"Black Panther" footage of Marvel's latest superhero installment received a standing ovation during Comic-Con. You had to be there in San Diego on Saturday to see it to believe it because the clip isn't online — not yet anyway.

The movie takes place after "Captain America: Civil War," when the Black Panther played by Chadwick Boseman was introduced to Marvel movie fans. The cast was introduced during the convention over the weekend, including movie vet Michael B. Jordan, who plays Boseman adversary Erik Killmonger, noted Entertainment Weekly.

What thrilled fans was an action scene that also includes Andy Serkis and Academy Award winner Lupita Nyong'o.

"The three citizens of Wakanda are there to intercept a sketchy deal that's about to go down between Klaue and Everett K. Ross (Martin Freeman)," said Polycon.com’s Julia Alexander. "Ross, a Deputy Task Force Commander of the Joint Counter Terrorist Center, was first introduced in 'Captain America: Civil War' and had a great deal to do with Black Panther.”

"Before the deal between the two can be intercepted, however, things get chaotic and T'Challa (Boseman), Okoye and Nakia find themselves in a series of hand-to-hand fights. It's hard to convey just how incredibly well shot this scene is. Each fighter has their own distinct style and that is evident even in their rapid, choreographed movements on screen," said Alexander.

Borys Kit and Mia Galuppo of The Hollywood Reporter said the clip met with wild approval from the fans attending Comic-Con.

"There were shots of other scenes, including a close-up look at how 'Black Panther' costume comes together with new technology," said Kit and Galuppo. "There was also a big car chase through a busy street, plus several stand-offs with Panther's antagonist, Killmonger, played by Michael B. Jordan. The footage had the entirety of Hall H on their feet, whooping and hollering and whistling."

Some fans were disappointed the clip wasn’t also shown online, leaving them waiting until the film's opening on Feb. 16 next year.
