Black Panther: Wakanda Forever is shaping up to be a unique adventure—even a strange one according to some cast members. It'll also be bittersweet as it is set to bid farewell to the late Chadwick Boseman's T'Challa.

The film will reportedly introduce new faces such as Namer and even Dominique Thorne as Riri Williams, who is set to go on to star in her own solo Disney+ series.

The project has been seen filming at MIT in Cambridge recently, a location that holds strong ties to Riri Williams in the comics. Williams has been spotted on set alongside both Shuri and Okoye. 

Now, even more glimpses of the set have been released, showcasing Letitia Wright's Shuri in a chase sequence.

Brand-new set photos emerged from production on Black Panther: Wakanda Forever, showing Shuri riding on a motorcycle with an orange Dodge Charger sharing the scene. A stunt person was also spotted in full Dora Milaje garb.

According to Just Jared, these photos were taken on August 21, 2021 and involved stunt chase sequences filmed by stunt professionals.

The first set of photos, posted by @MarvelTimesBR on Twitter, highlight a Shuri stunt double on the motorcycle:

The next batch of photos gives a better view of the Dodge Charger, which appears to be driven by a stunt double for Danai Gurira's Okoye:



It's known that the mysterious character on the Motorcycle is Shuri due to her outfit matching that of what star Letitia Wright wore on set for other scenes at MIT. As for what may be happening in the scene, that's harder to guess.

There's not really any context to be gained from any of the photographs, but it would seem that it could be another great chase sequence like fans saw in Black Panther.

These scenes were filmed before Wright's recent injury and potentially around the same time that Dominique Thorne was spotted as Riri Williams. There's no indication that the future hero Ironheart is directly involved with the action being filmed. Though, given her presence in the area, it's likely the character is at least indirectly related in some way.

Black Panther: Wakanda Forever hits theaters on July 8, 2022.
