The Latest ‘Wakanda Forever’ Trailer Features First Look at the New Black Panther

The new action-packed trailer for Black Panther: Wakanda Forever has been released one month ahead of its premiere on November 11.

We’re inching closer to the November 11 premiere of Black Panther: Wakanda Forever. On Monday (October 3), Marvel debuted a new trailer for the long-awaited Black Panther sequel, along with an official movie poster featuring stars Letitia Wright, Winston Duke, Lupita Nyong’o, Angela Bassett and Danai Gurira.

In the trailer’s opening, it appears that Wakandans are holding a memorial for the late King T’Challa, as new superhero Namor (Tenoch Huerta) paints an interior using a shell. M’Baku (Duke) title’s Namor “the Feathered Serpent God” while additional new characters Riri Williams/Ironheart (Dominique Thorne) and Aneka (Michaela Coel) are also revealed. The remainder of the 2-minute trailer shows Nakia (Nyong’o), Shuri (Wright), Okoye (Gurira) and Ironheart spring into action to defend Wakanda.

“They have lost their protector,” Queen Ramonda says about Wakandans losing their former king.

The film comes two years since the September 2020 passing of Chadwick Boseman, who played the titular character in the MCU. In a new interview with Entertainment Weekly, director Ryan Coolger shared that he reworked his original 2018 outline of the sequel following Boseman’s death.

“What we were after was just making it feel tactile, even though it felt like a dream,” Coogler said. “The film should feel like a really wild dream that you would have, but where everything felt like it was really there.”

Watch the Wakanda Forever trailer below. Tickets for the film are available now on Fandingo.
