Black Panther 2 Will Reportedly Have 4 Villains

Black Panther 2 Will Reportedly Have 4 Villains!

All the talk these days is the fate of the Black Panther sequel since Chadwick Boseman has passed away recently. Not to mention, the Marvel Cinematic Universe’s Black Panther 2 will always be tinged with sadness following the death of Boseman.

The best thing the studio could do is ensure that the sequel manages to both live up to the precedent set by the groundbreaking original and honor the legacy of the actor who took center stage… still doesn’t know at this point if Ryan Coogler’s follow-up will be delayed from the originally announced May 2022 release date. The original shooting scheduled was set to kick off in March 2021.

At this point, it appears there will be delays since the script will have to be reworked. It has been revealed that Marvel is thinking of Shuri taking over for T’Challa, but nothing is confirmed.

As far as plot details go, Namor has frequently been finding himself linked to the role of Black Panther 2‘s big bad, and casting calls seem to have hinted as much.

We suggested that Aldis Hodges take over for Chadwick Boseman as the Black Panther in part 2.

Despite the situation with T’Challa, Black Panther 2 is said to have 4 villains – we’ve now heard from our sources – the same ones that told us Taskmaster would be the villain in Black Widow and that a She-Hulk show was in the works for Disney Plus – that there could be up to four antagonists in the blockbuster sequel.

What we are hearing [via WGTC] is that the plan for right now is to have Namor as the movie’s major villain, but Doctor Doom is also said to have a small role to establish him as a significant threat in the future.

According to We Got This Covered, Henry Golding is being eyed for the role of Namor. We previously reported that two villains were revealed as T’Challa’s nemesis.

In addition to the two main villains, the other villains would be Zemo and Hunter.

Not only that, but Zemo will also reportedly factor into the story, which makes narrative sense given his return in The Falcon and the Winter Soldier and Bucky’s connections to Wakanda, while Hunter the White Wolf will follow in the footsteps of M’Baku and Killmonger as a homegrown adversary.

Kraven the Hunter

Hunter, in particular, would be an interesting addition given that the character is white and was adopted into the Wakandan royal family after his parents were killed, before being named as the leader of the nation’s secret police and ultimately becoming a mercenary for hire with his eyes set on the throne.

If Coogler is behind the camera we know he will be making the sequel better than the first.
