The trailer for “Black Panther” has finally arrived and, by the looks of it, this Marvel world will take us on one helluva ride.
In the nearly two-minute teaser, Chadwick Boseman reprises his role as T’Challa (aka the Black Panther) and returns home as king of Wakanda ― a mysterious, powerful and vividly colorful African world. There, we meet a star-studded cast with Lupita Nyong’o as Nakia, Danai Gurira as Okoye and, T’Challa’s nemesis, Erik Killmonger, played by Michael B. Jordan.
The teaser, which dropped during Game 4 of the NBA finals, opens with Klaw (Andy Serkis) chained to a chair asking Everett K. Ross (Martin Freeman) what he knows about Wakanda. When Ross says that it’s a third world country with “cool outfits,” Klaw reveals Wakanda’s true secret, claiming that he is the only person to have ever seen the country and make it out alive.
In the trailer, a generous amount of time was used to show the Black Panther’s own super-hero strength and impenetrable armour.
