We are a week away from the release of Black Panther: Wakanda Forever, and the many TV spots and short promos continue to come. As we've said, this is where minor spoilers could be dropped, so if you can wait a week, you should wait a week to watch this stuff. This one doesn't seem to spoil much of anything, but it teases one aspect of what Wakanda is dealing with.
It appears that the plot of the movie isn't just Namor coming in and doing his thing. It also appears that everyone thinks that Wakanda is vulnerable without a Black Panther to protect it. This country has avoided European colonialism by shutting itself off from the world but recently revealed what it could do. The moment the world sees weakness in them, they look like they will take advantage of it. Not exactly subtle in the messaging.
