Marvel's Black Panther looks even better in this new trailer

Marvel's Black Panther looks even better in this new trailer

The trailer received prime-time billing during the half-time of the College Football Playoff National Championship game.

It's clear that Black Panther is unlike any movie we've seen before: the lush Afro-futurism, the majority-black cast, the epic political intrigue. Fans were treated to a new preview from the upcoming Black Panther, Marvel's newest addition to the ever-growing character list in the expanding world of comic book turned real-life heroes.

It's also the first time Lamar will write, produce, perform and curate for a major film release.

One thing one can glean from various Black Panther clips is that the final battle that every superhero movie has is going to occur in a futuristic city downtown.

Starring Chadwick Boseman as T'Challa, Lupita Nyong'o as the spy Nakia, and Michael B. Jordan as Erik Killmonger, Black Panther's nemesis, the film is undoubtedly one of the most anticipated flicks of the year.

"I want your weapons, your secrets", Kilmonger says in the trailer. Black Panther, of course, represents the final Marvel film before Thanos officially comes to town in May. Letitia Wright, who appeared recently in Black Mirror's fourth series' last episode, is playing the sister of T'Challa (Black Panther's real name) and she gives a mocking bow to her brother. I think similar to Captain America: "The Winter Soldier, we're definitely influenced by the films of the '70s and influenced by crime fiction".

"Black Panther" opens Feb. 12 in the UK, Feb. 15 in Australia and Feb. 16 in the US.
