From The New Mutants to The Runaways to (FINALLY!) new Jessica Jones episodes, Marvel has a lot of exciting stuff in the works at the moment. Another one of the studio’s most anticipated feature is the upcoming Black Panther movie, and if the first full trailer is any indication, it’s set to be one of 2018’s best super hero flicks.
The initial short teaser gave us just a glimpse of the conflict between T’Challa/Black Panther (Chadwick Boseman) and Erik Killmonger (Michael B. Jordan). In the official trailer, though, we get a more in-depth look at their upcoming battle as Killmonger attempts to dethrone T’Challa as king.
“I waited my entire life for this,” Killmonger says chillingly in the clip. “The world is going to start over. I’m gonna burn it all.”
We also get a good look at the world of Wakanda — including T’Challa’s fierce AF allies, played by Angela Bassett (as his mother), Lupita Nyong’o, and Danai Gurira.
The trailer was met with enthusiasm on Twitter, where many pointed out just how visually stunning — and, yeah, okay, totally epic — the movie looks.
Black Panther was directed and co-written by Ryan Coogler, who previously directed Michael B. Jordan in Creed. The sad news is that it’s not in theaters until February 16, 2018, but there are plenty of rad movies hitting the big screen that you can check out in the meantime.
