While it’s not a brightly colorful as the new Thor: Ragnarok poster, the new Black Panther poster released in Hall H at San Diego Comic Con is powerful in it’s own right. King T’Challa stands in his Black Panther costume upon the head of a giant panther statue as he look upon the technological & advanced wonderland that is Wakanda.
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.
