We won’t see some of Marvel‘s for another year or so, but thanks to the home video release of Doctor Strange we are provided with a glimpse of the movies currently in the pipeline in Phase 3 of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, which included Black Panther among other films. The Black Panther concept art gives us a much broader view of T’Challa’s homeland known as Wakanda, both the jungle and the Utopian-like city that is nestled within.
The city is rich in architecture that retains Wakanda’s history while at the same time is slick, modern, and futuristic. The older sections of the city are preserved in Lucite structures so that the population of the city can still live among its oldest structures but are unable to enter them in an effort to preserve them.
Black Panther follows T’Challa who, after the events of Captain America: Civil War, returns home to the isolated, technologically advanced African nation of Wakanda to take his place as King. However, when an old enemy reappears on the radar, T’Challa’s mettle as King and Black Panther is tested when he is drawn into a conflict that puts the entire fate of Wakanda and the world at risk.
The film stars Chadwick Boseman, Michael B. Jordan, Lupita Nyong’o, Danai Gurira , Martin Freeman, Daniel Kaluuya, Angela Bassett, Forest Whitaker, and Andy Serkis. Additional cast members include Letitia Wright, Winston Duke, Florence Kasumba, Sterling K. Brown, and John Kani.
Black Panther premieres in theaters on February 16, 2018.
