I’ve said this before on Pure Fandom, and that’s because I’ve told anyone who will listen: Black Panther is the breakout star of Captain America: Civil War. As a result, T’Challa’s February 2018 movie has become highly-anticipated, to say the least.
Additionally, Black Panther has gotten even more fandom from his newest comic book series. Issue #2 has a brand new video attached to get fans excited, titled “Black Panther: A Nation Under Our Feet – Part Two.” You can check that out right here![youtube https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jXaBwBoZ5l8]
The track you hear accompanying the video is brand new as well, from Prodigy of Mobb Deep, titled “Beast With It.”
“I am honored to be a part of another cool project from Marvel Comics and this new video series is going to be a smash,” Prodigy of Mobb Deep said about his involvement.
A new video will be released monthly as part of the Black Panther series, recapping and chronicling the comic books.
Black Panther #1, written by The Atlantic national correspondent and National Book Award winner, Ta-Nehisi Coates, accompanied with outstanding art by Brian Stelfreeze, garnered international buzz and attention upon the announcement of the series in 2015. It also debuted as the best-selling comic for the month of April, and is on track to be one of the best-selling comics of 2016.
I have a few thoughts to go with this exciting announcement from Marvel. First, it looks like the comic book conglomerate is trying to blend its world with the hip-hop world, and I think this is the perfect opportunity to do so. It could be the door opening to a new and expansive fanbase for Marvel. Second, I wonder how much of the comic book (and video) series will give us a sneak peek into the 2018 movie people are clamoring for. Even if it’s just a little bit, there’s plenty to get excited about if you’re the Black Panther (or one of his fans).
