Black Panther 2 will see the return of Letitia Wright (Shuri), Angela Bassett (Queen Ramonda), Danai Gurira (Okoye), Lupita Nyong’o (Nakia), Winston Duke (M’Baku) and Martin Freeman (Everett Ross).

With many details and references, the new MCU film leaves many situations for the future. We reveal below which mysteries the feature film did not solve.

Who will become the ruler of Wakanda?

After the death of King T’Chaka in Captain America: Civil War, T’Challa became the new supreme ruler of Wakanda. He went through a ritual that involved combat, thus making his position official.

However, when Black Panther dies, Ramonda becomes the leader of the country. Shuri, who would be another possible leader, seems fine with the situation, leaving Ramonda as the new ruler.

However, Ramonda dies, making Shuri the new leader. After Black Panther’s clash with Namor and Shuri’s victory, she moves to Haiti.

Meanwhile, the vacancy to become the ruler of Wakanda remains open, and it looks like the throne is leaning more towards M’Baku. If there is a third film, the film must decide between Shuri or M’Baku.

What’s next for Riri Williams?

Riri Williams, the Ironheart, is the main focus of the plot, which took Wakanda and Talokan into a battle that seemed never-ending.

The inventor of the device that detects vibranium was captured, but released. She contributed to the battle against the Talokan warriors.

The character becomes a heroine, and seems to recognize the risks after having proof of it. Everything indicates that it will be in the series that Riri will really be called Ironheart.

Are there other versions of Black Panther?

In Black Panther, Killmonger burns all the heart-shaped herbs that empower Black Panther, in an attempt to ensure that no one receives their gifts.

However, Shuri manages to reconstitute the herb, and manages to ingest it, becoming the new Black Panther. At the end of the movie, the people of Wakanda are planting the heart-shaped herb for future generations.

While Shuri is the new Black Panther, there are still no other existing versions of the character in the MCU along with her.

However, if one day Shuri is unavailable, someone else can take up the mantle and become the Black Panther, protector of Wakanda.

What will happen to Everett Ross?

CIA agent Everett Ross appears in the new film after meeting up with Shuri and Okoye, who had traveled to the United States.

They would like to know from him who had created the device that detects vibranium, and Ross ends up giving in the information. Because of this, he ended up committing a crime and is arrested.

The director of the CIA is Valentina Allegra, who is more present than ever in the MCU, and has been messing around behind the scenes with people like John Walker, the US Agent.

Later, Ross is rescued by Okoye, and can even get into a confrontation between Allegra and Wakanda. This could be cited in Thunderbolts or another MCU production.

What is Namor’s plan for Wakanda?

Namor wanted Wakanda to be allied with the Talokan government, asking to hand over whoever had invented the device, which possibly led humans to their unknown realm.

Throughout the film, Namor has been critical of the evils the surface world causes, and wishes to keep Talokan out of the human spotlight.

His people agree with his stance. After his defeat to Shuri, he understands that the two peoples need to have a truce, with no more bloodshed.

However, in the end, when Namora confronts him about peacefully leaving, Namor makes it clear that when the surface world arrives in Wakanda, the people of Wakanda will be Talokan’s ally.

The antagonist of Black Panther 2 thinks that Wakanda may not hold up against human resources, and that Talokan may have his chance against the surface if a war breaks out.

What does the introduction of T’Challa and Nakia’s son mean for the MCU?

The mid-credits scene features Toussaint, T’Challa’s son with Naki. It is revealed that his real name is T’Challa Jr, Prince of Wakanda.

He was kept secret from the people of Wakanda at the behest of the Black Panther, and is the rightful heir to the throne. Shuri, his aunt, is surprised to see him but happy to meet her nephew.

Being a child, he is too young to take on royal duties, and someone else will have to lead until he is ready.

In the future, he may be the new king of Wakanda, thus the leader with T’Challa’s blood, and who could even become the new Black Panther.

How can Namor help the X-Men in the MCU?

X-Men fans are excited to see the team introduced to the MCU. The first provocation was in Ms. Marvel, with the character revealed to be a mutant.

However, she doesn’t seem to be the only one. Namor refers to himself as a mutant in the new MCU film, despite it not being the first.

In the comics it is described that he is the first mutant, and his appearance in the MCU took a long time to happen.

While the X-Men seem to be a long way off, mutants are slowly emerging, and Namor is yet another character helping to make the reboot really happen.

Furthermore, Namor’s introduction suggests that there are many other mutants in the universe, who are apparently in hiding.

It is worth remembering that Deadpool 3 will still show Wolverine, with the return of Hugh Jackman, and will be the gateway for mutants in the MCU.

Black Panther: Wakanda Forever is in theaters now. The film must reach Disney+ coming soon.
