Black Panther is the latest Marvel Cinematic Universe entry that looks like it’s going to blow our minds and it seems the general movie-going audience agrees as the film has set a new advanced ticket sales mark at Fandango for Marvel films.

Fandango managing editor dropped a tweet on Wednesday morning confirming the news.

Additionally, Davis added in a statement released by Fandango, “Black Panther is riding an incredible wave of momentum right now. It’s one of the biggest and most anticipated movies to ever open in the month of February, and its trailers have electrified the Internet. Tickets have been going fast ever since presales started on Fandango late Monday.”

No concrete numbers for Black Panther or previous Marvel movies were released.

While movie chains and other sites also offer advanced tickets, Fandango is the most popular, giving a good indication of where sales are heading for the film, which hits theaters on February 16.

As Deadline notes, Captain America: Civil War racked up $179 million on its opening weekend in May 2016. Advanced ticket sales don’t necessarily mean Black Panther will hit that number — the box office in February is typically below May’s — but between the buzz and its release over the extended Presidents Day weekend, Panther figures to debut to some damn good numbers.

Besides the general badassness of the film’s trailers, there’s also the news that Kendrick Lamar is producing the corresponding Black Panther: The Album, which includes his new collaboration with SZA, making this one of the more highly anticipated MCU releases in a while.

Yeah, I’m ready.

Jason Momoa is getting in shape for Justice League

Here, Jason Momoa is dry. Scroll down for the wet.

While it stands to reason that anyone playing a hero called Aquaman would have to look good wet, I’d like to file a complaint with whoever got Jason Momoa, who plays Aquaman, quite this wet for the cover of Entertainment Weekly.

Look, I know this “photographer” was just doing their “job” but what gave them the right to shoot an image of this absolutely enormous, bearded, heavily tattooed man with the body of a god and the hair of a WWE wrestler and put it on the cover of a magazine?

Look at how intensely he’s staring into the camera/the viewer’s immortal soul. Is it frightening? Yes. Am I ready to charter a boat in search of my buff aquatic king? Also yes!

Pause for a minute and think about what Jason Momoa must smell like in this picture. Think about it, manifest it, and breathe deeply through your nose. Congratulations.

But that’s not all! the Barnes and Noble version of Entertainment Weekly also included looks at Momoa’s Aquaman costars Nicole Kidman and Amber Heard, and smack between those two high-key attractive women is Momoa again, blonder this time, looking like he’s going to either kill someone or…yeah that’s just a “kill someone” look.

In the article, Aquaman executive producer Peter Safran had this to say about Momoa’s performance as a thicc amphibious man-hunk:

“Rarely has a superhero character been married to the real-life actor as much as Aquaman and Jason Momoa. “He’s authentically from two worlds, he’s this real physical specimen, he’s got this humor which he’s never been allowed to play before — in every regard he is Aquaman.”

A real physical specimen indeed.

Wonder Woman director Patty Jenkins announced Wednesday morning the game-changing return of Chris Pine as Steve Trevor for the film’s 2019 sequel.

If you saw Wonder Woman in 2017, you may recall one key detail about Steve Trevor: HE DIED. Or so we thought?? In a devastating sequence during the final battle, Steve bid Diana goodbye, gave her his family heirloom, and flew straight to his death.

OR SO WE THOUGHT.

Gal Gadot also shared an early still from the movie which shows Diana contemplating a series of cryptic television screens.

We learned early in June that the Wonder Woman sequel will likely be set in 1984, and Jenkins’ tweet suggests Wonder Woman 1984 may even be….”

We may have a clue about when ‘Wonder Woman 2’ takes place

Diana puts her game face on in Wonder Woman.

DC’s Geoff Johns may have dropped a serious hint about the Wonder Woman sequel – namely, the year it takes place.

Johns, DC Entertainment President and Chief Creative Officer, shared a teaser on Facebook Friday morning that simply read “WW84,” which might point to seeing our hero in 1984.

Johns uploaded the image as his cover photo, where it slid largely under the radar until The Hollywood Reporter sniffed it out. Presumably, the teaser means Wonder Woman 2 will jump ahead to 1984.

We knew the sequel would move forward in time, leaving 1917 (and Steve Trevor) in the dust, but having an exact year narrows this down immensely. By 1984, Diana could run into a young Bruce Wayne or Clark Kent – or almost anyone else in the DCEU, hero or villain. She could also wear a lot of pastels.

Wonder Woman 2 will release Nov. 1, 2019.
