A third Black Panther film could become a reality, according to Letitia Wright, who suggested that a threequel was “already in the works” after speaking to Variety before the 2023 Golden Globes ceremony.

Wright discussed the “terrific two years” in the lead up to the release of Wakanda Forever and added that the cast and crew would “need a little bit of a break. We need to regroup [director Ryan Coogler] needs to get back in the lab. It’s gonna take a while, but I’m really excited for you guys to see that.”

However, Wright backtracked on her statement later in the conversation, so it’d be best not to get our hopes up too soon. Plus, with nothing slated across Phase 5 and 6 of the MCU, it could be some time before we see a new Black Panther film, and see Wright’s Shuri, who assumed the mantle from the late Chadwick Boseman’s titular superhero, step up as the next iteration of the Black Panther.

“I always try to do positive thinking and believe that good words manifest,” Wright added. “So I’m manifesting a Black Panther 3, why not?”

Black Panther: Wakanda Forever was released on November 11, 2022, and stars Letitia Wright, Tenoch Huerta, Michael B. Jordan, Dominique Thorne, Angela Bassett, and Danai Gurira. Wakanda Forever is expected to debut for UK audiences on Disney+ on Wednesday, February 1.

As one film reaches the streamer, another Marvel flick will hit the cinemas in the same month, Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania. Scheduled as the first film from Phase 5, there’s even a brand-new trailer, as reported by FlickLuster.
