While the God of Thunder might be tearing up the box office currently, the King of Wakanda & his crew are reminding folks that their movie is still right around the corner. Marvel Studios has released a slew of brand new character posters shared through the social media accounts of the film’s actors, the film’s official account & the account of the studio itself.
Black Panther looks to continue a wave of films, that began with Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, that have really changed up the Marvel Cinematic Universe and expanded it and given it a new look that few ever expected.
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.
