Rapid Reaction: Marvel’s Black Panther Trailer #2

Every sensible human being is a fan of Marvel…it’s just a fact. How could you not like superheroes? It’s one of the things that keeps us all young. And now, finally, they’ve introduced the baller that is the Black Panther.

T’Challa (played by Chadwick Boseman) hails from the hidden futuristic African nation of Wakanda. When T’Challa was introduced in Captain America: Civil War, we saw his father, T’Chaka murdered. From this trailer, it’s easy to see that this is going to be all about T’Challa coming into his own as the new King of Wakanda.

Now, to the trailer. The first thing that pops out, is the star-studded cast. It’s led by Chadwick Boseman and Michael B. Jordan, but also features the likes of Lupita Nyong’o, Danai Gurira, Martin Freeman and Andy Serkis. There are also more minor characters with big-time names, but I’m only focusing on the ones we saw in the trailer. And what’s almost more impressive than the acting bill, is the fictional nation of Wakanda. This place is like futuristic world meets Disney wonderland, and it’s so well hidden because it’s the only place on Earth that you can find Vibranium, which is the mineral that makes up the Black Panther’s super-suit and Captain America’s shield. All in all, Wakanda seems like the perfect place. Who would want to screw a place like this up? Apparently, Erik Killmonger and Ulysses Klaue, otherwise known as Klaw.

We were introduced to the psycho, Klaw (played by Andy Serkis) in the first trailer, so I’ll focus more on Erik Killmonger (played by Michael B. Jordan.) Killmonger is a native Wakadan that has been turned by Klaw, but it really seems like he is an emo brat that didn’t get his way. At one point in the trailer, it seems that Killmonger got his hands on some Vibranium armor of his own and he and T’Challa are about to throw down, which is going to be epic. Every Marvel movie has it’s fair share of action-packed scenes, and it seems that Black Panther is going to keep with the trend. Aside from all of this, probably the coolest part of the whole trailer, was the fact that they snuck in the 1970’s beat poem, “The Revolution Will Not Be Televised,” by Gil Scott-Heron in the voiceover.

I for one, cannot wait to see this movie, which comes out in February of 2018.

*Side note…knowing that Marvel was bought by Disney, doesn’t this trailer give you all the feels of a very popular 90’s Disney film? African King dies, so his son has to become the hero that everyone knows he is, all while some emo guy that doesn’t feel loved tries to steal the crown. Maybe it’s just me?*
