‘Storms of Carnage’ fan film unleashes the Black Panther

While we’ve certainly seen a number of fan films featuring Superman, Judd Dredd and the Bat-family (the Dark Knight, Batgirl, Nightwing, the Gotham villains, etc.), I think this is the first one I’ve seen starring Black Panther.

The brainchild of D.A. Jackson, who wrote, directed and starred, Storms of Carnage: The Black Panther Unleashed is an extremely violent — as “Storms of Carnage” may suggest — “real-world” take on the Marvel character that’s part political/crime thriller, part no-holds-barred martial-arts film. (Seriously, the last half isn’t safe for work, or possibly for the squeamish.)

Although criticism can be aimed at some of the camera work and acting — you’ll wince as the goateed antagonist chews up the scenery — the fight choreography is fairly impressive. And be sure to stick around after the credits for a perhaps-unexpected cameo.

Jackson, who tells The Huffington Post, he’d like to see Marvel Studios “take a chance with a big-screen version of T’Challa,” plans to continue his reimagining with a second installment.
