‘Black Panther’ Teaser Receives Standing Ovation at Comic-Con

The Georgia filmed Marvel production, Black Panther is probably one of the most anticipated movies coming from the Marvel Cinematic Universe. The production has a lot of pressure as it depicts a predominately black cast in a genre, which mostly features Caucasian actors. That said, a teaser trailer was released at Comic Con and the crowd reportedly gave the clip a standing ovation.

The movie starts with T’Challa and Wakanda still reeling with the events of Captain America: Civil War, the cast, and crew explained that the death of T’Challa’s father and Wakanda’s king, T’Chaka, are important to the movie’s storyline, Polygon reported.

“The best thing about the comic book was that T’Chala got his power from the people around him — and where I come from, that’s how we live,” said director Ryan Coogler.

As the cast left the stage, Marvel played several clips from the movie that were exclusive to the audience’s eyes only and the final clip received a standing ovation, according to Polygon.

There have been dozens of casting calls for the movie so, it is great to see a vision become a reality. Black Panther stars Chadwick Boseman, Michael B. Jordan, Lupita Ny’yongo and Andy Serkis. Black Panther hits theaters on February 16, 2018.
