Watch: Will Shuri Save Wakanda in the Black Panther Sequel?

I don’t know about you, but I’m ready for another trip to Wakanda. While a sequel to Black Panther hasn’t been confirmed yet, Marvel Studios President Keith Feige told Variety that he’s hopeful there will be a second Black Panther movie, and he “absolutely” wants director Ryan Coogler to helm the sequel.

In my humble opinion, I believe that the sequel will focus on whatever blowback that comes from The Avengers: Infinity War, ever since there is a battle in Wakanda (side note: I think the Soul Gem is in Wakanda and those rings that T’Chaka and N’Jobu once owned, will lead to that gem’s location).

I also believe that it will focus on the backlash that T’Challa and Wakanda will face, due to their resources. I think T’Challa believes that he can control the quantity of wonders that will be exported. He thinks that he could spoon-feed other countries with whatever vibranium-laced treats that he wants to give out. There will be governments that will disagreed. Bonus points, if there’s a character (in the potential sequel) that is a popular, conservative media mouth-piece that instigates and add more fuel to that fire. I think this could be a clever way of introducing a traditional Black Panther villain from his comic book franchise. Perhaps, “Cottonmouth” or “Killjoy”.

I don’t think Killmonger will be back.
