A new teaser trailer for Ryan Coogler’s Black Panther aired on ESPN last night, introducing Andy Serkis as the film’s primary antagonist. As Ulysses Klaue, an arms dealer working in South Africa, he has a personal and vague vendetta against Wakandan king T’Challa and the rest of the nation of Wakanda.
In the trailer’s opening shot, Martin Freeman — reprising his role as CIA agent Everett Ross from Captain America: Civil War — asks him, “You’re telling me that the king of a third world country runs around in a bulletproof catsuit?” Yep! From there it’s all preparation for conflict, with Chadwick Boseman’s Black Panther and Michael B. Jordan’s Killmonger suiting up and lookin’ cool.
The new trailer has some old footage, but also teases a new song featuring Kendrick Lamar and Vince Staples — likely the second single off of the soundtrack that Lamar produced for the film.
Black Panther is in theaters February 16th.
