Since we're getting the first Infinity War official trailer tomorrow just thought of something about this movie:

I think the ending credits are going to reveal the last Infinity Stone (the Soul Stone) is in Wakanda and that is the first place that Thanos is going to hit when he goes to earth. Again could be wrong but seems like that's what would make sense to get T'Challa and the people in his movie's world involved in that movie. So just wanted to point that out before that Infinity War teaser happens.

I think there was actually an Infinity War Lego set that
confirms the Soul Stone is in Wakanda.

EDIT 12/11: International Trailer with some new scenes:

New bios released. Nakia, Killmonger, and Ross have the most new info (and intriguing imo).
The most intriguing bits I see are:

- Nakia being T'Challa's ex.

- Killmonger's Special Ops experience and inexplicable knowledge of Wakanda.

- The tease to M'Baku being a reluctant ally/potential enemy.

- Ross and T'Challa's stories converege through Klaw
Everybody dressed to the nines ;).

I was also curious what Nakia's spy mission was and Ross isn't with the JTTF now. I suppose for the latter, the debacle with Zemo and Winter Soldier probably didn't do him any good with his superiors.

For some reason, I remember hearing something about and flashback to possibly the 90's in Oakland, CA. Am I wrong on that?
Yeah, at least a rumor of it.

And there's still the question of what happened to Sharon...

Yeah, I think there've been theories ranging from it covering Killmonger's origin to T'Challa's education abroad :).

Going by the trailer, it seems definite that Killmonger wins the Warriors Fall fight and title of king but then "The Black Panther has returned" happens and we get that scene of him walking on the plains, leading to the climactic fight between T'Challa, the Doras, and Killmonger.

The only thing that doesn't track is that it seems like T'Challa and Killmonger have their final fight at night and in the middle of Wakanda, so I guess they don't settle things then...

^^^Yeah, I guess T'Challa bests him but that's not enough for Killmonger and he steals a suit then attacks him later into the night.

Killmonger's words about wanting it all made me wonder if he's T'Chaka's illegitimate son - a bit older than T'Challa - and thus, can have a legitimate claim for the throne.

I am kind of curious why he feels he has a claim/obsession to the throne in this continuity, though while he might not be T'Chaka's illegitimate son his father in this continuity might be connected to the Royal Family before his exile to the States (if that part of Killmonger's backstory is still intact).

Ugh. Hearkens to the back end of Luke Cage Season 1.
