One of the stars from Comic-Con was the highly anticipated “Black Panther”, with footage and posters on display for attendees.
Like many other footage shown, the latest look at “Black Panther” isn’t available online, but thanks to the power of the internet we’ve had access to the description. The film is set after the events of “Captain America: Civil War”, with King T’Challa returning home to Wakanda to serve as the country’s leader.
“[The footage] begins with T’Challa walking through a metal detector and into a casino/nightclub. With him is Nakia. Serkis also arrives. He’s meeting with Martin Freeman’s Everett Ross. Klaue has his new, robotic arm. He’s exchanging a small portion of vibranium for for diamonds. Also with T’Challa is Okoye. She and Nakia are watching Klaw and Ross intently. ‘It’s now or never,’ says Okoye, extending a staff. A massive fight breaks out on two levels of the nightclub. Klaue tries to shoot T’Challa, but his gun is empty. ‘You know?’ says Klaue, ‘You look just like your old man.’ T’Challa is mourning his father’s death and trying to figure out how to be King when circumstances occur that force him to deal with a threat immediately. He converts his arm into a weapon, but T’Challa is too fast, blocking the blast with a nearby table. The footage changes into more of a trailer. There’s a cool shot of the Black Panther costume forming around T’challa with some kind of advanced tech. There’s a big car chase on a busy street with neon signs all around. At one point, Black Panther runs straight up a wall. The action looks insane. There’s Kendrick Lamar’s “Loyalty” playing over a bunch of it. We see the Black Panther costume form over T’Challa again, but it’s a slightly different design with a bit of gold in it.” (Via Comingsoon.net)
