This movie looks great, i was a lil shaky on how the animation was used. But after watching the videos it looks great and unique. This is a good look. T'Challa Needs to be more involved in Marvel movies, games and comics. I would love to see him come out w/ a movie .

This series was ended way to early. It is without a doubt one of the best animated shows to be made from the house of Marvel.
