SPOILERS FOR BLACK PANTHER: WAKANDA FOREVER AND BLACK ADAM
Many will remember all the fuss about the ending of DC’s Black Adam. Technically it’s a post-credits scene, which was rumored to have featured a cameo from DC’s flagship superhero, Superman, with Henry Cavill reprising the role. Black Panther: Wakanda Forever might just be Marvel’s reply to all the hype surrounding Cavill’s return as Superman.
Wakanda Forever is shaping up to be a worthy successor to 2018’s Black Panther, with all the visual effects and hype surrounding a possible second Black Panther in place. But as some fresh reports might suggest, fans might be getting much more than they ever expected, as an iconic Marvel villain is speculated to feature in the movie’s post-credits scene.

Black Panther: Wakanda Forever Might Feature Iconic Marvel Villain
The age of post-credits scenes is very well upon us and has been so ever since Nick Fury had the Avengers talk with Tony Stark at the end of Iron Man way back in 2008. Although the first use of a post-credits scene in a Marvel movie goes to 2003’s Daredevil.
Fans have been treated to multiple uses of the post-credits scene in almost every Marvel movie ever since, and it has been successful because it generates a lot of hype for what’s about to come in future projects.

Black Panther: Wakanda Forever is Marvel’s last theatrical release for this year, and it will be following the trend, as the custom is. It will do the honors, but it’s reported that it will do so by introducing a character known by many but one who has never made their debut in the MCU.
The Hollywood Reporter’s Borys Kit was at the premiere of Black Panther: Wakanda Forever just a day ago. He reports that the movie received quite the applause and a wide range of other emotions during the screening from fans.
Black Panther: #WakandaForever : last night's premiere screening saw the audience gasp, cheer, clap, holler, sit in deafening silence, and tear up.

Following up on his tweet, Kit would later post this-
#WakandaForever also features one of, if not the, best post-credit scenes in Marvel Studios history. Impactful. I hope it doesn't get spoiled. https://t.co/KFXJcYRCj2

The second tweet is in line with various reports and rumors regarding the debut of the iconic Marvel villain Doctor Doom in the MCU, which has been said to happen in the post-credits scene of Wakanda Forever.
Could this very well be the time when fans get to finally see Doctor Doom in the MCU? It would only make sense since fellow X-Men character Wolverine is also making his debut in the franchise with a role in the upcoming Deadpool 3 movie as well.

Reactions To Black Panther: Wakanda Forever Are Very Positive
Black Panther: Wakanda Forever is finally out, at least for those who were at the premiere just two days ago, and fans couldn’t be any more excited to watch it in theaters. The four-year wait was quite a long time as the success of the first movie made most fans relentless.

The movie will sadly not feature the original actor for T’Challa, Chadwick Boseman, who passed away unexpectedly in 2020 from colon cancer.
But it does feature the long-awaited comeback of Rihanna with a solo single since 2016, and even better, it’s a tribute to Boseman.
All this combined with the hype of the first movie has brought in the first reactions for Wakanda Forever, and they’re all thrilled.
#WakandaForever is amazing! Coogler delivered an epic and emotional sequel that is an incredible tribute to Chadwick Boseman’s legacy. Letitia Wright, Angela Bassett and Tenoch Huerta give their all in the roles.
This is easily the best movie from phase 4. pic.twitter.com/f8t6NOq8xt

Rave reviews! –
#WakandaForever is outstanding. It handles loss, grief and revenge with a maturity and seriousness rarely seen in the MCU. Black Panther continues to be their crown jewel. Letitia Wright, Angela Bassett and Tenoch Huerta all bring some of the best acting I've seen all year. pic.twitter.com/ECqGxfEyFi

#BlackPanther #WakandaForever is epic, especially in scope.
Namor is one of the better villains the MCU has had to offer. Tenoch Huerta just kills it!
Emotions are heavy. Ryan Coogler ups his game on the action. It’s a lot to take in, balance so much, and is powerfully good. pic.twitter.com/NYxk1UvTYz

The way these initial reactions are flowing in with positivity, it looks like Wakanda Forever might just be able to match the success of Black Panther.
Black Panther: Wakanda Forever will officially release in theaters on November 11, 2022, in the United States.
