The nominations for the 95th Academy Awards have been announced, with plenty of healthy discussion around the films in the race to the trophy cabinet.


One of these titles is Black Panther: Wakanda Forever, which nabbed five Oscar nominations in total, including costume design, visual effects, best song, and makeup and hairstyling.

The film is an emotional one following the tragic passing of Black Panther star Chadwick Boseman in 2020 and Wakanda is also adjusting to the death of King T'Challa.

However, the nation faces a new threat in the form of an underwater kingdom led by the intimidating monarch Namor (Tenoch Huerta Mejía).

Can Shuri (Letitia Wright) and her allies take on this new threat and save Wakanda?

If you missed Black Panther: Wakanda Forever during its theatrical run, you'll be pleased to hear the streaming release date is almost upon us, with the film set to land on Disney Plus.

Of course, this will certainly make life easier when it comes to watching all of the Marvel movies in order.
