Marvel Studios’ “Black Panther” follows T’Challa who, after the death of his father, the King of Wakanda, returns home to the isolated, technologically advanced African nation to succeed to the throne and take his rightful place as king. But when a powerful old enemy reappears, T’Challa’s mettle as king—and Black Panther—is tested when he is drawn into a formidable conflict that puts the fate of Wakanda and the entire world at risk. Faced with treachery and danger, the young king must rally his allies and release the full power of Black Panther to defeat his foes and secure the safety of his people and their way of life.

Directed by Ryan Coogler from a script he co-wrote with Joe Robert Cole, Black Panther stars Chadwick Boseman, Michael B. Jordan, Lupita Nyong’o, Danai Gurira, Martin Freeman, Daniel Kaluuya, Letitia Wright, Winston Duke, Sterling K. Brown, Florence Kasumba, John Kani, with Angela Bassett, Forest Whitaker, and Andy Serkis.

Black Panther is now available on Digitial HD, 4K Ultra HD, Blu-Ray, and DVD.

What We Learned About ‘Spider-Man: Far From Home’ At CCXP

Previous1 of 6

Spider-Man Far From HomeSony Pictures and Marvel Studios shared some brand new information on their highly-anticipated sequel, Spider-Man: Far From Home. The film, which is the follow-up to 2017's Spider-Man: Homecoming marks the return of Tom Holland as Peter Parker following the release of Avengers: Endgame and will also feature the cinematic debut of Mysterio, who is portrayed by Academy Award-nominee Jake Gyllenhaal.

Here are some of the things we have learned about Spider-Man: Far From Home following its presentation at the 2018 Comic Con Experience (CCXP) in Brazil. Click "Next" to find out.

1. Peter Parker & Michelle Will Be Involved Romantically

Spider-Man Homecoming Far From Home Tom Holland Zendaya

In Spider-Man: Homecoming, we saw Peter crushing on Liz Allan (Laura Harrier), who has since moved away from Queens, New York with her mother following the fallout of her father Adrian Toomes' (Michael Keaton) crimes as the Vulture. With Liz now out of the picture, we have Michelle Jones (Zendaya) also known as "MJ" that Peter has his eyes on. In Homecoming, Michelle seemed to tow the line between cold and friendly to Peter, with hints that she was romantically interested in him the whole time.

Now, it looks like Peter and Michelle have since grown closer with one another following the events of Homecoming. Perhaps their romantic connection will play a significant role in Peter's motivations in Far From Home. 

2. Aunt May Supports Her Nephew As Spider-Man In Far From Home

Aunt May Spider-Man: Far From Home

Aunt May (Marisa Tomei) found out about her beloved nephew Peter's secret at the end of Homecoming. Now that she's aware that he continues his hero work as our Friendly Neighborhood Spider-Man, she is also fully-supportive of him despite the fact that he continues to put himself in danger.

3. Happy Hogan & Aunt May Share A Romantic AffairSpider-Man Far From Home Happy Hogan Aunt May

This one comes as a bit of a surprise. Based off of information from CCXP, it appears that Aunt May is romantically involved with none other than Happy Hogan (Jon Favreau). This certainly won't be awkward for Peter.

4. Spider-Man & Mysterio Start Are Brought Together By Nick Fury

Spider-Man Far From Home Jake Gyllenhaal Mysterio Marvel

The narrative for Far From Home will begin with Nick Fury (Samuel L. Jackson) bringing Spider-Man and Quentin Blake/Mysterio together for a mission in which they must hunt down the Elementals. Mysterio has some knowledge about the Elementals and wants to defeat them to make the world safer.

The unlikely duo has been described to have a "brothers in arms" dynamic. What could possibly go wrong?

5. Spider-Man & Mysterio's Relationship Is The Central Focus

Spider-Man Far From Home Jake Gyllenhaal Mysterio Marvel

During the presentation at CCXP, Gyllenhaal revealed that Far From Home will be a unique Spider-Man film due to the relationship between the beloved hero and Mysterio:

"The central point of the film is the relationship of Peter with Mysterio, which is a completely new dynamic. Tom Holland is the best Spider-Man. There's no one more professional than him."

Seeing Holland and Gyllenhaal acting alongside eachother will certainly be a highlight.

    Why is Resident Evil on this list? Who still watches those? I stopped after the 2nd one.

  • Rob

    Potentially a very good year for big budget blockbusters, but you lost me on the last three movies. Underworld and Resident Evil sequels?!?

  • My personal list of most anticipated (in order):

    First tier (all must-sees):

    Justice League
    Wonder Woman
    Guardians of the Galaxy, Vol. 2
    Thor: Ragnarok
    Star Wars: Episode VIII
    Kong: Skull Island
    Live By Night
    Logan
    Spider-Man: Homecoming
    Blade Runner 2049

    Next tier (hope to get to them):

    Valerian: City of a Thousand Planets
    The Mummy
    Kingsmen: The Golden Circle
    Ghost in the Shell
    Alien: Covenant

    • G-Man

      Kingsman was fantastic, sad to see the sequel so low on your list.

  • G-Man

    Yeah as others are saying Underworld and Resident Evil definitely don’t belong. Was waiting for Kingsman to appear, and I guess the best was saved for last.

    I mean Furious 8 should be put over Underworld or RE, and then to fill the other spot? Beauty and the Beast?

    And then personally I’d put John Wick 2 wayyy over King Arthur.

    Other notable mentions:
    A Cure for Wellness
    Power Rangers
    Lego Batman
    Pirates of the Caribbean 5
    Coco
