Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) is always full of surprises and Black Panther: Wakanda forever it contained one that would undoubtedly be one of the biggest shocks for longtime viewers.
With the d*ath of Chadwick Boseman in August 2020 after battling c*ncer, the Marvel film reflects real life, portraying Wakanda mourning the loss of Boseman’s hero, King T’Challa, also known as Black Panther.
Struggling with grief, T’Challa’s sister Shuri (Letitia Wright) and Ramonda’s mother (Angela Bassett) try to focus on protecting Wakanda from the outside world, but then a new enemy emerges, Namor (Tenoch Huerta).

What do the scenes mean after writing “Black Panther: Wakanda Forever” for the MCU
In Wakanda forever, Shuri leads the Wakanda nation in the fight against Namor and his Talocan people after blood was shed on both sides and led to all-out war.
Now a new Black Panther, Shuri goes head to head with the Mutant Namor, and their fight ends with Shuri as the winner. Full of rage over regret, Shuri prepares to deliver the killing blow to Namor, but then decides to show mercy and offers an agreement between Wakanda and Talokan.
Namor agrees and the nations return to their relative harmony, and Shuri’s reign over Wakanda begins for real. But first, she decides to visit Nakia (Lupita Nyong’o) in Haiti to perform a ceremony to burn her b*rial robes, symbolizing the end of her mourning over T’Challa’s d*ath.
The film’s post-credit scene takes place seconds after the main event ends, and Nakia brings the boy to meet Shuri. The boy is the son of T’Challa.
Nakia reveals that she and T’Challa agreed that she should raise their son away from Wakanda and the pressure of being next in line to the throne, and the young boy reveals that his name is also T’Challa.
By introducing the younger T’Challa, the MCU ensures that the Black Panther cloak can still be passed on to the family of the deceased king, and the character will likely play an important role in the Marvel movies in the future.
T’Challa’s son, whose full name is Azari T’Challa in the Marvel comics, was likely introduced to help empower Young Avengers, a team that includes superhero kids and their wonders yet to appear in the MCU.
Several Young Avengers members have appeared in the MCU so far, from Ms. Marvel and America Chavez after the children of Kate Bishop and Wanda Maximoff Wiccan and Speed. Everyone, including T’Challa’s son, is likely to become key MCU players under Young Avengers.
Wakanda forever The second post-credits scene is actually not so much a scene as a promise, as it’s a title page that reads, “Black Panther Will Return.” Considering Shuri took over her brother’s title, it seemed obvious that she would be back, but fans would no doubt appreciate this confirmation.
Black Panther: Wakanda Forever is now in theaters.
