When Black Panther premiered in February 2018, it was a moment of pure triumph: a celebration of both Black and African culture that was also a top-notch superhero movie. A lot has happened in the four years since — and a lot of it not so great. Now, a sequel has arrived, but can it recapture that original magic feeling?

Of course, the answer is no. The tragic death of Chadwick Boseman transformed Black Panther: Wakanda Forever into a somber tribute to the actor who brought King T’Challah to life. But director Ryan Coogler has tapped into a different kind of magic with his sequel. Less triumphant and more personal.

We’ll have tons of articles about Wakanda Forever on Inverse over the next few days, but you can read our official review now in today’s issue of Inverse Daily. And don’t worry, it’s spoiler-free.

Black Panther: Wakanda Forever is Marvel’s most moving epic yet
 
Black Panther: Wakanda Forever is both a leap into the future and a sunset-drenched mausoleum to Chadwick Boseman.

The sequel to 2018’s Black Panther casts the late Boseman in amber as it trades Marvel’s weary house style for longer shots where tender feelings breathe. Dissolve transitions, scarcely used by the editors of this 30-film franchise, render dreamlike meditations of bereavement. And this heavy tone is amplified by the severity of its fantastical conflict as Wakanda is threatened by a secret underwater kingdom of Talokan and its ruthless leader Namor.

From Marvel Studios and director Ryan Coogler, Wakanda Forever is a loving tribute to an actor whose regal oeuvre epitomized Black male excellence. He was Jackie Robinson, Thurgood Marshall, James Brown, and T’Challa. He will always occupy that last role, no matter who becomes Black Panther next. With its Black Panther sequel,the entirety of the Marvel Universe, including the real-life studio and fans, grieve a man who meant more than his role.

Why the inventor of the Oculus Rift made a VR headset that can kill
 
Palmer Luckey, the creator of the Oculus Rift and other virtual reality technology that now serves as the backbone of Meta's mission to build the metaverse, has made a VR headset that can kill. Specifically, the headset appears to be a modified version of Meta’s new Quest Pro headset based on photos Luckey shared on his personal blog

Why build a deadly VR headset? And how would that even work? The answers have to do with an anime, and the disparate work Luckey has been up to since being ousted from Meta in 2017.
