An all-new Christmas Day Black Panther Television Spot that brings T’Challa’s (Chadwick Boseman) role as King into the spotlight has been released by Marvel Studios.
The 30-second Black Panther TV spot showcases T’Challa take on his late father T’Chaka’s (Captain America: Civil War) throne. The teaser trailer also shows Black Panther’s rivalry with the villain – Michael B. Jordan’s character Erik Killmonger (Michael B. Jordan).
Talking about Killmonger’s perception on Wakanda, executive producer Nate Moore said, “I think Killmonger has his own opinion on how Wakanda has been run and should run, and what I think Michael brings to the table is sort of a charming antagonist, who doesn’t agree with how T’Challa is running things, frankly. I think that puts T’Challa in a difficult situation. Killmonger is a voice of a different side of Wakanda.”
Rather than narrating the origin story of the lead hero, Black Panther will narrate the story of T’Challa as the King of Wakanda as he is already a hero among the audience.
A short 30-second action-packed short footage featuring Wakanda’s protector coming out and introducing the world to his legend was released last month.
The 18th film to be released under the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Black Panther will hit the theaters on February 9, 2018.
Black Panther star-cast includes Chadwick Boseman as T’Challa/Black Panther, Andy Serkis as Ulysses Klaue, Lupita Nyong’o as Nakia, Michael B. Jordan as Erik Killmonger, Martin Freeman as Everett K. Ross, Daniel Kaluuya as W’Kabi, Danai Gurira as Okoye, Letitia Wright as Shuri, Forest Whitaker as Zuri, John Kani as King T’Chaka, Angela Bassett as Ramonda, Winston Duke as M’Baku, Florence Kasumba as Ayo, and Sterling K. Brown as N’Jobu.
Black Panther – Story Synopsis
Black Panther narrates the story of T’Challa who returns to home in Wakanda, Africa to take his father’s place as King. The Wakanda that the audience gets to see is isolated and technologically advanced. An old enemy who reappears tests T’Challa’s mettle as King and is drawn into a conflict that puts not only the fate of Wakanda but also the entire world at risk.
