The first official trailer for Black Panther 2 a.k.a officially titled Black Panther: Wakanda Forever has been shown at San Diego Comic-Con.
Chadwick Boseman’s absence is felt in the two-minute teaser trailer – this is because the actor who played T’Challa in the Marvel hit movie passed away in August 2020, and his character has not been recast. We see Wakanda try to adjust to life without him as a nation in mourning, plus there’s a glimpse of someone else in the Black Panther suit.
The sequel to 2018’s Black Panther sees Letitia Wright back as T’Challa’s sister Shuri, as well as the return of Danai Gurira’s Okoye, Lupita Nyong’o’s Nakia, Winston Duke’s M’Baku, Angela Bassett’s Ramonda, and Martin Freeman’s Everett Ross.
It was just recently confirmed that Daniel Kaluuya will not be returning as W’Kabi due to scheduling conflicts with filming Jordan Peele’s latest movie, Nope.
The cast will also feature some newcomers, including Dominique Thorne as Riri Williams, AKA Ironheart, and Tenoch Huerta as Namor, the movie’s antagonist.
