Trailer Time: Black Panther

One of the good things about having an extended cinematic universe is that you can open the door to some very interesting story elements.
I know there were a number of complaints about introducing both Spider-Man and Black Panther in Captain America: Civil War in order to launch their own film series. But this is actually a plus for the characters.
Having been introduced to the character in the previous film, I am now horribly intrigued by this movie. I especially love the thematic elements about the tension between morality and leadership. The voice in the trailer seems to be under the Machiavellian philosophy that it is better to be feared than loved and that a good man cannot be a good king. Since T'Challa is a good man, he will have to prove the opposite to be true.
I also got a big kick out of the opening scene of the trailer being a reunion of Bilbo and Gollum.
