Patty Jenkins reacts to the freshly released Black Panther trailer, saying that it gave her the chills. Marvel Studios dropped the second preview for the Chadwick Baseman-led film on Monday, ahead of the theatrical release of this fall's Thor: Ragnarok (which opens in a couple of weeks). Having said that, everyone welcomed the latest sneak peek which was an instant hit for a lot of fans, apparently including DC filmmaker Jenkins.
The 46-year-old, having directed one of the biggest superhero films of all time in Wonder Woman, obviously knows a thing or two about making an excellent movie. And the Black Panther trailer passing the Jenkins test says a lot about the quality of the new clip and the huge potential that it has to become one of the most different and even important comic book movies not just under the Marvel banner but with the whole genre as well.
Taking it to her official Twitter account, Jenkins retweeted the Black Panther trailer with the caption: "Damn. This looks really great and powerful. Gave me chills! Can't wait to see it." Obviously, having ties with DC and its own film franchise, fans quickly flocked the post. But instead of the usual DC vs. Marvel debate that has been all over the internet since both comic book companies ventured into making films, most of the commenters perpetuated the filmmaker's opinion and agreed that people can like both properties.

You can remember that when the first trailer for Black Panther dropped back in summer, DC Films president Geoff Johns also took it to his social media to express his thoughts on the clip, saying that he is impressed by it. Meanwhile, on the flipside, a lot of Marvel personalities have openly praised Jenkins and Gal Gadot for making such a well-crafted and brilliantly done film in Wonder Woman. This only proves that despite the clash in opinions among fans regarding the supposed DC and Marvel rivalry, the people who are actually involved with the organizations have nothing but respect and admiration for each other.
Meanwhile, as we all look forward to what Black Panther will add to the comic book film spectrum, Jenkins has her sights set on directing Wonder Woman 2 set to roll out in December 2019. Not much is known regarding its narrative but word has it that like its predecessor, it will once again be a period piece, this time, however, Diana's adventure will bring her to the Cold War era. Filming is expected to kickstart sometime in the summer of 2018.
