Marvel's 'Black Panther' Leaves A Big Footprint In Hall H

Marvel's 'Black Panther' Leaves A Big Footprint In Hall H

New footage was screened today at San Diego Comic-Con 2017 that day and at Disney's D23 fan convention in Anaheim, California earlier this month. And it's a beauty.

But the stars of the film gathered exclusively at EW's studio after debuting the clips to walk us through what was revealed - and which mysteries are being teased.

Check out the stunning art below, which shows T'Challa standing atop a panther statue as he looks out over Wakanda, along with the tagline: "Long live the king".

X-Men fans will be able to piece together how T'Challa and Killmonger mirror the elder mutants.

Martin Freeman's Everett Ross is still up to no good. Conveniently, Klaue's run out of bullets. but less conveniently, it turns out his prosthetic arm opens up to form a metal claw (Klaue, claw - get it?) capable of generating some kind of force field.

GOP health plan fiasco a long-running drama
The failure - so far - of the Republican attempt to repeal and replace Obamacare is a lesson in the wages of political bad faith. On Thursday , the White House and GOP leaders looked for ways to win over senators.

Andy Serkis: "Ulysses is a wheeler dealer who can get on the phone and compromise any government".

Letitia Wright's Shuri is the Q of this crew, who develops new technology, weapons, and is generally, as the actress puts it, "Just a strong black woman!" Nyong'o's Nakia - a "war dog" undercover operative, who is like James Bond and a Bond girl wrapped up in one - is ready to fight.

It's important that T'Challa, a.k.a. "He's still mourning his father's death", the actor said. Forest Whitaker's Zuri is the king's childhood mentor. The Walking Dead's Danai Gurira sat laughing in her seat before hugging Nyong'o. She draws down. Klaue gets spooked, and Okoye ends up pulling out a tiny piece of Vibranium herself - a purse-sized implement that extends to a full-sized spear.

She loves that Wakanda is the most technologically advanced nation on Earth, because, as she loudly proclaimed to the hall, "It is on the CONTINENT of AFRICA!" The film is directed by Ryan Coogler who said at Comic Con that he feels he was destined to do the film. He took this project on so he could remedy that for the next generation. As he starts running, though, the suit seems to nearly dissolve away to become the Black Panther suit.

Scenes showed T'Challa in slick, explosive fight scenes with a villain named Ulysses (Andy Serkis) as well as T'Challa's ambitious brother Erik (Michael B. Jordan). It's similar to the panther suit, but with gold highlights instead of silver, suggesting a jaguar rather than a Panther. The Thor poster in particular is glorious, making use of the bright colors, big cast of characters, and really letting you know that this Thor movie is going to be radically different than the first two. One of the cronies hears Gurira's character, Okoye, whisper too loud, and the action-packed portion of the scene begins.
