Fans have been eagerly awaiting the arrival of pre-sale tickets for Marvel Studios’ upcoming film, Black Panther. Apparently, the wait is finally almost over.
As it turns out, Marvel just so happens to be debuting a new spot during the College Football Playoff National Championship this upcoming Monday.
Producer and curator of the Black Panther soundtrack, Kendrick Lamar, will also be performing during the Championship’s halftime show. While it would be a smart business decision, it’s not confirmed if Lamar’s performance and the TV spot are connected.
Monday’s game will clearly have a bunch of marketing for Black Panther. It’s safe to assume that pre-sale tickets will be made available for purchase after the spot airs or after the game itself concludes.
Marvel Studios’ Black Panther follows T’Challa (Boseman) who, after the death of his father, the King of Wakanda, returns home to the isolated, technologically advanced African nation to succeed to the throne and take his rightful place as king. But when a powerful old enemy reappears, T’Challa’s mettle as king—and Black Panther—is tested when he is drawn into a formidable conflict that puts the fate of Wakanda and the entire world at risk. Faced with treachery and danger, the young king must rally his allies and release the full power of Black Panther to defeat his foes and secure the safety of his people and their way of life.
Directed by Ryan Coogler, the film stars Chadwick Boseman, Michael B. Jordan, Lupita Nyong’o, Danai Gurira, Martin Freeman, Daniel Kaluuya, Letitia Wright, Winston Duke, Angela Bassett, Forest Whitaker, Andy Serkis, Florence Kasumba, John Kani and Sterling K. Brown.
Black Panther hits theaters on February 16, 2017.
