Oscar winner Barry Jenkins praises Ryan Coogler’s Marvel sequel

Black Panther: Wakanda Forever has been in theaters for a few weeks now and its impact on pop culture only continues to grow. The Marvel Cinematic Universe sequel had a lot of elements to deal with, from the real-life demise of franchise star Chadwick Boseman to advancing the stories of countless other characters. The latest creation to celebrate Wakanda foreverDirected by Oscar-winning Moonlight director Barry Jenkins, who shared a lengthy thread on Twitter praising the film, Boseman’s absence and the cultural significance of Tenoch Huerta’s Namor.

“The absence is acknowledged and the presence created in that acknowledgment is moving. Seeing this, there’s no way the recasting of the role could have been more thoughtful or honorable than this. Again, an impossible task.”

“I never thought a Marvel movie would have the space to see such involvement spread to an audience of MILLIONS worldwide; people who shared in common the Mayan language that Diego de Landa tried to eradicate through torture and fire in environments he could NEVER imagine. I am almost certain that in THIS film Ryan Coogler portrays a Mayan child standing over Diego de Landa’s recumbent body and, in a moment of pure feeling, that child takes the ( justifiable) revenge to repay the Landa’s scorch with a child’s own fire “I could NEVER imagine. For me, the Mesoamerican film in the film goes hand in hand with the mourning of both the human being and the character as the beating heart of the film. That they both resonate alongside the requisite thrill ride of superhumans dodging lasers and spears is beyond comprehension. impressive. I mean BEEEEYOND.”
