In another interview with American Daily, he mentioned “I didn’t know if I could make another movie or another ‘black panther’ movie, because it hurt a lot. I was like ‘man, how could I open myself up to the feeling like this again?” 

“I was pouring over a lot of conversations that we had, towards what I realized was the end of his life. “I decided that it made more sense to keep going”. He also added

Black Panther: Wakanda Forever is being mentioned by critics as the best movie ever by Marvel Universe. Let’s take a look at the reactions from the fans 

One of them writes,“ #WakandaForever’s bigger in scope and scale than #BlackPanther, but its story is also one of Marvel’s most intimate and heartfelt. It’s definitely a Comic Book Movie, but it’s one that centers on grief and the grieving process rather than superheroics and spectacle. Full review soon” – @CharlesPulliam

Film critic Fico Cangiano wrote, “#WakandaForever is fantastic! Coogler delivers a soulful, wondrous sequel that packs an emotional punch & effectively explores relevant world themes. A beautiful tribute to Boseman’s legacy. Letitia & Tenoch are great, & the mid-credits scene is really moving. #BlackPanther” – @FicoCangiano

Some got a little too emotional, “#BlackPanther #WakandaForever was an EPIC emotional rollercoaster of an adventure!! CRIED NUMEROUS TIMES AND HAVE NO SHAME!

Letitia Wright’s performance as Shuri was one for the age! A complete elevation of her previous times!”

Variety’s Clayton Davis writes, “#BlackPantherWakandaForever is a beautiful tribute to Chadwick Boseman. A visual stunner, with Angela Bassett commanding every scene she inhabits. Rihanna’s “Lift Me Up” will do that for many. Another great post-credit scene that’s genuinely a jaw-dropper. Don’t know about Oscars.”

Calling it the best ever from marvel, “#WakandaForever is amazing! Coogler delivered an epic and emotional sequel that is an incredible tribute to Chadwick Boseman’s legacy. Letitia Wright, Angela Bassett, and Tenoch Huerta give their all in the roles.

This is easily the best movie from phase 4.”- @DorianParksnRec
