The events of Black Panther take place after the Avengers: Civil War. T’Challa returns home after the death of his father, the leader of Wakanda, to become the new leader. However, he soon finds out that there are factions trying to take over the throne and that an old enemy is still lurking in Wakanda. As he gets drawn into a conflict that could potentially destroy Wakanda and the world, he teams up with C.I.A. agent Everret K. Ross and the Wakandan special forces in order to stop this chaos. Black Panther is scheduled for release on February 16th.
