Black Panther was a at the box office, and now it's found a place in American history.
The museum acquired a Black Panther costume worn by star , who played T'Challa/Black Panther, as well as a script signed by film director Ryan Coogler and others, two pages of spec script for the film, and 24 high-resolution production photographs.
"Black Panther illustrates the progression of blacks in film, an industry that in the past has overlooked blacks, or regulated them to flat, one-dimensional and marginalized figures," the museum said in a blog post. "The film, like the museum, provides a fuller story of black culture and identity."
The items will be on display during the museum's first African American Film Festival from Oct. 24-27, and staff are considering including the costume in a permanent exhibit.
The Black Panther costume that will be on display at the Smithsonian was worn by Boseman in Captain America: Civil War and in the very first scene in Black Panther. Another Boseman costume -- the one he wore for most of Black Panther -- is already on display at part of the Marvel: Universe of Super Heroes exhibit at Seattle's Museum of Pop Culture.
