Lexus has announced that the 2018 Lexus LC 500 will have a role in Marvel Studios’ “Black Panther” which is going to hit theaters on Feb. 16, 2018. Lexus and Marvel have announced a collaboration to pair the 2018 Lexus LC with Marvel’s dynamic Black Panther character in the new film.

Black Panther follows T’Challa, who, after the events of Marvel Studios’ “Captain America: Civil War,” returns home to the isolated, technologically advanced African nation of Wakanda to take his place as King.

“Marvel continuously captures audiences through charismatic characters and inspiring stories — the ideal fit for Lexus’ mission to craft amazing, engaging experiences,” said Brian Bolain general manager, Lexus marketing. “And the LC’s aggressive styling, high performance and agile handling 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.”
