'Black Panther: Wakanda Forever' deleted scene imagines Okoye as queen

Forever Wakanda is coming to Disney+ on February 1st.

Deleted scenes from 2022's Black Panther: Wakanda Forever have been released. Published by IGN, this scene depicts the aftermath of Namor's attack on Wakanda. Black Panther: Wakanda Forever is the second film in the Black Panther Marvel Cinematic Universe franchise and serves as a bittersweet farewell to the first Black Panther cast member, the late Chadwick Boseman. The film focuses on honoring Boseman as an actor and character as T'Challa, as well as his funeral scene.

Wakanda Forever tells the story of the life and struggles of the people of Wakanda after the death of their heroes and king. The film follows his sister Shuri (Leetitia Wright) and their mother Ramonda (Angela Bassett), who became queens after their son's death, as they deal with loss. The film also explores how the Wakanda nation is coping as a whole. And if that wasn't enough, Wakanda also faces a threat from Talokan. They have two options, fight them or fight them.

The deleted scene posted was released after Queen Ramonda's death. In a scene titled "Women of the Frontier," Okoye (Danai Gurira) discusses the next move for the ruler of Wakanda following the events. Okoye Asked to step up and replace the Frontier Tribes as the next queen of Wakanda because people mistrust Suri, who lost her mother shortly after her brother died.

Although producer Nate Moore had earlier hinted that some scenes would be made public, the deleted scene was an unexpected surprise for fans. In an interview with Collider, Moore stated that the production team was opposed to releasing an extended version of the film, while adding that certain scenes may be made public.

“Yeah, we’ve typically resisted that, and I think we’ll continue to because we like to think we and the filmmakers landed on what the movie should be. So I don’t know that we’ll ever assemble it. I’ll never say never. I don’t think we’ll assemble it into a longer Director’s Cut. But certainly, I think there’s ways to get those scenes out there in the world without building an extended edition."

Black Panther: Wakanda Forever comes February 7 in 4K UHD, Blu-ray, DVD and February 1 on Disney+. Watch the deleted scene, which includes Gurira and Danny Sapani, below:
