Marvel’s New Black Panther Trailer Highlights the Women of Wakanda

Marvel has released a new trailer for Ryan Coogler’s Black Panther. We get a better look at Wakanda’s technology but also its amazing women.

Check out the first trailer here in case you missed it. Here’s the new poster as well:

Chadwick Boseman reprises his role as T’Challa in the film to be released February 16th but the new trailer gives us some great looks at Lupita Nyong’o’s Nakia, Danai Gurira’s Okoye, Letitia Wright’s Shuri, Angela Bassett’s Ramonda, and of course more Dora Milaje. It’s amazing to see this many active women in a Marvel film.

Just taking a peak at the video’s comment section and possibly my favorite comment so far on the new trailer is this one:

Because, wow, that Wakandan tech is looking badass. I’m sure Tony Stark would die to get a peak inside Shuri’s lab.

Lastly, the music in this one is a mix of Gil Scott-Heron’s “The Revolution Will Not Be Televised” and Vince Staples’ “BagBak.” I believe this mix was created specifically for the trailer since I can’t find it elsewhere but here’s the originals

    Looks awesome.

    Super minor gripe: So, with the exception of Guardians, it seems like every starting marvel movie gives the protagonist a villain who is, to a large extent, some kind of dark version of themselves. Iron man v Iron Monger, Thor v Loki (both norse gods, & royalty), Hulk v Abomination, Cap v Red Skull ( they’re very different chars, but in the plot, they’re established as both super soldiers more or less made of the same stuff) and Iron Man kept the trend alive with it’s first sequel (and now that I think about it, cap 2 as well with winter soldier). Anyway, I’m somewhat disappointed that BP seems to be going the same route. Like, it looks great, and I understand the whole “if it ain’t broke” thing, But I really hope the movie doesn’t end on a Black Panther vs bad Black Panther thing. A bit more variation from the formula would be nice is all.

    Spider-man didn’t do the same thing but that franchise kinda has it’s own formula that Homecoming fit snugly into.

    That aside though, I love how unique the aesthetic is for this. There’s certainly plenty to differentiate BP from previous Marvel films.
