This is Wakanda, an African nation invisible to the naked eye, protected by the power culled from an indigenous stone called Vibranium. This stone not only has the ability to heal wounds in record time, but also forms the basis of all weapons, clothing and the very existence of Wakanda and its citizens. The 18th entry in Marvel’s ever-expanding cinematic universe (MCU), Black Panther is the first feature-length adaptation of Stan Lee and Jack Kirby’s superhero we first glimpsed in Captain America: Civil War.
After his father is killed in a terrorist attack, Prince T’Challa (Chadwick Boseman) must return home to Wakanda to take his rightful place as King. No sooner does he arrive that he finds himself in the middle of multiple conflicts when old and new enemies challenge him for the crown and threaten to take Wakanda into a catastrophic world war.
