Our best look yet at the most anticipated MCU release of 2018
Opening day for Marvel‘s Black Panther is still a few months out, but excitement for the film has been at fever pitch since the Wakandan guardian and king popped up in the latest Avengers installment.
Gradual and precise, the comic book giant revealed who they’d assembled for the cast (Michael B. Jordan, Lupita Nyong’o, Angela Bassett, Forest Whitaker and, of course, its star, Chadwick Bozeman, as the man/myth himself.) Ryan Coogler is in the director’s chair. Then a teaser arrived and sent this side of the internet into a tailspin of anxiety and anticipation.
Today, the official trailer lands with the force, providing our first in-depth look at the lush world Coogler has built for the beloved comic book franchise, teasing plot points along the way. Black Panther hits theaters nationwide on February 16th, 2018, as the first of three new additions to the MCU. It’ll be followed by Avengers: Infinity War (May 4th) and Ant-Man and The Wasp (July 6th.)
