Wakanda’s Black Panther Will Roar
There is still quite a while to go before the release of the Black Panther movie, but these new images are making the wait a bit more difficult. We were graced with the first trailer just over a month ago and fans worldwide collectively lost it. The trailer was so well put together and boy was it colourful!
Check it out here just in case you missed it:
My excitement was already pretty high seeing Black Panther get introduced in Captain America: Civil War. Honestly, I’d be lying if I said he wasn’t my favourite part of the movie. The trailer added to that excitement and now there are images courtesy of Entertainment Weekly to gorge upon.
The cast all look amazing in these photos. However, for me it’s not about the cast, it is about the costumes mainly and the story after! Since watching the teaser trailer I have paused and screenshot so many different parts to get cosplay references. Now I have HD pictures to work from and I couldn’t be happier.
Some of these pictures seem to give more of the story away. Fans of Black Panther would already be familiar with the rivalry between Black Panther (Chadwick Boseman) and Erik Kilmonger ( Michael B Jordan). The photos back this up as a few show them sparring and others show a more tense interaction between the two of them.
The other photos that caught my attention where those with Nakia (Lupita Nyong’o) and Black Panther. In the comics Nakia is one of the Dora Milaje, T’Challas bodyguards. In the pictures she is seen holding hands with T’Challa so I am curious to find out if she is going to be as infatuated with him as she was in earlier comics. Only time will tell though.
