After the events of Captain America: Civil War, King T'Challa returns home to the reclusive, technologically advanced African nation of Wakanda to serve as his country's new leader. However, T'Challa soon finds that he is challenged for the throne from factions within his own country. When two foes conspire to destroy Wakanda, the hero known as Black Panther must team up with C.I.A. agent Everett K. Ross and members of the Dora Milaje, Wakanadan special forces, to prevent Wakanda from being dragged into a world war.
Long live the king.

Tell me something. What do you know about Wakanda?
Everett K. Ross
It's a Third-World country. Textiles, shepherds, cool outfits.
All a front. Explorers have searched for it, called it "El Dorado". They looked for it in South America, but it was in Africa the whole time. I'm the only one who's seen it, and made it out alive.
