This is interesting news becuase Black Panther is still being shown in theaters. What behind the scenes content could be included as extras? Cut footage? How the language was created? A look at the music?

31:45 – Also in movie news, Entertainment Weekly noted in a recent article that advance ticket sales for Solo: A Star Wars Story have surpassed Black Panther. Could this be a mega-hit despite the controversy? Will it see the success that the Star Trek recasting has?

1:06:45 – Avengers: Loki had harnassed the power of a Celestial, making him a terribly powerful foe. On top of that, Odin himself has given Black Panther the tast of killing The God Of Mischief. With Loki’s future in the MCU now seemingly known, could this be the same in the comic world as well?

1:09:51 – Guardians Of The Galaxy: The Infinity Stones are back! Clever writing? Or marketing ploy? The panel discusses the possibilities.
