Dog’s Movie House: “Black Panther: Wakanda Forever” Is A Stunning Cinematic Ode To Both The Black Panther And Chadwick Boseman!
Howdy Folks! It’s The Kendog here with a look at one of the most anticipated films of the year. “Black Panther: Wakanda Forever” has the unenviable task of continuing a beloved superhero series without the presence of the hero! When Chadwick Boseman passed due to colon cancer in 2020, not only was his death an enormous personal loss but also left writer/director Ryan Coogler with a real professional dilemma. How do you continue a beloved franchise without the actor responsible for the hero’s popularity? In Coogler’s case, you create a narrative that parallels the grief the cast and crew felt at Boseman’s untimely passing and frame it against the growing pains of a powerful (if fictitious) nation coming to terms with its place in the world. And the result is a stunning, emotional, and cathartic achievement in filmmaking!
