Amidst the growing anticipation for THOR: RAGNOROK, Marvel has released its second BLACK PANTHER trailer. The fact that this video only clocks in at 2 minutes and 18 seconds proves that the studio still has some secrets in store for Ryan Coogler’s film. Let us take a look at what we can decipher from this trailer.

BLACK PANTHER Trailer: Heavy is the Head

As was the case with the teaser, this BLACK PANTHER trailer shows Chadwick Boseman’s T’Challa as he struggles to maintain the throne of Wakanda. As a young, inexperienced leader, he must learn how to rule a modern nation. The new King will have to learn fast however since it looks like factions are rising in Wakanda to oppose his power. The most direct form of opposition will come from Erik Kilmonger, a Wakandan exile. A central focus of this trailer, Kilmonger, played by CREED and FANTASTIC FOUR’s Michael B. Jordan, will seek the overthrow of T’Challa.  Based off this video, Kilmonger seems to have a drive for vengeance against the Wakandan Royal Family. He declares to T’Challa “I’ve been waiting for this my whole life”.

BLACK PANTHER Teaser: Why You Should Believe The Hype

Kilmonger is a great contrast to T’Challa. Whereas the young King is calm and thoughtful, Kilmonger is headstrong and impetuous. Kilmonger will try to prove T’Challa’s weakness as ruler. If he can prove that T’Challa isn’t the strongest ruler for Wakanda, then the people will turn against him. I believe this is why Kilmonger will challenge T’Challa to a show of strength. A Black-Panther-off if you will.

The threat of globalization is a huge part of this trailer. This threat is personified in Andy Serkis’ Ulysses Klaue. It looks like in order to capture Klaue, T’Challa is going to have to work with the United States’s Everett K. Ross who previously appeared in CAPTAIN AMERICA: CIVIL WAR. The scene where T’Challa chases Klaue’s car through city streets will probably be the first action sequence. As we see Ross and T’Challa are quickly able to capture Klaue.

T’Challa is shown extending his trust to more foreigners like Ross.  Even people with far-reaching intelligence like Ross had no idea of the advanced society in Wakanda. T’Challa wants to remedy his country’s isolation by reaching out to the rest of the world.  His growing connection with the rest of the world especially after his alliance with the Avengers may make  T’Challa unpopular  among his people.

Final Thoughts on BLACK PANTHER Trailer

The shots in the video are gorgeous with amazing visuals of the colorful and advanced world of Wakanda. As a result, every piece of footage from the BLACK PANTHER trailer looks spectacular.  We also got a better look at some of the amazing cast including Angela Basset’s Ramonda and Lupita Nyong’o’s Nakaye. In conclusion, all of this makes BLACK PANTHER my most anticipated superhero movie!
