Comic-Con goes wild for 'Black Panther' at Marvel panel

The scene ends with T'Challa confronting a very charming and manic Klaue, who unveils his new, secret, highly technologic weapon: his prosthetic arm.

Fans will recall being introduced to Klaue in Avengers: Age of Ultron, when he assisted Ultron in obtaining black market Vibranium.

The clip was followed by the trailer for the film from "Creed" director Ryan Coogler and the 6,500 souls in the audience erupted into deafening cheers at the sight of T'Challa morphing into the Black Panther suit.

The footage is not yet available to the public, but fans at San Diego Comic-Con got a sneak peak of Marvel's Black Panther on Saturday. According to Time, the Comic-Con exclusive footage began with T'Challa, Okoye, and Nakia entering a casino. That's a pretty exciting prospect, and seeing T'Challa and his world finally get their due in the cultural consciousness is really something. Shots of a few people in a museum, a massive auto battle, Panther hopping between cars, Killmonger confronting T'Challa in his throne room. "He's still mourning his father's death", the actor said. "Arguably, Black Panther is the greatest superhero of all", Marvel Animation's Stephen Wacker said.

The footage then segued into more of a trailer/sizzle reel.

Chadwick plays the main character T'Challa/Black Panther. There was also a big vehicle chase through a busy street, plus several stand-offs with Panther's antagonist, Killmonger, played Michael B. Jordan. "One day I walked into the comic-book shop and was looking for comic-book character like me, and the first one I saw was Black Panther". "He has his eyes on the throne, and he's willing to do whatever it takes to get there". Daniel Kaluuya is W'Kabi, the leader of a border tribe, head of security and childhood friend of T'Challa. Lupita Nyong'o plays Nakia, "a spy, a war dog to keep Wakanda on top of things".

We first met Black Panther, also known as T'Challa during the events of Captain America: Civil War, where he played a key role in the war between Iron Man and Cap.

The new poster for Black Panther debuted at the panel and can be viewed here. However, when an old enemy reappears on the radar, T'Challa's mettle as King and Black Panther is tested when he is drawn into a conflict that puts the entire fate of Wakanda and the world at risk.

Opening on February 16, 2018, Ryan Coogler's Black Panther stars Chadwick Boseman as T'Challa, with Michael B. Jordan, Lupita Nyong'o, Danai Gurira, Martin Freeman, Daniel Kaluuya, Angela Bassett, Forest Whitaker, Andy Serkis, Letitia Wright, Winston Duke, Florence Kasumba, Sterling K. Brown and John Kani.
