This Marvel Phase 4 has finally ended, and I am glad. Not all the movies in this Phase have been groundbreaking except the Spider-Man: No Way Home and Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness, this movie along with the others have been one of those movies you watch once and cannot survive a second viewing.

This is the 30th movie of the MCU and with the death of Chadwick Boseman, the whole MCU had to take a change. Black Panther himself is dead in the real world, so the movies had to take a new approach to this unfortunate incident. So, this Black Panther Part 2 must have a new Black Panther and we know that the mantel moved to his sister, Shuri.

When it comes to the plot of the movie, it took a different tone to what we normally are used to, the Wakanda are up against a foe who is known in the Marvel Universe as Namor. What we normally see is the bonding of this heroes, here they are on each other’s throat.

We soon discover that vibranium is not just a secret to Wakanda alone. A race who lives under the waters in their own region called Talokan where Namor is the king, also have a rich vibranium deposit. They like Wakanda use vibranium to enrich their own land and were not willing to share with others.

When the United States created a machine which can locate viibranium under the sea, Namor and his people attack the ship and sunk it, killing as much as they can.

The machine ends up in Wakanda and Namor visits the Queen and asks for the scientist who created the machine, he wants the scientist killed and will rage war on Wakanda if they do not deliver the person. Shuri goes looking for the person, to discover it is a young adult who created it and she tries to protect her, which led to them being captured. Now the Queen must save her daughter and do so without asking for help from any other country. Namor has warned that they do not want to be made known to the world.

The movie is about Wakanda vs Talokan. In the end, it was an ok watch, but I do hope we get stronger movies and shows in the Phase 5 of the MCU. Even though this movie seems to be on the path of being a box-office hit, I do wish Marvel does better.
