RUMOR: Dr. Doom to Spark a War Between Atlantis and Wakanda in ‘Black Panther II’
Marvel Studios has quite a lot of different projects in the pipeline. After a recent hiatus, we have entered a new era for the Marvel Cinematic Universe. WandaVision is only a few hours away from introducing us to their first attempt at a story unfolding throughout multiple episodes. Of course, we still have many great films heading our way. Among them is the upcoming release for Black Panther 2. After the tragic death of Chadwick Boseman, the film’s direction was uncertain. Marvel Studios’ president Kevin Feige confirmed that they would not recast the character of T’Challa. Of course, it had massive ramifications for the film. It looks like FandomWire believes they have gotten their hand on the film’s potential story.
They believe that the film will open up with T’Challa in his iconic Black Panther suit. Nothing is set in stone, but he will pass on as an event of whatever mission he is on. As a result, it seems that the current plan is for Shuri to take over the mantle and rule Wakanda. During these events, scientists will stumble upon the lost city of Atlantis, which will start a war with Wakanda. Of course, this would mean that Namor the Sub-Mariner will make his live-action premiere. There are plans to film a large chunk of the film underwater, which is already getting tested.
They also believe that Doctor Doom will be the one pulling the strings that leads to this confrontation. It is uncertain how he may play into this. While FandomWire believes Wakandan divers stumble upon the city, it may have gotten orchestrated by Doom to test something out. He isn’t your typical world domination villain, so he might have a plan that somehow connects to these events. He may also want to get his hands on Vibranium, so he created the ultimate distraction. It is all just speculation, and the film is quite a few years away. Until then, a lot can happen during the film’s rewriting process.
