By Sameer Rao Jun 12, 2017

As promised, Marvel offered audiences a first look at Ryan Coogler‘s "Black Panther" during Friday’s (June 9) fourth game of the NBA Finals.

The two-minute trailer shows Chadwick Boseman ("Get On Up") as T’Challa/Black Panther, returning to his native Wakanda for the first time since the events of "Captain America: Civil War" to take his place as king. Scenes of him ruthlessly dispatching an armed mercenary squad, partaking in traditional Wakandan ceremonies and flipping over a rolling carwreck play over Run the Jewels‘ "Legend Has It."

The trailer also introduces most of the film’s central characters, portrayed by the first all-Black leading Marvel movie cast: Danai Gurira ("The Walking Dead") as Okoye, head of Wakanda’s all-women Dora Milaje special forces squad; Lupita Nyong’o ("Queen of Katwe") as Dora Milaje member and love interest NakiaMichael B. Jordan ("Creed") as  adversary Erik KillmongerDaniel Kaluuya ("Get Out") as confidant W’KabiAngela Bassett ("Close to the Enemy") as mother Ramonda; and Forest Whitaker ("Rogue One: A Star Wars Story") as Wakandan elder statesman Zuri.

Watch the trailer above, and check out "Black Panther" in theaters next February.
