A list of what fans should watch before seeing Black Panther: Wakanda Forever might be helpful as the highly anticipated sequel hits theatres. The next film in the Marvel Cinematic Universe is generating a lot of anticipation. The film will introduce a new generation of heroes and reveal who will take T’Challa’s Black Panther mantle after Chadwick Boseman, the series’ lead, passes away. Additionally, Riri Williams, aka Ironheart, will make her MCU debut in Ryan Coogler’s film.
Here is a list of movies and tv shows to watch before Black Panther: Wakanda Forever.
Captain America: Civil War from 2016 marked T’Challa’s debut in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. The film by the Russo Brothers told the story of how Black Panther came to rule Wakanda after his father, T’Chaka, died suddenly at the hands of Baron Zemo. By accusing Bucky Barnes of the attack, the villain fakes everyone. In his intense fight with Captain America, Black Panther naturally sided with Iron Man because the Wakandan superhero was seeking vengeance against the Winter Soldier, who also happens to be Steve Rogers’ best friend. After the truth was revealed, T’Challa gave his new buddy Bucky sanctuary in Wakanda.
The first MCU film from director Ryan Coogler is still regarded as one of the most influential superhero films ever. The story showed the internal struggle for dominance between the main hero and Killmonger, played by Michael B. Jordan. T’Challa gains knowledge of what it takes to be a king as Killmonger attempts to get revenge for the death of his father, Wakandan Prince N’Jobu. Black Panther earned more than $1.3 billion at the box office and was a critical and financial success, making it one of the highest-grossing MCU films. Also, the movie created history by becoming the first superhero movie to be nominated for Best Picture by the Academy. Boseman, Jordan, Lupita Nyong’o, Danai Gurira, Martin Freeman, Daniel Kaluuya, Letitia Wright, Angela Bassett, Forest Whitaker, and Andy Serkis were a few of the other actors in the entire cast. In the sequel, most of the Black Panther cast will be back.
Everyone anticipated that the king of Wakanda would play a significant part in the climax of the Infinity Saga. Given the character’s fame, and that is exactly what happened. Black Panther and his army battle to protect the world from the Mad Titan in Wakanda during the epic battle between the Earth’s Mightiest Heroes and Thanos’ army. Sadly, T’Challa and his sister Shuri were erased from existence by Thanos’ snap, bringing the story to a tragic ending.
When T’Challa makes his on-screen comeback in Avengers: Endgame. To get his sweet revenge against Thanos, who could help but applaud for the king of Wakanda? The Avengers decide to take whatever steps are necessary to travel back in time and reverse the effects of the Blip after half of the cosmos vanished as a result of Thanos’ snap. With more over $2.7 billion in revenue, the 2019 blockbuster broke numerous box office records and is among the highest-earning movies ever. Black Panther contributed once more to one of the MCU’s biggest successes.
Even if someone only sees the MCU films, the plot of Black Panther would be rather simple. However, the TV shows have also developed a few of the Wakandan stories. The Falcon and The Winter Soldier brought back Ayo and some of Wakanda’s all-female special forces, the Dora Milaje. In order to bring Baron Zemo to justice for what he did to king T’Chaka in Captain America: Civil War. Even though the Winter Soldier was helpful in Zemo’s prison break, the plot once more focuses on the connection between Bucky and Wakanda.
Fans should add Marvel’s animated series to their list of things to watch before Black Panther: Wakanda Forever. Several episodes of What If…? featured stories set in or starring characters from Wakanda. In fact, T’Challa turns into Star-Lord and joins the Ravagers in episode two. Killmonger assumed the identity of Black Panther and joined the Watcher and the Guardians of the Multiverse. Boseman also appeared in the series and provided T’Challa’s final voiceover before passing away from colon cancer.
