Marvel Entertainment has released the poster, full trailer and some early images for the upcoming release of the sequel to Black Panther, Black Panther: Wakanda Forever.
For completion’s sake, we’ll include the deeply emotional teaser trailer they released two months ago.
After the tragic death of its star Chadwick Boseman, it remained to be seen how the franchise would continue, especially since Marvel announced that they wouldn’t recast the part of T’Challa. Going by the new trailer, it would appear that his sister Shuri, played by Letitia Wright, is going to take over the mantle. This tracks with the comics, but we’re not entirely sure it’s a done deal. Any number of women could be under that mask (a tribute to just how engaging and heroic the female characters in the first film were) and whenever something appears obvious in a trailer, you should probably refrain from jumping to conclusions. There has to be a reason you don’t see who the new Black Panther is, right? We also get to see quite a bit more of Tenoch Huerta as one of the oldest superhero characters of all time, Namor, once known as The Sub-Mariner. We LOVELOVELOVE the reimagining of this character by giving him an Aztec background he never had in the comics. After DC cast Jason Momoa as the formerly Aryan-appearing Aquaman, it just made good sense for Marvel to rethink its own underwater king. In other news, this will likely be one of the most beautiful films the superhero genre has ever seen:
It is, quite honestly, the first Marvel release since Avengers: Endgame that has us excited. Most of Marvel’s output in the last few years has been underwhelming to us. The MCU needs a creative reset and this looks like the film that can bring it back to its epic, emotional, game-changing cinematic roots. Go and get that Oscar nom, Angela.
In the film, Queen Ramonda (Angela Bassett), Shuri (Letitia Wright), M’Baku (Winston Duke), Okoye (Danai Gurira) and the Dora Milaje (including Florence Kasumba) fight to protect their nation from intervening world powers in the wake of King T’Challa’s death. As the Wakandans strive to embrace their next chapter, the heroes must band together with the help of War Dog Nakia (Lupita Nyong’o) and Everett Ross (Martin Freeman) and forge a new path for the kingdom of Wakanda. Introducing Tenoch Huerta as Namor, king of Talokan, the film also stars Dominique Thorne, Michaela Coel, Mabel Cadena and Alex Livinalli.
“Black Panther: Wakanda Forever,” directed by Ryan Coogler and produced by Kevin Feige and Nate Moore, opens in theaters November 11, 2022.
