In the new trailer for Black Panther: Wankanda Forever, we finally get a tease of how the story will acknowledge the death of Chadwick Boseman as the original Black Panther. By the end of the trailer (featuring, again, lots of badass women returning), a new female Black Panther appears, and it appears (or is at least teased) that it is Letitia Wright’s Shuri, a standout from the previous film. Yay!
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. Introducing Tenoch Huerta as Namor, king of Talokan, the film also stars Dominique Thorne, Michaela Coel, Mabel Cadena and Alex Livinalli.
Black Panther: Wakanda Forever, directed by Ryan Coogler and produced by Kevin Feige and Nate Moore, opens in theaters November 11, 2022.
