Among a host of amazing things, maybe the most amazing thing about Black Panther is that it’s a superhero movie. For all the weight and expectation and political pressure and representative issues that come with being the first black superhero movie released by Marvel Studios—and the first black superhero movie released during this current golden age of superhero movies—Black Panther is, at the end of the day, just a superhero movie. Full Story

Sarah saw Black Panther last night. Her first e-mail to me after her screening was, of course, about Okoye. I’ve BEEN telling y’all about Danai Gurira’s Okoye. People are going to lose their sh-t over Okoye. They are going to be demanding a standalone Okoye film. The same can be said for Letitia Wright’s Shuri or Lupita Nyong’o’s Nakia. Full Story

The official dress code of the Black Panther premiere was royal. The carpet was purple. Attendees were told to dress in their majestic best and my GOD, did they deliver. I don’t mean to be extra here but in a year when the people most of the world recognize as Royals (yes, the British ones) will welcome their first black Princess (or Duchess, whatever) and we’ve already seen her face her share of racist bullsh-t, a red carpet like this is radical. Full Story

There was one word I kept coming back to while reading Lupita Nyong’o’s stirring feature in The Hollywood Reporter and that word was “necessary.” Her story, her words and her presence are so vital, so NECESSARY, that I think this feature should be required reading for everyone in her industry – heck, for anyone in the entire United States of America, and the world!

(Lainey: this post was supposed to go up yesterday but I had to be a dick. Black Panther tickets went on sale. The film has already set a record for advance ticket sales which is why, like an asshole, I didn’t want to post about it because I was trying to buy a block of tickets online – 10 tickets, VIP theatre, pre-selected seats all together – because we’re going as an entire team to see it! For some reason, the Cineplex site wasn’t taking my payment all day yesterday. Full Story
