A new Black Panther: Wakanda Forever trailer has dropped and it clearly shows the new Black Panther. It is a sequel to the 2018 film Black Panther, which starred Chadwick Boseman as the titular superhero. However, Boseman’s sad death means that a new actor will be taking up the mantle of Black Panther. The story of Wakanda Forever pays tribute to Chadwick Boseman and shows the aftermath of King T’Challa’s death. The film is directed by Ryan Coogler, who helmed the first film. Black Panther: Wakanda Forever stars Letitia Wright, Lupita Nyong’o, Danai Gurira, Winston Duke, Angela Bassett, Martin Freeman and Tenoch Huerta.
Watch the new trailer for Black Panther: Wakanda Forever below:
The new Black Panther 2 trailer gives us a good look at the upcoming battle for Wakanda following the death of King T’Challa. Tenoch Huerta plays Namor, the ruler of Talocon, an ancient underwater civilization. Huerta said in an interview that Namor is not a villain, but an anti-hero, and that T’Challa decided to join the surface world after publicly revealing the truth about Wakanda. The new trailer shows the people of Wakanda and Talokaan getting ready for war.
The trailer also builds to the reveal of the new Black Panther who will succeed King T’Challa. The new Black Panther has been rumored to be female and the trailer confirms this. But it is not yet clear who is behind this mask. Many believe that Shuri (played by Letitia Wright) is the new Black Panther. That will have to wait.
Black Panther: Wakanda Forever will be released on November 11, 2022. It is the last film in the fourth phase of the MCU.
