Black Panther or T’Challa, son of King Ta-Shaka (the deceased father), went after Winter soldier to settle his personal score. He is a brilliant strategist, scientist, tactician with a hybrid fighting style incorporating acrobatics and animal mimicry. He wears a suit made of vibranium (world’s strongest metal) which is used to make Captain America’s Shield as well. He is also called as “King of the dead” in latest marvel comics, which gives him access to all the experiences and wealth of knowledge of the previous Black Panthers.
Black Panther made his debut in the Marvel cinematic universe in the Captain America Civil war movie, played by famous actor Chadwick Boseman. Marvel studios have signed Ryan Coogler (of Creed fame) to direct the Black Panther solo movie, he will be the first ever Black person to have got such an opportunity from Marvel. According to San-Francisco based East Bay Times, he has indicated that he would like to explore the schooling of T’Challa in Berkeley, California. He may well have studied the works of Howard Stark or Hank Pym which he would later use it in Wakanda. It would be interesting to see his character arc from an American teenager to become a beloved King who is distrustful of America. Some of the plot leaks further suggest that the leadership of T’Challa as King of Wakanda will be challenged when two major Marvel villains join forces to take him down. These two villains are Erick Killmonger to be played by Michael B. Jordon and Ulysses Klaue who was last seen in Avengers: Age of Ultron.

The principal photographer of the movie released a set photo on his twitter account, where Chadwick Boseman is dressed as T’Challa instead of a superhero suit. In earlier photos, there were fellow actors present including Martin Freeman, Lupita Nyong, Danai Gurira etc. We are sure that more photos will come out and these leaks are part of a larger collection which will help us connect the dots. CHEERS!
