Marvel Studios’ debuted their first Black Panther poster, and reception has been a bit divided, to say the least. Artist BossLogic decided to implement a few tweaks.
The original poster featured T’Challa (played by Chadwick Boseman) sitting on a Wakandan throne with his costume on but his mask off. For his BossLogic didn’t recreate the wheel, but the changes make a big impact.
First, he replaced Panther’s head with a masked version. Then he took the bronze and gold tones of the background and washed those over Panther and his throne to a much greater degree. Then instead of having Panther’s left hand on the throne, he added an actual black panther, who is being petted by T’Challa.
It’s amazing what a few changes can do, and most will agree that this version, including the actual panther, is the better of the two.
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
