So we're going to have a multiyear break before the next BP movie comes out. In the interim, seems like our leading light for Afrakan heroics will be Anthony Mackie's new Falcon-cum-Captain America. I don't see any projects named WAR MACHINE or any major WAR MACHINE TV stuff or streaming series coming on. No Doctor Voodoo, which is kinduva surprise what with the whole "horror" thing Marvel has going with GHOST RIDER and HELLSTROM. No Okoye or Shuri stuff, no live action Miles Morales stuff that I'm aware of. Seems like the only brutha holdin it down for us that we know of right now is Falcon. We'll have to wait til 2021 for even the hope of LUKE CAGE [ and the rest of the excellent NETFLIX MARVEL stuff ] coming back.

Soooo...does anyone know if there'll be some Afrakan heroics worth watching between now and the return of BP, BLADE, etc in the MCU?

Btw. The sleeper star in all of this? Mess around and be the [ highly underrated ] Jeremy Renner's Hawkeye. Thoughts?

Agents of Shield has one more season and Henry Simmons' Mack has been prominent on there. Also, there's still Runaways and Cloak and Dagger. When it comes to touting MCU diversity the television shows don't get the credit they might deserve up to this point.


Well said. I rocks with Henry Simmons since way back...since ABOVE THE RIM, back in like what was that? 1995? 1994? And one of Tyler Perry's Madea movies. I think he isn't given the options that he deserves. And it's crazy to think that he and I both are 49. He is winning at Life much more than I am, lol.

But still...that's just not enough. Cloak on Cloak and Dagger isn't hard enough. Isn't MAN enough. Neither is what'shisname on RUNAWAYS. I like both characters and support both actors, but...they're just too soft, man. They don't carry that Black man PHYSICAL swag, that CULTURAL identification and soul, that HARDCORENESS, man. They're very much new age new kid compromised...and packed with that new age cross over appeal which is so important for success nowadays.

But bottom line? Them kids just not hard enough.


 Mack? Is with the biz but he's not WITH THE BIZ like Blade is, you know? Or Black Panther. Hell, I'm starving for HAWK [ A MAN CALLED HAWK, SPENSER FOR HIRE  ] to come back...even though it's a helluva lot to expect some foolish Millenial to hope to have a shot at doing a younger Hawk any kind of justice. Or writers of this era to do Hawk any justice.

Hawk remains the best dressed. Coolest. Baddest. Smartest. Most Woke. Most Ahead of His Time. Dopest cars drivingest. Biggest Colt Python revolver carryingest. Man to ever hit the small screen.

"You can't surprise me Spenser, you're too White."--HAWK











HAWK was where got his BLADE SHADES from. For rillz.

That's it, man. Let's start this. BRING BACK "A MAN CALLED HAWK"! Hell, BRING BACK SPENSER FOR HIRE!! BRING EM BOTH BACK!! LET'S START A PETITION.


But which one of these young bucks...BESIDES MICHAEL B. JORDAN WHO WOULD TURN DOWN ANY OPTION TO PLAY HAWK ANYWAYS...could actually rock Hawk with a serious Morpheus+John Wick upgrade in physicality and weaponry, but without sacrificing the iconic Cool, Wokeness, and amazing acting skill of Avery Brooks infused Hawk?

Quoted for truth Supreme. Hawk was that dude for real. Couldn't wait for him to cut his hair, grow the goatee and rid himself of that innocuous look on DS9.

JORDAN WHO WOULD TURN DOWN ANY OPTION TO PLAY HAWK ANYWAYS...could actually rock Hawk with a serious Morpheus+John Wick upgrade in physicality and weaponry, but without sacrificing the iconic Cool, Wokeness, and amazing acting skill of Avery Brooks infused Hawk?

To your question, though they aren't young anymore, Michael Jai White and Wesley Snipes could easily play Hawk. I think Henry Simmons could do it, and maybe Morris Chestnut (he had  more of an edge in the short-lived NBC show he was on last season). I think Aldis Hodge could as well. For younger guys, I liked Y'lan Noel in The First Purge. I had some issues with the stereotypical character he played, but he still looked like he could kick some ass. Maybe Trevante Rhodes, who did okay in the action scenes in that last horrible Predator movie and also did fine in the Bird Box movie. Mike Colter did fine as Luke Cage, so I could see him also being able to play Hawk.

