Black Panther – S03E06

Welcome back, boys and girls, to the Visually Stunning Movie Podcast. As promised for what seems like weeks now, we’re taking a look at the latest entry in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, and the first of several Marvel films of 2018,

Black Panther

Directed by Ryan Coogler, and starring Chadwick Boseman, Angela Basset, Lupita Nyong’o, Michael B. Jordan, Martin Freeman, Andy Serkis…

You get the idea.

Picking up almost immediately after the events of Captain America: Civil War, Black Panther has been hotly anticipated since it was announced.

Much has been made of this film. How does it stack up?

How do you think?

Avengers: Infinity War Super Bowl footage.

Marvel teased some more of the upcoming Avengers: Infinity War during the Super Bowl, and I just have one or two questions:

What is the runtime on this going to be: Three hours? The Russo brothers are going to have their hands full to balance the screen time for all the heroes to prevent complaints that “such-and-so was just a cameo,” and the like. That would be a shame.

Thanos looks better here than he did in the earlier trailer, but someone pointed out that may be a trick of the light, so the jury is still out on that one.

Steve Rogers’/Captain America’s/Nomad’s new Wakandan shield certainly looks cool, but its functionality will be 100% NOT what we—or he, for that matter—is used to. Will it impact his fighting style/effectiveness? We shall see.

A couple of times I thought the CGI looked a bit… wonky. I hope that’s a result of them not actually being 100% completed yet.

If Tom Holland can’t keep a secret about the movie, it’s just a reflection of the fact Spider-Man can’t keep his damned mask on. It’s Peter Parker in Spider-Man pajamas in this footage, too, lol. The mask is there for a reason, Pete!

Overall, I’ve got enough faith in Marvel, and the Russo Brothers, to be worried about this film at a level of approximately 3%. Why 3%? Because you never really know, and unlike some people, if this film manages, somehow, to fall into that 3%, I’ll be ready to talk about it honestly.

But I don’t expect that to happen.

Definitely hoping for an early screening on this one, as well.

See you in May!
