Wakanda Forever! In this very special edition of the Empire Podcast, we dig deep into the 18th movie in the Marvel Cinematic Universe: Ryan Coogler's Black Panther, the story of newly-crowned King Of Wakanda, T'Challa (Chadwick Boseman).
As usual, the podteam — Chris Hewitt, Helen O'Hara, Terri White, and James Dyer — are on hands to answer listener questions and talk about the film in extraordinary detail, Ulysses Klaue mixtapes and all.
But they're not alone. The podcast kicks off with Chris talking to two of the driving forces behind a movie that, even before its record-breaking opening weekend, felt like one of the most significant movies, not just in Marvel Studios' ten year history, but in the history of modern blockbusters.
First off, he talks to co-writer/director Ryan Coogler about all sorts of stuff, including the fate of major characters, the film's thematic preoccupations, and how he decided to end the movie.
Then, the movie's executive producer Nate Moore, who helped shepherd the film through production at Marvel Studios, tackles some more plot-specific questions. We'd tell you what they are, but this is a spoiler special after all. So, as usual, if you haven't seen the film, don't listen to this podcast until you've corrected that egregious oversight.
But if you have seen Black Panther, then sit back, turn up the volume, and enjoy.
