#75 | #BlackPantherSoLIT

We’re still super-hype over Black Panther’s appearance in “Captain America: Civil War”, and his impending entry into his own Ryan Coogler-directed solo film in 2018. And apparently, after Marvel’s hiring of Michael B. Jordan to co-star with Chadwick Boseman and their courting of Lupita Nyong’o to do the same, so are many of y’all. We discuss the announcements, the #BlackPantherSoLIT hashtag (soul food at the concession stand!), why this film is going to be so important, and more.

We also review “The Boss” and “The Big Short”, discuss Marvel’s success with their films in the light of Fox’s continued screwing up with “X-Men: Apocalypse” and a nebulous “Fantastic Four” sequel, and give extensive reviews of the (absolutely groundbreaking) season 1 finale of “Underground”, the penultimate episodes of the current seasons of “Empire” (and Jussie Smollett trolling the internet in the interests of the show), and Wentworth Miller’s exit from “DC’s Legends of Tomorrow”.

John also eulogizes “The Good Wife” following its series finale, and we ponder who in addition to (or besides) Madonna should be tapped to perform a Prince tribute, Sumner Redstone’s, uh, extracurricular activities with the ladies in his life and Azalea Banks’ figurative destruction at the hands of Disney child star Skai Jackson.

Join Brandon, John, Kareem, Ken, and Jamison as we discuss, dissect, and try to make sense of the past, present, and future in film, television, music, animation, race relations in media - and on occasion comics and tech - while trying to remain sane. If you’re tired of hearing the same (*ahem*) monochromatic take on modern media, we’re the podcast for you!
