‘Black Dynamite’ Crew Talk Trilogy of Blaxploitation Films (Next Could Be Horror) + Reveal More Guest Stars for Season 2

'Black Dynamite' Crew Talk Trilogy of Blaxploitation Films (Next Could Be Horror) + Reveal More Guest Stars for Season 2

I enjoyed this New York Comic-Con panel for “Black Dynamite” which took place about a week ago.

The cast and crew were present, clearly enjoying themselves, and they made it fun to watch!

They dropped a few nuggets, including expected guest stars for this new season, including the Godfather himself, Melvin Van Peebles, as well as Samuel L. Jackson.

They also shared that the intention has always been to do 3 different kinds of Blaxploitation movies, with “Black Dynamite” being the first. The next one in the trilogy just might be a 1970’s set horror film, which star Michael Jai White said they were developing. He also compared the “Black Dynamite” posse to the Monty Python comedy group that spawned TV series, films, touring stage shows, albums, books and a stage musical – suggesting that they have somewhat similar plans to expand and diversify the “Black Dynamite” brand.

Season 2 premiered over the weekend. If you missed it, it’s streaming on the Adult Swim website here.
