This is what I mean that Anti Afrakan Machine. If T'Challa comes out alive then he won't be clean!

Picking up where we last left off...





Sam gets saved by the new Green Falcon and suits up as Captain Falcon only to confronted by a Wakandan entourage led by Shuri. Let's read what the soon to be new queen and cinematic Black Panther has to say.



We interrupt this comic for the following public service announcement.



And now back to our regularly scheduled comic book.





There you have it. Not friends and surprisingly not the beat down I thought might happen. The fact still remains that what the writers and Marvel are doing to T'Challa is deplorable and unacceptable.



So Hunter the White Wolf is Mohanndan?!? And is now Captain Falcon's arch enemy?!?

While it is pleasing to see the young girl have an action figure she can enjoy and identify with... the Vibranium Blast Sunbird looks cheap. Shuri new non- Black Panther outfit looks generic on screen and in plastic. Funko through no fault of their own have a Black Panther that just isn't aesthetically pleasing. I am and remain a collector of the Black Panther and used to be labeled a completist but the merch and comics have cease to inspire purchase.

BLACK PANTHER: WAKANDA FOREVER - Queen Ramonda And Shuri Prepare For Battle In New Still
Following yesterday's cover reveal, Empire has debuted a new promo still for Black Panther: Wakanda Forever, which sees Queen Ramonda and Shuri preparing to take the fight to their nation's enemies.
By RorMachine

Empire Magazine has followed up yesterday's cover reveal with a new image from Marvel Studios' upcoming Black Panther: Wakanda Forever, which sees Queen Ramonda (Angela Bassett) and her daughter Shuri (Letitia Wright) preparing to defend against an unseen enemy.

Ryan Coogler's sequel arrives in the wake of the first film's star, Chadwick Boseman, tragically passing away from cancer in 2020, and the director explains how this devastating loss drives the question: "How do you carry on in the face of seemingly insurmountable odds?"

“Unfortunately, that question became more and more relevant. Both for humanity as a whole, but also for the people in our production who were coming back for this one,” says Coogler. “It became super-relevant when we lost our bro.”

The filmmaker also revealed that, prior to Boseman's passing, his original plan for the follow-up was "spiritually very similar."

“Maturity is about being faced with impossible questions, and still making a choice and moving forward. This unique group is more like a band than it is a group of actors, and Chad was our lead singer. So for me, it was like, ‘How do I figure out a song that they can still get up there and sing?’, in light of what we were dealing with.”

Though it's yet to be officially confirmed, Shuri is expected to take up the Black Panther mantle and unite her people against the threat of King Namor and his aquatic army.

A good visual of Queen Ramonda, particularly the hair styling but Shuri style of dress leaves much to be desired. I guess she saving it all for the new Panther costume.

Speaking of covers, here are the covers for the upcoming issue of Empire magazine focusing on Wakanda Forever... cause the Black Panther is no where to be seen. Should have just called it Wakanda: The Color of Water. Nuff said.





Because I remember this.



And this.




Foreshadowing perhaps? Did Coates know something was amiss?

The hand of the white gorilla on his staff is questionable but the detailing and flourishes on M'Baku's traditional garb can be appreciated.





Queen Ramonda's gown looks regal. The Mid Night Angels armor appears comic book accurate and I hope Nakia isn't the only Wakandan with the high tech underwater suit. While four out of five isn't bad... was any time and effort put into Shuri's uniform. That questions belies the undercurrent of this supposed sequel.




Well, I can't guarantee what will happen next. We've got some difficult days ahead. But it doesn't matter to me now. Because I've seen that Black Panther potential reached. And they can't corrupt me. Like any Black Panther enthusiast, I would like to see T'Challa live a long life on screen. Longevity has its place. But I'm not concerned about that now. Bas Hur Bast's will be done. And they've allowed us to witness the Black Panther's potential. That same potential that some have overlooked. None the less we've seen the promised land of Wakanda and its king on screen. T'Challa may not be there in the sequel but I want you to know this day, that we, as fans and enthusiasts will get to see that potential again. So I'm happy this day. I'm not worried about anything. I'm not fearing anything Marvel or the A.G.E.N.D.A does. Mine eyes have seen the works of Priest, Hudlin, McDuffie, Liss, Aaron and the coming of Thorne.

Disney Reveals New Black Panther: Wakanda Forever Trailer At D23: 'The King is Dead'
By Ryan Dinsdale

A new trailer for Black Panther: Wakanda Forever has revealed several new story details for the upcoming film.

Unveiled exclusively at D23 2022 - but not before the stage erupted into the Captain America musical number - the trailer opens with Angela Bassett's character appearing at the UN. She's asked about vibranium and how it can be used as a weapon for mass destruction, facing criticism for its threat to the global order.

The next scene shows soldiers invading a Wakandan outreach centre and bending the soldiers to their will. Flashing back to the Queen, she calls the UN liars, declaring: "The King is dead. The Black Panther is gone. They have lost the protector." Back at the lab, Dora Milaje appear and fight the soldiers before appearing at the UN with them as prisoners.

The trailer then flashes through several scenes: Shuri in a funeral garb, a shot of Namor, the throne room on fire. The Queen can be seen talking to Namor who is later attacked by M'baku, though M'baku's staff is broken as a result. Another quick shot shows Iron Heart very briefly before the new Black Panther hero - who remains a mystery - lands on a snowy field.

Director Ryan Coogler discussed Wakanda Forever after the trailer, paying respects to the late Chadwick Boseman alongside cast members Winston Duke, Tenoch Huerta, and Bassett.

