We’ve got something really great to look forward to at the end of this month as the fifth season of the Marvel’s Avengers animated series is going to be focusing on the current king of Wakanda. That’s right, Black Panther is going to be the star of the show, delving us deeper into the rich kingdom, and DisneyXD is going to be the perfect platform. T’Challa is definitely going to need to be on his A-game this season from the looks of the trailer and sneak peak recently released in promotion of the show.
Marvel’s Avengers: Black Panther’s Quest was originally announced to be coming this fall at SDCC this year. From the looks of the art that came along with Marvel’s press release, you can tell that the show will be pulling in a lot of familiar faces into the show. Iron Man, Captain America, and Shuri are easily the most recognizable faces. Then there’s a character who appears to be the White Wolf, as well as Killmonger, judging from the horned mask he’s wearing.
According to a quote from Marvel.com:
“In Marvel’s Avengers: Black Panther’s Quest, the Black Panther must decide his loyalties. Is he an Avenger first or King of Wakanda? As the mysterious Shadow Council rises to challenge Wakanda, T’Challa teams up with his sister Shuri to go on missions that no other Avenger can. It’s a globe-trotting journey of espionage and mystery as old foes resurface and new friends are made. In the end, Black Panther must balance defending his home and stopping threats before they start. Is he a sword or shield? Only he can decide.”
Check out an awesome preview featuring a battle with Black Panther and Kraven The Hunter in the video below! The world’s finest hunter is just as cunning as ever, but he’s never faced an opponent like the Black Panther before. Wakanda is a whole different jungle, and if you plan on killing its king from the inside you may find out that you weren’t as prepared as you thought.
See how it all played out in this action-packed sneak peek!
