Now that Thor: Ragnarok is in theaters (and almost all of you have seen it, presumably), it’s time for Marvel fans to turn their attention to the MCU’s next installment: Black Panther. After a pair of thrilling trailers introduced us to the vibrant (and vibranium-packed) world of Wakanda, the cast of director Ryan Coogler’s upcoming superhero film has unveiled a series of new character posters, and they are quite stunning.
Following yesterday’s reveal of new images from Black Panther, Marvel has unveiled a series of character portraits that offer a closer look at the main characters featured in T’Challa’s solo superhero film. The photos not only show off the heroes and villains of Wakanda, they also highlight the details of their gorgeous costumes, which reflect director Ryan Coogler’s vibrant and exciting new corner of the MCU.
With this past week’s news that Michelle Monaghan has joined the cast of Mission: Impossible 6, we’re now looking at a pretty awesome group of leading ladies for next year’s installment in the Mission: Impossible franchise. The Monaghan casting was both exciting and not particularly surprising; when writer-director Christopher McQuarrie announced a few unexpected returns to the cast for this film, Monaghan’s character seemed the most obvious piece of unfinished business in the film. This franchise has always attempted to build out continuity between films — loose though it may be — and bringing back Ethan Hunt’s ex-wife was the perfect way to add emotional gravitas to the spectacle.
