Black Panther, Nakia and Shuri movie costumes on display...

After the events of Captain America: Civil War and the death of his father, Chadwick Boseman's 'T'Challa' heads back to Wakanda to claim his throne, but internal tribal challenges and external factions threatens to spill out of the isolated African nation and endanger the world in the first Black Panther solo movie.
