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.

Gay Marriage: "You don't have to go to the wedding if you don't like it! So two people who are in love can't get married because it hurts your feelings? That's wrong."

Batgirl Variant cover: "How dare they do this?! I don't care if you like the cover and want to buy it. It offends me and it should be banned!"

Ladies and gentlemen you are witnessing the Horseshoe Theory at work.
