And that’s a wrap for Marvel’s “Black Panther.” Chadwick Boseman’s highly anticipated solo film, directed by Ryan Coogler, has finished principal photography for its 2018 release.
Boseman debuted T’Challa/Black Panther in “Captain America: Civil War,” and the critics who got to see an advance screening of the next Marvel Cinematic Universe film, “Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2,” also got to see some early “Black Panther” footage. That footage has yet to be made available to the public, but we’re on standby for more official releases, including a trailer this summer (maybe during Comic-Con).
Boseman has been sharing some set photos, and today he celebrated the end of filming in a photo with co-star Lupita Nyong’o (who plays Nakia, a special forces bodyguard and T’Chala’s love interest), along with director Coogler, and actor Sydelle Noel.

Noel retweeted the post, writing, “Yes, we did! …and making history.

Danai Gurira, who plays Okoye, head of the all-female special forces of Wakanda, wrapped her role earlier this week and shared a cast/crew photo:

The all-star “Black Panther” cast includes Michael B. Jordan as a Wakandan exile who wants to overthrow T’Challa; Martin Freeman as Everett K. Ross of the Joint Counter Terrorism Center; Angela Bassett as T’Challa’s mother; plus Forest Whitaker, Andy Serkis, and Sterling K. Brown.
Here’s the official movie synopsis from Marvel:
“Black Panther” follows T’Challa who, after the events of ‘Captain America: Civil War,’ returns home to the isolated, technologically advanced African nation of Wakanda to take his place as King. However, when an old enemy reappears on the radar, T’Challa’s mettle as King and Black Panther is tested when he is drawn into a conflict that puts the entire fate of Wakanda and the world at risk.
“Black Panther” was shot in Atlanta and South Korea, and is scheduled for release in theaters on February 16, 2018.
