Marvel Studios Chadwick Boseman as Black Panther

One thing I forgot to mention in my review of Marvel’ Black Panther – something I regret not putting in – is the fact that the music is an excellent complement to the superhero film. Produced by Kendrick Lamar, the soundtrack is easily one of the most anticipated Marvel soundtracks to date. Probably because it’s one of the few that is worthwhile.

So if you want to take a listen, then I suggest you check out the Spotify embed here below for clips; the full soundtrack is streaming through the Spotify app.

Never has a superhero film done more for culture, identity, and representation than Black Panther. Director Ryan Coogler’s standout Marvel film forgoes the traditional superhero blockbuster and gives us a redefined blockbuster that subverts all preconceived notions of what a superhero film should be. By emphasizing on the often overlooked themes like culture, identity, and representation, the film finally gives a loud voice to those who would otherwise be supporting or background characters. What we get is an impressive superhero film that is unique and special.

Black Panther is by far the most political Marvel film to date, and by exploring those aforementioned themes it allows it to stand on its own. By drawing its inspiration from films like James Bond and shows like Game of Thrones, this is a superhero film unlike any other that will leave audiences speechless. Check out the full review below.

How Marvel Studios’ ‘Black Panther’ Takes A Step Forward For Representation

Black Panther

In Marvel Studios’ decade-long run, 17 successful blockbusters have featured a white character as the lead. However, Captain America: Civil War was the first small baby step in the right direction when it introduced Black Panther into the Marvel Cinematic Universe. The events of that film would lead up to the Wakandian king’s standalone film, Black Panther.

But Black Panther is so much more than the title character’s first standalone film. It represents what a superhero means to a person of color. Representation matters, and as we move towards a brighter future, Marvel Studios will have more and more films that are a reflection of today’s society. That’s why Black Panther is such an important film.

We had the chance to sit down with the cast and creators Chadwick Boseman (T’Challa), Lupita Nyong’o (Nakia), Michael B. Jordan (“Erik Killmonger), Danai Gurira (Okoye), Angela Bassett (Ramonda), Forest Whitaker (Zuri), Andy Serkis (Ulysses Klaue), Martin Freeman (Everett K Ross), Daniel Kaluuya (W’Kabi), Winston Duke (M’Baku), Letitia Wright (Shuri), director Ryan Coogler and producer Kevin Feige to talk about the importance of Black Panther, what making this MCU installment meant to them, and what they hope the film accomplishes. Check out what they had to say here below.

Black Panther director Ryan Coogler

Marvel Studios’ Black Panther is a revolutionary installment the MCU, their long-running superhero franchise. The title character, who symbolized the real-life Black Panther movement in America during the 1960s, has become an iconic figure in the African-American community. And after 50-plus years of spending time building its fanbase in comic books, T’Challa returns to the Marvel Cinematic Universe with his very own film. But the titular film isn’t your traditional superhero offering. It forgoes all those generic tropes of saving the world and focuses on real-world themes like culture, politics, identity, and representation.

Geeks Of Doom had a chance to sit down with their fellow journalists to talk to the cast, Chadwick Boseman (T’Challa), Lupita Nyong’o (Nakia), Michael B. Jordan (Erik Killmonger), Danai Gurira (Okoye), Angela Bassett (Ramonda), Forest Whitaker (Zuri), Andy Serkis (Ulysses Klaue), Martin Freeman (Everett K Ross), Daniel Kaluuya (W’Kabi), Winston Duke (M’Baku), and Letitia Wright (Shuri). Director Ryan Coogler and producer Kevin Feige were also present to talk about the upcoming film, how its important to have a character like Black Panther, the timeliness and relevancy, and more.

Marvel Studios' Black Panther

It’s widely known that the Marvel Studios’ franchises aren’t just tied to one particular genre. Each franchise has a sub-genre that allows it to stand out from other superhero films. For instance, Captain America started out as a wartime period piece and then evolved into a political thriller. Guardians of the Galaxy is a space opera. Iron Man has that buddy cop feel to it. Ant-Man began has a heist film but will become something else in the sequel. And Spider-Man is a coming of age film that sees its titular character go through high school angst.

With Black Panther just a few weeks away from release, we are now beginning to see how director Ryan Coogler‘s film fits into the MCU and how it will distinguish itself from the other MCU films. In a newly released interview, Coogler says he was inspired by films like A Prophet and the James Bond series. Check out the quotes below.

Rian Johnson Directing Star Wars: The Last Jedi

Star Wars: The Last Jedi was a major hit over the weekend, earning over $220 million in the domestic box office. While the film is polarizing, no one can deny the profound impact that Carrie Fisher and her character of Princess Leia had on the immensely popular franchise. Having gone from princess to general, Fisher carved her own mark and defined what it means to be a badass woman. A notion that she had carried with her until her death, and one that has inspired not only her co-stars, but almost every woman on earth.

We had a chance to sit down with our fellow journalists to talk to the female cast of The Last Jedi about what it meant to them to star alongside Fisher and what they learned from her during the production of the film. Check out what they had to say here below.
