 QUOTE:
NOT AN EVIL TWIN. HE HAS TO FIGHT M'BAKU.

If Marvel clownshoes into debuting an African character named "Man-Ape," I have a feeling it'll come from the television division.

David Miller - I'm not entirely sure you're right. But in any case, they can just call him M'Baku, acolyte of the sacred white gorilla. "Man-Ape" is not required to be used.

Oh God, I'm trying to apply logic to the MCU! WHAT AM I, NUTS??? ;)

The evil twin refers to Killmonger in his “jaguar” suit.

I’m a big fan of the Priest run and remember the storyline where he becomes the Panther, but it’s still another evil twin after IRON MAN, THE INCREDIBLE HULK, and ANT-MAN.

The character of M'Baku is in this film, they just don't call him Man-Ape.

Rather than abandon one of Black Panther’s most famous antagonists, Marvel Studios decided to rescue M’Baku. The character is a hard-bitten, ruthless warrior, but as played by actor Winston Duke (Person of Interest) he also has dignity and strength. Not that this makes him a nice guy

And in a fictional culture where leaders take on the symbols of native animals (like the panther), his tribe’s affinity for the gorilla is regarded as something noble — not cringeworthy.

Still, the filmmakers felt that “Man-Ape” would never be an easy name for newcomers to accept.

“We don’t call him Man-Ape,” executive producer Nate Moore told EW during our set visit. “We do call him M’Baku.”

The problem was self-evident. “Having a black character dress up as an ape, I think there’s a lot of racial implications that don’t sit well, if done wrong,” said Moore. “But the idea that they worship the gorilla gods is interesting because it’s a movie about the Black Panther who, himself, is a sort of deity in his own right.”

In a sort-of spoiler, Winston Duke has revealed that in addition to the BP movie, he is set to make an appearance in INFINITY WAR 
So we know he at least will survive the events in Black Panther.

Wow, it's great they figured it out. I'm genuinely impressed they put some thought into it and figured out a way to still use the character.

That's one of the benefits to hiring some Black people to work behind the camera as well as in front of it.

I've not been this excited to see a movie in quite a while.

The trailer didn't wow me, but I know so little about Black Panther that I can't tell what they're getting right or wrong. In that respect, I can watch it an open mind.

Marvel movies are released so frequently, that I have to give some a miss. I skipped the last Thor and it's likely I'll skip this one too.

I'll be supplanting Peter's missing box office contribution at least 3 times over.

One of the Marvel movies I am most excited about! This and AVENGERS: INFINITY WAR are the two movies I want to see most this year.

This one is a no-brainer for my son & me.  We've seen every Marvel Studios film in the theaters since AGE OF ULTRON, so it's already our little father & son tradition, but he's especially excited for BLACK PANTHER.

This one already feels like it could be a home-run, and arguably the most important Marvel film yet.

I am happy to see that despite all of those people who will stay away
because BLACK PANTHER is a "Black" movie, ticket sells are strong.

Black Panther
had the biggest first day ticket presale of any Marvel movie

From the characters being used, it looks like they are borrowing a lot from the Christopher Priest run, which I loved, and a little bit from the Reginald Hudlin run (mainly T’Challa’s sister, Shuri), which I did not like.

Those people are idiots, frankly. I think the film will be a HUGE success (unless it really isn't any good, but I think it will be fine).

I can not recall ever reading a Black Panther comic. I only had exposure to him by reading the Avengers. So everything will be new for me.

I really like the premise that a perceived 3rd world nation turns out to be far more advanced than any 1st world nation (not counting Shield tech).

I really like that Panther is so self assured and such a highly skilled combatant. One more reason why Black Panther is right up there with Captain America as the best of the best.

Why the exception?

Agreed.
