I don’t go to movies nearly as often as I wish I could, so when I do I try to make it to my nearest Alamo Drafthouse. It’s quite a ways out compared to my local theater, but to actually experience a movie with the Drafthouse’s strict no talking policy, it’s worth it.
For the last several years, Alamo has been selling gorgeous 16 oz. pint glasses in conjunction with the releases of some of the biggest movies of the year such as Star Wars and Batman v. Superman. Naturally, the Marvel Cinematic Universe movies are no exception (I myself have gone out of my way to obtain every Marvel Mondo pint glass since 2016’s Captain America: Civil War).
Francavilla as some may recall is not a complete stranger to the King of Wakanda, having drawn the character while he protect Hell’s Kitchen in Daredevil’s absence during David Liss’ Black Panther: Man Without Fear book.
I personally cannot wait to see the film when it hits screens next month and of course the Black Panther menu specials.
After making a powerful debut in CAPTAIN AMERICA: WINTER SOLDIER, King T’Challa/Black Panther (Chadwick Boseman) returns to the big screen in a powerhouse solo movie. Taking place in the secluded, technologically advanced African nation of Wakanda, BLACK PANTHER sees T’Challa battling the combined forces of exile Erik Killmonger (Michael B. Jordan) and arms dealer Ulysses Klaue (Andy Serkis). With the aid of the CIA and Wakanda’s all-female special forces, T’Challa must battle his new foes for the future of the country – and the world.
