Black Panther: Wakanda Forever

 After the success of the first “Black Panther” back in February 2018. A lot has changed since then, both in the Marvel Universe and in the one that most people that don’t follow superhero movies or can’t keep o with a bunch of stories/(bc of what is happening in the world right now ) Even though The political situation in the fictional African nation of Wakanda is complicated enough. In “Black Panther: Wakanda Forever,” the director Ryan Coogler made a difference and a new era of change for all action and superhero movies in Hollywood, by integrating the main focus of the movie with somber notes of family loss and collective mourning. There is also a sense of the disorder that follows a charismatic, unifying leader. The movie starts with Challa’s mother, Queen Ramonda (Angela Bassett), who has assumed the throne, at least for the moment. His younger sister, the scientific prodigy Shuri (Letitia Wright), wants to honor her brother’s memory and fill his spot. The core of the whole kingdom is barely hanging on and seems vulnerable, as the outside world conspires to gain access to Wakanda’s reserves of vibranium, a rare mineral with daunting military and industrial uses. The benevolent global order that T’Challa led his nation into has given way to one based on deceit, subversion, and exploitation. Thanks to regal diplomatic skills and the fighting prowess of the Jabari, the Dora Milaje, led by the mighty Okoye Wakanda can hold its own against the United States and France. The king of Talokan is described as a demigod with a goblin-looking physique, some Comic-book fans will recognize him as the Sub-Mariner, a hero whose pedigree stretches. For “Wakanda Forever,” he is a villain, albeit one with a legitimate grudge against the people and kingdom. This sounds like too much plot summary, but that’s because “Wakanda Forever,” like many Marvel movies, has too much plot. There are a lot of characters to keep track of and it is most likely that they will be involved in whatever movie you’re watching. Many critics have enjoyed this movie because this is, above all, a special-effects-heavy action movie, there are fistfights, vehicle chases, underwater and midair battles, high-tech suits, and seat-rattling explosions, which is the main goal for a any superheroes movies. At the end of the movie thanks to In T’Challah’s absence, Wakanda has become, at least for the moment, a matriarchy, and “Wakanda Forever” displays matter-of-fact superhero feminism with strong franchised rights. And quite possibly will be. It’s called “Wakanda Forever,” and in the Marvel Universe, that sounds less like a slogan than terms of service guarantee.
