The Upcoming Black Panther 2 Will Include Namor?
Production on the highly-anticipated Black Panther sequel has already started.

But as part of Marvel’s expansion of their sub-franchise under the umbrella of the MCU, Black Panther: Wakanda Forever is expected and scheduled to get released on the 11th of November this year. One of these new characters is expected to be Namor although this hasn’t been confirmed yet by officials from Marvel Studios.

Black Panther 2: The Flashbacks
It is currently uncertain what scenes are currently being filmed in Puerto Rico by Black Panther: Wakanda Forever. But rumors suggest that they’re related to the reported Wakandan vs. Atlantis conflict that will supposedly debut in the sequel. It’s worth noting that Avengers: Endgame hinted that there has been a struggle between their people for years and it sounded like it has been going on for quite some time. Fans of the franchise also believe that this tension culminates, resulting in a full-blown battle. It’s also important to note that there have been several set images supporting these claims, further convincing fans to take this rumor seriously.
To conclude, Marvel Studios is set to follow up Black Panther with a sequel that will introduce Riri Williams aka. Ironheart. The Disney+ series officially premieres this fall. But Marvel fans have already gotten a sneak peek of what’s to come when the company shared some set photos, which featured several key players like Okoye and Shuri, as well as parts of Riri’s costume.
With that being said, Black Panther: Wakanda Forever will hit the theaters on the 11th of November, 2022.
