Black Panther - Wakanda Forever 4

New Wakanda Forever Trailer Makes Shuri As New Black Panther More Likely | Watch Trailer

The new trailer for Black Panther: Wakanda Forever reveals a lot about the upcoming MCU sequel, including the extreme likelihood of Shuri being the next Black Panther.

As reported by Screenrant, since the death of Chadwick Boseman in 2020, a major talking point surrounding further Black Panther appearances and movies in the MCU has been over who will portray the titular hero.

While there was some desire for Black Panther to be recast in order to continue the character’s legacy, Marvel Studios and director Ryan Coogler opted not to find another actor for the role, out of respect for Boseman and his portrayal of T’Challa.

When the sequel to Black Panther was announced, Coogler initially stated that the film would focus on the fictional country of Wakanda as a whole as opposed to being a story centered on the Black Panther character.

However, as the release date of Black Panther: Wakanda Forever has moved closer, it is clear that the movie will feature a replacement for T’Challa’s Black Panther, with the mantle being passed down to someone else.

While the movie will likely still be more of an ensemble-focused piece, centering on the supporting characters who inhabit Wakanda, it makes sense for Marvel to have someone take up the Black Panther mantle for the MCU’s future.

The latest trailer for Black Panther: Wakanda Forever all but confirms one of the most popular fan theories for the identity of the next Black Panther: Shuri.

The trailer’s final shot features the new Black Panther in a striking gold and black suit reminiscent of Killmonger’s costume from the first movie.

Yet it’s much more feminine in physique, which seemingly confirms Shuri is the next Black Panther.
