“Time is running out. Please allow me to heal my brother of this illness, and I will never question your existence again. His heart rate is dropping fast. Where are we? GRIOT, give me the controls. What is the confidence rate? We’ll have to try another way. I have to think. Everyone, get out. Get out! What is the confidence rate? Print it!” — Princess Shuri

“I don’t care! Has to work. GRIOT. What’s my brother’s heart rate? No.” — Princess Shuri

“I’m sorry, I’m sorry.” — Princess Shuri

“Just a moment. I’m in the middle of something. You’re disrupting my train of thought. Mother. My AI isn’t like the movies, Mother. It does exactly what I tell it to do. Yes. Rapid emergency response task. There could be any number of unknown threats on the horizon, and they’re creating solutions. Exo Suits for our army. It grants the user super-human strength, speed, and durability. But, as always, Okoye had notes. She hates them. Maybe you should continue your calculations as I instructed. We do not need the Herb, Mother. We need new technology. The Black Panther is a relic, mother. I wasn’t trying to save the mantle with the Herb, I was trying to save my brother. Tuesday. Have you planned anything? Right now? Mother.” — Princess Shuri

“I’m fine, Mother. You don’t have to worry about me. He’s gone, but I’m moving forward. He wasn’t there, Mother. The presence that you felt was just a construct of your mind. Brought on so you could feel some comfort or joy. That’s all.” — Princess Shuri

“How did you get this? What does this have to do with your ritual? I’m not doing this, Mother. If I sit and think about my brother for too long, it won’t be these clothes I’ll burn. It will be the world… and everyone in it. Mother, wait! What are you doing? This better not be a part of your ritual.” — Princess Shuri

“Mother, he’s covered in it. Did you see the wings on his ankles? How did he do that?” — Princess Shuri

“It’s you. Yes. This thing can detect the altered frequency of vibranium through water, stones, even heavy metals. Whoever built this is brilliant. Come, look. Some are custom parts and others look like they gathered it from a junkyard. Perhaps there was more than one meteorite. Our planet is covered of mostly water, so it’s reasonable that the other one just landed there.” — Princess Shuri

“So, when are we leavin’ so I can see my favorite colonizer? For your own safety, we cannot tell you. It’s imperative that we get to the scientist before anything else happens. You owe me, Ross. You owe my brother. A kid?” — Princess Shuri

“Is that an iPhone I see? It’s a student, Mother. We can’t give her to Namor. Wait. Maybe I should speak with her. It will be more discreet. Nothing. No. Fenty 440. You look good. I can blend in as a student. I can do this. Yes!” — Princess Shuri

“Riri Williams? It’s an encrypted file. I wanted to airdrop it. No. I’m here about the vibranium detector that you built for the CIA. A school project? How old are you? Brilliance at a young age is not always accepted by the elders. How long did it take you? Couple months? Not just us. This place is no longer safe for you. Gather your things and come with me. Right now. I had it under control. Hey. You brought a spear in here? You brought a spear in here. Hey, hey, hey, hey, hey. Put it down, put it… you’ll hurt yourself. Come on. No, it’s not. You look good. Calm down. We’ll leave, okay? And she can deal with that merman with the winged ankles who wants to kill her all by herself. You got this. Come on. Let’s go.” — Princess Shuri

“That’s impressive. Ever locked yourself out? What is it you’re building here? Is it Stark tech? Shit. My AI. Listen, we need to work together to get out of here. General, they’ve got us surrounded. Maybe we should just split up. Does this vehicle work? Everything in this lab works. Including this bike. Whoo! I knew it. Don’t tell me that you built this in two months. Nice. Have you flown it yet? That’s awesome. Come. Wireless transmitter, so we can communicate. Don’t try to scurry off. General, we really need to split up. Always shouting at me. GRIOT! Now! GRIOT. Give me a visual. Okoye, I’ m on my way to you. Okoye, I’m on my way to you. There’s one across the river. How high? Riri, I’m not sure you can reach that drone without an oxygen mask.” — Princess Shuri

“Your brother is with the ancestors.”

