Black Panther's Secret Ingredient? 6 Women You'd Want in Your Squad

Author Jacqueline Coley is a correspondent for Rotten Tomatoes. When Ryan Coogler was tapped to write and direct Black Panther, he enlisted an army of talented women to help him bring Marvel's first Black superhero to the big screen. Both in front of and behind the camera, women help build the framework for the most talked about film of 2018. Onscreen, Danai Gurira, Lupita Nyong'o, Angela Bassett, and scene-stealing newcomer Letitia Wright accompany King T'Challa (Chadwick Boseman) as he battles to protect Wakanda from Black Panther's militant villain Erik Killmonger (Michael B. Jordan). Behind the camera, Rachel Morrison, Ruth Carter, and Hannah Bealcher brought prestige and innovation to the cinematography, costuming, and production design, respectively.

The Avengers Shatters All Expectations: Journey to Infinity War Part 6

Our journey to Infinity War continues by looking back at Marvel's The Avengers, which is perhaps the most important superhero movie in the history of the genre. And quite possibly the greatest, if you're like me and like to think of The Dark Knight as an action/thriller that happens to have a guy in a costume in it some of the time. In any case, so far, we've looked at all of Marvel's individual Phase 1 movies that got us to this point. Iron Man, The Incredible Hulk, Iron Man 2, Thor and Captain America: The First Avenger were leading us here. Everyone knew fairly quickly that they were taking us to an Avengers movie, but nothing like this had ever been done before. Nobody really knew if this could work. It not only works, it's still the gold standard for team-up movies and hasn't lost a step nearly

Every Marvel After-Credits Scene Explained

By now you should know, if you go see a Marvel Studios movie, stay through the credits. Since 2008’s Iron Man, Marvel Studios has rewarded viewers who stick around through the entirety of the credits with an extra scene. Sometimes this scene comes all the way at the end of the credits, sometimes mid-way through, and sometimes both. Some of these scenes have big reveals or teases for future movies, and some are simply codas for the film that came before. But they’re all interesting in their own way—although sometimes you might need a little explanation …

10 Crazy Similarities Between Black Panther And Iron Man

Black Panther and Iron Man are two of the most popular superheroes in the Marvel universe – in fact, they’re two of the most popular heroes in comic books and fiction in general. The two men (who are otherwise known as T’Challa and Tony Stark) are genuinely iconic characters who, in the last few years, have both transcended their comic book roots to become two of Hollywood’s most recognisable stars as part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe (thanks to Chadwick Boseman and Robert Downey Jr. respectively). On the surface, the two men seem like very different people from very different backgrounds – but they’ve actually got a lot more in common than you might think. In this video, we’re going to look deeper into that very notion. The things the two characters have in common are; they were both created by some of Marvel’s biggest creator figures back in the 1960s,

Kevin Feige Addresses All-Female McU Team-Up Movie

Considering how many great female characters there are in the McU, it’s a bit silly that we’ll have had to wait eleven years for a female-led Marvel Studios movie. Fortunately, though, it looks like Brie Larson’s Captain Marvel is set to join the pantheon currently occupied by iconic heroines like Scarlett Johansson’s Black Widow, Zoe Saldana’s Gamora and Tessa Thompson’s Valkryie.

In fact, the latter was so well received in last year’s Thor: Ragnarok that she and several other notable McU actresses approached Marvel Studios head honcho Kevin Feige with a plan for an all-female Marvel movie team-up. Now, in an interview with Vulture, Feige explained his perspective on the idea, saying:

“It is all about figuring out when and how. But by the way, many of them have already filmed additional scenes in upcoming movies, so some of that is gonna come sooner rather than later.

Which Marvel Film Has Made the Most Money? Here's the Whole List

Marvel Comics is one of the biggest production companies in the film industry at the moment, and with its new release of Black Panther, it is only going to continue to make more money - and rightfully so. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Disney and Marvel Studios' Black Panther is already making history at the Us box office - and will most likely stay that way - with an estimated $200 million in earnings for its four-day debut this President's Day weekend. The reason it could hit the $200 million mark in its opening weekend is based on its early Friday returns and the Thursday evening previews, which came in at $25.5 million, THR reported. That's insane! As of now, The Avengers has had the best opening weekend for a Marvel film, coming in at $207.4 million, and let's be honest: with so much hype and the acting, and action, to back it up,

Black Panther Slips in a Very Sneaky Nod to a Character From the Comics

Warning: Big ol' spoilers for the end of Black Panther below! When it comes to Marvel's postcredits scenes, it can be very hit or miss. For every great, earth-shattering revelation - like Nick Fury popping up at the end of Iron Man to discuss the "Avengers Initiative" with Tony Stark - there are banal, but usually somewhat entertaining, moments (Doctor Strange, I'm looking at you). Fortunately the studio's latest, Black Panther, delivers. There are two postcredits scenes in Black Panther, and the second is the one you really want to pay attention to. It not only features Bucky Barnes (Sebastian Stan) with a beard (more of that, please), but also contains a sneaky reference to one of the characters from Marvel's Black Panther comics.

