But as I was watching it, i couldn't help but think about and appreciate the Dark Knight Trilogy. As good as Black Panther is, there is an overreliance on miraculous metals, impossible technologies, aliens, etc. The Dark Knight Trilogy was grounded and felt real, there were plausible explanations for everything including how he built his suit, the Tumbler, his training, etc., without falling back on the the crutch and suspension of disbelief breaking shortcut and cliche reliance on magic, impossible technologies, aliens, et. al. Even Gotham City felt like a real place as compared to Wakanda which just felt like a fake Disneyworld EPCOT Center amusement park hopeful future country. Oh, and the current DCEU is the same, with too much aliens, magic, impossible technology, and CGI.
Just one man's opinion....
I think BP is a beautifuly made film.. I’m going to see it again at the Bensalem Dolby Cinema, I could tell the visuals and sound would be a better experience than the plain theater with low stereo sound I saw it in..
The Dark Knight trilogy to me is a masterpiece and what every “A” level comic movie should aspire to, but keep in mind, Batman, Superman, Spider-Man are all traditional “A” level characters that are expected to deliver great films, The Dark Knight Trillogy (with is real world feel) is and likely will forever be in a league of its own. Dark Knight was filmed in Chicago as Gotham.. can’t get any more real that that.
Iron Man and the Punisher, are “B” level characters with Iron Man raising to “A” level with Downey’s magnificent roles in the films.
Black Panther, Doctor Strange, Ant Man, and Deadpool are all “C” level characters traditionally.. to see BP get a $200mln budget and show the potential of Marvel’s deep character catalog able to build franchises that continue to fuel the Avengers films, is quite something.
