A newly-surfaced Wakanda Forever Funko POP! gives us our best look yet at the new Black Panther suit in the upcoming film.
The biggest question heading into Wakanda Forever is who will take on the Black Panther mantle from T’Challa. Many believe Shuri will end up as the successor just like in the comics, but M’Baku, Killmonger, and others could also become the next Black Panther.
The Next Black Panther
The new Black Panther suit was seen briefly at the end of the first Wakanda Forever trailer. The suit looked similar to the one Killmonger wore with the gold trimming. Now a Funko POP! from the upcoming film surfaced online and now gives us an idea of what the front of the Black Panther suit will look like. The photo originally came from pop_and_pops on Instagram; you can see it via Twitter below.
