The teaser trailer for Black Panther has me shook, shooked, shooketh. Don’t TALK to me about ANY OTHER MARVEL MOVIES UNTIL FEBRUARY. YOU SEE HOW BLACK AND BEAUTIFUL WAKANDA IS? The costumes?? The hair??? The SFX already????
02 / 11 / 17 • I haven’t posted in while oops but second semester has started and I’m pretty hype about it!! We watched The Help in english class a few days ago and because it’s one of my favourite movies and February is Black History Month, I decided to incorporate a quote from it in this week’s spread. Also, thanks for 7000+ followers!!!!! [click for quality + quote]
Boseman will star in the Black Panther movie opening in February 2018. After that, the Black Panther will return in May 2018 for Avengers: Infinity War. The third Avengers movie has a sizable ensemble cast, but Boseman says Black Panther’s is no small role.
“It’s considerable, it’s considerable,“ Boseman tells ComicBook.com at Comic-Con International: San Diego. "He’s an important factor in Infinity War.”
With the reveal of the Black Order and the Outriders at D23 Expo, Avengers: Infinity War seems more and more to be inspired by the Marvel Comics event Infinity. Black Panther was a major player in that story and Wakanda was specifically targeted by Thanos’ forces. This all sounds like the making of a major subplot for Black Panther in Avengers: Infinity.
Of course, filming two blockbuster movies in one year is no small feat either.
"You know, the two experiences, they sort of just blend into each other because we were shooting both of them in the same city,” Boseman says. “Literally, I went from one to the other, so I didn’t really have a break between the two. So it’s almost like a shot one film. That’s what it felt like.”
In 2013, Steven Spielberg and George Lucas predicted the film industry as we know it would “implode” if/when, in the near future, too many wildly expensive blockbuster movies flopped. And if ever there were a year for an implosion on that scale to occur it would be 2018, the year when there are nearly as many major studio tentpole releases as there are weeks in the year. Well, here’s the thing …
2018 will see the release over 40 massive, tentpole movies. There are nearly 20 releases that happen exactly a week apart. This means that Marvel’s Black Panther will have only a week to make most of its money before Pacific Rim 2 steals its audience, which will give the unnamed Marvel/Fox movie a week to make its money before Wreck-It Ralph 2 comes out, which will only have a week before The Flash and/or Tomb Raider comes out, because Warner Bros. is dumb and scheduled two of their own tentpole movies for the same day. And all of those movies will be released in February and March, the two months studios usually use as a landfill to dump the movies they think suck. The year isn’t just crowded; it’s a clusterfuck, and there are going to be big casualties. There are too many massive movies and not enough people to watch them.
