Black Panther: Wakanda Forever, recently came out, and it has caused a worldwide pause as MCU fans honor and lament Chadwick Boseman’s legacy as T’Challa. The sorrow and regret of the Wakandan people have been effectively captured in this second chapter. But what has constantly merited praise about this franchise is its willingness to show off the ferocity and toughness of its female fighters.
The events of Black Panther: Wakanda Forever are set after King T’Challa’s demise. The story revolves around Shuri (Letitia Wright), Nakia (Lupita Nyong’o), Okoye (Danai Gurira), and other Kingdom of Wakanda leaders as they fight to defend their country against the terrible undersea nation of Talocan.
After leaving her position as commander, Okoye, a popular favorite, was spotted putting on the Midnight Angels’ armor. The skilled warrior, who wasn’t initially a part of the squad in the comics, works with Aneka to lift her nation and people out of their sense of despair and failure.
The MCU is often one to bring a story from the comic book pages to the big screen, especially if it’s to tease an impending or potential sequel. One can only hope that Okoye’s story’s turn of events will set the tone for her Disney+ spinoff, which was announced in 2021.
Okoye and Aneka’s acceptance of their identities as the Midnight Angels at the end of Wakanda Forever suggests that their continued adventures may continue in the spinoff. The former commander’s exceptional experience offers potential for the series’ plot.
Before Wakanda Forever, Gurira appeared as Dora Milaje’s leader in three MCU movies: Black Panther, Avengers: Infinity War, and a brief cameo in Avengers: Endgame. Phase 4 will not stop Okoye from killing the enemy because of her reasoning at the end of Wakanda Forever.
At the moment, Black Panther: Wakanda Forever is playing in theaters.
