Black Panther has had quite the year. He nearly stole the show from Marvel's cinematic heavyweights in CIVIL WAR and was the recipient of an excellent new comic series from writer Ta-Nehisi Coates. But things only seem to be getting busier for the king of Wakanda. Production is ramping up on the BLACK PANTHER stand alone film and if the cast is any indication, it's going to be a doozy. And while the character and his fans are certainly experiencing their moment in the sun, Chadwick Boseman also sees the hardships that come with bringing T'Challa and his world to life. Boseman is no stranger to challenging roles. He has built a career playing real life black icons of the twentieth century including Jackie Robinson, James Brown, and an upcoming turn as Thurgood Marshall, the first black Supreme Court Justice. In an interview at Comic-Con International, Boseman dished about all manner of BLACK PANTHER related things, including how they are finding the right character notes to give to audiences in his first solo adventure, the challenges that face them after giving the character's origin in a larger narrative, and whether or not he would align with his character in the Cap v. Iron Man throwdown.

MARATHON MAN is the Dustin Hoffman of movies. It seemingly doesn't have a lot going on, yet once you start paying attention, you find all these fascinating little nooks and crannies in the stories and characters. It's the sort of mature thriller that Hollywood either doesn't make anymore or viewing audiences have no interest anymore and it rules. Not quite as bombastic as a James Bond movie and not quite as paranoid as a Robert Redford political thriller, MARATHON MAN opts to simmer its story to a boiling point and then end once the pot reaches a boil and spills over a little bit. It's restrained, masterful filmmaking.
