The second ‘Black Panther’ trailer is here and this movie cannot open soon enough


A couple of things:

1. Music supervision for Marvel trailers has STEPPED UP. Hearing Zeppelin’s “Immigrant Song” at the top of the first “Thor: Ragnarok” trailer was tremendous. Hearing Run the Jewels’ “Legend Has It” woven into the first “Black Panther” trailer was just as fierce. Here, we get some Vince Staples verses and the vocal for Gil-Scott Heron’s “The Revolution Will Not Be Televised” over 21st century beats.

2. We see more of the wonder that is Wakanada, the African nation so technologically advanced that they, for generations wisely kept themselves isolated from the rest of the world. (Wouldn’t you?)

3. We see more of Erik Killmonger (Michael B. Jordan), who is rocking his own version  of the Black Panther outfit. Killmonger is also seen teaming up with Ulysses Klaw (Andy Serkis).

4. Everything in this trailer is a reminder than everything in life is improved with a generous helping of hip-hop, Afrofuturism and dope battle suits. 

Directed by Ryan Coogler, “Black Panther” comes out on February 16th, 2018.
