why can't batman have a helmet/mask like that?
Look's cool. The Russo brothers hired a decent design team.
Keep it up marvel
Looks great, I don't really love the silver lines on the mask. In the trailer they look way more pronounced and shiny, and the suit doesnt look as detailed so I assume its a cg thing.
>Eyes look perfect
Give your head a shake DC
It would never work
Plus they don't convey emotion
I meant like Black Panther, not like Iron Man
Take this power ranger jungle fury shit to /m/.
>I meant like Black Panther, not like Iron Man
>yfw white eyes batman shows up in 10 years and is immediately called a Black Panther ripoff...
He's an idiot.
I'm really happy with the Black Panther suit. It looked pretty shit in the trailer, but I know it'll look fantastic once the CG is done in post. The concept arts have been close to perfect, so if the suit really looked like that later, then that would be great.
FINALLY A MARVEL CHARACTER I CAN RELATE TO
> As an African-American male, I found Entertainment Weekly's Captain America: Civil War cover disappointing. The fandom has very few African-American superheroes. Period. It's disappointing to see Black Panther singled out as the only hero that's trivialized on a cover that also features Iron Man and Captain America. Don't get me wrong, I get that it was an attempt at humor but it was poorly executed. The meow, makes Black Panther look meek, as if he doesn't belong there, standing next to two of Earth's Mightiest Heroes. Being lumped with the 'Real Housewives' reality series isn't doing BP any favors either.
Niggas are getting triggered!
>all the social media butthurt over a "meow"
>Both jokes in EW's cover copy emasculate a character that represents Black success; the end result is problematic and oddly tone-deaf.
Do EW and Marvel even know what year it is
So far, I'm not quite sure I like that approach. It seems too much like a superhero cartoon rather than a live action movie. I found myself really liking Ant-Man's use of lenses that have tinted glass, to keep a "full helmet" aesthetic, but that show the eyes and allow him to emote without having to remove the helmet.
The trailer look alright marvel bros.
In a few months, both these movies will be out!
The internet shitstorms Black Panther and Captain Marvel will cause will be glorious.
You literally can't win with these people, they will find something problematic no matter what. Just look how they lost their shit at the Widow subplot in AoU. I can bet they'll be some outrage at Carol's portrayal or at some insignificant shit she says that will be considered "problematic".
Looks fucking great. Best MCU costume next to Iron Man's armor design.
I think it'd work; the problem there is that the lenses are on the outside of the eye section, rather than within it, like with the BP costume.
And in terms of conveying emotion, with Batman you can do that with voice and posture.
No. No one is the same.
WE ARE ALL UNIQUE INDIVIDUALS, WHO MAY HAVE GODDAMN OVERLAPPING SIMILARITIES BUT WE ARE ALL FUCKING SPECIAL IN OUR OWN WAY.
JUST LIKE YOU MOTHERFUCKER.
GODDAMN I SO MAD I CAN'T EVEN COMPLIMENT RIGHT.
>white folks think I'm going to fall for this
>Do EW and Marvel even know what year it is
Yes they do, the thing is, Disney/Marvel dont give a shit about that and nobody should, the thing is, if this sparks controversy it will only make more people aware of the film "There is not such a thing as bad publicity"
Only because it was so easy to translate page to screen with his modern costume.
>You know Black Panther. I know Black Panther. But at this point, the average person out there in the world doesn't know Black Panther, even following actor Chadwick Boseman's brief live-action debut in the role in the recently released "Captain America: Civil War" trailer, which as of publication of this article has been viewed more than 40 million times on YouTube alone.
>So landing on the cover of "Entertainment Weekly" -- which even in the waning days of print media reported a 1.8 million circulation in 2013, along with a robust online presence -- is a big deal for the hero. This week's EW cover, released online today, features Boseman, in costume between Chris Evans as Captain America and Robert Downey Jr. as Iron Man (they're both unmasked, Boseman is not) promoting a cover story on "Civil War," which will introduce Black Panther to the Marvel Cinematic Universe before he goes on to star in a solo film set for 2018; the first Marvel film of the post-"Iron Man" era to star a Black superhero.
>It lll sounds pretty good until you take a closer look at the cover -- Black Panther has a "Meow" dialogue prompt above his head (Cap and Iron Man remain diaogue-free). This is the copy EW went with when introducing the first Black superhero in mainstream American comics to the world at large: "The biggest Marvel movie yet introduces Black Panther. He's tall, powerful -- and has claws that a Real Housewife would envy."
