One of the aspects of Black Panther that has stood out with the audience is Killmonger. He is often regarded as one of the best villains in the MCU. One thing that they will say about Killmonger is that he is someone that many people will agree with. Even the main protagonist has seen his point and the tragedy of the character. One thing that producer Nate Moore says about the Black Panther film is that the main antagonist of the film is not evil for his goals. He just has some really bad methods.
The one thing that Killmonger wanted to do in the film was not become the King of Wakanda. Being a king was the means to an end. Instead, he has wanted to help the less fortunate overcome oppression. He was sort of a Robin Hood in a way. He has wanted to gain the wealth of a culture in order to use it to the better of others in the world. In a way, Killmonger does achieve his goals for Wakanda in that T’Challa decides to use Vibranium for the good of other cultures in the world.
This is one of the best antagonists a film has had. This could start a new method of looking at antagonists. One other thing that could be done in order to make a compelling antagonist is bring about a relationship in which both the protagonist and antagonist learn from each other. While there may be a little bit of tension, it is solved through conversation as opposed to just fighting it out with one man standing and one man dying. Black Panther has brought a lot of good things to the industry.
