Marvel Entertainment has released the first trailer for Black Panther, revealing the Afrofuturist awesomeness of Wakanda and introducing a badass cast of characters to join T’Challa (Chadwick Boseman).
Seriously, look at Danai Gurira as Okoye and Lupita Nyong’o as Nakia and tell us that villain Erik Killmonger (Michael B. Jordan) stands any sort of chance.
The official synopsis:
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 comes to theaters February 16, 2018.
