'Black Panther': First Look At Killmonger's Golden Jaguar Suit

T'Challa won't be the only one wearing a cat-themed super-powered suit in Marvel's Black Panther.

The new Black Panther trailer offered fans their first look at Erik Killmonger (Michael B. Jordan) in his "Golden Jaguar" suit, which seemed to be a modified version of T'Challa's own Black Panther suit.

Take a look below.

Killmonger's version of the suit appears to have a gold weave worked into it, plus a jaguar pattern on the mask. It's unclear what powers this suit has, though the trailer shows that Killmonger is capable of apparently hiding the suit using some kind of hologram while it is on his body.

Killmonger's Golden Jaguar suit means that Black Panther is likely to feature a climax that continues Marvel's reliance on doppelganger villains (think Iron Man vs. Iron Monger or Hulk vs. Abomination), as Killmonger in his Golden Jaguar suit takes on Black Panther in his "glow" suit.
