I think this screenshot from the teaser perfectly personifies this movie. He’s fucking here. After his kingly debut in Captain America: Civil War last year I have been so jazzed to see this movie. It doesn’t hurt that the movie is being directed by Ryan Coogler whose other directorial efforts of Fruitvale Station and Creed were both fantastic pieces of storytelling.
So after the reveal of the first official poster for the movie garnered a mixed reaction, the reaction to the teaser on the other hand has been overwhelmingly positive. From the opening where it shows Andy Serkis as Klaue who appeared in Avengers: Age of Ultron being interrogated by Martin Freeman’s Everett Ross who we saw in Civil War. It’s a dark and gritty shot scene where Klaue asks Ross what he knows of Wakanda and Ross replying with it being a third world country which anyone who knows anything about Wakanda from the comics knows how wrong that is. Klaue then reveals that it’s all a front. Stating that he’s the only outsider whose ever seen it and made it out alive.
The teaser transitions into Wakanda and it is beautiful. It shows scenes of Black Panther being a bad ass, as well as his guards played by Lupita Nyong’o and Danai Gurira look to be ready to lay out some beatings. You get a couple of glimpses of Michael B. Jordan as villain Kill Killmonger and a quick glimpse of Winston Duke as Man-Ape.
Look there’s so much in this teaser that just got me so pumped up, from the action to the glimpse of the vibranium jet I am so damn psyched for this movie. It was a little surprising to see this drop since Spider-man Homecoming is coming out in a couple of weeks, as well as Thor Ragnarok in a couple of months and it’s only released a teaser trailer as yet. But Marvel have so many movies in the pipeline I guess it was a matter of time before it got this crowded. It makes me wonder when we might get some first footage of Infinity War. Despite all that though, February cannot come fast enough. I need this movie in my soul.
What did you think of the teaser? Are you looking forward to this movie or are you getting sick of superheroes? Let me know in the comments. Thanks for reading and until next time, take it easy.
