Cool, fascinating and stylish - Meet the characters in Black Panther

As Black Panther – the 18th film in the Marvel Cinematic Universe – prepares to pounce on 13th February, we introduce you to it's incredible roster of characters, many of whom will also be making their mark in April’s hotly anticipated Avengers: Infinity War.

 

Fun facts

 
- It was decided early on that Xhosa, one of the official languages of South Africa, would be the language of Wakanda. A precedent had been set in Marvel Studios’ “Captain America: Civil War,” when celebrated South African actor John Kani, who portrayed King T’Chaka, used his native accent. 

- The cast and stunt team practiced with African drums played by musician Jabari Exum so that their movements would have a musical quality found in many African-based martial arts.


- The cast did the bulk of the fight work that will be seen on film. The other actors had to attend a “boot camp” to prepare them for the physical aspects of their roles.

- Michael B. Jordan, who plays Erik Killmonger, spent about two and a half hours in the special effects makeup chair every day, while makeup artists applied close to 90 individually sculpted silicone molds to his upper body. Each of Killmonger’s scars represents a “notch” of his kills over the years.
 
- The Warrior Falls set was 120’ x 75’ in size. The set was 36’ tall, with the pool being six feet above ground level. That made the cliff faces 30’ tall. Construction took about four months from start to finish.
