AceShowbiz - The first full trailer for Marvel's first black superhero movie "Black Panther" arrives for viewing pleasure. It gives a better look at the main baddie Erik Killmonger. Played by Michael B. Jordan, he challenges Chadwick Boseman's King T'Challa.
The trailer reveals that the dreadlocked villain gets his own version of Black Panther suit as he is fighting the King for the Wakandan throne. "I waited my entire life for this," he exclaims. "The world is going to start over. I'm gonna burn it all."
The clip additionally shows more glimpses at the King's superpowers. "I have seen Gods fly. I've seen men build weapons that I couldn't even imagine. I've seen aliens drop from the sky. But I have never seen anything like this," Andy Serkis' character says.
Serkis plays an arms dealer and gangster. He allies with Killmonger who emerges from his exile to overthrow the King. Jordan compares the relationship between Killmonger and T-Challa to that of "X-Men" frenemies Professor X and Magneto.
The moviel follows T'Challa who, after the death of his father, returns home to the isolated, technologically advanced African nation to succeed to the throne and take his rightful place as king. When a powerful old enemy reappears, his mettle as king - and Black Panther - is tested as he is drawn into a formidable conflict that puts the fate of Wakanda and the entire world at risk. Faced with treachery and danger, the young king must rally his allies and release the full power of Black Panther to defeat his foes and secure the safety of his people and their way of life.
Directed by Ryan Coogler ("Creed"), the feature film is coming out February 16, 2018 in United States. It's supported by Lupita Nyong'o, Martin Freeman, Angela Bassett and Forest Whitaker among others.
