Black Panther: Wakanda Forever
Director: Ryan Coogler
Cast: Letitia Wright, Lupita Nyong’o, Danai Gurira, Winston Duke, Florence Kasumba, Dominique Thorne, Michaela Coel, Tenoch Huerta Mejía, Martin Freeman, Julia Louis-Dreyfus, Angela Bassett
Following the death of T’Challa, Wakanda is under pressure to share their resources. When the CIA attempts to find vibranium deposits in the ocean, they incur the wrath of Talokan, an underwater kingdom ruled by Namor. Black Panther was not the most memorable MCU release, but it became a major milestone for black culture. After Chadwick Boseman’s untimely death, the sequel must take the story forward without its hero, as T’Challa’s baby sister Shuri takes the centre stage. The good news is that this is a perfectly entertaining (but needlessly long) superhero movie and a moving tribute to Boseman.
