Black Panther is ramping up its marketing today with a new poster, and hints of a trailer debut possibly coming this evening.
First, though, the poster. There’s good and there’s bad here, decide for yourself…
T’Challa, the new ruler of the advanced kingdom of Wakanda, must defend his land from being torn apart by enemies from outside and inside the country.
The throne is cool, Chadwick Boseman looks like he’s here to kick some ass. But the whole thing has a weird photoshopped sheen to it, i dunno. It’s a little glossy. But the Black Panther logo/font is solid.
Chadwick Boseman is the star, but this Black Panther movie is loaded with terrific talent: Michael B. Jordan. Lupita Nyong’o. Martin Freeman. Daniel Kaluuya. Angela Bassett. Forrest Whitaker. Andy Serkis. Sterling K. Brown. It’s a staggering collection of awesome. Plus it’s directed by Ryan Coogler, so expect good things when it hits theaters February 16 next year.
And according to the report that came along with this poster, the first trailer will be up tonight during the Finals on ABC.
Stay tuned for updated on the Black Panther trailer today.
