What exactly is special about Black Panther? Blade did it 20 years ago and Spawn did it 23 years go. There are probably others. I think people are just falling for Marvel's hype in saying "oh we care about black people lol" but meanwhile they're just doing it for money (and it paid off)

Don't forget Hancock, and yes it's just for money but blacks are too stupid and shortsighted to think about something like that

The good man, though a slave, is free; the wicked, though he reigns, is a slave, and not the slave of a single man, but what is worse the slave of as many masters as he has vices.

Neither Blade or Spawn are about african heritage and they aren't predominantly black either. So no, not the same thing.

Nothing. It's why audiences are giving it mediocre scores.

Saw black panther, blade is still ten times cooler. I dont get how anyone wouldnt habe blade in top 5 marvel movies. Spawn is kino because of john leguizamo, he killed it in that movie like most movies hes in.

Panther's entire premise is based around race and has an almost all black cast, black director and writers. Blade was made by a bunch of white people.

Wesley Snipes was originally supposed to play Black Panther years before Blade was made, but the movie never happened.

Nothing. It's just blacks are more susceptible to racebaiting and white cucks are guilted into saying it's a big deal.

That's all it is. Keep in mind, 90% of black people you meet think blacks are superior to all other races. Seriously. Most black people think they are superior to all other races.

There is no such thing as a colorblind society. Black people clearly resent every other race. I say we encourage them to do a 21st century Marcus Garvey and leave en masse to foudn their own Wakanda.

You dumb doodie head , Wesley is so black he's blacker than all of black panther cast put together

Carson Collins
Carson Collins

It's because of the NAME and who's directing and comprising the cast, all of it together

But mostly the name. Blacks will naturally relate it to the organization: the Black Panthers.. a symbol of black power. The blackest of the black.
And now they see a mainstream superhero called Black Panther.. it's no wonder they showed up in african garb. They don't see it as a corporate marvel comic rehash, it's namesake is banking on black culture that goes back decades. They're not seeing this movie through your eyes.. obviously but the difference is so off you'd probably never figure it out on your own.

To them it's not just a black hero but one that's all about the fight for social rights, mending their slave past, rediscovering their african heritage and the struggle for equality since the Jim Crow era.. or so they thought. Little did they know it's just a marvel comic

They got bamboozled once again by the man

Gabriel Evans

African American isn't the same as African.

Black panther was the first African hero.

The movie explores concepts like tribalism, colonisation and isolationism.

Besides, while Hancock, Blade and Spawn may feature a single...black...lead, it doesn't explore African culture.

You could swap the ethnicity of any of the above and the movie would play as is.

Black panther is inherently African.

And in cinemas now.

Sebastian Clark

Blade was made by a bunch of white people.

SO IS EVERYTHING ELSE ON THE PLANET YOU STUPID FUCKING FAGGOT, HOLY SHIT!

You're like the typical leftist faggot who complains about most superheroes being white without realizing that in the 1960s, when they were created, the United States was 90% WHITE YOU CUNT.

Jackson Hill

Because I dont' see any other race saying a superhero movie with a black hero "doesn't count" because it had too many white people.

Eli Robinson

African American isn't the same as African.
Black panther is inherently African.

So then why are a bunch of African Americans acting like it represents them when they are just black people who aren't African?

Ryder Thomas
Ryder Thomas

No, it doesn't count because you could change Blade's skin color to white and it would not change a single thing about the movie. The same cannot be said for Black Panther

Brody Lee

Not true. Blade's skin color is very important because he's a vampire who stayed in the sun too long and it burnt his skin.

Uh, isn't he a half-vampire and that's why he resists sunlight?

In any case, make some dumb plot change like that, and it doesn't change the fact that Blade doesn't reflect on being an African or discuss blackness the way Black Panther did.

The sjw's I know have said "well exactly, it's been 20 years since Blade and comic book movies were niche back then. They need representation now!". So basically it's a big deal now because normies are into comic book movies. If this had come our even 7 years ago, without BLM and all the other polarizing shit the media can inject into their articles about the movie, I don't think it would have been hyped nearly as much. Even Luke Cage wasn't hyped as much and that has more of a connection to blacks in America than BP.

Of course all of my black friends who also happen to be into comics weren't anymore excited for this movie than they were for previous MCU movies. They recognized the hyperbole of the media and Disney marketing machine.

If there's a darker nigger in Hollywood besides the ultranigger from Gladiator/Blood Diamond, I haven't seen him. He's that 11:59 PM type dark.

The best part about Blade was that it didn't have the whole "WE WUZ" shit tied to it. The first one in particular was just a great movie that stood on it's own merits and the chemistry/casting of the actors involved.

Black Panther is literally a WE WUZ cash-in that's been comedically politicized for the normies and that /pol/ and stormfront sockpuppets have been hyper-memeing about from their BLACKED sockpuppets.

Isn´t that a good thing? Same with women... if the goal is equality then the focus should not be race or sex because by calling attention to that the movie would be discriminating right?

There is no such thing as "good discrimination" or "bad discrimination"... discrimination is the recognition of a difference and if such difference is made to be a big deal then there is no equality.

Isn´t femminism supposed to be about equality? isn´t diversity supposed to be about making race inconsecuential as to avoid prejudice? If so, then Black Panther is not about diversity and Wonder Woman is not about femminism, those movies would be about black pride and women pride.
