If you are a Marvel fan or someone who loves superheroes movies, then we are sure you would have marked the release date of ‘Black Panther’, on your calendar by now. And if waiting for the movie’s release wasn’t tough already, Marvel is making things difficult for us by releasing short teasers and TV spots and the latest clip is the new addition in the bandwagon.

“You’re telling me the king of a third world country runs around in a bulletproof catsuit?” There could not have been a wittier and hilarious start to the trailer than this question that Martin Freeman asked on behalf of every ‘Black Panther’ fan out there. We are not trying to be sarcastic here; it’s just that we are quite excited about an epic showdown between the new king T’Challa (his father was killed in ‘Captain America: Civil War’) and Eric Killmonger (Michael B. Jordan), and how all of this affects Wakanda’s fate. 

However, unlike other teasers, this one focused more on Killmonger challenging T’Challa’s superiority and gave us an insight to other characters that were until now under the wraps. 

Directed by Ryan Coogler, the movie also stars Andy Serkis, Daniel Kaluuya and Lupita Nyong’o among others. The teaser looks exceptionally good and the soundtrack playing in the background literally had us right from the second it started.

Although this TV spot does not give much info about how the storyline will unfold, it surely intrigued us and gave us yet another reason to hit the theatres on February 16, 2018. These teasers are proof that ‘Black Panther’ has all that it needs to become one of the biggest blockbusters of 2018.

Action fantasies, thrillers and real-life inspired outings, Hollywood has abundant in store for fans in 2018

Avengers: Infinity War

Avengers: Infinity War
The third instalment in the Avengers franchise, Infinity War is awaited not only because it brings together Marvel’s coveted superheroes, but also since it marks their collaboration with the Guardians Of The Galaxy. The directorial venture of the Russo brothers, comprising Anthony and Joe, will unveil the disarray caused when the mad Titan, Thanos comes to collect the Infinity Stones. That Marvel’s recently released Thor: Ragnarok proved to be a sheer entertainer has fans eagerly awaiting this instalment.
US Release: May 4

Black Panther

Black Panther

Marvel Studios’ Black Panther follows T’Challa, who returns home to the isolated, technologically advanced African nation Wakanda, to become king. When a powerful old enemy reappears, T’Challa’s mettle as king — and Black Panther — is put to test. He is drawn into a formidable conflict that puts the fate of Wakanda, and the entire world, at risk. That T’Challa’s first standalone film borrows from African cultures will be a welcome relief from outings primarily based on European and Japanese folklore.
US Release: February 16

Ready Player One

Ready Player One

That this upcoming American Cyberpunk science fiction is being helmed by Hollywood genius Steven Spielberg is reason enough for fans to look forward to this venture. Warner Bros. Pictures’ offering, based on Ernest Cline’s 2011 book by the same name, is set in 2045, when the world is on the brink of chaos. Having found salvation in the expansive virtual reality universe, OASIS, citizens now find themselves embroiled in a contest to amass the fortune of the universe’s creator after his death. A digital Easter egg is the Holy Grail they must find.
US Release: March 30

Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom

Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom

Chris Pratt will reprise his role as Owen, and Bryce Dallas Howard returns as Claire in this sequel to 2016’s Jurassic World. The duo plans to rescue the dinosaurs from a volcano that warns to blow up an abandoned theme park. Along the way, they run into a bunch of new creatures, meet up with Ian Malcolm (Jeff Goldblum), and try to find Owen’s old raptor buddy, Blue.
US Release: June 22

Untitled Deadpool Sequel

Untitled Deadpool Sequel

Ryan Reynold’s shenanigans as the foul-mouthed superhero in the 2016 outing apparently earned 20th Century Fox’s Deadpool the title of the highest-grossing R-rated film in cinematic history. While its currently untitled sequel has a lot to live up to, the trailer of the film certainly looks promising. With a pairing that’s often been compared to Rush Hour’s Jackie Chan and Chris Tucker, it will be interesting to see how director David Leitch showcases the notorious protagonist, Deadpool, with the no-nonsense Cable.

Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes Of Grindelwald

Fantastic Beasts

While JK Rowling’s decision to rope in Johnny Depp in the second instalment of 2016’s Fantastic Beasts And Where to Find Them garnered sufficient criticism – Rowling, an advocator of women’s issues was pulled up for roping in Depp, who was accused of domestic violence – this outing is still awaited by Harry Potter fans. The sequel will apparently feature a young Albus Dumbledore, who instructs the hero to chase down villainous wizard Grindelwald (Depp). It promises to begin the battle for the ages between the esteemed professor and his former bestie-gone-rogue.
US Release:November 16

Solo: A Star Wars Story

Solo: A Star Wars Story

Ron Howard’s American space Western film, Solo is centered on a young Han Solo. The prequel follows the roguish smuggler, who later meets Luke Skywalker in Star Wars (1977). It chronicles his adventures with his Wookiee partner, Chewbacca, and their encounter with Lando Calrissian.
US Release: May 25

Mission: Impossible 6

Mission: impossible 6

Tom Cruise and director Christopher McQuarrie return to helm the sixth instalment of the action-adventure series, revealing very little of the storyline to fans just yet. What is certain is a depiction of protagonist Ethan Hunt’s emotional journey. McQuarrie had stated that, with this offering, fans will get “to know who Ethan is.” In what appears to be a bid to do so, he is also bringing back Michelle Monaghan as Ethan’s old flame, Dr Julia Meade.

X-Men – 2 releases

X-Men – 2 releases

With two offerings, New Mutants and Dark Phoenix, eyeing releases in 2018, Fox has a lot to look forward to next year. While New Mutants is being touted to be a horror that follows young mutants as they escape a facility in which they are being held against their will, the franchise’s second 2018 release will see the X-Men face the magnificent Dark Phoenix and the alien
empire.

Oceans Eight

Oceans Eight

Gary Ross’s Ocean’s Eight borrows from the basic premise of Ocean’s Eleven — a group of cons pull off an elaborate robbery — and gives it the old gender swap. The ensemble case has names like Sandra Bullock, Cate Blanchett, Rihanna, Mindy Kaling, Helena Bonham Carter, Anne Hathaway, Sarah Paulson and Awkwafina associated with it. It also stars a member of the original Eleven, apparently Matt Damon.
US Release: June 8

While some of us were busy unwrapping gifts on Monday, Marvel played Santa and packed the best possible surprise for the rest of us who weren’t expecting much (or didn’t get anything) this Christmas. Ahead of its release, over a month and a half to be precise, Marvel rolled out a short teaser of ‘Black Panther’. As if we weren’t getting desperate and impatient already while waiting for its release, Marvel Studios is making the wait harder by taking our excitement to a pinnacle with a constant number of teasers and trailers.

‘Black Panther’ is undoubtedly going to be THE most anticipated film to give 2018 the much need push to make a bang on entry. The trailer, which came out in October, has already skyrocketed our expectations and excitement, and this teaser totally lives up to its reputation of being brilliant.

Set in the fictional world of Wakanda, ‘Black Panther’ focuses on the journey of T’Challa (played by Chadwick Boseman), who became king after his father’s assassination in ‘Captain America: Civil War’.

If you are under the impression that this TV spot is going to be another video that will either be a compilation of clips from previous trailers, sorry to burst the bubble for you guys. This video teases us with glimpse of T’Challa with his bodyguard/ love interest Nakia (played by Lupita Nyong’o), and has shots of Erik Killmonger (played by Michael B. Jordan) yelling “I am gonna burn it all” with all his savagery and badassery intact. Honestly, this is where things heat up as we start craving for more of the two.

Although this action-packed teaser was only 30-seconds short, we have no complaints. Because like they say “good things come in small packages”; so we are going to play and replay this ‘King’ TV spot and relish this marvel-ous gift we could have ever asked for.

Directed by Ryan Coogler, ‘Black Panther’ will hit theatres on February 16, 2018 ahead of ‘Avengers: Infinity War’. ‘Black Panther’ also stars Danai Gurira, Martin Freeman, Daniel Kaluuya, Andy Serkis and Forest Whitaker.

After watching this teaser, we guess it’s safe to say that 2018 is going to be ruled by Marvel Studios (we are hopeful that at least the first half will).
