‘Make It Happen Ryan Coogler’: Marvel Fans Demand Disney+ Series About Bashenga, The First Black Panther

Both Black Panther films were deeply embedded in the culture. While the first film explored African culture, the second brought ancient Aztec and Mayan cultures back to the present day. But wouldn’t it be pretty amazing if we could delve deeper into Black Panther’s story, just like we did for Namor? Black Panther revealed how Earth got Vibranium in an opening montage. And he also teased how the shaman Bashenga became the first Black Panther. Whether or not Marvel chooses to tell its story remains to be seen. But we have some new artwork that could be used to shed some light on Bashenga’s backstory.

Who was King Bashenga?

King Bashenga

Back when all the tribes of Wakanda were divided, it was this lore warrior shaman who united all the tribes. After seeing a vision of the goddess Bast, he was led to a powerful herb that had grown on vibranium-rich soil. On Bast’s instructions, he consumed the herb and became a superhuman. He was the first King of Wakanda and he also became the first Black Panther. After his demise, his Golden Tribe descendants continued to take on the role of Black Panther.

In fact, just by looking at these concept arts, you would actually want a project based on King Bashenga and his unification of the five tribes. John Boyega is an excellent choice to play young Bashenga. On top of that, adding Phastos also seems like a brilliant idea. And the fans reacted very well to this idea because most of them want Ryan Coogler to bring it to life.

Fan reactions to the Bashenga concept

Here is how netizens reacted to the concept of Bashenga – The First Black Panther:

It’s so good it feels real.

People want Bast!

Why we need to see this story come to life:

Really Badass!

Marvel should really consider retelling this historic event after Avengers: Secret Wars.

Maybe Ryan Coogler’s longtime deal with Disney could include that Wakandan story project with the Okoye series he’s supposed to be developing for Disney+. Bashenga’s plot would work pretty well as a Disney+ series for sure.

Black Panther: Wakanda Forever is currently playing in theaters around the world.
