New 'Black Panther' Photos Spotlight Film's Star-Studded Cast
A spread of unseen photos from the forthcoming Black Panther film has been released.
Courtesy of Entertainment Weekly, the collection comes from photos taken while Black Panther was being filmed and includes shots of the Black Panther himself, Chadwick Boseman, facing off against Erik Killmonger (Michael B. Jordan); Black Panther’s sister Shuri (Letitia Wright) traveling with Nakia and Ramonda (the latter portrayed by Angela Bassett); and a picture of the main cast.
When the Black Panther teaser trailer dropped last month our very own Kevin Clark wrote a frame-by-frame analysis of the video and tying that into the Black Panther comic books. “There are a lot of scenes in Black Panther that made me drop my jaw, but this one was so colorful and impressive that it instantly became one of my top 3 faves,” Clark wrote of one of the scenes. “If you look closely, you can see Zuri (Forrest Whitaker) possibly offering instruction to T’Challa, who seems to be preparing for a challenge. In the comics, the mantle of Black Panther is one that has to be earned and not just passed down in a lineage. This could be where Man-Ape (Winston Duke) makes his first appearance.”
