New ‘Black Panther’ Movie Photos Send Twitter Into a Frenzy


While we’re still months away from the Feb. 18 release of Marvel’s Black Panther, Entertainment Weekly has pulled back the curtains and revealed a ton of new information about the movie.

The cast of the upcoming film, including Chadwick Boseman, Michael B. Jordan and Lupita Nyong’o grace the cover of Entertainment Weekly’s annual Comic-Con preview and detail what viewers can expect from the film. New photos from the movie also give us a look at Forest Whitaker as Zuri, Jordan as Erik Killmonger and Nyong’o as Nakia.

Jordan will act as the enemy of the Black Panther. Killmonger is described by EW as a “dissident from the country and aspiring prince who has colluded with hostile foreign adversary in a bid to bring down the rightful heir to Wakanda’s throne.” In one photo, we can see the Black Panther and Killmonger facing off.

“In this movie, a lot like politics, it’s a little tricky to define who’s [a good guy],” said director and co-writer Ryan Coogler. “The film very much plays with those concepts, looking at conflicts and different motivations, and who’s with who.”

Over on Twitter, fans were loving the new photos, with some calling them, “Gorgeous. Absolutely gorgeous.” Others praised the overall look of the film with one user writing, “Has a film ever looked so beautiful?” Check out some of the best Twitter reactions below.
