In the comics books a young man named Hunter is adopted by King T'Chaka after his parents die and the boy grows jealous of prince T'Challa. He becomes head of Wakanda's secret police, the Hatut Zeraze, but when T'Challa becomes king he disbands the organization due to its brutal practices. Hunter becomes the mercenary White Wolf, one of the Black Panther's enemy.
Another good news is the Oscar Winner Lupita Wyong'o may be joining the cast as the main female character, probably T'Challa's romantic interest. If that's true it's going to be another great collaboration between the actress and Disney, since Lupita had small parts in Star Wars: The Force Awakens and Jungle Book.
