With Chadwick Boseman and Ryan Coogler, the revolution will sure as hell be live.

Now that Marvel knows that presale numbers are through the roof, they can leisurely continue their onslaught of Black Panther media (yes, that means more tickets presold than previous champion Captain America: Civil War). Following up on the recent TV spot during the National Title Game, Marvel has dropped an interview with Black Panther himself, Chadwick Boseman.

Boseman uses the spot to talk about where on the timeline Black Panther takes place. It is after the events of Civil War, and how T’Challa has to be more than a superhero, he has to be king of a people. The loss of his father was immense to him, but his people as well.

It also showcases the struggle for power in Wakanda. Wakanda is the most technologically advanced civilization on the planet and whoever has control, has immense potential. Whatever happens there can quickly affect the rest of the world.

While we are still waiting for a more substantial look into the movie, perhaps Marvel is keen on leaking details slowly, piece by piece. There didn’t seem like that much new footage in either the TV spot or this featurette, but Marvel keeps supplying that good Black Panther footage, and we keep getting excited about it.
