At San Diego Comic-Con, Marvel screened Black Panther footage that was so amazing, the movie’s own cast gave it an ecstatic ovation. We don’t have that to share, but we did get a chance to talk to T’Challa himself, Chadwick Boseman, and ask him about how his royal character fits into the rest of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

Black Panther hits theaters February 16, 2018.
