Director Ryan Coogler who has previously helmed films like Creed and Fruitvale Station is working with Marvel for the first time.

Michael B Jordan who essays the antagonistic role of Eric Killmonger in Black Panther was also present at the conference. In the trailer, he dons a brown suit as compared to Chadwick's black one and seems to match up to T'Challa's physical strength. Marvel has often been criticised for its thinly sketched villains, will Coogler be able to finally give fans a formidable villain with Jordan?
