The first trailer for the upcoming MCU film Black Panther: Wakanda Forever dropped at San Diego Comic-Con.
After much anticipation, Marvel Studios finally dropped the first official trailer for their upcoming sequel, Black Panther: Wakanda Forever. Obviously, the production surrounding the film has had to deal with the tragic passing of the original film’s star, Chadwick Boseman. However, this new sequel featuring Ryan Coogler back in the director’s chair looks to further explore Wakanda and its many inhabitants in this new MCU story.

Who runs Wakanda now?
This new trailer for the sequel brings audiences back to Wakanda for the first time since 2019’s Avengers: Endgame, in which we briefly see King T’Challa (Chadwick Boseman), and his family together again after being blipped away by Thanos (Josh Brolin). Given that Marvel Studios opted to not recast the role of T’Challa, this film will introduce the new Black Panther, and spotlight where the country’s place in the world (and the rest of the broader MCU) is now.
Here is the synopsis for the first film:
After the death of his father, the king of Wakanda, young T’Challa returns home to the isolated high-tech African nation to succeed to the throne and take his rightful place as king. But when a powerful enemy reappears, T’Challa’s mettle as king – and Black Panther – is tested when he’s drawn into a formidable conflict that puts the fate of Wakanda and the entire world at risk. Faced with treachery and danger, he must release the full power of Black Panther to defeat his foes and secure the safety of his people and their way of life.
Directed by Ryan Coogler, the MCU film stars Chadwick Boseman, Michael B. Jordan, Lupita Nyong’o, Danai Gurira, Martin Freeman, Daniel Kaluuya, Letitia Wright, Winston Duke, Angela Bassett, Forest Whitaker, and Andy Serkis.
Black Panther: Wakanda Forever will hit theaters on November 11, 2022. Stay tuned for all the latest news on the upcoming MCU film, and subscribe to Heroic Hollywood’s YouTube channel for more original content.
