However, the intro for Black Panther movie was the only one who received a standing ovation.

Comic Con’s Hall H welcomed on its stage director Ryan Coogler together with the cast of the upcoming production namely Chadwick Boseman, Michael B. Jordan, Daniel Kaluuya, Danai Gurira, Letitia Wright, Forest Whitaker, Lupita Nyong’o, and Winston Duke. Coogler highlighted his excitement for this project. He admitted that he was searching for a comic book screening that features a superhero to which he could personally relate.
“I wanted to find a comic book with a hero that looked like me.”
Black Panther: T’Challa will immerse the audience more into the story behind this superhero. Coogler stated that the powers of this character stem from the people that surround him, which is a valuable lesson to everyone.
Black Panther Will Have to Fight Evil While Learning to Become a Righteous Ruler
The panel disclosed some exclusive details about the plot. The movie will resume Black Panther’s life after the Civil War events. The audience will take a look at how T’Challa attempts to cope with the pain that the death of his father brought upon him.
