Black Panther Character Posters Released

Thor: Ragnarok has already made $500 million worldwide, and it's set to win its second weekend at the US box office. So Marvel’s marketing machine is free to turn its attention to its next release, Black Panther. Long overdue, the movie's expected to expand the MCU into additional dimensions and possibly reveal the final Infinity Stone.

The main character is a fan favorite, and it's the MCU’s first solo flick to focus on an African-American superhero, so there's already a good amount of hype surrounding Black Panther. And after seeing the trailers that have been released so far, it's safe to say that the hype will increase even more as the release date approaches.

So check out these character posters for Black Panther's main players, via Collider!

Black Panther will be the final movie before Infinity War, so it's likely to answer some of the remaining questions about Thanos’ arrival. Obviously, the biggest question of all concerns the Soul Gem, the last undiscovered Infinity Stone.

Although the majority of fans believed that the Soul Gem would be revealed as the source of Odin’s power in Thor: Ragnarok, that didn't happen. A door was left open, but at this point, it's safe to assume that Black Panther will reveal this last puzzle piece.

The latest trailer already hinted at this. It does make sense for the Stone to be in Wakanda, given the country's technological advancements and T’Challa's ability to communicate with past Black Panthers.

It's another reason for Thanos’ Black Order to try to invade the country, as mentioned in the Comic Con descriptions of the Infinity War teaser.

Black Panther will be released on February 16, 2018.
