Marvel Studios dropped a Christmas gift for Black Panther fans as it unveiled a brand-new 30-second TV spot that focuses on King T'Challa (Chadwick Boseman) facing off against his enemies, Erik Killmonger (Michael B. Jordan) and Ulysses Klaue (Andy Serkis), as he tries to protect the throne of Wakanda.
While the spot doesn't feature too much new footage, we get another closer look as to what could well be the best-looking film in the Marvel Cinematic Universe to date. From the design of Wakanda to the clothes worn by its citizens, director Ryan Coogler further highlights how vibrant and colorful the film will be, even in its sprawling action sequences featuring Wakanda's battle-jets.
Fans are eager to see the next chapter in Black Panther's reign following his introduction by the Russo Brothers in 2016's Captain America: Civil War. Coming this February, it stands as one of the MCU's most-anticipated movies, heightened by the recent Infinity War trailer that showed T'Challa partnering with the likes of Steve Rogers (Chris Evans), Bucky Barnes (Sebastian Stan), Hulk (Mark Ruffalo) and other Avengers, to stem the invasion of Thanos.
Directed by Ryan Coogler from a script he wrote with Joe Robert Cole, Black Panther stars Chadwick Boseman as T’Challa, Michael B. Jordan as Erik Killmonger, Lupita Nyong’o as Nakia, Daniel Kaluuya as W’Kabi, Letitia Wright as Shuri, Danai Gurira as Okoye, Angela Bassett as Ramonda, Martin Freeman as Everett K. Ross, Andy Serkis as Ulysses Klaue, and Forest Whitaker as Zuri. The Marvel Studios film arrives in theaters Feb. 16, 2018.
