The next film in Marvel Cinematic Universe, Black Panther, has got everybody on their toes. Marvel does know how to keep fans' interest alive before the flagship movie Avengers: Infinity War finally hits theaters. After the God of Thunder wowed us with Thor: Ragnarok, now it is the King of Wakanda's turn to make us bow down before him. If the trailer wasn't enough, now Marvel has released a few exciting character-based posters of the film complete with costumes that has made the wait for Black Panther difficult.

The first poster shows the T'Challa (Chadwick Boseman) himself looking down at his claws, a little doubtfully, probably trying to deal with the enormous responsibility that has been thrust to his young shoulders. "His father's legacy", the caption says.

The second poster shows Michael B. Jordan as Erik Killmonger, the would-be usurper wanting to overthrow T'Challa and take the throne for himself. Jordan clearly looks the part with his dreadlocks

Lupita Nyong'o shines as Nakia, T'Challa's former lover and a member of Dora Milaje, all-girl female special forces group of Wakanda.

This poster is all about Okoye, the head of Dora Milaje. Played by The Walking Dead actor Danai Gurira, Okoye is a key ally of the king. The skills Danai learned whilst working on The Walking Dead clearly will be useful here.

Caption 5: This poster shows the look of M'Baku, leader of a tribe who are fiercely opposed to T'Challa being the king. In the comics, the character is also called Man-Ape, so the character has been reworked a little to worship gorilla gods.

Daniel Kaluuya portrays W'Kabi, head of security and best friend of Black Panther. He is a person T'Challa can totally rely upon.

American Horror Story actor Angela Bassett plays the king's mother and the poster does a fine job in depicting the fear for her son's safety with all the external threats closing in on him.

Letitia Wright looks unfazed as she plays T'Challa's sister, Shuri. Shuri is a technocrat and designs technologies that are far beyond the rest of the world and also quite different since both were independently developed.

Andy Serkis may be known as the best motion-capture actor in the world, but few have witnessed his superb acting skills when he is not covered by CGI. He plays a gangster and an ally of Killmonger and thus an enemy to the king. Not for nothing Serkis has compared his character to Osama Bin Laden.

Forest Whitaker plays Zuri, a statesman and a religious and a spiritual figure in Wakanda. He has been described by Whitaker himself as "Black Panther's version of Obi-Wan Kenobi"
