Looks awesome! Can't wait for this and Thor.

One minor question about Erik Killmonger a.k.a. Golden Jaguar. Aren't jaguars native to South America? Africa has leopards, wouldn't Golden Leopard be a more fitting moniker?

Not sure what to think of that trailer.

Yes, jaguars are from the Americs and leopards from Africa. I'm not sure Killmonger is meant to be an African character. The actor plays him with an American accent.

Yeah, is he playing him as an American? Cuz from what I gather in the comics, his family was exiled from Wakanda and he grew up in Harlem, NY.

Harlem... I have some family from there, actually. I was glad to see it was given thorough exposure in the Luke Cage show.

But really Michael B Jordan doesn't look like he comes from an African family. He looks African American rather than African. Hollywood does a little too much pretending black people are all the same. It's inches away from the "they all look the same" racist stereotype. Samuel L Jackson gave out about how English actors are cast as African Americans in films with African American racial subject matter. I really noticed it with 12 Years a Slave. That guy came off so English in the lead role. Jackson mentioned how the film Selma gave the role of Martin Luther King to an English actor. Certainly, MLK should have been played by an African American. Similarly, I wish the Black Panther movie had more African actors. Come on, there's lots of actors in Africa. Hollywood should give them a chance. Give us a more authentically African film. The world needs to get to know Africans.

Kind of a bit like British actors being hired to play American superheroes. Ngl, I would have probably rioted if they didn't hire an American to be Captain America.

Yeah, that would have been a bad choice on their part. Steve Rogers is an Irish-American and Chris Evans is American a quarter Irish, so the present setup works. People complain about the present Superman being British a lot, but Superman's a ing alien. And they've cut the "American way" out of him standing for "Truth, justice and the American way."

To be honest, I also don't like Chadwick Boseman all that much anyway. He was ok in 42 and Civil War, but he's a bit too stiff generally. I get the impression he's got Thurgood Marshall all wrong in Marshall. He seems to be Hollywood's go-to guy for black biopics. They got him to play James Brown and he looks nothing like James Brown and comes off nothing like him.

I actually haven't watched Chadwick in too many things, only Civil War and a guest appearance on a few TV shows.

I've only seen him in 42 and Get On Up and he was great in both roles. I can't wait to see him play Black Panther, I can't wait for the movie in general. God it's going to be so good!

Have you not seen Civil War? Because he was in that (as the Black Panther) too.
