IMG_20170609_092400

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.

 

Do we officially have a new “Captain America”

According to this picture we may have a new “Cap”.

Sebastian Stan who plays “Bucky” Barnes aka Winter Soldier posted this pic to his official instagram that shows him with his own version of the famous Captain America shield.

Now there’s has been much speculation as to whether it would be Bucky Barnes or Sam Wilson (Falcon) to pick up the mantle, now this raises even more questions and eyebrows.

However now the other question that must be answered is when will get our 1st In-Action shot of this. Will it be in the Black Panther movie or Avengers:Infinity War

As if the cast that already has been announced wasnt loaded enough this here is definitely putting it over the top. Angela Bassett has joined the cast of Marvel Studios’ Black Panther. She will play Ramonda, the mother of T’Challa, aka Black Panther (Chadwick Boseman) in the Marvel mythology.

The Oscar nominee joins Michael B. Jordan, Forest Whitaker, Lupita Nyong’o, Danai Gurira, Daniel Kaluuya, Winston Duke and Florence Kasumba in the cast. The superhero made his debut in Disney’s Marvel Universe movies this summer in Captain America: Civil War.

In the comic series, Ramonda was the stepmother to T’Challa, whose actual mother died while giving birth to him. Ramonda was thought to have run away, but it was later discovered she had been kidnapped.

Black Panther, directed by Ryan Coogler, hits theaters February 16, 2018. Coogler and Joe Robert Cole are writing the script.

Bassett has been busy in Ryan Murphy’s American Horror Story anthology series (she was Emmy nominated for roles in 2014 and 2015). She also made her directorial debut with Lifetime’s Whitney Houston biopic Whitney last year.

Marvel unveiled the character in “Captain America: Civil War” in May before the standalone film bows on Feb. 16, 2018.

Whitaker will play the role of Zuri, an elder stateman in Wakanda. Kasumba will reprise her “Captain America: Civil War” role as Ayo, a member of the Dora Milaje. Kaluuya will play T’Challa confidant W’Kabi
