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.

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.
