Trivia

The Wakandans use displays of nanites (millions of microscopic machines that form different shapes), in contrast to the rest of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, who use holograms (Iron Man, Asgard) or viewscreens (Guardians of the Galaxy).

This is the third major superhero film to employ nanite displays, after X-Men (2000) and Man of Steel (2013). See more »

Goofs

When T'Challa is addressing the UN, a Welsh flag can be seen among the other flags in the background.

As a part of the United Kingdom, Wales doesn't have UN membership in its own right, so this flag would not be displayed. See more »

Overrated movie
18 March 2018 | by boynycSee all my reviews

This movie was just way too overrated. The fighting was not professional and in slow motion. I was expecting more from a 200 million budget movie. The little sister of T.Challa was just trying too hard to be funny. The story was really dumb as well. Don't watch this movie if you are going because others say its great unless you are a Black Panther fan or Marvels fan.
