When I was three, my big brother Sam smacked me on the head with a mini model car. He was five and frustrated that I kept stealing his toys. The incident left a small but permanent scar in the middle of my forehead. Throughout my childhood and into my early adulthood, I was ashamed of my scar. I hid my forehead under blunt bangs for years. Full Story

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

It has arrived. Officially. Black Panther premiered last night and all my dreams for what I hoped the premiere of Black Panther would look like came true. LOOK AT ALL OF THIS BLACK EXCELLENCE. I actually don’t think I ever dreamed this big – that a film about an African nation, with an all-black cast and helmed by a black director would get this much of a celebration. Full Story

(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!

Welcome to Wakanda

The second trailer for Black Panther has arrived, to be attached to Thor: Ragnarok, and it gives us a better look at the world of Wakanda, which looks AMAZING. The combo of traditional African art and fashion with the high-tech comic book wizardry of Wakanda is super f*cking cool, and the costumes, in particular, are incredible. Full Story

Most people who came out of Captain America: Civil War wanted more Black Panther. As Sarah keeps repeating, this is what we all want next. And soon. But while there’s a new Thor in production (no one is more excited about the third Thor movie than Tom Hiddleston), the standalone Black Panther doesn’t come out until 2018. Full Story
