    Is Shuri The Next Black Panther? Watch The Full Black Panther: Wakanda Forever Trailer And Take A Guess

    Fans have a pretty good guess of who will carry on the Black Panther title.

    The official trailer for Black Panther: Wakanda Forever dropped earlier today, and it caused a lot of discussions online.

    From the sweet dedication to our fallen hero, Chadwick Boseman — the original Black Panther/T'Challa...

    A mural of Chadwick next to two drummers the introduction of new characters like Namor, also known as Sub-Mariner, who's played by Mexican actor Tenoch Huerta, there's a lot to look forward to.

    But one of the biggest shocks came at the end of the trailer, when a character is seen rocking an entirely revamped Black Panther costume.

    And many people think the reins have been passed on to none other than T'Challa's little sister, Shuri, played by Letitia Wright. One big clue that led to that conclusion was the tribal dots on the mask. They're similar to the ones on Shuri's face.

    Although it hasn't been confirmed, many people online were easily able to connect the dots — pun intended. Here's what people are saying about her transition in the movie:

    Shuri taking the mantle is such a good storyline, like the internal struggle and knowing she didn’t want power now has it and she’s grieving for her brother who she loved? Yeah yeah Coogler ya got me

    It’s funny people still refuse to believe the new Black Panther being Shuri just because she “lacks fighting skills”. Her involvement in BP and Endgame say otherwise and the Dora Milaje could’ve easily taught her to fight better off screen since then.

    I guess we'll all have to wait and find out when Black Panther: Wakanda Forever hits theaters on Nov. 11.

    But until then, let us know in the comments about your thoughts on the trailer and Shuri's possible new role!
