All You Need to Know About T’Challa’s Son in Black Panther: Wakanda Forever

All You Need to Know About T'Challa's Son

Heavy Spoilers from Black Panther: Wakanda Forever!

Black Panther: Wakanda Forever has finally fulfilled its gigantic role of concluding Phase 4 of the Multiverse Saga of the MCU. The movie turned out to be an emotional roller coaster cleverly dealing with several serious issues faced by the nation of Wakanda after they lose their respected leader. But before the final credits roll up, this movie also follows MCU’s usual habit of teasing a major future element in their mid-credits scene. In this case, it was King T’Challa’s son, Toussaint.

The Ryan Coogler directorial presented the secret son of King T’Challa with Nakia before the final credits rolled up. The fans were left confused by the first look of Toussaint as they couldn’t recall the character being seen anywhere in any comics by Marvel.

Who is Toussaint in Black Panther 2?

The sequel to the 2018 Black Panther starring the late Chadwick Boseman had a lot of work to do in the last movie of the ongoing Phase 4. With the existing task of presenting the emotional condition of the Wakandans after the loss of King T’Challa to the introduction of Namor, the movie was perfectly balanced. But the main surprise came at the end when we were shown the secret son of T’Challa with Nakia.

In the mid-credits scene of the movie, Nakia introduces a boy called Toussaint to Shuri. She further revealed that it was her son with T’Challa and she was secretly raising her son in Haiti so that he can stay secluded from the politics and all the royal drama of Wakanda. But she also assured that when the time comes, he would rightfully take the throne of the vibranium-rich nation.

Then we were shown a brief sarcastic interaction between the Letitia Wright’s character and Prince T’Challa before the final whistle of the ending was blown. Now the audience found itself in a state of confusion as this character came out of the blue. But to be precise, Toussaint played by young actor Divine Love Konadu-Sun is not there in the comics. Even though T’Challa does have a son in the comics but that’s Azari with the mutant Storm which also is a part of a different storyline.

So it is evident that once again the MCU has taken a different approach by introducing a character of its own. But the minds still don’t stop questioning as many are still confused about Shuri’s reign as Black Panther and how will Prince T’Challa come into the narrative.

Shuri’s reign as Black Panther is short term

After Toussaint was introduced, many ask that as Shuri is now the Black Panther, then how the mantle will be received by the prince. So the simple conclusion is that it’s a short-term taking over of the mantle by Shuri.

Shuri ingested the herb and took over the title of Wakanda’s protector mainly to avenge Queen Ramonda’s death as well as to protect Wakanda from the immediate threat. If she didn’t take that step, the Talocans would have been superior to the forces of Wakanda.

On the other hand, Prince T’Challa is also presently 6-7 years old so there’s a lot of time before we can see him in full action in the MCU. It is highly unlikely for the character to be a very major part of the colossal Avengers projects like Secret Wars. Additionally, after some time, the character can also be introduced in a project centering around the young Avengers.

But it is sure from the ending of the movie that the character would definitely return with the third installment of Black Panther. But till then we can do nothing but wait.
