With just a little over a week until this year’s San Diego Comic-Con finally kicks off, Entertainment Weekly has revealed the cover for its annual preview issue, featuring the stars of Marvel’s Black Panther.
The covers offers a fresh look at Chadwick Boseman in full costume as the Black Panther, the character he first played in last year’s Captain America: Civil War, flanked by Michael B. Jordan’s villainous Erik Killmonger, and Lupita Nyong’o’s Nakia, a member of the Dora Milaje.
You can check out the cover below.
In addition to the above cover, EW also has a quote from director and co-writer Ryan Coogler, discussing the political themes of the upcoming movie, something that we got a taste of in the recent teaser trailer.
“In this movie, a lot like politics, it’s a little tricky to define who’s [a good guy]. The film very much plays with those concepts, looking at conflicts and different motivations, and who’s with who.”
The film also stars Danai Gurira, Martin Freeman, Daniel Kaluuya, Angela Bassett, Letitia Wright, Winston Duke, Florence Kasumba, Sterling K. Brown, Andy Serkis and John Kan. Here’s the official synopsis:
“Black Panther” follows T’Challa who, after the events of “Captain America: Civil War,” returns home to the isolated, technologically advanced African nation of Wakanda to take his place as King. However, when an old enemy reappears on the radar, T’Challa’s mettle as King and Black Panther is tested when he is drawn into a conflict that puts the entire fate of Wakanda and the world at risk.
Marvel’s Black Panther hits theaters on February 16, 2018. Meanwhile, San Diego Comic-Con 2017 kicks off on July 20th. Stay tuned to Heroic Hollywood for more updates and live coverage from the event.
7 Big Potential Changes For The Marvel Cinematic Universe After ‘Avengers 4’
Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige has officially said he’s holding back on reveals about the Marvel Cinematic Universe until after Avengers 4. With Feige holding information close to the chest, it seems likely big changes are set to hit the MCU soon.
Now that the MCU is more than fifteen films strong, I expect new characters and dramatic team shakeups soon so fans stay invested. There are a lot of things I wish could happen to the MCU, but I’m only talking about things I consider a real possibility here. Yeah, I’d love for the X-Men and the Fantastic Four to join the MCU, but I don’t expect that anytime soon. At the moment, Captain America and Wolverine will never hit the trenches together, but just know that would be number 1 on my list if Fox and Disney had a better relationship.
