In July 2014, I featured a fan-made short based on the Marvel comic book superhero from Wakanda, titled “Storms of Carnage: The Black Panther Unleashed,” written, directed, and edited by D.A. Jackson, starring Wester Joseph, Jeff Moise, Kieran McGrail, Stacston Carter, and D. Al’Deighmian Jackson.
Even Storm made an appearance towards the end of it.
This was all months before Marvel made the official announcement of a Black Panther movie, with Chadwick Boseman in the starring role.
According to the filmmaker, the short, serving as a kind of origins movie, was made with “only about $50 and a bag of trail mix,” adding that, “we set out to make the best fan film we could imagine. ‘Storms of Carnage’ was the result. We hope you have as much fun watching it as we had making it. And keep an eye out for our upcoming behind the scenes!”
What I didn’t know at the time was that there would be a part 2, which the production team has been hard at work on since last year. And in anticipation of its eventual debut, they’ve been releasing teasers from it, which I’ve embedded below. So check them both out for a glimpse at what’s coming, while you wait for the big screen studio movie, which isn’t scheduled for release until 2018.
The first teaser, which I previously shared, is embedded immediately below; and the second, released just today, follows.
And underneath both of them, if you missed part 1 of “Storms of Carnage: The Black Panther Unleashed,” it’s also embedded below.
Here’s teaser 1:
Here’s the new teaser, released this afternoon:
And here’s part 1 of the series:
