The poster has gone down badly with fans, who think it looks “poorly photoshopped”, “fan-made” and “fake”. See a selection of their tweets below:

Seriously Marvel. You really need to hire some decent designers for your posters. This looks like bad fanart.

“Black Panther follows T’Challa who, after the death of his father, the King of Wakanda, returns home to the isolated, technologically advanced African nation to succeed to the throne and take his rightful place as king. But when a powerful old enemy reappears, T’Challa’s mettle as king—and Black Panther—is tested when he is drawn into a formidable conflict that puts the fate of Wakanda and the entire world at risk. 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.”
Directed by Creed‘s Ryan Coogler, Black Panther hits theaters on February 16, 2018.
