Explore the origins of Black Panther and Wakanda in a brand new featurette for Marvel Studios’ “Black Panther,” arriving in theaters February 16.

In the featurette above, Marvel Studios’ Kevin Feige, the legendary Stan Lee, director Ryan Coogler and actor Chadwick Boseman give you a special look at the Wakandan King’s comic book origins on the page to his journey on screen in the upcoming “Black Panther.”

“One of the things that was so satisfying about ‘Civil War’ was, of course, the Black Panther,” shared Feige. “People came out of that movie going, ‘I want to know more about that character.’”

Feige added, “Stan Lee and Jack Kirby created Black Panther in the early ’60s and he’s been a staple of Marvel Comics for 50-plus years.”

“He has to look out for an entire nation — that’s a responsibility that the other super heroes don’t commonly have,” shared Boseman.

See more of the behind-the-scenes moments as well as thoughts from Coogler and Lee above!
