Wakanda Forever is stunning tribute to Chadwick Boseman

A stunning tribute to Chadwick Boseman, “Black Panther: Wakanda Forever” tells an ambitious, yet moving story about grief and acceptance.

In this heart-wrenching sequel to “Black Panther,” director Ryan Coogler creates a personal and moving experience while also expanding and exploring more of Phase 4 of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

The movie follows the wake of the sudden, unexpected death of T’Challa. While Wakanda mourns the death of their king and their protector, The Black Panther, the rest of the world makes advances on Wakanda’s resources. 

Princess Shuri, played by Letitia Michelle Wright, grapples with the death of her brother. 

Throughout the movie, Wright does a remarkable job showcasing Shuri’s journey from grief to acceptance.

Parallel to Shuri’s journey, “Wakanda Forever” introduces the Marvel antihero, Namor, who is driven solely by the desire to protect his underwater homeland, Talokan. 

Namor and Talokan present a delicate political struggle that teeters to stay in balance. While Shuri and her family’s loss is the heart of this story, it is driven by this conflict between Talokan and the surface world that brings tension to every scene. 

Characters like Riri Willaims, played by Dominique Thorne, and M’Baku, played by Winston Duke, are audience favorites that light up their scenes and contribute to the “Marvel” feel of the movie while still not taking away from the underlying somber themes. 

“Wakanda Forever” is visually stunning and speaks to the heart. It is equally charming as it is devastating.
