Marvel Studios unleashes official Black Panther teaser trailer


The official Black Panther teaser trailer makes its debut.

Ever since his debut in Captain America: Civil War (2016), fans have been wanting more Black Panther. The now King of Wakanda pretty much burst into the Marvel Cinematic Universe with that amazing Winter Soldier chase scene. After that, fans were hooked.

Throughout most of the film, T’Challa was out for revenge—blaming the framed Winter Soldier for the death of his father, King T’Chakka. Ultimately, T’Challa discovered that it was Helmut Zemo who masterminded the bombing in order to tear apart the Avengers. However, T’Challa chose the path of justice, sparing Zemo’s life and cementing himself as a wise and merciful leader.

T’Challa would also provide sanctuary for Steve Rogers and Bucky Barnes—with the former exiled from the Avengers. In that mysterious end-scene, fans got a glimpse of the technologically advanced Wakanda.

With Marvel Studios’ debut of Black Panther‘s teaser trailer, we get an even better look at our hero’s home. We also have some returning faces—namely, Ulysses Klaue, who we last saw getting his arm torn off by Ultron in Avengers: Age of Ultron (2015); and Everett K. Ross, a member of the Joint Counter Terrorism Center, who made his debut in Captain America: Civil War.

The film’s voiceover, most likely from T’Chakka, seems to highlight T’Challa’s reluctance to become king—something that was touched upon at the beginning of Captain America: Civil War. The wait for February 2018 will be tough, but at least we some great footage to hold us over.
