Marvel’s Black Panther is set to have its next installment soon. With Black Panther 2 incoming in far future, fans of Marvel Cinematic Universe want to know all details about the King of Wakanda, T’Challa. Who will return for the sequel? When will it release? These are the questions whose answers audience wants to know. Also, some recent news came in regarding the new villain for Black Panther 2. Let’s take a look at all the details about the next Black Panther sequel.
Doctor Doom Up For Villain Spot
Lately, rumors got out that Ororo Munroe, also known as Storm from the Marvel Comics, will feature as the main antagonist for Black Panther 2. Namor, The Mariner’s name came for the position as well. That is because, when Black Widow was on a holographic conference with all the left-over Avengers after five years, Okoye mentions that sub-oceanic earthquakes have been occurring off the coast of Africa. This topic was not discussed further as it was not that much of a concern at that time. Although, the entire part connected to the Mariner.
However, as for the recent reports, and according to some inside sources, news came in that Victor Von Doom may serve as the chief antagonist in the Black Panther sequel. Also, he will invade some parts of Africa, including the tech-giant Wakanda, to expand out his empire. Not just this, Marvel was looking at Viggo Mortensen, Hugh Jackman, or Michael Fassbender for the role of Doctor Doom.
Also, the entry of Victor Van Doom in the Marvel Cinematic Universe will open doors for the Fantastic 4. Doctor Doom had a direct connection with Mr. Fantastic/ Reed Richards. Therefore, they all can make an entry in the far future of the MCU. Also, as Iron Man, Captain America, and Black Widow have gone from the present time, Marvel is in need of some new superheroes with them to save the universe with new-upcoming evils.
Black Panther 2 Will Set Next Main Villain Of MCU
Moreover, the same reports suggested that the upcoming Black Panther sequel will put on some solid ground for the next prime villain of MCU. As of now, fans of Marvel Cinematic Universe are stuck on the evil Thanos and his deeds. When Thanos will become the villain of the past, that’ll be the time to introduce the next new baddie in town. Meanwhile, the new villain will take a while to happen. That is because the second Black Panther movie is not arriving soon.
Black Panther 2: Release After 2022
The fans felt disheartened as the next installment did not receive space in Phase 4 of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, as of yet. That is why the movie was not slated for 2020 or 2021 release. Meanwhile, WandaVision, Black Widow, The Falcon, and the Winter Soldier, The Eternals, Shang-Chi, Doctor Strange, and more are scheduled to be out in the next two years.
However, the sequel will mark as an essential streak in Phase 5 of the setting. Therefore, Black Panther 2 will arrive by late 2022. For more updates on Black Panther 2, stay tuned.
