Everyone’s raving about Black Panther, which is breaking records at the box office, for being the first inclusive Marvel blockbuster and a damn good one at that. Ahem, I’m still waiting for the Northstar/Iceman/Midnighter/Apollo/Wiccan/Hulkling/any openly queer hero flick. Or just make Star-Lord gay. If he loses his voice in a tragic space accident first.
Hence, audiences being excited to see King T’Challa defend his African nation of Wakanda. So this is what happens when you’ve paid a ticket for a buzzed-about superhero action movie and receive cinematic mulch about two not-even-that-kinky wet noodles and their boring life together. Mashable shows us the reaction of viewers at the Atlantic Station theater in Atlanta, GA this week when the theater effed up and put on Fifty Shades Freed and not Black Panther. That reaction wasn’t mixed. “It’s the opposite movie!,” one astute film-goer shouts. Truth!
Aiight so this happened at Atlantic Station. They played 50 shades instead of black panther pic.twitter.com/5WhvX270Y5
