Black Panther endows the Marvel Studios Cinematic Universe with one of its most preeminent entries - far surpassing the lackluster pang fans experienced with Captain America: The First Avenger (2011). This is arguably the best standalone Marvel picture since the original Iron Man (2008).
T'Challa aka Black Panther (Chadwick Boseman) must pay for the sins of his father T'Chaka as the young Black Panther ascends to the thrown following Captain America Civil War (2016).
With the help of Klaue (Andy Serkis), Killmonger (Michael B Jordan) exacts his revenge on the world and his cousin T'Challa. Killmonger defeats his rival in a tribal, ritualistic battle and ascends to the throne as T'Challa is seemingly killed.
Reviving from his snowy coma thanks to his scene-stealing sister Shuri (Letitia Wright), and the aid of M'Baku aka Man-Ape (Winston Duke), the Black Panther returns to Wakanda to battle Killmonger's equally powerful Golden Jaguar persona.
The film flows from the point-of-view of a simple revenge plot. But its well-developed and likable characters carry that weakness across the finish line along with some glaringly odious CGI effects to a satisfying conclusion.
There are two post credit scenes. One shows T'Challa revealing his intentions to share Wakanda's technology with the world. The other scene reveals that Bucky aka the Winter Soldier (Sebastian Stan) has emerged from hybernation free of his HYDRA programming thanks to Shuri.
