In light of the tragic death of Chadwick Boseman, fans have known this for quite some time Black Panther: Wakanda Forever would be a unique film. It’s undoubtedly gone through a lot of changes, not to mention the production suffered more than one setback as they tried to make it all a reality. Despite all the struggles they’ve had, the film is set to be released later this year.
While it hasn’t been officially revealed yet, rumors have suggested that when Wakanda returns to the big screen, he will be dealing with Namor – the leader of the underwater nation of Atlantis. In the comics, the two have a very antagonistic relationship, so their appearance wouldn’t be too far-fetched.
The person likely to lead the charge against her threat is Letitia Wright. She will also be rumored to be the one to assume the titular mantle of Black Panther as she takes over her late brother’s on-screen role, which she played for years.
While fans are still waiting for the project’s first trailer, new images of some key characters have been revealed.
New look at Shuri and Okoye
Thank you to some new discovered Sprite merchandise, fans now have their first look at Letitia Wright’s Shuri and Danai Gurira’s Okoye in the upcoming Marvel Studios movie Black Panther: Wakanda Forever.
Shuri wears a smart looking purple suit that has a notable Wakanda style while sporting a new haircut. Some kind of tattoo is on her right hand and her left wrist has her Kimoyo beads on it.
Also featured is Okoye, who looks almost exactly as she has been portrayed in her last three MCU appearances.
Shuri gets a new look, Okoye stays the same
Of the two, Shuri is the only character to have a new look. She remains stylish but what stands out the most is the new haircut as she trades in her longer tresses for a shorter and curly style. Her outfit is also a bit more casual than what was seen in 2018 Black Panther.
The princess is also endorsing what appears to be a new tattoo, but what it represents isn’t clear.
As for Okoye, she looks exactly the same with seemingly no surface differences in this image. Hopefully she’ll get an updated look at some point in the film, since her outfit mostly stayed the same Black Panther and both afterwards avenger movies.
Unfortunately, these images don’t really give any more information or context as to what will happen in the anticipated sequel. Hopefully fans won’t have to wait long to see what’s in store for them.
Black Panther: Wakanda Forever hits theaters on November 11th.
