Marvel Studios has released a new trailer for next year’s Black Panther and it looks great. Picking up from his introduction in Captain America: Civil War, Chadwick Boseman returns as T’Challa, the king and protector of Wakanda; an African nations whose technology and culture has been hidden from the rest of the world for decades. But forces both internal and external are marshaling to reveal the true Wakanda and depose T’Challa’s rightful rule of the land. And in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, such conflicts can only be resolved through displays of fighting prowess and chases through city streets. Of course, the political strife could just be a cover. Wakanda holds a great many secrets and it’s always possible one them is the real reason for the sudden instability.
Starring Boseman, Michael B. Jordan, Lupita Nyong’o, Danai Gurira, Martin Freeman, Angela Bassett, Forest Whitaker and Andy Serkis, Black Panther takes its place in the Marvel pantheon on February 16th, 2018.
