“Black Panther 3”: The main actress gives hope for the continuation of the Marvel hit. With “Wakanda Forever” the long-awaited “Black Panther” sequel came to German cinemas. Will the Marvel series get a third part?
Fans had to wait more than four years for the second “Black Panther” film, but now it’s finally showing in German cinemas and thus taking on the cinematic legacy of the late title hero Chadwick Bosewick. Not an easy task, but the popularity is still great – after two months in international cinemas, the film has already grossed 832 million US dollars (as of January 2023). A third solo film is more than likely. Now Shuri actress Letitia Wright also found clear words for “Black Panther 3”.

After the success of the first part, “Wakanda Forever” represents a turning point in many respects, and a third film also depends on its failure or success. How will audiences react to the Black Panther sequel? Does a solo sequel make sense, or is Black Panther just not the same without Chadwick Boseman? These and similar questions were asked before the start, but it is now clear: both critics and the public are still enthusiastic and Marvel boss Kevin Feige also firmly believes in the continuation of the series. During the Golden Globes, Shuri actress Letitia Wright revealed her great confidence that a third film is already in the works:

Official confirmation from Disney is still pending, but US media are already taking Wright’s statement as a firm promise.
Should Disney soon follow suit and start production for the third “Black Panther” film, we could ideally expect the finished work to be as early as 2024. As Wright suggests, however, it could also take some time before official talks take place and the creative preparatory work is completed. Nevertheless, we assume that fans will not have to wait as long for the third part as between parts 1 and 2. Perhaps the “Wakanda” series produced especially for Disney+ can then comfort the break.
In terms of content, there are still few clues as to what adventure Shuri (Letitia Wright) could have next. Wakanda may face a new threat and must defend her homeland – alongside a new king. At the moment, one can only speculate as to who might be the attacker. But the valuable Vibranium Wakanda continues to attract greedy people and nations…
