Marvel Studios’ Black Panther: Wakanda Forever has finally hit theaters and at long last, fans will come to know the new Black Panther taking up the mantle. One of the most anticipated movies of 2022, the sequel film is an attempt to honor the legacy of the late Chadwick Boseman.
Black Panther 2 travels back to the fascinating world of Wakanda as the people grieve the loss of their beloved King T’Challa. Now the realm’s safety lies in the hands of its powerful female leaders, Queen Ramonda, Shuri, Okoye, Nakia, Aneka, and Riri, as they defend and protect it from outside forces.
Black Panther: Wakanda Forever Exceeds Audience’s Expectations
The early screening reviews raved about the sequel being a great tribute to Boseman as well as boasting another epic Marvel blockbuster. Both fans and critics alike praised the cinematography and stunning visual effects. Moreover, they also commended the outstanding performance of the cast, with Angela Bassett being campaigned by fans for an Oscar nomination.
With so much hype and commendation, it is not impossible that Black Panther: Wakanda Forever will manage to beat two of Marvel’s most successful movies: Avengers: Endgame and Spider-Man: No Way Home. It might even break its own record with the first film’s Oscar nomination for Best Picture.
Ryan Coogler has created another masterpiece that oozes so much cultural richness and a high-quality storyline. From the scriptwriting, costumes, set design, and special effects down to the cast’s performance – it is a notch above its fellow superhero movies. What makes it stand out from the rest of the Marvel films is the inspiration that can be found all throughout the scenes.
What Sets Black Panther 2 Apart From Other Marvel Films
As the first superhero franchise to feature an all-Black cast, Wakanda Forever also showcased the rich indigenous cultures of the Yucatan and the strikingly gorgeous underwater place called Talokan. Tenoch Huerta’s Namor is a complex and compelling villain, with a solid origin story that sets up a more expansive world for the future of X-Men mutants in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
With a victorious box office opening this weekend, it will surely climb up the chart for the next few weeks or more. Some fans have already projected the film will hit $1 Billion at the end of its run, ranking amongst the top-grossing MCU films of all time.
Black Panther: Wakanda Forever is now showing in theaters worldwide.
