Did you feel the ground shake during the first quarter of Game 4 of the NBA Finals? No, that wasn't the Cleveland Cavaliers (finally) stomping the Golden State Warriors. Rather, it was the sound of millions of people at home leaping to their feet and pumping their fists in the air at the first sight of the trailer for Black Panther.
Just hours after the first poster for the highly-anticipated Marvel film dropped online, we finally got our first real look at Chadwick Boseman, Michael B. Jordan, Lupita Nyong'o, Danai Gurira, Forest Whitaker and many, many more bringing the history-making all-Black superhero film to life. #BlackExcellence can hardly describe it, and it's an understatement to say Twitter was lit.
Not since Get Out have we seen anticipation this high for a film. We can't say yet how the full film will turn out (though we would bet money it will be amazing), but the teaser trailer proved that director Ryan Coogler and his cast know what audiences are hoping to see — from the performances to the costumes to the perfectly-fitting Run the Jewels track.
Check out the full trailer below, as well as Black Twitter's very best reactions. It's gonna be a loooooong wait until the film comes out in February 2018.
