Marvel recently aired a TV ad for Black Panther, the next installment in its shared cinematic universe. If you’re a Kendrick Lamar fan, you’re in for a treat; the commercial features one of his new beats.
The trailer is a mix between existing and new footage. It plays up the conflict between T’Challa, the titular Black Panther and his nemesis Erik Killmonger.
The film is set after the events of Captain America: Civil War. When T’Challa returns home to Wakanda, enemies conspire to bring down his kingdom. T’Challa must team up with CIA agent Everett K. Ross and members of the Dora Milaje – Wakanda’s special forces – to prevent a world war.
