I have been anticipating Black Panther for many, many months and thankfully my appetite was whet today when Marvel released an official trailer. Watch it below!
A few things stood out to me this go-around:
- Wakanda| We got a few extra shots of the beautiful nation in this official trailer and I can’t wait to explore it more and see all that it has to offer. From the mountains to the waterfalls it’s absolutely breathtaking and like nothing we’ve seen in a Marvel film before.
- Michael B. Jordan| The versatile actor looks incredible as Erik Kilmonger. I was a little surprised to see that his character spoke with no Wakandan accent. From the little I’ve read about Kilmonger, he was exiled from Wakanda at one point so maybe he spent his formative years in the U.S.? I look forward to an explanation (if any).
- The stakes seem really high| I’ll admit that the stakes are always high in a Marvel movie, but Black Panther seems to raise the stakes a tiny bit higher. T’Challa doesn’t get to just be a hero, he also has to be the King of a nation and that comes with a lot of pressure. Protecting his people won’t be easy now that the entire world is potentially finding out about them. I look forward to seeing how the African ruler bears this great responsibility.
Black Panther is undoubtedly going to be a game changer in more ways than one. Now we just have to wait until February 16, 2018 to sink our teeth deeper into the hero’s story.
Is there anything in particular that you look forward to seeing in Black Panther? Tell me all about it in the comments below!
