The new Black Panther trailer is here and, like the first preview for the movie, it looks like something that fits cleanly into the Marvel mold while also showcasing the unique talents of director Ryan Coogler (Creed). In other words: it looks pretty awesome. And unapologetic about being a Black Panther movie.
The new trailer is light on plot while being heavy on action, style, and a genuine sense of cool. Taking place after the events of Captain America: Civil War, the movie finds T’Challa (Chadwick Boseman) returning to Wakanda following the death of his father and walking straight into a situation torn right out of Game of Thrones. Political maneuvering, coups, and all kinds of opportunities to kick ass arrive.
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. But when a powerful old enemy reappears, T’Challa’s mettle as king—and Black Panther—is tested when he is drawn into a formidable conflict that puts the fate of Wakanda and the entire world at risk. 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.
