Five weeks from today the next MCU film, Black Panther, hits theaters, and Marvel has released this awesome new featurette that takes you behind the scenes with the various warriors from the fictional African nation of Wakanda.

Of course the big focus is on the special all-female fighting force known as the Dora Milaje, led by Danai Gurira's Okoye. The Walking Dead actress is all over this featurette, talking about her character and the badass ladies she leads into battle. The whole thing, of course, culminates in that 360 shot of Black Panther flipping from one car to the other. We just don't get tired of that shot, do we?

See below for the full studio details on the film and you can get your tickets now for the film opening on February 16.

Marvel Studios’ “Black Panther” follows T’Challa 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.

“Black Panther” stars Chadwick Boseman, Michael B. Jordan, Lupita Nyong’o, Danai Gurira, Martin Freeman, Daniel Kaluuya, Letitia Wright, Winston Duke, with Angela Bassett, with Forest Whitaker, and Andy Serkis.

The film is directed by Ryan Coogler and produced by Kevin Feige with Louis D’Esposito, Victoria Alonso, Nate Moore, Jeffrey Chernov and Stan Lee serving as executive producers. Ryan Coogler & Joe Robert Cole wrote the screenplay.
