Well, yeah, it is kinda safe option. But it is also powerful storytelling tool, especially if you want to contrast and compare the hero and villain. They do that for a reason. Abomination is Hulk without any morality, just destroying stuff for fun, ie how Thunderbolt Ross and most of the world sees him, and by beating him he proves not to be this. Same for Tony Stark; Warmonger is evil capitalist who exploits people and gets rich on the cost of human life- the thing the reporter accused Tony being at the start of the movie and what Tony struggles with in the movie.

Is it overused? Yeah, definitely. But it also works if done right. And since Killmonger's goal seems to be "Wakanda is not working, time for new ruler and new rules" and T'Challa struggling with being a good king and a good man, making villain a Black Panther-like costume is just visual continuation of that theme.

The other thing to remember is that in comics lore, "Black Panther" is not a superhero name, but a title and duty of the rightful King of Wakanda. If Killmonger is making a grab for the throne, then it is only fitting he is claiming to be the rightful Black Panther as well. In that case, an "evil Black Panther" makes sense.

I'm sure there have been some morally questionable Black Panthers, consider Wakanda's long history.

I'll hug him, and pet him, and squeeze him, and call him George!


Marvel really needs to stop doing the mirror match fights.

I hope Wesley Snipes has a cameo or something. Back in the 90s He was supposed to do a Black Panther movie but the deal fell through and he did Blade.


that awful music!

I don't like that kind of music. I love the trailer. And I LOVE that Bilbo and Gollum are only white guys in the movie, and one is a bad guy.

Removed some posts. There is no reason to bring up hypotheticals or make guesses about what racists might say or how long it will take them to say it.


The puns for this movie are showing.

The pun heard around the internets, because it's just that good at being that bad. ;)


Since 'Tolkien' isn't spelt or pronounced enough like 'token' it took me a while to get it.

I have to say Bravo Marvel for pulling off non-Euro-centric futurism.

Pretty much. With no Blade the Superhero movie genre would have died out.

I'll be honest, I wasn't really impressed with Blade, but that may have had more to do with the fact I was burning out on the whole 'vampire-stuff is KEWL' phase than anything else.

...no, I know Blade's history, it just felt kind of 'flat' and that wasn't the actor's fault.


Eh. Blade is either a character you enjoy tremendously (I think) or you don't.

Me, I liked the movies, I enjoyed Wesley Snipes' Blade, but it's not quite enough to make me enjoy the character compared to the comic book versions.

The only other version I've Blade I've seen was when he showed up in Spiderman the Animated Series.


That's the one I'm talking about Rysky. Well that and the anime one...

Snipes chose to do Blade Trinity, instead of Black Panther. They other two Blade movies were already done at that point.


Blade 1 and 2 where really good. (The beginning scene for the first blade I could just watch over and over for some reason in my head he kills like 30 vampires but re watching it I think its like 3-6)

blade 3 was Ryan Reynolds insulting vampires for 15 minutes and poorly choreographed fight scenes.

[tangent] I loved Blade 1. The villain vampires (Deacon, Mercury, Quinn) were all fun characters and / or had interesting visuals (I just recently rewatched it and was surprised that it was Donal Logue playing Quinn), which made it more fun when the hero took them out. Contrast with the potentially interesting vampire 'best of the best' elite hit squad introduced in the next movie, and then killed off 25 seconds later...

About the only cool thing I remember from Blade 3 was an interview where Jessica Biel told the stunt crew that she actually knew how to use a bow, and when they had the point-of-view shot where the arrow seems to be coming right at the camera, they put a barrier between her and the camera, with a tiny hole for the lens, and just told her to aim for the hole, 'she'd never hit it, from that far away.'

She proved them wrong, and destroyed a 35,000 dollar camera.

(And probably needed to buy the camera guy some new pants!) [/tangent]

Anywho, I'm glad we've got Boseman for the Black Panther. Wesley Snipes has just a tad more swagger than I want for the King of Wakanda.

I want the Black Panther to be someone who doesn't always look as dangerous as he is, with a sort of human layer over the scary panther dude underneath. I haven't seen Snipes in a lot (Demolition Man, the Blade movies), but he seems more intense and 'on' 24/7. All scary cat, no friendly façade over it.


Yeah his scary is always switched on.

Edit: He's getting a little old too sadly.

Blew the prime of his action career sitting in the pokey for not paying taxes. Now hes stuck with Van Damme style straight to On Demand crap unfortunately.


Sad but true.

Given the behind the scene stuff I heard about Blade 3, we should all feel really really lucky Wesley Snipes never played Black Panther.


3 people marked this as a favorite.

I feel lucky. I think Boseman is a better BP than some other actors.


2 people marked this as a favorite.

Yeah I heard about that too. I think he was just in a super bad part of his life.

Or he is just not that nice a person.

A dick going through a rough patch....with no idea it was about to get a whole lot rougher.


I'm not saying he seems like a great person but I can see the course. Already kind of rough (I mean action star and you know intimidating fellow) Hits some hard times and amplifies how bad the situation already is.

Something bad happens and you can react in a constructive way or a destructive way and it all depends on your outlook. A-holes tend to make things worse. I don't think hes a complete a-hole, but whatever was going on at the time made him seem like one.

I guess that could apply to everyone all the time. I guess I'll just go with benefit of the doubt for most people most of the time.

Wow I'm way off topic

So how about the panther suit? flippin sweet right?

What's funny is Snipes got into action because he found out how much Van Damme was making per movie. "Hold up...I've been doing Martial Arts my whole life....he makes how much??? To hell with winning an Oscar!"
