Marvel announced that tickets for Black Panther have been put up for pre-order. In addition to that piece of info, the film got one musical commercial that aired during the halftime of the CFP National Championship.
The footage from this promo is a mixture of both new and old — we see a little more interrogation of Ulysses Klaue from Everett Ross to see how much he knows about Wakanda, along with T’Challa donning the Panther armor to beat down some nighttime invaders. Sadly, we’re deprived of footage where Erik Killmonger is in his Golden Jaguar armor, but as a trade-off, we get to see actual black panthers in the Djalia, the Wakandan realm where Black Panthers can commune with Panthers of generations past.
Prior to the ad, the football game’s halftime performance was done by Kendrick Lamar. Lamar, who produces the soundtrack for Black Panther, played one of his songs, “All the Stars,” during his performance, albeit without SZA to handle the chorus. During the trailer, you can hear snippets of a new song featuring Lamar’s vocals, so it looks like he’ll be on for more than one track.
Arriving Feb. 16, Black Panther stars Chadwick Boseman, Michael B. Jordan, Lupita Nyong’o, Danai Guira, Daniel Kaluuya, Letitia Wright, Winston Duke, Martin Freeman, Forest Whitaker, Angela Bassett and Andy Serkis.
