A select group of press people are now the envy of Marvel fans around the world. On Monday, April 17, 2017, Marvel Studios hosted this very lucky group and took them on a wondrous tour of their headquarters. Entertainment Weekly was there and they got to see something that will make any moviegoer salivate—one of the first action sequences for Black Panther.

It wasn’t just any action-packed footage. It was a jungle battle that involved Chadwick Boseman’s T’Challa and Lupita Nyong’o’s Nakia. Here is Entertainment Weekly’s description:

"Portraying Nakia, a member of Dora Milaje, the king’s female bodyguards, Oscar winner Lupita Nyong’o gets her hands dirty in a scene where she single-handedly takes down a group of armed assailants in the jungle.In a sequence that also features Boseman getting in on the action choreography, Martin Freeman (playing Everett Ross, who first appeared in Captain America: Civil War) and Andy Serkis (who made his debut as Ulysses Klaue in Avengers: Age of Ultron) trade one-liners. (“Well, you brought quite the entourage, do you have a mixtape coming out?” “Oh yeah, I’ll actually send you link.”)Much of the other footage focuses on the journey that the key players take to Warrior Falls for T’Challa’s coronation as king. Real-life friends Nyong’o and Danai Gurira show off their camaraderie in the sequence, which also includes Forest Whitaker as Zuri."

Black Panther seems to be making some good progress. As the film’s release is less than a year away, we’re sure there will be more exciting details coming out soon.
