Marvel Studios held the world premiere of Black Panther: Wakanda Forever tonight in Hollywood. Reviews won’t pour in until November 8th, but first impressions have been shared on social media by attendees of the world premiere. Check out these glowing social reactions!
The emotional weight of the film is to be expected, with the story dealing with the death of T’Challah, mirroring the real-world passing of actor Chadwick Boseman.
#WakandaForever is exactly the cathartic experience I hoped it would be, helping us move past our grief while watching the Wakandans fight to do the same. The intro of Namor was incredible, the story bittersweet and packed with emotionally charged twists. pic.twitter.com/3k3AGYHXq7

It promises to be a cathartic experience for fans of Black Panther.
Praise for actors Letitia Wright (Shuri) and Tenoch Huerta (Namor), plus a reminder that the show isn’t over just because the credits started to roll.
However, there’s no need to stay all the way through the credits… for now. Remember that The Avengers had a post-credit scene added after its Hollywood premiere, famously filmed that night with the cast reassembled for some shawarma.
“The best Marvel film since Avengers: Endgame,” says Samuel Leggett Jr.
Of course, art is subjective and nothing will ever be for everybody.
The film is full of girl power.
“The future of Marvel is bright” – Meghan Cooper
Better than the Best Picture nominated original? That would make this a must-see!
It sounds like Ryan Coogler has done it again. Marvel Studios’ Black Panther: Wakanda Forever claws its way into theaters on November 11th.
