‘Black Panther 2’ Will Start Filming in July 2021, Adds ‘Narco: Mexico’ Actor to Cast

In the wake of Black Panther star Chadwick Boseman‘s surprising and tragic death, we assumed that Marvel Studios and director Ryan Coogler would put the planned Black Panther 2 on the back burner while they grieved and figured out the best way to move forward with the sequel to the billion dollar hit. But apparently they’ve already figured things out – or at least to such a degree that a production start date has already been set. A new report says that Black Panther 2 will begin filming in Jul...

In this short video featuring behind-the-scenes footage from those films and interviews from his colleagues, Marvel pays tribute to the best possible person they could have gotten to play that role. I watched Black Panther for the third or fourth time over the week...

The world knew star Chadwick Boseman as T’Challa, the fearless king of Wakanda who would do anything to protect his people.

Actor Chadwick Boseman Has Died from Colon Cancer at 43 Years Old

Very sad news to report. American actor Chadwick Boseman has died after a years long battle with colon cancer. The news was officially announced on Boseman's Twitter, stating that "he died in his home, with his wife and family by his side."

Ta-Nehisi Coates's "Black Panther and the Crew" is a powerfully relevant superhero story about Black lives, police brutality, and US history

I have been frequently awed by Ta-Nehisi Coates's thoughtful observations on politics and race in America. But I'll be honest: I was somewhat disappointed by his first run of Black Panther comics. It felt, to me, more like a Coates essay accompanied by some action sequences. The ideas were there, and the art by Brian Stelfreeze was spectacular, but it just didn't grip me as a dramatic narrative. (His Captain America, illustrated by Leinil Francis Yu and others, has left me similarly cold.) Fortu...

“Black Panther” Star Chadwick Boseman’s Dramatic Weight Loss Causes Concern

Is Chadwick Boseman OK? That’s a question many fans are asking after the actor posted a video on social media showing that he’s lost a LOT of weight. In honor of Jackie Robinson Day, the “Black Panther” star—who played Jackie Robinson in the 2013 biopic “42”—took to Instagram Wednesday night (Apr. 15) to announce the launch of “Operation 42,” an initiative to help hospitals serving African American communities that have been hit the hardest by the coronavirus pandemic. However, fans were paying ...

What’s the state of black film today? These experts explore the range of African-American movie achievements

Melvin Van Peebles had directed a few short films in the late ’50s when he left San Francisco for Hollywood with the goal of trading his day job on a cable car for a career behind the camera. “They said, ‘We don’t need cable car operators as film directors,’” said his son Mario Van Peebles, a second-generation filmmaker, as he introduced a newly restored version of his father’s first feature “The Story of a Three-Day Pass” at the Egyptian Theatre in Los Angeles on Sunday, Feb. 16. “He said, ‘No,...

Kevin Feige Misses Marvel’s Underdog Days, Says a Transgender Character is Heading to the MCU, Updates on ‘Shang-Chi’ & More

It’s not controversial to suggest that Kevin Feige‘s run at Marvel Studios is the most impressive aspect of mainstream pop culture storytelling of the past ten years. But Feige doesn’t want fans to look at Marvel’s successful track record and just blindly accept everything that the studio releases. In a new Q&A, the acclaimed producer talks about continuing to work hard to make the best movies possible, and offers updates on Eternals, Shang-Chi, future Disney+ shows, and more. Feige recently...

The Status of Every Major MCU Character After ‘Avengers: Endgame’

Avengers: Endgame has been billed as a final chapter in the Marvel Cinematic Universe as we know it, and, well, it is. Definitively. While there are still plenty of adventures to be had and sequels to be made, watching this film is like turning the final page of a large book. There’s a powerful sense of closure, even as you know a second volume is on the way. But this movie gives us a chance to regroup and find our bearings. It puts the remaining pieces of the Marvel universe together so we can...

Will Disney ever build a Wakanda theme park land?

If “Black Panther” wins the Academy Award for best picture this weekend, I wish the producers behind the Marvel super hero movie would celebrate their Oscar by shouting “I’m going to Disneyland!” Because there’s no film location out there right now that I’d rather see re-created as a theme park land than Wakanda. Sure, Disneyland is getting a new Star Wars land this summer. Then a Stark Industries-themed super hero land is coming to Disney California Adventure the year after that. No one would b...

Black Panther Composer Ludwig Göransson On His Surreal Oscar Nom And Virgo Work Ethic

Ludwig Göransson’s morning was relatively chill for a first-time Oscar nominee. He woke up at the somewhat reasonable hour of 5:15 a.m. to watch Kumail Nanjiani and Tracee Ellis Ross announce the first wave of Academy Award nominations from the comfort of his own bed, streaming it on his wife’s phone. When his name was read as one of the nominees for Best Original Score, the Black Panther composer understandably freaked out. But a few phone calls later — one from his director and good friend Ry...
