I love trailers. I think there is a special skill to putting together a good trailer. It must capture the attention and entice an audience but give very little away so that the viewer doesn’t feel like they’ve already seen the movie. Very few trailers master this but there are many that try and get very close. Every day I will highlight a new trailer which manages to successfully get me excited for a movie. Today’s is another entry into the Marvel series and it looks cooler than ever…
As other studios desperately search for their “Cinematic Universe,” Marvel continues unabated and expands further into the superheroes and stories that people are less familiar with. This trailer introduces Black Panther’s solo movie after his impressive debut in Captain America: Civil War.
It also brings back Martin Freeman and Andy Serkis who were both under-used but well-introduced in Civil War as well, further developing and enhancing the idea that these films can stand-alone but help build the wider universe.
As with any Marvel trailer, this is full of cool moments and using an interrogation to help introduce the Wakanda civilisation is a clever move. There is plenty of action, spectacle and as customary, an impressive set-piece to end the trailer. This could be very cool!
Overall, Black Panther looks set to be another successful Marvel entry and the introduction of a cool superhero the likes we may not have seen before.
