  • Killmonger's girlfriend's name isn't spoken on-screen, but her nametag at the Museum of Great Britain said "Tilda", as she was supposed to be playing Tilda Johnson, but that name went to another character in the Luke Cage TV series, so the credits just identify her as Linda.
  • Brothers Donald & Stephen Glover added to the comedic aspects of the film, such as Shuri requesting to finish up the ceremony quickly the because of her uncomfortable girdle, which they got a special thanks for.
