And now Michael B. Jordan has joined the class. Killmonger perhaps?

I had problems with BvS but that list seems awfully nitpicky.

I might go see CW again. Can't stop thinking about it BP was AWESOME!

Saw it twice.

Next time I'm going to see it in Real 3D. I mean I almost never see movies twice even if I really enjoyed it. This one, I just gotta.

Hudlin TV / Re: Rush Hour
« on: May 08, 2016, 10:41:46 pm »
I gave the first ep a chance. Not interested in seeing ep #2 and beyond. Kip's assessment is correct, in that Hires is trying too hard to be like Tucker while Foo isn't trying hard enough to be like Chan.

I think I gave it two or three episodes then gave up.

I didn't think that Foo not trying hard enough to be Chan was a negative, but now that you say it...yeah...Foo stayed so far away from Chan, he was boring.

It felt like Foo was sleepwalking through the role, but then I considered it might be his acting style as I'm not that familiar with him. Sure enough, I found a clip of a fight scene he did in a movie called "Extraction", his acting for the setup to the fight scene was identical to how he plays Lee. So I'll chalk it up to personal preference but I'm still not interested in seeing more of this show. What's funny though is I think the premise has legs its just the execution is meh to me.

Marvel’s ‘Black Panther’ Movie Finds Writer

Wait, if the movie NOW is looking for a director...I would LOVE for it to be Mr. Hudlin himself!

Says Panther is neutral through-out the whole film.  Can't wait!



One of the biggest questions going into Captain America: Civil War is what character is siding with who when Captain America goes up against Iron Man. For those of you who lost count, the current roster of characters include: Captain America, Iron Man, Hawkeye, Black Widow, Winter Soldier, Falcon, War Machine, Vision, Scarlet Witch, Ant-Man, Spider-Man and Black Panther.

According to Heroic Hollywood, this is how the teams are broken down. Starting for Team Captain America we have:



• Captain America
• Hawkeye
• Falcon
• Scarlet Witch
• Winter Soldier
• Ant-Man

Starting for Team Iron Man, we have:



• Iron Man
• Vision
• Spider-Man
• Black Widow
• War Machine

As for Black Panther, he’s going to be staying neutral throughout the whole film. This leads me to think that Black Panther is in the middle of the conflict between Tony and Steve. Heroic Hollywood also suggests that one of the characters on Team Iron Man is a double agent for Team Captain America.

Can you guess who it is?

Captain America: Civil War battle in theaters on May 6, 2016.


The omission of Banner and Thor is glaring. Can't wait for the in-story reason as to WHY they are missing. Maybe their absence is even the catalyst for the events. Hmm....

So...no one is talking about the talk online about Selma director Ava Duvernay being courted possibly to direct Black Panther?


No director has been chosen???  ???

Uh oh... :-\

The movie is coming out in 2018, I think there's time. I hope its her, and if not her, Fuqua.

Comic Reviews and Spoilers / Re: X-BlackMen

So to put it bluntly and bring it back to the original topic, Stan is full of it when he says he ALWAYS envisioned the X-Men as an allegory for the civil rights movement vis a vis MLK and MX. No long paragraphs saying "well beyond that it retrofits well" none of that, I'm not a fan of Stan getting credit like that. I like him, as much as you can like a person you've never met, but that's pushing it. Give credit where credit is due and take credit for what you actually credited. That wasn't Stan's original idea, not even close.

Even now how many people know what Malcolm X and the Nation of Islam actually promoted? To me, Malcolm has been seen as a 'hate preacher'. And a lot of people don't go beyond that. So I could see people getting that news, and not actually listening to what he said, or even listening to what he said and being repelled by it, because what he said back then is still pretty radical today, and seeing Malcolm as bad or evil. Granted it's a comic book so they are going to exaggerate. I'm not saying that Lee made Magneto, if he did, exactly like Malcolm, put perhaps Malcolm's call for self-determination sparked something creatively in Lee, or better yet the perceived anger and violence and hate associated with Malcolm sparked that creative impulse.

That's kinda what I was getting at. The only way that works is if they whittled MLK and MX down to harmless can't we all get along docile harmless negro (Prof. X) vs big scary negro who wants to take ovah!!!!1!!!1!! (Magneto) based on nothing but propaganda and fear of, well, karma, basically. Definitely very little of what either said, if that was taken into consideration at all anyway. That would require research and understanding why both men believed the way they did in the first place, the plight of black people back then. If Prof. X and Magneto is what they came up with, they didn't understand that at all and didn't even try.

So they MIIIIGGGHT want to back off that and attribute that to Claremont alone. Heck they'd get more traction saying they lifted it from the Wizard of Oz. That fits better



Hey, watchit sucka...!  :)

Wizard of Oz was a lot more metaphorical than you think.  ;D

Indeed, and its definitely not an insult if they lifted at least on the surface from the Wizard of Oz. Definitely not a veiled insult like it is saying they based Prof X and Mags on MLK and MX.

I saw a video on Youtube that showed a Haitian being being lynched in the DR. No context was provided other than that, and the title "Blacks are hated everywhere" so I didn't investigate it further. But apparently there is in fact more to it.
