"Black Panther" is on the prowl in the first trailer for the Marvel superhero's solo film.
Following the death of his father in "Captain America: Civil War," this film sees T'Challa (Chadwick Boseman) take up the mantle as King of Wakanda after he returns home to the "the isolated, technologically advanced African nation."
"But when a powerful old enemy reappears, T'Challa's mettle as king -- and Black Panther -- is tested when he is drawn into a formidable conflict that puts the fate of Wakanda and the entire world at risk," explains the official synopsis. "Faced with treachery and danger, the young king must rally his allies and release the full power of Black Panther to defeat his foes and secure the safety of his people and their way of life."
Bassett recently spoke with TooFab about the project, the actress promising that "no one's gonna be disappointed!"
Asked whether viewers will see her kicking any ass when the films drops in 2018, she teased, "You know, in some way. I don't know if it's the way you'd most expect but I certainly went into set every day with that on my mind: Kick plenty!"
"It is just a beautiful sight," she added of working with so many black actresses on the film. "It's a lot of strength and balance and beauty and I'm just thrilled by getting to work with Danai and Lupita and actresses and brand new faces across the diaspora, it was beautifully cast. It's going to be quite a sight and I think it's going to be magnetic."
