Marvel has unleashed 11 new posters for its upcoming Black Panther movie, giving us a close-up look at the characters from director Ryan Coogler’s superhero movie.

Black Panther will take us to the technologically advanced African kingdom of Wakanda, now ruled by King T’Challa (Chadwick Boseman), aka Black Panther, following the death of his father in Captain America: Civil War. We will also be introduced to a slew of new characters as well as a few returning faces for the hotly anticipated Marvel Cinematic Universe film.

Starring alongside Boseman (and in order of the posters) is Michael B. Jordan as Wakanda exile and the film’s main villain Erik Killmonger; Lupita Nyong'o as T'Challa's former love Nakia, an undercover operative of the Dora Milaje; Danai Gurira as the head of the Dora Milaje, Okoye; Winston Duke as M'Baku, the powerful and ruthless leader of the Jabari, a mountain tribe against T'Challa’s rule as king; Daniel Kaluuya as W'Kabi, T'Challa’s BFF and the head of security of the Border Tribe, Wakanda’s first line of defense; Angela Bassett as T’Challa’s mother, Ramonda; Letitia Wright as T’Challa’s younger sister Shuri, who designs all the advanced tech; Andy Serkis as arms dealer Ulysses Klaue/Klaw from Age of Ultron; Forest Whitaker as Zuri, a statesman and keeper of the Heart-Shaped Herb; and Martin Freeman as Civil War's Joint Counter Terrorism Center’s Everett Ross.

Black Panther will claw its way into movie theaters on Feb. 16, 2018.
