BLACK PANTHER Teaser Trailer: "It is Hard for a Good Man to be a King"

Those anticipating the February 2018 release of Ryan Coogler's Black Panther should be happy to see that Marvel has dropped the teaser trailer to the Chadwick Boseman starring super hero flick.

We've become so inundated with this sub-genre of mainstream cinema at this point in time that I won't dispense with much commentary on this one. Except to say when considering Western history and the current cultural and political climate, there is imagery in this trailer that I find to be stunning, indeed powerful, and quite moving. Have a watch for yourself. And if so inclined, comment below.

if the film is as good as this trailer, Disney has another billion dollar film here
February is a curious release date however...

When looking at the logistics of releasing a blockbuster nowadays, the February date makes sense. The entire year is chock full of big budgeted movies. Disney has Wrinkle in Time slated for the beginning of March, while Spielberg's Ready Player One is end of March, then Fox has New Mutants in April. Disney then has both Avengers and Han Solo in May. When you then also consider that Thor has the November 2017 slot with Last Jedi dropping in December, February makes sense. Disney owns us all.

I know nothing about Black Panther, and I've gone off superhero movies, but oh hell yes!

Andrew S MackJune 10, 2017 10:03 AM

And what has been historically a low month for movies leading up to the Oscars, we'll all be begging for some excitement.

I'm a huge Black Panther fan. I can't believe a Black Panther film has been made. If you told me this back in the 80s I would have called you an idiot and a liar. This film looks as good as I anticipated it to be. Oh man, I'm hyped.

A 2nd tier Marvel movie.

The supporting cast looks more interesting than Black Panther. I'm guessing Andy Serkis will be morphing into some kind of creature?

It's lookin mighty spiffy.
Never thought I would see Wakanda on the big screen.

love the Christopher Priest run of the title from the late 90s; but, I still have the design of the villains from the 70s Jungle Action run - esp Killmonger, Venomm, Salamander K'ruel, Man Ape, etc. - embedded in my brain. Going to be a lot of world building and characters with this one. Fingers crossed this works. Trailer looks great.

Likewise. Priest's run was magnificent.

Do the people funding the agenda pieces half ass it on purpose because they know they can just throw down the special interest lobby card of choice and claim that's why people say it sucks when it turns out to suck?
This looks bloody stupid. I feel bad for the actors but I know the weak minded targets these propaganda 'films' go after will give anything a pass so long as it offers up some kickass opps to virtue signal for the ladies and gents and zes and zats and tey and theys...

YojimboJune 10, 2017 8:02 PM

I'm sorry Mr ex president.
Your posting makes even less sense than the current Presidents worst carpal utterances.

Jerry Sk├ÂldJune 11, 2017 4:46 AM

No, and the whole argument sounds pathetic. Go cry under an alt-right rock.

Ard VijnJune 12, 2017 9:22 AM

I suppose seeing left-wing agendas everywhere makes you strong minded?

As a comicbook fan and Black Panther fan I am so glad to see this. Looks like Priest run crossed with Reginald Hudlin's run on character.
Which is a good thing.
