This American superhero film is based on the Marvel Comics character of the same name, and is the eighteenth film in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. It tells the story of T'Challa, Black Panther, who returns home to mythical Wakanda, his home country in East Africa, to assume his rightful place as King. His throne is threatened by factions in his country, and the conflict has global consequences. Events occur after those of "Captain America: Civil War" (2016).
