Black Panther 3 Release Date: When It Will Premiere?

Even though Black Panther 2 just came out, many Marvel fans are already thinking about what the third movie might be like. In the Marvel Cinematic Universe, there are a lot of different superheroes and intellectual properties, but it's easy to see that Black Panther is one of the most popular. The first movie won three Academy Awards, and early reviews of the sequel have been good.

So here is our research for when Black Panther 3 will come out, what it will be about, who will be in it, and more.

Black Panther 3: Renewal Status

Before Wakanda Forever came out, there was no confirmation that there would be a third Black Panther movie. However, the movie ends with a message that says “Black Panther will return,” so it seems likely that there will be a third film.

Wright has now said that he thinks work on the third movie is beginning. He told Variety, “I think it's already in the works.

“You know, we just had a great two years putting it out and having everyone rally around it. We need a little break, we need to regroup, and Ryan needs to get back into the lab, so it will take a little while, but we're really excited for you guys to see that.”

Black Panther 3 Release Date

We don't know when it will come out yet, but since most of Marvel Studios' movies for the next two years have already been announced, it's safe to say that it will be a while before the next Black Panther movie comes out, if it gets the green light as expected.

There's a chance that Black Panther 3 won't come out until Phase 7 of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. That could mean we have to wait until late 2026. That would be the same length of time between the first two Black Panther movies: four years.

Still, there is still three unannounced Phase 6 projects that are set to come out on July 25, 2025, November 7, 2025, and February 13, 2026, so Black Panther 3 could still take one of those slots. On this page, we'll let you know about all the latest news.

Who Will Be in the Cast of Black Panther 3?

Most of the main characters from Black Panther: Wakanda Forever is likely to come back for a third movie. This means we'll probably see more cast members:

  • Letitia Wright as Shuri
  • Winston Duke as M’Baku
  • Danai Gurira as Okoye
  • Lupita Nyong’o as Nakia
  • Florence Kasumba as Ayo
  • Michaela Coel as Aneka
  • Tenoch Huerta as Namor
  • Martin Freeman as CIA operative Everett Ross

What Will Happen in Black Panther 3?

Because of how the stories in the MCU are connected, it's hard to tell if Wakanda Forever is setting up a third movie or other MCU projects. Here's where things stand at the end of the sequel.

Shuri is now the Black Panther. When she visits Nakia in Haiti to burn T'Challa's funeral clothes and say goodbye to him, she meets T'Challa's son. Nakia told Shuri that she could stay in Haiti, but Shuri knows that Wakanda needs her.

Shuri misses the coronation ceremony in Wakanda, and it looks like M'Baku makes a bid for the throne. But it's not clear if he really means this or just wants to be funny.

At the end of Wakanda Forever, peace has been made between Wakanda and Talokan because Shuri saved Namor's life. He thinks that the people of Wakanda will turn to Talokan for help when the outside world comes to get them.

It looks like the MCU is getting ready for a battle between Wakanda and the United States. At the beginning of the movie, the US government blames Wakanda for the attack on their ship that was looking for vibranium in the ocean.

Valentina (Julia Louis-Dreyfus), who wants to get her hands on vibranium, seems to be behind the conflict. When she finds out that Ross has been working secretly with the Wakandans, she arrests him.

At the end of the movie, Okoye helps Ross get out of prison transport. It's possible that this conflict doesn't come to a head in Black Panther 3 but in another MCU project.
