This article contains a MAJOR POTENTIAL SPOILER for Black Panther: Wakanda Forever! Please read at your own risk!

Hi there! The new Black Panther identity is apparently being spoiled by a LEGO set. I’m sure Marvel is excited right now. All that secrecy, NDA nonsense and carefully planned trailer deals may have gone up in smoke. It’s the nature of the beast, I suppose, but still. Whew! If you don’t want to be spoiled with the new Black Panther identity, now is the time to turn back.

An example image for an upcoming one Black Panther: Wakanda Forever The LEGO set is making the rounds online, revealing which character is wearing an updated version of the iconic Black Panther suit. Announced by 9to5 ToysLEGO Wakanda forever lineup launch in October shows a familiar Black Panther character wearing an all-too-familiar outfit with a few new bells and whistles. This point in the article is your last chance to return. Please don’t say I didn’t want you.

There are three LEGO sets based around Wakanda forever, all of which feature T’challa’s sister, Shuri, in some capacity. The three sets include Shuri’s Sunbird, King Namor’s Throne Room and Shuri’s Lab. While the kits fail to name Shuri the new Black Panther, the character wears an extended Black Panther suit for each LEGO set.

As the princess of Wakanda, it makes sense that Shuri would inherit the Black Panther mantle in the new film. While the LEGO sets are far from an official confirmation that Shuri (Letitia Wright) will be the next Black Panther, I think we can all put two and two together. She is wearing the suit teased at the end of the new one Black Panther: Wakanda Forever trailer. You can see the gold rim and all. Other candidates include Nakia (Lupita Nyong’o) and Okoye (Danai Gurira). However, the new LEGO sets suggest otherwise. We will have to wait for the official release of Black Panther: Wakanda Forever to know if today’s information is correct, although I’m reasonably confident that Shuri is a lock for the coveted role of protector of Wakanda.

You can see the image of LEGO’s set for Namor’s Throne Room below, which includes a close-up of Namor, his evil throne, an Atlantean warrior and Shuri wearing part of her new outfit.

What do you think about Shuri possibly becoming the new Black Panther? Are LEGO sets as good as an official confirmation of this kind? Let us know what you think in the comments section below.
