Someone on Twitter pointed out the similarities to a Lego Ninjago poster and I can't unsee it now https://www.reddit.com/r/ninjagosetleaks/comments/lwxn4y/ninjago_season_15_poster/


Rogue-3

Lol it's the same

The same but different but still the same

Damn, Ninjago is on its 15th Season now!? I stopped watching that show after season 5. It didn't get bad, I just lost interest.


throwaway717190102

Ninjago just ended like last week I think


DoubleDeantandre

Me watching the trailer: maybe they are misleading us by focusing on Shuri so much Me seeing the poster: nope


Hanzitheninja

I wanted to believe that as well. Maybe it’s one of those Marvel-misleads they put in or remove from their trai…oh no, there she is in the poster…


dbee8q

I am still hoping. I do not want it to be her.


PlanetLandon

A fun theory that’s been floating around is that we will see more than one person wearing Black Panther armour throughout the movie. So while we may get Shuri in it for a while out of necessity, the actual title and role of Black Panther may ultimately land with someone else by the end of the movie. Really it should be Nakia.


imightbethewalrus3

I think it'd be great if they went with an idea that there are multiple Black Panthers and work with metaphors/allegories about the importance of community, family, support systems, etc.


Training_Bid1425

The reason I would really like to see it be Nakia is the actress who plays her could absolutely carry a franchise.


SBI992

It's really sad because before all the drama I did really want it to be her. Now I'm just meh.


Zellough

What drama?


EnciclopedistadeTlon

"The video, which was from the YouTube channel “On The Table,” questions the legitimacy of the COVID-19 vaccine. It also appears skeptical of climate change, accuses China of spreading COVID-19 and includes transphobic comments. Wright tweeted the link to it on Thursday night with the prayer hands emoji, and it was deleted shortly thereafter. YouTube has also removed the video in question for violating its terms of service." "Now, Wright’s entire Twitter account seems to have been deleted, with the handle @LetitiaWright yielding a “This account doesn’t exist” flag when one searches for it. Her Instagram account also appears to have been deleted." "Earlier, Wright had also tweeted: “If you don’t conform to popular opinions. but ask questions and think for yourself….you get cancelled.”"

That’s… very ironic considering her character

ugotamesij

*Booyaka-T'challa*


upyourass2theleft

Or they bring back andy Serkis doing mocap as a t’challa That dude can play anything. Probably not a black dude but let’s see him try. James Cameron should’ve cast this guy in his avatar films.


VisualPersona95

Still think Nakia would have been a better choice.


solitarybikegallery

I'm 100% team Okoye. She would have been such a great choice for Black Panther. Simply because she wouldn't *want* to do it. That's a compelling story. Think of a reason why she has to take up the mantle, then watch her struggle with it. I'd watch that.


qlanga

> “You would kill me, my love?” > “For my country? Without *hesitation*.” She’s a queen already, just crown it!


Victorious10

What a great line! She killed it


moak0

Plus she's been such a central part of the stories and she's established as being a great warrior. She's front and center, and it'd be nice to see her character going somewhere.


Ubergoober166

Almost anyone would be a better choice. And I'm not even saying that because of Shuris' actress. Her character hasn't been shown at all to be capable of taking up the mantle.


0piumSant

Still think Nakia or M’Baku would’ve been a better choice, mostly pictured Shuri being the “tech support” of Wakanda and not really a one on one fighter like T’Challa. Still really excited for the movie tho!


elmodonnell

Nakia is so much more natural of a fit, but if I had to guess I'd say maybe Lupita didn't want to get locked into years more Marvel contracts as one of their main heroes. As a supporting character she can show up for the Black Panther movies, collect a fat paycheck, and not worry about being dragged in for every team-up. I think losing Daniel Kaluuya really hurts this ensemble though, the conflict between him and the royal family was established really well, and could've provided some internal tension as well as external.


