Black Panther follows T’Challa (Chadwick Boseman) who, after the events of ‘Captain America: Civil War,’ returns home to the isolated, technologically advanced African nation of Wakanda to take his place as King. However, when an old enemy reappears on the radar, T’Challa’s mettle as King and Black Panther is tested when he is drawn into a conflict that puts the entire fate of Wakanda and the world at risk.
Directed by Ryan Coogler (Creed) from a screenplay he co-wrote with Joe Robert Cole (The People v. O.J. Simpson: American Crime Story), Black Panther also stars Michael B. Jordan, Danai Gurira, Daniel Kaluuya, Andy Serkis, Martin Freeman, Academy Award-nominee Angela Bassett and Academy Award-winners Lupita Nyong’o and Forest Whitaker.
Black Panther is slated to open on February 16, 2018.
