The King’s Wife just unveiled a new poster for Viola Davis’ film. Sony is excited for people to see this story. Gina Prince Blythewood is directing the film and from CinemaCon the interest The King’s Wife has only increased. Nanisca is not exactly a historical role that the general public would be familiar with. But popular culture has sampled a lot when it comes to the Kingdom of Dahomey. More trailers and teasers will continue to roll out until the fall release. The Internet is clearly ready to see Davis wave around a sword alongside a bunch of huge names. Check out the newest image for yourself here.
“I’ve never had a role like this before. It’s transformative,” Davis told Vanity Fair. “And to be a producer on it, and to know that I had a hand in bringing it about … I knew what it would mean for us as black people. Something that’s never been done before. And what it would mean for black women sitting in this cinema. The responsibility is too great.”

“We didn’t want to show them as just one thing – miserable women who killed,” explained director Gina Prince-Bythewood. “They also laughed and loved and cried. We wanted to show their full humanity, not just the cool part that would look good in a trailer.”
Previously, IndieWire spoke to Prince Blythewood about the prospect of tackling more mature stories. She told the publication that her performance at Silver and Black The film would be a more adult take on Black Cat and Silver Sable. But now fans are left wondering what could have been.
“I wanted to be edgier than some of the Marvel movies,” he began. “It was a matter of how far I could take it in this Marvel universe.”
“‘Silver & Black’ put me in the conversation,” Prince-Bythewood continued. “I was one of those two women that people go to for these big movies. I knew what kind of movies Skydance was making. It was exciting and nerve-wracking. I knew I loved this project, partly because I could do whatever I wanted make of the other movie: an edgy superhero movie with two women.’
Davis co-stars alongside Lashana Lynch, John Boyega, Adrienne Warren, Sheila Atim, Jayme Lawson and Hero Fiennes Tiffin. The King’s Wife rolls into theaters on September 16.
