Following the tragic death of his father, crown prince T’Challah (Chadwick Boseman) returns to the kingdom of Wakanda to take the throne. T’Challah’s plans to continue his father’s legacy are disrupted by the arrival of a challenger, Erik Killmonger, who intends to reveal Wakanda’s concealed technological utopia to the world and disrupt long-held peace. Fearlessly directed by Ryan Coogler (Fruitvale Station, Creed), Black Panther is the first Marvel film to feature a predominantly black cast, pointing to a new age of superhero films both behind and in front of the camera.
