Will Trinbagonian Actor Winston Duke be the new Black Panther?

This seems to be the million-dollar question from Marvel fans around the world and we may just have some inside news to help put your mind to rest. Yes, we can all agree that the anticipation for the next installment of the Marvel Cinematic Universe Black Panther movie is high and continues to grow bittersweetly since the tragic death of Chadwick Boseman, who played the movie’s hero T’Challa aka the Black Panther himself.

Initially, with the internet rumors swirling around that Letitia Wright, who plays Shuri would have been taking up the role of the new Black Panther in the movie’s sequel which is carded for release in 2022. However, a trusted inside source has now revealed that Marvel has decided that M’Baku, the character played by Winston Duke is being considered for the role after reports of trouble on the set actress Letitia Wright began circulating after the actress shared a post on social media that was reportedly seen as anti-vaccination. Later it was alleged, that she began sharing those views on set, though the actress has since denied doing that.

Since then, according to, a source revealed that although Marvel wanted to see Shuri take on the Black Panther title they had concerns about Letitia Wright, so they are making backup plans. The exclusive alleged update hints that the ending for Black Panther 2 had been adjusted and Shuri would give the title up in the end and will be passing the title on to Winston Duke’s M’Baku. It’s going to be interesting to see how the movie leads up to that pivotal moment, and how they establish what M’Baku’s leadership will mean for Wakanda’s future after Black Panther 2.

Still uncertain of how exactly this will happen within the movie’s storyline, fans will just have to wait patiently to see how it all unfolds in the Marvel Cinematic Universe in the sequel’s whose official title is Black Panther: Wakanda Forever. Hopefully, the story will set Winston Duke and the rest of the cast up to meet the high hopes Marvel fans have for Wakanda’s future.
