Entertainment Weekly‘s got the first look at Black Panther for its annual Comic-Con issue, and yes: It. Is. Spectacular.
On the cover we’ve got Michael B. Jordan (Erik Killmonger), Chadwick Boseman (T’Challa) and Lupita Nyong’o (Nakia) in all their powerful, Black excellence. But they’re not the only ones serving looks—you can catch the rest of the cast flexing below.
Before you check those photos, though, a couple fun facts we gathered from EW.
1 The Black Panther storyline is far from simple. Prepare to be on the edge of your seat. “In this movie, a lot like politics, it’s a little tricky to define who’s [a good guy],” director and co-writer Ryan Coogler tells EW. “The film very much plays with those concepts, looking at conflicts and different motivations, and who’s with who.”
2 Executive producer Nate Moore calls the forthcoming Black Panther film “a cross between James Bond and The Godfather.” He goes on to describe it as “a big, operatic family drama centered on a world of international espionage,” and hopes for the outcome to be “the best of both worlds.”
