As if the first official poster wasn’t enough, Marvel Studios just dropped the first Black Panther trailer. And it looks AH-MAZING!

The two-minute trailer, which aired during Game 4 of the 2017 NBA Finals Friday night (Jun. 9), gives us a glimpse of Wakanda and its newly crowned king, T’Challa a.k.a. Black Panther (Chadwick Boseman).

Though the trailer doesn’t offer any plot details, it does suggest T’Challa will be tested as the fictional African nation’s new leader. In a voiceover, elder Wakandan statesmen Zuri (Forest Whitaker) tells T’Challa:

“The world is changing. Soon there will only be the conquered and the conquerors. You are a good man with a good heart, and it’s hard for a good man to be a king.”

We’re also treated to glimpses of Erik Killmonger (Michael B. Jordan), an exile who attempts to dethrone T’Challa, and Lupita Nyong’o, who plays Black Panther’s love interest and is a member of the Dora Milaje, the king’s all-female personal bodyguards. And if you blink, you might miss Angela Bassett, Black Panther’s mother.

The trailer was preceded by the release of the first official poster.

The poster and trailer combo got Twitter (Black Twitter, especially) extra hyped for the already highly-anticipated film, which features a predominately black cast and is the first superhero film with a black superhero lead.

Though we may want the film now, unfortunately, there’s a long wait until the Ryan Coogler directed film hits theaters. Black Panther will be released February 16, 2018.

At least we have ample time to plan out outfits.
