Marvel Studios has released a new Black Panther TV spot. It follows T'Challa (Boseman) after the death of his father, the king of the fictional African nation of Wakanda, and his ascension to the throne.
There was also widespread praise for the performance delivered by Michael B.Jordan in the role of villain Erik Kilmonger who is hellbent on taking control of Wakanda.
Actress Sope Aluko, who plays Shaman in the film, was born in Nigeria, and she, for one, is particularly proud of Black Panther's depiction of Africa. "I thought that was very forward thinking".
"Women are just front and center in 'Black Panther, '" she says. The commercial features intense action sequences from the movie and never-before-seen clips that were specially shot for the commercial. They started to see it tonight at the movie's world premiere, and while reviews aren't going to hit for a while, Twitter reactions are a different story. "It's 'Black Panther, ' but you know". The film is deemed a game-changer party because it challenges the rural, tribal stereotypes which have been perpetuated by American portrayals of our continent for so long, and the use of drum music goes back to that kind of portrayal.

Broadnax anticipates that Black Panther will change the response to diversity on the big screen. The Lexus LC 500 that we'll see in the movie also makes a cameo in the ad. "We're so used to seeing these comic-book heroes who are white dudes named Chris". I would have to be in shape and just be straight bodied up. "I couldn't be more thrilled about that".
