As Lexus dealers near Ponte Vedra Beach, FL, we’re excited to tell you that the 2018 Lexus LC 500 will be featured in Marvel Studios’ upcoming film, “Black Panther.” This thrilling announcement was made just as Comic-Con International: San Diego was set to open earlier this month.

The movie will pair the 2018 Lexus LC with its dynamic Black Panther character. Directed by Ryan Coogler, the film is expected to be in theaters on February 16, 2018. “Black Panther” picks up where the events of Marvel Studios’ other movie, “Captain America: Civil War,” left off. The film chronicles the adventures in T’Challa’s life as he returns home to the isolated yet technically advanced nation of Wakanda to become the country’s king.

“Marvel continuously captures audiences through charismatic characters and inspiring stories — the ideal fit for…[the Lexus brand’s] mission to craft amazing, engaging experiences,” said Brian Bolain general manager, Lexus marketing. “And the…aggressive styling, high performance, and agile handling [of the 2018 Lexus LC] are a perfect fit for the Black Panther’s quick, cat-like reflexes and superhuman feats. We’re excited to see the duo in action.”

“This campaign clicked from the get-go,” said Mindy Hamilton, Marvel’s SVP of global partnerships. “We have this bold, sophisticated hero stepping into the spotlight for the first time, and it’s been a blast to work with the Lexus team to build out a story that’ll familiarize fans with T’Challa as well as his advanced home nation of Wakanda.”
