A family of warrior-kings possessing superior speed, strength and agility has governed this mysterious nation as long as time itself. The latest in this famed line is young King T’Challa, the great hero known worldwide as the Black Panther.”

“Now, outsiders once again threaten to invade and plunder Wakanda. Leading this brutal assault is Klaw, a deadly assassin with the blood of T’Challa’s murdered father on his hands, who brings with him a strong army of super-powered mercenaries. Even with Wakanda’s might and his own superhuman skills, can the Black Panther prevail against this deadly invading force?”

And here are the bonus features which will be included in the set:

-Exclusive Music Video
-Trailers

The DVD will retail at $14.97 and comes packed with a unique replica of comic book-style plastic sleeve packaging that “bridges the comic book to DVD concept.” It’s set to be released on January 18, 2011.
