Join your favourite TransAtlantic podcasting crew: Ian, Liam, and Georgia (Ethan's sitting in an empty virtual spacejet) as we're adapting from silent films to the talkies as we reviewing if not the best Marvel film of 2018, then definitely the most important Marvel film of 2018. the Chadwick Boseman-Ryan Coogler gamechanger, Black Panther.  We're rocking out to Kendrick Lamar in our 148th episode as we discuss:

  • The 26 year journey for this film out of development hell
  • Who the original choice for Black Panther was and the litany of obstacles that got in the way
  • How Andy Serkis impressed us both with his build and his acting muscle in this one
  • Ian gets very frustrated about what he views as a key plothole
  • What prevented M'Baku from using his full persona from the comics
  • There's a lot of talk about mountains and rivers
  • If the film presents itself as a global debate but ends up just being too America-centric
  • Whether or not Black Panther is the Best Film Ever
