According to Rotten Tomatoes, the recently-released Black Panther: Wakanda Forever received a 94% audience score and 84% rating.

In detail, Black Panther (2018) portrays the story of T’Challa, the heir to a hidden but advanced kingdom of Wakanda, and how he must step forward to lead his people into a new future.

The movie received overall positive reviews, however, before the release of the next installment, the lead actor who portrayed T’Challa, Chadwick Boseman, died battling cancer.
