Ryan Coogler screens Black Panther sizzle reel, footage reportedly awesome

04.21.2017

So a sizzle reel for Ryan Coogler's BLACK PANTHER was screened by Marvel at a special open house at the company’s Los Angeles offices recently. And apparently the footage was pretty badass (but is that any surprise?) Scenes that were described include:

- Chadwick Boseman kicking ass and taking names as T’Challa, the eponymous Black Panther.

- Lupita Nyong’o as Nakia (a member of Dora Milaje, the king’s female bodyguards) beating the crap out of a large group of assailants single-handedly in the jungle.

- Martin Freeman (as Everett Ross) and Andy Serkis (as Ulysses Klaue) talking shit to each other, right before a fight with Black Panther and crew in tow (“Well, you brought quite the entourage, do you have a mixtape coming out?” “Oh yeah, I’ll actually send you link.”)

Missing in action, however, is Michael B. Jordan as one of the villains of the film, Erik Killmonger (with a name like that, is anyone surprised he'd turn out bad?) Though artwork during the sizzle reel showed Jordan sporting some luscious locks of hair, befitting the comic character he's portraying. 

When the footage was done, this is what Coogler had to say:

I’m super excited about an African king who is also strong enough, fast enough, smart enough to do some of the things that T’Challa is going to do in this film.

To which Jordan added:

The story is just going to be very honest and gritty...I think it’s a lot of the right ingredients that we have to make something really special.

So hype!

Meanwhile, BLACK PANTHER will kick all the asses in theaters Feb. 16th, 2018.

Extra Tidbit: Too bad Storm and Black Panther won't be able to get it on in the films. Shame.

Honestly of the new slate of Marvel characters, this is the one I'm looking forward to the most. BP is fucking awesome. Wakanda is rich in stories and history. It will hopefully be unlike anything we've ever seen from Marvel.

Wow racist post of the day award. Do you say the same thing when a movie is all or mostly white cast? Do you say the same thing when you watch an Asian made film about Asians? What exactly is "too black".

Or it's just a joke, guys...
A bad one if you don't like it! I could still be wrong, but it might be !
I don't see you being so reactive when it's (possible) homophobic insults...

lol, guys, I dont think you understand what he meant....what he meant was that he hopes its not too black as in theirs only a bunch of black people all around jumping and swinging around....I think he means that its not too black, and that theirs some white people in it to be the light at the end of the long black tunnel

With Fox and Marvel both having Quicksilver, I wonder if it IS possible to get Storm to appear?. I mean, it is unlikely, but we did get Spider-man...Storm could be an "Enhanced" being.

The contract issue has nothing to do with using specific words. Mutant vs enhanced. That was strictly a Wanda and Maximov issue.

Unlike key X-Men personnel, like Wolverine or Cyclops, Quicksilver and Wanda are also deeply ingrained in Avengers canon – meaning that both 20th Century Fox and Marvel Studios have legitimate right to use the characters in their respective movie universes. As a result, certain elements of Quicksilver and Scarlet Witch belong to individual studios – Marvel and

So seeing as Storm has been an Avenger in the past. She hasn't been a founding member or a RELEVANT member of the Avengers. She is an Xmen. So she will never EVER be in the Avengers even if you pretend shes not a mutant and just an enhanced. They wouldn't be able to have a black woman and call her storm in the movies.
