Sounds like Chadwick Boseman’s Black Panther days are numbered in the MCU and it’s his on-screen sister Shuri who is threatening to take away the crown of Wakanda from T’Challa.
Highlights! Marvel Sees Black Panther 2 As A Female Superhero Film With Shuri Replacing Chadwick Boseman’s T’Challa
- Boseman’s time in MCU is up
- Marvel loves the idea of a female Black Panther in Shuri
- Chadwick Boseman’s dismay
- Marvel’s Revolution
In the phase 4 of MCU, there have been rumours circulating that Shuri from the Black Panther is gonna make her debut as the new superhero of Wakanda in Doctor Strange 2. Consequently, this is a little off-putting for those who loved Chadwick Boseman’s portrayal of the character and were looking forward to seeing him in Black Panther 2.
Who is Shuri?
Shuri is the princess of Wakanda and the youngest child and only daughter of T’Chaka. This mysterious character has more in the closet than you think. She was able to solve certain things that Tony Stark aka iron man and Bruce Banner (The Hulk) couldn’t. There is a very high possibility that she might be the smartest one in the whole MCU.
- Necromancy: The ability to communicate with the dead which helps to predict the future.
- Animorph: This helps her to transform herself into a giant bird or a flock of birds.
- Proficient Martial Artist: Has been trained in various martial arts by his bother T’Chala and Dora Milaje.
- Genius level IQ: Has the intelligence that is incomparable in the whole MCU. It has been shown that her intellect surpasses that of Tony Stark and Bruce Banner.
- Super speed, strength, and agility: Her speed surpasses any normal human by inconceivable standards and so does her strength and agility.
- Stone Skin: Can transform into a rock which acts as an ultimate defence.
Chadwick Boseman’s Dismay
Boseman is not happy with the MCU’s decision which makes sense as he nailed the character and Black Panther was one of the highest-grossing Marvel movies, making 1.3 billion worldwide as per www.vox.com.
We all can agree that Boseman did a pretty great job playing Black Panther and we expected more from him. This is a little too sudden for the fans. Though when Marvel signs an actor we see them for a minimum of 3 movies.
So, there is a high possibility that we might see Boseman as any other character or maybe even Black Panther in an alternate timeline or flashbacks.
Marvel has entered into phase 4 of the MCU, it is introducing more and more female characters into the magical universe. This does make Marvel Cinematic Universe more interesting to watch as we get to witness different storylines with different characters breaking the monotony that followed Marvel earlier.
Marvel’s progressive and innovative way to stay ahead of the curve is bound to be work.
Almost each and every character in the Marvel has won over the hearts of millions but dragging it too much does make it less interesting. The never-ending humungous universe of Marvel needs to take risks to present their loyal audiences with fresh and exciting content.
