In this day and age, where multi-picture franchises are involved, the major movie studios have taken the art of promotional hyping to new heights. Marvel Studios has been in its element all throughout with its efforts to drum up interest in the next installment of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Black Panther.
Every new trailer and spot has delicately teased something to expand upon the expected plot of the upcoming film slated to premiere next year. A snippet put up by Marvel Entertainment last week puts the emphasis on one facet of the lead character T’Challa (Chadwick Boseman): head of state.

The 30-second spot is framed around what appears to be a visit by King T’Challa of Wakanda to the United Nations to address the General Assembly. His voiceover hints that he, as ruler of the secretive African nation, is contemplating revealing to the world just how super-advanced they actually are.
Black Panther is directed by Ryan Coogler and is expected in cinemas on February 16, 2018. Boseman’s T’Challa wouldn’t be gone long either, as he is a prominent presence in the next MCU chapter after that, Avengers: Infinity War. Marketing for the movie has been fruitful, will positive reactions aplenty.
