“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.

The film sees Boseman reprising the title role, joined by a stellar cast including Creed's Michael B. Jordan, Star Wars: The Force Awakens' Lupita Nyong'o, Angela Bassett, Forest Whitaker, The Walking Dead's Danai Gurira, Letitia Wright, Daniel Kaluuya, Sterling K. Brown, and Winston Duke.

Directed by Creed's Ryan Coogler, Black Panther will also see some returning faces from the wider Marvel Cinematic Universe. Sterling K. Brown (“Whiskey Tango Foxtrot,” “The People v. O.J. Simpson: American Crime Story”), Martin Freeman as Everett Ross, John Kani as T'Chaka (T'Challa's late father, likely in flashback scenes) and Florence Kasumba as security chief Ayo all return from Civil War, while Andy Serkis reprises his role as nefarious Ulysses Klaue from Avengers: Age of Ultron.

 Black Panther is set for release February 2018.
