‘Black Panther’ Teaser Trailer: The King of Wakanda Has Arrived

Ever since Black Panther debuted in Civil War alongside Spidey, we’ve been waiting to see him return in his own solo film. Now we don’t have to wait for long as Marvel has released the teaser trailer for the film.

The trailer opens with Everett K. Ross (Martin Freeman) interrogating Ulysses Klaue (Andy Serkis) whom we’ve met in previous Marvel offerings. Klaw is rambling about this secretive place which turns out to be Panther’s homeland: Wakanda. We get a good look at the African country which is a perfect mixture of the beautiful wild and modern technology hidden from the outside world under the garb of a third world nation. We are then re-introduced to our hero who is busy taking on what seems like a group of mercenaries.

As the trailer progresses, we get our first look at a majority of the supporting cast of the film intercut with some cool looking action scenes are colourful scenery. Since this is only a teaser trailer, we have no idea what Klaw is looking for and what is driving the conflict of the film overall.

The film is directed by Ryan Coogler who previously helmed the excellent Creed and Fruitvale Station. The young director was brought on to put his own unique stamp on the character and I’m pretty excited to see how it pays off.

The film also stars Michael B. Jordan, Lupita Nyang’o, Angela Bassett, and Forest Whitaker.

Black Panther is set to release in theatres on February 16th, 2018.

Here’s the synopsis for the film:

After the events of Marvel’s Captain America: Civil War, King T’Challa returns home to the reclusive, technologically advanced African nation of Wakanda to serve as his country’s new leader. However, T’Challa soon finds that he is challenged for the throne from factions within his own country. When two foes conspire to destroy Wakanda, the hero known as Black Panther must team up with C.I.A. agent Everett K. Ross and members of the Dora Milaje, Wakanadan special forces, to prevent Wakanda from being dragged into a world war.
