It has been a long time coming, but Black Panther is almost upon us. After waiting since being first teased on a map in Iron Man 2 back in 2010, T'Challa's first solo outing, set to be the 18th instalment in the MCU, will hit cinemas in early 2018.
With Chadwick Boseman reprising his role as T'Challa, now king of Wakanda, being backed by Creed director Ryan Coogler and an incredible cast featuring Michael B. Jordan, Lupita Nyong'o, and Forest Whitaker to name just a few, audiences and comic book fans everywhere are eagerly anticipating seeing Wakanda brought to life.
While there are certain things we know about this movie already, Marvel's marketing machine has done a much better job of keeping Black Panther's secrets than with other recent movies - Spider-Man Homecoming and Thor: Ragnarok in particular.
