          EXT. DEEP SPACE

          A dark screen is lit up by twinkling stars .

                          SON
           Baba?

                          FATHER
           Yes, my son?

                          SON
           Tell me a story .

                          FATHER
           Which one?

                          SON
           The story of home .
          A meteorite drifts into frame , heading towards tiny Earth off
          in the distance.

                          FATHER
           Millions of years ago , a meteorite
           made of vibranium, the strongest
           substance in the universe struck
           the continent of Africa affecting
           the plant life around it.

          The meteorite hits Africa and we see plant life and animals
          affected by vibranium.

                          FATHER (CONT'D)
           And when the time of man came , five
           tribes settled on it and called it
           Wakanda. The tribes lived in
           constant war with each other until
           a warrior shaman received a vision
           from the Panther goddess Bast who
           led him to the Heart Shaped Herb, a
           plant that granted him super human
           strength , speed, and instincts.


          A visual representation of the five tribes emerges as hands
          from the sand animation, and we see them unite , and then
          break apart as conflict arises . Bashenga rises above the
          conflict and eats the Heart Shaped Herb, proceeding to unite
          the tribes .

                          FATHER (CONT'D)
           The warrior became King and the
           first Black Panther , the protector
           of Wakanda .

                          (MORE)

           2.

                          FATHER (CONT'D)
           Four tribes agreed to live under
           the King's rule , but the Jabari
           tribe isolated themselves in the
           mountains.

          We see the Jabari striding off towards the isolated mountain
          region.

                          FATHER (CONT'D)
           The Wakandans used vibranium to
           develop technology more advanced
           than any other nation , but as
           Wakanda thrived the world around it
           descended further into chaos.

          We see images of war and slavery just outside Wakanda ' s
          secretive border .

                          FATHER (CONT'D)
           To keep vibranium safe , the
           Wakandans vowed to hide in plain
           sight, keeping the truth of their
           power from the outside world.

          We see the protective barrier rise around the Wakandan city ,
          as we pull back on the Earth as it spins, now zooming in on
          another part of the world ..

                          SON
           And we still hide Baba?

                          FATHER
           Yes .

                          SON
           Why?

          sound.

                          N'JOBU (CONT'D)
           Hide the straps.

          James quickly moves into action, hiding the guns in the walls
          as N'Jobu peers out a window , then clears the maps from the
          table and unrolls a tapestry on the wall , hiding a bulletin
          board. James cocks a handgun.

                          JAMES
           Is it the Feds?

                          N'JOBU
           No.

          A KNOCK rattles the door .

          James walks over and looks out of a peep hole, then turns
          back with a confused expression .

                          JAMES
           It's two Grace Jones looking
           chicks .. they're holding spears . . .

                          N'JOBU
           They won't knock again .

          A CARGOTRUCKMILITANT sits amongst the women, RIFLE in hand,
          next to a YOUNGMILITANT, a child soldier no older than
          twelve.
          We find a WOMAN sitting in the back corner , her eyes
          observing the militants intensely. This is NAKIA (30's, a
          Wakandan spy) .
          The CARGOTRUCKMILITANT stands up and cocks his rifle .

           ,
          The pickup's driver climbs out , cocking a submachine gun and
          looks into the forest in the wrong direction .
          Slowly approaching , the militant leader points to SHIFTING
          FOLIAGE in the direction of Panther.
          The militants nod and the militant leader covers them while
          they go off into the grass.
          The militants move slowly following every sound . They point
          their guns at the base of a TREE, but it ' s just a stray DOG.
          The gunmen approach the tree, eyeing around , then look up to
          find PANTHERstalking his prey from the tree tops.

           ,
          Slipping behind a MILITANT, Nakia picks up the man's RIFLE
          and quickly disassembles it as another MILITANT approaches
          and using the BARRELlike a combat stick, puts him on his
          back , out cold.
          She leaps onto a second militant, easily taking him down and
          striking him in the throat.

                         

          EXT. DIRT CLEARING, CHIBOCK - NIGHT

          The four men don't see Panther coming and executing a BARRAGE
          OF PUNCHESAND KICKS, Panther viciously dispatches them. He
          spots the Young Militant firing at him then SLASHES through a
          car door, and THROWS THE DOORat a Militant behind him-
          taking him out.