“My son. Descendant of the most revered King Bashenga, the first Black Panther.”

“It has always been our policy to never trade vibranium under any circumstance. Not because of the dangerous potential of vibranium, but because of the dangerous potential of you. You perform civility here. But we know what you whisper in your halls of leadership and in your military facilities. ‘The King is dead. The Black Panther is gone. They have lost their protector. Now is our time… to strike.'”

“Last night there was another attack on one of our outreach facilities. Proof of the involvement of a member state is being uploaded to your mobile devices as we speak. And as for the identity of the attackers… let our gracious response to this incursion be an olive branch. Further attempts on our resources will be considered an act of aggression and met with a much steeper response. We mourn the loss of our king. But do not think for a second that Wakanda has lost her ability to protect our resources. We are aware of the ongoing efforts by some to find vibranium outside of Wakanda, and wish you the best of luck.”

“Shuri. Thank you. That thing unnerves me. I think that one day artificial intelligence is going to kill us all. Yeah, if only children were the same. Everyone seems to be working diligently. Oh, what is this? What were her notes? Oh. What about recreating the Heart-Shaped Herb? Have you made any progress on that? What of the Black Panther? The mantle has unified our nation for centuries. Oh, Shuri. Do you know what day it is? The date, child. One year ago today. Yes. It involves you taking your mother for a drive. Right now. And you can leave your Kimoyo Beads here. No, no. You don’t need them where we are going. And the other two. Yes.”

“You need to sit here with me. And with yourself. It is the only way you are going to heal from the wound caused by T’Challa’s death. T’Challa is dead, but that doesn’t mean he is gone. When that illness took your brother from us, I had to lead a wounded nation and a broken world. But I still took time in the bush. I wandered until I found water. And I sat. Then I did this ritual that I am about to show you now. I found your brother in the breeze, pushing me gently, but firm. Like his hand on my shoulder. It took some time, but he was there.”

“What construct does your mind create when you think of your brother? Does it offer you comfort? Or torment? Come, child. What does it matter? Burning of the funeral garments marks the end of the mourning period and the beginning of a new relationship with our loved ones that have passed on… Shuri… Shuri, there’s something that I need to tell you about your brother. It isn’t. Stop! Right there! Who are you? And how did you get in here?”

“I am not a woman who enjoys repeating herself. Who are you? Vibranium only exists here. In Wakanda. You do not sneak into my country and tell me what is fair. We must convene the Council.”

“Show some respect, you two. He was not alone. And claims to command a massive army. M’Baku, what would you have us do?”

“As you were. So does it work? This changes everything that we know. That sounds very painful. Mm. Out of the question. She is in no state to be in the field. It’s not the Americans that I’m worried about. This Namor, he snuck past our defenses. He was not alone.”

“A school? Please tell me it is a professor. Bring this student back to Wakanda.”

Namor, Black Panther: Wakanda Forever, Disney+, Marvel Studios, Walt Disney Pictures, Tenoch Huerta


“This place is amazing. The air is pristine. And the water… my mother told stories about a place like this. A protected land with people that never have to leave. That never have to change who they were. What reason do you have to reveal your secret to the world?”

“I have many names. My people call me K’uk’ulkan… but my enemies call me Namor. The American military detected vibranium under my nation’s domain. I was able to stop them from minin’ it, but we need Wakanda’s help to prevent it from happenin’ again. They use a machine designed by an American scientist.”

“Your son exposed the power of vibranium to the world. In response, other nations have begun searching the planet for it. His choice has compromised us. I think Wakanda could find the scientist and bring them to me? It is only fair that Wakanda helps to resolve our dilemma. I have more soldiers than this land has blades of grass. And they have incomparable strength. I would hate to come back under different circumstances.”

“When you have the scientist, blow into this, place it in the ocean. I’ll be there shortly afterwards. For your own sake, don’t mention anything about me to anyone outside of Wakanda.”

General Okoye, Black Panther: Wakanda Forever, Disney+, Marvel Studios, Walt Disney Pictures, Danai Gurira

General Okoye

“Aneka, where is your spear? Our foremothers gave us the spear… because it is precise, elegant… and deadly. It will not change under my watch.”

“Kneel! You’re welcome.”

“My Queen. Approaching the river border. We are home.”

“Heaven Scrapers had no evidence of any activity at all. If your muscle brains were present, they would still be there choking on their fuzzy adornments.”

“As I was saying, there was no aerial surveillance footage of him.”

“Is it just me, or does this keep getting uglier? I am still struggling to believe that vibranium exists outside of Wakanda. The Great Mound. All of the legends and fables. Those stories are seared in my mind. So we have to find this scientist after all. I do have an idea. I’m going to need the princess.”

“My Queen, it may do her some good to get out. It might just be exactly what she needs. Besides, I can do this American operation with my eyes closed. That will never happen again. She’ll be with me.”

“Now, why would I have your number? We are looking for the scientist who built the vibranium detector. What happened? I can assure you Wakanda had nothing to do with this. We will be very, very careful.”

“Primitive. My Queen. We have located the scientist. She is the American equivalent of a Wakandan village school. Yes, my Queen. I’ve got it from here. I can be discreet. What? Is it the makeup? It’s the wrong shade, isn’t it? You get five minutes.”

“I said five minutes. I gave you six. Oh! See how they teach the children to treat their guests? Mm! I like her. It’s all right, Princess. Small, small girl. I am going to give you two options. You can come to Wakanda, conscious or unconscious. Oh, it’s funny. Mm-hmm. I told you! Mm, with your heater.”

“What exactly is this place? You don’t have to worry about that. Mm-hmm. So, the design for the machine is on that laptop? And you just leave it on a desk in a car garage? They are surrounding us. Hey. Namor sank an entire ship of CIA operatives… …because of your little machine. So those popo out there… …are the very least of your worries. Out of the question. Don’t even think about it. Besides, there are three of us. That thing can fly? What a hunk of junk. Listen to me. We are not in your lab. We are in the field. Now, get her in the car. Guess it can fly. Shuri! No! GRIOT… …take me to the princess or I will drive my spear so deep into your CPU, you will not be able to process basic input for a millennia. GRIOT, give me control of this vehicle right now! We need to find an extraction point.”

M'Baku, Black Panther: Wakanda Forever, Disney+, Marvel Studios, Walt Disney Pictures, Winston Duke


“Oh, the river border has been breached, huh? If my soldiers were present, this ‘fish man’ would be bound before us as we speak. You bald-headed demon… respect? These men should be ashamed to show their faces!”

“That is because this wise council allowed Killmonger to take the throne and burn up all of your precious Heart-Shaped Herb. We should find the fish man and kill him. If we do what he is asking for now, what is to stop him from coming back and asking for more?”

Riri Williams, Black Panther: Wakanda Forever, Disney+, Marvel Studios, Walt Disney Pictures, Dominique Thorne

Riri Williams

“You forgot to Venmo me. Eight hundred was yesterday’s price. It’s a band today. And what grade did you get?”

“Yo! Yo, I don’t do drop-bys no more. You gotta go to the website. You the… whew. You’re Princess Shuri. What the hell are you doing here? Oh, shit, am I getting recruited? I ain’t built no detector for no CIA. I made that for my metallurgy class. Yeah. My professor said I’d never be able to do it. To be young, gifted, and Black though, right? Y’all probably don’t say that in Wakanda. Nineteen. Couple months. The hardest part was finding big enough mylar sheets to cover the… wait, did I piss off Wakanda? I got Differential Equations class in, like, 15 minutes. Okay. Okay. You wait right here. I’m gonna go to the bathroom. I’m just gonna… ooh. Get out. Get out of my dorm. Get out! I’m warning you! Do not take another step toward me! Oh… mm-mm. Mm-mm. You need to be conscious of the way that you look. Walking round here, all that ash on your head. What?”