Danishroyalty

I feel like he'll just be in prison for the movie and maybe he can come back for a 3rd. Maybe get a redemption arc.


seemtobedead

That would be really cool. I'd love to see that. His character was really intriguing in the first. The rhinos were meh, but that didn't detract from him.


aylakadam03

I was wondering why Kaluuya wasn't in the trailer so he left? If that is the case it is a big loss. I wonder what happened. Although they wasted his poteintial in first film so perhaps he was upset about that.


elmodonnell

Nah it was scheduling conflicts with NOPE from what I remember, nothing too dramatic


TheBlackSwarm

Losing Michael B Jordan is a shame too if they didn’t kill him off in the first film they could’ve just imprisoned him in a wakanda prison cell or something and he could’ve turned into an anti-hero like Loki eventually did.


DullBlade0

Locked away in a cell...shit's hitting the ceiling and then: "Will you fight for Wakanda?" I can see that.

sabin357

Honestly, killing villains is, at best, short-sighted in something like the MCU.


dacookeymonsta

In the span of a movie they killed two of Black Panther's most iconic villains and made a third a good guy. I get the feeling they didn't expect to make too many Black Panther movies for some reason.

[удалено]


Ry90Ry

Also from an acting stand point…,shuri is not a leading star power kinda actress


madhad1121

The only thing I know about Latricia Wright outside of characters she’s played is that she caused trouble with production because she was anti vax. Which is not a good thing to be known for in general, but especially if you’re not already an A lister or star quarterback.


Ry90Ry

Yeah she was v anti vacc Regardless of that I don’t think she has the star power it factor to lead this franchise Angela, Lupita, Danai eat the screen up in a way she doesn’t


Arkeband

Plus she’s a terrible role model compared to Boseman. She was doing “do your own research” horseshit during Covid and linking conspiracy videos and anti-trans stuff. Like the most generous thing you could say about her is she’s too stupid to understand what she was doing.


AdminsAreLazyID10TS

Which is pretty goddamn obnoxious for a scientist turned hero.


not-so-radical

M'Baku worships a different god to Bast so it'd be weird if he was the new Black Panther


enragedbreathmint

The Grey Gorilla? Wait it was a gorilla god right?


Scyhaz

M'Baku is the Great Gorilla. They worship Hanuman, a gorilla god.


BigBoutros

Hanuman is a Hindu god it’s so weird that they borrowed that lol


Scyhaz

Apparently the gorilla god is named Ghekre in the comics. I don't think that one has a real life deity equivalent like Bast. Definitely a little weird to borrow a Hindu god, at least Bast is Egyptian so that makes more sense for an African society.


SirAlex505

She’s the LAST person I wanted to for the next BP 🙄 hope this isn’t true.


Raziel66

I was even fond of the idea of a multiverse killmonger getting a redemption here as black panther. Could have been badass if pulled off right but they have two other fantastic actresses and characters *right there....*Shuri is a terrible choice


Cactuszach

I think multiple people will wear the suit, but one will wear it in the end.

Actually, the toy angle makes putting the suit on multiple folks a stronger idea. More suits on more warriors=more toys. Collect them all! Not a fan of that, but it's reality.

Rolloftape23456

Please don’t kill Namor Please don’t kill Namor Please don’t kill Namor


Danishroyalty

Definitely not. Especially since they're introducing the F4 in a few years. They're not gonna pass up the chance to get Namor and Reed on screen together.


Friedsche

Sounds like that one Rick and Morty Episode.


andreauwashere

I AM MR NIMBUSSSSS


btmvideos37

I control the police!


CometMedalChavez

It's his first film, I think he's safe. Same with Ironheart, she has a series coming, though I'm not sure if it's set before or after Wakanda Forever.


Danishroyalty

I think most likely to die is Ramonda. Everyone else seems safe.


neophlegm

Okoye maybe? Depends how her contract looks


Danishroyalty

Yeah Okoye maybe. But I think her character is well loved. And there are rumors of a Dora-Milaje show, which I assume Danai would star in. Unless the show is about the Dora-Milaje losing their leader...