Good point about the softness of the MCU television characters, though I wasn't looking at them in terms of playing Hawk or necessarily of projecting masculinity. I've seen more of Runaways and Alex struggles with that, but to the show's credit, he hasn't been completely wussed out, though they do let too many of the team front on him. I also don't think they let his dad fully kick ass and be the boss he could be. I haven't seen enough of Cloak and Dagger to judge, though I can see him being a teen, same with Alex, as a way to not have to contend with fully formed black masculinity. When it comes to Mack, he is a full grown man, though I do think they soften him and they keep him under Coulson and then stutter step with his relationship with Yo-Yo (of course he can't have a black woman), and I do find it interesting that May (who had a black husband) has shown no interest in him, or even Daisy for that matter. He came a little into his own this season, IMO, though they still had him taking Ls way too much.

In this reboot happy time, I wish Black Hollywood would get more into reviving and maybe expanding or even improving  upon some of old, classic, or iconic characters and stories. There's been a little of it with Shaft and Superfly, and I heard about a new Uptown Saturday Night coming. The Color Purple has never left us really, being on Broadway if not on the big screen. And Dreamgirls turned Jennifer Hudson into an Academy Award winner. I didn't see the Fat Albert film. Unfortunately Sparkle didn't get the support I think it deserved. And there is the Boomerang show on BET, though I don't know if it's out yet.

As well as Hawk, other shows/movies they could reboot/revive that come to mind are: Fortune Dane, Action Jackson, Red Tails, Miracle at St. Anna, School Daze, Coffy, Cosmic Slop, MANTIS, Undercovers, and Get Christy Love. Never saw The Last Dragon, but it seems like a movie that could be remade. As could The Wiz, on the big screen again.

Black Panther 2 is coming out in May 2022

By Julia Alexander  Aug 24, 2019

In the Studios panel at D23, Marvel Studios co-president Kevin Feige confirmed that Black Panther 2 has been scheduled for release on May 6, 2022. Director Ryan Coogler said the team is “taking their time with it” in order to get it right.

That places Black Panther 2 directly between some of Marvel’s new franchises, like The Eternals, and other series installments, like Thor: Love and Thunder and Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness.

If San Diego Comic-Con was Marvel Studios’ way of ushering in Phase Four of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Disney’s biennial trade show D23 was a reminder that sequels to important movies are still coming.

Unlike Star Wars, which is taking a theatrical break after lackluster box office and critical success for spinoffs Rogue One: A Star Wars Story and Solo: A Star Wars Story, Marvel Studios shows no sign of slowing down. It’s only getting bigger. Many of Marvel’s upcoming sequels will intertwine directly with Disney+ series. The events of Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness will reference the Disney+ series WandaVision, for example.

Feige didn’t comment on whether movies like Black Panther 2 will relate to series like WandaVision, The Falcon and The Winter Soldier, or Loki, but don’t be surprised if they do.

What If...? Episode to Feature Black Panther Leading the Guardians of the Galaxy
By JK SCHMIDT

The new Marvel Studios series What If...? will be a first for the superhero powerhouse when it premieres on the Disney+ streaming service, not only because it will feature major twists on the movies we know and love but because it's the company's first foray into animation. This affords the unlimited imagination that the medium allows without having to worry about budgets, while including the original actors who will reprise their iconic roles. And now showrunner Ashley Bradley is revealing new details about the upcoming series, including an episode that will see Black Panther become the leader of the Guardians Of The Galaxy.

Bradley spoke with Discussing Film about the series, teasing an episode of What If...? where T'Challa end up as Star-Lord.

"On the reel [shown at D23], there is this image of a Star-Lord T'Challa because we wanted to see what if the worlds of Black Panther and the Guardians of the Galaxy collided," explained Bradley. "That was taking two universes, two to three movies, kind of twisting them in new ways."

She went on to say that fans received some epic moments in Avengers: Endgame that showed some of their favorite characters interacting for the first time, and What If...? will continue to follow down that path.

"With Star-Lord T'Challa obviously, we want to know how T'Challa ended up in other planets? What’s the story there? It’s super exciting to work on because again, it’s seeing these characters and seeing the combination of character interactions," Bradley added. "Seeing the Avengers hang out together and more recently Endgame gave us the fun of seeing something like Ant-Man hanging out with the Hulk. What If…? is taking it a step further."

The showrunner previously explained that she originally wanted to do an episode where Jane Foster became Thor but was quickly shut down by Marvel.

"Our first weeks there I very strongly pitched doing The Mighty Thor- Jane Foster Thor. Jane wielding the hammer, I believe first happened in a What If comic," Bradley said. "I was very poignantly told that was never going to happen. I got a little angry and thought, 'Why, because they don’t want a woman holding the hammer?' I was very politely told, 'No we’re doing it.' I was like what? 'We’re doing it in the movies. You can’t do it.' I was like, seriously? They responded with, 'Please don’t tell anyone. We’re with you on it, it’s an amazing idea. Taika Waititi wants to write it.' At that point, you just go 'Then Taika Waiti can write it!'"