“I fixed a few trucks for the head of sanitation. He lets me work out of this garage in exchange. I just have to grab my work laptop. Please don’t touch anything. It may not look like much, but it’s my life’s work in here. Yeah. I got a 2065-byte encryption on that thing. Took me the whole semester to get back in. Had to build a functional quantum computer just to crack my own encryption. I said don’t touch anything. Who was that? I thought you said a merman is after me. That’s the feds. Oh, I do not need this shit right now! I swear to God, I was doing so well! Goin’ to class on time. I must be dumb as hell. Real dumb thinking that the Princess of Wakanda is gonna show up at my doorstep and then shit about to pop off. I think that I’m actually gonna take my chances with this merman, because at least he never brought the FBI to my garage! No. Two of y’all. I’m takin’ this. I spent years on this. On and off. There’s an entire YouTube channel dedicated to sightings of me. Hey, please be careful. Keys are on the seat. Once we get to the other side of the bridge, we can lose them in Boston traffic. Let’s go! Hey, yo, they cuttin’ off the bridge. Hang on. I got it. Come on, Riri. You gotta find these differential equations. Once the relative velocity evens out… twenty-eight thousand feet.”

Everett Ross

“Yeah, I got it. I got it. Will you slow down? You didn’t think to call? So it was you guys in the Atlantic? Come on. Mining ship. Lots of casualties. Seriously? It was a joint operation. Us and the SEALs. Thirty of their top guys, two of our best officers, friends of mine. Gone. Just like that. You throw in the fact that they were tracking vibranium… so who was it? God, look, the way that this is supposed to work is that I give you information and you reciprocate. Okay, look. There are agents who have been sentenced to death for less than I’m about to give you now. And we got a new director. She’s watching me like a hawk. Not just careful, you gotta be fast. The US needs another machine and this kid is the only person in the world who knows how to build one. So they’re coming for her.”

Naval Officer

“Watch your tone, Jabari! And nothing on the radar as well.”

River Tribe Elder

“So, he swam underwater for 100 kilometers.”

Merchant Tribe Elder

“He wants us to deliver one American scientist? So he can kill them?”

Mining Tribe Elder

“We never had to face an enemy with access to vibranium before. And we have no Black Panther to protect us.”


“Shuri gave me these to try. You know, I like them better. Yes, General.”


“I told you not to bring them.”


“As you wish, Princess. King T’Challa’s heart rate has fallen to 31 beats per minute. 29.1%. Princess, I am aware of the urgency, but I must warn you, this synthetic Heart-Shaped Herb has a minimal chance of producing the desired effects.”

“Yes, princess?”

“Princess. I understand, Princess, however… I was trying to tell you. The Queen is here. Excuse me, Princess. Nakia, daughter of Yaa, is trying to reach you again. Maybe you should… as you wish, Princess.”

“Princess, American law enforcement has arrived at your location. The tactical unit will breach the entrance in three, two, one. Yes, Princess. Remote piloting activated. Yes, General? Just one moment, General. I am clearing you a path. She’s all yours, General. Manual drive engaged. Princess, there is a surveillance drone locked onto you. Thirty-thousand feet. Oxygen level is now 55%.”

FBI Agent

“This is the Federal Bureau of Investigation. We have surrounded the premises. We have a warrant to detain… …the student Riri Williams. General Okoye, Princess Shuri, come out with your hands up. You will not be placed under arrest. FBI! Don’t move! What the hell is that? Oh, shit! Get an Iron Man suit? Fall back! Stay where you are!”

