If there's one thing that the trailer for Marvel Studios' Black Panther shows us, it's that a revolution is bigger than any one man; and in the newly released poster, we're introduced to those who will stand by King T'Challa's/Black Panther's side for the sake of Wakanda…and those who will do whatever it takes to tear it all apart for the sake of their "new world order".
Black Panther star Chadwick Boseman took to Twitter early Monday morning to release the poster:

Following-up on where events left off in Captain America: Civil War, King T'Challa (Boseman) returns home to Wakanda in time to find his very sovereignty challenged by warring factions from within his own borders. When Wakandan exile Erik Killmonger (Michael B. Jordan) and black market arms dealer Ulysses Klaue (Andy Serkis) conspire to bring down his reign, T'Challa must become the Black Panther; and with the aid of C.I.A. agent Everett K. Ross (Martin Freeman), as well as Okoye (Danai Gurira) and members of Wakandan special forces unit Dora Milaje to prevent a world war.
Directed by Ryan Coogler, Black Panther stars stars Boseman, Jordan, Gurira, Freeman, Lupita Nyong'o, Angela Bassett and Forest Whitaker; and is set for a February 16, 2018 release.
