An All-Female "Black Panther" Movie? Ryan Coogler's Down For It.

16 May 2018

You can be the judge yourself as "Black Panther" is available now on Blu-ray and digital.

"Black Panther" dominated the box office after its February release and has earned over $696 million domestically. Mostly, the trailer points out that Black Panther has way more moral nuance and a love interest with way more agency than the average Marvel film, but the overused CGI and big third-act action battle keep it firmly in Marvel's wheelhouse.

Black Panther is officially out on DVD and Blu-Ray, which gives the folks over at Honest Trailers that much more reason to finally tear into the hugely successful Marvel film. That's one of my favorite parts of the movie when I watched it, and I didn't expect that.

As usual, the Honest Trailer pokes fun at some aspects of the movie, such as how vibranium is used as a catch-all for whatever the plot demands and how the thing that sets T'Challa apart from other Marvel heroes most is that he doesn't crack jokes. Among those to fall were Spider-Man, Doctor Strange and every member of the Guardians (save Rocket), while Black Panther himself, King T'Challa, also succumbed to the effects of Thanos' mass genocide. T'Challa eventually is given an updated, more powerful suit, made by his sister, Shuri, one of the leading scientists of Wakanda.

Black Panther has become a cultural force, with the "Wakanda forever" salute being recognized as a symbol of cultural pride in the African-American community. Unbeknownst to them, outside threats have laid plans to infiltrate the isolated country, putting the entire Wakandan society into jeopardy.

"Black Panther" director Ryan Coogler thinks it would be "amazing" to do a spinoff film featuring the badass women of Wakanda. "That would be unbelievable if the opportunity came up", he said.

"That part of the movie you feel like you're watching something fresh and new". As the narrator puts it, "I thought you had to be a smartass to save the world?"
