Black Panther: Wakanda Forever! A Guide For Casual Marvel Fans!

The Casual Marvel Fan's Guide to Black Panther

Soil high in vibranium is ideal for growing the heart-shaped herb. The vibranium’s properties imbue the herb with powers, and it is this herb that must be consumed by the aspirant to achieve the status of the superhuman Black Panther.

After killing T’Challa (Chadwick Boseman) and ingesting the heart-shaped herb himself, Killmonger (Michael B. Jordan) smashed what was left of the herb in the first film so that no one else could become Black Panther and defeat him.

T’Challa was about to die, but Nakia (Lupita Nyong’o) managed to save one of the souls and use it to revive him. Wakanda has no heart-shaped herb and no way to save the dying T’Challa or induct a new Black Panther at the beginning of Wakanda Forever.

In a later scene, Shuri (Letitia Wright) uses a relic from the vibranium-rich Atlantean city of Talokan to create a new heart-shaped herb.

Why Does Nakia Say That Her Son’s Name “Holds A Great History”?

His Haitian name is Toussaint, and she’s using that to refer to him here. One can assume his name honors Toussaint Louverture, the revolutionary who led the Haitian uprising that freed the island’s slaves and served as a model for anticolonial movements around the world.

Why Does Nakia Say That Her Son’s Name Holds A Great History

Because of his extraordinary leadership skills, Louverture became a folk hero, and his elusiveness earned him comparisons to tigers.

That’s why the big cat is a fitting symbol for this figure of liberation, as it combines the power of a human with the grace of a goddess.

The First Trailer For Black Panther Features An Emotional Tribute To Chadwick Boseman’s Performance As T’Challa

At San Diego Comic-Con, fans got their first look at Wakanda Forever, and they thought it was well worth the wait.

The video depicts the nation coming together in mourning after a tragic event, and it concludes with a glimpse of the new Black Panther without giving away too much about him or her at this time.

A popular theory among Marvel fans is that Shuri will succeed in Black Panther, and this theory appears to be confirmed by the second official trailer.

Neither Live Actors Nor CGI Will Replace T’Challa In Future Productions

The Walt Disney Company stated on Twitter several months after Boseman’s death, “Honoring Chadwick Boseman’s legacy & portrayal of T’Challa, @MarvelStudios will not recast the character, but will explore the world of Wakanda & the rich characters introduced in the first film.”

The president of Marvel Studios, Kevin Feige, has confirmed this, saying that there will be no “CG Chadwick” in the film.

So much of the world of Wakanda is depicted in the comics and in that first film,” Feige told Deadline in January 2021. “Wakanda is ripe for further exploration with more characters and more specialized subcultures.

In every case and from the beginning, this was going to be the story’s main focus. There will be no CGI Chadwick, and T’Challa will not be recast.

It was always about expanding the mythology and inspiration of Wakanda, and right now we have a lot of comfort in the fact that Ryan Coogler is working very hard on the script with all the respect, love, and genius that he has. The task of recognizing and appreciating Chad’s ongoing contributions to the world’s knowledge is also important.”

The Cast Is Dedicated To Carrying On Boseman’s Legacy

Nyong’o gave a brief update on the franchise’s future after Boseman’s death during an appearance on Good Morning America.

“That’s going to be a tough… It will be different to return to that world now that our king is gone “she told the interviewer back on March 3.

“And yet, I know that every one of us is committed to reimagining or continuing his legacy in this new Black Panther. I’m looking forward to working with everyone on some of Ryan Coogler’s incredibly exciting concepts.”

Ironheart, A New Superhero, Will Make His Debut In The Movie

Ironheart, aka Riri Williams, was recently confirmed to make her debut in Black Panther: Wakanda Forever before getting her own Disney+ series, as Kevin Feige revealed in an interview with

According to local Atlanta rumor mills, Dominique Thorne has joined the cast of Judas and the Black Messiah in the role of Riri Williams/Ironheart.

Black Panther: Wakanda Forever is currently in production, but you won’t meet Riri Williams until the sequel. Per Variety, Feige said, “I think she started shooting this week before her Ironheart series.”

Riri is a 15-year-old MIT student who, according to the Marvel comics where she first appeared in 2016, is basically smarter than Tony Stark and who uses reverse engineering to create her own suit of armor based on Iron Man’s.

While Williams receives Stark’s approval to become the superhero Ironheart in the comics, it appears that the MCU’s Ironheart will train with the Wakandans instead.

Final Words

During an announcement made in December 2020, Disney stated that Coogler “is writing and directing” the Black Panther sequel.

Coogler had previously discussed Black Panther 2 with IndieWire, saying, “Making a follow-up to a project that I’ve already directed is something I’ve never done before. Consequently, I anticipate a great deal of stress in that area; however, we intend to proceed as usual by putting all of our attention on the task at hand.”

A sequel was always a certainty because “Marvel wanted to keep the creative team as intact as possible,” as reported by The Hollywood Reporter.
