The Black Panther: Wakanda Forever trailer ends with a tease of T’Challa’s successor, but the identity of the character in the suit is kept a mystery.
The Black Panther: Wakanda Forever trailer ends with a tease of someone taking up the mantle, but who is the new Black Panther? After the tragic passing of Chadwick Boseman in 2020, Black Panther: Wakanda Forever is aiming to honor and continue the legacy of both the actor and the character he so wonderfully brought to life, T’Challa aka Black Panther. Marvel Studios has confirmed that T’Challa will never be recast; however, the title of Black Panther is one that can be passed down and taken on by a new character – something already established in the MCU – and that will seemingly be happening in Phase 4, as seen in the first Black Panther: Wakanda Forever trailer.
The Black Panther 2 trailer is an emotional tease of what’s to expect, showing that the loss of Boseman will very much be felt onscreen and in-universe as Wakanda mourns T’Challa. At the same time, the nation also has to deal with an emerging new threat in the form of Namor, with the trailer setting up a war between Wakanda and Atlantis, as had been previously speculated. With this powerful new enemy, Wakanda will need its Black Panther, which the trailer sets up.
A new Black Panther is teased at the very end of the Wakanda Forever trailer, though the identity is kept a mystery, with only part of the suit and a quick flash of claws on display, both seen from behind. There’s no clear suggestion from the brief shot, but it does look like a female character in the suit, which leaves only a couple of possibilities, most likely either Shuri or Nakia. It has long been expected that Shuri will be the new Black Panther in Wakanda Forever, and the trailer certainly supports that notion. With the Black Panther 2 trailer about legacy and family, then it would make a lot of sense for her to take up the mantle at that point in time with her country so in need.
