There’s a new ‘Black Panther’ song by Kendrick Lamar because we weren’t hyped enough already

Thought you couldn’t possibly get any more excited for Marvel’s Black Panther?

What if we told you Kendrick Lamar produced the soundtrack? And that the first song from it is a new song by him and SZA? And that you can listen to it right here, right now?

That’s what we thought.

Per the press release, Lamar is working with Anthony “Top Dawg” Tiffith to curate and produce Black Panther: The Album, in close collaboration with Black Panther director Ryan Coogler.

“Marvel Studios’ Black Panther is amazing, from its cast to its director. The magnitude of this film showcases a great marriage of art and culture,” Lamar said in the statement. “I’m truly honored to contribute my knowledge of producing sound and writing music alongside Ryan and Marvel’s vision.”

The press release additionally notes that Black Panther will be the first Marvel Cinematic Universe release to feature multiple original songs created just for the film, so today’s “All The Stars” is just the start of it.

Lamar’s song “DNA” was previously used to soundtrack a Black Panther sizzle reel shown at Comic-Con. At the time, the cast and crew gushed about how perfectly Lamar’s music suited their film.

“It’s actually oddly literal for our trailer’s purposes,” Coogler said during the Comic-Con panel. “I think a lot of the cultural things we’re dealing with in Wakanda are in the zeitgeist in the African American community.”

However, it was only in December that we got an inkling Lamar would be directly involved with the film. The music video for “Love” included a quick shot of a clapperboard reading “B. Panther Soundtrack Coming Soon.”

Lamar and Black Panther sound like a match made in pop culture heaven. And if that first song is any indication, we’re gonna be playing this album on repeat for the rest of the year.

Black Panther hits theaters Feb. 16. Only 42 days left to go!

5 Comics to Read Before You See Deadpool 2

“He’s the breakout character of Deadpool 2, as well as the next step in Josh Brolin’s unlikely plan to play a comic book character in every cinematic universe. (Don’t forget that in addition to Thanos in Avengers: Infinity War he also played Jonah Hex in the 2010 DC movie of the same name.) Yes, Cable is a time-traveling toughie fans have been waiting to see on the big screen for a long time and he’s finally here! What’s that? You don’t know who he is? You’re worried you’ll look like a n00b at the theater this weekend? Quit your fretting, friends; here are the five comic book runs you should check out for the best summation of everyone’s favorite gun-toting, half-man, half-machine.

Marvel

New Mutants (Vol. 1) #87-100

The initial appearances of Cable are, in retrospect, fascinating historical documents that reveal how much of the character was in place from the beginning—notably, his iconography, despite costume changes from issue to issue—and how much wasn’t. As his characterization slowly cools into place, you get to see how a cypher cyborg from the future became a fan-favorite character. This run also offers up the first appearances of Deadpool and Domino (another Deadpool 2 highlight), if you’re into that sort of thing. (Creator Rob Liefeld was a productive man back in the day.)

How to read it: Available digitally and in the X-Force: Cable & the New Mutants print collection.

Marvel

Cable (Vol. 1) #97-107

More than a decade after his debut, this run feels like it shows a version of Cable as the dude he should’ve been all along: someone who eschews superheroics for techno espionage and finds trouble almost…”

I am… great. Seriously. It’s just really dusty in here.

Spoiler Alert: This article discusses the shocking ending of Infinity War, which you really should have seen by now. 

We’re not crying you’re crying everyone’s crying.

Guardians of the Galaxy director James Gunn has revealed an overwhelmingly sad fact about Groot in Avengers: Infinity War and yeah, we’re not ok.

What’s all this blubbering about? Groot’s final line, uttered as he once again evaporates from our lives into a cloud of Infinity Stone-inflicted nothingness. Thanos, ya jerk.

Gunn hopped on Twitter to answer a question on this line from a fan on Sunday, and dropped this devastating truth nugget:

Groot’s final line, as he disintegrates into Thanos-clicked dust like many of your favourite Marvel heroes, is delivered to? Rocket.

Our bratty teenage space tree thinks of former freelance criminal and fellow Guardian Rocket Raccoon as his dear ol’ dad, guys — so much so, that he broke his regular “I am Groot,” utterance tendency to say so. Someone hold me.

Yeah, folks on Twitter also lost their collective shit.

That thing Doctor Strange did in ‘Avengers: Infinity War’ was all part of the plan

Spoilers for Avengers: Infinity War.

“14,000,605.

That’s how many possible futures Doctor Strange viewed during his sojourn through time on the surface of Titan. And, he told Tony Stark, of all those many futures, only one had a happy ending for everyone except Thanos.

It’s an important moment that’s easy to forget about in light of what happens next. Thanos shows up on Titan. The best battle sequence of the movie then ensues (don’t @ me), as Tony, Strange, Spider-Man, Nebula, Star-Lord, Mantis, and Drax gang on on the big guy.

It doesn’t turn out so well. Thanos has the immediate upper hand thanks to his cosmic glove, and even though…”
