In an episode where the show’s main character is an alien and his nemesis is a black-eyed demon, we get to witness the journey of an intergalactic superhero.
The series stars Samuel L. Jackson as the Black Panther, a warrior who, along with his ally, T’Challa, is on a mission to rescue the world from an evil that threatens to destroy it.
We’re also treated to a montage of all the characters in the Black Panthers costume in different locations around the world.
Jackson, who is known for playing the role of Captain America in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, made it clear that he and the rest of the Black-and the White team were very excited to get back to the world of the black panthers and what they are trying to do.
“We’re very excited about the show.
I don’t think there’s any other show in the world where I get to do that much of an arc, in a world where we have so much history and so much legacy to build on,” he said.
“It’s very exciting to be able to go back to my roots and do something that is so iconic.”
The Black Panther’s costume is an homage to the black masks that the Black Liberation Army (BLA) used to hide their identities and hide from the U.S. government in the 1960s.
The masks were used to protect the Black community in the South.
“When I first read the script, I was like, I can’t wait to see what happens in the show,” said Jackson.
“I love the idea of these people being in a suit, I love the mask, I want to be in it.”
The new season of the series also picks up where the previous season left off.
Jackson will be reprising his role as the leader of the team, while a cast that includes Samuel Lacey as the new Black Panther.
“I think this season, the Black Man is very important,” said the actor.
“He is a person that we’ve seen time and time again in all of the different incarnations of the characters that he’s been on the show, so I think he’s going to be very important to all of these characters moving forward.”

He is joined by Black Panther ally and former friend D’Angelo, as well as his partner D’Jimmi, and Black Panther leader and current ally of the group, Kamala Khan.
The new Black Panthers will also be joined by the villainous and very well-known, Dr. Octopus.
“The thing about these characters is, it’s really about their history and what makes them different from us,” said actor Jesse Lacey, who played the role in the past.
“The history of the people who were on the Black Team, it really is about who is the Black King.”
“It’s not a show about the black superhero, it is a show that’s all about the Black Power.
And that’s what I really love about this show,” added Jackson.
The Black Panthers are also joined by a young woman who is a former member of the UPA (United Arab Party), who is now part of the Resistance.
She is voiced by Sharlto Copley.
“I love playing a female character who’s not just the female version of the character, who’s just more of an outsider,” said Copleyl, who plays the character Black Widow.
“This is the most female-fronted superhero show in history.
And I think we all are really proud of that.”
