Marvel has released the third trailer for the upcoming Black Panther movie. The build-up for the king of Wakanda to be on the big screen has been massive. The film takes place after the events of Captain America: Civil War as Chadwick Boseman’s T’Challa returns home to Wakanda.
Director Ryan Coogler (Creed) has brought the panels of the comics to life. Every frame shows off the world’s most technologically advanced nation. The trailer also gives some more clips of T’Challa facing off against Erik Kilmonger played by Michael B. Jordan for the throne of Wakanda.
Black Panther follows T’Challa who, after the death of his father, the King of Wakanda, returns home to the isolated, technologically advanced African nation to succeed to the throne and take his rightful place as king. But when a powerful old enemy reappears, T’Challa’s mettle as king—and Black Panther—is tested when he is drawn into a formidable conflict that puts the fate of Wakanda and the entire world at risk. Faced with treachery and danger, the young king must rally his allies and release the full power of Black Panther to defeat his foes and secure the safety of his people and their way of life.
Marvel Studios’ Black Panther opens in U.S. theaters on February 16, 2018.
