As far as the early reviews go, Black Panther: Wakanda Forever has been considered one of the best and most honorable movies that Marvel has ever made. From some calling it waterworks to others admiring the respect for Chadwick Boseman, the movie has managed to overwhelm the audience with its themes.

It has been claimed that the post-credit scene of the movie is also one of the finest moments of cinema as a dear beloved villain makes his appearance on the big screen. Tenoch Huerta has been complimented for his performance as Namor as well which may lead to Kevin Feige considering a spin-off for the character.

The people especially admired the respect and honor that Marvel Studios showed for the late actor Chadwick Boseman who had played the role of King T’Challa in the MCU before his untimely death. Black Panther: Wakanda Forever incorporates his loss as the throne of Wakanda is up for grabs to whosoever can become the next Black Panther.

Black Panther: Wakanda Forever is slated for a release date on 11th November 2022 in theaters and will mark the end of Phase 4 of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
