Last night during halftime of the nail biting College Football Playoffs national championship game, fans were treated to a new trailer for Marvel Studios’ “Black Panther.” The spot, titled ‘Rise,’ focuses on T’Challa who rose to be King of Wakanda in the events of “Captain America: Civil War” as he faces new conflict from within and without his secretive, technologically advanced African nation.
The spot features a soundtrack from Kendrick Lamar, who also performed at halftime. Lamar is producing the soundtrack for the film:
There were definitely so new scenes in this trailer. It likely includes some flashbacks to T’Challa’s training. We see T’Challa and Shuri do a traditional Wakandan greeting when they see one another and then reveal a sense of humor. We also see some additional dialogue from scenes we’ve already seen a bit of.
The action shots in this trailer are both gorgeous and impressive. The visuals are right from the super hero film of our dreams. How about you?

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.

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.
