It’s been only a few hours since the new teaser for the next MCU movie Black Panther: Wakanda Forever dropped and it took over the internet in no time. The upcoming Black Panther movie is the sequel to the 2018 hit Black Panther and will continue the story of Wakanda, this time we will also get introduced to some new characters like Namor and the other beings of Atlantis. But the most exciting detail lies in the question of who is going to be the next Black Panther now as the beloved actor Chadwick Boseman who played the role of T’Challa aka Black Panther is no more.
The Fans take some Wild Guesses:
As the teaser of the much-awaited Wakanda Forever gets unveiled at the San Diego Comic-Con, it garnered much praise from the audience for its style and cinematography. While we know that sadly Chadwick Boseman passed away in 2020, the Marvel Cinematic Universe refused to re-cast his role, and instead as we know Black Panther is a mantle, so it would be passed on to somebody else.
In the whole teaser, we are neither shown much of the story nor about who is going to take over the title. In only one shot we got a look at the back side of someone wearing the Black Panther suit but not anything by which we can understand their identity. But here’s the main thing that happened when the fans started to guess about who is going to be the next holder of the title and to be honest it gets more bizarre and hilarious with each passing one some of them even claiming it to be the “old Steve Rogers”:
it's clearly Old Steve Rogers.

Although it is unknown who plays the new protector of Wakanda still the only hope it would be given to someone who can do complete justice to the role and can take that at least near to the perfection which was achieved by Chadwick Boseman.
