Black Panther tells the story of T’Challa, aka Black Panther, who becomes the king of the African nation of Wakanda after his father’s death. Faced with the role of leading Wakanda, he’s challenged by his cousin, Killmonger, who plans to abandon the country’s isolationist policies and start a global revolution. There’s a lot more political intrigue here than some other Marvel Cinematic Universe movies but it’s a fascinating tale of different sides. Featuring an all-star cast including the late Chadwick Boseman, Michael B. Jordan, Daniel Kaluuya, Angel Bassett, and many more, it’s easily one of the best Marvel movies out there.

However you sign up, Disney+ offers tremendous value for money giving you the full Marvel Cinematic Universe back catalog along with all things Disney, Pixar, and Star Wars too. Marvel fans in particular will want to check out Disney+ exclusive, Falcon and the Winter Soldier after they enjoy Black Panther.
