With speculation churning about who will succeed T'Challa's superhero mantle in Black Panther: Wakanda Foreverit's clear the best candidate to replace him is not his sister, Shuri, but rather the leader of the Dora Milaje, Okoye.

The question of who might replace T'Challa has been a point of heavy debate ever since Chadwick Boseman's tragic passing in 2020.

Though there have also been calls to recast the character, Marvel Studios confirmed he would not be recast, so it stands to reason that T'Challa will be written out of the MCU and a different character will become the Black Panther.

Shuri was the favorite to replace Black Panther soon after Boseman's death. These predictions were further fueled by the fact that she had the mantle in the comics, and by a report that Letitia Wright would be given a bigger role in the sequel.
