Black Panther Post Credit Scenes Explained
PSA – There are two Black Panther post credit scenes in the movie which stars Chadwick Boseman and Ryan Coogler.
So before we go any further, a spoiler alert is in order.
Still here? Alright.
Black Panther Post Credit Scene # 1
The first Black Panther post credit scene features a gathering in the UN with T’Challa (Boseman), Shuri (Letitia Wight), Okoye (Danai Gurira) and Nakiya (Lupita Nyong’O).
T’Challa tells the member of the UN that the nation of Wakanda will no longer hide and will be more proactive and share their intel and technology.
A member of the UN then reminds King T’Challa that Wakanda is a third world country and asks what they could possibly share.
This is pretty much a follow up to what T’Challa promised at the end of the movie. No more hiding and no more turning a blind eye. Its vague though what T’Challa would do after getting that response from one of the U.N. representatives. With Martin Freeman’s Everett Ross smiling in the background, there’s a sense of something grand.
He could show off some of Wakanda’s tech or he could even don the Black Panther costume. We will never know though.
Also this was Boseman’s “I am Iron Man” moment minus the RDJ quirks.
Black Panther Post Credit Scenes # 2
In the second scene we see three Wakandan kids looking down at the camera. Something stirs and they run out of the hut. We’re back in Wakanda with Shuri surveying the surroundings when somebody emerges from the hut. It’s Bucky Barnes, still armless and dressed in Wakandan garb.
They talk a bit where we learn the Winter Soldier’s referred to as the “White Wolf”.
Shuri and Bucky walk away from the screen and the scene closes with a nice view of a lake.
I guess its teasing Bucky’s invested interest in Wakanda. Too bad its never mentioned if they cleared his mental conditioning, which was the main reason he went back on ice in Civil War.
I feel this scene was great and I wish we had one more to at least show where the last Infinity Stone is in Wakanda. Because hey, Thanos is invading Wakanda and its not likely because of the Vibranium.
The Shuri-Bucky scene also makes the timeline confusing for casual viewers. How long has it been since Civil War? Has it been months? Years? No, this scene kinda made it interesting while at the same time opens a can of question worms.
Black Panther opens today from Walt Disney Studios PH. Stars Chadwick Boseman and directed by Ryan Coogler.
