T'Chaka, also known previously as the Black Panther, is a fictional character in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. He is played by John Kani.

T'Chaka was the king and former Black Panther mantle holder of the secluded African nation of Wakanda. He was killed at a United Nations meeting by a bomb planted by Helmut Zemo. The blame was put on Bucky Barnes (Winter Soldier), with T'Challa vowing revenge. Helmut Zemo is brought to justice, however, and T'Challa turns him to the authorities.
