Black Panther

Black Panther dir. Ryan Coogler (2018) Marvel superhero films tend to be much of a muchness, but Black Panther offers something different through its depiction of the highly advanced—but with a tribal monarchy—(fictional) African nation Wakanda. The characters are written and played with strength and personality.    

Arrow, Season 1

Arrow, Season 1 (2012-2013) Arrow champions a darker strain of superhero vigilantism. The action scenes are stylishly choreographed and filmed, while Oliver Queen’s rather impassive (‘brooding’, in comic book terms) character is given some depth through flashbacks to his torturous five year stint as a castaway.
