Explained: The End of Black Panther: Wakanda Forever

Hello Guys, Welcome to Bollymax. today In this blog post, we share information on The End of Black Panther: Wakanda Forever. Not only is “Black Panther: Wakanda Forever” the most recent entry in the Marvel Cinematic Universe and the eagerly anticipated follow-up to 2018’s highly praised box office titan “Black Panther,” but it’s also a film in its own right.

The movie also pays heartfelt homage to the late, legendary actor Chadwick Boseman and his groundbreaking role as T’Challa, or Black Panther. T’Challa’s memory weighs heavily over the remainder of the film, which is once again directed by Ryan Coogler, after he loses his fight with an unidentified illness in the movie’s opening minutes (as a result of the unexpected, real-life death of Boseman in 2020).

In reality, many of the other characters’ actions are driven mostly by T’Challa’s death, especially those involving his mother Ramonda (Angela Bassett) and his younger sister Shuri (Letitia Wright). However, it gets worse as more tragic events occur in the movie, leaving Shuri with much more to lament after Namor (Tenoch Huerta) and the Talokans attack Wakanda and kill Ramonda by drowning.

Shuri was already feeling guilty and irate since she couldn’t save her brother despite her desperate attempts to do so, but the loss of her mother just deepens her anguish and makes her even more resentful. She therefore flees to the lab, where she has always felt most at ease and in charge, while now serving as the de facto leader of Wakanda.

She works on rebuilding the heart-shaped herb that Killmonger (Michael B. Jordan) destroyed in the first “Black Panther” movie there as one of her continuing undertakings. In “Black Panther: Wakanda Forever,” the third act opens with Shuri realizing she has all the information she’s been seeking to accomplish her mission. Here’s a closer look at all the significant things that happen during the movie’s action-packed climax.

Shuri re-creates the heart-shaped herb with Namor’s help

But before we move on to the third act, let’s take a step back. Early on in “Black Panther: Wakanda Forever,” Shuri persuades the Talokans to take her to their ocean empire when they confront her alongside Okoye (Danai Gurira) and Riri Williams (Dominique Thorne) on a bridge in Boston.

She makes a connection with Namor while she is there and learns the history of how his people came to dwell underwater. Additionally, Namor presents her with a piece of jewelry that belonged to his mother and was made from the plant whose leaves allowed the Talokans to flee the colonists in Mexico who were stealing their land.

When a plant plays a crucial role in giving the Talokans the power to abandon the land for the ocean, many viewers may suspect that it may be similar to the heart-shaped herb that Wakanda used to create the Black Panther given how many similarities the film suggests exist between Wakanda and Talokan, including being the only two places on Earth that have vibranium.

Although it takes Shuri a little longer to put those puzzle pieces together, once she has, she only needs to move a few molecules to use the plant from Namor’s mother’s jewelry to revive the heart-shaped herb.

It’s time to verify whether the heart-shaped herb Shuri successfully created in her lab actually exists. The traditional ceremony for becoming the Black Panther cannot be performed because of time constraints, but Shuri, Riri, and Nakia (Lupita Nyong’o) carry out the essential elements of the process in the lab using Shuri as the subject.

Given that Shuri is currently Wakanda’s ruler and chief scientist, it is questionable whether she is the greatest candidate for the position. Black Panther therefore feels like it might be one thing too many for her. Nakia doesn’t question Shuri’s decision to assume the responsibility or suggest that someone else would be a better fit.

Shuri plans to confront Namor after becoming Black Panther

Shuri previously said in “Wakanda Forever” that she does not subscribe to many of the spiritual or ritualistic beliefs that many Wakandas do. It is also evident that, despite her assertions that the ancestral realm is not real, there is a small part of her that expects to see one of the several family members she has lately lost there as she takes the liquid made of the heart-shaped herb.

But Killmonger shows up to welcome Shuri as she awakens in that ethereal dimension. Killmonger’s presence has both Shuri and the audience in disbelief. Killmonger asserts that Shuri is the most similar to him, at least right now, among all the members of Wakanda’s royal family, despite Shuri’s resistance to hear it.

Killmonger’s observations suggest that Shuri is developing a vengeance compulsion similar to how Killmonger did. Shuri doesn’t currently believe that to be the case, though.

