Marvel Pictures has released a new and more lengthy trailer for its forthcoming movie ‘Black Panther: Wakanda Forever’ coming to cinemas 11th of November.
Earlier this year, fans were treated to a preview that featured Nigerian songstress Tems’ cover of Bob Marley’s No Woman No Cry.
The new trailer which dropped this week opens with Queen Ramonda (Angela Bassett), and her daughter Princess Shuri (Letitia Wright) mourning the passing of T’Challa, the Black Panther. This serves as the franchise’s farewell to the beloved Chadwick Boseman who played the role of T’Challa and passed away in 2020 following a private battle with cancer.
The trailer also introduces us to the villain Kukulcan, the Feather Serpent God and shows breakout British actress Michaela Coel who makes her Marvel debut in this movie.
Following Boseman’s death, there have been speculations on who would step into the Black Panther role. Speculations have pointed to Winston Duke who played M’baku while others suggested Marvel would lean towards a female panther with Letitia Wright who played Princess Shuri.
Kevin Feige, Marvel Studios president, addressed this in a recent interview. According to Feige, the coming Black Panther movie would be a different type of movie: “One without T’Challa at its center, though still very much about his legacy”. Feige said. “Marvel made the decision not to recast the role, and instead found a different approach for the sequel and the ongoing story of Wakanda a move taken to honour Boseman”
