Making Black Panther: Wakanda Forever couldn’t have been easy. Ryan Coogler and Chadwick Boseman were well into plotting and scripting this sequel when Boseman passed, after keeping his illness a secret from even his close collaborators. But I’m glad that Coogler, Marvel and the whole cast decided to push through and make this movie the way they did. Wakanda Forever is a big, rich and emotional movie, full of great performances and a really outstanding superhero story.
Movie Rating: 9/10 – Great
I very much enjoyed Wakanda Forever. I didn’t mind the long runtime. I loved the introduction of Namor, even though I’ve never been a fan of the character. I loved the story of the new Black Panther, even though I didn’t think I would. And I think everyone involved truly brought their A games to honor Boseman. It made for an exciting watch. I was already a big fan of the first Black Panther movie, and I think I liked this sequel even more. The same confidence was at play in the filmmaking, and I just think Namor and the Talokans were a wonderful antagonist. Good time all around!

The Marvel movie machine continues to roll along, much to all our enjoyment. Black Panther: Wakanda Forever is due out in a couple of weeks, so we’ve got the first trailer for the next movie after that, Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania. I love all of these things, and I love this trailer.
Looks great! We got Ant-Man, we got the Wasp, it definitely looks like Cassie Lang is going to suit up in this one. And Jonathan Majors as Kang is really cool. I look forward to him being a huge menace. If I’m being entirely honest, I’m not yet sold on the Quantum Realm being so identical to the worlds of the Guardians of the Galaxy, but we’ll see how that turn sout.
Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania arrives in theaters on Feb. 17, which is closer than you think.
I have a new favorite! She-Hulk: Attorney at Law has been getting a lot of flack for reasons that make no sense to me. This show was everything it said it would be and more, and everything I wanted it to be. Funny, charming, full of personality and perfectly built around a very fun main character. I want to see Tatiana Maslany and Jennifer Walters everywhere now.
TV Show Rating: 10/10 – Fantastic
Once upon a time, I didn’t think She-Hulk would work in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. I didn’t think the MCU Hulk could translate into a She-Hulk movie. Thankfully, the world changed and the Disney+ TV shows changed everything. The creative team behind She-Hulk: Attorney at Law used the TV format to perfection to bring this character and her unique perspective to life. I want production to start immediately on season 2!

This was a surprise, and a welcome one! A new, full trailer for Black Panther: Wakanda Forever arrived on our internet today and it’s a pretty solid trailer. Not as magical as that music-heavy first trailer, but still pretty solid in terms of showing off the show.
I think Atlantis vs. Wakanda is a great premise/story for the sequel. It keeps things in the realm of kings and kingdoms, and is a pretty big story in its own right. We get confirmation of Ironheart suiting up in the movie — which was probably a given — and many more guesses can be made at the identity of the new, female Black Panther. My money is on Shuri…but it’s also on Shuri starting out in the role, but Nakia getting it by the end. But we’ll see. I have no real clue. Movie looks great!
Black Panther: Wakanda Forever arrives in theaters a month from now on Nov. 11.
For once, I have more than just two or so comics to read and review this week! And yet I’m still not branching out as much as I’d like to non-superhero stuff. I haven’t even read 8 Billion Genies yet! That’s supposed to be very good. At least Ant-Man and Thunderbolts are also very good, as is the first issue of Tim Drake: Robin.
Comic Book of the Week goes to Mighty Morphin Power Rangers #100 for a pretty excellent, perfectly paced and powered, big anniversary issue.
Meanwhile, I’m just about ready to start hunting in earnest for an artist for my next comic book project, Cover Bard. So if you are a comic book artist looking for work or you know one who is, drop me a line and we might be in business!
Comic Reviews: Ant-Man #3, Mighty Morphin Power Rangers #100, Thunderbolts #2, Tim Drake: Robin #1 and X-Men #15.Read the rest of this entry