Centurio

I feel like the Dora-Milaje losing their leader route would be kinda redundant since that's kinda what Wakanda Forever is doing (dealing with the loss of their leader).


redpurplegreen22

Namor is safe, he’s too important of a character to die. He can have involvement with Mutants (Namor is a mutant in the comics). In Fantastic Four lore, he is a romantic rival of Reed Richards for Susan Storm, so him showing up in the Fantastic Four movie wouldn’t be too shocking, either. Besides, with the multiverse fuckery, no one really dies. Just “I’m from a different universe, now I’m here” and they’re back.


ksg_aoty

hes also prertty much confirmed to be a mutant in this


Openheart873

The actor confirmed he is a mutant in an interview a few weeks ago, so yeah confirmed in the movie too.


TrueGuardian15

I take statements outside the films with a grain of salt. Remember when that one extra for Black Widow said his character was secretly Ursa Major and was the first on screen mutant, even though all he did was lose arm wrestling? Remember when the writers for Endgame said Hulk's arm was permenantly damaged, but then She-Hulk undid that in its first episode?


slade707

So I guess it’s gonna be Shuri? Lame. Was really holding out for Nakia


Mister100Percent

I was hoping for M’Baku just to see a tall absolutely bricked out Black Panther


Ghee_Guys

Give me M’Baku Black Panther or give me death


Jewel-jones

Nakia was such a good character and Lupita is great. I would have also accepted M’baku or Okoye.


UncleRooku87

She really was the legit worst choice they could have made to take up the black panther mantle.


Fearless-Emphasis-87

I know the pieces are there to make this an awesome movie but having Letitia wright as the lead seems awful


ookos_

Aztech approach to Namor is sick


[deleted]

Great way to separate him from Aquaman in the minds of the GA


attemptedmonknf

>the GA Yeah green arrow does get people mixed up sometimes


typesett

Natural fit I think I think if he was created more recently in the comics this would have been a nice culture to lean into


unok157

Aztecs are seriously underused in media. There’s so much cool shit movies and games can do with them.


TheConqueror74

All of the old American cultures are.


primo_0

Well there was popular genre about killing them off.


Recoil42

Afrofuturism + Aztech is such a wild concept for a movie in general.


N3rdC3ntral

Bringing in all these modern and ancient cultures is pretty awesome.


mostlygroovy

I find Letitia Wright has such limited acting ability and charisma that making her the star is not going to land well. Add to her off screen antics and I'm not that optimistic that this was a good way to take the characters.


Fluffstarmoon

The only other thing I’ve seen her in is Death on the Nile and she was tied with Gal Gadot for most awful performance.


shmere4

Imagine that being on your resume and then having Disney hand you a leading role.


dannotheiceman

I do find kind of funny that the new lead in a movie about futuristic science and technology was so openly against the use of modern science and technology


G8kpr

It would be like the star of the Handmaids tale being a Scientologist or something….. Oh wait….


stillherewondering

This remains one of the most funny things in recent television history to me. It’s so ridiculous and NotTheOnion.


Shakespeare257

It goes to show two things: If you are in a cult you are probably quite good at "acting" like a normal human being, but also being able to switch to full psycho on a whim. And that casting agents and executives in Hollywood are deeply compromised. The fact that Handmaid's Tale thought that this was a reasonable idea, or that Disney did not take the chance to kill Shuri off-screen is insane to me.


30SecondsToFail

>take the chance to kill Shuri off-screen Or just outright replace Shuri like they did for War Machine. I'm pretty sure most people wouldn't even question it. Or hell, find some dumb way to bring back Kilmonger and have this movie be a redemption arc (or at least the start of one) for him


Scaevus

Now now, Scientology doesn’t mandate the subjugation of women. They mandate the subjugation of everyone.


TheNightIsLost

She's a boor, and that carries into her acting. She acts like a smug facebook antivaxxer but is supposed to be a genius princess.

