The arrival of T’Challa in Civil War was a welcome addition to the MCU and his arc provided the film with a neutral viewpoint away from the already established Captain America and Iron Man. Now with Infinity War looming, the prince of Wakanda has been given his own film to help establish himself and Wakanda into the MCU. The result is one of Marvel’s best, and possibly their most politically important movie to date.

The anticipation of Detective Comics’, or D.C.’s, top tier of heroes coming together is something that just isn’t felt by fans of the comics, but also anyone who has been following the development of this project. In 2013, Zack Synder was put in charge of directing the starting point for the D.C. universe, Man of Steel. That film was a success and was followed by the even more successful, but awful, Suicide Squad. In the same year we were also given the match up comic book fans have been waiting for with the underwhelming Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice. Though it was Wonder Woman that acted as a gleam of light for the universe. Anchored by an incredible performance by Gal Gadot, it became both a financial and critical success. Synder was hard at work on his vision of Justice League when tragedy struck him and his family with the death of his daughter. Joss Whedon, who had experience dealing with a group of heroes with the first two “The Avengers,” was brought on to finish about 20% of the film Synder had left unfinished. Then there were rumors that Whedon was specifically brought on to change the tone of the Sydner’s vision of this film and future DC films by adding the lightness and humor missing from Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice. So, with all that, how does a hybrid of two different styles pan out? Does it work or does it destroy the leg up Wonder Woman contributed?
