The follow-up to a teaser that debuted during this summer’s NBA Finals opens with panoramic shots of the Kingdom of Wakanda’s natural beauty and technological prowess. The rest of the trailer depicts its new king T’Challa (Chadwick Boseman) as he becomes Black Panther, donning the character’s high-tech black bodysuit for challenges including walking up a skyscraper, removing an SUV’s wheel by hand and deflecting machine gun fire.
The clip also includes the first voice appearance of Black Panther’s principal adversary, Erik Killmonger (Michael B. Jordan). Other previously announced cast members—Danai Gurira as Okoye, leader of Wakanda’s all-women Dora Milaje special forces squad; Lupita Nyong’o as Dora Milaje member and T’Challa’s love interest Nakia; and Angela Bassett as his mother, Ramonda—also feature in the trailer.
Fans and colleagues enthusiastically greeted the release of the poster and trailer by turning #BlackPanther into a Twitter trending topic:
