Black Panther: Wakanda Forever has MCU Phase 4 as the current crop of movies come to a close. Ryan Coogler has delivered his sequel to fans all over and they're beginning to digest the film. As the weekend stretches on, there will be a lot more opinions as the general audience grows. Phase 4 has had a lot of different textures and tones. However, the one unifying theme for the phase has been loss and change. Avengers: Endgame has left a giant hole in the MCU, and this current crop of movies has been tasked with moving the cast of characters forward in some way. Wakanda Forever tackles not only these adjustments, but the loss of Chadwick Boseman as well. How people respond to it will be varied, but Phase 4 ended with a swell of conversation for sure.
"The reason [Black Panther: Wakanda Forever] anchors Phase 4 — and the Guardians of the Galaxy Holiday Special — is because the phases are all about introductions. And Phase 4, think about all the characters we've met," Marvel Studios chief Kevin Feige explains how Phase 4 came together with Marvel.com at the Black Panther 2 world premiere. "And now, finally, in the finale of Phase 4, looking at it by phases, we meet an entire new kingdom and a character who is the very foundation of what we do at Marvel."

It's official that Doctor Strange Multiverse of Madness and #BlackPanther #WakandaForever are my top two favorite movies of MCU Phase 4. Both are worth seeing in 4DX and IMAX. 🐈⬛✨🌊 pic.twitter.com/ZDOWuaCM9Z— Reika Sky 🏳️🌈🦋👹💮🏴☠️ BLINK CTRL (@kabukibutterfly) November 11, 2022
Phase 4 hasn’t been the greatest but I’m so happy they’re finally improving the quality of villains they bring into the MCU pic.twitter.com/oQ6a3D8w6Y— Nicholas (@NicholasPascar5) November 11, 2022
A wonderful start and finish to the first part of the Multiverse Saga. 💜 pic.twitter.com/nqhEkzGNgn— Scarlet Witch News (@scarletwnews) November 11, 2022
Perhaps biased but this was easily the best film of Marvel Phase 4. A worthy successor to the original. Angela Bassett carries the film emotionally. Namor is a problem. Ryan Coogler deserves an award. #WakandaForever #BlackPanther pic.twitter.com/hab3bLvY1I— Jay Lando (@BaronJayLando) November 11, 2022
