I would personally love the Netflix Defenders to be conscripted into the MCU. And everyone else mentioned above.


Yeah, I agree.  I'd loved to see 'The Defenders' with the MCU treatment, Supreme.  :)





But I maintain that Marvel isn't stupid enough to kill Chadwick onscreen, when they could recast T'Challa.



I agree.

That would be cruel; I trust T'Challa will not be killed off, at all.   

That's just not going to happen.

Lol the video claiming two Black Panthers, the source is from Grace Randolph... The same person who claimed a few weeks back that her "inside source" confirmed that T'Challa was going to be CGI'd in and killed at the start of the movie.. I swear, people are so dense

Now I can't speak on her 'inside info' on Panther but I think she's gotten some other scoops right, or close to it (I want to say she's been on it when it came to the Snyder Cut and Snyder even does interviews with her). Though I do recall now the director of Harley Quinn taking a swipe at Randolph also for what she said would be in the film that wasn't in the film.

I mean sure,you can get lucky with guesses, but what she has reported for bp has been false.. every Time, they generally just fling out a bunch of nonsense In hopes something sticks so they can claim they were right, whole simultaneously ignoring the other 10 things they were wrong about. Frankly, anything from her or We got this covered, I take as utter BS. What's worse is that people don't research and start believing this stuff.

You'll get no argument here from me here. I also agree that people should do their own research. I haven't been looking at what Randolph has said about BP though I do look at her program from time to time, generally more before the pandemic because I liked her going over the weekend box office.

Ezyo,

Grace Randolph is back, just for you, with a Thanksgiving feast of news. She must have heard you.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IkFB3VfHz1w

Mentions when BP2 shooting starts around 7:20; she gets more into BP2 around 10:15.

I disagree with Randolph here on making M'Baku a Black Panther. For one, that takes away him being White Gorilla (I don't like the name Man-Ape, and I thought RH gave him a much needed name makeover), but mostly because Winston Duke, despite being a big guy just comes across as being a bit soft-perhaps on purpose. He used comic timing to great effect in the first Black Panther, but I can't shake how his character was in Us, and I could see Coogler, Marvel going that route with M'Baku to make sure he doesn't outshine Shuri's BP. He could be the brawn, but not that bright, and still would get upstaged by Shuri-BP and especially the Dora Milaje. Randolph definitely misreads Panther fandom if she thinks a fun loving BP would be embraced, though to be fair, like with any hardcore fandom, it's just a small group of the people who would buy tickets and a fun loving, M'Baku-BP, a big black man who's a pussycat inside is really the kind of character that has gone over well countless times.

If they were going to have another male BP beside Shuri, I would rather go with W'Kabi. He had an edge in the first movie. I think he would not compliment Shuri as much as M'Baku would personality wise, but he also might not defer to her as much as I suspect a M'Baku-BP would either. W'Kabi would present more of a personality and ideological difference for Shuri and the audience.

Wow she is so far out of touch with reality it's staggering. This video reminded me very much why I dislike her when it comes to anything BP related. The stuff she speed is utter nonsense and further shows people will day whatever to get views and clicks.

The appeal of BP is that it's not afraid to break away from the MCU formula and actually take itself seriously. T'Challa isn't out cracking jokes left and right, it's bot afraid to ask tough questions and make you think and it doesn't undervalue a serious moment or scene with jokes like the others. BP is a serious with some light humor. That's how it should stay. IF Shuri and M'Baku took the mantle like she claims then you essentially get Thor rag. A Buddy cop movie that focuses on making the next joke. Because that's how the characters have been established.

She goes on again to mention her two source's with the CG after Marvel already came out and said they aren't doing that.. I mean.. why are people still believing what she's saying again? And this whole sacrifice himself at the start in some "beautiful" tribute is just morbid, poor taste and frankly stupid. The greatest BP of all time has been killed 3 times in under 10 years?? Miss me with that whole "respect" angle. That's creeping into Coatesville T'Challa. A recast is likely what is being done given the timing and it's what should be done to actually honor Chad.

Sorry but this makes my blood boil when I see this come up
