    Thanos being a farmer has got to be only for entertainment, right...?

    Surely a guy who's already a Titan and now has the Infinity Gauntlet doesn't need to eat, right?

    Seems it is now official. The Marvel Studios Twitter account should have something tomorrow like a thank you tweet to the fans.

    I mean yeah maybe your method is not precise but pretending inflation doesn't exist and using a list that ignores it is as far from that as it can be.

    TFA did rather domestically I see. Tough to beat that one. But it could beat it worldwide.

    I didn't personally find it that amazing because 1. I'm not black, 2. I'm not any other minority either, and 3. Sweden doesn't have a history of racial tensions since before this century we were basically ethnically homogenous.

    Of course I can shrug and say "ok, first black superhero, good for you!" Even though that was actually Spawn back in 1997. But I don't have any particular emotional reaction to it since I'm not the one finally getting represented.

    It was a good enough movie but IMO not better than Infinity Way by any measure.

    One can not deny that the 'black' factor did play huge role in Black Panther's success.
    Black community religiously went to watch movie so it's domestic gross is understandable given racial tension.
    Black Panther had that advantage over IW.

    Yeah I know how you feel, I prefer IW too.

    But BP is a social phenomenum, and I appreciate those when I see them.

    BP wasn't amazing at all. It's just a Lion King remake.

    But there is a lot of black people in the States. And they are having orgasm any time anyone mentions BP.

    I thought BP was copied from Naruto, something like Killmonger being the equivalent to Madara Uchiha and the non Wakandans black people being the Uchiha clan. Damn these conflicting ass stories :glue

    Only felt that with Iron Man vs Thanos, with the latter recognizing him and prompting him to give him his best shot etc.

    Well now that you mention it, yes. Only difference being that Madara brought one down as a whole while Thanos appeared to break it down in small asteroids because the just kept coming while Peter was saving the Guardians.

    Thank you, Sherlock.

    Anyway.

    Both movies are about a cat
    Brother kills brother
    Africa
    Sacred ritual
    Elder has some sacred juice which he gives to the to be king and everyone cheers him
    Everybody supports the to be king but there are people who will later try and kill him
    Everything that light touches is ours
    Family member wants the throne
    Main character falls of the cliff and everybody thinks he is dead
    New king has a speech that divides the Kingdom
    He burns everything down
    He is an abusive leader but the folks who are loyal to the kingdom stay with him cause thats what they need to do
    Former king finds sanctuary in wild and blames himself for letting down father
    Love interest finds him in the wild
    He also has a spirit meeting with his dead father
    He is then motivated and comes home to fight
    He is outnumbered so he challenges the new king to one on one
    New king refuses
    Battle starts and the women warriors jump in to help
    A primate joins the fight and evens the battle
    Former and new king fight one on one
    Former king gives new king a lot of chances to surrender
    Evil new king falls down the cliff but is not by the hand of the good king so he can still remain pure
    Good king gets the kingdom and finally kisses the girl

    Literally the same movie. Common.

    CGI was afwul. Like the best thing they did was stopping the fucking car.

    It is earning money cause it's praising black people and they are having orgasms over it.

    Every black dude into superheroes on the internet was/is doing that x arm Wakanda forever thing. Like, chill, dudes.
