Where Does ‘Black Panther: Wakanda Forever’ Officially Rank in the Marvel Cinematic Universe?

Black Panther: Wakanda Forever was one of a kind. An emotionally charged sequel with the very real possibility of being underwhelming. Instead, it exceeded all expectations, becoming not just a profound tribute to one of this generation’s greatest actors, Chadwick Boseman, but becoming yet another powerful addition to the MCU.

Because it was so good I felt I could no longer wait to share where I rank this film in the MCU so here we are. Enjoy!

39. The Incredible Hulk

Who knew that this movie would now be one of the most important early films in the MCU? I’ve got to watch it again so I know who The Leader is by the time of Captain America: New World Order.

38. Thor

Thor has its moments but overall it’s pretty subpar.

37. Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2

My Experience after Watching ‘Black Panther: Wakanda Forever’

Four years ago when Black Panther entered theaters I remember being overwhelmed by how powerful it was. To see so many beautiful, intelligent, inspiring Black people on the big screen in a fashion that was 100% empowering was something I truly had never seen before.

It’s been four years since I’ve felt the power of this side of the MCU and Ryan Coogler did NOT disappoint with this sequel. He understands that sequels always have to up the ante and that means more characters, bigger action sequences, and even greater depth than what came before. He delivered that with Wakanda Forever, a film that never settles for being anything other than an emotional, ultra-serious story.

‘Enola Holmes 2’ Is an Enjoyable Sequel

When Enola Holmes came out two years ago I was expecting to be bored and maybe even annoyed with the new take on the iconic Holmes story. Instead, I was swept along for the ride, becoming entirely invested in Sherlock’s little sister, played by Millie Bobby Brown.

Just this past weekend, the film’s sequel, aptly titled Enola Holmes 2 came out and I am happy to say it was very entertaining.

I Can’t Believe We Only Have Three Episodes of ‘Andor’ Left

Wow, it’s been quite an adventure of sci-fi and fantasy television for the last couple of months. Andor is the last of the late-summer premiering series to enjoy and sadly, it’s coming to an end.

This series has been absolutely fantastic from start to finish, its slow-burn method of storytelling transforming into something that will be regarded as a highlight of the franchise for many years to come.

I think the thing I like the most about Andor is that it feels like a Star Wars novel brought to life. The way this story has developed and the amount of characters we’ve gotten a chance to follow and become invested in is something we’ve never had in this franchise. There are so many storylines happening at once, each with its own level of depth, that I’m always in awe at how the writers have managed to juggle these stories with such cleverness.
