The king is dead — long live the new king of Wakanda!
Marvel released a new trailer for "Black Panther" during last night's College Football Championship Game, and much like previous spots, shows T'Challa (Chadwick Boseman) returning to his country after his father's death to take up the crown.
This trailer has a bit more of Michael B. Jordan's Erik Killmonger, who challenges T'Challa for rule over the technologically-advanced Wakanda.
"I want your weapons, your secrets," Erik declares. "It's all mine now."
Like in previous trailers and TV commercials, the footage is stunning. Director Ryan Coogler seems to have crafted a world unlike any other we've seen in Marvel movies.
The movie also stars Lupita Nyong'o, Danai Gurira, Martin Freeman, Daniel Kaluuya, Angela Bassett, Forest Whitaker, and Andy Serkis.
"Black Panther" opens in theaters February 16.
After the death of his father, T'Challa returns home to the African nation of Wakanda to take his rightful place as king. When a powerful enemy suddenly reappears, T'Challa's mettle as king -- and as Black Panther -- gets tested when he's drawn into a 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. Read More
