The First Trailer For ‘Black Panther 2’ Reveals Marvel’s Emotional Return To Wakanda And Namor’s War.
The first trailer for “Black Panther 2: Wakanda Forever” brings fans back to Wakanda.
There are several lyrical themes in the trailer, notably Kendrick Lamar’s song “Alright,” and images of Wakanda’s aquatic environments, futuristic technology, and what appears to be a funeral with crowds of Wakandans dressed in white, which moves between images of Wakanda’s aquatic environments and futuristic technology.
“Ramonda, the Queen of the most powerful nation in the world, declares that her entire family has died, and she is the only one to be left,” said Angela Bassett’s Ramonda.
This trailer raises a question that lingers in the minds of fans: who will take on the mantle of the Black Panther? Towards the end of the trailer, a figure is seen wearing a suit that resembles that of the hero, however, the identity of the person wearing the suit is not revealed.
The trailer was announced at the end of Marvel Studios’ massive panel at San Diego Comic-Con, which featured a group of traditional African singers performing a fanfare before traditional African drummers led the way.
Ryan Coogler, the writer-director of the first “Black Panther” film, then took the stage for a discussion about the sequel, as he reflected on the death of the series’ former star, Chadwick Boseman, who passed away last week.
In August 2020, Boseman, who played the lead role, T’Challa, passed away after a long battle with colon cancer that he fought privately for four years.
In Coogler’s words, “it’s going to be hard to follow up on that, but we’ll make sure we do,” he said. I haven’t been here for five years now.
It seems like yesterday when I was here. The late great Chadwick Boseman was sitting beside me as we premiered the first footage from the upcoming movie Black Panther 1 in about the same spot where I sat watching the premiere.
During the first viewing of the footage, Coogler shared that Boseman was squeezing his shoulder and teasing the director. My promise to you is that I can feel his hand on me right now, I promise you that.
In addition, Coogler offered some information regarding the sequel, in which he stated, “It goes to new places within Wakanda that you haven’t seen before; it goes to new places within the Marvel Cinematic Universe as well.”
Lupita Nyong’o, Letitia Wright, Danai Gurira, Florence Kasumba, and Winston Duke are some of the stars of the upcoming film “Black Panther” which was introduced by Coogler during Comic-Con.
Duke said, “I am so grateful to be a part of this labor of love and to be able to share it with all of you,” of the sequel, adding that it is truly a labor of love.
“It is a blessing to be able to do this. As a family, we have grown so much and it feels great to be able to see you guys and honor our big brother at the same time.
Newcomers to the series such as Michaela Coel, Dominique Thorne, Alex Nivilani, Mabel Cadena, and Tenoch Huerta also took part in the panel discussion.
Huerta will play Marvel Comics’ favorite Namor, the Submariner, in the upcoming film based on the comic book series.
It’s an honor for me to be here, and I am so glad to be here, Huerta said. Inclusion is something that I would like to say very quickly.
Due to inclusion, I have been able to reach this level of success. I come from the hood. Without inclusion, I would not be where I am today.
There are a lot of kids in the hood who look at us and dream of one day being here like us. It’s going to be a great day for them! There is no way they will fail!”
Coel expressed her gratitude towards the musicians and dancers who performed to open the panel, stating that “it was really special to see the drummers and dancers”.
Having the opportunity to be a part of this cast reminded me what a privilege it was to support them.
According to Wright, the passing of Boseman had a profound impact on the cast, and the new film was in many ways “an incredible honor” for the late actor to be remembered in such a way.
In order to honor him, we commit ourselves to continue with the story he started, the legacy he left behind with this franchise,” Wright told Variety.
Throughout the entire production, we managed to commit to working hard every single day, no matter what circumstances we faced – and there were a lot of circumstances, a lot of difficult situations – but we came together as a team, and we poured everything we had into this film, so I am looking forward to you seeing it.”
“The Black Panther: Wakanda Forever” is set to hit the big screen on Nov. 11, 2022, in U.S. theaters.
