In this episode we’re back in the Marvel Cinematic Universe with Black Panther: Wakanda Forever. The sequel reflects real life as the people of Wakanda mourn the loss of their king T’Challa, played by Chadwick Boseman who passed away in 2020.

The future of Wakanda is again at risk with the introduction of Namor, the king of an underwater nation of people. As T’Challa’s people confront this new foe, the question remains: Who will take up the mantle of Black Panther?

Our ATMI film buffs got together on Zoom to talk about the movie, how it honored the legacy of Chadwick Boseman, the themes of colonialism within the story, and where the Marvel universe seems headed from here.
