SSNPod #239 | Wakanda Steps Out | #saysomethingnew

Marvel Studios rolled out the purple – yes, purple! – carpet for the premiere of “Black Panther,” and between the fashion and the celebrities in attendance, we all collectively got our lives as Black folks. The SSN crew discusses the premiere, as well as “Gambit” being shut down, Sony reviving “Men in Black” and “Bad Boys” with new films we’re not sure people asked for, Mo’Nique striking back with the facts about her Netflix deal, and bitter internet trolls hatching a hair-brained scheme to sabotage “Black Panther’s” Rotten Tomatoes score.

Plus, we announce the winner of our January contest giveaway!
