Not much is known about the plot of Black Panther 2 just yet, which is a bit surprising considering it’s only a few months away. Letitia Wright returns as Shuri, while Danai Gurira returns as Okoye, and Martin Freeman is once again Everett K. Ross. Winston Duke also returns as M’Baku, Lupita Nyong’o as Nakia, and Daniel Kaluuya as W’Kabi. The film will be the first appearance of Dominique Thorne’s Riri Williams, who will soon have her own Disney Plus show, Ironheart.
