23. Black Panther: Wakanda Forever

Black Panther: Wakanda Forever might just be the most important movie of Phase Four of the MCU. While it certainly follows in the footsteps of previous titles in the line-up in setting the stage for new heroes, new stories, and new chapters, this one is about paying tribute to one of the MCU’s brightest stars Chadwick Boseman.

The beloved actor’s tragic passing in 2020 was felt around the world, as it was clear just how much of an impact he had made on people. And Ryan Coogler, Kevin Feige and all involved in Wakanda Forever made it their mission to ensure that the sequel was a love letter to that legacy. The movie honors Boseman by honoring T’Challa, as those in Wakanda carry on his legacy in a movie that can only be described as a beautiful and heartfelt tribute.

With a string of incredible performances (including a stunning turn by the incomparable Angela Bassett), and one of the MCU’s strongest antagonists in Namor (Tenoch Huerta), Black Panther: Wakanda Forever lives up to the high standard of its predecessor, all while paying the ultimate tribute to its beloved star. And even though it’s a little longer than it needs to be, it is, without question, one of Phase Four’s best titles.
