Black Panther Dora Milaje

Black Panther is easily one of the best Marvel Studios films to come out in recent years. And I am not just saying that because it is the most recent film to be released by the studio. The way it addresses social issues, representation, identity, and feminism and still maintains its superhero feel is incredible.

Now that Marvel is turning its attention to Avengers: Infinity War, Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige is talking about Black Panther‘s success. Check out what he had to say about it, the chances for a sequel and possible spinoffs, and more below.

Warning – SPOILERS for AMC’s The Walking Dead…

We haven’t had a new episode of The Walking Dead since December’s mid-Season 8 finale, which ended with both hope and sadness for Rick Grimes and his group, as well as for the fans. There was just one thing on everyone’s mind going into tonight’s mid-season premiere, Episode 8.9 “Honor,” and that was, is this really the end for Carl?

Rick’s teenaged son — who we’ve watched grow up on the show from a little boy who wouldn’t stay in the house like he was told to the natural leader he’s become — was bitten by a walker in the previous episode. And the bite was not on an appendage that could be amputated to avoid death, like we’ve seen before. No, this bite is on his torso, which, in this universe, means certain death. But by the previous episode’s end, Carl was not yet dead. Could that mean that there is a way for him to cheat death?

Marvel Studios Chadwick Boseman as Black Panther

One thing I forgot to mention in my review of Marvel’ Black Panther – something I regret not putting in – is the fact that the music is an excellent complement to the superhero film. Produced by Kendrick Lamar, the soundtrack is easily one of the most anticipated Marvel soundtracks to date. Probably because it’s one of the few that is worthwhile.

So if you want to take a listen, then I suggest you check out the Spotify embed here below for clips; the full soundtrack is streaming through the Spotify app.

Marvel Studios' Black Panther

Black Panther
Director: Ryan Coogler
Screenwriter: Ryan Coogler, Joe Robert Cole
Cast: Chadwick Boseman, Michael B. Jordan, Lupita Nyong’o, Danai Gurira, Martin Freeman, Daniel Kaluuya, Letitia Wright, Winston Duke, Angela Bassett, Forest Whitaker, and Andy Serkis
Distributor: Walt Disney Studios
Rated PG-13 | 134 Minutes
Release Date: February 16, 2018

Never has a superhero film done more for culture, identity, and representation than Black Panther. Director Ryan Coogler’s standout Marvel film forgoes the traditional superhero blockbuster and gives us a redefined blockbuster that subverts all preconceived notions of what a superhero film should be. By emphasizing on the often overlooked themes like culture, identity, and representation, the film finally gives a loud voice to those who would otherwise be supporting or background characters. What we get is an impressive superhero film that is unique and special.

Black Panther is by far the most political Marvel film to date, and by exploring those aforementioned themes it allows it to stand on its own. By drawing its inspiration from films like James Bond and shows like Game of Thrones, this is a superhero film unlike any other that will leave audiences speechless. Check out the full review below.

‘Black Panther’ On Empowering Its Complex and Fearless Female Cast

Black Panther Okoye and Nakia

While the title of Marvel Studios’ upcoming film is Black Panther, the female cast members are really the standout characters of the film. All have their roles to play, but none of them adhere to the tired old tropes of what a female character is supposed to be in a superhero film. Because in Wakanda, the female characters are celebrated as queens, spies, bodyguards, and inventors. And trust me when I say this, the women of Wakanda are people you do not want to fight. Marvel fans got to see a glimpse of them in Captain America: Civil War where Ayo stepped in front of Black Widow and threatened to forcibly remove her if she did not get out of T’Challa’s way.

Now we get to see more of that fearlessness in Black Panther. The film has not one, not two, not three, but four powerful female characters who are ready to step up and fight to protect and for honor. We had a chance to sit down with our fellow journalists during the film’s press junket where Lupita Nyong’o (Nakia), Danai Gurira (Okoye), Angela Bassett (Ramonda), and Letitia Wright (Shuri) shared their thoughts on working with director Ryan Coogler on the film, and how it paved the way for more representation and culture to play a role in a film. Check out what they had to say here below.

How Marvel Studios’ ‘Black Panther’ Takes A Step Forward For Representation

Black Panther

In Marvel Studios’ decade-long run, 17 successful blockbusters have featured a white character as the lead. However, Captain America: Civil War was the first small baby step in the right direction when it introduced Black Panther into the Marvel Cinematic Universe. The events of that film would lead up to the Wakandian king’s standalone film, Black Panther.

But Black Panther is so much more than the title character’s first standalone film. It represents what a superhero means to a person of color. Representation matters, and as we move towards a brighter future, Marvel Studios will have more and more films that are a reflection of today’s society. That’s why Black Panther is such an important film.

We had the chance to sit down with the cast and creators Chadwick Boseman (T’Challa), Lupita Nyong’o (Nakia), Michael B. Jordan (“Erik Killmonger), Danai Gurira (Okoye), Angela Bassett (Ramonda), Forest Whitaker (Zuri), Andy Serkis (Ulysses Klaue), Martin Freeman (Everett K Ross), Daniel Kaluuya (W’Kabi), Winston Duke (M’Baku), Letitia Wright (Shuri), director Ryan Coogler and producer Kevin Feige to talk about the importance of Black Panther, what making this MCU installment meant to them, and what they hope the film accomplishes. Check out what they had to say here below.

Black Panther director Ryan Coogler

Marvel Studios’ Black Panther is a revolutionary installment the MCU, their long-running superhero franchise. The title character, who symbolized the real-life Black Panther movement in America during the 1960s, has become an iconic figure in the African-American community. And after 50-plus years of spending time building its fanbase in comic books, T’Challa returns to the Marvel Cinematic Universe with his very own film. But the titular film isn’t your traditional superhero offering. It forgoes all those generic tropes of saving the world and focuses on real-world themes like culture, politics, identity, and representation.

Geeks Of Doom had a chance to sit down with their fellow journalists to talk to the cast, Chadwick Boseman (T’Challa), Lupita Nyong’o (Nakia), Michael B. Jordan (Erik Killmonger), Danai Gurira (Okoye), Angela Bassett (Ramonda), Forest Whitaker (Zuri), Andy Serkis (Ulysses Klaue), Martin Freeman (Everett K Ross), Daniel Kaluuya (W’Kabi), Winston Duke (M’Baku), and Letitia Wright (Shuri). Director Ryan Coogler and producer Kevin Feige were also present to talk about the upcoming film, how its important to have a character like Black Panther, the timeliness and relevancy, and more.
