The Black Panther teaser trailer.

Well, this looks promising.

Hopefully, they won’t feel a need for any kind of real origin story in Black Panther.  I mean, we all saw Civil War, right? Further exposition would be, methinks, largely unnecessary.  Particularly since that was the movie that sold many of us on a Black Panther movie in the first place.

Hollywood does shocking cast picks in Black Panther movie!

…They’re still casting black people* for all the major roles.  Can Hollywood stand the strain?  The sheer insanity?

Marvel has added a new villain to the mix in director Ryan Coogler‘s upcoming film Black Panther. Person of Interest actor Winston Duke will be taking on the role of Man-Ape. That means there are three villains in the film so far. The other two are Michael B. Jordan as Erik Killmonger and Andy Serkis as Ulysses Klaw. Duke also joins Chadwick Boseman as Black Panther, Danai Gurira, and Lupita Nyong’o.

Yeah, I’m being sarcastic.  But less than I’d like. Even for a, you know, African-themed superhero story it’s still mildly noteworthy that they’re going to cast accordingly…

*And Andy Serkis.  Soooooo… I guess we now know which character’s going to be mostly motion-capture?
