Throughout the podcast, Stone will take a look behind-the-scenes in a definitive tell-all description of the incredible journey of T’Challa, how he came to be Black Panther, and how he and the world of Wakanda have evolved since, looking into some of the greatest moments, including Stan Lee and Jack Kirby’s 1966 debut of the hero right at the height of the Civil Rights movement.
Stone will also explore Panther’s evolution throughout the Black Power Movement and examine his time during the Avengers, as well as his own comics series.
“As thrilling as it’s been to watch Marvel’s first Black superhero leap his way to the top of fan-favorite lists over the past few years, getting to dig into his origin story with the people who made him (and the characters around him) is truly the coolest thing I’ve ever gotten to do,” said host Nic Stone on Marvel’s Press Release. “I can’t wait for fans to hear from the individuals who have spent almost 60 years shaping, expanding, and humanizing our beloved King of Wakanda and Black Panther, especially as his world continues to grow.”
