"Black Panther": Watch new trailer for Marvel's upcoming movie

Director Ryan Coogler sits down withFandangoto talk about the movie's inspirations and reveals that one of them is 007.

Black Panther opens in theaters on February 16th. With T'Challa's sister Shuri said to be as smart as Tony Stark, I'm guessing that she will be the Q to his Bond, providing any gadgets or upgrades he would need on his missions.

At the end of his set, Lamar gave a shout-out to "Black Panther" before the movie commercial kicked in.

Rowanda reportedly appears in Avengers: Infinity War too. It is still early, but Black Panther is already poised to impress.

According to Deadline, advanced ticket sales for Marvel's upcoming Black Panther are topping the team-up film Captain America: Civil War, hinting that T'Challa and Wakanda will make a huge impact on the box office. Black Panther: Long Live the King's third issue will launch on Comixology January 10, with the concluding issue of Covington and DelPennio's story releasing a few weeks later on January 31.

Black Panther besting Civil War is no small feat, even if this record comes from just the first 24 hours and only on Fandango.

Civil War opened to $179M in its opening weekend, so Black Panther coming anywhere close to that figure (or even topping it) may not be insane to think anymore. Panther star Chadwick Boseman was also voted by the fans as the most anticipated comic book hero in a standalone movie, while co-stars Danai Gurira & Winston Duke were picked among the rising stars of 2018, and Michael B. Jordan as one of 2018's most anticipated screen villains. Deadpool now holds that distinction with $132.4 million.

"It's got the big [feeling] but yet it doesn't feel out of control", Bassett said.
