A new trailer for Marvel Studios’ Black Panther reveals a movie that’s as much science fiction as it is super hero. I’m okay with that. Marvel Cinematic Universe audiences were introduced to T’Challa (aka Black Panther) in Captain America: Civil War. Chadwick Boseman returns as T’Challa, this time in the title role.
Here’s a look at the stunning action-packed trailer for next year’s Black Panther:
The cast for this movie reads like an Oscar Nominee list: Lupita Nyong’o, Martin Freeman, Angela Bassett, Forest Whitaker, and Andy Serkis.
Disney and Marvel Studios also dropped a new poster today:

Marvel Studios’ 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.
