This essay interrogates queer erasure from the film Black Panther. The implications of queer erasure from one of the most recognizable and lucrative franchises in film history are particularly problematic as Black Panther envisions "a Pan-African past, present, and future" where queer bodies are both invisible and unwelcome. By continuing to relegate queer sexualities to spaces of Otherness in superhero films, the film reifies dominant discourses of heteronormativity and patriarchy, producing a paradoxical image of Black (queer) women.
