Black Panther is not only one of the more interesting and accomplished superhero movies ever made, it’s also the smartest and most socially-aware Marvel movie. Which is why it’s gratifying that the Black Panther Blu-ray has so many great extras, but also frustrating that it’s missing some key ones.
Ever since Marvel Studios began their box office hot streak with 2008’s Iron Man, some so-called “serious” film fans and critics have lamented that these movies are nothing more than cinematic popcorn, devoid of any real substance. But that’s the last thing they’ll be able to say about Black Panther, which is not only the most serious Marvel movie to date, but the most socially-conscious and thought-provoking as well.
Kotobukiya have announced that they’ll release statues of characters from Batman comics, The Defenders, the upcoming Black Panther movie, the Resident Evil video games, and Star Wars: The Last Jedi this summer.
Funko have announced that they will release a series of Mopeez, their sad sack plush toys, based on the movie Captain America Civil War this May.
