Wolverine, lone wolf, antagonizer role with a dose of "back up leader, prep, tech" guy likely

Carol is just a flying brick with this group

Hidden Figures: 235mil on 25m budget

Get Out: 255mil on 5m budget

Girls Trip: 140mil on 28m budget

Blak Panther: all the money

All these movies have massive ROI. And this isnt including the FF franchise, jumanji, straight outta compton, and other franchises lead by POC that make money

Black (and white) people are sick of slave movies. Therr is more to black culture than slave sh*t.

And another thing, only half of the mcu movies have had 100m openings. 9/18

1. Hidden Figures- This film was pushed by The Hollywood mainstream in conjunction with schools and the Black church. There were literal buses set up for the movie as well as school screenings across the country. SANCTIONED

2. Get Out- The modern era Blair Witch Project. A great horror movie that captured the audience. There are some undertones about race and cultural appropriation but Peele was smart enough to leave it vague.

3. Girls Trip- Black people being funny and outlandish. Again, pushed by Hollywood as Black female empowerment and had all the requisite media outlets covered. SANCTIONED

As for the Marvel brand automatically equaling a $100 million dollar opening I readily accept the correction if I'm wrong. However, I think the consensus would be that the true MCU era as a Brand starts with Avengers. I will check how many Marvel films post The Avengers debut have failed to have $100 million dollar openings. Again, thanks for the correction.

7/13 if i counted right

Yeah you bring up something else

Black folks are horrible about "everything has to be about everything and everyone perfectly " syndrome.

Like this thread... cant be happy bout BO, gotta pull the "why didn't u support xyz"

Every black movie gotta have perfect females, perfect gays, perfect everything or its trash.

Happens with tchalla all tge time... cant just show strong black male... gotta fux gay doras, gotta have shuri, gotta help storm, blah blah blah

Black Panther / Re: Black Panther Movie SPOILER THREAD
« on: Yesterday at 03:36:21 pm »
Every comic characte has problematic sh*t, especialky Every minority comic character out there would need fixed

They fixed falcon
They fixed cage
They fixed tchalla...  wasnt hanging aroubd 16 year old girls and there wasnt a single crack rock around or white dudes narrating.

The premise of black dude in 60s with supes power level and a genius is something a coogler type could do something with


Just have him kill the ba guy by pushing them both through some dimensional space portal and he disappears into legend

(Until tchalla finds him in black panther 4)

Black Panther / Re: Black Panther Movie SPOILER THREAD

I will be interested in seeing how the studios react to this.  Will they understand WHY the movie did well, or just flood the market with poorly-crafted movies that only superficially resemble BP?

(Personally, I suspect the latter, but I'm a cynic. ;) )


Blue Marvel movie would work perfectly



The original Mr. Soliloquies himself

aka

Black Superman.

set in past so you don't have to fit him in anywhere

show DC how you make a real superman power level's movie

civil rights stuff writes itself.

have him fly off to go on vacation with Uatu at the end and you don't have to explain where he was when Thanos came around.

dont have him give lectures, have him punch people really hard lol

I'm not playing the leading questions game. Its amateur-ish.

I've stated over and over why i didn't bother seeing it in theaters, why others might not, and why it isn't appropriate for children while BP is all ages ect ect.

State the point you are trying to get to with your leading questions or move on

and once again, you are comparing a

comic book super hero all ages fictional adventure comedy film

vs

a failed slave rebellion film


This comparison is ridiculous and screams fake wokeness. One movie you leave with a smile on your face and little kids pretending they are tchalla or okoye. The other makes you go home and drink whiskey


I never HAVE and never WILL use the term "Woke" or any derivative thereof. 8)

Heroism as I'm sure you are aware of can be portrayed outside of fiction. In those portrayals the hero often fails and even dies. That shouldn't detract from their heroism. To the point of the children, learning about Nat Turner is INFINITELY more important than learning about T'Challa and The Black Panther mythos. I must stress that it is not an either or premise and I haven't set it up as one.

seems appropriate for children


The same children who are playing GTA V, CALL OF DUTY, GEARS OF WAR, GOD OF WAR etc.?

If you think I am inappropriately skewing down the ages of the gamers just do a random survey of elementary school aged children and see what their favorite games are.


so you took your 8 year old to Birth?

video game graphics aren't hte same. Note even close.

So may is the new Avengers relaunch month

Can I dream Panther gets relaunched in May tooo?

I'm not paying 15 bucks to watch a slave movie.

Slave REBELLION movie you meant?

Failed Slave Rebellion sure

still a slave movie

still POC in chains

just because some dude lead a failed rebellion doesn't mean that in the end, there were still a bunch of POC in chains or hanging from a tree.

if I wanna be depressed, i'll read a book.

Did you like BRAVEHEART?

Yes but

1. im not scottish
2. it isn't historically accurate at all
3. Wallace's people won in the end and were inspired by him. Turner's rebellion lead to even stricter laws and emancipation wasn't proclaimed for another 30 years.

The final 2 scenes in BRAVEHEART turned around Wallace's failed rebellion and allowed you to enjoy that film. Correct?

No.

I enjoyed watching fictional scottish alpha males fight armies with swords.

Stop trying to me on in questioning lol.
