Breaking Down Marvel's 'Black Panther' Teaser Trailer Frame-By-Frame
The wait is over, y’all. Let the #BlackPantherSoLit-mania begin!
Hype for Ryan Coogler‘s Black Panther movie for Marvel has reached a feverish pitch as they finally let a loosie go in the form of a teaser trailer. If you’ve been hiding under a rock (or just out of the loop) you should know before going any further that Black Panther is as intense, as phenomenal, as intriguing as you were hoping it would be.
For the film’s leading man, Chadwick Boseman, the chameleon-esque actor reprises his role as the king of the notoriously isolationist nation of Wakanda. The events that transpire take place after Captain America: Civil War, as a powerful old enemy reappears (Andy Serkis as Ulysses Klaue) and draws the royal monarch into a conflict that puts Wakanda and the entire world at risk.
Considered to be a Game of Thrones-esque vibe, Black Panther finds the young king rallying his allies, assembling the formidable Dora Milajé and unleashing the full power of Black Panther to secure the safety of Wakandans and their way of life. The trailer was a high mark for an otherwise mundane Friday night (is anyone really watching the NBA Finals?). While the rest of the Black Panther trailer sets up larger plot elements, we’ve decided to break it down frame-by-frame to hint to what could possibly happen when the film drops on Feb. 18, 2018.
