Comic-Con is on it’s way and with it, hopefully some updates on the most anticipated films coming up. Black Panther is one of the most anticipated films, for many number one on their lists. In an interview with Entertainment Weekly, executive producer Nate Moore gave us a taste of what to expect in Black Panther.
“What I think we landed on was sort of a cross between James Bond and The Godfather. A big, operatic family drama centered around a world of international espionage. So hopefully we’re getting the best of both worlds.”
I don’t know about you, but this mix of tones sounds amazing to me. A feel of the spy world mixed with a family drama is the exact thing to expect, especially in the wake of their leader being killed, a power struggle would surely bubble up. Kevin Feige also talked a bit about the tone of the film, and assured fans that the upcoming film would be something new for everyone.
“I don’t think people are prepared for what this movie is going to be. Not just Black Panther, but the Dora Milaje, and Killmonger, and the entire design of Wakanda – both its traditional African-inspired elements, but also the Vibranium inspired techno-elements. I can’t think of a blend that has happened like that before in movies.”
Well I thought my hype couldn’t have gotten any higher for Black Panther, but somehow, it just continues to grow. What about you? Let us know how you feel about Moore and Feige’s quotes, or just tell us how excited you are for next February in the comments below, or on Twitter or Instagram!
Directed by Ryan Coogler, the film also stars Winston Duke, Martin Freeman, Florence Kasumba, Sterling K. Brown, Andy Serkis and John Kan.
