A digital film still of Chadwick Boseman, Ryan Coogler, and Forest Whitaker on the set of the film Black Panther.
Coogler is pictured in the center, facing the camera, bent leaning down to talk to Boseman and Whitaker, who are both seated and looking towards Coogler. Boseman is on the left side, dressed as the character T'Challa. He is wearing a dark colored bathrobe draped over his shoulders, a beaded panther claw necklace and belt, and dark grey trousers. Whitaker, as the character Zuri, is on the right side, wearing a dark colored robe with white lining draped over his shoulders and red pants. Coogler is standing with his proper right leg bent and resting on Boseman’s seat. He is wearing a knit hat, a jacket, and dark colored pants. His proper right arm is resting on his right leg and he is holding onto his right hand with his left hand. The image appears dark and hazy, with the set representing an interior cave as the background.
