Alrighty then!! It is the Black Panther trailer which is out now. Marvel’s finally opened up the gates of Wakanda for the fans and they sure are loving it. It’s just been over a year that we saw Boseman playing the righteous T’Challa in Civil War and saw a glimpse of the African nation and its significance in the MCU. It’s been just over a year since audiences got to see Chadwick Boseman in And somewhere in between Black Panther’s adrenaline pumping fights, the emotional aspect of his life, or the slight glimpse of actually how advanced Wakanda is, the fans have been eagerly waiting to see what the standalone flick of T’Challa has ins store for them.
The teaser trailer took absolutely no time in establishing the tone of Marvel’s first film with an African-American lead. The trailer has not only shifted its focus on the new king of Wakanda but also on Wakanda itself. What the country is like, all the secrecy about it, earlier only known to the comic book readers is out in the open now. The progressive scientific look of the city, the vast landscapes, or be it just showing how the Wakandans dress, this is a completely different narrative altogether, which no Marvel film has adopted before.
In the trailer not only is the Black Panther seen in action, but people trying to get into Wakanda for Vibranium, T’Challa taking on the mantle of the king, representing Wakanda at International events as well as his nemesis trying badly to be king can also be witnessed.
It would actually be wrong to call this, just a teaser trailer video with all that it’s shown the fans as it does a lot more than just focusing on the main lead of the film. Be it Martin Freeman’s Everett Ross and Andy Serkis’s Klaue who already have already debuted in past MCU or be it Gurira shown as Okoye, Whitaker as Zuri, Bassett as Ramonda, Jordan as T’Challa’s nemesis Erik Killmonger, Nyong’o as Nakia, Wright as T’Challa’s sister Shuri, Kaluuya as W’Kabi, and Duke as M’Baku, the the teaser trailer deeply focuses on highlighting the supporting cast of the film too.
There sure is still some time in the release of this eagerly awaited flick, but we sure can hope for more glimpses from the film soon at Comic-Con as well as further in the times to come.
