Although "Black Panther" was able to outperform "Captain America: Civil War" in terms of pre-ticket sales, Marvel does not expect the film to open as high as "Captain America: Civil War". He debuted as T'Challa in "Captain America: Civil War", which opened to an impressive $179 million when it arrived in theaters in May 2016.
In their first comics incarnation, the Dora Milaje were introduced as a group of potential wives chosen by community leaders from various tribes throughout Wakanda. Then, there's Nakia (Lupita Nyong'o), who "challenges tradition". Faced with treachery and danger, the young king must rally his allies and release the full power of Black Panther to defeat his foes and secure the safety of his people and their way of life. That's where their personal conflict comes from, even though they are essentially on the same side in the name of their king. The new clips also demonstrate the fighting style of the Dora Milaje while teasing their battle with T'Challa's rival, Erik "Killmonger" Stevens (Michael B. Jordan).
Fandango said a survey of more than 8,000 moviegoers showed that "Black Panther" was voted as one of the year's top two most anticipated movies, ranking second to Disney-Marvel's "Avengers: Infinity War", which includes numerous "Black Panther" characters, and Boseman was voted as the most anticipated comic book hero in a standalone movie. Within the context of the film, it's been revealed that Nakia was once T'Challa's lover, but it's unclear how that relationship will play out onscreen.
