The Fans Have Something Else To Say:

Even though it’s been repeatedly stated that the Judas and the Black Messiah actor left the movie due to scheduling issues, the fans are convinced that he didn’t take the movie due to a bad script. The recent track record of Marvel hasn’t been so good due to several reasons. Be it the disappointing movies like Doctor Strange 2 and Thor 4 or the issues of the VFX artists with the Studio that are leading to underwhelming VFX, the fans are convinced that the movie doesn’t have a good plot and is rushed.



With the absence of Chadwick Boseman and Daniel Kaluuya, the fans have less to no hopes for the movie even calling it a bad movie long before its release. Still, it can be hoped that the remaining cast and the plot help the movie and gives a proper direction to Phase 4 of MCU.

Black Panther: Wakanda Forever is going to hit the theaters on November 11, 2022.
