Rising star Chadwick Boseman made one hell of an impression as T’Challa/Black Panther in last year’s Captain America: Civil War, and he’s since been hard at work on the set of Black Panther.
In an inspiring Instagram post, Boseman made a reference to Muhammad Ali in terms of the commitment and passion that he, director Ryan Coogler, and the rest of their collaborators are bringing to Black Panther.
Set after the events of Civil War, Black Panther will follow T’Challa as he returns to his native homeland of Wakanda, and assumes the position of king. But not all are ready to welcome their new sovereign back with welcome arms, and T’Challa must once again don the armour of the Black Panther to face down the threat of terrorist and potential usurper Erik Killmonger (Michael B. Jordan).
Black Panther is set to be released on February 16, 2018.