MIT Student

“Hey. Ah, it slipped my mind. It’s eight hundred, right? That’s predatory. I… I built the whole robotic hand. You just corrected the grip algorithm. Thanks.”

Wakanda 1

“We are finishing a sequence now. Princess, you should go be by his side.”


“We give thanks for the gift of King T’Challa. The Black Panther. Son of King T’Chaka. We release you. Praise the ancestors.”


“It is an honor for me… to invite her majesty, Queen Ramonda, daughter of Lumumba, sovereign ruler of the kingdom of Wakanda.”

“I now give the floor to Her Majesty, Queen Ramonda.”

US Secretary of State

“Mr. Chairperson, I believe I speak for all the member states here when I say that I am deeply disappointed in Wakanda’s failure to stand by promises to participate in global efforts to tackle international challenges, to share resources, and full cooperation concerning vibranium.”


“France has information that vibranium can be used to make weapons of mass destruction. It does not trigger any known metal detector. It is a threat to global security and the non-proliferation regime.”

Wakanda 2

“I just lost security visuals.”

French Rogue Forces

“Down on your stomachs right now! Face to the floor! Go! Go! Where are the vibranium tools? Who has access?”

“Cabin pressure is stable “

Dr. Graham

“All right. Meet you down there. Hey! I thought you retired! They said that machine had a one in a billion chance of finding vibranium. Here we go.”

“Copy you. Perfect. So, Salazar, you are near the site right there. Let’s go ahead and get the detector out of there, since it’s the only one we’ve got. Okay, Salazar, we just went dark. Copy that. I’m gonna fix it up here. Hang on. Salazar’s heart rate. Hey, uh, Salazar, can you give me a visual?”

“Salazar, uh. we just lost Jackson’s vitals. Can you see him? Can you clarify? What do you mean by, ‘he’s gone?’ Salazar, do you copy? Salazar? What’s that sound? Hey, Smitty, earplugs. We are under attack. You need to send in a strike team immediately.”

“It’s the Wakandans. It has to be. Smitty, we gotta go. Let’s go. Go, go, go, go! Now! Go! Spin! Spin them off! Just get us out. Where is the strike team? It wasn’t the Wakandans. They… they were blue. Everyone is dead… shit. What is going on? Oh, my God.”

US Navy Ship

“This is Rotor 625 requesting clearance to land. Yeah. I thought I had too. Oh, less than that.”

“Cabin pressure is stable at negative one P.S.I. AT 800 feet, passing through thermocline. All my life supports in the green. We’ve touched down. Yeah, it’s astonishing. The drill seemed to make contact with a metallic substance. Whatever it is, it’s solid. I’ve never seen a drill bit chewed up like this before.”

“Vibranium in the ocean. Heading towards the vibranium detector. Yeah. The rig lost power. What the hell was that? Jackson, tell me you’re seeing this? It’s a phantom jellyfish. I’ve never seen one this color. Emergency dive team, stand by.”

“No. He’s gone.”

“Smitty, we got a situation out here. West, you got a visual on what’s making that sound? West, how copy, over? West. you got a visual? It’s some kind of sonic attack.”

“Copy. Mayday, mayday, this is Rotor 625. We are requesting assistance immediately. Henderson. Henderson! What’s going on? Get off the edge.”

“Okay. They’re gone! Oh, my God! We’re good. We’re good. We’re getting pulled backwards. Oh, God! Hang on!”

Anderson Cooper

“Queen Ramonda of the nation of Wakanda gave an electrifying speech at the UN yesterday, while members of her military escorted captive mercenaries onto the floor of the UN. A year has passed since Queen Romanda was reinstated as ruler of Wakanda after King T’Challa’s sudden death from an undisclosed illness last year. All eyes are on the tiny, powerful nation, as it find itself increasingly isolated… “




“T’Challa, T’Challa, T’Challa, T’Challa, T’Challa, T’Challa.”
