On Saturday at the Comic-Con in San Diego, Marvel Studios released the trailer for Black Panther: Wakanda Forever, which is slated for release on November 11th, 2022, four years after the first movie, which starred the late Chadwick Boseman and went on to become a record-breaking box office success.

Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige appeared in person at Hall H to reveal the upcoming projects under the Marvel Cinematic Universe and the trailer for Black Panther: Wakanda Forever, which he said is the final film of Marvel’s Phase 4 slate.

Black Panther: Wakanda Forever is written and directed by Ryan Coogler and is going to star Danai Gurira, Lupita Nyong’o, Letitia Wright, Angela Bassett, Winston Duke, Florence Kasumba, Martin Freeman, Michaela Coel, and many more characters that the audience will witness. Black Panther: Wakanda Forever is going to explore the incomparable world of Wakanda and all of the rich and varied characters introduced in the first film.

Ryan Coogler said at Comic-Con that it's been five years since he's been there and that he could feel Chadwick Boseman's hand on him right now, standing in front of everyone. Ryan Coogler added that even though Chadwick Boseman is no longer with us physically, but his spirits, his pride in culture, and his impact on the industry will be felt forever.

Later, the entire cast appeared on stage with an impressive musical introduction and emotions running through everyone. Actress Lupita Nyong’o said that they are ready to invite everyone back to Wakanda. Letitia Wright, who played Chadwick Boseman’s sister, Shuri in the movie, said that filming for Wakanda Forever felt like coming home, which is how Winston Duke described it as a labor of love, and added that he is filled with so much gratitude to be here.

Florence Kasumba shared with the Marvel fans that she is just excited for everyone to see how the film has turned out to be and added that they are extremely proud of it. In the movie's trailer, Tenoch Huerta debuts as Namor, monarch of an obscure undersea kingdom who is going to play the antagonist in the movie.

After the sudden and unfortunate death of actor Chadwick Boseman, who played the character of King T’Challa, the fans were left hanging with a question about whether the role would be re-casted with some other actor or not, but later it was announced by Marvel Studios that the role would not be re-casted with a different actor. But in the recently released trailer, the audience can see that someone is going to take the responsibilities, as the trailer ends with an unrecognized individual in a new Black Panther suit.

Daniel Kaluuya recently revealed that he is not a part of Black Panther: Wakanda Forever as he chose to star in the new Jordan Peele film, "Nope." The actor shared with Entertainment Tonight that he was always in prep and then the call came and he was not able to do it. Daniel clarified that there is absolutely no bad blood between him and Marvel Studios and he is very excited to see how Black Panther: Wakanda Forever has turned out and how the makers have decided to pay tribute to beloved actor Chadwick Boseman, who passed away in August 2020 after battling colon cancer privately. The actor mentioned that he has heard things and knows that they are going to do Chadwick Boseman an incredible service and that is what he cares about and mentioned that he cannot wait to watch the movie.

In April 2021, Lupita Nyong’o shared with Yahoo! Entertainment that her feelings about returning to Black Panther: Wakanda Forever are beyond excited. Regarding Black Panther: Wakanda Forever, she said that she is in a very reflective and contemplative mood. She also claimed that Chadwick's death is still very fresh for her and that she can't even begin to fathom what it would be like to be on set without him. According to Lupita, Ryan Coogler's screenplay thoughtfully addresses Chadwick Boseman's absence in the film because he grieves for his loss in much the same way that everyone else does. She also noted that the way he rewrote the second film is incredibly respectful of the loss we've all endured as a cast and as a world.
