When two characters with super-human abilities are duking it out on a busy hovertrain track deep inside a subterranean mine, you assume there’s some Hollywood magic at work. VFX studio DNEG pulls back the curtain to reveal its post-production work on Black Panther’s climactic fight scene, including Chadwick Boseman’s…
There are few fights in the Marvel Cinematic Universe that can compare to Okoye’s epic brawl against Ulysses Klaue’s men in Black Panther.
Following in the industry trend of releasing a slew of limited series comics designed to capitalize on the box office success of live-action movies, Marvel’s just announced an all-new miniseries about the early life of Black Panther’s central villain.
While the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences is trying to figure out how to save face after the whole “Best Popular Film” category fiasco, Marvel Studios has been preparing to submit Black Panther for more Oscars than you ever would have imagined.
As a kid, Gifu City artist Dakota Alexander developed a lifelong love for ukiyo-e, a style of traditional Japanese woodblock painting that became popular during the Edo period. Like many young people, Alexander also happened to have a fondness for comic books and superheroes.
On a list of very bad potential ideas that Civil War and Black Panther avoided with the lightning reflexes of the the Black Panther himself, this one would’ve been near the top.
Some Easter Eggs just make us feel good.
Welcome back to Toy Aisle, io9's regular round up of all the lovely toys and merchandise we’ve spotted on the internet recently. This week, Shuri gets the incredible action figure she deserves, Christopher Robin’s take on Winnie the Pooh gets an adorable toy, and the Dude almost certainly abides. Check it out!
I mean, as Shuri told her brother in the movie, just because something works doesn’t mean it can’t be improved. That applies to both the finest tech Wakanda has to offer and Ludwig Göransson’s sublime soundtrack for Black Panther. Marvel and Hollywood Records both announced and dropped Black Panther: Wakanda Remixed…
Hasbro took to Comic-Con this week to lift the lead on some of its latest toys from both the world of Marvel and a galaxy far, far away—and if you loved Star Wars Rebels and Black Panther, boy is your wallet in for a pummeling.
It’s news that should come of no surprise to either people who saw Black Panther earlier this year or were aware of the conclusion of Brian Michael Bendis and Michael Gaydos’s run on Jessica Jones, but two beloved Marvel heroines are getting all-new comic series. And you can actually start reading one of them right…
Yes, Marvel is a huge comics publisher more than capable of making its own comic books aimed at younger kids. Hell, they have a good bunch of them going right now! But a new deal between Disney and IDW Publishing is not the first time the House of Mouse has looked beyond Marvel to target younger comic readers.
Welcome back to Toy Aisle, io9's regular roundup of all things toys. This week, San Diego Comic-Con marches ever closer with even more exclusives, Batman Ninja strikes at your shelf, and Nerf is getting into laser tag. Check it out!
With Wakanda getting more involved in the affairs of the world after the events of Black Panther, one has to imagine major sports events are on the agenda, right after sharing advanced technology and helping the planet survive alien cataclysms. Which means it’s probably time they put together some soccer teams.
The current arc of Ta-Nehisi Coates, Daniel Acuña, and Joe Sabino’s space-bound Black Panther comic has thrust readers into the far future, where a wildly different group of Wakandans who have colonized the cosmos are in a, well... star war. A group of rebels are fighting the Wakandan space empire, and they’ve just…
The first Challenge Day sequence in Marvel’s Black Panther is one of the film’s best moments, full of majesty and great touches of world-building. When comedian Tiffany Haddish takes the place of M’Baku, like she did at last night’s MTV Movie & TV Awards, the ritual combat gets... freaky.
Ah, college. A beautiful time of learning, social exploration, and making up complete bullshit.
When characters are fighting to the death in a shallow pool of water perched on the edge of a cliff that’s halfway down the side of a towering canyon where a waterfall normally gushes... it’s safe to assume there’s some Hollywood magic at work. But as Scanline VFX reveals in this behind-the-scenes look at the making…
Just my luck: I’ve been dying for some shoes that make it look like I have gangrene! Vans has announced it’s partnering with Marvel to make sneakers, clothing, and accessories based around its iconic characters—meaning when you lightly kick that person who tried to steal your seat on the subway, they’ll also be…
Black Panther’s special effects have gotten a remarkable amount of attention. More than most films, we have substantial insight into how the effects were made, and why some effects turned out better than others. It’s exciting, really.
