Check Out These 7 Stunning New 'Black Panther' Posters

Next up on the MCU slate is Black Panther, the solo story of the Wakandan prince-turned King we first met in Captain America: Civil War.  The amount of excitement around this film is just unreal, and we can't wait to experience what director Ryan Coogler (Fruitvale, Creed) has created.

Today, Marvel (and the cast) released 7 new posters, centering around T'Challa's royal family and Andy Serkis's character Ulysses Klaue. Each was posted on twitter with the hashtag #WakandaForever.

Check them out:

Andy Serkis is Ulysses Klaue, the black-market smuggler who infiltrated Wakana to steal its precious rare ore, Vibranium. Klaue returns to Wakanda working alongside Erik Killmonger, with the hand he lost to Ultron replaced by Wakandan tech, in the form of a sonic disruptor.

Forest Whitaker is Zuri, elder of Wakanda, who is a religious and spiritual leader, as well as a statesman. Zuri is the keeper of the special herb that gives Black Panther his power, and helped T'Challa's father T'Chaka on his own rite of passage.

Lupita Nyong'o 
is Nakia, a former lover of T'Challa and the Dora Milaje's cunning undercover operative, sent out into the world to keep an eye on things.

Danai Guiria
is Okoye, a proud Wakandan traditionalist and head of the Dora Milaje, the elite group of female warriors.

Angela Bassett
is Ramonda, T'Challa's mother and adviser, helping the young king follow in his father's footsteps.

Letitia Wright is Shuri, T'Challa's sister and Princess of Wakanda, who is a tech savvy inventor. In the comics, Shuri eventually graduates to being the first female Black Panther.

Chadwick Boseman
returns as T'Challa the Black Panther, the new king of Wakanda. He must return home to reclaim his throne, and open his isolated kingdom up to the larger world of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

Needless to say, this movie looks incredible and every new thing Marvel releases gets us more excited.

Black Panther hits theaters on February 16th 2018.
