Marvel released an exclusive footage and a new poster for Black Panther during its SDCC 2017 panel.

Marvel revealed a slew of new details about its upcoming cinematic releases, but one of the highest acclaimed ones was Black Panther. During its SDCC 2017 panel, Marvel Studios released a new poster for the movie and also played an exclusive footage of what is to come.

Black Panther Gets New Poster and Exclusive Footage


The new poster for the film shows T’Challa as he stands atop a panther statue. In doing so, he is looking over Wakanda as aircraft are also across the sky.

“Long live the king” is used as the tagline and can be found under the name and production studio, with the released date (2.16.2018) placed underneath it.

Those attending Black Panther’s panel also got an exclusive first look at footage from the upcoming movie. At least according to reports, it seems that they will be the only ones able to do so. This montage has yet to be posted online and might never be uploaded.

Details on the Footage

Nonetheless, the footage was discussed by many media sources. This first look at the movie features a sequence set in South Korea. It presents T’Challa (Chadwick Boseman), along with Nakia (Lupita Nyong’o) and Okoye (Danai Gurira) dressed in formal civilian attire at a casino. They seem to be shadowing Ulysses Klaue (played by Andy Serkis), the arms dealer.

Everett K. Ross, the government agent first introduced by Martin Freeman in Civil War, also makes an appearance as he has a scene with Klaue. Things go rather wild after the casino scene. T’Challa is being chased by a car, morphs into the Black Panther costume as he does so. His return to Wakanda leads to a combat scene on the sound of war drums and later a press conference.

The footage then zipped back to South Korea and shots of people in a museum, a car battle, and Killmonger confronting T’Challa, to keep it short. Killmonger also reveals his own Black Panther-like costume, this being gold-hued.

Although the footage will seemingly be kept under wraps, Marvel did post the cast’s reaction to the montage, and their excitement almost makes up for it.


Meanwhile, we can still watch the teaser trailer, released in early June.

The following two tabs change content below.
When I was younger I used to spend almost all of my free time playing computer games. My mom and dad would go mental over this. “You’re never going to do anything with your life if you are going to play games all day” they used to say. What was even more unusual was the fact that I played more games than most of the guys in my friend group. Looking back, I have to admit that I probably played a bit too much, but I also learned a lot of great things. When I turned 20 I decided that it was high-time to make some money of my own, but the only jobs I could get were that of waitress or cashier. How exciting. After several excruciating months of serving tables I had a great idea: since I love gaming so much, why don’t I write about it? That’s when I started doing small writing projects on Elance. Eventually, I got an offer for a part-time job. During that time I learned all about content marketing strategies and how search engines work. I started writing about various topics such as technology, health and lifestyle and discovered that I was actually good at it. On November 24, 2014, I became part of the ArgyllFreePress team.