                         ON PANTHER
          In a moment of desperation , the Young Militant rushes out ,
          firing at Panther to no effect. Then , as Panther walks
          towards him, Nakia dives out , kicking the young militant's
          gun from his hand and grabs him in a neck-lock.
          Swinging around , Nakia kicks Panther in the chest, stopping
          his momentum. Caught off guard, Panther freezes .

                          NAKIA
           This one is just a boy . .. he got
           kidnapped as well.
          Nakia pulls the wrap from the young militant's face , exposing
          his pre-teen expression. She removes her own hijab as well.
          Panther stares at her- for a beat too long ...

                          T'CHALLA
           Nakia . . . I . . . I wanted to ...

           shoot ! I will shoot her right now !
          Behind the militant , an UNSEEN FIGURE creeps out of the bush .
          The figure stands , revealing herself to be OKOYE .
          The militant ' s rifle is SUDDE LY CUT IN HALF by Okoye who

                          N
          finishes him with another swipe of her spear .

          T'Challa removes his helmet , facing Nakia.

                          NAKIA
           Why are you here? Eesh, you ruined
           my mission !

          Nakia looks at T'Challa deeply . Then turns , catching eyes
          with one of the NIGERIAN CAPTIVES as Okoye brings them from
          aro u nd the truck .

                          NAKIA

          T 'Challa loo k s at the Young Militant for a beat before he ,
          Nakia and Okoye disappear through the trees .

          old . A RING hangs on a gold chain around his neck . This is

          ERIK KILLMONGER .
          Killmonger stands dangerously close to the glass containing
          SEVERALWEST AFRICAN ARTIFACTS They range from what looks

           .
          like iron gardening tools to masks and short range weapons.
          Flanking the room are TWOSECURITY GUARDS slight
           , l y unnerved
          by his presence .
          We follow the MUSEUM DIRECTOR a British
           , woman (mid-40's) as
          she enters and walks up behind Killmonger as he studies t he
          war masks .

                          MUSEUM DIRECTOR
           Good morning ! How can I help you?

                          KILLMONGER
           I was just checking out these
           artifacts . They tell me you're the
           expert .

                          MUSEUM DIRECTOR
           You could say that.

                          KILLMONGER
           They're beautiful .
          Killmonger points at one of the masks .

                          KILLMONGER (CONT'D)
           Where's this one from?

                          KILLMON GER
           For real? What about this one?

                          KILLMONGER

          Killmonger points to a MINING TOOL off to the side.

                          (AMUSED)
           I beg your pardon?

                          KILLMONGER
           It was taken by British soldiers in
           Benin but it's from Wakanda and
           it's made out of vibranium . Don't
           trip, I'mma take it off your hands
           for you.
          She looks at Killmonger like he's crazy .

                          MUSEUM DIRECTOR
           These items aren't for sale.

                          KILLMONGER
           How do you think your ancestors got
           these? You think they paid a fair
           price? Or did they take it like
           they took everything else .

                          MUSEUM DIRECTOR
           Sir , I'm going to have to ask you
           to leave .
          The Museum Director subtly looks back at the security guards ,
          then makes a face and touches her stomach -- indigestion .
          Killmonger smiles and leans over, whispering in her ear .

                          KILLMONGER
           You got all this security watching
           me ever since I walked in. But , you
           ain't checking for what you put in
           your body .
          The museum director looks at Killmonger in terror as a
          security guard walks up behind him .

                          SECURITY GUARD
           Alright, mate. Let's have it . Come
           on , mate.

                          KILLMONGER
           I think she might not be feelin'
           too good .

           17.

                         

                         
          The Museum Director suddenly slumps to the floor, clutching
          her stomach .

                          KILLMONGER (CONT'D)
           Hey! Hey somebody get some help !
           Come here! Call a doctor, please!

          to have KLAUEAND LIMBANI draw silenced pistols and rapidly
          shoot two of the three dead . Klaue looks at the one

          counter with TWOFIERCE KICKS.

          assault , T'Challa grabs M'Baku's spear and cartwheels over it

          OVERHEAD BLOWSwith his shield, then M' Baku leans with all
          his strength trying to impale T'Challa on the TIPS.
          Clubbing M'Baku to his heels , T'Challa rushes forward for an
          aerial attack only to be met by a VICIOUS KICK to the chest ,

          large panther jumps down , then stands on two feet to reveal
          it's T'CHAKA .
          T'Challa lo oks at his father and immediately pulls him into a

           I came to support you , and to honor
           your father. But I can't stay. It's
           just ... ! found my calling out
           there . I've seen too many in need
           just to turn a blind eye . I can't

           about it?
          Nakia thinks for a bit .

