“Ant-Man and the Wasp” is the sequel to 2015's "Ant-Man" and is the new chapter in the Marvel Cinematic Universe featuring heroes with the astonishing ability to shrink.

At the Movies: Black Panther

Mar 8, 2018

"Black Panther" has nearly everything going for it - great cast, fantastic computer-generated imagery, and distinctive and impressive production design - except for a solid screenplay. The movie has been hailed as the first Marvel Cinematic Universe directed by an African American, Ryan Coogler, with an African American cast in lead roles. Chadwick Boseman, an extraordinary actor, is the main reason why "Black Panther" holds together. Michael B. Jordan has equally strong screen presence.
