Here’s how the studio describes the movie:

Marvel Studios’ “Black Panther” follows T’Challa who, after the death of his father, the King of Wakanda, returns home to the isolated, technologically advanced African nation to succeed to the throne and take his rightful place as king. But when a powerful old enemy reappears, T’Challa’s mettle as king—and Black Panther—is tested when he is drawn into a formidable conflict that puts the fate of Wakanda and the entire world at risk. Faced with treachery and danger, the young king must rally his allies and release the full power of Black Panther to defeat his foes and secure the safety of his people and their way of life.

Black Panther was created by Jack Kirby and Stan Lee, first appearing in Fantastic Four #52, published in 1966. He was the first African superhero to appear in mainstream comics and has been a prominent player in the Marvel universe ever since.
