When the first black superhero was introduced to the Marvel Cinematic Universe in cinemas in 2018, the phrase “Wakanda forever!” became popular among friends, colleagues, families, and global audiences.
Not only was it a historic achievement for the global cinema fandom, but Silverbird Cinemas Ghana also set a record that has yet to be surpassed. 16,000 admissions in the first four days of operation earned the nation’s number one cinema franchise bragging rights and the title of highest grossing cinema not only in Ghana, but also in West Africa. The rich blend of culture, bright and inspiring African costumes, rhythmic poetry of African drums, the glowing presence of smiles and unity all contributed to the premiere of Black Panther being a memorable phase in Ghanaians’ lives. There was truly a Wakanda experience like no other!!!!
Four years later, Black Panther returns to theaters under the title “Wakanda Forever,” a sequel to the original title. There is one missing piece, and it is none other than Chadwick Boseman. The world was shocked to learn that the main character had died of bowel cancer in 2020. The MCU fandom was shocked and perplexed as to who would inherit the enviable costume and become the new Black Panther.
We won’t know who we are until November 11th, 2022.
