The first Black Panther film, released in 2018, the first blockbuster starring a black superhero, became a cultural phenomenon. It grossed over $1.3 billion, collecting an Oscar nomination for Best Picture along the way.




The new Black Panther movie pays a heartfelt tribute to Chadwick Boseman, the star of the first film, who died of cancer in 2020. The actor makes appearances in flashbacks as T’Challa, the ruler of the fictional African kingdom of Wakanda Letitia Wright has taken over from the actor to reincarnate the Black Panther. To do so, the champion must protect the sub-Saharan Afro-futuristic and now quasi-matriarchal kingdom of Wakanda from foreign lusts.
