Black Panther: Wakanda Forever is a 2022 American superhero movie based on the Marvel Comics character Black Panther. It is the follow-up to Black Panther (2018) and the 30th film in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. It was made by Marvel Studios and distributed by Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures (MCU). The movie is directed by Ryan Coogler, who wrote the script with Joe Robert Cole. Lupita Nyong’o, Danai Gurira, Winston Duke, Florence Kasumba, Dominique Thorne, Michaela Coel, Tenoch Huerta Meja, Martin Freeman, Julia Louis-Dreyfus, and Angela Bassett all star in the movie. In the film, after King T’Challa dies, Wakanda’s leaders fight to protect their country.
After Black Panther came out in February 2018, plans for a follow-up began. In the following months, Coogler worked out a deal to return as director, and in the middle of 2019, Marvel Studios confirmed that the sequel was in the works. Plans for the movie changed when Chadwick Boseman, who played T’Challa in Black Panther, died of colon cancer in August 2020. Marvel decided not to replace him in the role of T’Challa. In November of that year, it was confirmed that other main characters from the first movie would be back, and the title was announced in May of 2021.
From late June to early November 2021, filming took place in and around Atlanta and Brunswick, Georgia, as well as in and around Massachusetts. After that, there was a break so Wright could heal from an injury he got while filming. Production picked back up in the middle of January 2022 and ended in Puerto Rico at the end of March.
The first showings of Black Panther: Wakanda Forever was on October 26, 2022, at the El Capitan Theatre and the Dolby Theatre in Hollywood. The movie came out in the United States on November 11, 2022, as the last film in Phase Four of the MCU. Critics liked the movie and praised Coogler’s direction, the action scenes, the production and costume design, the cast’s performances (especially those of Wright, Gurira, Huerta, and Bassett), the emotional weight, the musical score, and the tributes to Boseman. Some critics didn’t like the length of the movie, though. The movie has made more than $571 million worldwide, making it the eighth highest-grossing movie of 2022.
