A fresh batch of concept art for Marvel's upcoming Black Panther movie has made its way online thanks to some fans who snapped some screenshots from the Phase 3 sneak peek included in yesterday's worldwide release of Doctor Strange on Digital HD.

Filming on director Ryan Coogler's superhero movie starring Chadwick Boseman in the titular role is currently underway in Atlanta, and thanks to the pieces of concept art we can now take a figurative stroll through the streets of Wakanda, the technologically advanced African nation ruled by King T'Challa (Boseman). If I'm not mistaken, the third image in the gallery below is that of a Vibranium mine, out of which Cap's shield is made.

No clue as to whether we'll actually get to see each of these locations on screen when Black Panther's solo movie opens on Feb. 16, 2018 (a year from tomorrow!), but either way it's really cool to have a peek at T'Challa's world. After seeing the concept art, I want to move there.

Black Panther follows T'Challa, who, after the events of Captain America: Civil War, returns home to the isolated, technologically advanced African nation of Wakanda to take his place as King. However, when an old enemy reappears on the radar, T'Challa's mettle as King and Black Panther is tested when he is drawn into a conflict that puts the entire fate of Wakanda and the world at risk.

Black Panther also stars Michael B. Jordan as Erik Killmonger, Lupita Nyong'o as Nakia, Danai Gurira as Okoye, Winston Duke as M'Baku/Man-Ape, Andy Serkis as Ulysses Klaue/Klaw, Forest Whitaker as Zuri, Martin Freeman as Everett Ross, Florence Kasumba as Ayo, Daniel Kaluuya as W'Kabi, Angela Bassett as Ramonda, Sterling K. Brown as N’Jobu, Atandwa Kani as Young T'Chaka and Letitia Wright and Phylicia Rashad in undisclosed roles.
