    There's got to be one teaser for BP and one for IW. Maybe a battle in the city causes a power surge and Bucky is prematurely thawed out?

    Pity they couldn't find that machine or old HYDRA notes to reverse engineer a cure -- probably why it's taking the tech team a while to figure out a solution. But it's funny to think a couple of problems among the characters could be fixed by an Infinity Stone in theory.

    7/18: Finally new content from the tie-in comics. I think the Homecoming one had 2 or 3 new pages and assorted monologue in what was an adaptation of Civil War.

    A new still from the Lexus PR announcement.

    7/20: Will be a new suit or a mod. It appears that energy absorbing feature will be incorporated.

    I wonder if Shuri designed the new suit or if it's T'Challa's personalized one, with the original being T'Chaka's old suit :)?

    It'll be interesting to see how the energy absorption works in the movie, though I imagine it'll probably be useful against Klaw :cool:.

    Some additional stuff from interviews. Michael B. Jordan compares Killmonger's relationship with T'Challa to Magneto and Charles Xavier from the X-Men. It definitely sounds like Shuri is the one who designed the new nano-suit for T'Challa.


    Jordan also says Killmonger is from Oakland in this version rather than Harlem. I guess that is in keeping with the overall trend of the MCU movies trying to spread things out instead of making everything happen in New York (like moving Iron Man to Malibu and Ant-Man to San Francisco, or having Thor happen in New Mexico).

    Perhaps a nod to Jordan's portrayal of Oscar Grant in Fruitvale Station which Coogler also directed.

    Well Ryan Coogler himself is from Oakland. Also, the Black Panther party originated there with Huey P. Newton, Bobby Seale, and Angela Davis. A Museum is there now too I might want visit someday. FYI, they were never a racist group like the Nation of Islam, they were very real "Defenders" with law abiding intellectual stance in a very harrowing time for African Americans in the U.S.

    Boseman confirms the movie starts off with Wakanda in unrest because not everyone want's T'Challa to take the throne. Serkis revealed Klaue's sonic disruptor will be a mining tool he retrieves and presumably mods. Klaue is out to expose Wakanda to the world, as an arms dealer, he's skilled at taking down governments and playing people, and has a personal vendetta against T'Challa. Coogler on what differentiates BP from the other MCU movies.

    I'm guessing the vendetta stems from T'Challa being the Black Panther that ruined Klaue's operations in Wakanda :cool:.

    M'Baku and the Jabari Tribe don't believe in the importance of Vibranium for Wakanda moving forward - hence conflict with T'Chaka and now T'Challa.

    I was speculating if that scene in the trailer where BP drops from a tree after a dog barks and nails those armed men might have been from a skirmish with Klaue in the past.

    Doesn't sound like she'll be much of a princess in this continuity though (unless she's a Silver Sable-type) :ack:.

    Hmm, wonder if it's the same outfit of mercenaries that makes a grab for Klaue in the trailer - the one with a guy, Nightshade, and Killmonger. Or pretty much anyone who's heard about the Vibranium wants to take a shot at stealing some.

    The toy line for the movie was unveiled today, and it had the first official look at the Killmonger outfit that was mentioned in the Comic-Con trailer.
