BLACK PANTHER review

Wakanda Forever!

Back in 2016, we were given our first glimpse of the Wakandan hero, Black Panther (Chadwick Boseman).  In “Captain America: Civil War”, King T’Chaka (John Kani)  is assassinated and we see his son, T’Challa, don the all-black Black Panther suit to establish revenge.  In Ryan Coogler’s “Black Panther”, the film opens in 1992 Los Angeles as a Wakandan spy is exposed as committing treason, causing King T’Chaka to act swiftly and justly.  Fast forward to the present.  T’Challa is headed home to his beautiful (and hidden) homeland of Wakanda, to Continue reading

We met Nick Fury all the way back in Iron Man (2008), Agent Peggy Carter was introduced with Captain America and now we get a look at two new heroes in the new film Captain America: Civil War.

Civil War picks up where Age of Ultron left off with Captain America (Chris Evans) and Black Widow (Scarlett Johansson)leading the new group of Avengers:  Falcon (Anthony Mackie) & Scarlett Witch (Elizabeth Olsen) tracking down Crossbones (Frank Grillo) to prevent HYDRA from obtaining a biological weapon. The fight takes place in the streets of South Africa and there are numerous casualties including a group of students from Wakanda as Cap and his crew defeat Crossbones securing the chemical.

The governments of the world are demanding accountability by the Avengers after the battles in New York (Avengers), Washington DC (Captain America Winter Soldier), Sokovia (Avengers Age of Ultron) and now Africa. Secretary of State Ross (William Hurt) tells the Avengers they have to agree to supervision by the United Nations to continue policing the planet.  This is accepted by Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.) and the military minded Rhodey aka War Machine (Don Cheadle), but Cap and Falcon think that they still know what is best for the heroes.
