- "Black Panther: Wakanda Forever," premieres in theaters on November 11.
- The sequel is set after the death of the former King T'Challa (Chadwick Boseman).
- Insider has listed where we last saw the main characters in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
Queen Ramonda (Angela Bassett) makes her third appearance in the Marvel Cinematic Universe in "Black Panther: Wakanda Forever." Ramonda is the wife of the former leader of Wakanda, T'Chaka (John Kani), and the father of his successor, T'Challa (Chadwick Boseman).
Ramonda's last appearance was at the end of "Avengers: Endgame." She had previously lost both her son and daughter Shuri (Letitia Wright) for five years during the blip, the time period when half of the universe was snapped out of existence.
After they return, the family has a small reunion while looking over Wakanda as the country celebrates the return of their loved ones.
It is unclear how much time Ramonda has with her son before he dies in "Black Panther: Wakanda Forever."
Shuri (Letitia Wright) is T'Challa's younger sister and the head of the science division of Wakanda.
Her last MCU appearance was also in "Avengers: Endgame" when she attended the funeral of Iron Man (Robert Downey Jr.) with the rest of the Avengers.
Over the last two "Avengers" movies, she has helped the Avengers in the fight against Thanos (Josh Brolin), which cemented her place among them.
Additionally, since "Black Panther," she has been tasked with running the science and information exchange division of the Wakandan International Outreach Centre in Oakland, California. This is to help support the descendants of Africans across the world.
Nakia (Lupita Nyong'o), a War Dog spy for Wakanda, was last spotted in "Black Panther."
At the end of the movie, she seemed to have rekindled her romance with T'Challa, although it is unclear whether that relationship progressed since she hasn't been mentioned since the movie.
The upcoming sequel will certainly clear up what happened to their relationship over the years.
Okoye (Danai Gurira) was another key warrior in the fight against Thanos in "Avengers: Infinity War" and "Avengers: Endgame." Okoye is the general of the Dora Milaje, an elite female-only unit, that protects Wakanda and its royal family.
After fighting alongside the Avengers at the end of "Endgame," the character attended Iron Man's funeral next to T'Challa and Shuri. Since Okoye had a small role in the two "Avengers" films, there hasn't been a clear update about her relationship with her husband, W'Kabi (Daniel Kaluuya).
W'Kabi was last seen fighting against his wife in the battle for Wakanda at the end of "Black Panther." He eventually surrenders to her but hopefully "Wakanda Forever" will explain whether the pair were able to settle this issue.
Ayo (Florence Kasumba) is an enforcer for the Dora Milaje who has made appearances in "Captain America: Civil War" and "Black Panther." Her last appearance was in the "Falcon and the Winter Soldier" series on Disney+.
Episode four begins with a flashback to show how Ayo helped the Winter Soldier (Sebastian Stan) rehabilitate when he was living in Wakanda. In the present, Ayo asks the Winter Soldier to hand over Baron Zemo (Daniel Brühl).
The villain, who had orchestrated a bombing that led to the death of former Wakandan king T'Chaka, was broken out by Falcon (Anthony Mackie) and the Winter Soldier to help them track down super soldier terrorists. When John Walker (Wyatt Russell) intervenes in their mission, Zemo escapes.
In the following episode, the Wakandans and the Winter Soldier catch up with Zemo and take him back to the supervillain prison, the Raft.
M'Baku (Winston Duke) is the leader of the Jabari tribe, a group that lives in the mountains in Wakanda. Since allying with T'Challa, M'Baku and the rest of the tribe have appeared to interact with the rest of the country more.
M'Baku fought alongside the Avengers in the battle of Wakanda in "Avengers: Infinity War" and the final battle in "Avengers: Endgame."
