The supporting cast is bursting with talent: Michael B. Jordan, Lupita Nyong'o, Angela Bassett, Daniel Kaluuya and Danai Gurira all have roles in the movie.

On Wednesday, he challenged the public to raise money for kids in their city to see the movie, too. The character was introduced to the Marvel Cinematic Universe in 2016's Captain America: Civil War, where he was in the early stages of taking up the mantle of the Black Panther from his father, T'Chaka, the late king.
Fans are buying their advance tickets to Black Panther on Fandango before the film hits theatres on February 16.
"'Black Panther' is riding an incredible wave of momentum right now", said Fandango editor Erik Davis. The album will feature music from and inspired by Marvel Studios' Black Panther film including the lead single, "All The Stars", featuring Kendrick Lamar and label mate SZA, produced by Sounwave.
The actress jokingly took to Twitter this afternoon to lament how she was unable to get tickets to see the movie herself on opening night.
Unfortunately a lot of the young children to whom the film would mean the most can't afford movie theater prices.
"Black Panther", the highly anticipated Marvel movie due out in February, has become a bit of a poster child for well-done on-screen representation of people of color.
We are quite sure Lupita will find a way to surprise moviegoers on opening night by enjoying the impending greatness that is Black Panther with them somehow.
There is nothing that can stop the Black Panther hype train.