                          NAKIA
           Share what we have. We could
           provide aid and access to
           technology and refuge to those who
           need it ... other countries do it,
           we do it better.

                          T' CHALLA
           We are not like these other
           countries, Nakia. If the world
           found out what we truly are, and
           what we possess -- we could lose
           our way of life.

                          NAKIA
           Wakanda is strong enough to help
           others and protect ourselves at the
           same time .
          Nakia gives T'Challa a look .

                          T'CHALLA
           If you were not so stubborn you
           would make such a great queen.

                          NAKIA
           I would make a great queen because
           I am so stubborn .

                          T' CHALLA

           he still growing?

                          W'KABI
           Of course.

                          W'KABI (CONT'D)
           I see Nakia is back ... you guys
           going to work it out?
          T'Challa shakes his head and crosses in front of W'Kabi .

           T'Challa, what's wrong?

                          T'CHALLA
           Nakia thinks we should be doing
           more .

                          W'KABI
           More like what?

                          T'CHALLA
           Foreign aid ... refugee programs.
          W'Kabi shakes his head.

                          W'KABI
           You let refugees in , they bring
           their problems with them. And then
           Wakanda is like everywhere else.
          T'Challa thinks on this.

                          W'KABI (CONT'D)
           Now, if you said you wanted me and
           my men to go out there and clean up
           the world , then I'd be all for it.

                          T'CHALLA
           But waging war on other countries
           has never been our way .
          Then , both of their Kimoyo beads buzz.

           T' CHALLA (CONT'D)
           You too, huh?

                          W' KABI
           Bast, are we in trouble?

           A misidentified Wakandan artifact
           was stolen yesterday from a British
           museum . We have learned Ulysses
           Klaue plans to sell the vibraniurn
           to an American buyer in South Korea
           tomorrow night .
          There are audible murmurs at the name of Ulysses Klaue .

                          T'CHALLA
           Klaue has escaped our pursuits for
           almost 30 years. Not capturing him
           was perhaps my father's greatest
           regret . I wish to bring Klaue back
           here to stand trial .

           MERCHANT TRIBE ELDER
           Wakanda does not need a warrior
           right now . We need a King .

           My parents were killed when he
           attacked . Not a day goes by when I
           do not think about what Klaue took
           from us, from me.

           down together side by side, eh?

                          T'CHALLA

           Then I ask, you kill him where he
           stands , or you bring him back to

           communication devices for Korea .
           Unlimited range , also equipped with

          She walks him over to another table with WDGdisks on them .

                          SHURI (CONT'D)
           Check these out . Remote access
           Kimoyo beads. Updated to interface
           directly with my sand table .
          Curious , T'Chal l a notices a pair of SLEEK SHOES.

                          T'CHALLA
           And what are these?

                          SHURI
           The real question is what are
           those? Why do you have your toes
           out in my lab?
          Shuri points at T'Challa's traditional sandals . T'Challa
          smiles .

                          T'CHALLA
           What , you don't like my royal
           sandals? I wanted to go old school
           for my first day .

                          SHURI
           (rolls her eyes)
           Yea I bet the elders loved that .
           Try them on .

          T'Challa puts his feet into the shoes , and they lace up
          instantly , forming a perfect fit.

                          SHURI (CONT'D)
           Fully automated , like the old
           American movie Baba used to watch.
           And I made them completely sound
           absorbent .
          T'Challa stomps his foot down without a sound.

                          T'CHALLA
           Interesting .

                          SHURI
           Guess what I ca l l them .
          T'Challa thinks on this .

                          SHURI (CONT'D)
           Sneakers ...
          T'Challa looks at her blankly .

                          SHURI (CONT'D)
           Because you .. . never mind.
          Shuri walks T'Challa over to two mannequins . One wears
          T'Challa's CURRENTSUIT . The other , just a panther tooth

          NECKLACE .

                          SHURI (CONT'D)
           Exhibit A. Old tech .

                          T'CHALLA

           Functional, but old . Eh , people are
           shooting at me .. . wait let me put
           on my helmet . . .

           SHUR!
           (pointing to the necklace)
           Now look at these .
          T'Challa spots a GAUDIERGOLDTOOTHNECKLACE. She notices .

