#SDCC2016 Highlight: BLACK PANTHER

I’m not even going to play – you want excited? Let me tell you about the excitement I feel over Marvel’s forthcoming Black Panther movie. I was originally excited when I heard they had cast Chaswick Boseman as T’Challa, my gorgeous Prince from a secret country. From what I saw of Boseman he looked like T’Challa; right build, right facial expressions, damn dapper in a suit. When I saw Civil War I could barely contain my glee as he was introduced. He sounded like my T’Challa. Eloquent, dry sense of humor and fiercely protective of his country.

I spent most of the rest of CW bouncing in my chair whenever he came on the screen. You guys I’m not joking when I say that the pre-teen inside of me–the girl who used his name to learn how to properly pronounce the letter ‘t’, ‘ch’ and ‘l’, who doggedly named him any time the kids around her talked about comics–was dancing with joy. If Barry Allen is my favorite guy in DC, T’Challa is my favorite guy in Marvel and I needed his first foray into the live action universe to be nailed.

And he was, oh my goodness he was.

Now at SDCC they unveiled a whole LOT of info about the movie (including the cast!). So expect me to go into overdrive mode when filming begins in January 2017 (which…hey where’s it being filmed…) so let’s break down what we know now ok?Read More »
