Marvel Studios has revealed the first teaser trailer for ‘Black Panther: Wakanda Forever’ during its panel presentation at San Diego Comic-Con, this Saturday. Kevin Feige confirmed that the film is the final title in MCU Phase 4. “Black Panther: Wakanda Forever” will release in theaters on November 11, 2022.
Marvel Studios 'Black Panther: Wakanda Forever' closed up the Hall H presentation to huge roars and acclaim, opening with a live performance by Baaba Maal (vocals), Massamba Diop (tama), dancers, and drummers. For a Q&A and first look at the film's first trailer, Feige was joined on stage by director Ryan Coogler and cast members Mabel Cadena, Michaela Cole, Winston Duke, Danai Gurira, Tenoch Huerta, Florence Kasumba, Alex Livinalli, Lupita Nyong'o, Dominique Thorne, and Letitia Wright.
The trailer (watch above) begins with the mourning of the death of King T'Challa and gives us the first look at the returning characters from the first film. The trailer reveals the first look at the new characters - Namor played by Tenoch Huerta and Dominique Thorne as Riri Williams. The trailer ends with teasing the new Black Panther, who could be Shuri (Letitia Wright), M’Baku (Winston Duke), or someone we didn't expect.
In the wake of King T’Challa’s death, Queen Ramonda (Angela Bassett), Shuri (Letitia Wright), M'Baku (Winston Duke), Okoye (Danai Gurira), and the Dora Milaje (including Florence Kasumba) fight to safeguard their homeland from intervening foreign powers in Marvel Studios' "Black Panther: Wakanda Forever." As the Wakandans attempt to embrace their next chapter, the heroes must band together and build a new path for the kingdom of Wakanda with the help of War Dog Nakia (Lupita Nyong'o) and Everett Ross (Martin Freeman).
Directed by Ryan Coogler from a script by Coogler and Joe Robert Cole, the film also stars Dominique Thorne, Michaela Coel, Mabel Cadena, and Alex Livanalli, as well as Tenoch Huerta as Namor, king of a hidden undersea nation.
In the comics, Atlantis is now ruled by Namor. Namor, the mutant-hybrid son of a human father and an Atlantean princess, has a pale complexion, unlike his Atlantean counterparts (who usually have blue skin). He is sometimes an ally, sometimes an enemy to the surface dwellers, because Namor's ultimate allegiance is to Atlantis and its people.
Namor is also rumored to be a villain in the film. The film will reportedly follow the story of the war with Atlantis. In the comics, Shuri, as Wakanda's queen, was involved in treaty negotiations with Namor, who offered to end the war between their two nations in exchange for refuge in Wakanda whenever he wanted. T'Challa was first offered this pact, which he refused. Shuri, like her brother, declined Namor's offer, explaining that the fight between the two nations was not an ordinary war and that the fate of both Wakanda and Atlantis was at stake; in the end, one of them would face ultimate devastation.
