King empire

Wakanda still tied to the female king?

Black Panther: Wakanda Forever is a gold mine for black superheroines, a group with few opportunities to shine in the limelight. Women of color who could rival black men as superheroes were absent from the fray until the franchise’s first film released in 2018.

Starring Angela Basset, the film has a stellar cast that includes (a memorial for) Chadwick Boseman, Lupita Nyong’o, Letitia Wright, Danai Gurira, Riri Williams and many more. On the other hand, I am puzzled: does Black Panther: Wakanda Forever have anything to do with Sony’s The Woman King?

What do the female king and the black panther have in common?

Ethnic and tribal battles within the same race are a daily occurrence in these movies, even though Black Panther is based on an imaginary Marvel character. Additionally, the characters’ clothing and haircuts are very culturally distinct. Since the most fearsome warriors in both films were female, they sparked a flurry of debate and speculation.


There is no connection between the two films since The Woman King was released by Sony Pictures Distribution, while Black Panther was released by Marvel Comics and is based on a fictional character. Despite this, the two films have a strong connection due to the themes of slavery, colonialism, and black liberation they explore.

The female king must also discover the history of the Agojie warriors. These characters, like Dora Milaje in Black Panther, are based on real warriors. It’s so awesome we don’t even know what else it is.

Viola Davis in Black Panther: Wakanda Forever?

General Okoye is a brutal female general of the Dora Milaje. In the same way Okoye’s supporters were baffled, they also couldn’t figure out who was representing her. If Marvel did choose to recruit Viola Davis, who is well known for her previous performances and has already proven herself as a big-name performer, it wouldn’t be strange.

However, Danai Gurira was mistaken for Viola Davis by her fans. What’s even funnier is that Danai Gurira was mistaken for Viola Davis by the official stock photo agencies at the Academy Governor’s Ball.

The physical similarities between these two performers are undeniable. Best of all, they’re both well regarded in film circles. Danai Jekesai Gurira is best known for her roles as Michonne in the horror series The Walking Dead and Okoye in the Marvel Cinematic Universe films as an actress and superhero.

Viola Davis in The Woman King

It’s no wonder, then, that Viola Davis has appeared in several highly rated movies and TV shows. Gina Prince-Bythewood is directing the next American historical epic, which will star Viola Davis as General Nanisca.

According to IMDb, real events took place in the Kingdom of Dahomey, Africa’s most powerful empire, during the 18th and 19th centuries, which will be shown in the film. Additionally, an all-female military unit is said to have existed in the kingdom until 1904.

It is believed that he was in West Africa, in the present country of Benin. Western observers and historians have given them the name Dahomey Amazons because of their resemblance to the legendary Amazons of ancient Anatolia and the Black Sea.

Other black actresses who are making their mark

Both films have an excellent cast list of actors of African ethnicity. To repeat that, Marvel fans will see Letitia Wright, Lupita Nyong’o, Danai Gurira, Florence Kasumba, Dominique Thorne, Michaela Coel, and Angela Bassett as female leads in Black Panther 2.

Meanwhile, Sony fans will see Lashana Lynch, Viola Davis, Sheila Atim, Jayme Lawson. Thuso Mbedu, Adrienne Warren, Shaina West, Masali Baduza, Makgotso M and many more.

While some actresses like Shania West and the two films per se not being directly related, both have compelling reasons not to miss them. Black Panther’s female action heroes blend their battle sequences with the embodiment of these broad inner themes due to the extension of what a woman’s position looks like in film.

In addition to illustrating changing views on women’s roles in action films, giving prominent roles to women of color, especially black women, in these films speaks volumes about how women are treated on both trays. There’s no shortage of compelling reasons to watch Black Panther or The Woman King. including prominent female artists is just one of them.
