Black Panther teaser trailer

I am here for this, as the kids say.

I’ve read a bunch of the Christopher Priest run of Black Panther and very much enjoyed it; have yet to really dive into Ta-Nehisi Coates’s more recent stories, but they’re high on my Marvel Unlimited list. Chadwick Boseman was really great in Captain America: Civil War, and I think this will be a fantastic dive into the character for those who aren’t familiar with him—which is probably a lot of people. Plus, such a fantastic cast: Michael B. Jordan, Lupita Nyong’o, Angela Bassett, Forest Whitaker, Sterling K. Brown, and so many more. Looking forward to this immensely.

Moreover, with the recent success of Wonder Woman, here’s hoping that Black Panther will confirm to studios that big blockbusters featuring women and people of color are worth making, in the only language that those big businesses seem to understand: profit.
