When Marvel is already teasing fans with its most ambitious project Avengers : Infinity War, little can be expected from the studio to match the hype for Infinity War. But, it seems like Marvel is indeed the unstoppable force of our time. With an experimental film on its platter, Marvel has dropped arguably its best trailer till date. Enter Black Panther. If you thought the first trailer was jaw-dropping, say goodbye to your jaw this time.
Black Panther‘s second trailer delves deeper into the hidden country of Wakanda. Giving ample time to major characters, the trailer looks promising for a movie which full of unknown characters…for the normal movie-goers. Veteran fans are surely to be pleased with the arrival of their favourite characters on the silver screen after such a long time.
In Captain America : Civil War, T’Challa aka Black Panther became an instant fan favorite. A calm and stoic character, who prefers laconic dialogues and has absolutely no time for sharing friendlies. But surprisingly, in the second trailer, it’s not the titular character who shines. Remember Fox’s re-iteration of Fant4stic (Fantastic Four)? We hope you don’t. But Michael B. Jordan (Human Torch) who portrays Erik Killmonger steals the show! Starting from his menacing stare to his physique, Killmonger is a force to reckon with.
The trailer also focuses on the important women in Black Panther’s life. Starting from his mother, Ramonda (Angela Bassett), his former lover Nakia (Lupita Nyong’o) and the chief of all-female fighting squad Dora Milaje, Okoye (Danai Gurira), the trailer covers almost everyone, while still managing to be short, exciting and intense.
But, the main aspect of the trailer which stands out from Marvel’s previous trailers is the action sequence. When you add Wakandan technology, a brilliant cast, and Marvel’s grandeur, it’s pretty obvious that you are in for something truly special. With such an exquisite set of characters, we really hope Black Panther becomes the saviour of this world which is ravaged by the evil of racism.
