Marvel Studios have revealed a first look poster and teaser trailer for the hugely anticipated movie Black Panther.
The poster depicts Chadwick Boseman dressed in his Black Panther suit sat upon a very futuristic looking throne. In the comics, Black Panther is particularly notable for being the historic first black superhero. The very feel of the poster has Boseman oozing authority and superiority, he certainly is King of his Castle.
The film is directed by Fruitvale Station’s Ryan Coogler from a screenplay by himself and Joe Robert Cole. The film takes place after the events of Captain America: Civil War, which introduced Boseman’s T’Challa. The new King faces off against Michael B. Jordan’s villain Killmonger. Oscar winner Lupita Nyong’o (Nakia) and The Walking Dead’s Danai Gurira (Okoye) are also among the cast, as well as Andy Serkis, reprising his role from Avengers: Age of Ultron as bad guy Ulysses Klaue.
Additional cast members include Danai Gurira (The Walking Dead, upcoming All Eyez on Me), Martin Freeman (The Hobbit trilogy, Sherlock), Daniel Kaluuya (upcoming Get Out, Sicario), with Academy Award nominee Angela Bassett (American Horror Story, London Has Fallen), with Academy Award winner Forest Whitaker (Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, Lee Daniels’ The Butler), and Andy Serkis (Avengers: Age of Ultron, Star Wars: The Force Awakens). Letitia Wright (Urban Hymn, Glasgow Girls), Winston Duke (Person of Interest, Modern Family), Florence Kasumba (Captain America: Civil War, Emerald City), Sterling K. Brown (Whiskey Tango Foxtrot, The People v. O.J. Simpson: American Crime Story) and John Kani (Captain America: Civil War, Coriolanus).
