The first ever teaser trailer for "Black Panther" has been released by Marvel just as DC's "Wonder Woman" celebrates the beginning of its second week. The upcoming film starring Chadwick Boseman will tell the story of the titular character, who first debuted in 2016's "Captain America: Civil War" as Iron Man's not-so-willing teammate. The character played an interesting role in the 2016 film, as at first, he was out to get Bucky Barnes after he learned that Barnes was responsible for setting off the bomb that killed Black Panther's father. Later on in the film, he granted Barnes asylum in Wakanda, where he underwent cryogenic sleep until a cure for his brainwashing was found.

In next year's Marvel offering, viewers will find that thereare two items of interest in Wakanda, in the form of Vibranium and the Heart-Shaped Herb.

Wakanda a massive source of Vibranium

The trailer begins with two men, Andy Serkis' Ulysses Klaue and Martin Freeman's Everett K. Ross (the only two white main characters in the film) in an interrogation room, where the subject of Wakanda's true being is being discussed. Serkis tells Freeman that Wakanda is the true "El Dorado" which many have been looking for throughout the years. A troubled T'Challa A.K.A. Black Panther looks on, troubled that someone from the outside world knows their secrets. According to Entertainment Weekly, Wakanda is home to "massive stores" of Vibranium, which MCU fans may recognize as the main material used to create Captain America's shield.

But that's not the only thing of importance in Wakanda.

The heart-shaped herb is a source of power

In a conversation with EW, Marvel boss Kevin Feige explained a particular scene in the "Black Panther" trailer [VIDEO], in which children are brewing some sort of liquid in a ritual. Feige explained, "People who read the comics would be familiar with the heart-shaped herb and the ceremonies that surround that. That’s partially spiritual."

Director Ryan Coogler also explained that the heart-shaped herb is basically the source of Black Panther's powers. It's some kind of an empowering substance that when consumed will improve one's physical capabilities. He explained, "[T-Challa] can fight hand-to-hand with Cap, who’s a supersoldier, so he has super strength and heightened instincts that give him his enhanced abilities. The heart-shaped herb is what Black Panthers over the generations would consume, once they earn the title, which gives them their physical edge."
