A brief synopsis from Marvel revealed that the film will follow the titular character – also known as T’Challa – after the events of Captain America: Civil War as he “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.”
