In all honesty, Marvel's Black Panther is the only superhero movie I just can't wait to see. This is in no way meant to insult the upcoming Justice League or Thor: Ragnarok films, it's just that the Black Panther hits home. He's a true black superhero and a king at that. So I was more than a little excited to wake up to news that the Black Panther trailer is finally here.
The trailer for Ryan Coogler’s film builds on the teaser trailer released in June, giving audiences a better sense of T’Challa’s journey from ambitious upstart to true leader. We see him receiving advice from both his mother (Angela Bassett) and Okoye (Danai Gurira), the head of Wakanda’s all-female special forces team, called the Dora Milaje. It appears that the women of the Dora Milaje have a major role in the film
We also get a look at Lupita N’yongo‘s Nakia and Letitia Wright’s Shuri. We also get to see Michael B. Jordan's portrayal of villain Erik Killmonger, including a look at his super-suit.
Black Panther opens in theaters February 16, 2018 and will lead directly into the events of Avengers: Infinity War.