What If...? does not yet have a release date for Disney+.

So, does this mean T'challa was kidnapped as a child and raised by Yondu?

This is how director Ryan Coogler (Creed) chose to block and direct this fighting scene from “Black Panther”. Interesting side by side.

Marvel Rising: Operation Shuri introduces the fan-favorite character Shuri, voiced by Daisy Lightfoot (Marvel Avengers: Black Panther’s Quest) to the Marvel Rising universe in a 22-minute animated special. The lives of the Secret Warriors are turned upside down when faced with their latest mission: hang out with Shuri, the Crown Princess of Wakanda, and show her what it’s like to be an ordinary teenager. But nothing’s ordinary when you’re dealing with one of the smartest and most famous people on the planet.



Shuri is ordinary by Wakandan standards, she is normal. She is not an alien, mutant, cyborg, mutate, mermaid or unicorn. She doen't have blue skin or fur. She can't stretch and contort her body. She wasn't bathed in either cosmic or gamma radiation. She is ordinary.

This is how the missteps for all things Black Panther and Wakanda start. To imply that Shuri has to be shown by non Wakandan females what it is to be ordinary when they themselves are the furthest thing from such, unmasks the true mission of enculturation.

Shuri has to go on shopping sprees at the mall. She has to post her whereabouts and what she's eating on IG,FB and Twitter. Shuri has to learn how to put on makeup and be seen going to the clubs of which she is under age.

She's got to get drunk and tongue a boy down while he clumsily tries to undress her. From there she has to knock him out with one of her Panther gauntlets for getting too fresh. Next, the sleep over with the girls complete with all that insipid laughter. Wake with a really bad hangover. Throw in the stereotype and she finds herself pregnant.

Being a super hero is not about being ordinary. Sure there is some mundanity in their lives but it is their exceptionality that defines them. More particularly if dealing with a unconquered, culturally autonomous and insular Afrakan people one has has to delve into the normalcy that defines them.

Kevin Feige Planning To Reboot All The Marvel TV Characters In The MCU
By David James

With a Thanos-like click of his fingers, Kevin Feige is reportedly planning to render every single existing Marvel TV show non-canon and reboot the characters for the MCU. According to our sources, this means that, as far as MCU continuity is concerned, the thrills of Daredevil never happened, the Runaways never ran away, the Punisher didn’t punish anyone and the Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.may as well have stayed at home. Instead, the characters used in the Marvel TV shows will be rebooted, either for inclusion in the Disney Plus lineup or perhaps on the big screen.

For those that have been watching the awkward relationship between Marvel Studios’ film and TV divisions, this isn’t wholly surprising. Despite early claims that the Marvel TV shows would be as crucial to the MCU’s ongoing story as the films, most quickly realized that they weren’t. In the end, the crossovers between them amounted to a few references to the Battle of New York and the odd throwaway line that mentioned things like ‘the big green guy’ and so on. By the later seasons of the Netflix shows, they weren’t even bothering to CGI Avengers Tower into the New York skyline and Thanos’ Snap went bizarrely unmentioned.

Their separation is largely the result of the long feud between Kevin Feige and Marvel Entertainment President Ike Perlmutter. The two have repeatedly clashed on political grounds, with Feige wanting to introduce a more obscure and diverse cast of heroes to the films (a philosophy that’s resulted in huge success stories like Guardians of the Galaxy and Black Panther), while Perlmutter argued for more traditional white, male heroes. With Feige’s work bringing in billions at the box office, he won the fight and Perlmutter was sidelined by Disney and tasked with overseeing the less prestigious TV projects (with Jeph Loeb handling the creative aspects).

Now, with Kevin Feige newly installed as Chief Creative Officer at Marvel, it seems he’s clearing house and wants to do his own takes on the Marvel TV properties. There are reports he’s eager to start with Ghost Rider, but with the rights to the Netflix characters reverting wholly to Marvel Studios in 2020, I’d expect to see a new and fully MCU integrated Daredevil before too long.

And on that note, our sources – the same ones who recently brought us accurate scoops such as Wiccan will debut in WandaVision, General Ross will appear in She-Hulk and the Inhumans will show up in Ms. Marvel – say that the Man Without Fear is likely to be played by Charlie Cox again. From what we understand, Feige still wants Cox as Daredevil, Jon Bernthal as the Punisher and a few more actors to reprise their roles, but for the most part, the TV characters will all be recast and whether they’re brought to life by a new performer or not, they’ll all be rebooted, with the super producer basically wanting to wipe Marvel TV’s efforts from continuity/existence.

