Sex & Nudity

  • One brief scene of a man and a woman kissing.
  • Non-sexual shirtless scenes.
  • A man and a woman make out briefly in a van. The man pushes the woman towards him before one of the assistants posing as a medic shuts the door.
  • A weapon's dealer stores a phallic shaped piece of metal in his fly. When removing it, it looks as if he could be exposing himself. Very brief, played for comedy.
  • Some Wakandan women wear revealing outfits, but this is not portrayed in a sexual manner.

Violence & Gore

  • There are battles with swords, spears, guns and fantastical weapons.
  • The violence in Black Panther is slightly more intense and realistic than other MCU films. Characters are impaled and slashed with spears and swords, the blood and wounds not always focused on by the camera.
  • A man is stabbed in the chest, another the same, another stabbed in the abdomen.
  • A man is cut numerous times during a fight
  • A large battle/civil war takes place with friends fighting each other. No clear if anyone actually dies, though bodies are thrown, trampled, stabbed, etc.
  • Security guards are shot, some at point blank range, another shot in the back unexpectedly
  • Two main characters are shot, one at point blank range (offscreen). Bullet wounds are shown (though not much blood)
  • One of Klaw's henchmen gets scared of Black Panther during a car chase and jumps out of the vehicle, only to be run over by another car. It is played as a funny scene although the man clearly dies.


  • During a comical scene, one character gives someone the middle-finger.
  • Although not actually in the film, the movie's soundtrack is explicit.
  • A few uses of the word "shit."
  • Some uses of "damn" and "hell," but generally speaking, the amount of profanity is low.
