What to expect from “Black Panther: Wakanda Forever”


Riley Wiggins, Features Writer

It’s been almost four years since the release of “Black Panther,” and fans are eagerly anticipating the sequel. While we don’t know too much about the upcoming movie, here’s what we do know. “Black Panther 2” is expected to be released on Nov. 11, 2022, and Letitia Wright is expected to play the new Black Panther. Additionally, Ironheart will be introduced in the film. The plot is rumored to revolve around Atlantis invading Wakanda after the death of T’Challa. 

One of the most intriguing aspects of “Black Panther 2” is that Shuri is expected to take over as the new Black Panther. In the comics, Shuri is more than qualified to take on the mantle of Black Panther; she was even temporarily granted the title by her brother, T’Challa. It will be interesting to see how this plays out in the movies, especially since T’Challa is such a beloved character. 

Ironheart is another character who is expected to be introduced in “Black Panther 2.” In the comics, Ironheart is a teenage girl named Riri Williams who creates her own suit of armor and becomes a superhero. It remains to be seen how closely the movie will stick to her comic book origins, but it should be exciting to see a new superhero join the MCU. 

The plot of “Black Panther 2” is still largely unknown, but there have been rumors that Atlantis will invade Wakanda after the death of T’Challa. This would certainly be an interesting direction for the story to take, and it would give audiences a chance to see more of Wakanda than we did in the first movie. 

Chadwick Boseman played the “Black Panther” in previous films, but he sadly passed away in 2020.

 “I’m definitely interested to see how this one plays out in tribute to Chadwick. He made a huge impact on the Marvel cast,” said junior Gates Hinton. 

While we don’t yet know too much about “Black Panther 2,” we’re definitely excited for its release in 2022. Shuri taking over as the new Black Panther and Ironheart being introduced are both intriguing developments, and we can’t wait to see what happens when Atlantis invades Wakanda.
