If there's a highlight of "Black Panther: Wakanda Forever," it's Namor the Sub-Mariner (Tenoch Huerta Mejía). For the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Namor was reinvented as a man of Mayan descent, with his underwater kingdom renamed from Atlantis to Talokan. He's still just as self-righteous as his comics self, though, and a scarier fighter to boot.Like Killmonger (Michael B. Jordan) before him, though, one can view Namor as an anti-hero, a man with some good ideas who's going about them in all the wrong way.

"Black Panther: Wakanda Forever" sends its characters — and the actors who play them — into the water, which can be a terrifying prospect if you're not confident in your swimming skills. But for Danai Gurira, who reprises her role as the Dora Milaje general Okoye, this wasn't a problem, since she came from a background as a competitive swimmer.Okoye has her own Disney+ series on the way, so we'll be seeing much more of her in the future, and Gurira will no doubt have her work cut out for her when it comes time to prepare for her starring TV role.

WARNING: This article contains major spoilers for "Black Panther: Wakanda Forever.""Black Panther: Wakanda Forever" is playing in theaters now, and the reviews are in: it's the most acclaimed Marvel movie of the year. Fans and critics have praised how the film handles the passing of Chadwick Boseman, the introductions of Namor (Tenoch Huerta) and Ironheart (Dominique Thorne), and even its mid-credits scene. By most accounts, writer-director Ryan Coogler nailed the difficult task of making a sequel to his masterpiece without the beloved Boseman.However, that doesn't make it a perfect film.

There's a lot to like about "Black Panther: Wakanda Forever," from its moments of homage to the late star Chadwick Boseman to powerhouse performances from actors like Angela Bassett and Tenoch Huerta Mejía. One of the things I love most about the movie, though, is how it successfully recaptures the magic of discovering a fully formed new world within the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

An exceptionally executed film can leave audiences pondering the meaning of life or their place in the world, or maybe the special effects are so well done you wonder how the filmmakers pulled it off.

Black Panther: Wakanda Forever Is About More Than A Single Marvel Superhero The character of Black Panther, as played by the late Chadwick Boseman, was first introduced into the Marvel Cinematic Universe in the 2016 film "Captain America: Civil War." That film was about a conflict between two factions of superheroes over whether or not superpowered freelance vigilantes should be allowed to continue their regular operations without oversight.

"His heart is really pure. And we should protect him at all costs." Actress Letitia Wright says of director Ryan Coogler. Marvel Studios has debuted a behind-the-scenes featurette for Black Panther: Wakanda Forever, the highly anticipated superhero landing in theaters on November 11th - later this week. Part of a final marketing push. This video focuses entirely on the tender magic of director Ryan Coogler, and how everyone loves working with him and his big heart. I've interviewed him before and can confirm - all of what they say is true.
