I wonder if this is hear on this cover..

If it is then either Evans had some insider knowledge, a private screening of BP months ago, or he's truly just a smart muthaf*cker.

I think he is the latter. Look at how he handles his series.

Black Panther: Why TíChalla and Nakia are the best Marvel couple

Black Panther delivers one of the freshest and subtlest Marvel romances to date, and itís not even about them falling in love.

Heads up! This article contains spoilers for Black Panther.

Itís hard to put a finger on what exactly makes a romance subplot work. A good one can give a movie a strong emotional core; suffering through a bad one is like an all-you-can-eat buffet of those chalky candy hearts. Thereís no question as to which side of the spectrum TíChalla and Nakia fall on in Black Panther.

So many things went right with them. The actors had great chemistry. The writing was strong but not overbearing. Each character was interesting on their own, while also bringing out the best in each other. Not to mention the fact that TíChalla was adorkable with Nakia from the very beginning.

But plenty of romance subplots can claim those same traits, and still feel like an annoying departure from the real story. So what makes Black Panther different?

Mainly, the fact that the movie doesnít try to cram an entire falling-in-love arc into a single movie. Itís a challenge to portray two people meeting for the first time and then convincingly falling in love by the end of a single movie; shrinking that kind of emotional complexity into a subplot is nearly impossible.

Itís not the genesis of a relationship

Instead, when we enter the narrative Nakia and TíChalla have already been in a relationship, and broke it off some time before the movie begins. When they meet again for the first time on screen theyíre both carrying a relationshipís worth of history with them, and you can see that in the way the characters interact. Or, uh, fail to. But itís hard to blame TíChalla for freezing; I too would absolutely cease to function when coming face to face with Lupita Nyongío.

Making  TíChalla and Nakia exes is a stroke of genius to quickly establish emotional tension (the core of any good romance), but it gets even better. We donít have to suffer through the tiresome bickering and airing of grievances that so many ďgetting back with the exĒ relationships rely on. Instead, TíChalla and Nakia broke up simply because their lives went in different directions. Nakia wanted to help people in a way that she wouldnít be able to do as his queen, and TíChalla respected that.

Itís always awesome to see a female character choose her own ambitions over a relationship that would hold her back, but what makes this such a fine vintage of romantic perfection is the fact that Nakia and TíChalla are still so totally in love. You can see it in the way theyíre not afraid to challenge each other, as well as the gentle, longing stares. Their relationship steps onto the screen already living and breathing. (Also, Okoye pointedly telling them to stop flirting while on a mission is totally priceless.)

Black Panther doesnít try to sell us on two characters going from zero to true love in the course of a two-hour movie. Instead, this is a story exploring how two people who love each other can reach a point where both of their dreams and responsibilities are compatible, rather than keeping them apart. It was such a beautiful, mature and utterly believable romance.

Then again, WíKabi kneeling in surrender after Okoye tells him sheíd straight-up murder him for her country was basically peak romance for me. Can we get a spin-off movie solely about their marriage, please?
