Wakanda Forever!

Only the finest superhero action figure photographs come from the Super-Duper Toy Box. I would kill a man for that Okoye Build-A-Figure. Who ever thought that of all the characters they have subjected to that stupid concept, my GENERAL would be among them?

It's no secret that I am a true son of Wakanda. If they would allow it, I would have duel Wakandan / Canadian citizenship. What better natural allies ever existed on this planet? Well I used to say the Americans but they done gone and lost their damn minds so forgive me for finding them a bit untrustworthy at the moment.
This Sunday might end in a huge moment in the history of Pop Culture and superhero movies in particular if Black Panther wins best picture. It has a real shot with other movies splitting the vote in a way to that is impossible to predict the outcome. Now as usual THE MAN will no doubt steal the statuette from the movie with the darkest hue this year to not put too fine a point on this.
Regardless, the Cave of Cool knows the best movie of 2018 was one of few to give me hope that a better future could exist for all of us if we can just fix a little of our own bullshit in our own lives and contribute to a better world for all
Is that a lot to expect from just a silly superhero picture?
No. I will take my inspiration from wherever I can find it and I think that this film can handle the responsibility of all that.

At the very least, Black Panther will win best costume design.

It should. I did a post last year about how each character represented a different real tribe in Africa and that is reflected in the outfits that they wear. Everything was so carefully thought out by putting a Afro Futurism spin on what was already there.
