'Black Panther': Control, Speed and Power TV Spot Released

Marvel Studios has released a new TV spot for Black Panther.

The new spot has Shuri (Letitia Wright), the sister of T'Challa (Chadwick Boseman), telling her brother that to be the Black Panther he needs control, speed, power, and swag. All things she can provide.

You can watch the new spot in the video above.

Boseman has previously stated that Shuri is the most important character in Black Panther.

"Her role is the most important," Boseman said. "In the comic book, T'Challa is a scientist and a king, but my sister is the whiz kid. She is the one with that gift. She's the Tony Stark of Wakanda. She's witty, she's cool, she's funny. Now, T'Challa is good in science too, but she's the whiz. That's the way the story's been told forever. T'Challa is technologically sound. He's a scientist as well, but she's the minister of technology."

In the Marvel Comics Universe, Shuri eventually takes over the mantle of Black Panther from her brother. During an interview with ComicBook.com, Wright considered the possibility of that happening in the films.

"If that's meant to happen then why not?" Wright said. "But my thing is: where we meet her now in the Marvel Universe, she's young, she's preparing, she's just into technology, she's creating, she's just really fun and really focused on that. So, if that's meant to happen, then cool, but at the moments, hey, man, Chadwick [Boseman] is killing as Black Panther! I'm happy to help out with the gadgets for now. If that's meant to be, it'll be, but he's amazing as Black Panther."

Black Panther currently has a ComicBook.com User Anticipation Rating of 4.17 out of 5, making it the second most anticipated upcoming comic book movie among ComicBook.com Users.
