black panther poster

First things first, this poster sucks ass. Marvel posters almost always suck ass though so I’m willing to give it the benefit of the doubt. So for awhile now I’ve been feeling franchise fatigue for the Marvel movies. Didn’t love Guardians 2 as much as I thought I would and thought Spidey was fun but nothing to write home about. Then this morning Marvel dropped this trailer on us.

And now a live look at me after watching it:

I honestly don’t know what it is. Maybe the hip hop mixed with a completely new cast? Was never a big fan of Black Panther in the comics (nerd alert) but I think Boseman killed it in his limited role in Civil War. Maybe my biggest takeaway is that they’re going all in on the whole “Wakanda is way more technologically advanced than even some aliens” thing from the comics. The glimpses we saw of the tech looked dope as hell and way different than the alien tech we’ve seen in Guardians or Thor. PLUS we get Michael B. Jordan AKA Apollo Creed as the villain ad you can’t tell me this fight isn’t going to be badass:

This might be the movie that actually reinvigorates the Marvel series… yes we still get Thor Ragnarok this fall which I’m cautiously optimistic about but I still think it could go the way of GOTG2 – visually cool but bland as fuck.
