic book,” Nyong’o says. “Nakia is a war dog,” Nyong’o says. “She is basically an undercover spy for Wakanda. Her job is to go out into the world and report back on what’s going on.”




Interesting stuff..

Further comfermation that MCU Naika & Zuri are combination of atleast 2 BP characters.

Naika is both Malaika/Melaika & Naika alot of Malaika/Melaika story is seems used for MCU Naika

Zuri is both Zuri & ( maybe Nameless?) Hard shape heart Shaman

Wonder if they will combine Ramonda & N'Yami aswell.


mendinao was the heart shaped herb guy

Good work, I had forgot all about him.. Some one high up most definitely read BP vol2 both he & Malaika/Melaika (MCU Naika ) are from that run..

I wonder if marvel will just bring Malaika/Melaika back & nickname her Naika or something like that..

Digging the overall aesthetic, intrigued by the potential story elements for this film and beyond, and welcome back Nakia. The new suit is fine, but the lines on the CW suit can be studied in a Design Class. Can't wait, can't wait.

Cosigned and QFT.

@ Ture Yea i will likely be satisfied with the final rendering, i think its just funny because before CW i hit i though the helmet looked too busy, but now seeing this helmet i think its not busy enough lol.. gotta find that happy medium. Which i think silver on the cheeks would help alot, and maybe even make the Black markings on the helmet and Habit itself pop some more so that way we can really see the beauty of it all.

The good "She is also a genius and runs the entire Wakandan design group". I really think some folks at Marvel read our posts and respect our suggestions.

The bad "She’s responsible for all these amazing technological advances that Vibranium has brought about from Wakanda". Don't gut the Black Panther like Spider-man or even more so Nolan's Dark Knight.
 
The ugly (or possible ugly) T'Challa doesn't build or design anything including his suit and personal equipment and weaponry. Add to that no on screen romance and I will be disappointed.


If I trust the process "She is also a genius" would infer that T'Challa is the other genius being referenced. More than likely it reads Shuri is fashion conscious and she is also a genius. I remark on this simply because they are not mentioning T'Challa's genius or scientific inventiveness. While I may be able to accept some changes or ignore some minor slip ups this is not the case when it comes to the Black Panther's intellect.

Favorite part of the EW coverage:

Quote
“What makes him different from other superheroes first and foremost is he doesn’t see himself as a superhero,” says director and co-writer Ryan Coogler (Fruitvale Station, Creed). “He sees himself as a politician. That’s the first thing on his mind when he wakes up in the morning. ‘How am I going to fulfill my duties as king of this place?”

Can I get a Namor laugh for the unfans who thought Coates would affect the movie?

"Feige says the film honors the history of Marvel's first black superhero. "Creating a character named Black Panther, who comes across in those early comics as smarter than everybody else, is shrewder than everybody else, comes from a country that is more advanced than any other country... They were doing this in the ‘60s, right in the middle of the Civil Rights movement. That’s pretty good," Feige says. "And we are certainly not going to shy away from that.""

I think that will help me to except Shuri's expanded skills

Makes coates look like an idiot, maybe enough people will go WTF and Marvel comics will shape up, or better yet, they will shape up before the Movie hits and get him back to status Quo, since that is the obvious thing to do.

Nakia and Monica for the win.

What is his love life like?
[Laughs] There’s no engagement that’s happening! He’s very James Bond-like. There’s always a possibility that there could be some other woman. I’m not going to tell you that there’s a triangle. You want me to say something about Monica Lynne. [She’s an American character originating in the comics in 1970 and had a turbulent, passionate relationship with T’Challa.]

You mentioned James Bond. How would you say Black Panther is like 007?
In the James Bond movies, there is always the girl but then in the next movie there is another girl. [Laughs] Lupita and I are always joking about that. [Lupita Nyong’o costars as Nakia, a covert agent for Wakanda and a former lover of T’Challa’s.] She will say, “There better not be another woman in the next one!” I’m like, “Hey, you better lock it down!”

Can't wait for T'challa to wake up from the nightmare that is the Coatesverse.

Yea stuff like that is reassuring. I know it sounds silly, but I really don't want him short changed because people want to claim Gary Stu bull isht that unfans love to claim.

@Ture
I hear you brotha there is something fluid about it, and seeing a better rendering of it, it's looking better. I will still say I wish/hope they add the silver lining onto the cheeks under the eyes on the new helmet and hopefully get a little more pronounced Black on the sigils and designs, regardless BP gonna be lit

Doesn't mean Monica Lynne can't make a reappearance

Doesn't mean Zanda can't make an appearance.

Doesn't mean any of the gals in T'challa's youth can't make an appearance.

Doesn't mean they can't follow up on how in the hell Guillotine knows T'challa and why they were so shocked ot see each other again.

People like Coates and his enablers (you T'choro for life people) have completely cockblocked T'challa from even giving another gal a hug.

Smoov-e had a great retort to the nonsense

(paraphrasing):

"yall want to crucify Nakia for being a villain of Wakanda when the exact same thing applied to Storm but yall swear she is the best and only option!"

I was like Black Rob from Bad Boy, "whoa!"

The desperation is real. Storm fans realize that She will be stuck in those X slums soon and so they are trying hard to get that golden ticket to the Wakandan palace at any cost. And like i said Nakia will actually be able to Stick unlike Storm because she is not apart of the mythos. Nakia can become the next Black widow pretty easily
