With every new Black Panther clip released, it becomes even more clear that this is a Marvel Cinematic Universe movie like no other. The latest look at the movie shows just how futuristic the technology T’Challah (Chadwick Boseman) has access to is. Based on this small clip alone, it puts most of the toys the Avengers have to shame.
In the video, T’Challah’s sister Shuri (Letitia Wright) springs into action in what must be the Black Panther’s control center. With her brother in need, she manages to control a car from a remote location, allowing him to tail the bad guys. Beyond that, every bullet shot at the Panther, she says, builds up the hero’s kinetic energy. He’s able to use that energy to put a stop to the villains once and for all, before escaping in the car being driven by his sister.
While T’Challah may be the one on the front lines, it’s clear that Shuri is the brains of the operation. “She’s T’Challa’s Q,” director Ryan Coogler tells TotalFilm (via GamesRadar), comparing the hero to James Bond. “She’s by his side with the technology he needs. The way she helps him is really cool.”
It remains to be seen how much more technology Shuri will unveil in the movie. At this rate, though, perhaps the Avengers should hire her to redesign pretty much everything they do. Black Panther lands in theaters on February 16.
