The ‘Black Panther’ Trailer Will Sink Its Claws Into Your Heart
Summer starts really early next year. In February, Marvel releases Black Panther, their hotly anticipated new hero, into theaters. Chadwick Boseman stars, following his debut as Wakandan king T’Challa in Captain America: Civil War, now back at home and facing major problems of his own. He’ll have to contend with Michael B. Jordan’s Erik Killmonger, and Andy Serkis’ Klaw (who finally shows off his classic comic book sonic weapon this trailer). But don’t count T’Challa out, who looks to have some major weapons upgrades in this film. Also he jumps out of a plane sans parachute like it’s no big thing. Black Panther is cool as hell.
Here’s the official synopsis:
T’Challa, 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.
It’s kind of funny to see Jordan scream “I’mma burn it all!” since he’s the guy who played Johnny Storm in the dreadful Fantastic Four reboot just two years ago. This looks significantly better than that film. (And I mean significantly.)
Good or bad, this film has had some of Marvel’s absolute best trailers. This one has action, intrigue, amazing visuals, cool designs and costumes, and T’Challa leaping in slo-mo from a flipping car onto another car. Black Panther opens in theaters on February 16. Your Valentine’s Day is going to be awesome next year.
