Any publication capable of repeatedly enraging Donald Trump is one we should pay at least some attention to.

The latest cover of TIME magazine has struck a chord. It features Black Panther star Chadwick Boseman.

Accompanying the cover is a piece by journalist Jamil Smith

Smith’s article highlights the cultural significance of the film. He traces the history of the Black Panther comics, which first appeared in the civil rights era (1966 specifically), all the way up to the character’s inclusion in the MCU, and what this means for black representation in media.

“This is not just a movie about a black superhero,” Smith writes, “it’s very much a black movie. It carries a weight that neither Thor nor Captain America could lift: serving a black audience that has long gone under­represented.”

He points also to the film’s widespread acclaim and probable commercial success will dispel the myth that black films are only marketable to black people. 

“For a wary and risk-averse film business, led largely by white film executives who have been historically predisposed to greenlight projects featuring characters who look like them, Black Panther will offer proof that a depiction of a reality of something other than whiteness can make a ton of money.”

People are enjoying both the cover and the article.

So many people get hurt in the bloody ‘Punisher’ Season 2 Trailer

Published

“Frank Castle is back for another round of morally gray murder in Season 2 of Netflix’s The Punisher, and based on the above trailer, not much has changed.

Castle, played by Jon Bernthal, is loaded up with a whole bunch of guns and guilt in the trailer as he goes after a gang of masked villains the only way he knows how: bullets and a low, gruff voice.

“I’m not the one who dies, kid,” he grumbles, “I’m the one who does the killing.” It’s reminiscent of Arnold Schwarzenegger’s greatest ’80s action movies.

The Punisher Season 2 bursts onto Netflix on Jan. 18.”

Captain Marvel, the first female-led MCU film, is edging ever closer to release.

A new trailer for the film dropped during the college football National Championship game on Monday, revealing a little more on what we can expect from Brie Larson’s Carol Danvers.

There’s a glimpse and an explanation of who the shapeshifting Skrull are, plenty of power punches and photon blasts to boot, plus an amusing ribbing of the S.H.I.E.L.D. logo with Nick Fury, played by Samuel L. Jackson.

It’s the film’s third trailer, following on from the electrifying first and second trailers released in the last few months.

Captain Marvel is out in theaters Mar. 8, 2019.
