The craziest things about the Black Panther hype is that we haven’t actually seen a proper trailer yet. Everything up until now has technically been from sizzle reels and teasers. The first official trailer, though? It’s going to blow your mind.

One of the more interesting things about Marvel’s cinematic universe is that the Black Panther and the whole of Wakanda have just been there this entire time watching as aliens and insane robots have tried to destroy the world. Up until this point, the Wakandans have been perfect fine keeping to themselves. In the new trailer for the film, you finally get a sense of just why Wakanda isn’t bothered with the rest of the world’s bullshit. It’s because Wakanda’s basically in the goddamn future.

I can’t decide whether this looks amazing or awful.

I want it to be a success so badly, but I’m beginning to feel Marvel are phoning it in a bit and everything’s going a bit Marvel-by-numbers.

Looks good (other than some ropey-looking CGI when the two suits are falling through the air), but I really, desperately want a Marvel film to actually have a baddie that feels genuinely threatening and impactful.

Even if it’s shit, I want it to make fucktons of money though, just to get it right up all the racist twats out there.
