Last night was world premiere of Black Panther: Wakanda Forever in Hollywood (October 26). Those who were privileged enough to catch the sequel took to social media afterward to share their spoiler-free thoughts. So far, it seems that there has been almost nothing but praise for the film. Besides the stellar acting and action sequences, which was to be expected, folks were pretty much all in agreement that Wakanda Forever serves as a great tribute to the late Chadwick Boseman (T’Challa/Black Panther).
The film doesn’t hit theaters for another three weeks on November 11, so we’re going to have to patiently wait and avoid spoilers from now until then as the reviews begin pouring in. In the highly-anticipated follow-up to Black Panther, Queen Ramonda (Angela Bassett), Shuri (Letitia Wright), M’Baku (Winston Duke), Okoye (Danai Gurira) and the Dora Milaje (including Florence Kasumba), fight to protect their nation from intervening world powers in the wake of King T’Challa’s death. As the Wakandans strive to embrace their next chapter, the heroes must band together with the help of War Dog Nakia (Lupita Nyong’o) and Everett Ross (Martin Freeman) and forge a new path for the kingdom of Wakanda.
Here’s the latest trailer, showing a new villain, Namor, also known as the Sub-Mariner, played by Tenoch Huerta:
