Marvel Entertainment and Walt Disney Studios’ Box Office Hit “Black Panther” Slated for May 15

Marvel Studios’ Black Panther (DVD: $29.99, Blu-ray: $39.99, 4K: 2 discs, $42.99) has been announced for release on May 15 from Walt Disney Studios. The highly celebrated story of T’Challa (Chadwick Boseman), a young African prince who takes on the mantle of king and superhero, has thrilled and inspired generations of moviegoers around the globe. In the acclaimed film, T’Challa returns home to the hidden high-tech African nation of Wakanda to succeed to the throne and take his rightful place as king, following the death of his father. But when a man named Killmonger (Michael B. Jordan) appears, T’Challa’s mettle as leader—and as his alter-ego—is tested when he’s drawn into a formidable conflict that puts the fate of Wakanda and the entire world at risk. The film also stars Lupita Nyong’o, Letitia Wright, Danai Gurira, Martin Freeman, Angela Bassett, Forest Whitaker, Andy Surkis, Daniel Kaluuya, and Sterling K. Brown, with a musical score by Grammy-nominated composer Ludwig Göransson and a soundtrack curated and produced by Grammy Award-winning global superstar Kendrick Lamar. Dominating the box office charts and emerging as the third biggest movie of all time domestically with over $665 million, exclusive bonus features will include audio commentary from director Ryan Coogler, deleted scenes, outtakes, several making-of featurettes, (which detail the Black Panther’s evolution, the remarkable women of Wakanda, the history of T’Challa’s proud nation, and the cosmic origin and technological applications of vibranium), a roundtable discussion with Black Panther filmmakers and writers, and a featurette tracing the countless connections between heroes, characters, and storylines within the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
