Trailer Thursday 2/26

It’s Trailer Thursday!!!

As Black History Month comes to a close, so does the series of trailers from African-American films. I will probably do similar series of trailer in other prominent months, if I can come up with enough, but we’ll see.

In the meantime, it seems like I should end the month with a trailer for some powerful film like Selma, Do the Right Thing, 42,  Jungle Fever, Malcolm X, Boyz N the Hood, The Butler, The Color Purple, 12 Years a Slave, etc., but I want to go in a lighter, more fun direction.

Much has been said about the lack of a prominent African-American superhero on the big screen. Sure, there is Falcon (who is the new Captain America in the comics…maybe this will happen on the big screen soon?), War Machine (Iron Patriot, or whatever name they’re giving him now), and back in the day there was Spawn and Blade. Rumors are circulating that the new Spider-Man will not be white. If they’re going the direction I think they’re going, he’ll be half black, which is half of something I suppose. Halle Berry played Storm. That’s all there is to say about that, really.

In 2018, Black Panther, one of the biggest African-American superheroes out there will come to big screen. I’m not sure, be may make an appearance in this summer’s Avengers: Age of Ultron, but we’ll see.

Black Panther had a motion comic animated series that aired on BET a few years back. If you watch all the episodes together, it plays out like a movie. Watch and enjoy Marvel Knights: Black Panther
