Marvel Studios has recently announced that they have started production on yet another film adaptation of a popular comic book franchise. This time around, it’s Black Panther. Astute fans will remember that the Black Panther character has already made his big screen debut as one of the main characters in Captain America: Civil War, but the film promises to put the king of Wakanda centerstage as the film comes out on February 16, 2018.
The Black Panther film will follow T’Challa after the events of Captain America: Civil War, as he returns to Wakanda to properly take his place as the nation’s King, but an old enemy resurfaces and tests T’Challa’s mettle as King and as Black Panther, with the fate of Wakanda and the world itself hanging in the balance.
Chadwick Boseman will be reprising his role as T’Challa, and he will be joined by stars Michael B. Jordan, Oscar winner Lupita Nyong’o, Danai Gurira, Martin Freeman and Daniel Kaluuya, with Academy Award nominee Angela Bassett, with Academy Award winner Forest Whitaker, and Andy Serkis.