There’s a lot to digest here and the specifics of how it’ll all work out are still unclear, but our sources tell us that Feige doesn’t care for these shows at all and is happy to just pretend they never happened. Which, quite frankly, is probably for the best.

5 Reasons Black Panther Should Lead The MCU's Next Saga (& 5 Why It Should Be Captain Marvel)
BY BEN SHERLOCK



The Marvel Cinematic Universe just wrapped up its first saga, the 23-part Infinity Saga, and the studio is wasting no time in entering into its next, as-yet-untitled saga. Exactly which character was the star of the Infinity Saga is debatable – Tony Stark provided its emotional core, while Steve Rogers was the leader of the Avengers – but one thing is clear: the MCU’s next saga will need a new star. With Tony and Steve retired from the franchise, the burden of leading the MCU from Phase 4 onwards will fall to either Black Panther or Captain Marvel.

10 BLACK PANTHER: HE’S A BORN LEADER

Naturally, whoever leads the next saga in the MCU will need to be a strong leader. As the son of a king, T’Challa was born to be a leader, so taking over the Avengers and the MCU would be a logical step for him. T’Challa is a lot like Steve Rogers, who arguably led the Infinity Saga and was similarly a born leader, which might have contributed to why the two became such good friends throughout Phase 3.

On the other hand, Tony Stark wasn’t a born leader, and many Marvel fans would say that he was the star of the Infinity Saga, not Steve, so maybe it’s not essential.


9 CAPTAIN MARVEL: SHE WAS LESS INTEGRAL THAN T’CHALLA IN THE INFINITY SAGA

Since she only just got her origin story on the back end of the Infinity Saga and only appeared briefly in Avengers: Endgame to give the original six members of the team one last chance to shine in their big finale, Carol Danvers is a relatively fresh face in the MCU. The Infinity Saga wouldn’t be all that different without her. T’Challa, on the other hand, played a very important role in the Infinity Saga.

From his first appearance in Captain America: Civil War to his protection of the Vision in Avengers: Infinity War to being the first hero out of the portals in Avengers: Endgame, Black Panther was one of the stars of the Infinity Saga, so it would make more sense to give Carol the bigger role going forward.


8 BLACK PANTHER: HE’S ALWAYS ON EARTH

Captain Marvel’s attendance in the MCU was established as pretty spotty in Avengers: Endgame, with the flimsy excuse given that she’s off on other planets, helping alien races who don’t have an Avengers team to protect them. But T’Challa is the monarch of a nation on Earth, so he won’t be galivanting off into outer space any time soon. Black Panther has gone cosmic in the comics in the past couple of years, but that’s a very recent change to the character. Traditionally, he’s been Earth-bound, just like Iron Man and Captain America. Earth’s mightiest heroes need a mighty hero from Earth to lead them.
7 CAPTAIN MARVEL: SHE WOULD ALLOW THE MCU TO EXTEND ITS COSMIC SIDE

The Infinity Saga focused heavily on Earth-based stories with a couple of dalliances into the cosmic side of things, and it looks as though the next stage of the MCU will be focusing more on the mystical side of things (Shang-Chi, Doctor Strange, Scarlet Witch, the multiverse etc.) and the cosmic side of things (the Eternals, more Waititi-helmed Thor, the Guardians of the Galaxy etc.).

As the self-appointed protector of the universe, Carol Danvers would be the perfect character to lead the MCU into a more expansive cosmic presence. She’s dedicated herself to aiding any planet or race that’s in danger.


6 BLACK PANTHER: FANS WANT TO SEE MORE OF WAKANDA



The MCU has always been renowned for its immersive world-building, but the production design of Wakanda is iconographic. Its Afrofuturistic visual style, pioneered by Black Panther director Ryan Coogler, is not only aesthetically pleasing; it’s also entirely unique. The planets seen in Guardians of the Galaxy are sumptuous and enticing, but planets like that can be found basically anywhere in the science fiction genre.

Wakanda is a world of its own, and Marvel fans are excited to continue revisiting it for years to come. If Black Panther takes over the MCU, then we’ll be heading back to Wakanda more than we already will be.


5 CAPTAIN MARVEL: SHE HAS A BIGGER RESPONSIBILITY

Black Panther has plenty of responsibility as the ruler of an entire country that he is guiding into a more progressive and open-minded future. But Carol Danvers has accepted an even bigger responsibility: keeping the entire universe safe from genocidal tyrants like Thanos and oppressive militaries like the Kree Starforce. If Black Panther was going to lead the entire MCU, then Wakanda would become the focus of the whole universe.

