Black Pan­ther

The Star Malaysia - Star2 - - Living -

THE Black Pan­ther trailer just de­mands your at­ten­tion, doesn’t it? The Marvel Stu­dios up­com­ing film is set in a (se­cret) tech­no­log­i­cally-ad­vanced African na­tion named Wakanda where ships fly. The na­tion is also in pos­ses­sion of ad­vanced weapons thanks to the me­te­oric ore vi­bra­nium. But as glimpsed in the trailer, the story also ex­plores a man’s strengths and flaws at his most an­i­mal­is­tic level. Prince T’Challa (aka Black Pan­ther, por­trayed by Chad­wick Bose­man) was first seen in Cap­tain Amer­ica: Civil War when he teamed up with Iron Man in the civil war, in his quest to avenge his fa­ther’s death. In this film, T’Challa re­turns home to Wakanda to take his right­ful place as king. But when a pow­er­ful old en­emy – that would be Erik Kill­mon­ger (Michael B. Jor­dan) – reap­pears, T’Challa’s roles as king and the Black Pan­ther are truly tested. Long live the chief! Ryan Coogler di­rects with an im­pres­sive cast that in­cludes Lupita Ny­ong’o, Danai Gurira, Martin Free­man, Daniel Kalu­uya, Leti­tia Wright, Win­ston Duke, An­gela Bas­sett, For­est Whi­taker and Andy Serkis. – Mumtaj Begum

You can park your space­ship any­where when you are king. — Pho­tos: Marvel Stu­dios

‘Dude, you think you’re Cap­tain Amer­ica with that shield?’

It’s just a cat thing, that ex­tra­or­di­nary grav­ity-de­fy­ing abil­ity to al­ways land on your feet.

With arms like that, we’re pretty sure these ladies sub­scribe to Michelle Obama’s work­out rou­tine.
