This week’s new episode of Disney+ Deets takes us to Wakanda for a closer look at Marvel’s 2018 blockbuster, Black Panther.

  • Before they break down the film, Kenneth and Marcellus pay tribute to the late Chadwick Boseman, who tragically passed away last year.
  • They then share some history on the character, noting that the first Marvel Comics appearance of the Black Panther came in “Fantastic Four #52” in 1966.
  • While they provide a great deal of information on the making of the film, some of the highlights included:
    • In order to fill the ranks of the Dora Milaje, the filmmakers enlisted stuntpeople, track and field athletes, MMA fighters and dancers.
    • The Warrior Falls set was built out of 25,000 cubic feet of foam that was painted to look like rock and the team created a functioning waterfall with six pumps feeding 125,000 gallons of water into the pool below.
    • Beneath the glass floor in Wakanda’s throne room, you can see script written in fifth century Nigerian language on the metal columns below.
