Black Panther: Wakanda Forever’ Has A Mysterious New Black Panther

In December 2020, after the demise of Chadwick Boseman who used to portray Black Panther, one question that concerned everyone was what would happen further to the Black Panther. Eventually, Marvel decided to keep the series on without recasting T’Challa. The question was- Which Wakandan was up to the task? later, which supporting cast member would then be moved to tentpole star?

However, On Saturday, July 23, 2022, after the release of the trailer for Black Panther: Wakanda Forever, including the revelation of T’Challa’s death in the upcoming film. There were hints regarding who is within the vibranium suit when it ultimately emerges in the trailer.

Here’s the three possibilities regarding what this film has for us. 

Will Shuri Become The New Black Panther?

In the Marvel Cinematic Universe, one can’t expect a more precise answer than Shuri, T’Challa’s sister (played by Letitia Wright). She has shown the required capabilities, both in terms of brawn as well as brain which is of course more significant. She has the royal blessing that may or may not be vital to Pantherhood. And maybe the most essential: in the comics, this has already occurred.

In addition, the trailer also took us to the story where we see Shuri’s rise. Ramonda says “my entire family is gone,” recommending that whatever disaster took the life of T’Challa may have emerged to take Shuri’s life also. We can expect that Shuri is concealing herself and also following the Wakandan biotechnology secretly that would get the heart-shaped herb back, allowing for the chrism of a new Black Panther.

Then, she could team up with Ramonda for T’Challa’s last rites, and the surprising part is that she geared up the full Black Panther attire at the climax of the film or that “my entire family is gone,” statement could be regarding when Thanos briefly killed T’Challa and Shuri. Regardless, there are evident emotional and canonical routes to Shuri turning Black Panther. 

Maybe the sole factor that reduces the possibility of this twist in the storyline is that Letitia Wright annoyed many fans with her anti-COVID vaccine clip over the internet and also terrified many coworkers by supporting such opinions on the film set.

However, kindly note that a few other actors linked with the MCU have said things that aren’t related to the Hollywood lead than Wright’s, hence this may not turn out to be a dealbreaker for her.

Will Okoye Be The New Black Panther?

Okoye (played by Danai Gurira) in the Panther suit would be a curveball, though she would be definitely a logical option that would ensure Wakanda in proficient hands. She leads the Dora Milaje, the Wakandan Seal Team 6 and has been Avengers’ actual member. 

Can a non-royal Wakandan become Black Panther? Who would lead the Dora Milaje? These are some points that reflect small hurdles in the path of a screenwriter.

Will Nakia Be The New Black Panther?

Nakia (played by Lupita Nyong’o) is going to be T’Challa’s descendent, and it is easy to think that Nakia may be a choice. The reason behind this is not that they were complicated romantically rather it was because Nakia was one of the closest political advisors for T’Challa as well as his humanitarian qualms. Her political influence resulted in the opening up of Wakanda.

Nakia is a member of the War Dogs — the Wakandan CIA and has amazing fighting abilities. However, one can learn elite fighting abilities. Seeing Nakia as the new Black Panther would definitely be an intriguing underdog story.
