A French military chief has a bone to pick with Marvel Studios for its “false and deceptive” representation of his country’s soldiers in Black Panther: Wakanda Forever Black Panther 2 offered the deepest dive yet into international politics within the MCU, as Wakanda and Talokan waged war on one another while the rest of the world continued its pursuit of the precious metal vibranium 3D Flag Eager Printed Short Sleeve T-shirt Although the two primary countries involved in the conflict are Marvel’s fictional creations, as the MCU has done many times before, certain elements of Wakanda Forever somewhat resemble real-world events.For example, in Captain America: The Winter Soldier, Black Widow leaked classified SHIELD documents to the world, exposing its surveillance of everyday citizens. Those events closely mirror Edward Snowden’s real-world leak of NSA documents that proved the government organization was spying on citizens.Other Disney projects have also done similar things in using parallels to offer commentary on real-world dynamics. In many ways, Disney+’s Andor plays as a criticism of the world under former US President Donald Trump, except taking place in Star Wars’ galaxy far, far away.
