Those are the two competing forces at play between the warriors of Wakanda in this new Black Panther featurette from Marvel Studios. Neither of these woman have worked on a Marvel movie before, and this just goes to show you how important it is that new talents be brought in to even the most established franchises to bring in some new style and perspective.

The heroic adventure opens on February 16, which is part of the four-day President's Day holiday weekend and adjacent to Valentine's Day which falls on a Wednesday this year, per Deadline. Boseman debuted as Black Panther on the big screen a year ago in Captain America: Civil War.

Marvelous news! And here's more:What's the story, Black Panther?

Earlier this week, ticket site Fandango reported that "Black Panther" was able to set Marvel pre-sales record for its first 24 hours.

Along with Nyong'o, Black Panther stars Chadwick Boseman, who returns as T'Challa or Black Panther, ruler of Wakanda, a fictional African nation. "It's one of the biggest and most anticipated movies to ever open in the month of February, and its trailers have electrified the internet". Black Panther the movie, directed by Ryan Coogler, will be the first Marvel movie with a predominately black cast. Fans, also, seem excited to finally spend time in Wakanda on screen, though we saw it ever so briefly at the end of Civil War, when Captain America (Chris Evans) put Bucky (Sebastian Stan) on ice. Obviously, Nyong'o is going to get tickets some other way.

Academy Award victor Lupita Nyong'o said she cannot get tickets to the Los Angeles world premiere of Black Panther - a movie that she is starring in - because the movie has experienced record-breaking pre-sales and she couldn't nab any tickets in time.
