Black Panther: New character posters revealed


A series of Black Panther posters give us a better look at each character.

Black Panther is still seven months away, but we don’t have to wait that long to get a really good look at our hero and the supporting cast. Entertainment Weekly has revealed a series of character posters that give us a very good look at all the players.

As promised by director Ryan Coogler, the film will celebrate our hero’s African heritage and show off the rich culture of the continent. Each character’s costume looks absolutely amazing and I can only imagine what it will look like on the silver screen.

One of the key things to note is T’Challa’s new suit. It’s certainly a change from the one we saw in Captain America: Civil War (2016). Gone are the bands of material that create a wrapped pattern. The new garb is much more comic-accurate (even though the original one looked great). And, if you look closely enough, there are meticulous raised patterns giving the suit a unique texture. Even the helmet has gone through some changes.

As to why he has an updated costume? We’ll just have to wait out those long and difficult seven months. Until then, we have the amazing teaser trailer to hold us over. And when that’s been exhausted, it’ll be just in time for the full trailer.

What do you think? Do you like his new suit? What are your thoughts on the other characters? Let us know in the comments.
