After the barrage of the initial film impressions that Black Adam brought along with it were astronomically high in comparison to others. And not only were they high in numbers, but they were also high on praise as well from nearly everyone who was given a chance to get in the pre-screening. This became an objectively high bar to clear for some of the upcoming films by Marvel Studios if they wanted to compete with this new era that DC Films has brought itself into.
Fortunately enough, the next film that is supposed to hit the theaters on November 11th is the sequel to one of Marvel Studios’ most successful films ever.
And not just that, after the initial screening of Black Panther: Wakanda Forever, critics have bowed their heads down to the performance from the cast, especially to the actor of Namor The Sub-Mariner, who will be the lead antagonist of the Black Panther sequel.
Tenoch Huerta Might Become The Best Villian In The MCU!
Black Panther: Wakanda Forever will be the last film that would relate to Phase 4 of the MCU, and thus fans had aspirational expectations from the movie. The success was also crucial for the film because it would have the tall order to carry on Late Chadwick Boseman‘s legacy through the cast members. Thus, it was almost an ironclad rule for the film to bring that emotional and financial outburst to Marvel Studios as the end credits rolled on. With the initial impressions of Black Panther: Wakanda Forever now public, we should rest easy.

With critics and fans of the MCU on the positive side, it should be obvious that the next Black Panther would give the audience what they want and then some, especially when critics have hailed Tenoch Huerta, the actor who plays Namor The Sub-Mariner, as one of the best-portrayed characters by an actor that Marvel Studios has given the fans in a while. Brandon Davis, who is a well-known identity in the industry recently tweeted about how Huerta’s Namor would hit the home run to the fans’ curveballs of doubts about him playing the Undersea King of Talocan.
#BlackPanther #WakandaForever is epic, especially in scope.
Namor is one of the better villains the MCU has had to offer. Tenoch Huerta just kills it!

This was a monumental feat for Marvel Studios but was expected by Black Panther: Wakanda Forever as this was a sequel that had high expectations from the fans. Huerta’s performance helped tremendously with the film’s narrative, and Ryan Coogler’s direction was on point as always. Fans have been reacting to this tweet, giving their own opinions and their own first impressions of the film.
I heard it takes itself seriously compared to all of the other films in phase 4 and before.

What To Expect From Black Panther: Wakanda Forever?
With the initial impressions out, it’s safe to assume that the film would be just as good as the prequel was if not better, but we also have to keep in mind that these are initial reviews that are given by just a handful of people that have experienced it. Critics are always pro-film fanatics who try to give positive reviews without completely lying about the film’s performance. Thus, we cannot claim that the movie will be as good as the hype would be created for it. But still, many of us believe in the power of Ryan Coogler and the cast of the film.
No matter what happens, Wakanda Forever will be a classic send-off to Phase 4, and a welcome starter to Phase 5 of the MCU.
