Black Panther: Wakanda Forever has a big Avengers problem

Black Panther: Wakanda Forever is already a massive success at the box office, delivering a supercharged MCU event. From goosebumps to tears to exhilaration, you’ll experience everything in the span of almost three hours. But you’ll also realize that the plot is hardly perfect, and Wakanda Forever has a few glaring Avengers plot holes.

We’ve already discussed the biggest one, thanks to a detailed plot leak that dropped a few weeks before the premiere. But it turns out there’s an even more disturbing plot line that Marvel could have addressed with just a few lines of dialogue.

We’ll explain everything, but expect big spoilers to follow.

The big Wakanda Forever Avengers plot hole

Most MCU Phase 4 adventures share the same plot hole: The Avengers fail to intervene even though they absolutely should. They don’t show up in Wakanda Forever, either. Especially at a time when Wakanda doesn’t have a Black Panther.

The Avengers have been working as a group again since Infinity War. And we know from Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings that they’re actively monitoring all big threats. And Wakanda, through Okoye (Danai Gurira), has been very much involved in the Avengers’ work between Infinity War and Endgame.

Not only that but the Sokovia Accords have been repelled. The Avengers can intervene whenever they desire without having to fear any repercussions.