>Yes, one of the most historically significant characters in comic book history has been reduced to a joke -- twice! -- on the magazine cover where potentially millions of people (don't forget the multitudes who will see this cover in our nation's grocery stores and doctor's offices) will see said character for the first time. It's not fair to Boseman, an acclaimed actor set for the highest-profile role of a career that's already included some rather major roles (playing Jackie Robinson in "42," playing James Brown in "Get On Up"). It's not fair to the comics fans to whom Black Panther means a great deal in terms of progress and representation. It's not fair to comics in general, as it's yet another reminder that for a large part of the population, the medium is and will remain something to not take seriously at all costs. (And do panthers even meow?)
>Sure, Marvel has a lot of characters that invite having fun. "Guardians of the Galaxy," "Ant-Man" and even "The Avengers" have some inherent absurdity in their concepts, and the films reflect that. But specifically, Black Panther is a serious character -- he doesn't really crack jokes, and he's the super-smart, super-capable king of an African nation. As CBR columnist Joseph Illidge put it just this week in THE MISSION, "Black Panther exists in a unique category of heroes. That of the intellectual, wealthy ruler. He is a symbol of the Black male heritage, accomplishments, and aspirations. The Black Panther is the antithesis of the demonization of the American Black man, perpetuated by various parties in media and government institutions." Both jokes in EW's cover copy emasculate a character that represents Black success; the end result is problematic and oddly tone-deaf.
>But specifically, Black Panther is a serious character -- he doesn't really crack jokes, and he's the super-smart, super-capable king of an African nation.
Does this retard know he's talking about Marvel and there is zero chance the Black Panther movie won't be a quipfest?

Kek, they turned a genocidal AI into a quip machine but Black Panther is where they will draw the line with the jokes....
>Captain America 3
>Ironmanlet takes up as much space in the cover as the title character
I wonder if these people know that T'Challa is the king of a far-right racist state that does not care at all about the black people outside their borders because it considers them and everyone else savages.
He looks like he doesn't know how to run. Like a giant lumbering down a street. His mask also looks like a straight up motorcycle helmet in the shots, like it's made out of plastic instead of what's supposed to be some kind of vibranium weave.
Black people shouldn't pat themselves on the back about a black superhero being presented in the media when there's bigger issues to deal with. The media is tossing them a bone as a response to famine.
He's coming from a place of hope, anon. Let him dream that it will actually be a distinguished representation of the Black Panther story, and not Martin Freeman as Everett Ross mugging for the camera for 2 hours at "Wow, Africa whodathunkit"?
>"Guardians of the Galaxy," "Ant-Man" and even "The Avengers" have some inherent absurdity in their concepts,
But "Black Panther", "magician priest king of a fictional hyper advanced kingdom" isn't ?
Fuck. Really. And I say that as a west african currently trying to make a fun comic out of crazy west african tales.
I'm mad. Mostly because this shit passed through the hands of a bunch of people and all of them thought it was good.
>>So let's leave the black thing out entirely, what other fictional world leaders would be best described with "meow?" None. Ever. Dammit.
But real life world leaders face far harsher ridicule. Obama is frequently called a spineless wimp and so much of the left-leaning media used to not-so-subtly imply Bush was mentally handicapped.
Apocalypse actually fits in, not being ironic or shitposting but he genuenly looks like he belongs with them. Panther looks out of place because the materials look expensive and sturdy whereas Power Rangers look extremely cheap and simplistic
Its not actually brighter, just less filtered. In Man of Steel it actually looks good color wise on set pictures. This movie is obviously filtered too even though the other two weren't I just wish they would cut it out
I dont like it
The helmet - thatv I'm even calling it a helmet is why I dont like it. Looks overdesigned - whats up with the lines. This is New 52 Black Panther
Unlike Tony theres not gonna be a scene every 10 seconds of Chadwicks face inside the suit
So they finally got a real black superhero and they cover up his face most of the time
Shaking my damning head
>MFW this is Marvel's BP characterization for their comedy franchise.
>BLACK PANTHER IS NOT FUCKING AFRICAN AMERICAN SUPERHERO.
>HE IS GODDAMN AFRICAN ROYALTY.
T'Challa has as much relation to African Americans as they do to Africans living in huts and wielding spears.
>Owned by Time, subsidiary of Warners.
Bravo, DC/WB. BRAVO.
>"Black Panther exists in a unique category of heroes. That of the intellectual, wealthy ruler. He is a symbol of the Black male heritage, accomplishments, and aspirations.
Reminds me of when people got #triggered in Jurassic World when someone said "the pakis are out of control!", the characters obviously meant the dinosaurs but those people "felt it" as a racist slur against pakistanis
At this point if Black Panther just sneezes in a random scene people will scream about how it's problematic because it made the black man look weak
not him but let's give this a try. Spoilered in case anyone else wants to make an attempt.
Sudan? Sudan's in Africa, right? Yeah, going with that.
