Black Panther has made many actors into icons and Winston Duke‘s M’Baku was among the many instant fan favorites. Not only was he a major player in the first film, but even went on to get the spotlight in Avengers: Infinity War and Endgame. He just recently made his return in the Black Panther sequel Wakanda Forever, which saw the cast help keep Chadwick Boseman‘s legacy alive.
Of course, there’s more to the franchise’s future as the Marvel Studios’ cinematic universe continues to further explore these characters. He believes that “The power of what Marvel has become is that it doesn’t belong to any one actor or anyone lead or character.” It was his way of highlighting that he doesn’t know where we’ll see M’Baku next but it mainly depends on when Marvel decides to bring him back.
Sadly, it seems that he might know exactly where he’ll make his return but he still seems up to potentially returning for more entries. There are a lot of potential storylines that could pick up where Wakanda Forever left off, especially now that the story implies he’s taken over as the king of Wakanda after Shuri passed on the mantle. Whenever Marvel Studios is ready to further expand its universe, it seems that Winston Duke will be back around to give us more of the lovable M’Baku.
