After the death of his father, Prince T'Challa ascends to the throne of the small African country of Wakanda. T'Challa is also Black Panther, superhero. Now not only must he govern his country but defeat a dangerous adversary.
Director Ryan Coogler compared the Wakanda vibranium mines to the real-life situation of the Congo mines, where the valuable mineral coltan (used in manufacturing digital products, found only in the Congo region) is being mined.
N'Jobu: Yes, my son.

During the scene where Ulysses Klaue is being interrogated by Everett Ross, you continue to hear Klaue speak whilst the camera is shown outside the interrogation room, with the camera focused on T'Challa.

The Wakanda fairytale prologue and part of the closing credits are a sequence of Wakandan nanite displays.
Each credit in the closing credits has a different image to represent the cast/crew's role in the film.
In advance of the film's release in India, the filmmakers removed all references to the Hindu god Hanuman presumably to avoid generating any controversy surrounding the film.
