Hero Blend #92: Our Hopes For The Future Of Black Panther

As the kick-off film of the Marvel Cinematic Universe’s Phase Three, Captain America: Civil War helped get us excited for all of the franchise’s films that are set to come out in the next four years – but Black Panther has certainly piqued our interest more than most. Chadwick Boseman delivers a commanding and fantastic performance in his first time out as T’Challa, the lead warrior and king of Wakanda, and we can’t wait to see what else he does with the role.

Of course, as exciting as it will be to see more of Chadwick Boseman as T’Challa, we’re also beside ourselves knowing that he will very likely be joined in the movie by Lupita Nyong’o and Michael B. Jordan – with writer/director Ryan Coogler running the show. Still, with a character as new to the silver screen as Black Panther is, there are some big questions about what our expectations should be – and that’s exactly what we talk about in this week’s episode of Hero Blend.

Joining me as my co-host on the latest installment of our comic book-centered series is Cinema Blend’s own Sean O’Connell, who is as excited about Black Panther as me, but for some very different reasons. Enjoy the show!
