Chadwick Boseman made his triumphant debut as T'Challa in Captain America: Civil War and stole the show in nearly every scene he was involved in. He quickly established Black Panther as a new fan-favorite character, which is why it is no surprise that Marvel had already announced he would get his own film ahead of then. Black Panther will kick off the 2018 year for Marvel Studios and be the final standalone Marvel Cinematic Universe film before the Avengers battle Thanos on the big screen.
While fans are still over a year away from seeing either of these events, that means it is time for Marvel to kick them into production. Black Panther began filming late last week and has already resulted in set photos emerging online, while Avengers: Infinity War actually begins filming today. With production underway, executive producer Louis D'Esposito has unveiled a new logo for T'Challa's solo film, too.
D'Esposito is currently on set of Black Panther and took to Twitter to show fans what he is up to. In doing so, he has revealed a new logo for the film that is significantly different than the previously-released design. Instead of a large font that has a regalness to it, the new logo is much simpler, but still embodies the right look for Wakanda.

Marvel has recently developed a pattern of changing the logos for their films multiple times throughout the various stages of development. For instance, Doctor Strange had three different logos before it hit theaters. Marvel typically has a clean design for announcements, then reveals what is closer to their final design during production, only to then reveal the official final logo once marketing begins. The final logo for Black Panther should be similar to this newly-revealed one, but perhaps the color, lettering, or formatting will be changed later on.
There is not much to take away from the new logo design in this instance, unlike how the new logo for Thor: Ragnarok ditched the apocalyptic feel for an '80s arcade game look. With D'Esposito sharing a quick look from the set of Black Panther and teasing his visit to the set of Infinity War later today, he very well could provide fans with a behind-the-scenes look at Marvel's biggest film yet. Stay tuned to Screen Rant for potential updates from D'Esposito later on - but for now get used to the newest logo for Marvel's Ryan Coogler (Creed) directed superhero flick.
