The first reactions to Marvel’s Black Panther Wakanda Forever call the film the franchise’s best since Avengers Endgame and quite cathartic and emotional.
Marvel Studios’ next tentpole film Black Panther: Wakanda Forever is set to hit the theatres in just over two weeks’ time. The film had its world premiere this Wednesday in the US where film stars, the film’s team, as well as select journalists watched the film. And while the review embargo is still on, the first reactions from those who watched the film are here, and they are unanimously positive.
Black Panther: Wakanda Forever is part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe and the direct sequel to 2018’s Black Panther. The difference here is that it features a new actor taking over the mantle of the superhero, following the death of Chadwick Boseman in 2020, who played the titular role in the first film. The story follows how Wakanda mourns the loss of T’Challa and faces a new threat in Namor.
