Still weird that Killmonger has an American accent.  I guess he grew up in the US in this continuity, but it's jarring.

I hope a lot of the movie is set in Wakanda, and they keep the Kirby-esque, high sci-fi vibe it seems to have in the trailers. I don't want a practical real-world version of 616 Wakanda, I want lots of insane technology with an African motif.

Also, it would be cool if Klaw got some legit superpowers.

Even in the comics he grew up in the US. He's from Harlem. His parents worked for Klaw which got his family exiled from Wakanda.

Really?  I knew he worked for Klaw, but I thought he grew up in another part of Africa.  Shows what I know.

I think it’s time to ban AP.

 The Killmonger casting sucks ass, but the rest of the movie looks awesome. Looks like yet another Marvel movie whose weak spot is the villain.

Killmonger looks like Jaden Smith with that ridiculous haircut.

He looks like The Weekend if he got in shape.

Elba would’ve made the ideal Killmonger and been a better imposing physical foil

eh I'm ok with Michael B Jordan as Killmonger.

Elba would have been a better Killmonger by leaps and bounds.

I've liked Jordan in whatever I've seen him in. I think Elba would be great as well, but I have no reason to think Jordan won't do a good job as long as the script is good.

I like him too, but just envisioning it in my head Elba would look and be fantastic I think

Y'know...America being America...I had a gut feeling that this movie might stir some controversy...even incite violence.

"I will be in Mississippi when this movie opens. I think I will buy out a theatre in an undeserved community there to ensure that all our brown children can see themselves as a superhero. I will let you know where & when."
-Octavia Spencer


So undeserved white kids don't matter?

Yes, I'm sure that's exactly what she's saying...

Jordan looks nerdy. He looks like a nerd who pumps a lot of iron for action roles, but just doesn't have the genetics to look like a bonafide heavyweight athlete.

Killmonger is a nerd intellectual in the comics. Just like Tchalla.

But not physically. Physically he's a legit big man. To play him correctly, you need someone legit big with a deep yet intelligent voice. Elba has that.

Edit: also, I'd describe them more as "renaissance men" than "nerds", even mentally.

Yeah, but they went younger because coogler and Jordan have a great professional relationship.

Plus word is Jordan is the standout. A villain on par with Loki.

I'm simply pointing out the openness to misinterpretation of her quote is where the controversy may stem from.
