‘Black Panther: Wakanda Forever’ Blu-Ray Details: Release Date, Deleted Scenes Feature Okoye And Everett Ross

While it has already been revealed that Black Panther: Wakanda Forever would hit Disney+ on February 1st, we’re now getting information on the physical release. While unconfirmed by Disney, Blu-ray.com says the film will hit DVD, Blu-ray, and 4K Ultra HD on February 7th.

In terms of special features, you’ll get the usual audio commentary, a gag reel, and a couple of featurettes. But what’s going to be most interesting are the deleted scenes, which heavily feature Danai Gurira’s Okoye, and what she went through after being stripped of her title as leader of the Dora Milaje.

We also get a deleted scene with Martin Freeman’s Everett K. Ross. I would say between Ross and Okoye these characters’ story arcs were the least satisfying, so these scenes are good to see.

And is this great cover art for the steelbook releases, or what? Showing both sides of the coin, one features Shuri and the people closest to her, while the other has Namor and the warriors by his side. Very cool and I’m definitely getting those.
