The Black Panther Trailer Just Dropped With A Star-Studded Cast

The ‘Black Panther’ Trailer Just Dropped With A Star-Studded Cast

Welcome to Wakanda.

The trailer for “Black Panther” has finally arrived and, by the looks of it, this Marvel world will take us on one helluva ride.

In the nearly two-minute teaser, Chadwick Boseman reprises his role as T’Challa (aka the Black Panther) and returns home as king of Wakanda ― a mysterious, powerful and vividly colorful African world. There, we meet a star-studded cast with Lupita Nyong’o as Nakia, Danai Gurira as Okoye and, T’Challa’s nemesis, Erik Killmonger, played by Michael B. Jordan.

The teaser, which dropped during Game 4 of the NBA finals, opens with Klaw (Andy Serkis) chained to a chair asking Everett K. Ross (Martin Freeman) what he knows about Wakanda. When Ross says that it’s a third world country with “cool outfits,” Klaw reveals Wakanda’s true secret, claiming that he is the only person to have ever seen the country and make it out alive. 

“Explorers have searched for it, called it El Dorado,” Klaw growls. “They looked for it in South America, but it was in Africa the whole time.”

Wakanda, as it appears in the trailer, is a mix of traditional and modern, natural and sleek, and is brimming with waterfalls. Its people are as Ross had suggested — ornate and vibrantly dressed — but they also prove to be as fierce as T’Challa himself.

And, of course, a generous amount of time was used to show the Black Panther’s own super-hero strength and impenetrable armor.

While the trailer is packed with action and fantasy, Boseman’s co-star Sterling K. Brown has said that the film raises “really provocative questions” and is “politically astute” and “socially relevant.” 

It’s not just an action film,” Brown told Entertainment Tonight. “It addresses the climate today of Africans and African-Americans ― across the country and across the world ― in a way that people will really be excited about.”

“Black Panther,” directed by Ryan Coogler and based on the comic book series (for which Ta-Nehisi Coates is currently writing), is due to screen in theaters this February.

This story has been updated to show that Ta-Nehisi Coates is one of many writers contributing to the “Black Panther” series.

  Yup!  Especially for black children.  I don't know what its rated.   But it has the same kind of historic flavor I like when depicting the history of black people.  Children should witnessed a positive aspect of our intellectual culture...they only know the physical and ethical portion.  They need to see that we are innately intelligent with the ability to build nations.  That's important.  Cuz slaves do not build social civilizations that passes generation to generation.  Only the legacy of the royalty of Africans have [in various guises].  This story needs to be told in whatever forum and platform.  We are headed back to era where black people couldn't talk about their rich history.  White people took the credit and it wasn't challenged.  It's starting to happen again.  As why it is important for those black writers, directors, producers to get our story out there on a constant basis before they try to dismantle our truth.  And they are working on it as we speak.  So now is the time.  But!

Black Twitter Fires Back at Accusations of ‘Black Panther’ Poster Being ‘Too Militant’

The excitement for “Black Panther” has been tainted by conservative fragility after some slammed the poster for its similarity to a Huey P. Newton photo.

When Marvel Studios unveiled the promotional image and the teaser trailer for the film Friday, June 10, comparisons between Black Panther Party leader Newton and Chadwick Boseman’s T’Challa alter ego emerged.

Am I the only person who saw the new Black Panther movie poster & immediately thought of Huey P. Newton, co-founder of the Black Panthers?



A lot of people are telling me the poster reflects Black Panther co-founder Huey P. Newton's photo. If so, this is awesome.



Some Trump supporters bashed the comparison, calling the movie “violent.”

Great job Marvel. Nothing like naming a super hero after a violent civil rights group from the 60s and 70s
  Pushing a violent agenda!!

When Marvel released the poster for the new Black Panther film on Friday, fans were quick to point out the similarities to an iconic photo of Huey P. Newton, co-founder of the Black Panther Party.



But Black Twitter quickly shut down such notions.


White critics: "Black Panther is too angry and militant!!!!"

Black people:




Imagine thinking Black Panther is "too black and militant" but American history isn't "too white and racist".
