Someone is trying to make Wakanda the world’s newest wine region!
Three days after “Black Panther” hit theaters — and started smashing through box office records with vibranium claws — a Texas-based man named Davon Hatchett filed docs to trademark something called the “Wakanda Wine Fest.”
The application says the trademark would be used for “charitable donation services, namely, providing educational special events, seminars, workshops in the field of wine.”
Additionally, Hatchett’s filing includes usage for wine and food tastings, arranging events for social entertainment purposes and wine seminars.
Marvel already submitted documents to trademark “Wakanda” for a variety of uses back in November (none of which specifically included a wine festival) so they could oppose the potential wine fest.
TBH, we’re kind of excited about the thought of sipping T’Chardonnay or T’Cabernet with King T’Challa.