           SHUR! (CONT'D)
           Do you like that one?

                          T'CHALLA
           Tempting . But the idea is to not be
           noticed . This one .
          Shuri uses her Kimoyo beads to sync the suit to T'Challa.

           SHUR!
           (pointing at the necklace)
           Now tell it to go on.
          T'Challa does, and without warning, MILLIONS of vibranium
          laced NANITES spill from the necklace and form a new BLACK
          PANTHERSUIT around the mannequin.

           SHUR! (CONT'D)
           Oooh! ! The entire suit sits within
           the teeth of the necklace . Strike
           it .

                          T'CHALLA
           Anywhere?

           SHUR!
           Mhm.

                         
          T'Challa turns to the mannequin in a relaxed fighting stance .
          Shuri nods and T' Challa SPIN KICKS the shit out of the
          mannequin!

           SHUR! (CONT'D)
           Not that hard, genius!

                          T'CHALLA
           You told me to strike it, you
           didn't say how hard .
          Shuri picks the mannequin back up and drags it over to the
          same spot .

           SHUR!
           I invite you to my lab, and you
           just kick things around .

           37 .

                         

                         

                          T'CHALLA
           Well maybe you should make it a
           little stronger , eh?
          Shuri shrugs as we see Wakandan Script built into the suit
          GLOWING INDIGO where the impact of T'Challa's foot landed.
          T'Challa looks closely at the glowing script .

                          T'CHALLA (CONT'D)
           Wait a minute .

                          SHURI
           The nanites absorb the kinetic
           energy and hold it in place for
           redistribu t ion .

                          T'CHALLA
           Very nice.

                          SHURI
           Now strike it again , in the same
           spot .
          T'Challa backs up for a kick. Shuri presses record on her
          Kimoyo . T'Challa sees this and looks at her suspiciously .

                          T'CHALLA
           You are recording?

           SHUR!
           For research purposes . ..
          T'Challa loads up then BOOM He kicks the indigo spot and

          casino . There are a few GAMINGTABLES on the balcony level
          and a bustling pit down below .

                          T' CHALLA
           Spread out. The buyer is likely
           already here.
          Okoye heads for the BALCONY VANTAGE
           POINT while T'Challa and
          Nakia go down to the FIRST FLOOR.

                          T'CHALLA (CONT'D)
           The woman outside -- what trouble
           was she referring to?
          She plays along, alluring .

           count ... three .
          We see Nakia's POV as she makes out THREE CIA AGENTSon the
          first floor, spread out under the balcony.

           OKOYE(O.S.)
           Five. How could you miss "Greased
           Lightning" there behind you .
          Standing over the balcony looking , Okoye spots TWOMORECIA
          agents, both with greasy hair.
          An elegant waitress carries a tray of drinks to a CRAPS TABLE
          where we find T'Challa .
          The woman places the drinks down as T'Challa peers across the
          gambling pit at someone he recognizes and starts that way.

                          T'CHALLA

                          (INTO COMM)
           Six. Just spotted an old friend who
           works for the CIA . It just got a
           little more complicated.
          T'Challa steps up to another crowded CRAPS TABLE next to
          EVERETTROSS, the sixth CIA agent he spotted .

                          T'CHALLA (CONT'D)

           You are buying from Klaue ...

                          ROSS
           What I'm doing or not doing on
           behalf of the US government is of
           none of your concern. Now, whatever
           the hell you're up to , do me a
           favor and stay out of my way.

                          T'CHALLA
           I gave you Zemo.

           41 .

                         

                          ROSS
           And didn't I kept it under wraps
           that the King of a third world
           country runs around in a
           bulletproof cat suit. I ' d say we
           were even .
          Ross places a Pass bet. T'Challa dumps a stack of chips on
          Don't Pass. All of the SHOOTER'S FRIENDS blow on the dice.

                          ROSS (CONT'D)
           You really need to leave, now.
          They watch the dice roll . They land on 3. The dea l er takes
          away Ross' bet , and slides T'Challa's massive payout over to
          him .

                          T' CHALLA
           Klaue is leaving out that door with
           me. You've been warned.
          T'Challa walks toward another craps table , leaving the pile
          of chips behind (money means nothing to him) .

                          ROSS
           (to the empty chair)
           Hey, you won .
          Ross scratches his brow as a THIRSTY GAMBLER(Stan Lee) who
          was sitting next to T'Challa grabs them .
          Ross eyes the Thirsty Gambler who shrugs .

