The first teaser trailer for Marvel Studios' "Black Panther" was released on Saturday. 

The new clip sees Chadwick Boseman reprise the role of T'Challa, a.k.a. the Black Panther, the would-be ruler of the fictional African nation of Wakanda. He first portrayed the superhero in 2016's "Captain America: Civil War." 

The synopsis for the film reads: "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." 

Directed by Ryan Coogler ("Creed"), the newest Marvel offering also stars Danai Gurira of "The Walking Dead," Emmy-winning actress Lupita Nyong'o, Michael B. Jordan, and Andy Serkis. It is expected to hit cinemas in February.
