Marshall Trailer

Chadwick Boseman has already played a few significant figures from pop culture history with solid performances as the color barrier-breaking Jackie Robinson in 42 and the Godfather of Soul, James Brown, in Get On Up. Now he’s playing one of the most significant figures in legal and United States history in Marshall.

The courtroom drama sees Chadwick Boseman as Thurgood Marshall, long before he would change the course of American history by becoming the first black United States Supreme Court Justice leading the charge in the case of Brown v. Board of Education. The first trailer has just arrived to showcase the film, and it’s being sold almost as a superhero origin story for the the man from our history books.
