Black Panther 2: Everything We Know About ‘Wakanda Forever’

Chadwick Boseman’s terrible death has left a big hole in the globe, both in terms of the very real loss and his abrupt departure from the ongoing Marvel Cinematic Universe. However, as they say, the show must go on, and Black Panther 2, officially known as Black Panther: Wakanda Forever, is presently in production. The film is anticipated to both honor the late actor and further develop the magnificent world he contributed to creating.

T’Challa’s part would not be recast for Black Panther: Wakanda Forever, Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige declared in December 2020. During Disney’s Investor’s Day session, Feige discussed the choice and said:

“The inspirational and extraordinarily gifted actor Chadwick Boseman had a positive impact on all of our lives, both professionally and personally. His interpretation of T’Challa the Black Panther is legendary and stands above all previous Marvel Studios portrayals of the character in various media. We won’t change the character’s casting as a result.”

Even though the King might not be present in the narrative, the sequel has a large cast of previous characters. Lupita Nyong’o, Danai Gurira, Florence Kasumba, Martin Freeman, Letitia Wright, Winston Duke, Angela Bassett, Tenoch Huerta, Michaela Coel, and Dominique Thorne are among the cast members of Black Panther: Wakanda Forever.

Does Black Panther: Wakanda Forever Have a Trailer?

On July 23, 2022, the first official trailer for Black Panther: Wakanda Forever was made public online. It debuted at San Diego Comic-Con. The trailer, which is set to Tems’ rendition of “No Woman No Cry” by Bob Marley and the Wailers remixed with Kendrick Lamar’s “Alright,” showcases the stunning visuals of the movie as Wakanda mourns the loss of King T’Challa and Namor gets Atlantis ready for battle. The Black Panther mantle will be assumed by one of Wakanda’s female citizens, the trailer teases.

What Is the Black Panther: Wakanda Forever Plot?

The script for Black Panther: Wakanda Forever has already revealed that it would be an emotional experience. The ensemble as a whole has discussed how unusual it is to make this movie without the adored star.

Winston Duke admitted to Collider in July 2021 that reading the script had been “extremely emotional.” “It was difficult to pack everything and return to the set. But now that we’ve become somewhat of a family, we all grieve together and are creating something very unique.”

The following is the Marvel Studios’ official plot summary:

Queen Ramonda (Angela Bassett), Shuri (Letitia Wright), M’Baku (Winston Duke), Okoye (Danai Gurira), and the Dora Milaje (featuring Florence Kasumba) battle to defend their country from interfering foreign forces in Marvel Studios’ “Black Panther: Wakanda Forever.” The heroes must work together with the aid of War Dog Nakia (Lupita Nyong’o) and Everett Ross (Martin Freeman) to pave a new course for the kingdom of Wakanda as the Wakandans attempt to embrace their next chapter. Along with Dominique Thorne, Michaela Coel, Mabel Cadena, Alex Livanalli, and Tenoch Huerta, the movie introduces Namor, played by Tenoch Huerta, as the ruler of a clandestine undersea nation.

In Iron Man 2 and Avengers: Endgame, there were easter eggs and casual remarks that hinted at the existence of Atlantis. In the comic books, there have been previous wars between Wakanda and Atlantis, which had very terrible repercussions. It will undoubtedly be quite a visual show if this ends up being the true narrative of the future movie. However, because Wakanda is a landlocked country, it is unclear how the Atlanteans intend to launch their attack. However, since it didn’t stop them in the comics, they’re likely to succeed here as well.
