The process started with a single question.
Black Panther is one of the most-anticipated superhero films to date, so it's no surprise it also has an equally hyped soundtrack.

You wouldn't know it driving through the streets, but in the autumn of 2017, two huge Marvel movies were simultaneously shooting in Atlanta. At Pinewood Studios, it was Avengers: Infinity War.

After winning an Oscar for 12 Years a Slave, actress Lupita Nyong'o had her pick of the litter when it came to acting roles.
