The Black Panther and the people of Wakanda are fighting to protect their home.

In the sequel to Marvel’s Black Panther, starring Chadwick Boseman, who played King T’Challa, the Black Panther and the people of Wakanda are fighting to protect their home.

As T’Challa lays dying from an illness that his sister, Shuri, believes can be cured by the ‘heart-shaped herb’, she attempts to synthetically recreate the herb after it was destroyed by Killmonger, but fails to do so before T’Challa succumbs. (Tragically, the story aligns with the death of Chadwick Boseman in 2020).

One year later, Wakanda is under pressure from other nations to share their vibranium, a nearly indestructible element that crash landed as meteorites from outer space millennia ago, with some parties attempting to steal it by force. Queen Ramonda implores Shuri to continue her research on the heart-shaped herb, hoping to create a new Black Panther who will defend Wakanda, but she refuses, owing to her belief that the Black Panther is a figure of the past. In the Atlantic Ocean, the CIA and U.S. Navy SEALs utilise a vibranium-detecting machine to locate a potential vibranium deposit under water. The expedition is attacked and killed by a group of blue-skinned water-breathing superhumans led by Namor, with the CIA believing Wakanda to be responsible. Namor confronts Ramonda and Shuri, easily bypassing Wakanda’s advanced security. Blaming Wakanda for the vibranium race, he gives them an ultimatum: deliver him the scientist responsible for the vibranium-detecting machine, or he will attack Wakanda.

Black Panther: Wakanda Forever screens at Ballina Fair Cinema and Palace Cinemas this week.
