Everything We Learned From the Black Panther Teaser Trailer
We got our first good look at Black Panther last night. And it was great and shockingly revealing about how things are going to go. As usual, we dissected the whole thing for you.
The trailer starts in an interrogation in a safehouse in what’s been confirmed to be Korea. Both men should be familiar to you from previous movies. On the right is Ulysses Klaue (Andy Serkis), also known in the comics as simply Klaw, an arms dealer who has dealt in stolen Wakandan uranium and once attempted to assassinate T’Chaka (John Kani). His missing arm is due to an altercation with with Ultron in Age of Ultron.
In the comics, he replaces his arm with a “sound generator.” In this film, his new arm is a “a piece of advanced Wakandan mining equipment.” We never actually see it in the trailer here, but there are hints as to what it might look like.
On the left is CIA agent Everett K. Ross (Martin Freeman), who popped up in Civil War in command of the Joint Counter Terrorist Centre working “with” the registered Avengers after the Sokovia Accords. We saw him be an extra-legal interrogator in that movie, too.
