Disney XD has chosen to subtitle seasons of its animated series Avengers Assemble over the course of its run with, for example, season four dedicated to the Secret Wars Marvel Comics storyline of the same name. Well, the title for season five was announced Saturday during the Marvel Animation panel at Comic-Con International in San Diego, and it will be Avengers: Black Panther Quest.
The Black Panther-centric story will focus on who he is, his relationships, and Wakanda. “Arguably, Black Panther is the greatest superhero of all,” Marvel Animation's Stephen Wacker said. “This show will show what the world what Black Panther is all about.”
The series will take place after the events of Avengers: Secret Wars, which will leave the Avengers team forever changed. Geoffrey Thorne is listed as the showrunner for the animated series. Thorne was the scribe of Mosaic and is the writer and producer of The Librarians.
Opening on Feb. 16, 2018, Ryan Coogler’s live-action Black Panther film stars Chadwick Boseman as T’Challa, with Michael B. Jordan, Lupita Nyong’o, Danai Gurira, Martin Freeman, Daniel Kaluuya, Angela Bassett, Forest Whitaker, Andy Serkis, Letitia Wright, Winston Duke, Florence Kasumba, Sterling K. Brown and John Kani.
