Being a part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe seems to be as exciting as fans have thought. Chadwick Boseman first got to experience the MCU's hype when the actor brought the Black Panther in the franchise last year. Now, the star has revealed his reaction to the trailer for his Black Panther movie, and fans will find it totally relatable.
Recently, Boseman appeared on Jimmy Kimmel Live! to talk about his current projects. The actor's Marvel films got their fair share of coverage as Boseman was asked about Black Panther. When questioned about the standalone's sleek trailer, Boseman said he had to turn his phone off when the video went live to stay sane
"It was so exciting," Boseman said. "I literally, for like three minutes, was like, 'oh my gosh.' Just staring at the screen and then I cut my phone off because it was too much stimulation."
Black Panther may not house the hero's first outing, but it does show fans a much-anticipated side of the hero. Captain America: Civil War saw T'Challa assume the Black Panther mantle for good after his father was murdered. The film then ended with T'Challa returning to Wakanda with Captain America's team in tow. Black Panther will pick up after the events of Civil War and follow T'Challa as he comes to terms with his new kingly status.
Boseman is right to be excited about Black Panther's overwhelming response, and he is not the only person feeling the hype. Lupita Nyong'o shared her interesting reaction to the Black Panther trailer last week with Access Hollywood.
"I mean, it's really exciting," Nyong'o explained, "and I was a part of it of course. There's still being a lot of work done on it and we have to deliver something as good as that trailer, but that trailer was very encouraging. It's exciting. It's so empowering. I couldn't help but twerk as I watched it."
Boseman may not have twerked to Marvel's trailer, but fans can assume he got down to Black Panther in his own way. The actor is currently busy filming his bit on Avengers: Infinity War, so the actor may share even more of his excitement when its first trailer drops.
After the events of Marvel's Captain America: Civil War, King T'Challa returns home to the reclusive, technologically advanced African nation of Wakanda to serve as his country's new leader. However, T'Challa soon finds that he is challenged for the throne from factions within his own country. When two foes conspire to destroy Wakanda, the hero known as Black Panther must team up with C.I.A. agent Everett K. Ross and members of the Dora Milaje, Wakanadan special forces, to prevent Wakanda from being dragged into a world war.
The film stars Chadwick Boseman (Get on Up), Michael B. Jordan (Creed), Lupita Nyong'o (Star Wars: The Force Awakens), Danai Gurira (The Walking Dead), Martin Freeman (Sherlock), Daniel Kaluuya (Get Out), with Angela Bassett (American Horror Story), with Forest Whitaker (Rogue One: A Star Wars Story), and Andy Serkis (Avengers: Age of Ultron).
