Most Black Panther footage we’ve seen has been in the context of featurettes, teasers and trailers, but now we’ve got the very first clip from the film.
The footage debuted during Chadwick Boseman’s Monday appearance on Ellen.
This scene in particular, which sees Shuri (Letitia Wright) and T’Challa/Black Panther (Chadwick Boseman) in an intense chase with Klaw (Klaue), has been featured in most promos, but now we get the gist of what is actually happening here.
Check out the clip and Boseman’s conversation with DeGeneres below.
Also view another featurette that was recently released, called “Wakanda Revealed.”
Black Panther follows T’Challa who, after the death of his father, the King of Wakanda, returns home to the isolated, technologically advanced African nation to succeed to the throne and take his rightful place as king. 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. 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.
The film is directed by Ryan Coogler and produced by Kevin Feige with Louis D’Esposito, Victoria Alonso, Nate Moore, Jeffrey Chernov and Stan Lee serving as executive producers. Ryan Coogler & Joe Robert Cole wrote the screenplay.
