Marvel Debuts First ‘Black Panther’ Poster, Trailer Lands Tonight (Photo)
Marvel has debuted the teaser poster for its upcoming superhero movie “Black Panther,” featuring Chadwick Boseman as the title hero. The film comes from “Fruitvale Station” and “Creed” filmmaker Ryan Coogler.
The Disney-owned studio announced Friday that the first trailer will debut during Friday night’s match-up between the Golden State Warriors and Cleveland Cavaliers in the NBA Finals.
In the comics, Black Panther is particularly notable for being the historic first black superhero in mainstream comic books, and the first to have super powers.
Boseman, who debuted the character in “Captain America: Civil War,” appears in the poster sitting regally on a throne in Wakanda, the secretive, advanced African nation that he calls home.
“Thank you, Kim Kardashian, for renting out the Staples Center so Kanye could play basketball with his friends on his birthday. I’m sure Kanye felt like a real NBA player, especially after the game when he went home with a Kardashian.”
