Marvel released some awesome character posters today for the upcoming Black Panther! Although T’Challa was introduced in Captain America: Civil War, this will be a similar release to Guardian’s of the Galaxy in that most movie goers won’t know much about the characters beforehand. I know I am not very familiar. Black Panther was created in 1966 by Jack Kirby and Stan Lee, and has the distinction of being the first black superhero in mainstream American comics.
These posters look fantastic and I’m excited to be fully introduced when the movie releases on Feb 16, 2018.
“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.
