Marvel's upcoming blockbuster "Black Panther" gets a new teaser.
If you're looking for an action-packed flick that will warm your heart during the cold months ahead, look no further than the latest extravaganza from Marvel Studios, "Black Panther."
The film, which stars Chadwick Boseman, Lupita Nyong'o, Michael B. Jordan and others, got a new trailer earlier this morning (October 16th) and, by the looks of it, the studio known for churning out eye-popping adventure films should have yet another hit on their hands. The first trailer, which was a little more cryptic in terms of plot details, didn't let you see as much of the action set pieces as this trailer does. It doesn't veer into spoiler territory, but you certainly get a more well-rounded idea of the movie, which is set to drop on February 16th, 2018. Check it out below.
The first trailer for the upcoming release garnered nearly 100 million views in the first 24 hours that it was available online. This follow-up should potentially do even better, as the film looks to break new ground for Marvel, a Hollywood entity that hasn't felt the need to reinvent the wheel since its rise to prominence that began in the early 2000's. Earlier this year, we covered the exclusive report that Entertainment Weekly brought fans from the set, providing a sneak peek at the world of Wakanda, a fictional African nation where Chadwick Boseman’s T’Challa presides over a futuristic society as their king. As per the comic book storyline and the characters that were created by Stan Lee and Jack Kirby, T’Challa’s homeland is home to a large quantity of Vibranium, the material that comprises Captain America’s shield. As a result, those who inhabit Wakanda live a far more technologically advanced life than most of the Western world. Of course, being a king doesn't come without its challenges, and Boseman's character is set up to learn that the hard way.
It's a big step for the superhero movie genre as a whole, with a predominantly black cast heading up what will almost certainly be a big box-office draw for Marvel. One can only hope that it lays the groundwork for future movies it this ilk.
