A Marvel masterpiece
Critics are calling Ryan Coogler’s sequel an emotional and powerful journey—and a fitting tribute to the late Chadwick Boseman.
Arguably more important to the upcoming Black Panther: Wakanda Forever is not who will play the franchise hero moving forward in the Marvel Cinematic Universe—but how the sequel will pay tribute to its late star, Chadwick Boseman. The Black Panther lead tragically died of cancer in 2020. Instead of recasting the role of T’Challa, the upcoming film, which hits cinemas on November 11, will show the fictional Marvel nation in mourning. Rebuilding and preparing for a future without their king, Black Panther: Wakanda Forever‘s moving story is being described by critics as a moving tribute to one of the most celebrated superheroes of the past decade.
The Marvel film, which introduces new characters such as RiRi Williams (Dominique Thorne) and Namor the Submariner (Tenoch Huerta), held its world premiere in Hollywood on Wednesday night. At the event, Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige said that Boseman’s body of work would “last forever,” and that “generation after generation after generation will get to feel his presence.” The film also reportedly featured a jaw-dropping end-credits tease and the first new song from Rihanna in over six years, titled “Lift Me Up.” Massive praise on social media followed the premiere, with critics lauding Tenoch Huerta’s performance and the sequel’s tear-jerking, respectful homages to their fallen hero. “We know how this feels,” Letitia Wright told the press at the premiere. “We have to take a step away. I see my aunt locking my eyes with me, she’s very proud… It’s emotional. We’re trying to hold it together.”
What is set to be a memorable moment in cinematic history, where fans are torn from the loss of one hero and the introduction of another, we expect this to be a thrilling tear jerker.
We want to hear from you. How do you think this will play out? Are you looking forward to the second instalment?
