Black Panther 2 Will Feature The Prince of Wakanda, The Son of T’Challa?!

After the tragic loss of Chadwick Boseman, the future of Wakanda in the MCU seemed uncertain. However, we think Marvel found a way to continue without disrespecting Boseman’s memory. The upcoming Black Panther: Wakanda Forever will be featuring Letitia Wright’s Shuri as the fierce Black Panther. Opposing her will be the King of the lost island of Atlantis, Namor. Narcos-fame Tenoch Huerta will be taking on the role of Namor. However, aside from the main plot of the movie, we have reasons to believe that the movie will feature a new member of the Royal Family, the Wakandan prince, son of T’Challa!


According to a reputed media and news site, The Cosmic Circus, T’Challa’s son will be appearing, however, he will not be taking on his father’s mantle.

Actually, if we refer to the source material, T’Challa had a son with Ororo, aka Storm. However, for the sake of MCU, the mother of his child might very well be Nakia (Lupita Nyong’o). T’Challa’s son was named Azari in the comics and there is a high chance that the movie will retain the name. Also, the actor playing the role of Azari is still a mystery. Some movie fanatics suggest that the character will be portrayed in an infant phase and a new actor will be recast as Azari comes of age, much like Cassie’s role in Ant-Man and Avengers: Endgame.



As stated earlier, Marvel writers had to walk on tip-toes for this movie as the audience grew very fond of Boseman and didn’t want to dishonor his tragic death. It must have been a very delicate task for Feige as well as the creative team of Black Panther: Wakanda Forever. Feige and Ryan Coogler had promised that the role of T’Challa will not be recast. This was a pretty good gesture on Disney’s behalf.


Take a look at their tweet:

Adding a new character as Chadwick Boseman’s T’cHalla’s son might be the perfect way to honor his memory. Moreover, making the project into a Disney+ miniseries might allow the character to grow in his father’s footsteps. And this all could happen alongside the main plot of the movie, creating a balance that would have been impossible to create in a movie.
