After years of development, Black Panther: Wakanda Forever is set to hit theatres in just a few months. The impending Marvel Cinematic Universe sequel is already attracting a lot of attention, especially in light of the tragic demise of T’Challa actor Chadwick Boseman in 2020, with fans eager to see how the sequel will continue Wakanda’s history.
While the first trailer for the film isn’t expected any time soon, new official promotional pictures for Black Panther: Wakanda Forever gives us our first glimpse at Okoye and Shuri. Danai Gurira and Letitia Wright will reprise their roles in the MCU sequel. The narrative for Black Panther: Wakanda Forever, directed by Ryan Coogler, is yet unknown, although it’s likely to pay homage to Chadwick Boseman and T’Challa following the actor’s unexpected death in 2020.

As the release date of Black Panther: Wakanda Forever approaches, promotional materials are beginning to arrive. This includes some promotional photographs from Sprite (via Black Panther 2 News), which show Okoye and Shuri for the first time. The Wakandan princess is dressed in a purple long-sleeved top with a high collar, while the Dora Milaje leader is dressed in her intricate battle outfit.

Shuri is the only one of the two who has a fresh look. She’s still stylish, but the new haircut stands out the most, as she ditches her long locks for a shorter, curlier style. The princess also appears to be supporting a new tattoo, although it is unclear what it signifies. Okoye, on the other hand, appears to be the same, with no visible alterations in this image. Unfortunately, these images don’t provide much additional information or context about what will happen in the next sequel. Fans should not have to wait long to find out what’s in store for them.
Black Panther: Wakanda Forever is currently set to be released exclusively in theaters on November 11th.
