Who Is The Black Panther?

Deep in the heart of Africa lies Wakanda, an advanced and unconquerable civilization. A family of warrior kings possessing superior speed, strength and agility has governed this mysterious nation as long as time itself. The latest in this famed line is young King T’Challa, the great hero known worldwide as the Black Panther.

Now, outsiders once again threaten to invade and plunder Wakanda. Leading this brutal assault is Klaw, a deadly assassin with the blood of T’Challa’s murdered father on his hands, who brings with him a strong army of super-powered mercenaries. Even with Wakanda’s might and his own superhuman skills, can the Black Panther prevail against this deadly invading force?

From respected filmmaker/producer Reginald Hudlin and legendary comic book artist John Romita, Jr., comes the epic Black Panther story for which comic fans have waited 25 years. Starring Djimon Hounsou (Gladiator, Blood Diamond) and Alfre Woodard (True Blood, Star Trek: First Contact).

1. First, people should be aware that this is not a movie, but an 8 episode mini-series.

2. The animation style is different, somewhere between "normal" animation and a motion comic, but the art is John Romita Jr.'s and is first rate. If you are the sort of person who gets upset that not all animation looks like your favorite "cartoons", this might bother you. If you are the sort of person who can relax and appreciate a unique style for what it is, then do that, and you'll see it is appropriate and really well done.

3. The voice acting is simply STELLAR. This voice talent and direction here is superb. We even get Stan Lee himself voicing a crotchety, loud-mouthed general, and getting it just right.

4. Characters of almost infinite lameness, e.g. Klaw (the guy "made of sound") and Batroc ("the leaper") are re-imagined in interesting and subtle ways, transforming them into both credible threats and working to build a Black Panther mythos.

5. Some people are upset that the Black Panther lays the smack down on Captain America. It *is* clearly emphasized that Cap has just started out (he has the old, pointy shield to prove it) ... and this Black Panther of the WW II era has MUCH more experience. And let's be honest, the Black Panther is in Captain America's weight class (I'd put Wolverine in there too). And do you know a better way to establish a character as a formidable fighter than to show him taking down Captain America (after a hard fight)? And as "generic state department guy" reminds us, the Panther did take out the Fantastic Four, all four of them, in his first appearance (canonically, in the comics).

The Black Panther animated series has quite the difficult run behind it. It was broadcast in Australia and was available for a very short time on iTunes. Finally, it is coming to DVD.

At first glance, the animation takes some getting used to but once you're immersed in the storyline the animation, art, voice acting, and plot of the story are all perfect to complement the story of T'Challa, Marvel's Black Panther. Even though I've seen the series, I'm picking it up on DVD as well because the show needs to be supported. It was high quality, original, and powerful.

If you're in the least bit interested to learn more about the Black Panther, pick up this DVD. It's got a great story spread throughout 6 episodes. It features cameos of a number of other Marvel superheroes and teases a possible sequel at the end that unfortunately doesn't seem likely to be happening any time soon.

Absolutely Fantastic Storyline!!! Unfortunately this is an action comic book instead of the great animation that Marvel has available. But this is the best storyline of all Marvel characters. You get the complete history for the Black Panther and a surprise history on another popular Marvel character. This dvd also acknowledges Wakanda's place in world history. The script is great and it explains plenty and it has good humor also. Several well known Marvel villains are a part of the action. There are also popular celebrities doing the voices such as Djimon Hounsou (Blood Diamonds) as the Black Panther, along with Alfre Woodard, Jill Scott, Stan Lee himself and others. The only reason this dvd does not get 5 stars is because this is not a true animated film and plays in episodes. Although you can select Play All on the dvd. Buy the way, the price is less than $10. It is over 2 hours long.

This was a very pleasant surprise. I read up on the 'Marvel Knights' animation style, and was expecting something very limited. Having watched it, I almost prefer this to typical animation. Technically speaking this style has fewer frames and less-fluid movement, but the quality of the images is superior because this is taking frames from very good comic book artwork as the source. Great textures, tight stylization, very cool.

As someone looking to learn a bit more about this character ahead of the upcoming film, I found the story interesting and dramatic. It it s bit jumpy, due to being a series of short-burst episodes instead of a seamless longer film. That being said, this is quite high-quality for an animated adaption, and the African setting and style (to the music, among other things) which sets it apart from the typical Marvel stuff. Well worth the price.

"Panther power, you can feel it in my arm..." Public Enemy, "Timebomb", 1987

Marvel Comics' first Black Super-Hero returns for the first time in an all-new animated feature DVD. Originally commissioned to air on Black Entertainment Television, unforeseen complications scuttled an American broadcast, but now this eight-part mini-series is finally collected on a single DVD! Based on the works of filmmaker Reginald Hudlin ("House Party", "The Ladies Man") and comic-book artist John Romita, Jr. ("Spider-Man", "Daredevil", "X-Men"). Highly recommended! (see video)

Decided to give this a try and I am so glad I did. I've read several reviews about it, some good, some bad, so I wasn't sure what to expect. I can honestly say that if you go into this without any baggage and with the understanding that it's a "motion comic" and not a full fledged animated movie that helps a lot. I've never been big on motion comics so I actually came into this with pretty low expectations. Having said that, this was probably the best one I've ever seen. It really surprised me. The voice acting and music was very nice also. I did have a few issues with some of the things that happened in it but then again that's true about most of the movies I've seen now a days. In the end it was a fun ride and that's what counts. I give it a thumbs up.
