Wakanda Forever – What You Need To Know About Black Panther 2

Of all the films in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Black Panther: Wakanda Forever may well be one of the most anticipated…possibly even more than the Infinity War/Endgame coupling. This is the first MCU film to be released following the real-world demise of a leading actor. The studio decided not to recast the role; personally, I think John David Washington would have been a great Black Panther. 

What is Black Panther: Wakanda Forever?

Black Panther: Wakanda Forever was to have been a continuation of the story set up in Black Panther (2018). The tragic and untimely death of Chadwick Boseman in 2020 has meant that that has had to change, and this film has now become a tale of the leaders of Wakanda fighting to protect their nation from invading forces in the wake of King T’Challa’s death.

Characters, So Far, In Black Panther: Wakanda Forever Forever

As well as T’Challa’s family and friends, there are appearances by the various River, Mountain, Merchant, and Border tribes of Wakanda. And let us not forget the awesome Dora Milaje…the all-female elite special forces acting as bodyguards to the royal family.

There are rumors that Shuri may step into the Black Panther armor, but that is mainly based on a Lego set!

The Black Panther: Wakanda Forever Backstory

Normally I’d say that you would have had to have watched the earlier Black Panther outings; Captain America: Civil War, Black Panther, Avengers: Infinity War, and Avengers: Endgame. Any continuity has had to be re-written, but the publicity surrounding Chadwick’s death means everyone is aware of the situation. 

There was much speculation regarding whether or not they would or should recast the role of T’Challa.

After all, the MCU is not above recasting a role — Bruce Banner, James “Rhodey” Rhodes, Cassie Lang, Howard Stark, and even Thanos have all had face changes. In the What If…? series, several actors — like Black Widow’s Scarlett Johansson — didn’t join in on the fun and needed new voice casting. 

Sequels?

There will be further Marvel films. Of that, there can be no doubt. What is not known is whether there will be any more films based in Wakanda. Usually, whether sequels are made is all down to box office returns: I think this strand of the MCU may also be dependent on audience acceptance…

    I have some very uneasy feelings about Wakanda Forever. I don’t think anyone wants Chadwick’s role recast, out of respect. I was originally all onboard with Shuri taking up the Black Panther mantle, but then the actress’ anti-vax stance was worrisome and now I don’t know what to think.

    I’d have loved to see Killmonger redeemed and brought back. He could have had a Xena: Warrior Princess type arc where he tries to stay on the heroic path after committing many evils and sometimes still makes terrible choices. But now I think after seeing Killmonger’s actions in What If…? that this kind of door is shut to the character. I’m being a little vague in case people haven’t seen What If (which is just stunning work).

    IDK. There aren’t any heart-shaped herbs left, correct? Maybe the goal of the story is to track down and find new plants, then decide how to use them and who gets to have superpowers next in Wakanda. Maybe all of the Dora Milaje and official members of the Royal Family. It could be a good examination of ‘haves and have-nots’ — who deserves these powers and who choses who deserves them.

    a not especially good film, begets a not especially good sequel as hollywood bleeds out any remnants of imagination or innovation, making the same tired film over and over again. The mind has died of senility and the body is moving merely by inertia and momemetum before it collapses. there will be few tears for the death of hollywood, most will see it as narcistic suicide.
