A new poster for Black Panther: Wakanda Forever, released at San Diego Comic Con, pays tribute to the late Chadwick Boseman and his portrayal of T’Challa.
Chadwick Boseman sadly passed away in 2020, following a battle with cancer. He had first appeared as T’Challa, the Black Panther, in Captain America: Civil War and went on to play the character in a solo movie and the two-part Avengers epic, Infinity War and Endgame.
Black Panther: Wakanda Forever will focus on the other inhabitants of Marvel’s Wakanda and pay tribute to Chadwick Boseman, exploring the legacy of his character in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
Wakanda Remembers T’Challa
A new poster for Black Panther: Wakanda Forever was unveiled at San Diego Comic-Con, showing Shuri, Nakia and Ramonda looking solemn as they give a Wakandan salute before the image of T’Challa.
The film’s first trailer also screened at SDCC and revealed Wakanda Forever would address T’Challa’s death and its impact on those who were closest to him. While the world may have lost Chadwick Boseman, it is clear his presence will still be felt in the Black Panther sequel.
The film’s new poster, featuring Chadwick Boseman’s Black Panther, can be seen below:
The legacy of the Black Panther will apparently continue beyond T’Challa, with Wakanda Forever‘s trailer teasing the arrival of a new Black Panther. It is not yet clear who will be adopting the iconic black suit, though Shuri and Nakia have proven popular theories amongst fans.
Here is the synopsis for the first Black Panther:
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.
