Trivia

A big juxtaposition, when T'Challa goes to the Ancestral Plane...it's limitless. He's in a place with no walls. He's on the continent of Africa, but here, Killmonger's Ancestral Plane has walls. He's inside an enclosed space where he remembers all of this pain. This is the scene where you really see Killmonger's perspective. Unlike T'Challa who embraces his father, Killmonger keeps his distance because the circumstances he grew up with and the hand he was dealt have hardened him. See more »

Goofs

When Everett K. Ross enters the interrogation room he has the listening device on his left shoulder. When he leaves the interrogation room, it has vanished. But when the scene cuts to a different camera angle, you can see the listening device again (it is out of focus though). See more »

Something must be wrong here! This is not a good movie at all. Boring and cringy, an SJW fail. Black Panther was quite cool in Captain America, but don't be fooled. I'm sorry I paid for this, spare your money and don't support this crap or they will make more crap.
