For a long time, speculations of Black Panther's appearance in "Avengers: Age of Ultron" have been making the rounds. It is assumed that the studio will introduce Marvel's new superhero in the movie and set the ground for his 2017's standalone movie. Several media outlets are now speculating that the recently released trailer dropped the hint of superhero's presence in "Avengers: Age of Ultron."

Just two days ago, Marvel released the second trailer of "Avengers: Age of Ultron." The teaser gave a glimpse of the movie, dropping several hints about what to expect. According to Screen Rant, the latest promo video hints at "Black Panther-related plot elements that will be featured in the film.

In the video below, 0:54 mark gives a glimpse of Andy Serkis' character Ulysses Klaw. Klaw happens to be Black Panther's enemy, a human physicist. The zoomed in look at the actor's character shows that he is wearing a "claw necklace."

Elaborating plot elements, the website notes the common link between Black Panther, Claw and Avengers is a metal called vibranium. The substance is rare and is found in particular parts of Black Panther's country Wakanda in Africa.

The metallic element seems to be an important substance providing strength to the heroes and villains. As noted by the website, Ultron will use a shell made out of the metal in the movie. Meanwhile, fans know that the movie has filmed several scenes in African city Johannesburg.

The publication goes on to claim that "Avengers: Age of Ultron" will feature Wakanda itself. At 0.33 mark in the video, a mysterious woman of African origin can be seen. When zoomed in at the shot, she can be seen wearing an African cloak. It is speculated that the woman is a "member of Black Panther's personal security detail, the Dora Milaje." Comic Book and Comic Book Movie is speculating the same. The aforementioned website suggests that the cave the woman is standing in could be a vibranium cave. At the same time, Comic Book suggests the possibility of the woman being T'Challa's sister and female Black Panther Shuri.

Some other clues hinting at Black Panther's presence include the shot showing South African Police force and South African restaurant chain called Nyama & Chips. It is the place where Hulk and Iron Man get into a major fight after Hulk loses control.

Evidence of Black Panther in "Avengers: Age of Ultron" was first seen in the trailer released in October, 2014 featuring Andy Serkis' character. At the same time, several shots from Johannesburg sparked the speculation. Captain America's broken shield provided final evidence of the Black Panther's appearance in the movie. The shield is made up of vibranium metal and the best person to help him repair his ultimate weapon is Black Panther.

"Avengers: Age of Ultron" stars Chris Hemsworth, Chris Evans, Robert Downey Jr., Jeremy Renner, Scarlet Johansson, Elizabeth Olsen and more. The movie hits the theatres on May 1, 2015. Watch the trailer videos below.
