Marvel’s Black Panther: “UN Meet and Greet” Exclusive Deleted Scene (X)
This beautiful smile needs to leave my heart alone.
Why are all the BP deleted scenes the ones that show some real humanity and love between these characters? I want to talk to the editor right now.
NOPE CAN’T HAVE THAT IT’S ALL ABOUT THE PLOT MAN
Honestly studios these days are too afraid to make their movies too long so they end up cutting out a lot of humanity to make room for action scenes and plot furtherance forgetting that establishing who these characters are helps us care more about the plot.
THIS LAST POINT IS EVERYTHING.
why have nice character moments when you can have a big stupid pointless marvel climax battle for 30 minutes at the end
……Everyone cooled on Black Panther fast, huh?
Wait, you thought there weren’t any scenes in the movie that showed humanity and love between characters? What movie were you watching?
Because my god, every scene with the ancestors, or Okoye grappling with love and duty, or Shuri ribbing the shit out of T’Challa, or every interaction between M’Baku and T’Challa on the meaning of leadership and dedication to the people–and whether there was a duty to all people or just Wakandans. Or every fucking interaction between Nakia and T’Challa, for that matter?
But no, the scene that we needed to leave in was a white boy being praised for a genuinely meant but nevertheless incompetent gesture, because At Least He Tried. Because that’s the key scene that demonstrates humanity and love.
The fuck. I know y’all love Martin Freeman but frankly what the actual fuck, guys?
That isn’t to say it’s not a good scene–it is!–but it’s also totally a cuttable scene, because it doesn’t actually contribute much about either Freeman’s character or the relationships between the other three that isn’t already adequately shown in other scenes of the movie.
