Black Panther is arriving next year as Marvel Studios’ first solo movie not about a white dude and we’re pretty psyched, now the have released the second trailer.
The second trailer starts to fill in the film’s plot, which sees T’Challa (Chadwick Boseman) – newly crowned king of the fictional, hidden and technologically advanced African nation Wakanda – face off against Michael B Jordan’s villainous and stylish-as-hell exile Erik Killmonger.
Killmonger is teaming up with Ulysses Klaue/Klaw (with Andy Serkis reprising the Avengers: Age of Ultron role) to engage in some dastardly plot which involves, from the look of things, usurping the Wakandan crown. Check out Killmonger’s gold-chased take on the Black Panther costume.
It isn’t just T’Challa/Black Panther who’s getting in on the action – his bodyguard Okoye (The Walking Dead’s Danai Gurira) and sister Shuri (Letitia Wright) are by his side. In the comics, Shuri has also served as Black Panther and queen, so she’s definitely one to keep an eye on.
