New BLACK PANTHER Featurette – Warriors of Wakanda
Splashers, Marvel has been treating January like the 12 Days of Christmas. Just yesterday they dropped a featurette for Black Panther, and now it’s today and they’re doing it again. You’d think the movie was coming out next month or something. Unlike yesterday’s teaser, this does offer up a bit of information about the characters of Wakanda that a casual fan may not know. It really feels like there’s no way this movie can fail. Wake me up when it’s February 16th.
Marvel Studios’ Black Panther follows T’Challa who, 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. But when a powerful old enemy reappears, T’Challa’s mettle as king—and Black Panther—is tested when he is drawn into a formidable conflict that puts the fate of Wakanda and the entire world at risk. Faced with treachery and danger, the young king must rally his allies and release the full power of Black Panther to defeat his foes and secure the safety of his people and their way of life.
Black Panther stars Chadwick Boseman, Michael B. Jordan, Lupita Nyong’o, Danai Gurira, Martin Freeman, Daniel Kaluuya, Letitia Wright, Winston Duke, with Angela Bassett, with Forest Whitaker, and Andy Serkis.
The film is directed by Ryan Coogler and produced by Kevin Feige with Louis D’Esposito, Victoria Alonso, Nate Moore, Jeffrey Chernov and Stan Lee serving as executive producers. Ryan Coogler & Joe Robert Cole wrote the screenplay.
