Black Panther's T'challa is a leader "on a continent that has a lot of political tension" says director

We've still got a while to wait until Black Panther's release date on February 16 2018 - yep, that's a whole 4 Marvel movies away - but director Ryan Coogler shared some bits of info with us at Comic Con. "What T'Challa is, is he's a leader of a sovereign nation, and a sovereign nation that's on a continent that has a lot of political tension," he says. "Looking at who he is and what he does, you can kind of get the feel for what any story about him can be described as." Check out the video above for more details and footage, and also to find out just how excited Michael B. Jordan is to be the villain.
