If you watched the 2017 NBA Finals, you probably remember the teaser trailer for the upcoming Marvel film Black Panther, which could end up being the best comic book movie to date (this isn’t just about the African-American connotation; the action seems to be nothing short of top-tier). Now, the first official trailer has been released, and it’s certainly raised the bar. Read the synopsis (via Marvel):
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 boasts one hell of an ensemble cast, including Chadwick Boseman, Michael B. Jordan, Lupita Nyong’o, Forest Whitaker, Angela Bassett, Daniel Kaluuya and more. Ryan Coogler is behind the camera as well.
