After the sad passing of Chadwick Boseman, Marvel Studios were left with a tough decision to make – recast T’Challa in the MCU or have a new character takeover the mantle of Black Panther. In the end, Kevin Feige and his team decided to go with the latter option as can be seen from the new trailer.
New Black Panther Revealed?
While there has been much secrecy around the identity of the new Black Panther, we may have just gotten our answer in the form of movie merchandise. A new Black Panther Lego set to be precise.
The new set which is called ‘76213 King Namor’s Throne Room’ includes Namor, an Atlantean and Shuri. But if you look at Shuri closely, it looks like she is wearing the Black Panther suit from the new trailer for Black Panther Wakanda Forever. The gold accents on the legs as well as what looks like built-in arm cannons on the forearms that Shuri is known for.
If true, Lego will certainly be in Kevin Feige’s bad books. Do you think Shuri will be the new Black Panther based on this? Let us know over on social media @GeeksGonnaGeek. As always, thanks for reading.
