Will Disney ever build a ‘Black Panther’ 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 deserves an Oscar – but is it a feminist film? No way | Minna Salami

The film has been praised for its strong women, but Wakanda, its imagined African country, is a patriarchal monarchyNext Sunday, Marvel’s Black Panther will compete for the best picture award at the Oscars. If it wins, it will not only be a first-time victory for a superhero movie, it will also be the first time a film that celebrates black culture will take the award. After all, unlike the few black films previously nominated, Black Panther is not a story about black suffering – it is a salute ...

'Black Panther' was built around one essential line of dialogue that director Ryan Coogler feared Marvel would cut

Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige wanted "Black Panther" to be built around the villain Killmonger's final line of dialogue. "It was one of the best lines we ever read," Feige told The Hollywood Reporter. It was also the one line from the script that director Ryan Coogler feared Marvel would want to cut. Director Ryan Coogler feared a now-essential line of dialogue from "Black Panther" would be cut. But it ended up laying the groundwork for the entire movie. Marvel Studios president Ke...

Oscar-Nominated Production Designers Infused Their Films With Elements of Fantasy

The films up for this year’s Oscar for production design are set in specific times and places, but a lot of invention — and inventiveness — went into creating their physical surroundings. We all know that the African kingdom of Wakanda in “Black Panther” is mythical, but it’s not the only example of fabrication among the […]

‘Black Panther’ Costume Designer Ruth Carter on Her Third Oscar Nomination and Why Costumes Should Not Look Like Costumes [Interview]

To read the list of films that costume designer Ruth Carter has worked on in her 30-year-plus career is to move through the history of black cinema in that time period, having worked extensively (in some cases, almost exclusively) with such filmmakers as Spike Lee , Robert Townsend , John Singleton and Lee Daniels .

How ‘The Godfather’ Influenced Ryan Coogler’s ‘Black Panther’ Ending

‘Avengers: Endgame’ Spoiler Possibly Revealed by an Audi Commercial

The Consumer Electronics Show is happening right now in Las Vegas. And while 99% of what’s happening there really doesn’t concern film and television news, at least one little piece of information coming out of the electronics convention is worth talking about, because it involves a certain revelation about Avengers: Endgame. If there’s one thing that consistently ruins plot points and details in blockbuster movies, it’s cross-promotional materials, whether they’re toys or product placement dea...

‘Captain Marvel’ Star Samuel L. Jackson Talks the Origins and Legacy of Nick Fury [Set Visit Interview]

In May 2018, I visited the set of Marvel Studios and Disney’s next superhero movie, Captain Marvel, which was shooting in Los Angeles. On set, we had a chance to talk with Samuel L Jackson, who is reprising his role as Nick Fury in this prequel. He walked in the room with performance capture tracking dots on his face, perhaps to help with the de-aging visual effect that we’ve seen in past Marvel films. Or perhaps they were shooting a scene where we find out how Fury loses his eye, as he also ha...

‘Black Panther’ Editor Michael Shawver on Working With Ryan Coogler and Being “Popular” at the Oscars [Interview]

Editor Michael Shawver first met Ryan Coogler nearly eight years ago. They were both film students at the University of Southern California and shared a passion for films about important issues, basketball, and Batman. Impressed by Coogler’s short films that he had directed in class, Shawver suggested that they team up, and the pair have been basically inseparable ever since — working together on all of Coogler’s major films, from Fruitvale Station, to Creed, and finally, to Black Panther.

The Art Of Black Panther Book Review

A fascinating and highly entertaining film from start to end, Marvel’s Black Panther film is also one of the studio’s biggest hits to date. This book takes the reader on an immersive journey behind the incredible concept art created during the pre-production stage of the film. The amount of world building required to create a believable, imaginary African country Wakanda is quite daunting and it really shows in the many environment concept pieces featured in the book.
