    That teaser was great.

    If this is really good (and with Coogler directing and pretty much EVERY great black actor still alive cast in it, I have a feeling it will be), it could have a Wonder Woman like run, hitting the cultural zeitgeist as the first MAJOR black superhero.

    I know there was already Blade, but he was such a fringe character and most people thought he was just a vampire killer... had no clue he was a superhero.

    Man, Disney/Marvel have been hitting them out of the park with trailers lately.

    This trailer revealed too much. Especially the Michael B. Jordan suit.

    I have to be honest all the Alien stuff kind of hit me from left field even though I think it looks good.

    This movie is getting stellar reviews. Only 47 so far, but a solid 100% on Rotten Tomatoes so far. Rolling Stone even calls it a Masterpiece.

    Man, I hope this movie lives up to the hype.

    The best thing about seeing Wonder Woman was going in with ZERO expectations. DC was a mess, there had been rumors of a bumpy shoot and they didn’t even really go full mega force promoting it.

    The only non-black cast (billed) in Black Panther are Andy Serkis and Martin Freeman.


    I guess you could say they are the Tolkien Whites.

    Just effin' amazing. On ALL levels. The ONLY nitpick I found was the nittiest of picks, and that just because the friend I saw it with was too dumbfounded at my NOT having any complaints.

    Simple Marvelous.