Ironically, her next action is to don her newly manufactured Black Panther outfit and visit M’Baku (Winston Duke) and other senior Wakanda authorities to inform them of her plans to battle Namor and the Talokans. M’Baku appears hesitant at first, presumably because he is worried about Shuri’s mental state, but eventually he and Shuri resolve to work together to fight the aquatic creatures. They started to execute their strategy for luring the Talokans out.

The Wakandans lure the Talokans with a vibranium detecting device

The Wakandans set up a vibranium detector somewhere in the Atlantic Ocean. Because America and other nations have been searching for vibranium in the ocean and are thus extremely close to discovering the Talokans’ waterlogged city, Namor and the Talokan people initially revealed themselves.

The Talokans are upset that they might be discovered because they have successfully kept their house concealed for hundreds of years and would prefer to maintain it that way. They are upset with T’Challa in particular since his revelation of Wakanda and its vibranium to the world sparked a hunt for more of the metal.

Talokan may also become a target for vibranium-hungry nations as the only place with vibranium outside of Wakanda. The Wakandans are counting on the vibranium detection device grabbing the Talokans’ early notice because the stakes are high for them.

The Wakandans wait for the Talokans atop a massive ship, but they don’t have to worry about their enemies biting the bait for very long. Soon after the Talokans emerge from the sea, they discover the Wakandans on the ship prepared to strike.

This triggers a fierce battle in which numerous Wakandans take part, including Nakia, M’Baku, Okoye, Ayo (Florence Kasumba), and Aneka (Michaela Coel). Wearing an improved version of the Iron Man armor she created in Boston, Riri assists in luring Namor to Shuri as the Talokans and Wakandans battle on the ship in the air and seas.

Shuri weakens Namor, only to end up fighting him

The plan by Riri and Shuri to catch Namor is effective, as Shuri uses a contraption she has set up in her spacecraft that resembles a very large hair dryer to confine Namor. Why? Due to mutations that allowed him to be extremely skilled at swimming, fighting, and flying, Namor had displayed enormous power in the sea, land, and air.

However, Shuri and her allies had already discovered that Namor’s skin was moist in each of those situations. They think that Namor will be considerably weakened if his skin is dried out, making him much easier to fight.

Dehydration may seem like a ridiculous handicap, but Namor isn’t the first comic book character to experience it. One such is Aquaman, who is also weakened by a lack of water and is essentially the DC equivalent of Namor (or vice versa, if you want). Despite how ridiculous it may sound, the movie takes this scene, as well as Namor’s heroic efforts to fend off Shuri’s drying machine, very seriously.

Namor is a tough fighter, though, as he uses his spear to get away from Shuri and her machine while being weakened by the drying gadget. Shuri gives the order for her ship to go to the desert, where it eventually crashes just a little bit ashore. Shuri dons her Black Panther outfit as they land, and she and Namor start to fight.

As the Wakandans prepare to retreat, the Talokans bomb their ship

The Wakandans are getting ready to flee as this is happening in the water. But as they proceed, a gang of Talokans riding two humpback whales sails up to their ship. They bombard the ship with an enormous quantity of tiny bombs, which eventually bring it down.

Mass casualties and terror result from this. Fortunately, all of the familiar characters survive unharmed, and despite the damage, the Wakandans abandon their retreat, which intensifies the combat between them and the Talokans.

Despite the undoubtedly horrific casualties suffered by the Wakandans, there is yet hope for this conflict. After defeating Attuma (Alex Livinalli) earlier in the movie on the bridge in Boston with merciless precision, Okoye fights her again.

She was expelled from the Dora Milaje as a result of her inability to prevent Shuri from being captured by the Talokans during that fight, although she is currently sporting the Midnight Angel outfit that Shuri made for her.

Okoye beats Attuma this time, whether it’s the outfit or just her drive to succeed. In another scene, Riri is rematching with Namora (Mabel Cadena), the Talokan warrior who knocked her unconscious on the Boston bridge. And this time, just like Okoye, Riri triumphs.

When hope seems lost, Shuri gets help from two unexpected sources

Shuri and a wounded Namor are fighting each other in the desert at the same time, and at first it looks like Shuri is winning until Namor gets his spear back and stabs Shuri in the stomach, stopping her in her tracks. Namor acknowledges that things could have gone differently before beginning to move toward the ocean.

