Disney and Marvel Studios have announced that “Black Panther: Wakanda Forever” tickets are available for purchase. And to commemorate, they have also released a brand-new trailer that reveals some more of the plot while teasing some shots of Riri Williams (Dominique Thorne) in her new Iron Heart suit, and a shot of the new Black Panther, whose identity has yet to be revealed. And shots of Namor (Tenoch Huerta) taking his war to the surface.
Just as the first trailer did, “Black Panther: Wakanda Forever” will respectfully address the tragic passing of Chadwick Boseman in a way that honors him and the character. As such, Disney and Marvel Studios will not be recasting the role of T’Challa. However, we did see glimpses of a new Black Panther. Fans speculate that the role could go to Shuri based on royal blood line rules. Of course, that would mean she would also need to participate in Challenge Day in order to keep that title, so we will have to wait and see if they keep any of that. And according to some ticketing sites, they could have that as “Black Panther: Wakanda Forever” is one of the longest Marvel Studios films to date.
Overall, we get to hear more about Namor, as M’Baku (Winston Duke) tells the story of Kukulkan, the feathered serpent god. Though little is known about him, we get to see Mayan and Aztec influences in some of the details of the costume design. Not only that, but we also get to see that Namor is not just any king, but one who will throw himself into the action so that he can defend his kingdom.
But the most important aspect of this is how we overhear Queen Ramonda telling someone off screen to “show them who we are.” As she finishes her request, we see the new Black Panther, who appears to be a woman, make her superhero entrance into the MCU.
“Black Panther: Wakanda Forever” opens in theaters on November 11, 2022.
Here’s the official plot synopsis for “Black Panther: Wakanda Forever:”
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.
