Updated May 18th, 2018:

LEGO Marvel Super Heroes - Black Panther: Trouble in Wakanda

The LEGO special comes after the massive success of Marvel Studios’ Black Panther, which just passed The Avengers to become the highest-grossing comic book ever stateside, and will feature various characters from the blockbuster film. Returning to voice T’Challa is James Mathis III (Marvel’s Avengers Assemble), joining him are Keston John (Bosch) as Killmonger, Daisy Lightfoot (Horizon: Zero Dawn) as Shuri, Yvette Nicole Brown (Community) as Okoye, Trevor Devall (Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy) as Klaue, Mick Wingert (Kung Fu Panda) as Iron Man, Travis Willingham (Sonic Boom) as Thor, Roger Craig Smith (Marvel’s Avengers Assemble) as Captain America, Laura Bailey (Marvel’s Spider-Man) as Black Widow, Fred Tatasciore (Family Guy) as Hulk, Liam O’Brien (Critical Role) as Doctor Strange, and Issac C. Singleton Jr. (Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy) as Thanos.


The special is set to premiere on Disney XD this summer and will see the King of Wakanda endure some hardships on the throne. According to the synopsis, following Thanos’ arrival from outer space and his threat to destroy Earth, the Black Panther is forced to leap into action and try to bring him own alongside Earth’s Mightiest Heroes. However, it isn’t just Thanos they’re forced to take on; rogue villains Killmonger and Klaue will team up with the Mad Titan to bring the fight to Wakanda, and Black Panther and the Avengers will need to defeat them before Wakanda is destroyed.

The shorts will be released weekly on The Marvel HQ YouTube channel (though they might be region-locked), and a compilation of all 5 shorts will premiere on Disney XD on Sunday June 3rd, at 11:00AM ET.

I love the attention Black Panther is getting lately. It really is like a dream come true. A few years ago, Ultimate Avengers II: Rise of the Panther and Black Panther: The Animated Series were a big deal for the character.

Now we have Avengers: Black Panther's Quest, Lego Black Panther: Trouble in Wakanda and a Black Panther movie, plus his various comics like the upcoming Rise of the Black Panther.

I definitely hope this animated Lego special is a fun one.

Fun Fact: When I read Keaston John's name, I just thought they spelt Josh Keaton backwards.

Also, I'm somewhat remise that they didn't Nakia in this. I would've loved it if they got Erica Luttrell to play her.

I'm guessing with Daisy Lightfoot in this as Shuri that most of these VA's will probably be carrying over into Avengers: Black Panther's Quest, specifically Killmonger, Okoye, and Klaue/Klaw :cool:.

Also kind of cool that they're combining both Thanos and Black Panther's Rogues Gallery for double the synergy :D.

I also find it kind of funny that Laura Bailey now has Marvel's Spider-Man listed under her credits and she's playing Black Widow. :p.

More comments, from Comic Book Revolution's coverage of the WonderCon panel:
Kalia [Ramirez] announces that they are now working on LEGO: Marvel Super Heroes – Black Panther: Trouble In Wakanda. Killmonger and Klaw are the main villains of the movie.
They show an in progress design featuring Black Panther fighting Thanos, Killmonger along with other Avengers with music inspired by the recent movie. Director Michael Black announces a finished render of what we just saw in full trailer form. It will be out sometime in 2018.

It's kind of weird seeing them using the Infinity War designs for the minifgs here, especially since it really makes Cap and Widow stand out here :sweat:.

Bruce Banner makes his Lego special debut :cool:.

I was wondering what design they would use for Killmonger, though not surprised to see them using the MCU suit...

I am so far behind on animation right now, specifiically Guardians of the Galaxy, but I'm not surprised with any of the designs they used, except Thanos. Surprised they went with the more classic look that they used as a big figure in 2015 as opposed to the Infinity War tie-in sets sleeveless look. I would have liked to see them go with the other recent design they used for Killmonger, since it would have provided a better contrast from the Black Panther's costume.
