It’s officially 2018, and with it, we can wave goodbye to the films of 2017, and look to the coming year with optimism. Now that December is gone, February is one month that feels a hell of a lot closer, and with it, Marvel Studios will bring Black Panther, a film that is set to continue their shared universe in unprecedented style (well, that’s what we hope, at least).

We’ve seen a couple trailers for the film so far, as well as countless features. In fact, if you can believe it, we’ve already seen a fair amount of marketing for this movie. Now all that’s left is the inevitable hyperdrive in the final push that is set to hit in the last week or two leading up to its February 16 release.

But before that, the folks over at Marvel Studios thought it best to post a new image that celebrates the impending year.

Check it out down below!

In the photo, we see Chadwick Boseman’s T’Challa and Lupita Nyong’o’s Nakia dressed to impress and descending down a staircase to what’s sure to be some exclusive party. Of course, in films like this, a party is never just a party, and we’re sure they’re low-key working on some sort of mission that will propel things forward. What that mission could be, we can only guess.

What do you think of this new photo? Let us know down below!
