Keeping up with the momentum that Marvel Studio's maintained in the year 2017, the comic book and entertainment company released its new trailer for much-awaited movie "Black Panther". 

The new trailer was first showcased at the College Football Playoff national championship game between the Alabama Crimson Tide and Georgia Bulldogs with more intensity, action and heart-racing visuals than before. The Ryan Coogler-directed comic book pic premiered immediately after singer Kendrick Lamar, who is producing the movie’s soundtrack, performed during half-time at the game.


In the new trailer, actor Chadwick Boseman’s T’Challa’s who plays the role of Black Panther (King of Wakanda) can be seen as literally the King who fights off enemies Erik Killmonger essayed by Michael B. Jordan and Ulysses Klaue played by Andy Serkis. 

It focuses on T’Challa who, after the death of his father, the real 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 the King and as "Black Panther" is tested. 

Faced with betrayal and tremendous danger, he must bring together his allies and release the full power of Black Panther to defeat them and secure the safety of his people and their way of life.

The movie also stars Lupita Nyong’o, Danai Gurira, Martin Freeman, Daniel Kaluuya, Letitia Wright and Winston Duke, with Angela Bassett, and Forest Whitaker.

Coogler wrote the screenplay with Joe Robert Cole while Marvel’s Kevin Feige is on board as the executive producer along with Louis D’Esposito, Victoria Alonso, Nate Moore, Jeffrey Chernov and Stan Lee.
