“Black Panther: Wakanda Forever,” the most eagerly anticipated American superhero film of the year, has finally opened in theatres, and fans are raving about it. Sadly, however, Chinese moviegoers have decided not to see it.
Black Panther, according to Wion, joins a lengthy line of Western movies that have been blocked or outlawed in China.
Although the ban’s cause has not been revealed, several sources suggested it might be due to the movie’s gay relationship scene.
Although homosexuality is not strictly against the law in China, LGBTQ content in movies and television has historically been censored there.
But ‘Black Panther 2’ is not the only film slated for a ban
Additionally, the newly released DC movie “Black Adam,” starring Dwayne Johnson, might be overlooked by the Chinese audience.
