Chadwick Boseman stars in the ad with Letitia Wright who plays his sister Shuri and Janeshia Adams-Ginyard, Marija Abney and Zola Williams, who play three members of the Dora Milaje team of Wakandan special forces. According to reports, Black Panther sold more tadvance tickets than Marvel's Captain America: Civil War with $179 million in sales during its 2016 opening. When two foes conspire to destroy Wakanda, the hero known as Black Panther must team up with C.I.A. agent Everett K.

"Black Panther" arrives in theaters on February 16. The special project vehicle features include a bulletproof chassis, a Black Panther mask inlay on the hood, a pulsating underbody glow and panther's claw-inspired side view mirrors.
