One of the highlights of “Captain America: Civil War” is headlining his own adventure, and it looks bonkers. The teaser for Black Panther, a substantially better representation of the project than the poster, features vivid imagery, an intriguing tribal-versus-modern setting plus just enough information about a conflict that can affect more than T’Challa’s (Chadwick Boseman, “42”) world and identity. Should the film be a success — and it has all the markings of one so far — the film landscape will change dramatically for African-American creative forces — an event that would be as significant as the spotlighting of superheroines, women-led movies and women filmmakers by “Wonder Woman.”
Check out the teaser courtesy of Marvel Studios. All hail!
Black Panther stars Chadwick Boseman, Michael B. Jordan, Lupita Nyong’o, Danai Gurira, Martin Freeman, Daniel Kaluuya, Angela Bassett, Forest Whitaker and Andy Serkis.
Marvel Studios’ Black Panther follows T’Challa who, after the death of his father, the King of Wakanda, returns home to the isolated, technologically advanced African nation to succeed to the throne and take his rightful place as king. But when a powerful old enemy reappears, T’Challa’s mettle as king — and Black Panther — is tested when he is drawn into a formidable conflict that puts the fate of Wakanda and the entire world at risk. Faced with treachery and danger, the young king must rally his allies and release the full power of Black Panther to defeat his foes and secure the safety of his people and their way of life.
Black Panther leaps into UK theaters on February 13, 2018 and US theaters on February 16, 2018.

Movie will probably be as good as the rest of the Marvel library but this trailer ain’t doing it for me.

Wakanda is no third world country. Things are about to go down!

Black Panther: proud ruler of a country by day, punisher of rhino poachers by night. That’s a hero I can support!
