David and Jean introduce their new podcast series, MCUniverse in which they dive deep into all things Marvel. They look at the end of Phase 4 which is marked by Black Panther: Wakanda Forever before discussing the future of the MCU in Phase 5. They pull from the decades of comic book lore to speculate on what’s coming next in the upcoming films and TV shows.
The awesome presence of Chadwick Boseman is definitely missed, but don’t let that get you too down! Marvel produces yet another gem (or Infinity Stone, ha ha) for their catalog. Black Panther: Wakanda Forever is an action-packed movie that also explores delicate levels of grief AND delivers on great CGI. The astounding performances from Angela Bassett, Letitia Wright, and Lupita Nyong’o will have you saying, “Wakanda Forever”!
Our next First Run movies will be Glass Onion: A Knives Out Mystery and Avatar: The Way of Water!

Ryan Coogler’s Black Panther is a great super hero film, and an even better launching point into interesting discussions about the politics of colonialism and liberation. Starring Chadwick Boseman as the Panther himself, and Michael B. Jordan as the best Marvel villain since Magneto, the movie is a constant challenge to one’s complacency and sense of justice. Wakanda looks amazing, the cast is fantastic, the world they are building is both visually and philosophically amazing, to the point that one of the films weaknesses is that we were desperate to learn and know more.
