Fans know exactly which ‘Black Panther: Wakanda Forever’ favorite needs a Disney Plus spinoff

One of the best characters in 'Wakanda Forever' more than deserves their own story.

There are many Disney Plus shows lined up for Phase Five and beyond of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, but fans of Black Panther: Wakanda Forever have plans for one more.

Winston Duke‘s M’Baku was an instant fan favorite after the 2018 film, and proceeded to steal every scene he was in in the 2022 sequel. As a result, MCU fans just can’t get enough of their Jabari favorite.

“They should definitely make a [Disney Plus] show about M’Baku,” one Reddit user said, adding that the character has plenty of potential for a great story, that could further develop the world of Wakanda.

Marvel fans in the comments all seem to double down on this idea, with the most upvoted reply referencing the already iconic delivery of the “K’uk’ulkan” quote by Duke in Wakanda Forever.

A couple of Redditors proposed the special presentation format which Marvel has been exploring with outings such as Werewolf by Night and The Guardians of the Galaxy Holiday Special. These are standalone television specials, which run a little longer than a normal episode but don’t quite enter feature film territory.

Winston Duke has previously shown a lot of enthusiasm for a M’Baku spin-off. “Say that again, so that everyone can hear it. Say that again, for the people in the back,” Duke told Collider‘s Christina Radish in September after she proposed the idea. He added that it would be “really cool” to explore the “rich culture” of the Jabari-Lands, as well as what his very particular character would be like “out in the world,” interacting with others.

There was already a Black Panther spin-off reportedly in the works at Disney, centered around Okoye and the Dora Milaje, which has apparently been put on hold, according to producer Nate Moore.

For now, it looks like fans will have to make do with Duke’s brilliant performance as M’Baku in Black Panther: Wakanda Forever, currently in theaters.
