Marvel Studios surprised fans with the release of the official trailer for Black Panther.
The Ryan Coogler-directed film is set to hit theaters February 9, yet fans were granted a taste of the epic battle between the Wakanda King T'Challa (Chadwick Boseman) and the potential usurper to the Wakandan throne Erik Killmonger (Michael B. Jordan).
Jordan's physique seems the same after bulking up for the making of the Rocky squeal, Creed. However, Jordan's character, Killmonger, receives a nice upgrade when he dons a suit similar to that of T'Challa.
I mean, look at that transformation.
And that isn't the best clip of the trailer. Maybe it's this one of T'challa dropping from the sky throwing God knows what towards the ground. What about his swag walk toward his kingdom (I imagine he's singingAlready Homein his head during this scene), or of him back flipping safely onto the back of a moving car? He kind of has a thing for jumping onto cars.
I played that tralier from my desk in complete silence and want to go camp outside my local movie house starting today. Only 116 days until Black Panther is released worldwide. The world is officially staring at the clock.
