Fans have been ecstatic about the “Black Panther” movie since last year, and with the release of the teaser trailer, excitement has certainly continued to build.
Marvel Studios released a promo poster Friday, June 9 for the film starring Chadwick Boseman as the title character. Other major Black Hollywood stars appearing in the Ryan Coogler-directed film, which premieres in February, include Lupita Nyong’o, Michael B. Jordan, Angela Bassett, Forest Whitaker and Sterling K. Brown.
Fans eager to see the fictional African nation of Wakanda and its rightful king, T’Challa, — who’s Black Panther’s alter ego — in action are bracing themselves for the teaser trailer airing tonight during Game 4 of the NBA Finals.
