At the press event a few weeks ago heralding Civil War , Marvel Studios exec Kevin Feige talked Black Panther. "(Directors) Joe and Anthony Russo and our screenwriters thought it would be very valuable to have somebody that was (new) and wasn't quite as invested (in the conflict)," Feige said.

PISCATAWAY, N.J. - The Camden locker room was dead quiet. It was similar to the scene after a tough loss but far from it, too. This wasn't just any tough loss. Camden sat knowing it had just dropped its fourth straight NJSIAA title game, the third in that streak at the Group 2 level. On Sunday, it was West Side High School that captured its first Group 2 championship, 85-83, at the Rutgers Athletic Center. The loss sent the Panthers back to that familiar yet dismal place.

"OK ladies now let's get in formation . . . " And with that, Beyonce's controversial performance at Super Bowl 50 outside San Francisco was underway as she and her backup dancers marched onto the field at halftime in black leather jackets and ankle boots. The dancers had black berets pulled down over billowy afros, a signature look of the Black Panthers, as they, well, stood in formation.