                          THIRSTY GAMBLER
           You know what, I think I'll just
           take these , bring 'em over here and
           hold on for safe keeping .
          He slides them all onto the DON'T PASS bet and Ross walks off
          in search of T'Challa .

                          ROSS

                          (INTO COMM)
           Ok heads up , the King of Wakanda is
           here . He cannot leave with Klaue .
          T'Challa stands at a ROULETTETABLE when Ross walks up to
          him.

           42 .

                         

                          ROSS (CONT'D)
           Alright , vibranium from the attack
           on Sokovia links back to a person
           that I'm not actually saying I'm
           here to make a deal with but that
           deal will not be called off. When
           the dust settles you and I can work
           something out .

          him back then disarms another TOUGHand kicks him into the
          bar . T'Challa then spins and kicks the next TOUGHover the

          Nakia grabs a goon in an ARMTWIST trying to relieve him of
          his gun . She takes off one shoe and knocks out another
          approaching gun. Swings the arm twisted goon to the floor,
          knocks him out, taking his gun and shooting up towards the

          over her back . T'Challa sends a TOUGHand table flying .
          Beats down two more TOUGHS, he turns for more.

           T'CHALLA (CO NT'D)
           He slipped through our hands .

                          W' KABI
           Slipped? For 30 years your father
           was in power and did nothing . With
           you I thought it would be
           different . But it's more of the
           same .
          Deeply disappointed , W' Kabi can't muster words . He looks at

           You always sell to the CIA?

                          KLAUE

                          KILLMONGER
           Oh I ain't worried about the money,
           bro . I know you're good for it .
          Klaue smiles.

                          KILLMONGER (CONT'D)
           On our way back, just drop us of in
           Wakanda.

                          KLAUE
           You don't wanna go there, boy .

                          KILLMONGER
           Yea I do .
          Killmonger suddenly draws a HANDGUN
           and SHOOTSLIMBANI DEAD.
          Reacting to the shot , Klaue crowds Linda with a skilled
          GRAPPLINGMOVEand snatches her gun away before she can fire
          on him .
          Killmonger finds Klaue holding Linda's gun to her head, using
          her as his shield .

                          KLAUE

                          (STUMPED)
           Drop it, or your little Bonnie and

           It's gonna be ok .
          Killmonger fires without hesitation . The BULLET TRAVELS
          THROUGH Linda , ki lli ng her while Klaue dives behind the
          plane , WOUNDED THE SHOULDER
           IN from the round .
          Killmonger moves to finish Klaue but he's gone . Following
          Klaue's blood trail , Killmonger STALKS Klaue through the

          SCRAPYARD.
          Klaue fires at Killmonger , missing . Killmonger stops and
          turns, ducking between planes. Killmonger spots Klaue THROUGH
          THE GLASS of a cockpit window and FIRES .
          Sniped through the window with precision , Klaue falls , losing
          Linda's gun . Ki l lmonger approaches and Klaue rolls to his
          back to face him .

                          KLAUE
           ... Y-You really wanna go to
           Wakanda? They're savages.
          Klaue shows his BRANDEDneck .

                          KLAUE (CONT'D)
           This is what they do to people like
           us.

                          KILLMONGER
           I ain't worried about no brand .
           Check these out.
          Killmonger rolls up his sleeve , uncovering SEVERALAFRICAN
          SCARIFICATION MARKSon his forearm .

                          KILLMONGER (CONT'D)
           Each one is for a kill .

                          KLAUE
           You can sca r yourself as much as
           you like . To them , you'll just be
           an outsider. You're crazy to think
           that you could walk in there .
          Killmonger flips the inside of his bottom lip, revealing a
          glowing Wakandan TATTOO.
          Klaue can't believe his eyes .

                          KLAUE (CONT'D)
           And to think I saw you as some

          Klaue starts laughing, hard .
          Killmonger aims and pulls the trigger at point blank range.

          Shuri tinkers with the circuitry of a PAIR OF MASSIVE CLAWED
          VIBRANIUMGAUNTLETS across the room as Ross sits up.

           I don't think so . Bullet wounds
           don't just magically heal
           overnight.

           SHUR!
           In it's raw form , vibranium is too
           dangerous to be transported at that
           speed , so I developed a way to
           temporarily deactivate it.

