Chadwick Boseman’s T’Challa is about to make his trailer debut, and we are ready! Marvel just dropped the first official poster for Ryan Coogler’s forthcoming Black Panther, and it looks absolutely legendary. In the poster, Boseman, clothed in his Black Panther digs, is seated on his throne as the Wakandan King. Quite frankly, it’s giving us Game of Thrones vibes, and we are loving it. If you’re watching Game 4 of the NBA finals tonight, keep your eyes peeled during the commercials because the first teaser trailer will premiere.
Black Panther is set to come roaring into theaters Feb. 16, 2018. The film 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.
Boseman made is film debut last year as Black Panther in Marvel’s Captain America: Civil War.
The film also stars Michael B. Jordan, Lupita Nyong’o, Danai Gurira, Martin Freeman, Daniel Kaluuya, Letitia Wright, Winston Duke, Angela Bassett, Forest Whitaker and Andy Serkis. We’re so ready for this.
