Black Panther is the 18th Marvel Studios film to be released. Now just a few months after its initial release, it is coming home on Blu-ray and digital.

Director Ryan Coogler presents audiences with a new kind of superhero film. By weaving in social issues – like culture, identity, and representation – that affect us today, he turns what would have been an ordinary comic book movie into an extraordinary crowning achievement. It’s certainly not a risky film, but one that needed to be made. For there is a superhero in everyone, and it’s high time that we get to see more representation on the big screen. Check out my review of Black Panther on 4K below.

Black Panther Dora Milaje

Black Panther is easily one of the best Marvel Studios films to come out in recent years. And I am not just saying that because it is the most recent film to be released by the studio. The way it addresses social issues, representation, identity, and feminism and still maintains its superhero feel is incredible.

Now that Marvel is turning its attention to Avengers: Infinity War, Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige is talking about Black Panther‘s success. Check out what he had to say about it, the chances for a sequel and possible spinoffs, and more below.

Fahrenheit 451

Michael B. Jordan is a bit of a hot head, but not in that kind of way. Having already played characters who could spontaneously combust or just wanted to see traditions being burned, the actor will be taking his pyromania to a more serious film.

In HBO’s Fahrenheit 451, based on the Ray Bradbury novel of the same name, Jordan plays Guy Montag, a fireman who is tasked with burning books and anything resembling a written work. But Montag is beginning to have some serious doubts about the work he is doing and questions his existence. He’ll be joined by Michael Shannon, who plays fire captain Beatty, the leader of the troop that burns the books and the buildings they are held in. A new teaser trailer for the film has been released, and can be found below.

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.

Marvel Studios' Black Panther

Black Panther
Director: Ryan Coogler
Screenwriter: Ryan Coogler, Joe Robert Cole
Cast: Chadwick Boseman, Michael B. Jordan, Lupita Nyong’o, Danai Gurira, Martin Freeman, Daniel Kaluuya, Letitia Wright, Winston Duke, Angela Bassett, Forest Whitaker, and Andy Serkis
Distributor: Walt Disney Studios
Rated PG-13 | 134 Minutes
Release Date: February 16, 2018

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.
