One of the most anticipated movies of the new year is undoubtedly Marvel’s Black Panther, and with every trailer, fans are just getting more and more excited. A new international trailer gives us a little more that we haven’t seen before…
“The King of Wakanda is here.”
What’s particularly intriguing about this upcoming instalment of the Marvel Cinematic Universe is the lack of jokes and madness, which seems almost jarring after a year where we got the light-hearted humour of Guardians of the Galaxy Vol.2 and the wonderful insanity of Thor: Ragnarok, two of the funniest films in the MCU. Black Panther is altogether more serious, trading the jovial technicolour of the previous films, for a darker, more stylish turn.
The brief synopsis for the film reads: “T’Challa, 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.”
Black Panther is set for release on February 16th.
