Following the release of Marvel Studios’ new trailer for the highly anticipated sequel Black Panther: Wakanda foreverFans are convinced Letitia Wright’s Shuri will take on the role of Black Panther due to a subtle detail.
The upcoming film, slated to hit theaters November 11, will see Queen Ramonda (Angela Bassett), Shuri (Wright), M’Baku (Winston Duke), Okoye (Danai Gurira) and the Dora Milaje fight to to protect their nation from opposition world powers following the death of King T’Challa (originally portrayed by the late Chadwick Boseman, who died of colon cancer in August 2020).
Toward the end of the trailer shared by Marvel today (October 3), audiences see the resurrected Black Panther suit being carried by an anonymous being as they descend through an opening above and land on the snowy ground below.
In the comments, many fans have responded with guesses as to who will become the new Black Panther, arguing for either T’Challa’s surviving sister Shuri or his former lover Nakia (Lupita Nyong’o).
“Great to see more of the new Black Panther in a suit – he definitely looks like Shuri or Nakia,” commented one.
“I also think it’s Shuri, but it could very well be Nakia,” wrote a second.
However, one argued: “You guys really aren’t paying attention if you think it’s Nakia.
“Even the mask matches Shuri’s previous face paint. She’s the main character, hate her all you want, it doesn’t make sense that Black Panther is Nakia. Also, all of the toys for the film feature Shuri as the new Black Panther,” they added.
“EXACTLY, and why is the poster like that if she isn’t?” one agreed.
Another added, “Okay now I’m 100 percent sure it’s Shuri the Black Panther.”
Black Panther is expected to hit theaters on November 11th.