"It was just an amazing experience and we absolutely looking forward to bringing it to you," Coogler said. "This is the calm before the amazing storm. Our heart Chadwick, he paved the way - he showed us the way - and we had to meet his level of excellence."



Duke added that everything is bigger and everything is new in Wakanda Forever. "The tech is fun, the tech is different, the tech is nothing you’ve seen, it’s Wakanda."

The sequel to the beloved Black Panther has been a long time coming; following the immense success of the original, Wakanda Forever's production was initially shaken by the tragic death of star Boseman. With the decision made to not continue with a CGI version of Boseman's T'Challa, the film was reshaped to be respectful of Boseman but also find a new direction. But since starting filming, production has been hindered by COVID and delays.

The set recently had to be closed due to an outbreak, and was previously halted due to an on-set injury suffered by star Letitia Wright.

Due to arrive on November 11, we got an emotional first trailer at San Diego Comic-Con, which hid the identity of the new Black Panther. However, a LEGO set appeared to give the game away shortly afterwards.

Black Panther: Wakanda Forever will be the final entry in Phase 4 of the MCU and will be part of the newly named Multiverse Saga that encompasses Phases 4, 5, and 6. It will also be our first introduction to new MCU character Ironheart, who will go on to have her own Disney+ show inspired by the comics of the same name.

You can catch up on everything announced during today's showcase in our full roundup.

Black Panther / Re: FEAR OF A BLACK PANTHER - Redjack Speaks

What a lot of folks seem to aggressively and conveniently forget is that T'Chaka and ESPECIALLY T'Challa are (or used to be) UNIQUE in the history of WAKANDA. Father and son are both looking out at the larger world and realizing Wakanda needs to be part of it. T'Chaka was the slow walk, trying to ease things along. T'Challa is the CANNON, forcing his people and the world together, not out of personal desire but out of necessity. Their days of hiding are over as a matter of survival.

Prior to this father and son, the Black Panther mantle-holders were, essentially, interchangeable. Wakanda was a stable, utopian hermit kingdom. So, while every Panther is a badass fighter, NOT every Panther is a scientific genius (T'Challa) and ZERO Panthers were trying to re-connect Wakanda to the outside world (T'Chaka and T'Challa).

Whatever "political strife" occurred in Wakanda did so and was handled thousands of years ago. Wakandan society is an example of how all human society should be. Or, rather, it was that. Now there are rape camps and misogyny, among many other ills. A generation of writers and editors desired to have Wakanda reflect many of the modern and traditional realities of real African nations.

This was and remains a mistake. Not only because super-hero comics are the antithesis of "realism" but because, even within the fictional universe, zero of those ills have ever touched Wakanda. It couldn't have survived as long as it did if they had. No chance. So, we're talking about selective realism and that's just as corruptive.

What you want is naturalism (the character(s) feel like believable people) and plausibility (yeah, in the context of this universe, THAT could happen) in super-hero comics. never actual realism.

The editorial choices that have taken the character and the nation away from their foundation have ultimately gutted their uniqueness and importance.

After all, we don't tell the stories of how everything was perfect for ten thousand years. We tell the story of change and the upheaval that brings.We tell the story of NOW. Right now. Super-hero comics are always NOW. There's no beginning and no end. These aren't actually stories but extended vignettes.

This is the difference between corporate thinking– which is ultimately to sell as much of the product to as many people as they can by basically any means– and good storytelling.

The Black Panther is Wakanda. Wakanda is forever.

IMO, of course.

Redjack stays in the game and in T'Challa the Black Panther's corner. It is just a matter of time (a year or two) as to when we will be reading his iteration. Man he has a lot of crap to clean up but I am so looking forward to seeing it done.

NDA prevents me from saying much but I believe i've already established that MARVEL doesn't share scripts on its upcoming movies, not even with the people and companies making projects connected to or based on said projects. So, if you want to tell an epic story in the BP space but have NO IDEA what's being done in the upcoming BP movie, you can make something as a cash grab that people will forget as soon as they see it or you can do what what we did.

We did what we did.

Y'all ain't ready.



I feel much better knowing Redjack has a hand in this game.

Notice in the trailer when Queen Ramonda comes to the UN, the men with her mouths are covered and they push their microphones down, a symbolic silencing of the male presence.

And in the process they are ironically undervaluing the men by their removal and reduction In this movie.

The first movie didn't resonate because of womanhood. It resonated because of black UNITY. Black men and women shining and rising together.


Exactly Ezyo, exactly! The schism that results when Black men are marginalized if not exterminated, while Black women are elevated is harmful to Black families and lineage, and deliberately so. It is a genocide by halves cultivated through vice, seduction, privilege and greed.

No peace,

Mont



Quote of the month Kimoyo. That was an excellent statement based on a brilliant observation that too many seem to miss.

Cool teaser but the side effects and takeaways are glaring. At first look it appears to enforce the mantle troupe as it looks like it may be taking  place during WW2 and as such this will not feature T'Challa the Black Panther. Secondly this is a team up, so it will not provide T'Challa the Black Panther and his world the focus they require.

This would be fine if in addition Marvel releases a game centered on T'Challa the Black Panther and this game tells a detailed narrative based on Hudlin's Flags of Our Fathers.

You got that right with regards to Nakia Ezyo. Shuri's lacking the Afrakan aesthetics does not bode well for Wakanda. I can't take her seriously. Speaking of not taking it serious...



Wait, there's more.



For a film that boast the title Wakanda Forever they seem to be going out of their way to promote all things not Wakanda. This movie has stealth Sub Mariner origin movie, introducing Iron Heart with guest appearance by Wakandan natives written all over it.
