Marvel’s Black Panther: Wakanda Forever is officially Certified Fresh on Rotten Tomatoes.
The review aggregation website Rotten Tomatoes has announced that Ryan Coogler’s Black Panther: Wakanda Forever is now “Certified Fresh” on its platform, becoming the only Marvel Cinematic Universe movie to accomplish the feat this year. The Marvel Studios release currently has a 84% score from 328 reviews by Tomato-approved critics.
“A poignant tribute that satisfyingly moves the franchise forward, Black Panther: Wakanda Forever marks an ambitious and emotionally rewarding triumph for the MCU,” reads the official critics consensus on Rotten Tomatoes.
Wakanda Forever is also dominating the box office
Black Panther: Wakanda Forever opened in theaters this past weekend, bringing in $331.3 million at the worldwide box office by Sunday night. 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.”