                          (IN DISBELIEF)
           There's vibranium on those trains?

           There is vibranium all around us.
           That's how I healed you.
          Ross tries to process this as a 3D PROJECTION OF OKOYE
          unexpectedly forms.

          T'Challa and Nakia gaze out off the side of a beautiful
          overlook .

                          T' CHALLA
           He killed his own brother ... and
           left a child behind with nothing .
           What kind of King  . . what kind of
           man does that?

                          NAKIA
           No man is perfect . Not even your
           father.

                          T'CHALLA
           He didn ' t even give him a proper
           burial ... My Uncle N'Jobu betrayed
           us , but my father may have created
           something even worse .

                          NAKIA
           Hey . Look at me. You can't let your
           father ' s mistakes define who you
           are . You get to decide what kind of
           King you are going to be.

           billion people all over the world
           that looks like us but their lives

           Our our weapons will not be used to
           wage war on the world . It is not
           our way to be judge jury and

           does not fall into the hands of a

          The elders murmur at Killmonger's disrespect. They wait to
          see how T'Challa will respond . Then , Ramonda suddenly speaks .

           Nakia. I don't like this. The Herb
           belongs to us. We may be creating a
           bigger monster with M'Baku.

                          (BEAT)
           Nakia , you should take it yourself.

           Yes, but . . .

                          M'BAKU
           So, it was less a murder than a

          a massive sonic blow that sends them flying as well as

          In the vibranium mine , down the track from Panther and
          Killmonger's fight , we see a light come on in the train port .
          As they fight , the panels light up in succession, and we see
          a silent , Maglev train hurdling right at them .
          Both fighters evade the train at the last second as the train
          whips past , creating a barrier between them too big to jump
          over.
          T'Challa stands up as his suit partially retracts into his
          necklace leaving his skin exposed .
          Killmonger , on the other side of the train , looks at his
          malfunctioning suit in confusion . He turns and looks back at
          the stabilizer .

                          KILLMONGER
           I don't need a suit to kill you .
          They look at each other from across the blinding fast train .

           You want to see us become just like
           the people you hate so much? Divide
           and conquer the land as they did?

                          KILLMONGER
           No I learn from my enemies -- beat
           them at their own game .

           You have become them . You will
           destroy the world, Wakanda
           included .

           The world took away everything away
           from me! Everything I ever loved !

           to you , and I'm gonna put they ass

          Hatred flashes over T'Challa's eyes as he reengages his mask
          and the train clears. Killmonger engages his mask , and they

                          T'CHALLA
           Thank you. You saved me. You saved
           my family . Our nation.

                          NAKIA
           There is nothing to thank me for.
           It is our duty to . .. it was my duty
           to fight for what I love . I should

                          HAVE --
          T'Challa kisses her .

                          T'CHALLA
           You can't blame me I almost died .
          Nakia looks at him deeply, and kisses him back.

                          T'CHALLA (CONT'D)
           Stay . I think I know a way you can
           still fulfill your calling. Please
           stay.
          Nakia looks at T' Challa with curious eyes. She kisses him .

                         

          EXT. LAKE MERRITT APARTMENT


           COMPLEX,OAKLAND- AY

                          D
          T'Challa and Shuri, dressed in subtle clothing , look at the
          now abandoned apartment building . In the distance a group of
          SIX KIDS (mostly Black, some Latino), play three on a rugged
          basketball hoop .

                          SHURI
           When you said you would take me to
           California for the first time, I
           thought you meant Coachella, or
           Disneyland . Why here?

                          T'CHALLA
           This is where our father killed our
           uncle.
          Shuri looks at T'Challa, shocked by his bluntness. She turns
          and stares closely at the building. We see her POV of large
          SIGNAGE that hints that the building is soon to be
          demolished .

           119.

                         

                         

                          SHURI
           They are tearing it down. Good.

                          T'CHALLA
           They're not tearing it down . . . I
           bought this building.
          Shuri turns to him confused .

           T' CHALLA(CONT'D)
           And that building , and that one
           over there ... This will be the
           first Wakandan International
           Outreach Center .
          Shuri smiles at the surprise.

                          T'CHALLA (CONT'D)
           Nakia will oversee the social
           outreach ... And you will spearhead
           the science and information
           exchange .
          Shuri turns to T'Challa in shock at what this means.

