The latter is particularly poignant as Boseman won an Emmy for his performance voicing Star-Lord T’Challa on the series.
While Black Panther 2 is the latest film from Marvel Studios, Black Panther Collection is far from the first. In fact, these special MCU compilations have become something of a Disney+ tradition.
Earlier this year, and in preparation for Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of MadnessArriving on Disney+, the streamer released a Doctor Strange Collection.
Disney+ did the same this summer Thor: Love and Thunder.
But instead of revealing the Thor collection ahead of the threequel’s streaming release, Disney+ opted to share the theme library ahead of its theatrical debut.
It looks like Disney+ is sticking to the pre-theatrical model for Black Panther 2and joined Mark Ruffalo’s Hulk Collection as the latest to be added to the Marvel Studios section of the streamer.
Why the Black Panther collection is different
While the Black Panther Collection serves as a handy refresher up front Wakanda foreverit also stands as a testament to Boseman’s contribution to the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
But that’s not the only thing that sets this collection apart from the rest.
Those who choose to get to know his MCU journey may also discover parallels with Wakanda’s next Black Panther.
After all, T’Challa’s own MCU story began with a loss and his dealing with grief and regret.
So while this collection may have been intended as a pre-theater primer, it may actually strike differently after one Black Panther 2 display.
