As Marvel and DC crank out more movies, the pointless rivalry between fans continues (even though both are successful). You wouldn’t know that from the way that creators for projects on either side act, though, since Wonder Woman director Patty Jenkins just praised the latest trailer for Black Panther.
Jenkins took to Twitter to offer her quick impressions of the new trailer for Black Panther:
Damn. This looks really great and powerful. Gave me chills! Can't wait to see it. https://t.co/uahWwOzSZP

Jenkins was previously set to direct Thor: The Dark World at Marvel Studios, but she dropped out of the project before production began in earnest. Based on her work on Wonder Woman – and The Dark World‘s mixed reception – it seems like Marvel missed a golden opportunity. Still, Jenkins doesn’t seem to hold that against them, and her enthusiasm for a competitor studio’s project is something that ought to repair the divide between fans.
Black Panther strikes on February 16, 2018. The movie will feature a cast that includes Chadwick Boseman as T’Challa (Black Panther), Lupita Nyong’o as Nakia, Danai Gurira as Okoye, Martin Freeman as Everett K. Ross, Daniel Kaluuya as W’Kabi, Angela Bassett as Ramonda, Forest Whitaker as Zuri, Letitia Wright as Shuri, Florence Kasumba as Ayo, John Kani as T’Chaka, Sterling K. Brown as N’Jobu, Michael B. Jordan as Erik Kilmonger, Andy Serkis as Ulysses Klaue, and Winston Duke as M’Baku (Man-Ape). In addition, Atandwa Kani has been cast in an unspecified role.
7 Reasons To Be Excited For ‘Black Panther’
Black Panther is coming back, and trust me when I say his movie will be worth seeing.
I know it’s hard to get excited when there are so many superhero movies coming out every year, but Black Panther is a character that deserves a shot on the big screen. Not only was he the first black superhero, he naturally serves as an extension to the rest of the MCU. Finally we’re not focusing on someone from New York City, T’Challa was born and raised in Wakanda, a whole different jungle compared to NYC.
Black Panther is as smart as Mr. Fantastic and as fierce a fighter as Batman. Unlike most of the marvel characters who are defined by one trait, Iron Man as dependent on tech or Cap as overly patriotic, Black Panther is a multi-faceted character.
I almost gave this list 8 reasons just because I’m excited to see what Stan Lee’s cameo is gonna be. Fingers crossed for a stereotypical tourist on safari.
