Black Panther 3 has yet to be officially confirmed by Marvel, but Black Panther: Wakanda Forever certainly hints that we’ll be returning to Wakanda. At the end of the excellent MCU sequel, we get a title card that says “Black Panther will return,” just like at the end of Thor: Love and Thunder. It could mean other MCU projects, but we’re hoping it means the third film. Wakanda Forever saw our heroes cope with the death of T’Challa following the tragic death of Chadwick Boseman in August 2020 as a great new threat arrived in the MCU in the form of Namor and the Talokan Civilization. The sequel leaves much to be discovered in a potential third film. So while we await confirmation from Marvel, here’s everything you need to know about Black Panther 3.

As mentioned above, Black Panther 3 is yet to be confirmed by Marvel Studios, so we don’t have an official release date yet. Marvel has a packed list for years to come leading up to Avengers: The Kang Dynasty on May 2nd. , 2025, so it’s difficult to see the third film before that unless there are some schedule changes. There are some dates for the untitled Marvel movies in 2025 and 2026, although they could be used for Black Panther 3: • July 25, 2025, November 7, 2025, February 13, 2026, July 24, 2026, and November 6, 2026. Avengers: Secret Wars is coming out on May 1, 2026, to wrap up The Multiverse Saga so it might depend on whether a third movie fits into that saga, or ends up as part of Phase 7 in a brand-new saga.

As it hasn’t been officially confirmed yet, there is no announced return for Black Panther 3 just yet, but we can make a few guesses based on the events of Wakanda Forever. You haven’t seen the film yet. Notably absent from the third film is Angela Bassett’s Ramonda, who sacrifices herself to save Riri Williams’ life when Namor devastatingly attacks Wakanda. We knew in advance that T’Challa would be killed and not recast for the MCU, so Ramonda is the surprise casualty of the sequel. Everyone else survives, so expect the return of Letitia Wright’s Shuri (now the new Black Panther), Lupita Nyong’o’s Nakia, Gurira’s Danai  Okoye, Winston Dukes M’Baku, Florence Kasumba’s Ayo, and Michaela Coel’s Aneka. 

The emotional credits scene reveals that Nakia and T’Challa had a pre-Snap son named Toussaint, played by newcomer Divine Love Konadu-Sun, who tells Shuri his name is Prince T’Challa. Expect to see more of Prince T’Challa in the third film, but we might get a time warp and a recast of the character. Dominique Thorne’s Riri Williams now has her own Ironheart show to host, so it’s unclear if she’ll be returning to Wakanda. for the threesome. The same goes for Martin Freeman’s Everett Ross, who will appear in Secret Invasion. Tenoch Huertas Namor has a big MCU future along with Mabel Cadenas Namora, but we don’t yet know if they will appear in a third Black Panther movie or something else entirely. Michael B. Jordan made a surprise return as a Killmonger when Shuri visited the Ancient Plains after taking the Heart-Shaped Herb. He’s still definitely dead, so it seems unlikely that he’ll show up in the future, but there’s always the multiverse… It’s also a possible possibility for Angela Bassett to reprise her role as Ramonda when we return to Wakanda, be it in the Ancestors plane or another version of the multiverse. Nothing can be ruled out with the UCM.

Black Panther 3 Plot

With the MCU’s interconnected stories, it’s hard to tell whether Wakanda Forever is in the works for a third film or other MCU projects, but here we are at the end of the sequel. Now, in Black Panther, Shuri was introduced to The Son of T’Challa when he visits Nakia in Haiti to say goodbye to T’Challa by burning his funeral regalia. Nakia had offered Shuri to stay in Haiti, but she knows Wakanda needs her. Meanwhile, Shuri misses the coronation ceremony in Wakanda and appears when M’Baku challenges for the throne. However, it is not clear if he is serious or just joking.

Wakanda and Talokan are at peace at the end of Wakanda Forever, thanks to Shuri choosing to spare Namor’s life. However, he believes that the surface world will come about Wakanda and then turn to Talokan for protection. It certainly seems like the MCU is preparing for a battle between Wakanda and the US, with the US government blaming Wakanda for the attack on their ship searching for vibration in the ocean at the beginning of the film. Valentina (Julia Louis-Dreyfus) appears to be orchestrating the conflict to gain access to Vibranium and arrests Ross when she finds out he was secretly working with the Wakandans. 

