Girl power in "Black Panther: Wakanda Forever"
After the death of "Black Panther" star Chadwick Boseman, the story continues without the African king and superhero T'Challa he plays, but not without Black Panther.

Letitia Wright, Angela Bassett, Danai Gurira and Lupita Nyong'o star in the sequel. In the 30th film in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Wakanda is threatened by Namor, ruler of the mysterious underwater kingdom of Talocan. As they mourn the loss of T'Challa, Princess Shura, Queen Ramonda and company must prepare for war against the mighty Talocans.
