REVIEW: Wakanda Forever (2022): Marvel’s Strongest Script So Far
Star Cast: Letitia Wright, Angela Bassett, Tenoch Huerta, Lupita Nyong’o, Dania Gurira, Dominique Throne, Winston Duke, and Martin Freeman.
Director: Ryan Coogler
One of Marvel’s best scripts, with a smooth, exciting story that keeps moving forward. And since it’s understood that nobody will ever replace Chadwick Boseman as the Black Panther, this movie could not surpass the original. This sequel not only honours and celebrates a legacy but also makes sure it lasts forever.
Chadwick Boseman’s death for every fan was a personal loss, and director Ryan Coogler’s film delves into the reality of a world that continues to exist after a tragic loss is experienced by the audience. Wakanda Forever has all that a marvel fan would expect – chase sequence, action on both land and underwater. Martin Freeman’s role is limited in all marvel movies, and that’s disappointing a bit.
The story starts with the revered King TChalla’s funeral, who transformed into a crusading, BlackPanther, the defender of his people. However, now the people of Wakanda are left to fend for themselves without their protector while simultaneously attempting to maintain a feeble relationship with the United Nations.
While the whole world is eyeing to get Vibranium from Wakanda, Namor, the king of Talocan, an undersea kingdom, emerges as a new power amid all this power struggle. He is mighty and wishes to work with Wakanda because he has access to Vibranium independently. A new threat emerges in the aftermath of a country in grief. And Wakanda must figure out how to rescue their precious homeland.
