San Diego Comic Con 2017 is currently underway and with the Marvel Studios panel going down later tonight, millions of fans all over the world are waiting with bated breath to see what the studio has in store for everyone. Before we can get to that, though, we have our first look at a brand new poster for director Ryan Coogler’s upcoming Black Panther.
Twitter user @pairolleth shared an image of the new poster, which can be seen on display at SDCC, and it looks awesome. The poster depicts T’Challa himself, aka the Black Panther, perched atop a large Panther statue (not unlike the one seen in the post-credits scene of Captain America: Civil War), overlooking the incredibly high-tech, almost futuristic city of Wakana. The poster also features the film’s tagline, “Long Live The King.”
You can check out the poster in the tweet below:

Directed by Ryan Coogler, the film stars Chadwick Boseman as T’Challa/Black Panther, Michael B. Jordan as Erik Killmonger, Lupita Nyong’o as Nakia, Danai Gurira as Okoye, Martin Freeman as Everett K. Ross, Daniel Kaluuya as W’Kabi, Angela Bassett as Ramonda, Letitia Wright as Shuri, Forest Whitaker as Zuri, Winston Duke as M’Baku, Florence Kasumba as Ayo, Sterling K. Brown as N’Jobu, Andy Serkis as Ulysses Klaue and John Kani as King T’Chaka.
Black Panther follows T’Challa (Chadwick Boseman) 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.
12 Highlights From The ‘Black Panther’ Teaser Trailer
This past Friday, after previously seeing the first poster for Black Panther, the main event came later that night. While we watched the NBA Finals, hoping to see the Warrior sweep the Cavs (Lebron wasn’t having any of that), fans were treated to the teaser trailer for Marvel’s Black Panther. Shortly afterward, the trailer was released online for everyone’s consumption.
Pretty much for the next 24 hours, the teaser has been endlessly viewed and talked about on social media as well as in person. The trailer was incredibly exciting, fun, fresh, and everything fans of the character have hoped for ever since he was first introduced to the Marvel Cinematic Universe in Captain America: Civil War. We got to see T’challa, the Dora Milaje, and countless other goodies to introduce us to the world of Wakanda. The movie, with a 90% African/African American cast, will be a superhero first and give audiences something completely brand new. Hardcore fans and newbies alike were very excited for what’s in store for the new film, so let’s take a deeper look.
