Marvel Studios has released a new TV spot detailing the hatred Michael B. Jordan’s Erik Killmonger holds towards Chadwick Boseman’s King T’Challa in the upcoming and highly-anticipated Black Panther movie.

The 30 second video shows why Killmonger wants to invade Wakanda after his expulsion: for T’Challa’s “secrets” and “weapons.” One of these is presumably the technology that allows T’Challa to wear the Black Panther suit, because later on we glimpse Killmonger wearing his gold version of the suit and engaging the Avenger in battle.
The brief clip doesn’t show too much new footage but we do see more of the vibrant and colorful kingdom and the warrior known as M’Buku (Winston Duke), as well as Killmonger breaking Ulysses Klaue (Andy Serkis) out so that they can continue their war on the African nation, which is known for its vibranium and advanced technology in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
Directed by Ryan Coogler from a script he wrote with Joe Robert Cole, Black Panther stars Chadwick Boseman as T’Challa, Michael B. Jordan as Erik Killmonger, Lupita Nyong’o as Nakia, Daniel Kaluuya as W’Kabi, Letitia Wright as Shuri, Danai Gurira as Okoye, Angela Bassett as Ramonda, Martin Freeman as Everett K. Ross, Andy Serkis as Ulysses Klaue, Winston Duke as M’Baku and Forest Whitaker as Zuri. The Marvel Studio film arrives in theaters on Feb. 16.
