Ever since the tragic death of Chadwick Boseman, fans have been theorizing about who would be the next to take on the mantle of Black Panther, especially since Marvel Studios confirmed they would not be recasting the character of T’Challa or using CG to re-create his likeness. Now, it seems that there’s new fuel to the discussion thanks to leaks that have surfaced showcasing the new Black Panther: Wakanda Forever LEGO sets.

While the sets themselves don’t explicitly confirm the news, it does appear from the images that have come out seemingly confirm a long-held fan theory that Letitia Wright’s Shuri will become the new Black Panther. The suggestions were made also following the debut of the film’s trailer at San Diego Comic-Con which teased a shot of the superhero, where fans noticed a more feminine silhouette compared to their previous appearances via Boseman. It’d also make sense within Marvel, as Shuri did take on the mantle of Black Panther for some time in the comics.

Of course, all of this is still yet to be confirmed by Marvel, so those following the MCU should definitely stay tuned for more updates to come.

Elsewhere in entertainment, David Leitch has confirmed that Bob Odenkirk’s Nobody is receiving a sequel.
