Black Panther: Wakanda Forever
It has been two long years since the tragic passing of Chadwick Boseman and our hearts haven't been the same since.
We knew that following the 2018 movie "Black Panther" would be no easy task but just from watching the movie trailer for Black Panther: Wakanda Forever we knew that this sequel would be an incredible movie and tribute to Chadwick.
Without giving too much away, it's safe to say that King T'Challa's suit is resting in good hands with everyone involved.
Black Panther: Wakanda Forever is out now in cinemas worldwide.
