Lupita Nyong’o Won’t Disclose the Identity of the New Black Panther

The central theme of “Black Panther” was a potent one about family, identity, and duty. It also had a fantastic soundtrack and a distinctive visual aesthetic. It was nearly difficult to envision a sequel after Chadwick Boseman‘s untimely death, but “Black Panther: Wakanda Forever” is shaping up to be a moving ode to the late actor’s memory.

Despite the fact that the movie’s narrative is being kept a secret by director Ryan Coogler, we can infer a few things from the teaser. It’s clear that Wakanda is still mourning T’Challa even if the main problem isn’t immediately apparent (Chadwick Boseman). Queen Ramonda (Angela Bassett), Shuri (Letitia Wright), and Nakia (Lupita Nyong’o) are left to assist Wakanda in moving ahead in the wake of T’Challa’s passing as the country prepares to face a new threat looming on the horizon.

Naturally, viewers will be interested in learning how the passing of Boseman will impact the movie, but it isn’t the only query on their minds. The next Black Panther will be played by another figure, whose identity is currently unknown, according to movie trailers. You’re out of luck if you’re looking for more information on the subject.

Lupita Nyong’o made it plain in a recent interview that she won’t be dropping any indications as to who the upcoming Black Panther would be. It’s safe to presume from her funny but brief response that the actress will be keeping the information a closely guarded secret until the movie’s November 11, 2022, world debut.

Lupita Nyong’o is Committed to Keeping the Identity of the Black Panther a Mystery.

Viewers may see the new hero’s super suit in the “Black Panther: Wakanda Forever” movie’s official trailer. The gold accents on Shuri’s outfit might be a clue that she plans to follow in her brother’s footsteps. The audience will remember that T’Challa in “Black Panther” chose against wearing gold beads on his costume because he thought they were too flashy.

It makes it likely that Shuri would have chosen to differentiate herself from her brother by including that minor touch on her armor. However, it’s important to note that Nakia hardly makes an appearance in either trailer, suggesting that seeing Nakia would be a huge spoiler. Lupita Nyong’o is keeping her identity as the upcoming Black Panther a secret.

Lupita Nyong’o met down with The Hollywood Reporter before the sequel’s release to talk about her career, but she stayed mum about the film’s protagonist. She told the outlet, “If I told you that, I might as well just… dive into the water and never be seen again.”

It seems like swimming might be inevitable based on how one movie trailer for the project portrays it. Namor (Tenoch Huerta), also known as the Sub-Mariner and the monarch of the underwater nation of Talocan, will be the antagonist of “Black Panther: Wakanda Forever.” Namor, like T’Challa, is supported by a horde of devoted allies prepared to fight for their country, making him a potent addition to Marvel’s pool of adversaries.
