Black Panther Teaser already???

I was not expecting this anytime soon. At least, not until I saw the poster this morning with a statement that the teaser was coming tonight…

They have a lot of worldbuilding to do in this movie! Introducing Wakanda fully is a big step away from the realistic/mostly-like-our-Earth world that Marvel has thus far been operating in. The things that have been unlike our world have been things like SHIELD – operating in the shadows and covering up the unusual or unexplainable – or like the secret society in Doctor Strange.

But now we’re seeing into a deeper, different part of the Marvel universe. And from the looks of this teaser? They’ve done a pretty good job of it!

The one other thing I liked: they’ve captured some of the tension that Black Panther lives with: it’s hard for a good man to be a king.
