Nobody could have imagined that the partly villainous character of M’Baku would go on to become one of the biggest fan-favorites from Black Panther?
At the time of the release of Black Panther, fans hoped to be impressed by characters such as Shuri (Letitia Wright), Killmonger (Michael B. Jordan) and Okoye (Danai Gurira). Almost everyone was already a fan of T’Challa (Chadwick Boseman) after his debut in Captain America: Civil War. However, what came as a complete surprise was the strong support that was received by M’Baku (Winston Duke), once the film came out.
In fact, if you have checked Twitter recently, you would have seen how people are going crazy about this character!
M’Baku had a comparatively small, but, a key role in Black Panther, and he stole almost every scene that he was featured in. His comic book character is among the biggest enemies of T’Challa, but, the movie showcased his anti-hero dynamics, and some of the scenes involving M’Baku were extremely funny.
After watching the film, a lot of fans have praised Duke’s performance in Black Panther on social media and have urged to see more of M’Baku in the days to come.
There was a large number of fans who came out of Black Panther after having been swayed by the Jabari leader in an unexpected way.
Luckily we have already spotted M’Baku in the Avengers: infinity War trailer, therefore, it is certain that there will be another dose of him very soon.
You can watch Black Panther in theaters in your area now.
