The first trailer of the highly-anticipated Marvel movie 'Black Panther: Wakanda Forever' dropped at SDCC on July 23.
Black Panther: Wakanda Forever is going to be one of the biggest movies of 2022. Director Ryan Coogler revealed the first footage of Black Panther 2 at San Diego Comic-Con’s Marvel Studios panel.
The first Black Panther movie was one of the top-grossing movies of all time when released in 2018. The film is currently #13 on the all-time worldwide box office.
After the death of the main lead Chadwick from colon cancer in 2020 at the age of 43 the sequel may look very different due to the loss of Black Panther himself.
The trailer shows Nakia, Shuri, Ramonda, Okoye, and the rest of Wakanda coming together to mourn the loss of T’Challa.
The trailer also reveals the cast of Black Panther 2. Tenoch Huerta makes his first appearance as Namor, as well as Dominique Thorne as Riri Williams, a.k.a. Ironheart, and Michaela Coel as Aneka. .
Ramonda asks in the trailer “I am Queen of the most powerful nation in the world, and my entire family is gone! Have I not given everything?”
At the ending of the trailer a new character appears wearing the Black Panther suit. Is it Shuri, Nakia, or someone else?! We have to wait some more to get the answer.
Director Ryan Coogler said on stage. "We put our love for Chadwick into this film and we also put our passion. It’s a roller coaster of a movie.”
Coogler said in an interview at that time “I’d be really interested to see, you know, what kind of king he is with experience and how that affects his performance in the stories.”
Black Panther star Lupita Nyong’o revealed that Coogler has “reshaped” the Black Panther sequel to honor Chadwick.
