I have to give to Disney for giving the humanoids one more reason to tune into Game Four of the National Basketball Association Finals (NBA) tonight on the American Broadcasting Company (ABC).
Besides the chance of the Golden State Warriors to get some sweet revenge on the defending NBA champions the Cleveland Cavaliers by wrapping the fourth game of the best of seven series in the 2017 NBA Finals on Friday evening at the Quicken Loans Arena in Cleveland Ohio, now Marvel Studios which works with Disney Studios will unveil the poster of the hero of the fictional nation of Wakanda which is T’Challa who goes by the secret identity of the super hero The Black Panther.
The Panther motion picture that stars Chadwick Boseman as Black Panther. Ryan Coogler who directed the motion picture “Creed” that starred Michael B Jordan and Sylvester Stallone will be the director of the Black Panther movie which will be released in theaters on February 16, 2018.
Many people believe that the Black Panther character that was created by Stan Lee and the late Jack “King” Kirby is based on the group the Black Panther Party For Self Defense in 1966. The character was named Black Panther after a group of Black U S soldiers who served in World War II.
The poster is raising eyebrows since Chadwick Boseman’s pose on the poster that has him sitting on a throne is similar to their leader Huey P. Newton. Okay so a little bad publicity is already being created over a movie poster. Coincidence or is a tribute to Newton? You make the call.
I do remember in the PBS Kids hero series called Wordgirl which ran on PBS Kids from 2007-2015, there was one character named The Handsome Panther who was Chuck The Evil Sandwich Making Guy who dressed as a panther wearing a black costume since he wanted to try to play a new villain character. Okay so Wordgirl was a comedy. Lighten up humanoids.
