One of the biggest movie hits of 2018 is about an African superhero. NEON starts with Wakanda and then shows parallels that stretch all the way back to the Middle Ages. It’s a great movie that full of fun and action, but also with an important message underlying all the bright colours and CGI. But NEON digs deeper, comparing the fictional country to a real, and fabulously wealthy, African Empire. Then showing how General Okoye had similar dilemmas to a knight living in the 12th and 13th centuries called William Marshal.
