Sci-fi and fantasy author Nnedi Okorafor promises that Wakanda Forever will add more depth to the trio and show their more vulnerable sides.
“I’m always interested in a challenge, so writing a narrative where it doesn’t feel heavy-handed but I can develop the characters through little subtle things [creates] my favorite moments,” Okorafor told Vogue. “You feel that you can relate to these characters, and feel they are real, not just iconic, but also human.”
Wakanda Forever: The Amazing Spiderman is set to be released in June.
As for the blockbuster Black Panther, it will be holding down that no. 1 spot at the box office for the fifth week in a row.
