Not just black, but African. I absolutely love the look and designs of this; it pretty much looks like what a big budget movie about an African superhero should look like.
The costumes, architecture, makeup and weapon design all seem to encompass elements of Africa's huge and diverse cultural history, which is incredibly deep for each nation, tribe and ethnicity.
Yes, the forest scene looked cheaper, but it screamed of being early footage, but everything else?
It looks like it took the same outlandish, Jack Kirby "larger than life" aesthetic we saw in the Thor: Ragnarok trailer but put it under an African filter.
I'm absolutely thrilled with it, even more because it hints at exactly what makes Black Panther a great character: that he is essentially a Warrior King, and as such, the threats, responsibilities and consequences he deals with are above that of other heroes.
And again, this is a high budget, tent pole studio film that is pretty much entirely black on its creative and acting camps.
That is absolutely huge; if the film is a bonafide box office and critical hit, it would follow on Wonder Woman's heels in terms of creative and casting diversity taking over Hollywood.
This could be a game changer.
