Fans have been ravenous for another trailer for the “Black Panther” film after seeing the teaser trailer that we posted back in June, and while one didn’t surface during the recent NY Comic Con, it is here now for the film that opens up in 2018. Sit back with the morning coffee and enjoy. Don’t worry I will be back for sure with some editorial closing. Geekdom has never been so serviced as it is right now with so many amazing films hitting us.
Premise: After the events of Captain America: Civil War, King T’Challa returns home to Wakanda but soon finds his sovereignty challenged by factions within his own country. When two enemies conspire to bring down the kingdom, T’Challa must team up, as the Black Panther, with C.I.A. agent Everett K. Ross and members of the Dora Milaje—Wakanda’s special forces—to prevent a world war.

Additionally, Florence Kasumba and John Kani reprise their roles as Ayo and T’Chaka respectively from Captain America: Civil War. Winston Duke is cast as M’Baku/Man-Ape, the leader of a rival Wakandan tribe, while Sterling K. Brown is cast as N’Jobu, a figure from T’Challa’s past, and Letitia Wright is cast as Shuri, T’Challa’s sister and the princess of Wakanda who designs new technology for the country. Wright described her as “an innovative spirit and an innovative mind” who “wants to take Wakanda to a new place… [and] has a great fashion sense”. Wright also felt Shuri was “vibrant” and “refreshing”, and was a good role model for young black girls. Phylicia Rashad and Atandwa Kani have been cast in undisclosed roles.
PiercingMetal Thoughts: Now we are cooking with gas and I am thinking that my February is going to be an exciting one for sure. Growing up I was never the biggest reader of the Black Panther’s adventures but I did like the characters involvement with The Avengers and his appearances in titles like “Marvel Team-Up” and “Marvel Two-In-One”. If you read the films official Wiki entry down below, you will learn that certain aspects have been changed to reflect the times a little more properly and I am pretty okay with them being done. I’m not worried about this film impressing me because I initially feared the “Guardians Of The Galaxy” and that one blew me away. I’m pretty confident that since this film leads us into “Avengers: Infinity War” that there will be connected bonus scenes and that makes the whole thing all the more interesting. What did you think of this one? Chime in down below in the comments.
