Trivia

T'Chaka and T'Challa are speaking in Xhosa, which is the South African dialect that was used for Wakandan. Celebrated South African actor John Kani, who portrays King T'Chaka, used his native accent when he appeared in Captain America: Civil War, and CHADWICK BOSEMAN picked it up from him as well.

Goofs

There are various cultural aspects that are a bit off. For example, a queen (and certainly not a queen mother) would not dance in such a ceremony as it would be undignified, plus the use of an obscene gesture by the king's sister was also inappropriate even in humor. Africans are far more polite than Europeans, and Americans in particular. See more »

N'Jadaka: Tell me a story, baba.
N'Jobu: What story, my son?
N'Jadaka: About home.
N'Jobu: Millions of years ago, a meteorite made of vibranium, the strongest substance in the universe, struck the continent of Africa, affecting the plant life around it. And when the time of men came, five tribes settled on it and called it Wakanda. The tribes lived in constant war with each other, until a warrior shaman received a vision from the panther goddess Bast, who led him to the Heart-Shaped Herb, a plant that granted him ...

Disappointing
18 March 2018 | by See all my reviews

This was supposed to be the newest and best Marvel movie. It was also supposed to be deeper than a super hero movie. Well, basically all they did was put African-Americans in the role of the main characters and followed the same exact formula of every other Marvel movie ever created. The action was mediocre at best. The villain was good, but at the point when he truly started to flesh out his character, I was bored and realized I was watching a movie. I literally said what was going to happen about 30 minutes before it happened. Now if you like super hero films, which I happen to not, I am sure you will have fun and enjoy this film. But, in my opinion this movie had th intensity of a haircut and was a boring commercial to sell toys.
