Say hello to your new Marvel crush…
For those of you who went to see Captain America: Civil War last year, you’ll be more than familiar with Wakanda’s incredibly handsome king T’Challa, who also goes under the guise of Black Panther.
The ferocious hero will return to screens next year in his own standalone film as part of the ever-expanding Marvel Cinematic Universe – and these latest pictures will have you swooning over him.
Played by Chadwick Boseman, Black Panther will be joined by Michael B Jordan as Erik Killmonger, and Lupita Nyong’o as Nakia.
“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,” a synopsis for the film reads.
“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.”
Here for it.
Black Panther will open in UK and US cinemas on 16 February, 2018.
It will follow November’s Thor: Ragnarok in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, and comes just before the first part of the all-star Avengers: Infinity War next May.
