Actress Michaela Coel has just officially joined the cast of Black Panther: Wakanda Forever in a, so far, mysterious role. Is it possible that she will play the mutant Storm?
Since the sequel began production, some rumors have started to suggest that in the film there will be a war with the underwater kingdom of Atlantis.
Thus, Coel may play one of the first mutants in the Marvel Cinematic Universe (UCM) to be a major ally in that battle.
Storm even married King T’Challa in the comics, becoming an important part of Wakanda and the Black Panthers’ lineage.
Even in one of the comics, it was seen that T’Challa told the mutant that her powers were “a divine gift, passed down from her ancestors.”
However, it is important to remember that actor Chadwick Boseman tragically passed away, and Marvel has no intention of recasting the character – making the romance story fall flat.
However, a recent story could serve as inspiration for the character’s arrival: in a parallel universe, Storm was reinvented as Queen of Kenya. It would make a lot of sense, wouldn’t it?
