Letitia Wright Denies Black Panther 2 Set Conduct Reports

Letitia Wright denies a report that claims she is expressing anti-vaccination views on the set of Black Panther 2. Following a few COVID-19 related delays, production of the sequel to 2018's Black Panther began in Atlanta this past June ahead of its July 2022 release date. Original director Ryan Coogler is returning along with writer Joe Robert Cole. However, the sequel had to be reworked considerably following the tragic passing of T'Challa actor Chadwick Boseman. The film will see Black Panth...

‘Black Panther’ Star Angela Bassett Says There Have Been Five Versions of the ‘Wakanda Forever’ Script

It’s honestly still a shock to think that Chadwick Boseman is no longer with us, taken away far too soon after a hard-fought (and entirely private) battle with cancer. In the meantime, Marvel head honcho Kevin Feige has tasked returning director Ryan Coogler with the seemingly gargantuan responsibility of moving ahead with the Black Panther franchise in Boseman’s honor. Now, Entertainment Weekly reports that star Angela Bassett is giving us some brief insight into the numerous changes necessita...

‘All Day and a Night’ Trailer: Jeffrey Wright and ‘Moonlight’ Star Ashton Sanders Are in a Cycle of Violence

Ryan Coogler rightfully earned loads of praise for directing and co-writing Marvel Studios’ Black Panther, but his co-writer on that film, Joe Robert Cole, sort of fell by the wayside in a lot of the discussions about that movie. Now Cole is putting a new film entirely on his own shoulders: he’s written and directed a generational drama for Netflix called All Day and a Night, and its trailer has just arrived. Check out Jeffrey Wright (Westworld) and Ashton Sanders (Moonlight) as a father and so...

Road to Endgame: ‘Black Panther’ is Afrofuturist Fantasy That Reveals the Best and Worst of America

(Welcome to  Road to Endgame , where we revisit the first 22 movies of the Marvel Cinematic Universe and ask, “How did we get here?” In this edition:  Black Panther , a Marvel film that finally tries to be honest about American politics) Black Panther is a sprawling superhero epic, the likes of which American cinema has never seen — or heard, for that matter, given the prominence of its African accents, treated anywhere from average to heroic; a far cry from the usual villainous or deris...

2019 Hugo Award finalists announced

The 2019 Hugo Award nominees have been announced; the Hugos will be presented this summer at the 2019 World Science Fiction Convention in Dublin, Ireland. Normally, I find that I've read and reviewed a huge slice of the year's finalists, but this year is different; I've done a lot less reading lately, partly because I wrote two books in 2018 and partly because the new EU Copyright Directive ate my life for about 10 months in the past year. I was a little sad to be so far behind the curve w...

Ryan Coogler Thought Marvel Would Cut Black Panther's Most Powerful Line

Black Panther’s Erik Killmonger is one of the MCU’s most complex villains. His heartbreaking dialogue toward the end of the film is one of his most powerful moments and perhaps something you wouldn’t normally expect to hear in a superhero film. Black Panther co-writers Ryan Coogler and Joe Robert Cole put it in there…Read more...

‘Call of Duty’ Movie Already Has a Sequel in the Works from ‘Black Panther’ Screenwriter Joe Robert Cole

Remember the Call of Duty movie? It’s based on the Activision video game franchise of the same name, which focuses on a team of soldiers completing missions in the dangerous battlefield of war. No, of course you don’t remember it, because the Call of Duty movie hasn’t been released yet. In fact, the movie doesn’t even have a cast or distributor yet. But that’s not stopping Activision from developing a sequel already. Nothing like putting the cart before the horse for the sake of efficiency. V...

Kevin Feige Thinks ‘Black Panther’ Deserves Oscar Recognition

As soon as it hit theaters in February of this year, Black Panther started to earn Oscar buzz. Yes, it was six months too early to start talking about the 2019 Oscars when we had just finished arguing about how “safe” The Shape of Water was, but goddammit, Black Panther was that good. And while superhero movies haven’t had a great track record at the Academy Awards, the prestigious awards ceremony has been kinder to genre fare in recent years. So what are the Black Panther Oscar chances? Well, ...

Netflix’s ‘Failsafe’ Reunites Michael B. Jordan With ‘Black Panther’ Writer

Killmonger was one of the greatest, most nuanced villains to come out of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, so it’s sad to know that he won’t return. But there’s one good thing to come out of Michael B. Jordan‘s tour-de-force performance in Black Panther: he’s not lacking for work. Jordan has been signing up for project after project, so we can count on seeing his talented face on the big and small screen for the foreseeable future. And his latest project is a doozy: Jordan will reunite with his Bl...

Watch the Original Black Panther Animated Series Online: All Six Episodes Now Available Thanks to Marvel

Last month, I was thrilled to learn of a talk coming to my town called “The Writers of Wakanda.” I scored a (free) ticket, thinking that maybe the massive blockbuster movie’s director/writer Ryan Coogler might make an appearance (or his co-writer Joe Robert Cole), or maybe one or more of the high-profile writers who have expanded the comic’s world recently, like Ta-Nehisi Coates, Roxanne Gay, or Nnedi Okorafor. Well, either there was some kind of bait-and-switch at work or I naively failed to re...

'Black Panther' writer says Tony Stark is 'douchey and disrespectful to women,' and might not have been popular if introduced today

During a SXSW panel on Saturday called "Superhero Science," "Black Panther" co-writer Joe Robert Cole called out Tony Stark a.k.a. Iron Man for being "douchey and disrespectful to women." Cole questioned whether Stark would be as successful with audiences if introduced today " with this very vapid, unintelligent president."   Joe Robert Cole, a co-writer of Marvel's "Black Panther," isn't so sure that Tony Stark, the Marvel Cinematic Universe's poster boy, would succeed as well with audienc...

‘Black Panther’ Review: Marvel’s Latest Adventure is a Triumph

I have never felt the way I do right now after watching a movie. Black Panther was so much more than I thought it would be. As a Black woman who has loved film her entire life, I know how much representation matters and I’ve never seen a movie on the scale of Black Panther. I knew going in that it is a Marvel Studios movie, which also means it’s a Disney movie. There are expectations that come with that. But in my head, no matter the hype, I figured they would never give us the same love and at...

Director Ryan Coogler Talks ‘Black Panther’s Unbroken Casino Fight Shot, Obama’s Influence, and More [Interview]

Don’t be fooled by Ryan Coogler‘s laid-back Oakland accent. The writer/director may have an affable personality, but he’s also a whip-smart filmmaker whose previous two movies, Fruitvale Station and Creed, proved he was well equipped to make the jump from intimate, character-based indies to the blockbuster big leagues. His latest movie, Black Panther, beautifully blends those sensibilities into one of Marvel Studios’ most exciting projects to date: a superhero film that embraces its cultural id...

Kendrick Lamar’s ‘Black Panther’ Soundtrack is Here

On Friday, February 9, 2018, the soundtrack for Black Panther dropped in anticipation of the the upcoming Friday release for the much buzzed about film. It’s what you’d expect from Kendrick Lamar, which means it’s brilliant. As an elite curator of the music business’ best, Lamar’s name goes hand-in-hand with what I can only hope is a cultural shift to a more diverse, creative cinema space. Black Panther is about empowerment, and no one represents empowerment better than Kendrick Lamar. The sound...
