BLACK PANTHER: WAKANDA FOREVER Set Photos Give Us A Much Better Look At Riri Williams BLACK PANTHER: WAKANDA FOREVER Set Photos Give Us A Much Better Look At Riri Williams

We caught a distant first glimpse of Dominique Thorne as Riri Williams on the set of Black Panther: Wakanda Forever earlier this week, but some new photos now give us a much better look at the actress.

As filming continues on Black Panther: Wakanda Forever in and around MIT in Cambridge, these latest photos from the set give us a much better look at If Beale Street Could Talk star Dominique Thorne, who will make her MCU debut as Riri Williams in the Marvel sequel before taking the lead in the Ironheart Disney+ series.

The snaps don't really give us a whole lot to go on, but it certainly looks like Williams will be attending the university, and with Okoye (Danai Gurira) and Shuri (Letitia Wright) in the vicinity, there's speculation that they might be there to recruit Riri for something. Another theory suggests that Williams might be retconned to be Wakandan herself and is simply unaware of her true heritage.

Check out the photos at the link below.

We still don't know a whole lot about the Marvel sequel, but Chadwick Boseman, who tragically passed away last August after a 4-year battle with colon cancer, will not be replaced as T'Challa or "resurrected" via CGI. Shuri is the favorite to take up the mantle of Black Panther, but some would prefer to see Winston Duke's M'Baku honor his old foe-turned-ally by assuming the responsibility of Wakanda's protector .

A rumor that Narcos Mexico actor Tenoch Huerta will play Namor in the movie recently did the rounds, but that obviously remains to be seen.

Marvel Studios announced that the highly-anticipated sequel will be titled Wakanda Forever during a recent Phase 4 preview. Specific plot details remain under wraps, but a brief logline tells us that "Wakanda Forever will continue to explore the incomparable world of Wakanda and all of the rich and varied characters introduced in the first film."

I’ve never read Ironheart’s comics but I did see her origin and I think Marvel is smart enough to maybe change things up a bit. Riri being introduced through the outreach program makes total sense

Not much to see here.

If she wasn't wearing the MIT shirt and you didn't tell me that was RiRi, I'd just think that was a pic of some rando kid.

@Waddles - Thanks. I was searching for any detail in such a mundane pic. I'm still trying to decide if that's a heart shaped necklace or not, lol

@dragon316 - You remind me of a guy I used to date. Complains about everything and was rarely happy

It's a pretty standard internet abbreviation. I can't help it if you get lost.

Keep up or shut up.

@dragon316 - For an illiterate person you sure do spend a lot of time nitpicking other people's text.

OT:

Marvel's looking for a Latino lead for a Halloween Special.

I'm SO goddamn happy!! Marvel has answered my prayers that they would extend the "Holiday Special" concept into its own little series that spans different heroes and holidays
