It looks like it will be one of the best movie of 2018, and Kenyan Lupita Nyong’o is in it in a big way.
Marvel’s cinematic universe is expanding greatly, and ‘Black Panther’ is promising to be one of their biggest hit.
The plot reads..
After the events of Marvel’s Captain America: Civil War, King T’Challa returns home to the reclusive, technologically advanced African nation of Wakanda to serve as his country’s new leader. However, T’Challa soon finds that he is challenged for the throne from factions within his own country. When two foes conspire to destroy Wakanda, the hero known as Black Panther must team up with C.I.A. agent Everett K. Ross and members of the Dora Milaje, Wakanadan special forces, to prevent Wakanda from being dragged into a world war.
To maintain a balance of power, the Wakandan Dora Milaje (aka the Adored One and wives-in-training) is chosen from rival tribes. In the case of Nakia (Lupita Nyong’o), Q’Noma Valley tribal elders selected her to be Milaje.
After spending several years in training, she presented to King T’Challa. And like a lovesick teenager that she was, she instantly fell for him. However, T’Challa told her and the rest of highly-skilled female bodyguards that he viewed them more like daughters than wives-in-training.
Her fellow Dora Milaje were content with their ceremonial role, but Nakia was not. And when T’Challa proposed to American Monica Lynne, Nakia wanted to snuff her out and have T’Challa all to herself. However, Nakia was caught before she could carry out her fiendish plot and banished from Wakanda.
The film stars Chadwick Boseman (Get on Up), Michael B. Jordan (Creed), Lupita Nyong’o (Star Wars: The Force Awakens), Danai Gurira (The Walking Dead), Martin Freeman (Sherlock), Daniel Kaluuya (Get Out), with Angela Bassett (American Horror Story), with Forest Whitaker (Rogue One: A Star Wars Story), and Andy Serkis (Avengers: Age of Ultron).
