People Are Convinced They Know Who the Next Black Panther Is Because of Tiny Detail In New Trailer

And of course, everyone has opinions on it.

Once the internet starts saying something, it's a little hard to stop the ball from rolling. Although in this case we totally hope that an internet rumor is true. According to some eagle-eyed fans, they totally believe they know who the next Black Panther will be. The big tipoff happened during a recent trailer for the Black Panther: Wakanda Forever.

The whole thing came to light after Twitter user @CultureCrave shared a copy of the trailer. Take a look!

"New TV spot for #WakandaForever with new footage," the tweet reads. The trailer shows the next biggest threat to Wakanda — a antagonist named Namor who threatens to take over now that Black Panther has passed. 

Whew! We already have chills just thinking about how good this is going to be. But some people in the comments section took things to a whole other level and noticed that there seemed to be more to the trailer than initially meets the eye. 

"Those waves are literally a dead giveaway that Shuri is the new Black Panther, they can’t keep hiding this," wrote @jonathon_fyck. "I wonder who it could be. these arm enhancements don’t give us any hints at all," @saddleguse joked. "As if we didn’t already know it was Shuri," @NateMacher chimed in. "Definitely his sister as the new #BlackPanther judging by the physical appearance I'd put money on it being a woman and here for it," @thorpie15 added. 

Although what was really clear is that people are completely stoked for the sequel. "Very excited to see this film," @batknight66 commented. "With each clip, this looks more and more amazing," @NavdeepSGusain1 agreed. "Namor looks like a freaking bad—ss. CANT WAIT!!!!" @@SnakeEater_MCOC exclaimed. 

We don't know who the next Black Panther will be, but we do know that we'll be at the theater when Black Panther: Wakanda Forever premieres on November 11.
