“Black Panther” is still one of the top-grossing films of all time, and remains the highest grossing one for a predominantly Black cast. Indeed, the cast of the film was nothing short of amazing with A-list actors like Chadwick Bozeman, Angela Bassett, Forrest Whitaker, Lupita Nyong’o and Michael B. Jordan.

It was leaked last year by Angela’s husband, Courtney B. Vance, that the entire cast would be returning, but now it is being reported that Michael B. Jordan and Winston Duke’s characters, “Killmonger,” and “M’Baku” (Man-Ape) will return as well in “Black Panther 2!”

Yes “Black Panther” was chalked full of amazing characters, especially the women, but it was the aforementioned characters Killmonger and M’Baku who stole the show. Killmonger was a rare of example of the “honorable villain.” (This type of villain is one you empathize with and is fighting for a righteous cause, even if they are going about it the wrong way. Other notable examples would be “X-Men’s” Magneto, “Gargoyles'” Xanatos, and Catman from DC Comics.) Killmonger was a very complex character with a number of issues to impact. His character represented the African-American experience in the context of being African in a global context. Also, it was never confirmed that Killmonger died from the wound he received from T’Challa (Chadwick Bozeman). Even then, the vibranium, technology, and mixture of science and magic in Wakanda could revive or stabilize him.

We are not surprised at M’Baku’s return. He was seen helping the Wakandan Army, Avengers, and their allies take down Thanos’ forces in Avengers: Endgame. The question, however, is in what capacity will he return? As the villain? In the comics, he is Man-Ape a rival and staunch enemy of Black Panther and the Panther Clan. Then there is the fbaive year gap where T’Challa and his sister, Shuri were both wiped from existence. Who ruled Wakanda in his absence? M’Baku would seem to be a natural choice as a member of the Wakandan council at the end of the first film and being the ruler of the Jabari tribe he knows how to govern.

Still, Michael B. Jordan and Winston Duke are both sex symbols and we are always happy to see them on screen. Even if they are only doing cameos we are requesting the former’s chest and the latter’s thighs to be in attendance! What do you guys think of this new “Black Panther 2” news?

“Like A Boss” is definitely going to be one of the funniest and dynamic films of 2020. This cast is stellar, and the film comes off as “Girls Trip” meets “Bad Bosses!” Nevertheless, any film showing women in power and doing it big is a cause for celebration!

Who will be the DCEU’s next Superman? At this moment no one is quite sure. One thing for sure is two major actors may be vying for the part as Henry Cavill as expressed he wants to continue on as the Man of Steel, while it is being reported Michael B. Jordan has pitched a Superman movie to Warner Bros!

“The cape is in the closet,” Cavill said in Mens’ Health’s December cover story. “It’s still mine. I’m not going to sit quietly in the dark as all the stuff is going on. I’ve not given up the role. There’s a lot I have to give for Superman yet. A lot of storytelling to do. A lot of real, true depths to the honest of the character I wasn’t to get into. I want to reflect the comic books. That’s important to me. There’s a lot of justice to be done for Superman. The status is: You’ll see.”

Meanwhile, Michael B. Jordan has his own plans to become the Man of Tomorrow

 On a slightly more official note, Variety says Michael B. Jordan actually had a meeting with the studio earlier this year in which he pitched Warner Bros. on “a vision” for Superman.

Warner Bros. was presumably intrigued by whatever he had to say, but Jordan wouldn’t commit to a big superhero project because filming wouldn’t be able to happen for a few years and he has a bunch of things in the works already. Variety says there are no current Superman projects in development at Warner Bros., so we’ll most likely have to wait until Warner Bros. exhausts all of its other ongoing superhero projects before it considers this Michael B. Jordan movie.

Henry Cavill or Michael B. Jordan are great Supermen and honestly they can both coexist in the DCEU. As you may already know from the comics, there exists a multiverse where each universe has its own Superman. On another Earth, Calvin Ellis exists, he is Kryptonian and Superman (and President of The United States) but resembles a Black human. He is presumably from Vlathos Island, a place where traditionally dark-skinned Kryptonians lived. Thus, the Calvin Ellis version of the character could stand side by side with the traditional one. The two have teamed up before as well in the comics!

Six years after “Frozen” kicked up a pop-culture blizzard, the sequel to Elsa, Anna and Olaf’s adventures snowed-in the box office with an estimated $127 million debut domestically and $350.2 million worldwide, according to studio estimates Sunday.

The opening for the Walt Disney Co.’s “Frozen 2” buried several records. It’s the highest-grossing debut ever for any animated film globally. It marks a new high in the U.S. and Canada for an animated movie released outside of the summer season. And it’s the largest opening for any Walt Disney Animation Studios release.

Disney opted for the week ahead of Thanksgiving to open “Frozen 2,” meaning it will get a significant second week bump from kids out of school. The first “Frozen” opened over Thanksgiving, earning $93 million in five days and $67 million for the three-day weekend.

The original, though, quickly grew into a sensation, remaining in the top 10 at the box office for 17 weeks and ultimately grossing $1.27 billion. Propelled in part by the hit song “Let it Go,” “Frozen” begat a flurry of merchandizing, untold numbers of Elsa dresses and a Broadway musical. It won two Academy Awards, for best animated feature and original song.

Matching that total gross won’t be easy sledding, but “Frozen 2” has a head start. Cathleen Taff, distribution chief for Disney, granted there’s a “high bar” set by “Frozen,” but she’s confident of the film’s enormous appeal.

We have no doubt “Frozen 2” will be an even bigger hit than the original movie. This weekend will definitely prove that as families will pour into theaters with their kids to see the Elsa, Anna, and their friends venture into “The Great Unknown” beyond Arendelle.
