Chadwick Boseman took to Twitter early this morning to let us know we’d be getting our first teaser for Black Panther tonight during Game 4 of the NBA Finals:

The poster, which was tweeted out by the official Marvel Studios account, shows Boseman as T’Challa in his throne room in Birnin Zana, the Wakandan capital city known also as the Golden City. The ornate throne room, which includes a look the written Wakandan language, puts the spotlight on the throne itself, which will be at the center of the film’s conflict.
Not long ago Kevin Feige said they were cutting a trailer for the film, so it’s not surprising that we’re getting it now. With Marvel Studios producing 3 films a year, it seems each of their films will likely include promotional material for 2 others and with Spider-Man: Homecoming on its way to theaters in less than a month, we can expect to see this Black Panther teaser and a new trailer for Thor: Ragnaork!
The tweet also reveals a new logo for the film and longtime fans of the comic might notice that the blue color calls back to the blue-ish tint his costume had in the 1970’s Jungle Action series:
Black Panther, directed by Ryan Coogler, will hit theaters February 16, 2018.
