BLACK PANTHER: WAKANDA FOREVER
Director: Ryan Coogler
Starring: Letitia Wright, Angela Bassett, Danai Guria, Lupita Nyong’o, Winston Duke, Martin Freeman, Tenoch Huerta, Michaela Coel, Richard Schiff, Dominique Thorne
Director Ryan Coogler has done it again. It may have seemed next to impossible to do a sequel to Black Panther without Chadwick Boseman, but Black Panther: Wakanda Forever one of the best Marvel movies to date. Coogler opens his film in the only way possible, we find Letitia Wright’s Shuri desperately trying to save T’Challa’s life but is unsuccessful. What transcends is a private ceremony for the fallen king with a grand processional in Wakanda. One year later, Queen Ramonda (Bassett) is facing the United Nations with growing concerns over the distribution of vibranium. There is a new threat that looms when a tribe of sirens infiltrate from the water. They have winged feet, pointy ears and live in the underwater nation called Talokan. Their leader, Namor (Huerta), is not to be messed when he poses an ultimatum to the Wakandans.
