Black Panther 2: 5 New Characters We Wish To See In The Sequel

The next installment of the 2018 Marvel spectacle Black Panther ie. Black Panther: Wakanda Forever, is set to hit the big screens this November, and the fans can not wait any longer. Marvel fans are known to search down the bottom of every barrel to look for a clue for what’s in store for them in the Ryan Coogler directorial. Black Panther: Wakanda Forever is expected to introduce several new and exciting characters, including some which are all but confirmed as well as some which are just the figments of fan imaginations. Here is a list of 5 new characters we wish to see in the sequel:

1. Namor a.k.a The Sub-Mariner

Marvel’s first mutant, with regard to the order in which the character appeared in print.

With the rumors of the movie introducing the fantastical underwater city of Atlantic going strong with each set report, the appearance of Namor, the sub-mariner, is all but confirmed in the movie. According to a few leaks, Namor could also serve as the chief antagonist, facing the to-be king in the absence of King T’challa. Names ranging from Tenoch Huerta to Henry Golding have been speculated to play the popular anti-hero, but whoever plays the king of the Underwater world will surely attract a lot of fans.

2. Storm: One of the first black comic book characters

Worshiped as a goddess in a tribe in Africa, before being recruited for the X-Men.

The weather-controlling Mutant, popularly played by Oscar-winning actress Halle Berry in the Fox-Marvel X-Men franchise, has had a rich history with the king of Wakanda in the Marvel comics across history. But with the unfortunate passing of Chadwick Boseman, it would be interesting to see how the Feige-led team incorporates the character in the film if they do. But with Mutants set to debut in the MCU after Disney’s acquisition of Fox, a cameo could not be ruled out.

3. Fantastic 4: The Superhero Dream Team

The first superhero team created by Jack Kirby and Stan Lee.

With Marvel’s original superhero team-up set to enter the MCU in their own confirmed film, helmed by MCU Spiderman director John Watts, Black Panther: Wakanda Forever would be the perfect opportunity for Marvel to introduce Reed Richards, Sue Storm, Johnny Storm, and Ben Grimm. 

4. The Latverian Monarch, best known as Dr. Doom 

One of the characters we wish to see in Black Panther 2.
The genius who became a ruler through a deal with the devil.

Dr. Doom and Fantastic Four have gone hand in hand since his debut as a leading Fantastic Four villain in the “The Fantastic Four #5” comic of 1962. Victor Van Doom has been as iconic of a villain for the Fantastic Four as the Joker is for Batman and the Green Goblin is for Spidey. So it would make complete sense to expect Dr. Doom to follow the Fantastic Four into Black Panther: Wakanda Forever.

5. Riri Williams a.k.a Ironheart

Among the incredible characters we wish to see in Black Panther sequel.
Genius Riri Williams, who got inspired by Tony Stark and built her own suit of incredible armor.

The MIT graduate is confirmed to make her much-awaited MCU debut as the successor to Tony Stark in the Black Panther sequel. With her solo series, Ironheart, set to hit Disney plus soon, it would be interesting to see if we see an already super-Riri or if she has yet to become a hero. Dominique Thorne was confirmed to play the role of Riri back in 2020 and we all are surely excited to see her.
