We’ve still got a full year until Black Panther hits theaters, but production is underway on the first solo outing for the African superhero who was added to the Marvel Cinematic Universe in Captain America: Civil War. While the first official stills haven’t been unveiled just yet, a sneak peek at what we might see from the movie has arrived in the form of concept art.
The home video release of Doctor Strange has a sneak peek at the movies coming down the line in Phase 3 of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, and that includes Chadwick Boseman‘s franchise starter. The Black Panther concept art gives us a much better look at T’Challa’s homeland known as Wakanda, both the jungle and the sleek city. Read More »

When Marvel Studios head Kevin Feige announced Avengers: Infinity War, it was positioned as a two-film epic crossover event that would be the culmination of everything Marvel had planned up to that point. So with both films about to start shooting concurrently, I thought it might be fun to take a look at all the characters confirmed or rumored to be part of Avengers: Infinity War, and theorize how they may play into this story.

Captain America: Civil War established that Black Panther was a stone-cold badass from the nation of Wakanda. But what with all the superhero-on-superhero drama, it didn’t have much time to show us how he came to be the guy he is today. That job will fall on the Black Panther solo film being directed by Ryan Coogler. And one piece of that puzzle, apparently, lies in 1990s California. A new report indicates Black Panther will flash back to T’Challa’s formative years, when he was attending school in America. Learn more about what we can expect below. Read More »

Chadwick Boseman is a bonafide Marvel superhero now, having made his debut as Black Panther in Captain America: Civil War in May. But he’s a superhero fan, too, and like a lot of us he set aside some time earlier this year to check out that other big superhero-on-superhero movie, Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. Unfortunately, also like a lot of us, he came away disappointed.
Where Boseman differs from the general moviegoing public, though, is that he knows firsthand what the process of making a big-budget superhero movie is like. The Marvel star recently shared his thoughts on what exactly went wrong with Warner Bros. / DC’s Batman v Superman. Read More »

Chadwick Boseman‘s T’Challa may have made his Marvel Cinematic Universe debut in Captain America: Civil War, but he raises many questions that are still unanswered when the credits roll. Some of this is due to him being a supporting player in a movie that is really about Captain America and Iron Man, but much of it has to do with the fact that he’s going to be the subject of his own solo adventure, due out in 2018.
So fret not! Boseman himself says that any of your lingering Black Panther questions will be answered in the next movie.

The creation of the entirely computer generated superhero suit for Green Lantern in the 2011 film was so bad that star Ryan Reynolds mocked it when he played Deadpool earlier this year. However, it turns out that it’s possible to have an entire superhero suit created with visual effects, and you probably didn’t even know that it happened this past summer.
In Captain America: Civil War, we met T’Challa (Chadwick Boseman), a prince of Wakanda tragically turned king of the nation when an explosion kills his father. But in addition to being the new leader of his people, T’Challa is also the warrior known as Black Panther. And it turns out that the suit he wears just couldn’t be perfected practically, so they opted to have it created entirely with visual effects by Industrial Light & Magic. Find out more about the Black Panther suit created by visual effects after the jump. Read More »

The Marvel cinematic universe has tended to be lighter in tone, especially compared to the gloom and doom of the DC universe. But within the MCU, some films are funnier than others, with Ant-Man and Guardians of the Galaxy on one end of the spectrum and the relatively somber Captain America films on the other. And Black Panther? According to star Chadwick Boseman, it’ll fall on the “darker” and “grittier” side of things. Read More »

This winter brings Rogue One: A Star Wars Story to theaters. It will be the first theatrically release live-action Star Wars feature film that tells a story outside of the traditional trilogy narrative of the saga. Even though we still have months before we see that film in its entirety, the second movie in the Star Wars Story series is already in the works, and it will focus on the famous smuggler Han Solo before he became caught up with the Rebellion in Star Wars: A New Hope.
Alden Ehrenreich was previously confirmed to play Han Solo, taking the role played memorably by Harrison Ford, and just yesterday we learned that a young Lando Calrissian will be joining him at some point in the movie. Right now the hunt is on for an actor to play the scoundrel friend of Han Solo who made his debut in The Empire Strikes Back and received an expanded role in Return of the Jedi.
After the initial report surfaced, Donald Glover was said to be the frontrunner. But there’s no guarantee he’ll end up with the part when all is said and done, so we came up with a batch of 15 other possibilities for who could play young Lando Calrissian. Some of the choices are obvious, but we dug a little deeper for some of the options to come up with some lesser known names who could catch their big break like Harrison Ford did back in 1977.

Black Panther will start production in January. However, all we know for sure is that Creed director Ryan Coogler will be at the helm with Chadwick Boseman as the title superhero, Danai Gurira (The Walking Dead) as the head of the Dora Milaje (a security force that protects the King of Wakanda), Lupita Nyong’o as Nakia (one of the members of the Dora Milaje), and Michael B. Jordan as villain Erik Killmonger. But that changes today as one of those co-stars revealed some plot details.
While participating in some quick interviews at Comic-Con this past weekend, Lupita Nyong’o let slip some basic Black Panther plot details, including a revelation that the film has two villains. Get the details after the jump. Read More »
