If you’d asked me at the beginning of the Marvel Cinematic Universe whether Nick Fury should get his very own movie, I’d probably have said no. I love Samuel L. Jackson as much as the next guy  —  perhaps even more after hearing his outstanding vocal work in the documentary I Am Not Your Negro  —  but Fury always seemed better on the periphery, a character who pull the strings in the shadows. Still, after seeing how well the Russo Brothers used Jackson in Captain America: The Winter Soldier, I’m willing to change my tune. Maybe a Nick Fury standalone movie wouldn’t be such a bad idea after all.

For all the scope of the Marvel Cinematic Universe so far, we’ve only gotten one fleeting look at the fictional African nation of Wakanda: that one shot at the end of Captain America: Civil War. That place has been pretty shrouded in mystery ever since, but now that we’re getting a Black Panther movie, we’re also getting a deeper look inside the country’s borders. The most recent information comes courtesy of the Doctor Strange digital HD release, which has, among other things, some really beautiful Black Panther concept art.

The Avengers, much like Jason Bourne and James Bond, tend to make grand tours of all the major cities in the world during their movies, and Black Panther will be no different. Not only will the film feature flashbacks to southern California, T’Challa will also make a side trip to Busan, the major port city of South Korea, for a huge chase scene.

Over the last several months, Black Panther has assembled a killer lineup, with names like Forest Whitaker, Sterling K. Brown and Angela Bassett among the recent names joining Chadwick Boseman— as if we weren’t already excited for T’Challa’s first big screen solo outing. Today, director Ryan Coogler and his amazing ensemble of actors officially started production on Black Panther, and Marvel has delivered the first plot synopsis with some new story details.

A lot goes into the design of a logo, especially the design of a logo for a huge superhero blockbuster. Logo and title reveals for upcoming Marvel and Lucasfilm properties and the like are big news, mostly because it’s just fun to use whatever fonts the studio chose to speculate about what that says for the movie. Today, Marvel’s co-president Louis D’Esposito tweeted a photo of one of the chairs on the set of Black Panther, revealing a logo that’s very different from the one we’ve become accustomed to.

After recently re-watching Captain America: Civil War on a cross-country flight, I gotta admit I’m ready for a little bit more screen time for Martin Freeman’s character. Sure, it’s always good to see the Fargo and Sherlock star show up in a fun supporting role, but with Marvel’s penchant for introducing characters at the periphery of films before ramping up their involvement in the franchise, it felt like Freeman’s performance was just a taste of what he could do in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. And thanks to recent rumors from the Black Panther set, it looks like I may get my wish sooner rather than later.

So far the Marvel movies have been pretty light on the flashbacks, especially when it comes to origin stories. The upcoming Black Panther, however, will feature a few flashbacks to T’Challa’s youth as it tells a kind of coming-of-age story. We’ve known for a bit that there would be flashbacks, but now we know some details: at least one of them will feature a 1990s-era AC Transit bus.
