Marvel announces new Black Panther spin-off show

Marvel has announced Eyes of Wakanda, an animated series that serves as a spin-off to Black Panther.

The studio was promoting the upcoming season of What If…? at an event last night (via Deadline), but had a surprise in store as it announced the new project.

“Throughout Wakandan history, brave warriors have been tasked to travel the world retrieving dangerous vibranium artefacts. This is their story,” reads the logline for Eyes of Wakanda.

There are no other details on the series other than the logline, so fans will have to wait for specific plot details as well as a release date and cast announcement.

It’s also unknown how closely the new series will be tied into the Black Panther film series, which continued last year with the sequel Wakanda Forever.

The film saw Shuri (Letitia Wright) assume the role of the superhero following the off-screen death of T’Challa, but the actor revealed she doesn’t know what the future holds for her character.

“No, I haven’t [been informed. I will know as soon as you know,” she said.

“We need a little bit of a break, we need to regroup, and [director] Ryan [Coogler] needs to get back into his lab, so it’s going to take a little while, but we’re really excited for you guys to see that.

“I always try to do positive words and positive thinking, and I believe that good words manifest, so I’m manifesting a Black Panther 3, why not?

“If there is to be another film, which I hope there will be, I think there will be. It takes time to make it. You have to go through the script process.”

There is currently no release date for Eyes of Wakanda. Black Panther and Black Panther: Wakanda Forever are streaming on Disney+.
