The premiere of Wakanda Forever has given us the first reactions of the fans and it seems that Tenoch Huerta stole the show with Angela Basset.
Black Panther: Wakanda Forever, the new Marvel movie starring Letitia Wright, Lupita Nyong’o, and Tenoch Huerta, had its world premiere on Wednesday, October 27 in Hollywood, prior to its premiere on November 9 and 10.
Some creators and commentators on social networks had the opportunity to see the film and have already offered their first reactions, which – although they are not so reliable about the quality of the film – suggest that it could really be Marvel’s best work. in the year, highlighting the performances of Huerta (who plays the antagonist Namor ), Angela Bassett ( Queen Ramonda ), and Letitia Wright ( Shuri, the new Black Panther ).
“ Wakanda Forever is extraordinary”, mentioned @Orlandoenelcine, a member of the Critics Choice. “He handles loss, loss, and revenge with maturity and seriousness, which is rarely seen in the MCU. Black Panther is still the jewel in her crown. Letitia Wright, Angela Bassett, and Tenoch Huerta have some of the best performances we’ve seen all year.”
Creator Kevin McCarthy noted, “ Wakanda Forever is a cathartic tribute to the legacy of Chadwick Boseman. He reminds us of his monumental impact and that he is truly with us. Great performances from (Danai) Gurira, Basset, Wright and (Dominique) Thorne. Tenoch Huerta was AMAZING.”
Commenting on the film, Brian Davids of The Hollywood Reporter said: “It’s Marvel’s most powerful and impactful movie to date. It’s heavy and dark in the way it needed to be and mostly ditches the studio’s signature tone. The craftsmanship levels up in every conceivable way and the performances live up to the hype.”
The comments generally highlight the acting work while also applauding the musical work of Ludwig Göransson, in addition to some highlighting the use of Rihanna’s song “ Lift Me Up ” , which at the time of this note has not yet been officially released. Some of the reviews take time to clarify that it also has its flaws but overall the view is positive.
While these initial reactions aren’t usually that reliable, the fact that some professional critics have been invited, and their feedback is positive, suggests that it really could be one of Marvel’s best films to date.
Black Panther: Wakanda Forever opens on November 10 in Mexico with a preview on November 9.
