Black Panther Chadwick Boseman

We're currently sixteen films deep into the Marvel Cinematic Universe, so the opportunity to explore an entirely new world with a ensemble of fresh characters is quite exciting. Ryan Coogler's upcoming BLACK PANTHER will finally take us to Wakanda, the secretive African nation briefly glimpsed in CAPTAIN AMERICA: CIVIL WAR, and give Chadwick Boseman the chance to shine after his scene-stealing appearance in CIVIL WAR. Entertainment Weekly has unveiled nine new character portraits which introduce us to the heroes and villains of Wakanda, including Chadwick Boseman as T'Challa/Black Panther, Lupita Nyong'o as Nakia, Danai Gurira as Okoye, Daniel Kaluuya as W'Kabi, Letitia Wright as Shuri, Forest Whitaker as Zuri, Angela Bassett as Ramonda, Michael B. Jordan as Erik Killmonger, and Winston Duke as M'Baku. Check 'em out!

The official synopsis for BLACK PANTHER:

“Black Panther” follows T’Challa 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.

BLACK PANTHER arrives February 16, 2018.
