McDonald’s is giving foodies a Black Panther: Wakanda Forever exclusive. On Tuesday (November 1), the fast food chain launched their new Happy Meal, which each box featuring one of ten superhero toys based on the film’s characters, including Shuri, Okoye, Namor and Ironheart.
“The first Black Panther movie inspired a new generation of Marvel lovers – and that’s because of the powerful story it told, brought to life by an incredibly talented cast,” said Jennifer Healan, VP of U.S. Marketing, Brand Content and Engagement at McDonald’s in a press release.
“It set a whole new standard for representation on the big screen,” she continued. “And now, we’re excited to bring that experience to our restaurants and help fans see and celebrate their inner hero with this new Happy Meal – because seeing is believing.”
The Wakanda Forever Happy Meal will be available for a limited time to celebrate the film’s November 11 release.
Director Ryan Coogler spoke with Okayplayer about Wakanda Forever, sharing how he prepared to introduce new Aztec anti-hero Namor.
“I had read all that I could get my hands on in preparation for the first Panther,” the director said. “For this one I did the same thing. Read a lot of Namor’s runs. He has a lot of interactions with Wakanda peppered throughout them. There’s real intense ones in DOOMWAR, Avengers Vs. X-Men, and also in Secret Wars when you’re dealing with all the incursion stuff.”