                          SHURI
           You're kidding !
          T'Challa hits a button on his Kimoyo bead , and the RTF comes
          out of cloaking , revealing itself to have been parked behind
          the kids playing basketball .
          A YOUNG BLACKKID turns back to see the ship as the other
          kids collectively lose their shit .

                          OAKLAND KID #1
           What? ! Man what the hell is that?

                          OAKLANDKID #2
           That's like a Buggati space ship !

                          OAKLANDKID #3
           Woah, it came out of nowhere !!! Did
           y'all see that?

                          YOUNGBLACK KID
           What . ..

                         
          They start to run up to the ship and touch it . Unsure at
          first .

           OAKLANDKID #1 (O.S.)
           We can take this back to the house
           y'all. ..

           120 .

                         

                         

           OAKLAND KID #2 (O. S.)
           We could pull up to school in this !

           OAKLAND KID #3 (O. S . )
           Hey look , we can break it apart and
           we can sell it!

                          OAKLAND

           KID #2 (O. S . )

                          OAKLAND KID #3
           Everybody get like a million a
           piece .
          She starts off towards the kids, walking past the Young Black
          Kid.

           SHUR! ( 0. S . )
           Uhhh I wouldn't do that if I were
           you guys ...

           OAKLAND KID #1 (O.S . )
           Where you come from?

           SHUR! ( 0 . S . )
           From Wakanda .

           OAKLAND KID #1 (O. S . )
           What is a Wakanda?
          The Young Black Kid approaches T'Challa .

                          YOUNGBLACKKID
           Hey yo ! Is this yours?

           YOUNG BLACKKID (CONT'D)
           Who... who are you?
          T'Challa thinks on this and smiles .

          INT. UNITED NATIONS ASSEMBLYBUILDING, ROTUNDA DAY


                          -
          T'Challa walks , flanked by Nakia, Okoye and Ayo .

           121 .

                         

          INT . UNITED NATIONS ASSEMBLYBUILDING - DAY
          Several assembly members move around the room preparing for a
          meeting . Suddenly a hush falls over the hall as the Wakandans
          enter and walk up to the center pit.

                          T'CHALLA
           My name is King T'Challa , son of
           King T'Chaka . I am the sovereign
           ruler of the Nation of Wakanda and
           for the first time in our history
           we will be sharing our knowledge
           and resources with the outside
           world. Wakanda will no longer watch
           from the shadows . We cannot , we
           must not. We will work to be an
           example of how we as brothers and
           sisters on this Earth should treat
           each other . Now more than ever ,
           illusions of division threaten our
           very e x istence. We all know the
           truth : more connects us than
           separates us . In times of crisis ,
           the wise build bridges , while the
           foolish build barriers . We must
           find a way to look after one
           another, as if we were one single
           tribe .
          The audience of WORLD LEADERS look around , bemused, wondering
          what Wakanda could possibly have to offer .

                         A FRENCHAMBASSADOR
           can't help but lean into his microphone .

                          FRENCHAMBASSADOR
           With all due respect , King
           T'Challa , what can a nation of
           farmers offer to the rest of the
           world?
          There are a few chuckles from the gallery . Nakia , Okoye and
          Ayo share a look.
          T'Challa smiles .

                         TAG 2

           MEDICINE HUT - DAY
          Open on three NECROPOLITAN CHILDREN WITH PAINTED FACES
          looming directly over something, staring with curiosity .

          The camera moves, startling the children who quickly flee the
          hut .

                         

          EXT. WAKANDAN


           MEDICINE HUT - CONTINUOUS
          The kids race out of the hut and over to Shuri.

                          SHURI
           Are you playing around with that
           man again?

                          WAKANDAN

                          CHILD
           No. Nol

                          SHURI
           You're teasing him again?
          Bucky exits the hut to the sight of a beautiful Wakandan
          lakeside. He takes it all in with a deep breath . Outside the
          hut are WAKANDAN SHAMAN (Man and Woman) and SHURI, embracing
          the three giggling CHILDREN TWODORAMILAJE observe Shuri

           .
          from a close distance.

          Bucky settles next to Shuri taking in her view of the lake.

                          SHURI
           Good morning , Sgt . Barnes .

                          BUCKY
           Bucky .

                          SHURI
           How are you feeling?

                          BUCKY
           Good. Thank you.
          Shuri smiles.

                          SHURI
           Come. Much more for you to learn.

                         
          He follows Shuri towards the other huts.
