T'Challa returns home to take his place as king of the isolated, technologically advanced nation of Wakanda. However, his mettle as both king and Black Panther is tested when an old enemy returns, drawing him into a conflict that puts the fate of Wakanda and the world at stake.[2]


  • Connie Chiume as Mining Tribe elder[15]
  • Dorothy Steel as Merchant Tribe elder

Marija Abney, Janeshia Adams-Ginyard, Maria Hippolyte, Marie Mouroum, Jénel Stevens, Zola Williams, Christine Hollingsworth, and Shaunette Renée Wilson, portray members of the Dora Milaje.

  • The release date for this film was during Black History Month.
  • Black Panther's main costume for this film was designed by Adi Granov, who had previously designed the main armor for the 2008 film Iron Man.[22]
  • Early into the film's development, director Ryan Coogler and co-writer Joe Robert Cole considered having Elijah Bradley be part of its cast of characters. The idea ended up going away in favor of focusing on Wakanda even more.[23]
  • Director Ryan Coogler is a fan of the Spider-Man villain Kraven the Hunter, and early into the film's development requested to have him in it, but was denied.[24]
  • Initially, Coogler went back and forth on the order of the scenes set in Oakland and the UN. He settled on ending the movie with the scene in Oakland both to serve as a book-end and because of its bigger emotional impact.[25]
  • The wardrobe worn by T'Challa, Okoye and Nakia during their undercover mission in Busan references the colors of the Pan-African flag. T'Challa is dressed in black, Okoye in red, and Nakia in green. In that very same scene, Ulysses Klaue's vest is blue, representing colonialism.[26]
