Creed director Ryan Coogler returns to direct the MCU sequel, following the passing of Chadwick Boseman in August, 2020. In the absence of King T’Challa, his trusted allies Okoye and sister Shuri are tasked with protecting the people of Wakanda against a threat unlike any they’ve faced before.

Namor, the movie’s villain, will be familiar to hardcore fans as the character is noted for being the first mutant in Marvel comics history.

While Namor wasn’t officially declared mutant until Fantastic Four Annual #1, Namor later becomes an anti-hero that has worked with the Avengers and X-Men directly.

Black Panther: Wakanda Forever will also see the debut of Riri Williams aka Ironheart, before the character appears in their own Disney+ show. Played by Dominique Thorne, Riri Williams is a genius inventor that creates a suit that rivals the power of Tony Stark.

Black Panther: Wakanda Forever releases in theaters on November 11, 2022.
