Brace yourself, Marvel dropped the full length trailer for Black Panther and it’s nothing short of spectacular.
Black Panther features a mostly all Black cast
Unlike many other films today, Black Panther did not whitewash its cast. The cast is mostly all Black, comprised of African and African-American actors. Black Panther stars Chadwick Boseman in the title role of T’Challa/Black Panther. Michael B. Jordan, Lupita Nyong’o, Danai Gurira, Martin Freeman, Daniel Kaluuya, Letitia Wright, Winston Duke, Angela Bassett, Forrest Whitaker and Andy Serkis round out the cast.
T’Challa was introduced to the Marvel Cinematic Universe in Captain America: Civil War. In this film, T’Challa returns home to Wakanda as king and finds political unrest. Erik Killmonger (Michael B. Jordan) is a Wakandan exile seeking to overthrow T’Challa and if he succeeds, the consequences will have global effects. "What happens now determines what happens to the rest of the world," T'Challa states in the trailer.
We also got our first look at the movie poster thanks to Boseman. The trailer is action packed and keeps you on the edge of your seat. The Black Panther moves gracefully, jumping from car to car in traffic just like a cat even as his suit materialized onto his body mid-air. We got a small glimpse of the Dora Milaje, Wakanda's all-female Secret Service and Special Forces combo, in action and they look completely badass. The music is a perfect match for the trailer, and as the song states, “the revolution will not be televised.” Why? “The revolution will be live.”
