Marvel Studios is ramping up the hype for Black Panther, which releases early in 2018.
The world-dominating studio has revealed a brand new international trailer, which contains some previously unseen footage and a focus on the cool technology of Wakanda and King T'Challa's (Chadwick Boseman) fancy new superhero suit.
We can imagine that costume is going to be very popular for Halloween in 2018.
While Black Panther has had some very stylish trailers, not all of the marketing has been as slick – the character poster for Andy Serkis' Ulysses Klaue was mocked for some dodgy looking Photoshopping on his prosthetic hand (his real one was cut off by Ultron in Avengers: Age of Ultron).
Although Klaue will be a baddie in the film, the biggest threat facing the Black Panther will be Michael B Jordan's Erik Killmonger, a Wakandan exile who has eyes on the throne. Killmonger has plenty of followers who disagree with T'Challa's rule, including the fierce warrior M'Baku, who is known in the comics as the Man-Ape.
As well as Black Panther, the character will be appearing in Avengers: Infinity War, where the entire nation of Wakanda, including an unfrozen Bucky Barnes and a bearded Steve Rogers, go into battle against the alien invaders led by Thanos.
Black Panther is due to be released in cinemas on February 9, 2018 in the UK and February 16, 2018 in the US.
