    And this is why i won't see the movie. I can enjoy people turning into huge, green, rage monsters, or gods with hammers, but I draw the line on a country in Africa with superior scientific knowledge.


That's the appeal to me. You're getting to see a great what if story. What if there was a country in Africa that had never been carved up by Europeans and was allowed to achieve greatness.

Wakanda has always been one of Stan and Jack's better ideas. Maybe even better than they ever imagined it was.




Agreed. 100%. It harkens back to the great trading empire of Ghana, Mali, and Songhai, they flourished with art, and science and literature and riches while Western Europe lived in the darkness of the Middle Ages. I feel like I read somewhere they were Stan's inspiration for the kingdom of Wakanda.
