The release of Marvel’s first Black Panther movie in 2018 changed the superhero movie landscape forever. The film was a breakthrough success, becoming the first superhero film to be nominated for Best Picture at the Academy Awards. Additionally, it is also the first Marvel superhero film to feature a predominantly black cast and the first to be helmed by a black director.
The film was a celebration of African culture and heritage and showed the world that superheroes can come from anywhere. It was a powerful statement that resonated with audiences around the world. The success of Black Panther also opened the door to more diverse superhero movies. Black Panther certainly changed the landscape of superhero movies forever, and it’s a legacy that will continue to inspire future generations of filmmakers.
Since the release of the original Black Panther has seen more female-led superhero movies, Wakanda continues to forever pursue these diverse themes with a female lead. Adding to the mix of diversity, Wakanda Forever certainly features one of Marvel’s most iconic anti-heroes, Namor the Sub-Mariner, this time as the main antagonist. Disney altered Namor’s origin story to have a more Mayan background as opposed to the traditional comic book origin. This is a welcome change that fits perfectly with the Black Panther universe and connects with Marvel’s large Mexican fan base.
