Marvel's Black Panther isn't anywhere near as dense with jokes as Thor: Ragnarok or Ant-Man, but the movie's carefully-placed gags will make you laugh hard. While much of the film's comedy can be attributed to co-writers Ryan Coogler and Joe Robert Cole, Coogler made a point of reaching out to none other than Donald Glover to look over their script and tweak some jokes to make them a little punchier.

Predicting the future is near impossible -- but that doesn‘t stop us all from having a red hot go. Human beings have been predicting the future since the beginning of history and the results range from the hilarious to the downright uncanny.

One thing all future predictions have in common: they‘re rooted in our current understanding of how the world works. It‘s difficult to escape that mindset. We have no idea how technology will evolve, so our ideas are connected to the technology of today.

Video: Black Panther is now in theatres and set to have a record-breaking opening weekend. As Marvel fans everywhere gear up for a visit to Wakanda, Charles Pulliam-Moore is here to share his spoiler-free thoughts on what makes Black Panther such a great film, and how it's a fantastic sign of what's to come for the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

Black Panther presented director Ryan Coogler and his team with the task of bringing the iconic character to the big screen, but that wasn't the hardest part. The hardest part was creating an entire country, more technologically advanced than anywhere on the planet, based around an indestructible super-metal that doesn't exist in the real world. The process started with a single question.

After winning an Oscar for 12 Years a Slave, actress Lupita Nyong'o had her pick of the litter when it came to acting roles. She could afford to take her time, looking over different parts before agreeing to the one she thought would be best for her career. But when director Ryan Coogler came to her and asked if she wanted to star in his adaptation of Black Panther, she was so eager to join the project that she didn't even pause to read the script first.

"James Bond meets The Godfather." That's how executive producer Nate Moore describes Marvel Studios' latest film, Black Panther. It's not the answer we expected, but it accurately describes a high-tech spy adventure, set in an insular world where warring factions vie for leadership. But, last year on the Atlanta set of the highly anticipated superhero film, we learned there's much, much more going on.

Forest Whitaker is having a good late 2016. He's soon to appear in one of the best films of the year, Arrival, and he'll follow that by playing Saw Gerrera in Rogue One: A Star Wars Story. Now, in addition to that, he's just been cast in Marvel's Black Panther, directed by Ryan Coogler.
