‘Black Panther’ has the best Marvel supervillain ever. Yes, even better than Loki.

TwitterFacebook

Excited for Black Panther? So are we. Which is why we’re rolling out obsessive coverage with Black Panther Week.

Spoilers ahead for Black Panther.  

Black Panther just pulled off a Marvel Cinematic Universe first: A supervillain worth rooting for. 

Sure, other MCU baddies have been charming (hello, Hela) or surprising (hi, Mandarin) or sympathetic (we see you, Loki). A couple of them have even made good points – Zemo and Vulture’s grievances felt legitimate, even if their methods of rectifying them did not.

But Michael B. Jordan’s Killmonger is all of those things, and something more besides. It’s a truism that every villain sees themselves as the hero in their own story; Killmonger is the first time this has actually felt true in a MCU movie.  Read more…

Apple’s slow iPhone X sales are hurting Samsung too

TwitterFacebook

It’s not just Apple feeling the effects of lackluster iPhone X sales.

Samsung is also now grappling with the same problem. Since Apple relies on the Korean tech giant for the iPhone X’s expensive display panels, it is now searching for a new buyer, according to a report from Nikkei.

This new development follows earlier reports that Apple was cutting production of the iPhone X after slowing sales. 

The problem for Samsung, though, is that it’s proving more difficult than expected to find takers for the leftover OLED display panels originally intended for the iPhone X. Nikkei reports that Samsung had been counting on other smartphone-makers to follow Apple’s lead and start using the more expensive OLED displays. Read more…

God helps those who help themselves, the saying goes. And aid workers, one might add, help themselves quite liberally on those who can’t. The current prostitution scandal involving Oxfam seems […]

Activists are registering voters at ‘Black Panther’ screenings for #WakandaTheVote

TwitterFacebook

It’s rare that blockbuster movies do anything to move culture forward besides make people really annoying on Twitter.

Ben Shapiro rants aside, Black Panther is a lovely exception. Activists Kayla Reed, Jessica Byrd and Rukia Lumumba from the Movement for Black Lives‘ Electoral Justice Project recently launched #WakandaTheVote to help register voters at Black Panther screenings across the country. 

“This weekend we wanted to meet our people in Wakanda,” the activists told Blavity. “We know that for some it’s a superhero world, but we know that the world we deserve is still waiting to be built — and we want to build it! This upcoming spring and November 2018 midterm elections are an important step in building that new world, and we want to take every opportunity to engage our communities in the conversation of electoral justice.” Read more…
