Explore The Lush Jungles Of Wakanda With New Concept Art For Marvel’s Black Panther

As one of the early entries into Phase Three, Doctor Strange marked a defining milestone for the Marvel Cinematic Universe in that it not only propelled the timeline forward in the aftermath of Civil War, but it also opened up the more fantastical realms of the MCU to the moviegoing masses. It’s only fitting, then, that the film’s home video release comes packing a raft of Marvel-related extras for Doctor Strange and beyond.

Now available on Digital HD, Strange‘s bonus content features an exciting preview of Marvel’s Phase Three, and one such film to receive the spotlight is Ryan Coogler’s Black Panther. Pegged for release in the early stages of 2018, today brings forth a slew of concept art for the upcoming spinoff, which sheds some light on the advanced African nation of Wakanda and the lush jungles that envelope it. Embedded above, you’ll also get a fleeting glimpse of Chadwick Boseman’s would-be King giving chase.


Indeed, Boseman is just one part of the film’s tremendous ensemble cast. Marvel officially locked down its talented roster once production began late last month, confirming that both Martin Freeman (Everett Ross) and Andy Serkis (Ulysses Klaw) will appear in Black Panther as early rumors suggested. Come 2018, they’ll be flanked by Michael B. Jordan, Lupita Nyong’o, Danai Gurira, Daniel Kaluuya, Angela Bassett, Rogue One‘s Forest Whitaker, Letitia Wright, Winston Duke, Florence Kasumba, Sterling K. Brown, and John Kani.

Black Panther is one of five Marvel movies currently in active production along with Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 (May 5th), Spider-Man: Homecoming (July 7th), Thor: Ragnarok (November 3rd) and Avengers: Infinity War (May 4th, 2018). Expect Ryan Coogler’s solo movie to scurry into theaters in time for February 16th, 2018.

Black Panther follows T’Challa who, after the events of “Captain America: Civil War,” returns home to the isolated, technologically advanced African nation of Wakanda to take his place as King. However, when an old enemy reappears on the radar, T’Challa’s mettle as King and Black Panther is tested when he is drawn into a conflict that puts the entire fate of Wakanda and the world at risk.
