M’Baku aka the Man-Ape has a long history with T’Challa. Him and Black Panther have squared off numerous times in comic book history since his introduction way back in 1969. Man-Ape will be the films second villain with Erik Killmonger (played by Michael B. Jordan) being the first.

Jordan, and Danai Gurira.
