Marvel Fixes ‘Avengers: Endgame’ Poster Snubbing Danai Gurira After Fan Backlash

Nothing ― not spoilers, Easter eggs or even mistakes ― gets past eagle-eyed Marvel fans. When the new trailer and poster for the highly anticipated “Avengers: Endgame” arrived on Thursday, superhero devotees pored over every last detail only to discover a glaring omission.  The top credits feature every actor on the poster, including Josh Brolin who plays big bad Thanos and Bradley Cooper who voices a souped-up raccoon, except actress Danai Gurira. Check out the new poster for Marvel Studios’ #AvengersEndgame.

People Love That Chadwick Boseman, Constance Wu Presented At The Oscars

When the leads of two of the most culturally impactful movies of the last year get together, it’s no surprise that people freak out.  Chadwick Boseman and Constance Wu joined together in presenting the award for Best Original Song at Sunday night’s Oscars, which went to “Shallow” from “A Star Is Born.” And, being the faces of “Black Panther” and “Crazy Rich Asians” ― films lauded for their representation of communities of color and their unapologetic cultural elements ― Twitter went awf, with many advocating that the two stars be cast in a movie together.  Can Constance Wu and Chadwick Boseman just have a baby together #Oscars pic.twitter.com/nIceGFuoJo — 🇸🇴Mona🇸🇴 (@MonaOmar2) February 25, 2019 Tessa Thompson and Michael B Jordan presenting now, and Chadwick Boseman and Constance Wu about ...

CIA Live-Tweets During The Oscars And Is So Into ‘Black Panther’

Of all those live-tweeting the Oscars on Sunday night, there were few more surprising than … the CIA. The intelligence agency was absolutely gaga about “Black Panther” and its futuristic technology. “Good luck to Black Panther” and all the other nominees, gushed one tweet. It’s probably no coincidence that one of the good guys in that film is CIA agent Everett Ross (played by Martin Freeman). The tweets ― which were also linked to on the CIA’s website ― were part of the agency’s ongoing “Reel vs. Real CIA” examination of how realistic or almost-possible the technology presented in popular media is. Sunday’s messages polled followers on their favorite futuristic inventions in “Black Panther,” including virtual cars, kimoyo beads and Lethoso blankets (virtual cars won). One tweet also ...

In Order To Fight Zombies, Lupita Nyong’o Wrote A Letter To Taylor Swift

On Sunday night, Lupita Nyong’o and the cast of “Black Panther” won the Screen Actors Guild Awards’ top prize ― a moment that saw her jumping up and down in ecstasy on national television. Four hours later, she was beheading zombies at the Sundance Film Festival.  “Little Monsters” premiered at midnight, when Nyong’o was still reveling in “Wakanda forever” fever. She took a flight to Park City, Utah, at 6 the next morning to promote her zany zom-com, in which she plays a kindergarten teacher protecting her students from an outbreak of the walking dead during a sunny petting-zoo field trip. In between playing the ukulele during singalongs of “Old MacDonald Had a Farm” and Taylor Swift’s “Shake It Off,” Nyong’o darts around decapitating zombies and sparring with a deceptively selfish enterta...

‘Black Panther’ And ‘Crazy Rich Asians’ Casts Hung Out At SAG Awards

These pictures alone should win a statuette.  At Sunday night’s SAG Awards, the casts of diverse watershed movies “Black Panther” and “Crazy Rich Asians” came together for an epic photo.  Heavy hitters from both films, including Chadwick Boseman, Michael B. Jordan, Awkwafina, Henry Golding, Gemma Chan, Ronny Chieng, and directors Ryan Coogler and Jon M. Chu were spotted in star-studded snap.  Chu also shared photos of the entire group, featuring some members of the casts of “Bohemian Rhapsody” and “The Assassination Of Gianni Versace” as well.  Given the cultural impact of “Black Panther” and “Crazy Rich Asians,” which symbolized wins in black and Asian representation, fans (understandably) became emotional at the sight of the photo.   Even Chu commented on how “historic and beautiful” the...

The 2019 Oscar Letdown: ‘Black Panther’ And ‘A Star Is Born’ Are Dark Horses Now

The Oscars have joined the world’s spirited “Wakanda forever” refrain, exalting “Black Panther” ― 2018’s highest-grossing release ― with the first-ever Best Picture nomination for a superhero movie. But can “forever” last long enough to see the fan favorite win the top trophy on Feb. 24? Based on what the overall Oscar roster indicates, it’s questionable.  Academy Award statistics tell us that Best Picture winners almost always received nominations for Best Film Editing and Best Director as well. After all, what is a movie without slick editing and sage directing? “Black Panther” didn’t make either category, nor did it receive a single acting nod or screenplay recognition. The last film to win Best Picture without editing, directing, acting or writing nominations was 1932’s “Grand Hotel.” ...

‘Black Panther’ Becomes First Superhero Film To Score Best Picture Oscars Nomination