Jon Favreau’s Solo: A Star Wars Story Role Revealed

Jon Favreau likes his bread buttered on both sides. He manages to juggle being a sought after character actor, most famously playing Tony Stark’s bodyguard buddy Happy Hogan, and being a top-flight director. He introduced us to the McU in 2008’s Iron Man and recently had a critical and financial smash hit with the live-action The Jungle Book, which he’s soon to follow up with an all-star remake of The Lion King (for a very long time I thought he was also President Obama’s speechwriter, but it turns out that was another Jon Favreau).

In front of the cameras, though, his next appearance is to come in a galaxy far, far away in Solo: A Star Wars Story. Earlier in the week, director Ron Howard revealed on Twitter that Favreau would be voicing “a very cool and important alien character,” immediately sparking a ton of speculation as

The Marvel Olympics: ‘Black Panther’ wins gold as the most critically acclaimed McU movie by far – see how all 18 compare

The Marvel Olympics: ‘Black Panther’ wins gold as the most critically acclaimed McU movie by far – see how all 18 compare
Black Panther” opened on Friday, February 16, as the 18th movie in the Marvel Cinematic Universe since the interconnected superhero franchise began with “Iron Man” 10 years ago in 2008 — that averages out to 1.8 Marvel blockbusters every single year. Critics should be sick of it by now, shouldn’t they? Perhaps they are, which makes it even more impressive that this 18th entry in the McU canon has scored 87 on MetaCritic and 98% freshness on Rotten Tomatoes. That makes it the most acclaimed Marvel movie yet. So if Marvel were the Olympics — and goodness knows they have enough heroes to populate an Olympic team — it just captured the gold.

Black Panther” is co-written and directed by Ryan Coogler, who seems to be making a habit of resuscitating long-running franchises. In 2015 he brought Sylvester Stallone‘s Rocky Balboa back to the Oscars with his film “Creed.” This film follows the title character (Chadwick Boseman), a

‘Black Panther’: Marvel Cinematic Universe breakthrough at Oscars?

After breaking numerous box office records since its debut, triumphing at the Oscars is the only industry achievement that Marvel Studios cannot crack. But that could all change in one year’s time. The studio’s new release, “Black Panther,” is the first Oscar contender of 2018.

Black Panther” marks the first time a black superhero has lead a Marvel Cinematic Universe film. Chadwick Boseman brilliantly captures T’Challa, the newly minted king of the fictional African nation of Wakanda. Could Boseman strike a chord with the academy after failing to register for his acclaimed portrayal of James Brown in “Get on Up?”

Acting nominations have been hard to come by for superhero movies. Heath Ledger is the only person to reap a nomination (and win) for his turn as the Joker in “The Dark Knight.” But the celebrated cast of “Black Panther” should help the film be taken seriously with Oscar voters.

Kevin Feige Discusses Bringing Black Panther To The Big Screen and Hopes Ryan Coogler Comes Back For the Sequel

Black Panther has officially been released in theaters and if you haven't seen it yet, make sure to check it out sometime this weekend. In a recent interview with Variety, Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige talks about bringing Black Panther to the big screen.

One of the first questions that Feige was asked in the interview is why it took so long to get Black Panther made and he says:

"I don’t know. This is the 10-year anniversary of Marvel Studios, starting with “Iron Man.” I’ll speak starting in 2008. For us, we were building the Avengers. That took up the first five years. And as audiences continued to come, we got to tell more of these stories and we got to a point where we were developing 'Captain America: Civil War.' We had an opportunity to introduce a character that had no allegiance to either Iron

Sony Made a Big Mistake Passing on Black Panther and Iron Man Rights

A new report reveals that Sony could have bought most of Marvel's major characters for a mere $25 million in 1998. However, the studio only had eyes for Spider-Man and declined the offer. While the deal looks like a steal now, Marvel didn't really have a whole lot to show for themselves on the big screen in the late 1990s and Sony really only wanted Spider-Man, which at the time seems wise. That deal must still echo around the halls now, after Marvel has become the cinematic juggernaut that it is today.

During the latter half of the 1990s, Marvel was trying to find homes for Iron Man, Doctor Strange, Thor, Black Panther, and more. So, when Sony President Yair Landau came asking about Spider-Man, Marvel thought that all of the characters under the same roof would be a lot better for the properties. Marvel's head Ike Perlmutter decided to counter-offer
