'Black Panther' First Look - See Chadwick Boseman, Lupita Nyong'o & Michael B. Jordan in Character!

Check out this first look at T’Challa (Chadwick Boseman), Nakia (Lupita Nyong’o), and Erik Killmonger (Michael B. Jordan) from Marvel’s Black Panther, on the cover of EW!

Director Ryan Coogler spoke about what makes Black Panther different from other superheros. “What makes [Black Panther] different from other superheroes, first and foremost, is he doesn’t see himself as a superhero. He sees himself as a politician,” Ryan said.

“Ryan’s making this movie for his 8-year-old self,” Kevin Feige, president of Marvel Studios and producer on Black Panther, said. “That’s why you do it. Most importantly, you do it for other 8-year-olds, to inspire the next generation the way we were inspired. And when Ryan was growing up, there weren’t that many of these heroes to be inspired by that looked like him.”
