Chadwick Boseman on the secrecy behind his Black Panther casting
Boseman plays the titular superhero Black Panther

In Captain America: Civil War, T'Challa, the prince of Wakanda, travels to a conference in Vienna with his father, T'Chaka, the King of Wakanda, for the passage of the Sokovia Accords, which would limit the reach of the Avengers and others with superhuman abilities. "You know, let's let's go have lunch or something, we can talk about... something". But when a powerful old enemy reappears, T'Challa's mettle as king-and Black Panther-is tested when he is drawn into a formidable conflict that puts the fate of Wakanda and the entire world at risk. In fact, Black Panther has a ideal score on Rotten Tomatoes (as of now). It stars Chadwick Boseman as T'Challa, Michael B. Jordan as Erik Killmonger, Lupita Nyong'o as Nakia, Danai Gurira as Okoye, Daniel Kaluuya as W'Kabi, Letitia Wright as Shuri, Andy Serkis as Ulysses Klaue and more. In addition, Atandwa Kani has been cast in an unspecified role.

Marvel's Black Panther opens in theaters on February 16, but you can win tickets to see a sneak preview days ahead of the rest of the public.
