T’Challa, after the death of his father, the King of Wakanda, returns home to the isolated, technologically advanced African nation to succeed to the throne and take his rightful place as king.

It must be hard to make a superhero movie that stands out from the rest. BLACK PANTHER stands out in a number of ways. All of the cast, except one, are black actors. There are a number of references to race relations issues. And it is visually stunning. But BLACK PANTHER is ultimately just another superhero that follows the same narrative template as all the others.
