Black Panther


 

Marvel continues with its marketing campaign for the [already] record-breaking Black Panther, releasing a double-dose of new TV spots that showcase new threats, new threads, new gadgets, and one bad-ass entourage.

The first TV spot, titled “Entourage” might only be 30 seconds but features T’Challa attending an international function, escorted by members of the Dora Milaje including Okoye (Danai Gurira) and Nakia (Lupita Nyong’o). The TV spot gives us a glimpse of his sister, Shuri (Letitia Wright), as well as mother Ramonda (Angela Bassett). This spot does a good job of showcasing the spy aspects of the film.

Next up, T’Challa’s new suit gets a spotlight with the “King Of The Avengers” spot. Shuri plays the eager Q to his Bond, showing off her work to him with the promise that, “It’s lighter, it absorbs energy, and it’s got some swag.” The TV spot continues the trend of utilizing Kendrick Lamar‘s upcoming official album for the film.

Speaking of the Dora Milaje, a new featurette was also released by Marvel rounding up the members of Black Panther’s incredible entourage in order to showcase their abilities and fighting prowess. Titled “Warriors Of Wakanda” the video last just over 90 seconds but summarizes the supporting players that are sure to make Black Panther a worthy ensemble piece in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

In the aftermath of recent events in the White House, writer Sara Benincasa (@SaraJBenincasa) took to the microblogging platform to offer journalists three hundred dollars to ask President Trump his opinion on America’s current relationship with the nation of Wakanda.

Just to clarify, so that everything is in Technicolor, Wakanda is a fictional country, created by Stan Lee and Jack Kirby as the home to Black Panther. The country made it’s Marvel debut in Fantastic Four #52 (1966), the same issue Black Panther himself first appeared.

The tweet has since gone viral, trending worldwide. Many users decided to also chip in should a journalist be able to capture the question and answer on video. “If you follow this up with a question (that he answers) about whether Wakandan/American relations are complicated by them granting asylum to the terrorist fugitives James Buchanan Barnes, I will double the offer,” joking about the aftermath of Captain America: Civil War.

Black Panther is set to open in theaters on February 16, 2018.
