Twitter Explodes Over “Black Panther” Trailer: The Super Hero We Need



by G. Brown

Marvel Entertainment knows two things-how to beat the Monday blues & how to beat the Monday blues by hyping your next big movie franchise.

On Monday, as most people settled in for the ‘back to work’ blahs, Marvel with no fanfare, no pre-release hype, no advance …just BOOM! Here’s a trailer for the upcoming  “Black Panther” movie.

Look now…talk later…

As soon as Marvel dropped the trailer, Twitter exploded with excitement.


That trailer even has other great directors like Ava DuVernay fangirl crushing…

Why all the hype?  Did you look at the trailer? This movie is well overdue and right on time.

In the last decade since unleashing a renewed love affair between audiences and superheroes with the first “Iron Man” film, the MCU (Marvel Cinematic Universe ) has almost perfected how to take everybody’s money at the box office.   Even their rotten apples (like “The Incredible Hulk”) didn’t spoil the whole bunch and were still goldmine goodness at the box office. After 15 movies, the MCU has raked in nearly $12 billion globally.

The movie’s 2018 release couldn’t come at a better time.  Since racial divides have been widening in the last 10 months, a family friendly adventure movie is the best escape.  It’s also an opportunity to encourage celebration of Black culture.  Sure the movie takes place in the fictitious Wakanda…but if it did exist, we all know it would be Africa.  It’s the positive Black narrative that doesn’t come often in Hollywood. Instead of Black characters in chains, in the kitchen or in jail, the lead characters are leaders of a country advanced in science and technology.  Oh, and the King is a superhero!  No need for a White man or woman to save them…they’ll be the ones saving the world.

“Black Panther” stars Chadwick Boseman (Black Panther) Michael B. Jordan, Lupita Nyong’o, Forest Whitaker and Angela Bassett…and that is one stellar cast.  It’s directed by Ryan Coogler whose best known for his work on the hit film “Creed”, but shows his talent as a powerful voice of the times in his award winning “Fruitvale Station”.  Coogler’s direction will bring a cultural awareness and awe that’s honest and true to the Black experience.  That’s evident from the latest trailer drop which stirs up that ‘we shall overcome-Black Power’ vibe with the soundtrack.  It’s bold, unapologetic-ally  Black and fierce. We hear Gil Scott-Heron’s iconic spoken word poem “The Revolution Will Not Be Televised” mashed up with the hip-hop beats of Vince Staples’ “BagBak”.

“Black Panther” hits theaters nationwide in February, 2018.

    We haven’t seen a big budget black superhero movie since Blade . Definitely will buy my tickets in advance to see this movie. There are some pro black internet bloggers criticizing this movie. I don’t care, I am going to see this movie, then give you my opinion. I’m very surprised Disney decided to make this movie; I’m not complaining.

      @NBA is fixed I’m with you NBA…if I see only one movie in 2018 it will be “Black Panther”. The cast, the costumes, the cinematography all beautiful. Disney owed us for making “Lion King” all animals…just saying. LOL. Thanks for sharing your thoughts. Can’t wait to hear your thoughts after you see it. Take care NB
