• Marvel's Black Panther Is Mythic

    After his father, the king of the African nation of Wakanda, dies in an explosion, T'Challa (Chadwick Boseman) comes home in Black Panther to take the empty throne. This action-packed superhero movie reinvigorates the Marvel Cinematic Universe franchise with a vibrant look, a social conscience, and a mythic feel — along with the action you expect from Marvel and Disney.

    T'Challa's two adversaries — Erik Killmonger (Michael B. Jordan) and arms dealer Ulysses Klaue (Andy Serkis) — are after Wakanda's precious vibranium, a rare metal with almost magical properties. To become Black Panther and fight his enemies, T'Challa uses the heart-shaped herb, a plant that gives him superhuman powers, and dons the Black Panther mask and bulletproof costume woven with vibranium threads.

    "This is a movie that brings people together," says actress Lupita Nyong'o (Nakia). "It's one you want to enjoy with a community."

  • Members of the Black Panther cast and crew talk about the movie at the red-carpet premiere in Hollywood.

  • The screenplay by director Ryan Coogler (Fruitvale Station and Creed) and Joe Robert Cole is based on the 2016 comic book by social commentator and graphic-novelist Ta-Nehisi Coates. Coogler brings to the big screen a cast of primarily African and African American actors, including John Kani, Angela Bassett, Letitia Wright, and Danai Gurira.

    "Ryan Coogler … wants every frame to [be] perfect," says executive producer Nate Moore. "He wants you to hear every sound, so going to the best theatre is the best experience because you're going to get all that texture. You're going to get all that color. All that care we took in visual effects is best reflected if you're in a state-of-the-art theatre."

    "I love the fact that Dolby is bringing out the sound, the picture quality because everything in this movie is big," says actress Sope Aluko.
