Wakanda forever is a sequel of the Black Panther movie which was a story of a young black King of Wakanda. He is an African king, and his kingdom has been isolated from the rest of the world for thousands of years.
In Wakanda forever there is no main character like T’Challa specified. The trailer of Wakanda Forever does not show a single central character. There are some important characters like Okoye who has her own separate Disney plus spin-off. We see Shuri Nikoui (Letitia Wright) in the film. We also see Namor and the Panther Goddess thanking people. We are introduced to the goddess of Wakanda whom most of the people on the planet worship.
Wakanda is a fictional country in the Marvel Universe. It is the home of Black Panther, a character created by writer-artist Don Felder and introduced in the comic book series “The Black Panther” (1968–1969).
Wakanda has been described as an African nation with a population of under ten million people.
It was Kevin Feigen who introduced the Black Panther in Marvel Cinematic Universe. He is also known for his role as a producer and editor of Marvel movies. He is also a part of the production team for “Black Panther”.
The first Black Panther film was released in February 2018. It has been praised by critics and fans alike. It has won several awards including two Academy Awards, two Golden Globes, and one BAFTA award among others.
The role of T’Challa/Black Panther was played by Chadwick Boseman who passed away last year. Kevin Feige told the press On Disney’s 2020 Investor Day, that character of T’Challa/Black Panther is not part of the sequel story. Film will solely focus on the exploration of the world of Wakanda as well as the rich and some new characters who have interesting personalities. He also announced that the film would be released on July 8, 2022.
Though the trailer of Wakanda Forever does not clearly mention T’Challa/Black Panther, but the film pays tribute to the character in its own way. On the walls of the great mansion, there are inscriptions in Wakandan language which read “Rest in Power King T’Challa Our Hero. It has been an honor. Wakanda Forever.”
Ryan Coogler and Kevin Feige said that character of T’Challa will be honored. We don’t know will be done to justify what happened to the character in MCU.
Chadwick Boseman’s brother, Derrick Boseman resisted the idea of completely taking out the character. He said his brother would have been rather happy to pass down the legacy to another actor instead of seeing the character of T’Challa completely retired from the MCU. He says Chadwick Boseman would never like to get the character to die with him.
Shuri’s character, played by Letitia Wright, seems pretty strong. In the trailer, we see that Shuri is getting ready to fight what seems like the forced of Atlantis Namor. She is going to be Iron heart lady in the MCU.
She does not seems like femme replica of Iron Man or superman but she has her own distinct personality which stands out. She has her own separate identity called Iron Heart. Her armors are different, not given by Iron Man or whatever. Her armors are much more advanced than other MCU
