Wakanda is coming to Washington. 

Items from the box-office hit "Black Panther" are coming to the National Museum of African American History and Culture, the museum announced Wednesday.

The superhero costume Chadwick Boseman wore as the Black Panther will be on display, as well as scripts used by the crew and behind-the-scenes photos. 

Plans for display of the objects are currently under consideration by the museum.

"Black Panther" became the first film since 2009's "Avatar" to top the box office in North America five straight weekends. Chadwick Boseman stars as T'Challa/Black Panther in the first stand-alone film for the superhero created by Stan Lee and Jack Kirby in 1966. The cast also features Michael B. Jordan, Lupita Nyong'o, Daniel Kaluuya and Letitia Wright.
