“Black Panther 2” has found a superhero successor in T’Challa’s sister Shuri, but after just one film, there will be another new Black Panther.
- The “Black Panther” sequel “Wakanda Forever” will have to do without its previous leading man Chadwick Boseman.
- With Letitia Wright’s Shuri, a successor has already been found, but this replacement is only short-lived.
- Already at the end of the film, Shuri will hand over the Black Panther position to another character.
“Black Panther: Wakanda Forever,” the sequel to the Marvel box-office hit starring Chadwick Boseman, has the difficult task of sorting out the successor to the late leading man. It’s been known for some time: Shuri, the sister of T’Challa played by Letitia Wright, will take over the role of Black Panther.
Now, however, new information is coming to light, according to which Wright’s ascension to the leading lady will be short-lived. At the end of “Black Panther: Wakanda Forever,” Shuri will give up the Black Panther post to another character.
This is apparently a request from Letitia Wright herself, who does not want to permanently become the new Black Panther in the MCU. So far it is not known who will play the role in the future, but many fans expect Nakia (Lupita Nyong’o) to be named her successor.
Shuri’s assumption of the role made sense, as she also became Black Panther in the comics. Now, without reference to a template, Marvel is likely to consider who is best suited for the future of the MCU. They certainly can’t go wrong with Oscar winner Lupita Nyong’o.
By the way, in “Black Panther: Wakanda Forever” we meet Namor as the villain, who is more or less Marvel’s answer to Aquaman. Namor is sometimes a hero and sometimes a villain, so he could return as an Avenger in later MCU films.
Black Panther 2: When does the film start on Disney+?
Black Panther: Wakanda Forever has been in cinemas since November 9, 2022. An official Disney+ launch date has not yet been set. However, we can expect the film to come to the Disney+ novelty program in February 2023.

The official trailer for “Black Panther 2” is epic yet sad. We are already given an idea of how Chadwick Boseman’s passing will be handled. It looks like you should take tissues with you to the cinema.
Black Panther 2: Plot
“Black Panther: Wakanda Forever” represents a sequel to “Black Panther”, but in typical Marvel fashion also makes reference to other films such as “Avengers: Endgame” and “Black Widow” or “The Falcon and The Winter Soldier”. In terms of content, the film picks up on the death of Chadwick Boseman and also lets T’Challa die.
Namor, the Marvel counterpart to DC’s Aquaman, is introduced as the antagonist for the residents of Wakanda. Further info is being kept under wraps. After all, Marvel fans should not be spoiled. With Riri Williams, by the way, another new character will be introduced, who will get her own Disney+ series with “Ironheart”.
