Marvel Studios’ “Black Panther” picks up exactly where “Captain America: Civil War” leaves off. The film tackles the story of T’Challa who's a young African prince who takes on the mantle of King and Black Panther, and the legacy that comes with it. However, T’Challa’s is tested as ruler and hero in a way that puts the fate of Wakanda and the entire world in jeopardy.
Wakanda is a fictional independent African nation that is also the most technologically-developed in the world. Wakanda has hidden its true form, cloaked by advanced technology, protecting itself and its inhabitants, thus secluding it from the rest of the world.
The country is one of the few places where Vibranium is found. The near-indestructible metal is what makes up Captain America’s shield, and possessing that precious substance supercharged Wakanda’s technological and cultural development.
