Black Panther movie is currently in production stage and fans cannot wait for it to hit the movie theaters. But have you ever considered what may happen if King T’Challa and his kingdom of Wakanda is real? If one thought it would be one kick-ass country, people are dead wrong.
Moviegoers were finally introduced to the Black Panther in Captain America: Civil War. While the character was initially out to kill Bucky Barnes, T’Challa later turned out to be more honorable than expected. He even granted Barnes asylum when he returned to cryogenic sleep.
That is all well and good on paper. But a closer look at Wakanda will reveal some disturbing truths. Cracked actually broke down some of these, along with humorous and at times, lengthy explanations. According to the site, Black Panther is actually the most dangerous villain in the Marvel universe.
Is Black Panther a Hero or a Villain?
The site advances several reasons for this, like the country’s isolationist culture and its tendency to keep advance technology to themselves. Cracked also posited that if Wakanda was real, there’s was a strong possibility that deceased Ugandan dictator Idi Amin would have killed more people. Wakanda’s location, which is said to cover the western side of Lake Victoria, would have also led to more African countries suffering.
But Cracked’s most compelling argument is that Black Panther is ultimately a fascist dictator. Even though he is a king, T’challa has a firm grip on the country’s military and also has super powers. His country does not seem to have any other politicians or political parties either.
Despite all that, there is a very good chance that Marvel fans will still go to theaters in droves to see the movie. The film is already in production and Lupita Nyong’o, Michael B. Jordan and Angela Basset have all signed up for still unconfirmed roles.
Black Panther will reportedly be released July 6, 2018.
