When an ancient and mysterious threat rises to destroy Wakanda, Black Panther must cast away old alliances, old rules, and old friends and chart a new course forward for himself and for the people of Wakanda. With his sister Shuri by his side, Black Panther will decide what kind of king, what kind of Avenger, and what kind of man he will be.
Played by Chadwick Boseman in the Marvel Cinematic Universe movies, the titular hero is voiced in this new series by James Mathis III, who has been voicing Black Panther/T’Challa since 2010 in shows such as The Avengers: Earth’s Mightiest Heroes and Avengers Assemble.
Per Yahoo, “The animated series will pit Black Panther against a collection of old and new foes, all as it depicts his struggle to balance his responsibilities to his homeland and his newfound duties as a member of the Avengers. That tension between protecting his people and using his powers for global good will reportedly be the heart of the show.”
The global cultural phenomenon of the Black Panther movie dominated the 2018 box office charts, emerging as the #1 film of the year domestically (besting Avengers: Infinity War) and the third biggest domestic grosser of all time with over $700 million – the first film in eight years to spend five weeks at No. 1 – and rising to the global top 10 of all time with over $1.3 billion. Reminding people, especially those within the Academy, of the importance and global impact of the film will be the key ingredient to Black Panther‘s Oscar success.
