Every actor in Black Panther (except for maybe living legends Angela Bassett and Forest Whitaker) can look at their careers in two parts: BBP and ABP, as in Before Black Panther and After Black Panther.  Sure, Chadwick Boseman, Lupita Nyong’o, Danai Gurira, Daniel Kaluuya and my man Michael B. Full Story

If by the end of this post, you feel the need to come in with some real talk … don’t. Do not take away my joy. Don’t take away your own joy. Let us all live in possibility for a while because, sure, this may be too good to be true, but it’s a lot better than believing that Robsten and Virtue Moir are secretly married and raising babies. 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

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

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!
