Watch director Ryan Coogler break down one of Black Panther's best fight scenes

In addition to breaking box office records, Black Panther has quickly established itself as one of the best and most unique films in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. And the credit for that belongs largely to director and co-writer Ryan Coogler. In this fascinating "Notes on a Scene" video for Vanity Fair, Coogler talks through the production design, costuming, fight choreography, color story, themes, and character-building that went into creating one of the film's best fight scenes—an undercover mission in which T'Challa (Chadwick Boseman), Nakia (Lupita Nyong'o), and Okoye (Danai Gurira) set out to capture Andy Serkis' villainous Ulysses Klaue at an underground Korean casino.
