The Evolution of Black Panther

One of the reasons why Captain America: Civil War was such a fantastic film was because it brought Black Panther into the mix. This was a character that I had no idea about and when I discovered him in this movie I was totally blown away. He completely stole the show away from Captain America and Iron Man as the new coolest superhero of the bunch and since then he’s only gotten cooler! And now with Infinity War coming out soon Black Panther’s involvement in this franchise is only going to grow larger and so in anticipation for this incredible movie coming out in less than a week! it’s time to look at his evolution so far. Enjoy!

Captain America: Civil War (2016)

When T’Challa first came into Civil War he was just a young Wakandan prince with a father who had years, maybe even decades, of life and leadership still in him. He was learning the ways of diplomacy and seeing the workings of the world outside of the peaceful borders surrounding Wakanda…and then his father was murdered. That’s when the world turned upside down for T’Challa.

He utterly loved his father. To lose someone in the way that he did was just a devastating turn for him and he began plotting his revenge. For the rest of the movie his only mission was to avenge his father’s death by killing Bucky, the man who had been framed for the terrible act but this is where the character of T’Challa shines the brightest in this movie. When he discovered that it was actually Zemo who killed his father he had a choice. He could’ve avenged his father by killing Zemo but then he realized he wouldn’t have been any better than Zemo in that situation.

Zemo was bent on revenge, so focused in his quest for vengeance that he hadn’t even cared about the type of murderous monster he had become. T’Challa, however, did care. He didn’t want to fall down the same rage filled path Zemo had taken because he was better than that. T’Challa has a heart as strong and perfect as vibranium and he wasn’t going to let hate taint that.

He had such a change of heart that he volunteered for Bucky to take refuge in Wakanda where his scientists and doctors could help the former Hydra assassin. He didn’t have to do that but that’s how good of a person he is. It’s a perfect development for his character that leads into his next movie, Black Panther in such an impeccable way as the strength of his character and his beliefs is tested in ways he never could’ve imagined.

This Is Definitely the Best Poster for ‘Solo: A Star Wars Story’ So Far

The marketing for Solo: A Star Wars Story has officially begun to ramp up and a few days ago they brought out a new poster for the film which actually is the greatest poster they’ve made so far. Here it is.

So this is the international poster for the movie and I love the Rogue One vibe it’s giving as it’s stacking all of the characters in a hierarchy type of fashion and it’s kind of really cool. I also like the sunrise color scheme. It hints that the dawn of a new big shot in town is coming and that will obviously be Han Solo. Awesome! I also love seeing all of the characters as well. It’s obvious that the four most important characters will be Han, Qi’Ra, Chewbacca, and Lando, which is super exciting. I have to admit, this poster is getting me a little pumped for this movie.

I’ve also just recently gotten the main gist of the movie which is this; Tobias Beckett (Woody Harrelson) is putting together a sort of Avengers of smugglers for a big-shot gangster, Dryden Vos (Paul Bettany) to perform a heist job that’ll obviously pay them a lot of money. That sounds ridiculously awesome because there’s never been a story like that in Star Wars before. Maybe this movie is going to be really good after all because that sounds like an awesome plot. And I’m sure this movie will be full of shocking-but-not-that-shocking betrayals that’ll reveal how Han truly became his namesake; Han Solo.

All in all, I’m actually starting to get excited for this movie. I thank you for reading and I hope you have a beautiful day. May the Force be with you.
