Di­rec­tor Ryan Coogler star­ring Chad­wick Bose­man, Lupita Ny­ong’o, Danai Gurira, Michael B. Jor­dan, Andy Serkis, Martin Free­man eta 16 Fe­bru­ary 2018

Some of the big­gest cheers of Comic-Con 2017 were re­served for Black Pan­ther, one of the MCU’s new­est re­cruits. TF caught a glimpse of one se­quence in which T’Challa (Chad­wick Bose­man), Okoye (Danai Gurira) and Nakia (Lupita Ny­ong’o) scope out a casino where a dodgy deal is go­ing down be­tween Everett Ross (Martin Free­man) and Ulysses Klaue (Andy Serkis). Be­fore Bilbo and Gol­lum have been able to make their trade, a fire­fight breaks out and T’Challa bolts.

A new Comic-Con-ex­clu­sive trailer re­vealed some cool new de­tails, like the fact T’Challa’s Black Pan­ther suit ma­te­ri­alises around him like an even more ad­vanced ver­sion of Tony Stark’s tech, and Michael B. Jor­dan’s vil­lain­ous Erik Kill­mon­ger has his own gold-tinged Pan­ther suit.

As star Chad­wick Bose­man ex­plains, T’Challa/Black Pan­ther is still ad­just­ing to the tragedy we wit­nessed in Civil War. “He’s still mourn­ing his fa­ther’s death,” he says. “It’s a tran­si­tion pe­riod that gets in­ter­rupted, and he’s strug­gling with the type of king he wants to be.” The fic­tional na­tion of Wakanda might be more ad­vanced than MCU lo­ca­tions we’ve seen on screen be­fore, but in di­rec­tor Ryan Coogler’s (Fruit­vale Sta­tion, Creed) hands, ex­pect an ex­tremely re­lat­able story.