Luckily for Ross, Okoye escapes from prison transport at the end of the film. This conflict may come to a head in a different MCU project than  Black Panther 3. If you’re hoping the stars know what’s going to happen in the third film, they’re just as in the dark as the rest of us. . “There’s no telling where this franchise is going because there are a million twists, there there are a million twists. Each character develops and changes radically differently along the way,” Duke told Digital Spy. “So where Nakia is at the end of the movie, you have no idea what’s going to happen. You have no idea what will happen to M’Baku. You don’t know what’s going to happen to Shuri or anyone”.You have no idea.

Black Panther Wakanda Forever Recap

T’Challa is dead, killed off-screen by a virus. Wakanda mourns. Other countries are desperate to steal Wakanda’s reserves of vibranium, and a new threat quickly emerges in the form of Namor. Along with the Talokanil warriors,  armed with siren-like hypnotic singing powers, Namor appears unannounced in Wakanda and needs the help of Shuri and the Queen to save his world from Talokan. It turns out that a brilliant scientist has created a device to detect Vibranium, and Namor wants it. Wakanda’s help in killing them and protecting their worlds. However, this scientist turns out to be Riri Williams, also known as Ironheart. At a whopping 2 hours and 40 minutes, Wakanda Forever takes forever to get moving. 

Caught between a  bombastic Joker Marvel film and a dark, thoughtful drama about the impact of T’Challa’s death on the nation of Wakanda, the resulting tug of war gives this film a very mixed feeling. While the threat to Wakanda and the potential consequences of doomsday is felt due to the onslaught of Namor’s forces, the introduction of Riri Williams’ Ironheart makes it that much more complicated. While not quite as unbearable as in the comics, its inclusion feels odd and seems to serve only the purpose of drawing attention to its next series in 2023. He could easily tweak the story and remove it from the narrative entirely, such is the weight of his narrative involvement here. And that’s before he mentions a reused scene from Iron Man that he finds himself in, like the one above Atmosphere zooms only to run out of oxygen and fall back down. Go back down to earth. Almost beat for beat is the same! The story is also riddled with little gimmicks, plot holes, and some mind-blowing segments. Ankle.

The camera gets close enough to show this. Five minutes later, Shuri exclaims, “Did you see the wings on her ankles?” Those moments of unnecessary snippets of dialogue are common and get boring after a while. More effective, however, is Shuri, who begins as an arrogant, argumentative, and angry young woman who struggles to process grief until she becomes a much more level-headed and balanced woman. -Rounded person in the credits. However, he is far from dominant enough to expand his position of power. He later completely exaggerates his line to Namor, booming, “I am the Black Panther, and I’m here to get my revenge.” !” In a way that sounds like something out of the scarier parts of drama school. Angela Bassett is by far the best character in this film, absolutely dominating the screen in almost every scene she appears in. It almost feels like he should have been the next Black Panther! Wakanda Forever tries to do many things but never finds the right rhythm. Half of this film is enmeshed in a constant charade of sleepy monologues and lengthy scenes that could easily have been cut out of this entirely. Ironically, the bigger and more expansive this film gets, the less impact it has.

It’s incredibly frustrating because there’s a good movie on here somewhere. If the film had focused on Shuri dealing with grief and finding herself talking to Bucky (who, by the way, is still a Wakanda prisoner but is only referred to once as “that white man”), the film would have been able to allow that The subject of grief needs to be properly explored in a format that doesn’t require underwhelming comedy or a big bombastic action piece at the end. Aesthetically, Wakanda Forever looks pretty good, with Namor’s home world and parts of Wakanda and their traditional burial rites stunning to look at. It’s a shame that simple things like CGI beats (including Ironheart’s miserable outfit at the end) undermine this beauty. Not only that, but the choreography is a mixed bag at best. A fight on a bridge in the middle of this film unfolds disastrously, with the camera locked on a spear that narrowly misses a Talokan warrior… and then, in the next frame, the same spear is caught on the other side and shown inserted into the warrior’s belly. These sorts of clumsy mistakes are something you wouldn’t expect to see so prominently in a $250 million budget project. Ultimately, Phase 4 ends the way it started, with a lot of untapped potentials. There are parts of this project that shines, but they’re overwhelmingly overshadowed by muted grays that shroud this film in a veil of mediocrity.

Black Panther 3 Trailer

Unfortunately, you’ll have to wait a while as  Black Panther 3 hasn’t started filming yet unless Marvel shot it in secret, which is highly unlikely. Marvel typically doesn’t release the first trailer for their films until three months before release, so there’s going to be a long wait.