Big_Domino_Piece

yeah, his character and how andy serkis brought him is so fun and interesting to watch.


exitwest

You can tell he was obviously having an absolute blast playing that guy. I don’t think I’ve ever seen a Marvel villain have so much fun on screen.


ScottNewman

The best villains don't see themselves as villains. He was just an arms dealer who stole from Wakanda, and they spent the next 20+ years chasing him down. From his perspective he's just a rich guy dealing with a pissed-off victim - it's just nature of the business.


boss_nooch

That was my favorite part about him compared to all the other mcu villains. While everyone else had some sort of goal or “cosmic purpose,” Klaue just wanted to make money lol


exitwest

....and a mix tape.


AdmiralCharleston

Pretty sure even coogler or feige said that they regretted that big time.


PayneTrain181999

I loved him shooting two guys, telling the third one he could go if he didn’t tell anyone, only to shoot him when he’s halfway out of the room.


cjyoung92

"Bruh why didn't you just shoot him right here?"


PayneTrain181999

“Because it’s better to leave the crime scene more spread out. Makes us look like amateurs.”


NinetyFish

I really liked their little partnership of mutual respect before they fight. I always enjoy when people just get along professionally without backstabbing. That little exchange was nice. Killmonger was genuinely asking, and Klaue gave him a genuine piece of advice rather than a snarky or condescending response.


Earthpig_Johnson

Pretty weird too, since he could’ve turned into a fully-CGI character. I fully expected that to be the case (to follow the comics), yet here we are.


Queef-Elizabeth

I'm kinda over literally everyone coming back to life somehow


RegHater76

I posted it in another MCU related thread, but once a series starts to throw time travel and Multiverse stuff into it, it really kills a lot of my interest in it, because now the stakes are basically gone. Character dies? Haha, think again! We'll just travel time to stop their death, or bring in one of them from another universe. Like when I first saw "Infinity War", I remember people gasping in the theater when Gamora and Loki were killed, because "holy shit, they're really going in unexpected directions here!". It actually felt impactful. But nope: thanks to multiverses and time travel and all that baloney, they're back in next to no time. It just kills the feeling of there being any real stakes or that anyone can 'lose' here.


BoneSpurApprentice

Hard agree. It was cool in endgame and even AoS, but I knew that was the beginning of the end for me. They’ve used the trope way too much in a short bit of time.


lobut

lol, must have been because of Endgame, right? seriously though, I agree with you. Even though I didn't want Klaue to die, every time you bring back someone from the dead it makes the entire universe worse. If death has no meaning then sacrifice has no meaning and the impact of movies and scenes mean nothing. In the Matrix, almost every fight had a purpose and every agent fight was scary as hell because you knew agents couldn't die and the humans could. Which is why many fights in the sequels didn't have the same impact. There was a feeling of: why am I watching Neo fight? He can't lose.


Away_Macaron6188

Lmao, both sides of the political spectrum hate her, this is going to go over well.


PD_Awae

for fucks sake, I thought it was fucking jack sparrow at first at the bottom. Lmao


PayneTrain181999

You will always remember this as the day that you almost saw Captain Jack Sparrow.


ThePughskii

Shuri as new BP is a huge disappointment. Suit is cool though.


Splobs

I couldn’t agree more, I find her and her character annoying as fuck. She was bearable in BP purely due to Chadwick’s superb acting ability.


EpicBigBoyBrody

I think it would’ve been cooler if M’Baku took the role. A cool character arc for him in my opinion


DaHyro

As great as Winston Duke would be as a hero, that’d be terrible. M’Baku doesn’t even believe in the panther god, he follows an entirely different religion.


JayPtl

Glory to Hanuman


[deleted]

> M’Baku doesn’t even believe in the panther god, he follows an entirely different religion. "Doesn't believe" is a weird take on a polytheistic culture. He clearly knows Bast exists.


qlanga

This! He worships a different god, but the gods are connected (usually, in polytheistic cultures) and aren’t *always* enemies. He can take the mantle for his people and the necessity of the power to do that, but still rep Hanuman in the suit…the latter detail is a must, though lol.
