Here Are The Top 5 Political Themes Found In ‘Wakanda Forever’

Like its 2018 predecessor, ‘Black Panther: Wakanda Forever‘ has been a phenomenon. The Marvel film, which grossed an estimated $330 million globally during its opening weekend, had fans mourning the loss of star Chadwick Boseman while rooting for Wakanda and the underwater nation of Talokan simultaneously. The movie has launched two highly-anticipated new Rihanna songs, renewed Oscar hopes for co-star Angela Bassett, and even spawned some raunchy NSFW memes.

Here are five ways – major spoilers included – in which ‘Wakanda Forever’ dips into real world politics.
