Marvel Is Streaming Its Black Panther Animated Series


Still looking for a Black Panther fix? Well, Marvel's official YouTube channel has got you covered.

Marvel Entertainment is currently streaming its Marvel Knights Black Panther animated series -- in full -- on its YouTube channel.

The show consisted of six, 20-minute episodes billed as a "motion comic," based on the Black Panther comic books. It features a voice cast that includes Djimon Hounsou (Guardians of the Galaxy) as T'Challa, in addition to Stan Lee, Kerry Washington and Alfre Woodard.

The show's plot followed T'Challa after his father's assassination and his quest to become a suitable king for Wakanda, including dealing with the royal court and investigating his father's death. Klaw, Juggernaut, Batroc the Leaper and others appeared as villains throughout the series.

Black Panther, originally released in 2010 (and aired on BET in 2011), was part of a production initiative from Marvel Knights Animation. Basically, it was a line of animated adaptations of Marvel properties, including Spider-Woman, Inhumans, Astonishing X-Men, Eternals and Iron Man.

Many of the shows have since garnered cult classic status among fans, with the last series releasing on DVD in 2015.

Renewed interest in the Black Panther animated series has skyrocketed since the live-action film debuted in February, and has since grossed over $1 billion at the box office. Fans have fallen in love with Wakanda, and they can look forward to even more of it in Avengers: Infinity War.
