We’ve got a new Black Panther teaser trailer to talk about so let’s get to it, the movie opens February 16, 2018:
Right off the bat, you can definitely see a lot of the style of the Thor: Ragnarok trailer coming into play here but thankfully, not doing it in a way where it’s a downright copy of the Thor trailer.
Andy Serkis and Martin Freeman reprise their roles from Avengers: Age Of Ultron and Captain America: Civil War in the beginning of the trailer as Klaue and Everett Ross and Serkis has a nice fun little role in the beginning of the trailer.
The cast they’ve assembled for this movie, my god, not only do you have Chadwick Boseman as Black Panther but you’ve also got Michael B. Jordan, Lupita Nyong’o, Danai Gurira, Martin Freeman, Daniel Kaluuya, Letitia Wright, Winston Duke, Angela Bassett, Forest Whitaker, and Andy Serkis. This is such a strong cast and you hope to god that they don’t waste such a great cast or hell, the great director they have, Ryan Coogler directing this one.
The trailer itself has nothing too big or groundbreaking about it but it does look really cool, the shots of Black Panther in this are nicely done, the cinematography is done by Rachel Morrison, the same person who did the cinematography for Coogler’s excellent Fruitvale Station as well as my favorite movie of 2015, Dope. The shot at the end where he’s flying over the car turning in the air only to land another car next to it, that is such a great badass shot that could set the tone for the film very nicely.
Something of interest here, the man who played T’Challa’s father in Civil War, John Kani is reprising the role which makes me wonder if that will only be for flashbacks or is this whole movie taking place before the events of Captain America: Civil War even though the synopsis says it’s taking place after Civil War.
Regardless, Black Panther once again looks like another winner for Marvel and even though this teaser trailer doesn’t give us a whole lot to talk about, it has a lot of interesting factors to it that could make it stand out above most of Marvel’s movies and set up an interesting future for the MCU come post Avengers: Infinity War. With that said, this is definitely looking like one of 2018’s must see movies.
