Black Panther movie

Following on from the many official images from Marvel’s Black Panther which appeared online earlier today, Entertainment Weekly have released a batch of new character profiles from the movie.

After the events of Marvel’s Captain America: Civil War, King T’Challa returns home to the reclusive, technologically advanced African nation of Wakanda to serve as his country’s new leader. However, T’Challa soon finds that he is challenged for the throne from factions within his own country. When two foes conspire to destroy Wakanda, the hero known as Black Panther must team up with C.I.A. agent Everett K. Ross and members of the Dora Milaje, Wakanadan special forces, to prevent Wakanda from being dragged into a world war.

Chadwick Boseman leads the cast of the film, which also includes Michael B. Jordan, Lupita Nyong’o, Danai Gurira, Martin Freeman, Daniel Kaluuya, Angela Bassett, Forest Whitaker, and Andy Serkis. Many appear in the new character posters, which you can find below.

Ryan Coogler directs the movie, which debuts in the UK next February.
