New Black Panther Movie Teaser Poster Shows Updated Costume

Black Panther (2018) - Chadwick Boseman
A new teaser poster for the upcoming Black Panther movie was released today and it features some slight changes to the costume.

It features star Chadwick Boseman dressed as T'Challa on his throne. I gotta say he looks insanely cool and world-weary at the same time.

Black Panther is the first Black superhero and the king of the fictional African nation of Wakanda. He made his first live-action movie appearance in Captain America: Civil War. 

His throne room is covered in Wakandan writing which was only spoken in Captain America: Civil War. In the movie, he's actually speaking the real world African language of Xhosa. It’s spoken by 7.6 million people in South Africa and is one of the official languages.

But the writing doesn't look anything like actual Xhosa which is written using the Latin alphabet with variations. The Wakandan in the movie uses symbols which is a nice touch and is reminiscent of traditional African designs.

The costume follows the same basic design as the first appearance, but it has more subtle styling on the chest and different accents on the boots.

The mask might be different too, but Marvel hasn't released a photo yet.

Here are some photos of the costume for comparison.

The first trailer for the movie will debut during Friday night’s match-up between the Golden State Warriors and Cleveland Cavaliers in the NBA Finals.

Official Black Panther movie synopsis:

Marvel Studios’ “Black Panther” follows T’Challa who, after the death of his father, the King of Wakanda, returns home to the isolated, technologically advanced African nation to succeed to the throne and take his rightful place as king. But when a powerful old enemy reappears, T’Challa’s mettle as king—and Black Panther—is tested when he is drawn into a formidable conflict that puts the fate of Wakanda and the entire world at risk. Faced with treachery and danger, the young king must rally his allies and release the full power of Black Panther to defeat his foes and secure the safety of his people and their way of life.

The film is directed by Ryan Coogler and produced by Kevin Feige with Louis D’Esposito, Victoria Alonso, Nate Moore, Jeffrey Chernov and Stan Lee serving as executive producers. Ryan Coogler & Joe Robert Cole wrote the screenplay.  Marvel Studios’ “Black Panther” hits U.S. theaters on February 16, 2018.
