Bringing to you the exhilarating story of a nation without a leader, a family without a son and the classic Marvel storytelling excellence, Black Panther: Wakanda Forever, will be streaming on Disney+ Hotstar from February 1 in English, Hindi, Malayalam, Tamil and Telugu. Ever thought of Allu Arjun playing the character of Namor? The unique charisma and expressive dialogue of Tollywood actors could bring a new dimension to the film, which features a strong and expressive cast – Letitia Wright, Lupita Nyong’o, Angela Bassett, Tenoch Huerta, Winston Duke, and more. Here’s our dream tollywood casting for an Indian version of Black Panther: Wakanda Forever
Ramya Krishnan as Queen Ramonda (Angela Bassett)
Queen Ramonda is a powerful, just and fierce queen who will do anything to protect and defend her children. Ramya Krishnan has previously played robust and powerful characters, specifically mothers who will do anything for their kids. Ramya Krishnan could play the role of Queen Ramonda and capture her essence perfectly.
Rashmika Mandanna as Shuri (Letitia Wright)
Shuri is the sole heir to Wakanda and to the mantle of the Black Panther for which she must fight against her enemies and rule with grace. She is a warrior and a scientist, struggling between her duty and her passion. Rashmika Madanna would match this role wonderfully, settling into the character seamlessly to shine as the lead.
Regina Cassandra as Okoye (Danai Gurira)
Okoye is a strong general with an iron will and the fighting skills to match. Regina Cassandra, having played similar roles of headstrong woman with fighting spirit, would be able to bring justice to the character of Okoye. Her vast experience in the film industry means that she has the skills to bring the right amount of depth and complexity that Okoye’s role requires.
Samantha Ruth Prabhu as Nakia (Lupita Nyong’o)
Nakia is smart and tenacious in nature, being extremely resourceful as a trained spy. She is also resilient, being a single parent and building a life away from her country. Samantha Ruth Prabhu has both the grit and the versatility to play such a strong and multi-layered character.
