Dwayne Johnson issues his congratulations to the Black Panther team

Dwayne Johnson took to his official Twitter page to congratulate the cast and crew of Black Panther: Wakanda Forever for their monumental achievement and express his excitement to see the latest Marvel Cinematic Universe film. Check out his post below.

Black Adam, which sees Dwayne Johnson taking on the role of Shazam’s arch-nemesis, was dethroned by Black Panther: Wakanda Forever after being at the top of the box office for three consecutive weeks. The Johnson starrer recently crossed the $350 million mark worldwide.

Black Panther: Wakanda Forever was directed by Ryan Coogler from a screenplay he co-wrote alongside Joe Robert Cole. The film stars Letitia Wright, Lupita Nyong’o, Danai Gurira, Winston Duke, Florence Kasumba, Dominique Thorne, Michaela Coel, Tenoch Huerta, Martin Freeman and Angela Bassett.

In Heroic Hollywood’s review of the movie Ryden Scarnato wrote “Black Panther: Wakanda Forever picks up after the events of Avengers: Endgame, with T’Challa’s death becoming permanent due to Boseman’s real-life passing and the story now following the world of Wakanda dealing with that grief. While the film is an ensemble, it ultimately rests on the shoulders of Letitia Wright’s Shuri and Angela Bassett’s Queen Ramonda.”

“When it comes to performances, everyone here is at the top of their game, and you can’t help but think that’s because of how intertwined the film is with real life. With Wright and Bassett serving as focal points, the two are the strongest of the bunch, with incredibly personal moments that are some of the most heartfelt we’ve ever seen in the MCU. Shuri’s larger role in the film, in particular, also works for those who might have reservations.”
