‘Avengers 5’ Will Reportedly Feature Chadwick Boseman’s Black Panther Replacement and These Other MCU Heroes


Avengers 5 still in the works despite the pandemic unrest triggered by Marvel over the past six months. All of the Marvel Cinematic Universe’s level 4 films designed for 2020 – as well as the new Disney + shows – will continue to push back further and further into next year. But eventually the MCU sees a team of new Avengers. When that happens, replacement Chadwick Boseman Black Panther joins a new group of MCU heroes.

Marvel had planned to replace Black Panther with Chadwick Boseman before he died

There is no question that Boseman ‘s tragic death in August affected Marvel’ s plans. Boseman’s T’Challa starred in one of the MCU’s most successful solo films. But according to We got this covered, Marvel has been planning to replace T’Challa as Black Panther for the past year

In 2019, they announced that Boseman would not relinquish the franchise. However, either in Black Panther 2 or 3, he would hand over the title to Shuri (Letitia Wright). This move would have allowed T’Challa to become the full-time king of Wakanda. And, it would have appeared in other MCU movies.

Shuri’s takeover has also been a fan theory for a long time because that’s what happened in the comics. Shuri as Black Panther fits the plans of the head of the studio, Kevin Feige, for a more diverse MCU.

It’s unclear how Marvel plans to move forward with Black Panther 2 after Boseman’s death. But they have options for Black Panther as well as Shuri. They could join Okoye, M’Baku, or Nakia. But Shuri as a Black Panther seems to be the side Marvel is going.

Black Panther Shuri is reportedly part of ‘Avengers 5’

The biggest question surrounding the Black Panther sequel is how to handle Boseman’s death. Marvel has the option to redesign T’Challa’s space. But that seems unlikely. There is a danger that the studio will come across as something disrespectful to Boseman. In addition, it would be difficult for Marvel to find a willing and capable replacement.

They were able to choose a digital concert after the death of Boseman. Just like The Rise of Skywalker made by Leia Carrie Fisher. However, the most likely option is for T’Challa to die off the screen and give Shuri the Black Panther title.

“So part of his last plan was to give people metal bodies: so how would he go about this? Well that’s easy: One, he knew about the Vibranium mountain in Wakanda to give him all the metal he needed to create the next version of humanity, & second, he needed the Infinity Stones to Realize Its ‘Vision’, ”wrote ZeekOwl91.

Combining the Infinity Stones will allow Ultron to create an infinite loop and make it all-powerful. He could also bring people back with a snare, and they would have Vibranium bodies.

The theorist believes that humans with metal bodies would be as inevitable as Ultron. He would also prepare humanity for every future threat. Fans will have to wait a while to see if the theory is correct. Avengers 5 most likely two years away, at least.
