Everything you need to know about T’Challa’s son in Black Panther: Wakanda Forever

Heavy spoilers for Black Panther: Wakanda Forever!

Black Panther: Wakanda Forever has finally fulfilled its gigantic role of wrapping up Phase 4 of the MCU’s multiverse saga. The movie turned out to be an emotional roller coaster that cleverly dealt with several serious issues facing the nation of Wakanda after losing its respected leader. But before the final credits roll, this movie also follows MCU’s usual habit of teasing a major future element of their mid-credits scene. In this case, it was King T’Challa’s son, Toussaint.

Director Ryan Coogler introduced King T’Challa’s Secret Son with Nakia before the final credits. Fans were confused by Toussaint’s first look as they couldn’t recall the character being seen anywhere in Marvel comics.

Who is Toussaint in Black Panther 2?

The sequel to 2018 Black Panther starring the late Chadwick Boseman had a lot of work to do in the final ongoing Phase 4 film. With the existing task of presenting the emotional state of the Wakandans after the loss of King T’Challa to Namor’s introduction, the film was perfectly balanced. But the main surprise came at the end when we were shown T’Challa’s secret son with Nakia.

In the film’s mid-credits scene, Nakia introduces a boy called Toussaint to Shuri. She further revealed that it was her son with T’Challa and she was secretly raising her son in Haiti so he could stay away from politics and all the royal drama in Wakanda. But she also assured that when the time comes, he will rightfully take the throne of the vibranium-rich nation.

Next, we were shown a brief sarcastic interaction between Letitia Wright’s character and Prince T’Challa before the final whistle of the ending. Now, audiences were left in a state of confusion when this character came out of nowhere. But to be precise, Toussaint played by the young actor Divine Love Konadu-Sun is not there in the comics. Even though T’Challa has a son in the comics, it’s Azari with the mutant Storm who is also part of a different storyline.

So it’s obvious that once again the MCU has taken a different approach by introducing a character of their own. But minds still can’t stop wondering as many are still confused about Shuri’s reign as Black Panther and how Prince T’Challa will fit into the narrative.

Shuri’s reign as Black Panther is short-lived

After Toussaint’s introduction, many ask that Shuri is now the Black Panther, so how the mantle will be received by the prince. So the simple conclusion is that this is a short-term takeover by Shuri.

Shuri ingested the herb and took over the title of Protector of Wakanda primarily to avenge Queen Ramonda’s death as well as to protect Wakanda from immediate threat. Had she not taken this step, the Talocans would have been superior to Wakanda’s forces.

On the other hand, Prince T’Challa is also currently 6-7 years old, so there is plenty of time before we can see him in full action in the MCU. It’s highly unlikely the character will be a huge part of the Avengers’ colossal plans like Secret Wars. Additionally, after a while, the character may also be introduced in a project centered around young Avengers.

But it is certain from the end of the film that the character would definitely return with the third opus of Black Panther. But until then, we can’t do anything but wait.
