Many fans will be shocked to know that Black Panther does have a son. Although the partners differ in the movies and the comics. Azari T’Challa is the son of king T’Challa and the mutant Storm in the comic books. Yes, you read that right. The duo has a superhuman son with the kingdom of Wakanda for his legacy. But the partner will be changed in the movie as the mutants (specifically) Storm has not been included in the MCU yet!

King T’Challa formed a romantic relationship with Nakia. Considering that Nakia was pregnant around the time of Black Panther and didn’t snap away in the blip, her’s and T’Challa’s son would be around 6 to 7 years old around the time the events of Black Panther: Wakanda Forever take place.

A certain theory also proclaims that T’Challa’s sister Shuri will be the one protecting Wakanda at all costs and later ruling as queen regency until Azari comes of age. However, most people think that the throne should rightfully belong to Azari since he will have his father’s morals along with his bravery.

Matt Ramos, a renowned pop-culture journalist tweeted about this theory along with some proof.

The tweet was soon followed up by another tweet wherein he explains the timeline as a means of evidence to support this theory.

The fans quickly offered their joy upon finding a potential view of the high and mighty king T’Challa’s son.

However great this idea might be, the film is also about honoring the death of beloved actor Chadwick Boseman. Therefore, it would make sense for the throne of Wakanda to pass over to the next generation.