Turns out back when Dave was in rich boy's school he stuck his dick in a dead pig as a jokey thing. Someone he knew then recently wrote about it in a book and people sorta took the joke and ran with it.
>“As far as the storytelling is concerned, the vibranium is a metal that is dynamic. It can change how it’s used. It’s not a liquid, but it has the ability to change shape and change form and still have its strength. I think there a lot of things about that in the mythology that I think has a lot of potential in terms of the storytelling,” Boseman says.
A book was written that alleges the current PM, as part of a college fraternity hazing ritual, stuck his penis into the mouth of a decapitated pig's head as it was resting on the lap of another man.
That's a hell of a thing to digest.
>Obama is frequently called a spineless wimp
Obama's got balls man, he can bomb a hospital and then assure the world "it's fine, we'll investigate ourselves and determine that it wasn'--I mean, determine IF it was a war crime"
He can have his people spy on everyone in the world and lie under oath about it, then change the name of the law allowing him to do so and pretend like it's going to stop
He can straight up lie to the American people about what the TPP is and what it will do
Man's definitely not spineless, gotta give credit where it's due.
I've never understood why British politics has the reputation of being staid and boring while American politics is considered the carnival of insanity.
I can't think of many American politicians who've fucked a pig. Monica Lewinsky, sure. And sometimes we make dentures out of the teeth of slaves, and sometimes we murder women and dump their bodies in lakes.
But sexual acts with a pig? Draw a line somewhere, you freaks.
Totally fabricated. Don't believe their shit.
His teeth were made of ivory.
Because he looks like a Gatchaman, duh.
So you would rather Batman wear bulky rubber armor for the 8th time in a row and be unable to move or perform any decent action scenes yet again (without the help of a CGI stunt double) than risk a resemblance to a TV show?
I can already see the shit storms that are coming

I'd rather him look like Batman??
I mean stuff like the cape is the whole point of his whole Bat iconography. If we're ever blessed with a Batman Beyond movie, I have no doubt you'll be one of the same anons to ape around with "lol he looks like Black Panther!"
New article about the fight scene at the airport
We learn also finally learn who Ant-man gets to fight.
>>Suddenly a boy unmask himself
>>He is WHITE
He's right though. People shit themselves over representation but it's trivial a lot of the time. It's good to see someone like yourself in movies and shows, but people aren't gonna treat you any differently.
Like, it's kind of a non-point he's trying to make but he's not wrong.
Sound like you just got triggered. You know he is right, black people tend to dress themselves in cons as white heroes even if black heroes already exist or if a heroes gets turned black just like the examples he gives. But no matter what, you are not allowed to try any sort of personification of a black character because that is supposed to be just as racist as if he was doing blackface.
Go back to tumblr/reddit if you feel offended
Kill yourself faggot. Can't take a joke?
>Macrophotography of Scott climbing on ScarJo's ass
That's exactly what the character is supposed to be. He's a (uncommon) black power fantasy. In touch with the politics of his home, overpowering to his contemporaries, mystically attuned, wealthy beyond measure from vibranium, married to Storm, neutral in the peddling affairs of others from Civil War...
Black Panther is a very clear character. But I don't relate to him in any real way. To be fair, I think Africa can go fuck off collectively. Often enough they will be living in America and are Black when it's convenient and become African when it isn't.
Sure, I like having a badass black character I can sorta self-insert into, but when I see the guy I think of him in the same category as Doctor Doom. If he was a bad guy prodding his whiskers or whatever the fuck in other people's business he'd probably be more popular.
Storm should ship with Gambit.
>whenever white people have something I'm supposed to complain about it
I never understood this. Just because BP is in between the two white main characters the cover is racist and I have to cry to Al sharpton about it?
I think it's because Batman's mask doesn't cover his whole face like Black Panther.
BP is like an African American power fantasy now even if he wasn't intended to be that way.
Also when will Murican black people realize African black people don't give a shit about them and their struggles.
>not all things translate well to live action
Batfleck's suit shows otherwise.
And he was created by two Jewish men, honestly Static is more of a black success character than Panther since his creation involved actual Black Americans and Milestone was made with the purpose of making minority focus superheroes by minority writers and artists.
But since Milestone and Priest never catered to the SJW agenda and it's not Marvel these idiots don't fucking care.
There was also an article in BC about how black creators noticed that black fans avoided them in cons or did not give a shit about their work if it wasn't a Marvel or DC comic and it pissed them off because these people wanted representation and more black comic creators but they are not willing to support said black comic creators.
Certainly more than Spider-Man.
These still shots of him standing up look great, but I want a Batman who can actually move someday
Well, another one. Adam West wasn't particularly stiff.
