Black Panther Video Clip
Temp Score by Dexter Story

In 2009, filmmaker Reginald Hudlin asked me to mock score a clip from his Marvel comics Black Panther animated adaptation. Although I wasn't selected as the composer for the comic, I enjoyed the opportunity. The story of Black Panther (aka T'Challa) and the city of Wakanda is an inspiring one. Attached is the .mov file I submitted. Enjoy!


The Black Panther (T'Challa) is a fictional superhero that appears in publications by Marvel Comics. Created by writer-editor Stan Lee and penciller and co-plotter Jack Kirby, he first appeared in Fantastic Four #52 (July 1966). He is the first black superhero in mainstream American comics, debuting several years before such early African-American superheroes as Marvel Comics' the Falcon and Luke Cage, and DC Comics' Tyroc, Black Lightning, and Green Lantern John Stewart. The Black Panther was ranked the 79th greatest comic-book character by Wizard magazine. IGN ranked the character the 51st greatest comic-book hero. Chadwick Boseman will play the Black Panther in several scheduled films as a part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

The Black Panther is the ceremonial title given to the chief of the Panther Tribe of the advanced African nation of Wakanda. In addition to ruling the country, he is also chief of its various tribes (collectively referred to as the Wakandas). The Panther habit is a symbol of office (head of state) and is used even during diplomatic missions. The Panther is a hereditary title, but one still must earn it.
