Marvel has released the first poster for its upcoming Black Panther film, and will release a teaser trailer later tonight (June 9) during Game 4 of the NBA Finals.
The poster shows Chadwick Boseman in his T’Challa role, sitting on the the Wakandan throne – we hope we wil see more of Wakanda when the teaser trailer is released later tonight during the Warriors-Cavaliers NBA Finals Game 4.
A Disney press release offers a plot synopsis for the film:
“Marvel Studios’ “Black Panther” follows T’Challa who, after the death of his father, the King of Wakanda, returns home to the isolated, technologically advanced African nation to succeed to the throne and take his rightful place as king.
“But when a powerful old enemy reappears, T’Challa’s mettle as king—and Black Panther—is tested when he is drawn into a formidable conflict that puts the fate of Wakanda and the entire world at risk. Faced with treachery and danger, the young king must rally his allies and release the full power of Black Panther to defeat his foes and secure the safety of his people and their way of life.”
Black Panther will be released on February 16, 2018.