Yeah well they appropriated him, even fricking Hudlin inserted a bunch of AA BS to his Black Panther run.
Priest at least knew how to write him and he portrayed Wakanda as being xenophobic assholes with no care for anyone who wasn't Wakandan even if they were black, I think African-Americans think all black people are a brotherhood but realistically it's not like that.
I mean in my experience Black Latinos would back up a non-black Latino over a non-Latino Black person because they relate more to the other Latino, heck Black Latinos consider themselves Latino and then Black. Pretty sure a Black Frenchman will relate more to a White Frenchman over an African-American, ethnicity and countries play a big part on a person's identity.
I used to work with this African man named Tumumabaiu in Detroit, and he absolutely hated the black people in America weren't of pure blood. People don't like to acknowledge this, but the ideology of racial supremacy is way stronger in Africa than it is in America.
In any case, Wakanda is supposed to be a radical right wing theocratic monarchy. It's a hidden ancient kingdom like Narnia
I want to punch someone now.
>the ideology of racial supremacy is way stronger in Africa than it is in America.
Yup, American (North AND South) slaves weren't enslaved by whites, they were bought, from black slavers, who traded both people and gold for bright-colored textiles.
That's how I learned it from a Portuguese history stand-point.
>I think African-Americans think all black people are a brotherhood but realistically it's not like that.
That couldn't be further from the truth. Plenty of black people recognize the difference between themselves and africans. Hell, we recognize the difference between ourselves and our country ass cousins.
It's by and large not us. It's those white hipster college kids in Portland and California that took a break from getting dyed sidecuts to lump all of us, and latinos, and indians, and asians, in to one big "colored people" group for reasons that are supposedly for our benefit.
Please stop getting your info about us second or third hand from bored white chicks on the internet.
The biggest misconception is that Africans are all ignorant tribal savages. There have been prominent civilizations throughout history in the northern and eastern coasts of Africa. Guess what? They were just as brutal and warlike as every other civilization throughout history. The Middle East and Africa is actually where the mass enslavement of entire cultures of people was really instituted in the world.
Everyone always forgets about the Ottoman Empire
the arabs also enslaved many europeans, living in the coast of Italy or Spain was quite dangerous for centuries until modern times.
The whole Maghreb was dedicated to piracy.
>dindunuffins get triggered to hell and back because of one "meow"
Calling it now, Tony spends the whole movie saying shit like
>"here kitty kitty"
>"hmmmph, he even lands on his feet."
>"What's wrong? Cat got your tongue?"
>"GUYS THE CAT'S OUT OF THE BAG"
>mfw he accidentally falls into her bra, slips through
I fucking wish disney would
Why don't these people understand that the whole reason it's funny because it's a sharp contrast between powerful character and weak "meow" of small cat?
If it was black cat or catwoman in the cover with the meow it would just be stupid.

Not him either, but:

>He looks like he doesn't know how to run. Like a giant lumbering down a street.
No, he looks more catlike in his run than someone like Cap. Notice his fingers are outstretched and his exaggerated swinging arms. That's perfect Panther God form
Yup, original Black Panther, coming through.
You also got your privileged black college rich kids who feign oppression to blame for that shit as well.
But it's a fact that Black Americans annoy other black people from other countries, mostly because we get a lot of US media shit thrown at us and they don't tend to depict you guys well either.
Also the Africans I've met really hate you, probably because of what >>77882342 said
Yeah but it doesn't mean shit when you're from another country.
I am Bolivian and black and if you're black and American then you're still a gringo in my and my family's eyes, I have more in common with a non-black Bolivian than I have with you.
It's shit. Apart from the fabric's god awful texture, it's literally a brought-to-the-screen version of Millar's TDKR Bats, and it translates horrifically. It's the worst of the live action batsuit no matter how much you wish to deny it.
>Apart from the fabric's god awful texture, it's literally a brought-to-the-screen version of Millar's TDKR Bats, and it translates horrifically. It's the worst of the live action batsuit no matter how much you wish to deny it.
>MLK was starting to preach some more radical and violent methods towards the end of his life.
That's not true at all.
He was radical from the start.
The lionized, sanitized version of MLK was never real, nor was the idea that white people in the 60's were just so gosh darn fond of him.
He was actively disliked by the white majority, and he was immensely frustrated with moderate whites who tolerated systemic abuse and persecution.
Fun fact: MLK wasn't liked by blacks either. A poll before hid death showed that 60 percent of blacks didn't like him either. It was only after his assassination that he became a martyr and people liked him. So as a little hint to all the people wishing death upon and threatening
Anita, stop it. But whatever, controversy sells. Even if there was no controversy to begin with, simply saying that there was will get people talking. We never learn and the cycle of stupidity will never end. Hail Satan!