Clearly, Namor still believes, as he did earlier, that Wakanda and Talokan ought to band together to confront the entire world in order to safeguard both their nations and their vibranium. Unfortunately, Shuri is no longer in a position to argue with Namor because it appears that she will most likely pass away from the blow.

She remembers her interaction with Killmonger on the ancestral dimension, where he asked her if she wants to be petty like him or noble like T’Challa, while she struggles there. She appears to have the energy necessary to spring back into action since, in the following frame, she is abruptly flipping in front of Namor and halting his movement toward the water. While she is still shielded by her suit, she causes a huge explosion that seriously hurts Namor.

Then Shuri appears ready to murder Namor as she stands over him. She begins to recall everything that has happened to her over the previous year, including the passing of her mother, the destruction of Wakanda by Talokan, and T’Challa’s death, as she looks down on him with her weapon poised to strike a killing blow.

When she finally spots her mother, she is urged to “Show them who you are.” While vengeance has eaten both of them, Shuri urges Namor that their people must not be consumed by it. Shuri swears to keep Talokan a secret from the rest of the world once Namor submits to her.

A truce is called and, as things return to normal, tantalizing story threads are left dangling

Flying to the scene of the conflict between their peoples, Shuri and Namor order an end to the fighting and announce a peace between Wakanda and Talokan. The main struggle of the film is resolved, and the people begin to lead more regular lives.

They planted the heart-shaped herb that Shuri recreated in Wakanda. Riri is sent home by Shuri without the Ironheart suit she designed for her, but she does not return empty-handed because Shuri has mended the father’s car that Riri was working on in Boston.

Then, there is a gathering of all of Wakanda, which “Black Panther” movie devotees will recognize as the ceremony T’Challa underwent to formally assume control of Wakanda. This time, Shuri is the intended recipient of the ritual, but M’Baku enters the scene instead of the princess as a ship flies in and Shuri is introduced. He declares that he wants to confront Shuri for the crown as he leaps off the ship.

Namor reassures Namor that the surface world will once more come for Wakanda and, when it comes, Wakanda will have no choice but to turn to them. Namora confronts Namor about surrendering to Wakanda in the ocean, a move she is not too happy with.

Namor is apparently still of the opinion that the world will eventually assault Wakanda in search of vibranium, and he is willing to wait until that happens. But it also implies that he is not nearly the reconciled foe he first appeared to be when he and Shuri decided to call a truce.

In the meantime, Okoye in America frees Agent Ross (Martin Freeman) from CIA captivity and triumphantly claims she has never previously seen a colonizer in chains. After Ross was detained for giving secrets to her and Shuri earlier in the movie, Okoye’s actions might have been a little gesture of appreciation. In one way or another, it appears that the alliance between Ross and Wakanda will only strengthen.

Shuri lets go, and a surprising character is introduced in a mid-credits scene

Shuri is discovered in Haiti, where Nakia currently resides, not at the ceremony in Wakanda like she was supposed to. Shuri walks to the beach by herself just before the credits start, where she lights a fire on the sand and burns T’Challa’s funeral robes. Ramonda attempted to carry out this ceremony with Shuri earlier in the film, but Namor abruptly interrupted them.

The action then resumes on the beach in the mid-credits scene. Nakia comes over to Shuri while she is sitting in the sand and gazing out toward the lake with Toussaint (Divine Love Konadu-Sun) by her side. Shuri, whom Nakia addresses as “Aunt Shuri,” is introduced to the little youngster. Shuri is taken aback when she first finds that this is T’Challa’s son.

According to Nakia, T’Challa and Ramonda were aware of Toussaint and made the decision to hide their child from the Wakandan populace. T’Challa ordered Nakia to keep his kid away from the burial when he found out he was about to die. He also prepped his son. These were undoubtedly loving gestures, but one can’t help but wonder whether keeping Toussaint away from Wakanda may make him bitter toward his parents and Wakanda in general.

However, despite being moved so far away in secret, T’Challa and Nakia appear to wish to recognize the boy as the rightful heir to Wakanda’s throne as seen by his seeming contentment when he tells Shuri that Toussaint is his Haitian name but that his real name is T’Challa Jr. However, after Shuri and T’Challa Jr.’s brief discussion, the credits roll, and “Black Panther: Wakanda Forever” ends with a vow that Black Panther will return. It is unclear what this could signify for the leadership in Wakanda at this point.
