New “Black Panther” Footage Gets Standing Ovation at Comic-Con

So who was happier to see the new Black Panther footage at San Diego Comic-Con, the fans or the cast? The moderator of Marvel’s panel on Saturday, Chris Hardwick, informed the crowd that the stars had just seen the fresh film footage for the first time as well. Director Ryan Coogler introduced the footage, which was for the Comic-Con crowd’s eyes only, following a brief Q&A with a long lineup of cast members, including Chadwick Boseman, Lupita Nyong’o, Danai Gurira, Daniel Kaluuya, Forest Whitaker, and Andy Serkis.  The scene opened in a high-end poker room.  Boseman, Nyong’o, and Gurira’s characters whisper as Serkis arrives to negotiate a deal with Freeman. The scene eventually cuts to a montage set to the tune of Kendrick Lamar’s DNA. Before the footage screened, Coogler expressed his appreciation to the Comic-Con crowd. “I grew up as a young black kid in the Bay Area,” he said. “As I got older I wanted to find a comic book character who looked like I did.” The first character he saw that did that was Black Panther“To be here … is amazing,” Coogler said, adding that he wants the movie to show “someone who got his power from the people around him and his history.” A big thanks to the post production team for choosing EPS-Cineworks for all their post production technical needs!
