Vote for the best Black Panther movie quotes!
Black Panther movie quotes provide the lines to the film based on the Marvel character with the same name. The superhero movie was directed by Ryan Coogler using a screenplay he co-wrote with Joe Robert Cole using characters Stan Lee and Jack Kirby created for the Marvel comic books in 1966. Black Panther opened theatrically in the United States on February 16, 2018.
In Black Panther, King of Wakanda T’Chaka (John Kani) is killed which forces his son, T’Challa (Chadwick Boseman) to return to his homeland to take the throne. T’Challa is welcomed by others in Wakanda including former lover Nakia (Lupita Nyong’o), bodyguard Okoye (Danai Gurira), best friend W’Kabi (Daniel Kaluuya), sister Shuri (Letitia Wright) and mother Ramonda (Angela Bassett), but he understands that with great power comes even greater responsibility.
There is, however, one person who is not excited about T’Challa taking over as king and that’s N’Jadaka/Erik Killmonger Stevens (Michael B. Jordan). Killmonger has long wanted to rule Wakanda and now strives to take down T’Challa to do just that. But luckily for T’Challa, due to his strength from ingesting a heart-shaped herb and with the help of his superhero suit, T’Challa is also Black Panther, a worthy foe of Killmonger.
Black Panther was one of several highly anticipated 2018 movies when it opened alongside the likes of The Cloverfield Paradox, Maze Runner: The Death Cure, Father Figures, and The Florida Project.
T'Challa/Black Panther fully understands the trials and tribulations ahead as he takes over as King of Wakanda. Also, in this Black Panthermovie quote, he asserts that he's ready for the challenge.
N'Jadaka/Erik Killmonger Stevens: I waited my entire life for this. The world’s going to start over and Imma burn it all!
Everyone in Wakanda seems pretty excited that T'Challa is becoming king, well, everyone except N'Jadaka. N'Jadaka, AKA Erik Killmonger, wants the power for himself and plans to seize it regardless of what it takes.
Everett K. Ross: You’re telling me that a king of a third world country runs around in a bulletproof cat suit?Ulysses Klaue: Why don’t you ask him yourself, because he’s right outside... Bingo.
Ross is highly skeptical at Klaue's claims that the King of Wakanda is some superhero with a cat suit. But as Klaue points out, said king with a superhero cat suit is one room over watching them using one-way glass
T'Challa/Black Panther: I never freeze.
While it may seem as much in these Black Panther movie quotes that Okoye is doubting T'Challa before they go into battle, that's far from the case. Okoye is there to protect T'Challa and simply giving him a pre-game pep talk.
N'Jadaka/Erik Killmonger Stevens: Black Panther, it must feel good, sitting here comfortable.T'Challa/Black Panther: What do you want?N'Jadaka/Erik Killmonger Stevens: Your secrets, your weapons
Foes N'Jadaka/Erik Killmonger Stevens and T'Challa/Black Panther come face to face to have a friendly chat about why N'Jadaka/Erik Killmonger Stevens has such a beef. Killmonger doesn't just have a beef, he wants to take full control of Wakanda.
Ulysses Klaue: Tell me something. What do you know about Wakanda?Everett K. Ross: It’s a third-world country, textiles, shepherds, cool outfits.Ulysses Klaue: All a front, explorers have searched for it, called it El Dorado. They looked for it in South America but it was in Africa the whole time. I’m the only one who's seen it and made it out alive.
As Klaue and Ross share what they know about Wakanda, both paint a picture of a mysterious and a little scary place. Klaue knows that danger first hand and prides himself on being the only man to see it first hand and live to tell about it
Okoye: We are home....Ramonda: My son, it is your time....Nakia: You get to decide what kind of king you are going to be.
As T'Challa returns home to Wakanda to become king, he has more than a few strong women standing by him and excited to see him succeed. Between mother Ramonda, bodyguard Okoye and former lover Nakia, T'Challa is far from alone as he navigates his new role.
Shuri: It is lighter, completely bulletproof, and it absorbs energy for redistribution.
In this Black Panther movie quote, Shuri enlightens T'Challa/Black Panther about the interesting technology in his suit. Not only is it super light and bullet proof, but it can absorb energy for use later on. Very cool.
