What to Expect From Black Panther Wakanda Forever

Black Panther: Wakanda Forever, due out Nov. 11, is one of the most heavily anticipated Marvel movies since the first Black Panther dropped in 2018. Much has changed since then, though, most notably the tragic death of the Black Panther himself, Chadwick Boseman. Boseman and director Ryan Coogler were pivotal in helping Black Panther become one of the highest-grossing superhero films of all time as it broke several other barriers along the way. With Boseman gone, Coogler and company were tasked with picking up the pieces and working through grief to keep telling the story the late actor helped start. 

That challenging mission culminates in Black Panther: Wakanda Forever, a film with raw emotional depth and passion that has already been felt through two robust trailers. The footage is heavy and portrays how Boseman’s loss will be felt throughout the movie, but it’s also shown there will always be a way forward through dark times. From the introduction of Ironheart and Namor to Shuri possibly embracing the Black Panther mantle, there is a lot to look forward to in Wakanda Forever. We broke down some of the things we’re most excited about, and what we hope might happen and be revealed in the upcoming film.

This one’s a long shot… but maybe it’s not? Victor Von Doom, a.k.a. Doctor Doom, a.k.a. God Emperor Doom, has the potential to become the next Thanos-level threat for the MCU, and considering it’s already been confirmed that we’re headed toward Secret Wars (albeit in four years), the post-credits scene for Wakanda Forever would be a perfect opportunity to give Doom his MCU debut. It’s been established through the trailers and promotional material that Wakanda will be dealing with diplomatic issues following the opening of its borders and the loss of T’Challa.

Doom is also the ruler of a foreign land in the comics, Latveria, and while the fictional European kingdom has not been referenced in any past Marvel movies, it’s very possible that Doom made sure it stayed hidden, similar to Wakanda in the past. Doom and Black Panther also have a history of butting heads, and if any secret villain is hiding in the shadows that should reveal themself after the central conflict has been resolved at the end of Wakanda Forever, it’s Doctor Doom. We deserve it!
