By the exit of Black Panther, T’Challa defeats Killmonger by impaling him with a vibranium spear. Wakanda’s medical technology could have saved him – but Killmonger says he’d rather die than spend the rest of his life in prison. And so T’Challa honors his cousin’s last request and lets his family rival perish.
That’s what happened. But Marvel Cinematic Universe is a full blown multiverse now. And somewhere out in that multiverse, there is at least one alternate reality where T’Challa made a different decision and saved Killmonger’s life over his objections. This one choice would have had huge ramifications for the rest of the MCU, and not just for the latest sequel, Black Panther: Wakanda Forever. In our latest Marvel video we go down the rabbit hole of What if…? and consider how a living Killmonger might have changed Avengers: Infinity War and Final game, along with a host of other Marvel shows and movies. See our theory below:
