Breaking Down That Amazing New BLACK PANTHER Trailer

Breaking Down That Amazing New BLACK PANTHER Trailer

The amazing new Black Panther trailer has us itching to travel to Wakanda, but what can we expect when we get there? We discussed it on today’s Nerdist News Talks Back, along with guessing which Avenger might not survive Infinity War, a weird Sonic the Hedgehog/Hooters promotion in Japan, and laughing at some NFL bloopers.

Host Jessica Chobot welcomed Nerdist News writer Aliza Pearl, and editors Kyle Anderson and Dan Casey on the show, where they kicked things off by sharing their reactions to the latest Black Panther trailer that set the internet on fire. Was there anything non-comic book readers might have missed? Do the film’s villains look bad enough? And how excited are we for Black Panther compared to the rest of the many upcoming Marvel movies?

Speaking of Marvel (minor spoiler warning!), a casting call went out in Georgia for people to play mourners in Avengers 4. We know not everyone will survive the big battle, but which superhero(es) do we expect to bite the big one? Whose death would impact us the most?

They also discussed a strange new promotion out of Japan, which will see Hooters inexplicably teaming up with Sonic the Hedgehog. Uh…why? No, really, why? What does a chili dog have to do with Sonic? Is this the weirdest corporate crossover ever? If not, what is? And are there any unusual promo-pairings we actually want to see?

Finally, because everyone could really use a laugh right now, we enjoyed some NFL bloopers before discussing another inappropriate Harvey Weinstein joke.
