These are the secrets behind Black Panther’s bonus post-credits scenesWakanda just made the entire Marvel Universe interesting again. Going into Black Panther and not knowing too many details about this particular superhero, who I largely ignored in Civil War, I did not expect the movie to be so revolutionary for the Marvel Universe. Without spoiling anything — go watch Black Panther as soon as you can because it’s that good — I can tell you that Wakanda is a game-changer for humanity, and will completely alter the way the Avengers defend the planet. That said, I’m about to spoil the post-credits scenes you’ll see at the end, and reveal all the secrets. So close this window right now if you haven’t already seen Disney’s blockbuster. The first scene pops up rather quickly once the credits begin rolling. In it, we have King T’Challa coming out at the United Nations. That’s where he tells the world what Wakanda really is, and what it can do for the world. And Wakanda just happens to be the most sophisticated country on Marvel’s Earth when it comes to technology. It's beyond even Tony Stark’s wildest dreams, and he’s the tech guru on the planet. But Wakanda has been a secret place for years, and nobody really knew what it hides. This first credits scene was supposed to be part of the first Avengers: Infinity War film that launches in May, but Black Panther co-writer Joe Robert Cole told io9 they decided to move it. If the scene looks familiar that’s because it mimics Iron Man’s own press conference from the first movie. It turns out, co-writer and director Ryan Coogler is a real fan of that flick. “I saw Iron Man the first day it opened,” he said. “I was at film school the day it came out. I was in Los Angeles. Iron Man is the first movie I saw at the Arclight, which is like my favorite theater in Los Angeles. What I thought was great about Iron Man, which [Marvel does] a great job of in their movies, is that it feels like it’s happening in our world even though it’s not. Los Angeles looks like Los Angeles. Iron Man flies around and it feels like he lives in New York. The Iron Man press conference looks like our press conference. It feels tactile. I wanted to do that with Wakanda.” The second scene is a bit more complex. We’ve got the Winter Soldier resting in Wakanda. Apparently, T’Challa’s sister Shuri, who appears to be the Tony Stark of this country, was able to use technology to heal his mind. He’s Bucky again, but the children in the scene don’t call him by that name. Instead, they refer to him as White Wolf. Now, White Wolf is a white man who was raised in Wakanda as T’Challa’s brother after he and his family crashed near Wakanda. io9 explains that White Wolf was an “amoral, Machiavellian spy and enforcer and long had an antagonistic relationship with T’Challa.” Does that mean Bucky will replace White Wolf? We have no idea. “We did that [scene] in reshoots,” Cole told io9. “But we always had conversations about what that final end scene could be and that version of that. We talked about different things and that was one of things we talked about.”

HBO just dropped a new trailer for ‘Silicon Valley’ season 5After a lengthy hiatus, HBO's hit show Silicon Valley is poised to make its illustrious return to television on March 25. Since its debut a few years ago, Silicon Valley has won innumerable awards for its comical look at start-up culture. Bolstered by an all-star cast, it's fair to say that Silicon Valley has some of the sharpest writing you'll find on TV today. With the show's fifth season now right around the corner, HBO earlier today released a brand new trailer to help generate some excitement for the upcoming season. Before tackling the trailer itself, it's worth noting that T.J. Miller -- who plays Erlich Bachman -- will not be on the show this season. To be clear, Miller wasn't fired. On the contrary, he left on his own accord so that he could spend more of his energy devoted to other comedic pursuits, such as his stand-up career. That being the case, it will be interesting to see how the fifth season of Silicon Valley shakes out without the participation of one of its more beloved characters. The trailer can be seen below. https://youtu.be/3cZFPRrRN_g The trailer, predictably, isn't all that revealing, but we do see that Richard, played brilliantly by Thomas Middleditch, is still dead serious about creating a decentralized internet. Interestingly, series creator Mike Judge explained the origin behind this particular plot point in an interview a few months back. "The science is pretty solid," Judge told EW this past June. "We try to vet it through a lot of different people. A lot of times there’s an explanation that may take more explaining than we care to do in dialogue with the characters... But given that the compression algorithm is fictitious but supposedly somebody could [create this] — everything else is solid. And there are people working on this decentralized version of the internet, so that is something that is happening."
