Liberatory Alternatives and Liberal Containment in Black Panther

The film commodifies alternative politics for mass consumption and profit while also prying open a representational outside to our current colonial reality. It holds in tension the contradiction of feminist, anti-colonial Wakanda with the narrative form of masculine superhero origin story in a massively profitable franchise, pushing at the potential and limits of what can be imagined as alternative.
