Ryan Coogler‘s ‘Black Panther’ has become a cinematic sensation. Chadwick Boseman is an outstanding hero, Michael B. Jordan easily walked away as the best Marvel Cinematic Universe villain, and the gorgeous world of Wakanda opened up a new realm of the MCU with enough real-world commentary to match.
The film gives fans lot to love, but the biggest surprise and highlight from ‘Black Panther’ turned out to be the Women of Wakanda; Danai Gurira‘s general Okoye, princess/genius/everything good in the world Shuri (Letitia Wright), superspy Nakia (Luptia Nyong’o), Queen Mother Romonda (Angela Bassett), and of course, the fighting Dora Milaje.
With ‘Black Panther’ arriving on home video next week, Marvel Studios has revealed two new behind-the-scenes featurettes all about the film’s female warriors and leaders. The first video focuses on the warriors and the extensive stunt training it took to bring their various combat styles to life. The second centers on the female-empowered leadership in Wakanda and Bassett’s performance as Romonda.
Marvel has really upped the ante in the girl power arena. One of the most memorable moments of ‘Avengers: Infinity War’ as the Avengers fought with Thanos (Josh Brolin) and his alien army in Wakanda. One of his “children” Proxima Midnight (Carrie Coon) corners an isolated Wanda Maximoff (Elizabeth Olsen). Proxima, with her usual dramatic flair, points out that Wanda is all by herself, and will die alone. We then hear the familiar voice of Nathasha Romanoff (Scarlett Johansson) saying, “She’s not alone.” Natasha and Okoye start a badass girl fight, and Wanda eventually uses her magic to stop Proxima from killing Natasha by flinging her into one of the giant tanks rolling around. Amazing.