If Captain Marvel takes over, then the possibilities for storytelling and world-building will remain endless. With Carol, even the sky isn’t the limit, because she can literally fly through space.


4 BLACK PANTHER: HE’S MORE EMBEDDED IN THE WIDER MCU

Carol Danvers might be good friends with Nick Fury and pen pals with a couple of Avengers, but she’s pretty much removed from the wider MCU. Black Panther, on the other hand, is embedded in the wider universe. He took in Bucky and got Shuri to de-brainwash him.

He took in the Vision when Thanos was coming and teamed up with Earth’s mightiest heroes to fight off the Black Order. And in the non-superpowered corners of the world, T’Challa is expanding Wakanda’s resources to help less advantaged people. So, it makes more sense to make him the star of the MCU’s future.


3 CAPTAIN MARVEL: SHE’S THE MCU’S MOST POWERFUL HERO YET

In the months leading up to Captain Marvel’s debut in the MCU, Marvel continually stressed that she was the most powerful Avenger yet, with power on Thanos’ level, but then in Avengers: Endgame, there was just one little fight between the two and Thanos beat Captain Marvel. This turned out to be more narratively satisfying, since it placed the focus on the original Avengers and gave Tony Stark a chance at closure by being the one to take out the Mad Titan.


But it also made Marvel’s insistence that Carol could defeat Thanos singlehandedly a little confusing and redudant. However, if she takes over the MCU from here, it makes perfect sense – we all know she’s the most powerful hero in the franchise, and that makes her qualified.


2 BLACK PANTHER: HE’S MORE POPULAR AMONG FANS



Both Black Panther and Captain Marvel’s initial solo outings cracked $1 billion at the worldwide box office, but the former has proven to be a lot more popular among fans than the latter. Obviously, there’s a small subset of the fan base that hates Carol simply because she’s a woman, but going beyond that, her arrogance and condescension towards her fellow heroes seem to have rubbed a lot of impartial fans the wrong way.

T’Challa’s good-hearted nature, his drive to do the right thing, and his refusal to quip have made him both an inspiring superhero and a breath of fresh air.


1 CAPTAIN MARVEL: SHE’S AN AVENGER

Black Panther has been heavily involved with the Avengers – from joining Iron Man in the fight for the Sokovia Accords to giving Captain America political asylum in Wakanda to battling Thanos with the Avengers not once, but twice – but apart from Cap making him an honorary member on the battlefield in Endgame (“Avengers...assemble!”), he’s not an official member of the team, nor does he seem interested in becoming one.

A character can’t really lead the MCU if they’re not a bona fide member of the Avengers, because the Avengers movies anchor the whole franchise, and Captain Marvel worked closely with the team in Endgame.

Black Panther 2’s Title May Have Been Revealed
By Scott Campbell

It would be fair to say that Black Panther wasn’t just another comic book movie, it was a genuine cultural phenomenon. Ryan Coogler’s entry in the Marvel Cinematic Universe dominated the conversation for months on its way to earning over $1.3bn at the box office and becoming the first superhero film to ever be nominated for Best Picture at the Academy Awards.

Naturally, a sequel is one of the most highly-anticipated releases in the Marvel Cinematic Universe’s future despite the massive number of film and television projects announced by the studio for Phase Four and beyond, and Black Panther 2 was officially revealed to the surprise of nobody at the recent D23 Expo, with a May 2022 release date.

No plot details are known at this point, but it’s expected that the majority of the first installment’s main cast will return for further adventures in Wakanda along with some new faces, but we’ll need to wait and see how Phase Four pans out before any educated guesses can be made about what lies in wait for T’Challa.

That being said, sources close to We Got This Covered – the same ones who revealed that the real Mandarin would be the villain in Shang-Chi and that the Inhumans will be rebooted in Ms. Marvel, both of which have since been confirmed – have told us that the movie’s title may end up being Black Panther: Lost Kingdom, which follows the typical Marvel Studios template of giving the majority of their sequels a subtitle.

While the potential moniker doesn’t reveal what direction the story could go, it figures that the post-credits scene of Black Panther where Chadwick Boseman’s king revealed Wakanda’s status as a technologically advanced civilization after keeping it hidden from the world for so long will factor heavily into the narrative. Beyond that, though, we can’t speculate too much else on what the title hints at.

It should also be noted that this current title is subject to change – remember how many different titles Endgame went through? From what we understand, Black Panther: Lost Kingdom is only what it’s being called right now and as production continues, Marvel can always decide on something else. But if this is indeed what they end up settling on, tell us, would you be alright with it? Sound off down below and let us know.
