The new TV spot for Marvel’s Black Panther gives us a closer look into Wakanda, and those forces trying to dethrone its new king, T’Challa.
The trailer re-established some information we already knew like T’Challa’s new reign as king, the friendship and partnership he has with his sister, Shuri (Letitia Wright), and the allies he has in Dora Milaje fighters (an army of female “special force” fighters)–specifically Nakia (Lupita Nyong’o) and Okoye (Danai Gurira).
But this trailer also gave us a closer look into the bad guys of the film. Michael B. Jordan plays Erik “Killmonger” Stevens, and Andy Serkis plays Ulysses Klaue. While Killmonger is out to dethrone and murder T’Challa, he finds an unlikely partnership with Klaue, who wants the riches of Wakanda to himself.
The trailer gives us the best look we’ve had to date of Klaue and Killmonger wreaking havoc on Wakanda (and possibly the world as a whole). It also gives us another quick look at Killmonger’s own Black Panther suit.
This has got us even more hyped for Black Panther than we already were. Even better, it manages to do that without revealing too much of the movie. A lot of trailers these days seem to give away most of the story and the movie’s surprises, so it’s great to see a trailer that builds anticipation while also maintaining some mystery around the film.
To learn the secrets behind those mysteries, we’ll have to wait until we can see the movie in theaters.
Black Panther releases on February 16, and tickets are available now.
