Black Panther origin story

While a lot of the early reactions to Captain America: Civil War praised the new depiction of Spider-Man, that doesn’t mean Black Panther (Chadwick Boseman) isn’t every bit as entertaining as the web slinger. Marvel should have no problem getting unfamiliar audiences invested in this character.

Below, Marvel studio president Kevin Feige tells us a bit about the upcoming Black Panther standalone film, which is being helmed by Ryan Coogler, and explains why it doesn’t necessarily have to be the Black Panther origin story.

creed 2 director

It may have been almost entirely snubbed at the Oscar nominations, but Creed is still a miracle of a movie and one the best entires in the entire Rocky series. And while Michael B. Jordan provides fresh blood and Sylvester Stallone supplies plenty of old soul, the film really works because of director Ryan Coogler. His stylish, intimate direction is a shot of adrenaline for a 40-year old franchise, leaving the door open for, yes, a sequel. Or even an entire new series of films.

Unfortunately, some super-sized commitments may keep Coogler from committing to the next chapter of the Adonis Creed saga.

CREED

Creed just crossed the $100 million mark domestically at the box office. By this point, following the glowing reviews and the tremendous audience response, it’s fair to say director Ryan Coogler hit this sequel/spinoff out of the park. The film left you excited to see more of Adonis Creed (Michael B. Jordan), Rocky Balboa (Sylvester Stallone), and Bianca (Tessa Thompson) taking on more personal and physical challenges.

Following the success of Creed, it’s been confirmed we will see a sequel, but it’s only a matter of when. Find out more about the Creed sequel after the jump.

Creed Long Shot

I don’t know a single person who doesn’t love Creed. Director Ryan Coogler‘s (Fruitvale Station) sequel is already a beloved success, which might lead to more sequels and possibly awards nominations (and another big project for the director). One of the film’s most talked about scenes features Adonis Creed (Michael B. Jordan) in his first professional boxing match, depicted in one seamless long take, and now the director himself explains how they pulled it off.

Watch Ryan Coogler break down the Creed long shot after the jump.

creed single shot

I think most of us can agree that Creed is one of the best movies of this Holiday season, if not the entire year. Its not just a nostalgia sequel/spin-off as some have written it off as, but a great movie. And since seeing the film two weeks ago there is one sequence which I can’t get out of my head, Adonis’s first professional match as a boxer which is presented in one single shot. Was it really one single take, or was it cleverly stitched together like the scenes were in Birdman? Find out how the Creed single shot boxing sequence was accomplished, after the jump.

creed review

Creed is a very, very good movie… but it’s a perfect Rocky movie. Here is that familiar, tried and true template given a fresh coat of paint and lovingly restored by people who give a damn. If you’ve ever liked any of the films in this series, this spin-off is going to get your blood pumping and eyes leaking. It’s the movie you want.

However, the real miracle of Creed is that isn’t anything like the Rocky sequels. The follow-ups to the original masterpiece (which is one of the best movies ever made) took a turn for the ridiculous. They got silly and began to lean too hard on series star Sylvester Stallone‘s action hero persona. The warmth, the charm, and the honesty of the first film was resurrected for 2006’s Rocky Balboa, but it’s back in full force in Creed. This spin-off, which finds an aging Rocky training the son of the late Apollo Creed, is second only to the first movie, and that’s because it recognizes what the first movie did so right.

Like them or not (and Rocky III and Rocky IV do offer some absurd pleasures), the Rocky sequels feel like Saturday morning cartoon versions of a genuinely great movie. Creed does the impossible: it coexists with them while avoiding everything they did wrong.
