Potential 'Black Panther' Synopsis Released; Forest Whitaker Talks About The Film

With Marvel Studios' Black Panther's production beginning soon, we will start to see the release of more information regarding the film and now we have seemingly got the synopsis for it. Thanks to a recent casting call for the film a synopsis has been released, note that this may not be the definitive article and not the official synopsis, which we hopefully get soon enough.

The synopsis reads as follows:
Black Panther is the eighteenth installment in the Marvel Cinematic Universe and the sixth installment of Phase Three. The film will center on T’Challa, the Black Panther, former king of Wakanda, one of the most technologically advanced nations on Earth. He is among the top intellects of the world, a veteran Avenger, and a member of the Illuminati. Using his powers and abilities, he has pledged his fortune, powers, and life to the service of all mankind. The plot will see T’Challa seek help from his personal body guards, the Dora Milaje, led by Okoye. Black Panther’s leadership is being threatened by two foes that come together, and so Black Panther gets the help of the CIA and the Dora Milajei to try to defeat the enemy.


On top of the synopsis a full cast list was attached to the casting call too that has both Andy Serkis and Martin Freeman seemingly attached to the film.

Starring in “Black Panther” is Saturn Award winner Danai Gurira as Okoye, two-time Black Reel Awards nominee Chadwick Boseman as T’Challa/Black Panther, and Golden Globe Award nominee Andy Serkis as Ulysses Klaue/Klaw. Also joining the cast are Academy Award winner Lupita Nyong’o as Nakia, CinemaCon Award winner Michael B. Jordan as Erik Killmonger, Golden Globe Award nominee Martin Freeman as Everett K. Ross, Academy Award winner Forest Whitaker as Zuri, Daniel Kaluuya as W’Kabi, and Florence Kasumba as Ayo.

But for now take the above information as something that isn't quite the official thing however can be a good representative of what it will actually be like.

In other Black Panther news, actor Forest Whitaker was recently asked on the Empire Podcast about the film and Ryan Coogler, the film's director. “I’m excited to do it," Whitaker said. "I mean, I think Ryan’s an amazing filmmaker. I have got a chance to know him since college, so I’m excited to see what it is like to be working with him on the other side, not as a producer, but as an actor because that is how we started with Fruitvale Station.

“[Whitaker's character of Zuri] is like the shaman of this community [and] to the prince.”

Black Panther is written by Joe Robert Cole and Ryan Coogler with Coogler directing the film.

Black Panther will release February 16, 2018!
