The highly anticipated sequel, Wakanda Forever, will hit theatres later this year, and now we have our first look at the action-packed trailer. During Marvel’s spectacular presentation on July 23, an emotional teaser was released, which confirmed that T’Challa would die in the storyline.
The eagerly awaited sequel to the Marvel Cinematic Universe rebooted production in January 2022 and was delayed for another week by Covid before wrapping in March 2022. Letitia Wright’s on-set injury necessitated a two-month hiatus from November 2021 to January 2022.
The sequel will be titled Black Panther: Wakanda Forever, which was announced in May of that year. The sequel, originally scheduled for release in May 2022, has now been pushed back to November 2022, and so far, everything appears to be on track for that date.
In order to honor Boseman, everyone involved in the production worked hard to make sure the film was accurate. A few months later, in May of 2022, Wright said, “We honored him by dedicating ourselves to continuing his tale and continuing the legacy he established with this franchise.”
When Will Wakanda Forever Be Released on Disney+?
The release date for Black Panther: Wakanda Forever is November 11, 2022.
Rumors circulated for some time that the film’s release date would be pushed back into 2023 due to a lack of progress on the project. It was only on March 13 when actress Dominique Thorne, who will portray Riri Williams/Ironheart in the film, came to Instagram to report that she had wrapped up filming her sequences.
A third delay is improbable given that Black Panther: Wakanda Forever is scheduled to open in theatres in less than five months. It’s unlikely that Marvel will reshuffle their 2023 film slate again if Black Panther 2 takes longer than expected. Let’s hope that doesn’t come to pass.
Who Will Return in Wakanda Forever?
The cast members which are expected to return include:
- Lupita Nyong’o as Nakia
- Letitia Wright as Shuri
- Danai Gurira as Okoye
- Winston Duke as M’Baku
- Angela Bassett as Ramonda
- Martin Freeman as Everett K Ross
- Dominique Thorne as Riri Williams
- Tenoch Huerta as Prince Namor
- Michaela Coel as TBC
- Isaach de Bankole as Wakandan River Tribe leader
- Dorothy Steel as Wakandan Merchant Tribe leader
- Danny Sapani as Wakandan Border Tribe leader
What Will Be the Storyline of Season 2?
A lot is unknown about the Black Panther: Wakanda Forever movie plot because of Marvel’s rigorous need-to-know policy.
After keeping his four-year struggle with cancer a secret for so long, Coogler originally worked on a script that would have included Boseman in the cast. For the past year, “I spent the last year preparing, picturing, and composing words for him to say, which we weren’t destined to see,” Coogler stated.
There’s something heartbreaking about the fact that I won’t be able to see him on the monitor again or approach him and ask for a second shot.
“What’s the point?” “The sequel will continue to explore the extraordinary world of Wakanda and all of the rich and varied characters featured in the first film,” Marvel stated during Disney’s 2020 Investor Day presentation. This concept was reaffirmed by Feige in an interview with Deadline in January 2021.
Wakanda is the setting for “so much of the comics and that first movie,” he noted. I believe that Wakanda is a great venue to further investigate characters and subcultures.
” The next story was always and initially centered around this one. It gives us great comfort to know that Ryan Coogler is hard at work on the script with all of the respect, love, and talent he possesses, so it was always about expanding the lore and inspiration of Wakanda. To honor and respect Chad’s continuous lessons and teachings is also a responsibility.”
Feige was aware of the possibilities of the Black Panther supporting cast as early as March 2018. “It’s a delicate balancing act,” he said in an interview with Entertainment Weekly. As a matter of fact, you’ll be seeing a lot more of Shuri in the future.” Okay, if Okoye were the only action star in the flicks, I’d watch three of them. However, I’m not saying that we’re actually doing it, but we’re interested in it.”
It appears that the movie will also deal with historical events such as Spain’s colonization of Central America. There will be a flashback sequence depicting Namor’s Aztec forefathers taking on the Spanish conquerers, according to MCU leaker CineStealth.
There are more and more films being made by Marvel that don’t shy away from exploring these kinds of themes, and if Namor is the film’s main enemy, it will be deserving of inclusion.
Black Panther Season 2: Trailer
After premiering at the San Diego Comic-Con in July 2022, the first official trailer for Black Panther: Wakanda Forever was released online on July 23rd, 2022.
In the trailer, which is set to a song of Bob Marley and the Wailers’ “No Woman No Cry” sung by Tems blended with Kendrick Lamar’s “Alright,” Wakanda mourns the death of King T’Challa while Namor prepares Atlantis for war. The teaser ends with a tease that one of Wakanda’s females would assume the role of Black Panther.
“Summer Break” was the working title for the film Black Panther: Wakanda Forever, which began production at Trilith Studios in Atlanta, Georgia on June 29, 2021.
For Ironheart’s MCU program, Black Panther 2 will be the bridge. Another Ironheart actor, Anthony Ramos, claims that director Ryan Coogler is involved in some manner. The next Black Panther film will feature Ironheart, so that seems quite likely as well.
