‘Black Panther: Wakanda Forever’ is certified fresh

Black Panther: Wakanda Forever has a lot going for it, and according to critics, the filmmakers managed to pull it off. The film sits at a nice 86 percent on Rotten tomatoes. As one of the last projects in MCUs Phase 4, and a major sequel to a cultural landmark, expectations were high. While it isn’t quite just as highly ranked as its predecessor, 86 percent is really nothing to snort at.

Critics have said that the film really manages to feel like a moving tribute to the late Chadwick Boseman, while at the same time managing to create its own identity. Another important contributor to the film’s success was the appearance of Namorwho is apparently an excellently written villain. Tenoch Huerta has also received praise for making one of Marvel‘s eldest character righteous in his first major appearance.

The film is expected to make around $365 million in its opening weekend, and that Rotten Tomatoes score will certainly do it some favors in that department. Fortunately, despite a meandering Phase 4 that some critics have criticized as lacking direction, Black Panther: Wakanda Forever seems to be getting things back on track. In fact, the Critical Consensus section of Rotten Tomatoes calls the film: “A poignant tribute that satisfyingly moves the franchise forward, Black Panther: Wakanda Forever marks an ambitious and emotionally rewarding triumph for the MCU.”

Despite being one of the best placed Phase 4 films to date, it still lags behind Spider-Man: No Way Home and Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings. In fact, it’s technically only tied for 15th overall out of all Marvel feature films currently listed on Rotten Tomatoes. Of course, there is still time for more reviews to come in and the number is subject to change.

Black Panther: Wakanda Forever opens in US theaters on November 11, 2022.
