Trailer For Marvel’s ‘Black Panther’ Is Out And It’s Jaw-Droppingly Epic!

The latest Marvel universe hero to be brought to screens is Black Panther with an epic teaser trailer being broadcast during the NBA finals delighting fans old and new.

The Marvel universe character of Black Panther is a rank of office, chief of the Wakandan Panther Clan. As chief, the Panther is entitled to eat a special Heart-Shaped Herb which, in addition to his mystical connection with the Wakandan Panther God, grants him superhumanly acute senses, enhanced strength, speed, agility, stamina, durability, healing, and reflexes.

Black Panther appeared at the end of Captain America: Civil War. He was included in a team, formed by Iron Man, to track down the Avengers who had gone rogue.  The plot of the movie sees Black Panther returning home to the isolated technologically advanced nation of Wakanda to take his place as the king. When an old enemy reappears, Black Panther is tested as he is drawn into a conflict which puts Wakanda and the entire world at risk.

The cast includes: Chadwick Boseman as Black Panther, Michael B. Jordan as Erik Killmonger, Lupita Nyong’o as Nakia, Danai Gurira as Okoye, Martin Freeman as Everett K. Ross, Daniel Kaluuya as W’Kabi, Angela Bassett as Ramonda, Forest Whitaker as Zuri and Andy Serkis as Ulysses Klaue. The road leading up to this film has been bumpy, Wesley Snipes announced his intention to make a Black Panther movie way back in 1992.

Columbia pictures and Marvel’s Stan Lee were on board the project. However the film was scrapped in 1996 as Stan Lee was not pleased with the script. Marvel Studios announced around 2006 that Black Panther was still on the cards and was definitely going to be part of its schedule, it was just a case of when the project would go ahead. That long wait is over.

Ryan Coogler is directing the Black Panther film and in a recent statement said The Black Panther sees himself as a politician, as a leader in his country. It just so happens that the country is a warrior-based nation where the leaders have to be warriors, as well, so sometimes he has to go fight. Black Panther scheduled for a February 2018 release in the United Kingdom and a February 2018 release in the United States and Canada.
