The movie aimed to mirror real-life and pay tribute to its Black Panther Chadwick Boseman. Boseman had passed away in 2020 after a long private battle with cancer. In the movie, the characters fight to protect the nation of Wakanda from world powers in the aftermath of King T’Challa’s death. Along with the return of Queen Ramonda (Angela Bassett), Shuri (Letitia Wright), M’Baku (Winston Duke), Okoye (Danai Gurira) and the Dora Milaje (including Florence Kasumba), viewers were also introduced to several new characters. Tenoch Huerta Mejía plays Namor, ruler of a hidden undersea nation and the major anti-hero of the movie.

For her performance as the Queen, Bassett won Best Supporting Actress at the 80th Golden Globe Awards. The film has received six nominations at the 28th Critics’ Choice Awards.
