So I will be the first to admit that I don’t know that much about Black Panther except what I gleaned from the animated series Avengers: Earth’s Mightiest Heroes. I know that his real name is T’Challa, he’s the ruler of Wakanda, and Wakanda is where vibranium (what Captain America’s shield is made of) comes from. That’s pretty much all I know, so when I saw the first poster and trailer/teaser for the Black Panther film coming out early next year had been released, I decided to check it out.
Even though this was only the first teaser, I already love the look of the film. The idea of Wakanda having this hidden advanced technology and the outside world has no idea (well, except for Andy Serkis’s character) sounds super-interesting. I’m excited to learn more about the culture of Wakanda and how exactly this film ties in to the overall story (because there’s going to be a tie-in somewhere, there is ALWAYS a tie in somewhere).
What do you think of this first look at Black Panther? Is it already on your “must-see” list for next year? Let me know what you think in the comments below.
There’s just about a week left to sign up for the 2nd Annual Remembering James Horner Blogathon here , it should be a great time!!
