Chadwick Boseman’s death caused great distress among his fans. He was well known for his role as Black Panther in several MCU films. Marvel had already announced the Black Panther sequel, and the actor himself was getting in shape for the role. His death shocked everyone.
Shuri is T’Challa’s sister in the MCU, and many expect her to take over the mantle of Black Panther in the franchise’s future now. Even a petition was started on the topic that the character of Black Panther must live on.
Marvel has not made the final decision yet as to who will be the next Black Panther. If Shuri is made the next Black Panther, she might be a prominent member of the Avengers.
Other characters who will be a part of the superhero team will be: Captain Marvel, Doctor Strange, Spider-Man, She-Hulk, War Machine, Sam Wilson’s Captain America, Shang-Chi, Yelena Belova’s Black Widow.
Black Panther 2 is expected to premiere sometime in 2022, which gives Marvel plenty of time to decide, especially given the current COVID-19 health crisis.
