The teams (or single team?) doing trailers Thor: Ragnarok and Black Panther are really nailing it.

On the other hand, the scene where Black Panther fights Bad Black Panther makes me less interested in the movie itself. I think the only Marvel movie where The Hero, But Bad worked as an antagonist was Winter Soldier, and that was mostly because the main thrust of the movie wasn't so much Cap vs. Bucky, but rather Cap vs. The Security State. I hope Bad Black Panther is some minor incident resolved early on and not the crux of the story or the climax the movie leads up to...

Well, Black Panther's traditional foes are sometimes...less sensitive culturally.

FWIW, the use of Immigrant Song in the Ragnarok trailer is, indeed, quite inspired.

I want Black Panther to fight Evil Creed and I want that fight to last... many minutes.

I really like Michael B. Jordon, and I am down to watch him do pretty much whatever.

Two stunt doubles in matching Good and Evil cat-suits though? Well . . .

I finished watching Defenders and, yes, it was boring. The only thing that was fun was the supporting cast meeting each other, and that really wore off its novelty soon.

I curse Daredevil S2 for ruining ninja's for me, and for making Elektra such a bore. Also, most of the cast was squandered here, and I resent that this was basically Daredevil S3. This is a series that culminates with a fight against an army of ninjas deep down Manhattan among the corpse of a dragon - sounds so cool in paper, but I was just watching the clock to see how much I had to endure until the series ended. And the blame is squarely in the writers, who didn't have the imagination or budget (or both) to properly use their superpowered cast. Heck, Luke Cage's big idea for surprising the bad guys in the last episode was awful, and something I'd expect from a first year high school play.

The only two good things that happened here are a) Misty Knight will finally have a excuse to get that robot arm and b) Sigourney Weaver will be able to make the next payment for her winter mansion. Bonus: I won't have to stand Stick anymore, unless *groan* the Hand resurrects him.
