With many Marvel Studios fans tuning into the College Football National Championship strictly to see the new Black Panther trailer, the important question of "What time does it air?" needs answering.
The showdown between Georgia and Alabama will kick off and 8:17 pm ET on ABC -- meaning the Black Panther trailer can air any time after that. The most likely bet, however, is closer to 10:00 pm ET, around half time for the big game. It is a strategy previously used by ESPN as it premieres Disney movie trailers, such as Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 and Star Wars: The Last Jedi.
The half time show slated for the championship game is headlined by Kendrick Lamar. Lamar is also set to produce the official Black Panther soundtrack. Pairing the performance with the Black Panther trailer (likely to contain a Kendrick Lamar song as the San Diego Comic Con trailer did) is the strategy most likely to be applied.
Black Panther will ultimately arrive in theaters on February 16, 2018.
Avengers: Infinity War opens in theaters on May 4, 2018. Other upcoming Marvel Cinematic Universe movies include Black Panther on February 16, 2018, Ant-Man and the Wasp on July 6, 2018, Captain Marvel on March 8, 2019, the fourth Avengers movie on May 3, 2019, the sequel to Spider-Man: Homecoming on July 5, 2019, and Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 in 2020.
