With a $700 million domestic box-office tally and a serious Oscar campaign on the horizon, Black Panther is the year’s biggest movie. Not content to rest on his regal laurels, however, the famed Marvel hero will soon be making the transition to the small screen — and we have his newest venture’s exciting first trailer.
Marvel’s Avengers: Black Panther’s Quest will technically be the fifth season of Disney XD’s popular Avengers Assemble series, but per its title, it’ll focus squarely on the Wakandan king as he embarks on a series of adventures with sister and trusted tech-whiz companion Shuri by his side.
The animated series will pit Black Panther against a collection of old and new foes, all as it depicts his struggle to balance his responsibilities to his homeland and his newfound duties as a member of the Avengers. That tension between protecting his people and using his powers for global good will reportedly be the heart of the show, although as evidenced by its first promo, Marvel’s latest TV effort will also be defined by considerable action and humor. And given that it’s a continuation of a long-running show about Earth’s Mightiest Heroes, prepare to see some appearances from other familiar faces as well, including (as seen above) Iron Man and Captain America.
Marvel’s Avengers: Black Panther’s Quest premieres on Disney XD on Sept. 23 at 9 p.m. ET/PT.
