The kingdom reveals itself via Twitter.

Wakanda has revealed itself to the outside wold — and, appropriately enough for 2017, it's done so via Twitter.

Character posters for next year's Black Panther have debuted across multiple accounts on Twitter this morning, showcasing the ruling class of Marvel's fictional African nation, along with some of the supporting players from director Ryan Coogler's movie. The tweets — many of the first wave of which featured the words "Wakanda Forever" — for the most part don't name the characters but offer some sense of how they relate to the country and hero at the center of the movie.

Marvel Studios opens Black Panther on Feb. 16, 2018.
