Trivia

The gold design harkens back to the herringbone necklace we saw N'Jobu wearing earlier in the film. It is also a nod to the gold version Black Panther wore in the comics. See more »

Goofs

The opening sequence showing the Earth from space as the vibranium meteor crashes into Africa shows the modern globe, even though millions of years ago continents had noticeably different shapes and positions. However, the sequence clearly shows not a real Earth, but a representation of Earth in the imagination of the child who is listening to the story. It's obvious, since this imaginary Earth has neither oceans, nor atmosphere, nor vegetation. See more »

N'Jadaka: Baba...
N'Jobu: Yes, my son.
N'Jadaka: Tell me a story.
N'Jobu: Which one?
N'Jadaka: The story of home.
N'Jobu: Millions of years ago, a meteorite made of vibranium, the strongest substance in the universe, struck the continent of Africa, affecting the plant life around it. And when the time of man came, five tribes settled on it and called it Wakanda. The tribes lived in constant war with each other until a warrior shaman received a vision from the Panther Goddess Bast, who led him to the Heart-Shaped Herb, a plant that ...

Blind fanboys?

Have you guys seen how many people voted 10/10 for this overrated movie? 57,500 people and still rising. I'm sorry but really? Haven't you guys seen the last fight between T'Challa and Erik Killmonger? What kind of CGI was that? Well, maybe you were sleeping by that time. 'Cause why not, the story was completely boring, predictable, and cliched. There wasn't any plot whatsoever. The characters were so shallow and undeveloped that you can't even care for any of them. People die and you don't even care. And of course, let's not forget the ''acting'' This movie harbors the cringiest actors in the universe. Their accent was killing everything. Probably you guys won't believe it but I was giggling and cringing while some dramatic scene was going on. It was just bad.

End credit scene was better than the whole movie.
