New Black Panther: Wakanda Forever trailer reveals two Black Panther Helmets
November 3, 2022
Following the tragic death of Chadwick Boseman in 2020, Ryan Coogler and Joe Robert Cole (director and co-writer of the first Black Panther film) decided to rework the sequel to honor the late actor and his incredible sin as T’Challa.
So, while audiences are still coming to terms with Boseman’s untimely death, the sequel will tell the story of how the people of Wakanda mourn the death of their King T’Challa as he defends their country from new invading forces led by Namor, the King of Talocan.
Hence, the time has come to pass the mantle of Black Panther to another character, and for this, the producers have chosen Shuri, younger sister of T’Challa, a perfect and very reasonable candidate, as not only did she become the Black Panther in the comics but the leaked LEGO sets already suggest that the MCU will do the same.
Moreover, the official images of Wakanda Forever also show a Black Panther wearing Shuri’s famous vibranium gauntlets, a proof that would ensure her prominence in the sequel, which at the same time implies that Marvel is no longer concerned about hiding her identity as T’Challa’s successor.
Honestly, it is a film that has the whole community anxious, not only because MCU fans have already started to create their own theories, or because they want to discover the true identity of the next Black Panther, but also because this sequel will introduce a new character about whom there has also been a lot of speculation.
As you will see, King Namor will be making his debut outside of the comic book format, and many fans are excited to see what Marvel has prepared for this character, as he has been a sensation and, considering his abilities, which have mostly been presented in comics, expectations are on the rise.
So, if you want to know a little more about him, we bring you a note with everything you need to know about Namor before watching Black Panther: Wakanda Forever.
The Wakanda Forever trailer reveals two Black Panther helmets
Now, as we mentioned above, new footage and scenes have been revealed, with which we can infer that there is more to the story of T’Challa’s successor.
Also, in the most recent Wakanda Forever trailer, titled Time, we could observe two Black Panther helmets side by side right at minute 0:28. A detail that could confirm the theory that T’Challa will have multiple successors in this sequel.
This hypothesis emerged thanks to comments from Lupita Nyong’o and Danai Gurira. However, the cast members suggested that fans have yet to correctly guess the new Black Panther. What’s more, they even mentioned that “They’re not getting everything right.”
And while Shuri is almost certainly the next Black Panther so far, all signs point to other characters also having a chance to wear the suit in the next film. Who do you think is the new Black Panther, and who do you think will don the suit in the upcoming sequel? If you’ve run out of theories, all that’s left to do is wait. After all, there are only a few days left until the premiere of this new project.
