Marvel Studios’ Black Panther Featurette explores the hidden nation of Wakanda

You can’t have a Black Panther movie without an exploration of the hidden nation of Wakanda. In the Marvel Cinematic Universe, the African country is technologically advanced and the home to the much sought after natural resource vibranium, which is the material used for Captain America’s shield and the Black Panther’s super hero suit.

In just a few weeks, we finally get to see director Ryan Coogler’s vision of Marvel Studios Black Panther including the nation of Wakanda. In the meantime watch the latest featurette.

Here is Wakanda Revealed:

Wakanda is rooted in tradition, but also has one foot clearly in the future. It’s definitely one of the more unique creations of Stan Lee and his fellow Marvel comic book artists.
