New Marvel superhero flick Black Panther: Wakanda Forever (aka Black Panther II) has an uphill struggle to match its predecessor after losing its major star and having to deal with an MCU in decline.
However, not even reviewer C.D. anticipated the flipping film could be this chaotic.
This is the tale where Vibranium from Wakanda is being seized by certain nations through force. Shuri is asked by Queen Ramonda to continue studying the heart-shaped plant in order to create a new Black Panther to defend Wakanda, but she declines since she thinks he is now best left as a legacy historical figure. A vibranium-detecting device is used in the Atlantic Ocean by the CIA and U.S. Navy SEALs. The CIA then believes Wakanda is responsible for the onslaught by blue-skinned, water-breathing superhumans headed by Namor. Opps.
“My enemies call me Namor.” Well, since no one knew you existed and you’ve been concealed for hundreds of years, exactly who are your enemies, dude? But you have to agree, a bad guy with little wings on his ankles is pretty dang scary. Or, is it? C.D. explains his take on the matter.
