Funko officially unveiled its first wave of Black Panther: Wakanda Forever POPs earlier this year, but a new addition to the line has now been spotted in the wild, and it gives us our first proper look at the new Black Panther costume.
This is (presumably) the suit that will be donned by whoever ends up taking over the mantle from T'Challa (the late Chadwick Boseman), and while we have caught glimpses of the design in LEGO sets and the like, this gives us a much better idea of how the outfit will look in the upcoming sequel.
As you can see in the link below, the gold details on the mask match the accents we saw on the lower half of the costume in the final shot of the trailer.
Possible spoilers ahead.
At this stage, it seems pretty obvious that Shuri (Letitia Wright) will become the new Black Panther, but it has yet to be officially confirmed. There's always a chance the movie will surprise us and have a different character step up, but T'Challa's little sister seems like the safest bet.
In Black Panther: Wakanda Forever, Queen Ramonda (Angela Bassett), Shuri (Letitia Wright), M’Baku (Winston Duke), Okoye (Danai Gurira), and the Dora Milaje (including Florence Kasumba), fight to protect their nation from intervening world powers in the wake of King T’Challa’s death. As the Wakandans strive to embrace their next chapter, the heroes must band together with the help of War Dog Nakia (Lupita Nyong’o) and Everett Ross (Martin Freeman) and forge a new path for the kingdom of Wakanda. Introducing Tenoch Huerta as Namor, king of a hidden undersea nation, the film also stars Dominique Thorne, Michaela Coel, Mabel Cadena, and Alex Livanalli.
Black Panther: Wakanda Forever hits theaters on November 11.
