Emotions and big debuts in the Black Panther

At the end of the Marvel Studios panel at San Diego Comic-Con, the first trailer of Black Panther: Wakanda Forever was finally shown, the sequel to the film with the late Chadwick Boseman released in theaters in 2018.

The video seems to honor the legacy of the actor who sadly passed away in 2020 due to a tumor. We do not yet know who the new Black Panther will be, but in the trailer it is possible to take a look at the official debut in the MCU of Namor, the Atlantean hero and great protagonist of the comics. Also present Ironheart and the character of Everett Ross, played by Martin Freeman.

Black Panther: Wakana Forever, directed once again by Ryan Cogler, will be released in theaters on November 11 and will effectively close Phase 4 of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. The cast includes Letitia Wright (Shuri), Angela Bassett (Ramonda), Lupita Nyong'o (Nakia), Danai Gurira (Okoye), Winston Duke (M'Baku).

In fact, T’Challa will not be played by a new actor, nor even recreated in CGI, since the film will first of all tell the story of the world of Wakanda and all the other characters seen in the first film. No mention, for the moment, of the possible presence of Doctor Destino, the famous comic book villain. It has long been rumored how it might look in the film, but for many it will be one of the surprises in post-credits scenes.

‘Black Panther: Wakanda Forever’ Trailer: Chadwick Boseman Is Gone, but Not Forgotten

Marvel Studios ended its long-awaited return to San Diego Comic-Con with a big splash, giving fans their first look at the trailer for “Black Panther: Wakanda Forever.”

The emotional footage shows the cast of “Black Panther” coping with the reality of a world without Chadwick Boseman’s T’Challa. Set to a rendition of Bob Marley’s “No Woman, No Cry,” fans get to check in with returning favorites like Lupita Nyong’o and Letitia Wright while also meeting some exciting new characters. As has long been rumored, Tenoch Huerta plays Namor, the Submariner. He’s joined by Mabel Cadena as Namora and Dominique Thorne as Ironheart.

While the studio has faced some large challenges as it built out its Marvel Cinematic Universe, few (if any) were as daunting as continuing the “Black Panther” franchise after Chadwick Boseman’s tragic death in 2020. Boseman’s performance as T’Challa anchored the groundbreaking superhero movie, and he was considered by many to be one of the cornerstones of the MCU moving forward. The studio opted not to recast the role, instead focusing on the supporting cast for the upcoming sequel.


As Boseman’s shadow will inevitably loom large over any subsequent “Black Panther” movies, the cast and crew have been open about the fact that their new film makes no attempt to replace the late star, and rather believe that Boseman would see the new film as a tribute to his legacy.

“It feels spiritually and emotionally correct to do this,” Lupita Nyong’o said. “And hopefully, what I do look forward to, is getting back together and honoring what he started with us and holding his light through it. Because he left us a lot of light that we’re still going to be bathing in. I know that for sure.”

“I’m incredibly sad to lose him but I’m also incredibly motivated that I got to spend time with him,” Ryan Coogler explained. “You spend your life hearing about people like him. For this individual, who is an ancestor now, I was there for it. It’s such an incredible privilege that fills you up as much as it knocks you out. So often as Black people, we have to pick up the pieces after loss.”

“Black Panther: Wakanda Forever” was directed by Coogler, working from a script he co-wrote with Joe Robert Cole. Many of the original cast members are reprising their roles, including Lupita Nyong’o as Nakia, Letitia Wright as Shuri, Danai Gurira as Okoye, Winston Duke as M’Baku, Florence Kasumba as Ayo, and Martin Freeman as Everett K. Ross.

Disney will release “Black Panther: Wakanda Forever” in theaters on November 11. Watch the official trailer below:
