Black Panther is the second-most anticipated film of 2018, polling behind Marvel’s Avengers: Infinity War in a Fandango survey of 8,000 moviegoers. Star Chadwick Boseman’s take on the King of Wakanda was also voted most anticipated comic book hero, and Michael B. Jordan’s Eric Killmonger is one of the most anticipated screen villains of the year.

The new Black Panther TV spot features a collaboration between Lamar and acclaimed rapper Vince Staples (see "New 'Black Panther' TV Spot").
