Black Panther:
Wakanda Forever
As An Emotional
Marvel Studios’ "Black Panther: Wakanda Forever" premieres in theaters on November 11, 2022, and early reactions from some lucky previewers are making it abundantly clear that director Ryan Coogler, along with the entire cast and crew, have produced yet another homerun. Comments have flooded social media, and most appear thoroughly impressed with all that the sequel has to offer.
Film critic @howatdk tweeted, "#WakandaForever is blockbuster filmmaking on another level. It surpasses the incredible first film with high stakes [sic] and thrilling world-building." @McBDirect agreed while praising its score and @RydenScarnato added, "There's never been a CBM like it. Really strong performances all around too."
Appropriately, it largely lacks that jokiness we've all come to expect from MCU productions. "Ryan Coogler's #BlackPantherWakandaForever, above all else, is cathartic. An emotional movie about loss, legacy and healing," said @Sean_OConnell, with @TheJosieMarie noting that while it's a serious feature, it's not without its uplifting moments.
The female cast is also celebrated for carrying the "Black Panther" franchise forward and according to @iKenny_J, amid all the emotion there are still some fun surprises to look forward to. All in all, from the performances, to the tone, to the soundtrack, to the story, "Black Panther: Wakanda Forever" seems like an absolute triumph for all involved.
