T'Challa, the King of Wakanda, rises to the throne in the isolated, technologically advanced African nation, but his claim is challenged by a vengeful outsider who was a childhood victim of T'Challa's father's mistake.
Co-stars Lupita Nyong'o and Winston Duke, who play adversaries Nakia and M'Baku, were classmates at Yale together. They saw The Avengers (2012) together when it released, and were so awestruck by it they said hoped to get a chance to star in a similar film one day.
This movie seems to imply that the Wakandans had exclusive access to vibranium only until Klaue stole some of the supply. Howard Stark had a small sample of vibranium decades before Klaue stole his portion (which is what made up Captain America's shield), yet there is no explanation as to how Stark got his sample.
SPOILER: There is a scene at the end of the closing credits: Shuri meets a convalescent Bucky Barnes. This leads into Avengers: Infinity War (2018).
