A Fan Made Black Panther Film Strikes a Chord

I was able to speak to the star and director of Storms of Carnage: The Black Panther Unleashed for Canada's Digital Journal.  With +14,000 views and climbing, the little fan film hints at the possible demand for a live action Black Panther film. Will Marvel Studios listen?

Philosopher, pop-icon, shaman and story teller - as one of the most influential comic book writers in the market today, Grant Morrison is all of these things.

Marvel's Phase 1 & 2 - A Look Back

With Guardians of the Galaxy setting box office records, Marvel Studios has rightly decided to reminds us all how they made it this far. At the end of the day, Marvel films are taking the best from 75+ years of comic book stories.  With that much material to draw from, you can do great things.  The company's success does go beyond having a deep history to exploit. In the end, Marvel's style differs from DC in an essential manner. While DC offers a pantheon acting as heroes (think Greek gods), Marvel has always been about real people rising to face a challenge.  It is a easier and more accessible story to tell.

Fandom Unleashed: Storms of Carnage: The Black Panther Unleashed

A great fan film based on Marvel's Black Panther.  Over the last decade the quality and scope of films coming from fandom has skyrocketed.  While major corporate owners are quick to stifle any attempt to make money, fan films continue to grow as non-profit exercises.  Many showcase the skills of all involved.  A smart move would be to create some path for these creators to move into producing content license holders.  Top Cow's Talent Hunt competition does this in comics, YouTube can easily do this as well.
