Marvel Studios has dropped the first teaser poster for BLACK PANTHER, with the promise of a teaser trailer later today during Game 4 of the NBA Finals. Synergy?

Depicting T’Challa (Chadwick Boseman), who was first introduced to the Marvel Cinematic Universe in Captain America: Civil War, the newly minted Wakandan king takes to the throne. It’s a particularly powerful image for long-time Marvel readers, as Black Panther is a central figure in the most powerful corners of the Marvel Comics Universe.

Marvel Studios’ “Black Panther” follows T’Challa who, after the death of his father, the King of Wakanda, returns home to the isolated, technologically advanced African nation to succeed to the throne and take his rightful place as king. But when a powerful old enemy reappears, T’Challa’s mettle as king—and Black Panther—is tested when 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.

It hits Australian cinemas on 15 February 2018, and the US on 16 February, from Disney.
