What Did Comicbook.com Think of the Sequel?
Comicbook.com's review highlights the grief resonating in a number of the decisions made for this film. However weighty the subject matter, Wakanda Forever managed to climb out of that despair into the light. The result is a Marvel movie that will assuredly move audiences to tears with multiple moments in the film. Somehow, the creative team threaded the needle between just tributing their fallen star into a sweeping epic.
"Ryan Coogler forged ahead with his eyes on unifying those contributing to this movie," Perine wrote. "The result is a tale of faith, identity, and legacy built upon the grief of the present. Wakanda Forever floats at the top of Phase 4 by allowing its emotions to overflow in order for something new to grow in its place."
