That's where a good director comes in. The beauty of Wakanda done well is when they can combine both elements without it looking silly. That's why a Black Panther movie needs a director that understands that Wakanda has many facets beyond "mysterious and rich." It's a country where some people are materialist, some are traditional, some are a bit of both, and some people are something different entirely. They all can't just be one type of Wakandan, so they find a way to fit in the various tribal religions in perfectly with the advanced technology.
