LEGO Set Seemingly Confirms the New Black Panther
It has been a source of speculation since the announcement of the untimely and tragic death of Chadwick Boseman, and with the recently released Black Panther: Wakanda Forever trailer fueling those rumors, a new LEGO Set seemingly confirms the new Black Panther.
He was undeniably one of the most popular and wildly beloved characters in the entirety of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, and the unfortunate passion goes Chadwick Boseman has led to Marvel Studios’ unwillingness to cast a new T’Challa.
It is through that honoring of the character that the MCU is now forced to address the death of that hero in the universe, and with that, come an undeniable amount of questions surrounding how the fictional city of Wakanda can move forward, and who could take the place of the hero, and his importance.
With the film being kept tightly under warps, and very little known about how Wakanda can move forward, the first official trailer for the film had been released at the conclusion of Marvel’s most recent San Diego Comic-Con, with the moving tribute and legacy story perfectly establishing a mourning nation.
The trailer concluded with a moment that ensured fans that the story will move forward with a brand new inheritor of the mantle, with its biggest question being just who that inheritor will be; and with that question on the forefront of everyone’s mind, we may have some insight by way of some new merchandise.
It appears that a recently released LEGO set for the movie has seemingly confirmed the new Black Panther, and it is potentially a character that fans have assumed for the longest time would inherit the mantle.
That character is none other than Shuri, who is shown in Minifigure form with a design that looks immense similar to the design shown in that final shot of the film, pointing to her picking up the mantle that was discarded by her passing brother.

We think it’s actually a very good idea for Marvel to give Shuri these powers, and to allow her to embrace this role that was cast away by the tragic passing of the person she was undoubtedly closest too,
