“The first film in my opinion was a very strong film. It had a well-versed cast, was well-written and the soundtrack was great. I’m particularly excited to see where they will take the second film and I think it will be an entertaining watch” said Jake, 20.

“I’m excited for the new film but I hope they don’t try and replace Chadwick with Shuri’s character, as much as I love her, his character can’t be replaced” said student Abbie, 20.

“I liked how the first film worked into the MCU while also giving it a different feel and perspective. I’m looking forward to the new film, however I feel as if it’s been changed massively to respond with Chadwick’s death, as the first film ended on a somewhat positive note so they could have left it at that” said student Lola, 20.

After receiving some feedback, Twitter appeared to be the best place to find out what those who have witnessed the film early had to say, and the opinions were very mixed.

“It’s a masterclass of storytelling” says Sheraz Farooqi, Critics Choice Film Critic and Journalist.

On the other hand, Stephanie Zacharek, TIME Film Critic, said “With no Chadwick Boseman, it’s missing a measure of magic”

The film has received countless positive reviews, including a high Rotten Tomatoes rating at 86%, but not everyone enjoyed the film. Telegraph Film Critic Robbi Colin claimed “Black Panther: Wakanda Forever was about as bad as Marvel gets” rating it as one star and stating “With respect no-one’s going to claim the wait has been worth it.”
