First trailer for film on civil rights lawyer and later Supreme Court Justice Thurgood Marshall, starring Chadwick Boseman and directed by Reginald Hudlin
Black Panther is back on the prowl. After a blockbuster introduction in Captain America: Civil War, Marvel’s landmark superhero, played by Chadwick Boseman, is ready to front his own feature — and, based on the new teaser trailer (watch it above), he’s going to have his clawed hands full trying to keep the peace in his homeland of Wakanda while battling the likes of Erik Killmonger (Michael B. Jordan), M’Baku/Man-Ape (Winston Duke), and Ulysses Klaue (Andy Serkis) — villains ripped from the pages of the Panther comics. The 1-minute, 52-second clip, which premiered Friday night during Game 4 of the NBA Finals between the Cleveland Cavaliers and Golden State Warriors, gives us our initial action-packed look at Black Panther, which arrives in theaters on Feb. 16, 2018.
Ryan Coogler, the acclaimed director set to helm Marvel’s upcoming ‘Black Panther’ film, has revealed the project will be his “most personal movie to date”. The film is still a couple of years away from release, but the cast is already shaping up with Michael B Jordan and Lupita Nyong'o signed up to star alongside Chadwick Boseman as the eponymous hero. “I think [the film] is going to be very unique, and still fit into the overall narrative that [Marvel is] establishing,” he said.
When it came to questions about who was fighting on whose side, no one was talking. Not the actors, not the directors, not the writers, not the producers, not the cooks at craft services. But as soon as we left the air-conditioned comforts of Atlanta’s Pinewood Studios offices for an open-air lot baking in the Georgia sun, the dueling factions were there for us to behold firsthand.
