T'Challa, the Black Panther, is crowned king, but his attempts to fill his father's old shoes is troubled with the growing need to adapt to the present and face the dangers the outside world poses to his isolated country, especially when his sovereignty is challenged by a forgotten family member who plans to take their advanced technology to those in need.

- N'Jadaka/Erik Stevens/Killmonger is never referred to as Erik Killmonger within the film, which is the character's name in mainstream Marvel Comics, but is credited as such.
- 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.
